@Budda My highest so far is 147. I had a really good run early on but then it was followed by a long run of games where I got almost nothing but high tide with annoying weapons which went horribly but now starting to do a bit better again. Not too difficult for the most part but it would have been nice if some other the other easy special waves made the cut as Mothership is the only free wave now.

I was struggling in my first couple waves since I was talking to my friend but once I stopped and payed attention it wasn’t too hard. My record so far is 104 but hopefully I can play more later and get to 120 at least.

hello

BenAV

Just had a really good run that blew my old record out of the water. 168 is my high score now.

The most eggs I've gotten during big run is 94.

At Pro 3, the key to playing on my team is, letting the following salmonids to keep multiplying, and don't splat them: flyfish, stingers, slammin lids, and drizzlers, fish sticks. That way, I can't take out that flyfish within throwing distance, because there's there's too much chaos to let me replenish enough ink for a splatbomb and stay alive. And THAT'S how you play Salmon Run in Pro 2-3, north eastern US. XD

Problem solved.
😁

Disconnect during cohozuna, too. That was masterful. We were on track to possibly win.

@mr_somewhere The RNG team matching is how Nintendo likes it.(as annoying as that is) I dont think you're taking it too seriously. I mean, who doesn't like winning? The challenge is fun.

Some times-of-day, and possibly regions, are better for getting better teammats. I usually have better teams late at night. Big Run seems to have attracted more newbs. Or possibly, many new people got Splatoon 3 during the sales at the end of November. I noticed a lot of new small gray lockers (newbs) this week in the lobby lockerroom.

You can demote yourself to lower rank/difficulty. In salmon run lobby, if you press L to open the menu to start a salmon run job, the upper right of the screen says "Demote" press ZL (left trigger). However, If you're already reached Profreshional ranks, you cannot demote yourself lower than Pro Part-Timer.

As annoying as it can be to have losing streaks, there is rubber banding with match making, I think, and you'll eventually get some wins. I think I've had as many as 10-12 lowing matches in a row (worst case scenario). As disappointing team rng is, I'd still rather keep the game, because I don't like many games. This is still one of my favorite games.

@WoomyNNYes Yeah, I thought about it, will be giving it another go and just more carefully considering when I play as well as trying to get out there and find people that I can reliably play with, that'll hopefully revive my interest in the game. I feel I should focus less on how other people do and take solace in how I play, which I normally do. I don't know what it was that irked me. When I tried playing Turf War for a bit that was just some silly fun to blow off steam so I did, in the end, manage to squeeze some fun out of it.

Now... if only they ran these events just a little bit longer...

Been a while since I've really gone hard at a Salmon Run shift. Finally got the MAX Hazard Level Cleared badge.

I am 87 egg hell: no matter what I do, I just can't get past that hi-score. On the one hand, it's more frustrating than you could ever imagine when Big Run is as difficult as it is. On the other though....it does give me an opportunity to finally use this GIF.

My high score is 109, got a really lucky wave 3 which provided 52 eggs. Don't remember what happened, shame you can't rewatch Salmon Run shifts.

Glowflies seem to be an actual nightmare on WW, because of there being so little space to run and no high ground. Just got back-to-back first waves on it and in both cases got wiped out within 30 seconds.

Hope you're having a good day.

WoomyNNYes

Yeah, so. In case anyone hadn't discovered it yet, we cannot save Jobs from Big Run.

I agree, @Grumblevolcano, I would love to rewatch jobs to ananlyze what's going wrong, see if teammate's fault, or mine. It would help me learn, for sure.

@chapuH When it's on the edge of the map it's not so bad but in the middle it's a nightmare. The ledges on the sides are reasonably safe but they're outside of throwing distance from the basket which makes it hard to utilise them and still reach quota.

Very impressed with 168. The highest I got was 114, and even that felt miraculous after finally having a few good sessions with a competent team that balanced collecting with attacking.

I’ve been in a few teams were one of the players didn’t even put a single golden egg in the basket. It reminds me of the Clam Blitz players who don’t seemed to have clocked that the move has anything to do with clams. Bleh.

Anyway, hopefully 114 is sufficient for whatever magical reward they’ve got in stock for us tomorrow.

@Maxz Even though Big Run takes your rank into account, I feel like the average player is worse than during regular Salmon Run matches. I haven't reached 102 yet. I've seen the reward and I don't care enough to grind until I get a lucky team.

@Maxz High tide Mothership wave to start with really set us up for a big one.

I played a lot more after that and never got anywhere near again.

@BenAV
That's not fair. You get into lobbies with japanese players!
They generally play alot better in Salmon Run. Saw many japanese players got 200+ highscores.
I'm probably not going to be in the top 5% with a 133 hoghscore I guess. :')

Budda

BenAV

@Budda I play with Japanese players a lot due to being in a similar timezone. It's hard to know exactly what the thresholds are going to be but I'd guess that 133 will probably be in the top 5%. There would be a lot of inexperienced Salmon Run players jumping in for a bit just to check out Big Run so that should lower it a lot. The pro players that get really high scores would be a small minority.

@BenAV Um... both my waves were on the map edge. (says quite a bit about me as an SR player).
@Octane Where does 80 put you?

Hope you're having a good day.
