@DreamyViridi Welcome back! Some of the others from the original aren't around much anymore... but we still have plenty of players!

Glad you got a Switch - Splatoon 2 certainly won't disappoint!

Hey, good to see you, @Blue_Blur!

I've had the game for a bit now. Octo Valley's main story is done, at least B- in all Ranks, Level 14 so far. Again, it's good to be back. I'm just happy to retire from the first game. The amount of Damage-Up and connection shenanigans was really getting to me.

@DreamyViridi Yeah, I haven't played the first game since the sequel came out, and don't miss any of the old abilities or specials. In fact, I think the sequel is better in just about every way (except maybe for the final boss, but that's not a big deal to me anyway. ). And with all the updates, it just keeps getting better and better!

@Blue_Blur Completely on the same page with this. I loved the original, but looking back I'm thankful for just about every change the sequel has brought.

The only real thing I can think of that I preferred from the original was the hub. It felt like an amphitheater and a gateway to the rest of the city. And the elevated section make the whole thing feel more 3 dimensional, even if it didn't add anything functionally. The new Square is cool, but basically feels like a trendy alley rather than a window to the Inkling world.

@Maxz Agreed. It feels weird saying that I don't really miss the original, as I've put over 400 hours into it, (worth it! XD) but Splatoon 2 is really that much better!

Ah yes, the plaza... I've forgotten about it, but now that you mention it, I really miss it, too. I remember everyone wanting the plaza in the sequel to be bigger and include more of the city, but unfortunately, the exact opposite happened, more or less. And still parts of it seem empty with not much to do... there are a couple cool new features, but it's definitely a letdown in comparison.

And surprisingly, I miss the upstairs floor more than anything; even though, like you said, it did absolutely nothing. So I guess the original still has a couple things going for it... but not enough to go back to it.

I loved the original as well, though, this was before I was a regular on this site. Haven't played it as much as I have Splatoon 2, though, as my ambitions of reaching Level 50 before heading back to university that October lead to an overall frustration-filled experience and me quitting the game.

I do like almost all the improvements they made from the original, especially the Square, the revamped Specials and the QoL changes in regards to getting the abilities you want on the gear you want. I'm a bit iffy on the changes they made to Quick Respawn, which is now rendered useless, and Ninja Jump, which still shows your landing position if the opposition is far enough away like a Charger. Certainly using Super-jump way less often.

Gotta return to Splatoon 1 someday before the servers shut down. Haven't seen any stage past Hammerhead Bridge.

Has anyone received any friend requests from within Splatoon? I've got a couple, but I'm not really sure what the benefit really is. I mean, the only contact I've had with them is as strangers through the game, and the main benefit of adding someone is that you can play with them whenever. But given that they're strangers, it wouldn't be much different from just going on Ranked and playing with strangers there...

@Maxz I‘ve received plenty of friend requests and there‘s never been one I wouldn’t accept. I find it neat to play with them again, especially if you have a self-established feud with that annoying guy you just can‘t splat for the life of you to get sweet sweet revenge.

I must admit, with all of this new content that we've been blessed with recently, the fact that we are also due to get a new stage this month (and another - Arowana Mall - in February) had rather slipped my mind! ..just had another glance at it and it looks totally FRESH!

...fairly likely that we'll get it in the next week too! Nice!

After a day of zero Swim Speed Up chunks despite using three out of my four Swim Speed Up drinks and wearing two Krak-On-branded pieces of gear, Lord Iwata smiled down upon me and granted me a perfect gear of three slots filled with Swim Speed Up. Some might call me a fool for having such luck and having them scrubbed anyway but perfect gear is not what I need.

Anyway, finished up my Special Charge Up Set and Stealth Jump shoes. Next time I scrub my gear, I can finish up my Special Forces Beret. It looks so sick, I love it!

@Blue_Blur Completely agree about the specials, that was my biggest complaint about the first. Gone are the invulnerable, get out of jail free cards. Point sensors and mines are more useful without map wide detection specials. And all of the new specials have weaknesses, so they offer more tactical choices when to use them.

It‘s official: Today, I‘ve seen two Inklings with a level of over 99, at which point you get a star added to your current level and start at the very beginning (Level 1*). I don‘t even wanna know how many hours they‘ve played total.

Also, just 17 Swim Speed Up chunks and 29 Ink Recover Up chunks until I‘ve finished up my collection. Officially run out of Drink Tickets for the two so I‘ve resorted to Cash Food for now.

@GoldenGamer88 Ahhh! I was wondering how you'd be able to tell! The 'level reset' function seems to be a smart addition really, considering that Splatfest's will eventually come to an end (making levelling up the only way to earn Sea Snails) - and it's nice to have a * as a badge of honour that you can take forward too ..I only have about 43 levels to go before I get one!

I, too, am also slowly chipping away at my Chunk grind - and, rather like yourself, the Drink Tickets that I need have unfortunately dried up! ..I've managed to get myself some reasonably fresh looking Gear to grind Ink Recovery with (with mains still tailored to my play style) so those Chunks should still roll in relatively quickly - but I have some pretty sweet looking clothing items that still need a slot or two added to them, so now seems as good a time as any to eat some Meals and shift my attention to levelling up instead (for them precious Snails!) ..so it's all good!

Really looking forward to the Splatfest! I accidentally missed the last one (got my weekends mixed up - doh!) so can't wait to take part this time around!

@NaviAndMii Honestly, I‘m kinda bummed out they raised the level cap this high. No matter the game, I always need a goal to strife for. Yet with me at Level 61 out of the possible Level 99*, the meaning of leveling up has lost most of its appeal as it‘ll take a good while until reaching that level. I know this is intentional but playing games for the fun alone just isn‘t particularly interesting to me. That‘s why I play Overwatch only in short bursts and not for days on end like Splatoon 2.

Honestly, I‘ve gotten more chunks without drinks than I got with them. I think by the time we‘ll get the results, the rerolls I‘ll earn from super sea snails are all I need to finish up my collection, so that‘s already reason enough to look forward to this weekend.

With it being global, we seriously need to get a team together. I for one am fighting for Team Action.

Rocking those B&W Arrow shoes right now. Pure. Bomb. Defense.

Never leave home without it. You have no idea how many close call TentaMissles, Splatbombs, and Burst bombs you die to.

So I was away for a hot hour to gather the final Swim Speed Up chunks and Nintendo decided to release the Direct in that very hour. Thanks a lot for that. Anyway, after giving me a whole zero of them yesterday to the point that I went Ink Recovery chunks farming out of frustration, Lord Iwata once again smiled down upon me and not only gave us the Nintendo Direct Mini but also showered me with Swim Speed chunks in the matter of two hours.

Now, my Run Speed Set as well as my Sub Power Up shoes (that‘ll probably be part of a Set later down the line) are finished, leaving only 20 Ink Recovery chunks to be collected. I know I mentioned I needed less than that a few days ago but that stupid Comeback cap was on a different page and I forgot to count it. I‘m positive that I‘ll be able to collect enough during this weekend‘s Splatfest, either through leveling up my gear or rerolling.
