@Fizza I've probably been playing a little too much...

@Fizza My playtime is so embarrassing, that I disabled sharing my gameplay history. I'm seriously embarrassed. I wish we could just disable the times. I like sharing my games list otherwise.

I was so eager for the rewards of the single player, and then the After Alterna (secret hard level) badge. After Alterna took me like six hours - it was so brutal for me. And then Salmon Run has been so great as game, and so great to grind for chunks & money.

Edit: Ok, @BenAV makes me feel less bad.ūü§£

@BenAV So, how many Cohozunas (king salmons) have you beat? I've still only beat one. I only play solo queue.

Do you think flyfish tenta missiles or small fry are OP, need to be nerfed? Or anything needs nerfing in salmon run?

I have four copies of Splatoon 3, four switches, and we are trying to get the answer to a question even Nintendo customer service can't seem to figure out....
When we try to set u a local wireless play game between our systems in the shoal we have 8 stages available to play in Turf Battle. However when we play salmon run we are only able to play Sockeye Station.

@WoomyNNYes I've defeated 14 so far. I think the hardest thing to deal with right now are the Big Shots. Whenever I see those things on the shoreline I know we're in for a rough wave.

@BenAV So, about how much of those 14 defeated Cohozuna were solo queuing vs playing with friends? Pardon my curiousity.

@WoomyNNYes Mostly solo. The friend that I usually play with dies a lot, haha. Fastest kill I've had was with 42 seconds to spare.

@sixrings Interesting. I don't know if anyone else in here has played local multiplayer salmon run. If it's always only Sockey Station, regardless of the SR schedule, I'm guessing it's as-designed, even thought that is surprising omission on Nintendo's part.

I would also maybe tell NL's news tip channel via the contact button. I don't know if this may be too-niche, but it's an interesting bit, that I haven't heard about. (I don't mean "too niche" as a put down. I'd love to play SR locally, that would be awesome! But, I bet a lot of people never get to play Splatoon via local wireless or via LAN connection.)

@WoomyNNYes for the record when you play local wireless play in splatoon 2 everything is unlocked even if you never have played online. So this is very frustrating.

Local wireless play is how our family survived the first year of lock down. So we have been waiting for splatoon 3 for a while.

@BenAV @Fizza With BenAV being at Eggsecutive rank, I imagine the pool of players is more competent? Or BenAV is that much of a badass at Salmon Run.

@BenAV Do you notice experience more competent teammates in Eggsecutive ranks? Or are you playing at late night/early morning when less newbs/kids are on?

@WoomyNNYes I'd say the players are generally better as you get higher so that does at least counter-balance the difficulty spike. I play at all sorts of times because my sleep patterns are weird but I'm in a similar timezone to Japan.

Yeah, I understand all that. I'm thinking Nintendo, for some reason, only had Sockeye Station ready at launch for local play. Maybe they have to cater the AI for each map for local play, and the other maps aren't ready yet. I don't know what those reasons could be. I'm assuming the other SR maps will become available for local play with a future update. We also know more modes are coming the Splatoon 3 & Salmon Run. Maybe that's playing a part somehow. - These are just my best guesses, or a feeling I have.

@sixrings I don't have anyone to test it with but I just went into The Shoal and opened up a Salmon Run room and it allows me to pick between any of the currently released stages.

@BenAV I wonder if its something I have to unlock in regular online play? perhaps I have to use that free 7 day pass and upgrade my character... will I have to upgrade all the characters though?

sixrings

BenAV

@sixrings No idea but it's worth trying with at least the host first. You should be able to choose the map settings before anyone else even enters the room. The regular modes should have 12 maps too.

@BenAV yeah my regular mode has 8. So perhaps that’s part of it. Frustrating for sure.

How many salmon run levels are there?

sixrings

BenAV

@sixrings Three so far.
