Ahhhh, "seed checker". haha. Yeah, that's it. Thank you @ChaoticKirby. Welcome the the site, by the way!

EDIT: Oh, wait. (just looked at the site) That's for predicting ability chunk loadouts. Fooey. I forgot that's what it was. I mistakenly thought it predicted shellout machine capsule colors. Anyway, I think that's what I was thinking about, I just had it wrong. Thanks!

@WoomyNNYes It does have shell-out machine payouts too.

how does everybody feel about the new patch? i've seen pro players say that it hasn't changed enough, but i think that the massive buffs to triple inkstrike will make hp specials a lot more vulnerable

@ChaoticKirby It’s likely the next Big Run is in March or April depending on whether the next Splatfest is late February or early March.

Something I would like to see, and maybe it's a terrible idea: What if a Splatfest Tshirt quadrupled abilities on all gear? XD You could throw splatbombs crazy far, or swim, run crazy fast. Granted, maybe some abilities would be omitted, like Ink Saver Main. Although, the downside to this super power mode, everything would probably feel disappointingly slow when splatfest ends & everything goes back to normal.

@novasoup I'm still not getting splats with ink strike special - surprisingly. Granted, I kept encountering highly skilled teams of friends - that's what they seemed like, anyway. And, I'm kind of disappointed Ninja Squid shows splash now for that first bit, but I guess it's tolerable.

I would like to see Sub Power Up get buffed for splatbomb throwing distance, as a counter an Elite 4K charger. In hagglefish market, I encountered an elite 4k player totally

@WoomyNNYes i was testing the new tentatek splattershot, and when i used inkstrike it would reliably get a splat even if i barely grazed the player or mist, imo its a really big buff

@WoomyNNYes Is it bad that i just turned that quadruple ability idea into a comic?

(the comic. e)

I may be (most likely) very tired but still posted. Yay. Sorry about the horrible pfp quality, console was docked and connected to a mid-quality projector :p (she/they)

@novasoup Haven’t really gotten a chance to try out the update, but I did see a comparison video. I’m kind of glad that the ink strike is back to the power it had back in Splatoon 1. Ninja squid got nerfed, but I don’t really think it will actually hurt as much as some of the community says. Best part is that my main, the Aerospray, got a slight buff lmao.

@Grumblevolcano I agree, and I also think that it would make more sense for the next big run to be announced for the beginning of the next season.

@WoomyNNYes That concept fits with the chaotic theme of Splatoon 3. Now imagine a full team of stacked run speed up Aerosprays.

I casually reference dead memes. A lot.

I would also suggest looking behind you.

WoomyNNYes

Oh, wow. There's a trick where you can take out a flyfish with one splatbomb?!? (edit, oh crap. they're shorts, so they don't embed.) They are youtuber CheWoomy taking out flyfish with one splatbomb - two methods.

I came real close to trying the splatbomb on the edge trick to take out a flyfish, but there was too much chaos with tenta missiles and drizzlers, I died before I could try.

@WoomyNNYes
Yep. I do it if I have the chance.
Are there always the same people playing Salmon Run? I get into a lobby with CheWoomy a lot. Haha.

@Budda Ahhh, yeah, CheWoomy is German. Your region has been exposed!!😁 I'm in eastern US. I used to see Captain Astronaut online, but I haven't seen him in Splatoon 3.

In my region, I struggle to get & keep Executive VP. This may be a reflection of my skill level. But I also suspect my region may have a downside (or perhaps my problems also stem from playing in the 5pm-9pm, when most newbs play). I can get to Executive VP, but every time I come back the next day, I get spammed with newbs and struggle to get past wave 1 or 2. It's such a problem, that I usually end up getting pay cuts down to Pro 2 or Pro 1. I often get so frustrated by the seemingly endless jackass-matching (8-10+ failed shifts) that I have to demote myself to Pro 1 just to complete three waves so I can make progress with the SR reward capsules.

I constantly have teams where everyone seems to avoid taking out drizzers, slammin lids, stingers, flyfish (or they don't know how), or nobody is keeping ink on the ground or walls, or teamates aren't using their specials, or too many teammates kill bosses at the edge of the map making it too hard to make quotas. If I don't have a long range weapon, or strong weapon, chances are good we'll be overrun by boss salmonids, a rain of drizzlers & tenta missiles. In pro 2 yesterday, I was the only one painting walls at the beginning for 8-10 shifts. It was amazing. Understandably, this is january, post christmas, when there are a lot of new players.

And quite often, if I find a decent team, I lose them quickly, because every two hours maps change, and I lose my team when lobbies reset.

Mind you, I know SR lobbies are better after 10pm here, but that's not a good time for me to play.

Forgive my venting.🤣

I thought so he'd be German. That "Che" in his name is a joke probably. Some Germans pronounce the word "the" horribly wrong this way. Pronounced just like 'The' with an S or C sound at the beginning. 😅

I get into good lobbies early in the morning(with a fresh shift). And when I'm out of range of lower VP, I get good players generally any time. I only get problems, when I start at low VP in the afternoon.

Can anyone tell me how, or why, I start getting tracked after I respawn? At the 0:23 time stamp, you'll hear the ping sound and then two tracking lines connect to me. When, I look at the other team's battle stats, I can't figure out what or whom is tracking me. I don't see any weapons or abilities that can track. I'm totally baffled. Does anyone know what's going on?

It's early in the game, and nobody has breached our end of the map to put something there.

The opposing team is the top team in this pic.

@WoomyNNYes Those lines are tracking the enemy players, not you Someone else on your team must have tagged them with a tracker. It looks kinda strange since you’re far away from them, though.

@StarPoint Oh. Good point. Looking at my team's stats, a teammate has a charger (squiffer?) with a point sensor. Maybe that's the source.

So, does anyone in the US region manage to keep Eggsecutive VP for multiple days by freelancing? I can't get out of pro 2 and 3 anymore.

Also, where did alex olney get that salmon run grizzco light, just behind him on the wall??

Maybe team up with someone more experienced. You can do freelance with friends you know.

@Budda I've never been able to play Salmon Run with switch friends. The few times I've managed to recruit a switch friend, the game never filled the two empty slots with other players. Does it actually work if you don't recruit a full three friends?
