Splatoon's big update to version 2.0.0 means that we can now play custom games online with friends, allowing us to dictate map, game mode, and even the number of players. This means that the much-sought after possibility of 1v1 matches online in Nintendo's ink-em-up is finally a reality, and they're a massive improvement over the offline Battle Dojo.

Unfortunately because Splatoon is designed with teams in mind games can become one-sided or dull very rapidly, and so house rules have to be put in place in order to make the experience a fun and challenging one.

Check out the video below where we take you through the ins, outs, ups and downs of getting the most out of these unique matches.
