@ACNHislit Oh, you're right. It's free to play. I downloaded it.

Looking for some more team mates. We mainly play salmon run and a little bit of turf war but we would probably go for a few league battles if we had a team to do it with. We're not professional standard by any means just trying to have a laugh and use the voice chat. If you're UK/Europe based (must be English speaking as we like to use the voice chat) and don't take things too seriously please add me through my code in the signature. We play most evenings particularly on the weekend.

Played a bunch of matches today. Got about 800 or so points to hit max rank during the Splatfest. Should be able to do it tomorrow.

Don't you guys think Splatoon would benefit from a free to play treatment?
Maybe free to plays are out of the question in nintendo policies.

@teo_o I love Splatoon and hate basically anything with a free-to-play model so I hope not.

Free to play is best used to encourage active users for online games, Splatoon has its user base so there’s no need to compromise it with free to play micro transactions.

Well i really DON'T like anything about Fortnite, don't get me wrong, but i've been playing Rocket League for years and Epic has decided to make it free to play, mainly to help epic store and their own pockets i'm sure, but the game itself is structured so that there's no pay to win whatsoever. of course i'm tempted to hate Epic for being the evil ruler (and i don't think there's anything to admire or to hope for from the recent lawsuit with apple). I could see the problem with kids spending money for cosmetics on a Nintendo IP, although you basically already have that with mii costumes in smash.
I don't know i think it would be a nice complement to the switch as a console to have a good free to play by Nintendo, and i also think Splatoon has a terrific gameplay and doesn't receive the praise/install base it deserves.

@teo_o I’m not sure why you think Splatoon doesn’t have a base or get praise. It’s sold over 10m copies, it’s online is constantly active and is highly regarded.

@Shamrock Splatoon 2 is still great. I don't see any reason to wait. Nobody knows when there will be a next one. Last summer NIntendo said they wern't even working on the next one yet, and had no further comment. It's possible Splatoon may be one game per console, like the Mario Kart series.

@Shamrock The single player campaign also works as a turtorial. So, if you get crushed in online turf war, sticking with the single player campaign will do a good job of helping you get better. After you reach level 4 or 10 (experience points), I think turf war matches will start matching you with tougher people. Not a bad thing, but you may notice it. There is rubber banding with matching online teams, though, so you can't lose forever

While Octo Expansion is great, it's designed to be a challenge for people who've completed the single player campaign. If you're new to Splatoon, you may want to wait till after you've beat the Splatoon 2 single player campaign. (buying octo will also allow you to play as an octoling, which may or may not interest you later on. It's just a skin - no special abilities)

Salmon Run - Key here is knowing which enemies you should prioritize killing first, and how to kill them, and work as a team. Like if you have a good long range weapon,(sniper gun) you can take out the bigger bosses. Salmon Run Tips videos helped me. You don't have to play this mode, but when I was ready for something new, this renewed my love for the game, and I spent a lot of time in Salmon Run.

Regarding more tips, I looked up Salmon Run tips on youtube. And ThatSrb2Dude on youtube has decent weapon tutorials for main weapons, sub and special weapons (each weapon has a sub & special weapon(like bombs, etc)). Changing weapons is part of the fun of the game. If you get tired of a weapon, playing/learning new weapons adds new layers to the game.

When is it worth it to pay for the dlc @WoomyNNYes if you have it

@Shamrock Yeah, I got it. It's awesome. But, if you never played Splatoon 1, and Splatoon 2 is your first Splatoon experience, I don't think you want the Octo Expansion dlc yet ($19.99 USD). Octo Expansion's difficulty is higher, because it's meant to be played after you beat the Splatoon 2 single player campaign. Just make sure you like Splatoon 2 before you buy the Octo dlc.

Octo expansion dlc came out a year after Splatoon 2 launched, and it's basically a second single player game. Getting it early doesn't give you any advantage. If you really just want to buy it, because you can, you can. There are a few pieces of gear exclusive to Octo,* but you have to beat Octo expansion to get them.*

@Shamrock @Tendo64 @Snatcher Just a heads up, if you get Splatoon 2, when you load the game there will always be an unskippable news intro that you have to advance through with some button presses. Nintendo added this to the game to discourage people disconnecting from online matches(which hurts your team), by making it take 3-4+ minutes to reload the game and re-enter online matches. So, the News may seem annoying, but it does effectively serve it's purpose. Otherwise, people could disconnect painlessly and instantly reload the game all the time. (it loads very fast otherwise).

Also, if you disconnect from matches two or more times within the same day, you will get a temporary 5 minute? ban from online matches. I can't remember if the ban time increases with repeat offenses. It might? But nobody, to my knowledge has ever gotten permanently banned.

I'm probably going to buy the game today. Is jumping straight into online recommended or is there a certain amount of time I should spend in the campaign first?

FWIW I've never played Splatoon at all.

@Tendo64 I think you can go right into Turf War at the start of the game. Salmon Run becomes available at xp level 10 or 15?(I forget which level) Single player will teach you game mechanics and how to use the weapons. There's also a training room available when you're shopping weapons, or looking at your weapon inventory, you can hit Y to "test" the weapon, and it puts you in a training room where you can practice & fool around. I still go in the training room to mess around to figure out what weapon I want to use next.

Motion control aiming is highly recommended. Give it a few hours to adjust to it. It totally worth it. When I first got the game, I thought it motion felt weird, but you'll get used to it (like everyone says), and you'll never want to go back to aiming with your analog sticks because it's motion aiming is so quick & accurate while playing the game.

@Tendo64 It's a good idea to play through a bit of the single player first just to get a feel for the game and mechanics. The whole thing is a bit like a tutorial. It's not a big deal if you do just want to jump into some turf war though as the game will try to pair you up with other low level players if it can.

Cheers guys.

I got the game this morning and have been playing it for a few hours. I'm only level 4 and still not overly good at the game, and I've played a mix of the single player campaign and a fair bit of online turf wars. I'm finding myself alternating between motion controls and analogue sticks, just can't seem to find which one is better for me. It's a bit frustrating in battles as a newbie, but have unlocked and bought a few weapons and I'm sure I'll get better at it.

@Tendo64 Playing without motion controls puts you at a huge disadvantage against those who are using it. You should play however is the most fun for you at the end of the day but I highly recommend giving the motion controls at least a really good go as it's the better option of the two competitively and they feel extremely intuitive and satisfying to use once you've got the hang of it.

Yeah that's a fair call. I've just gotta stick with it and get the hang of it.
