The game is currently coded to use peer-to-peer connections. It seems unlikely to me that they'll be able to patch the game to use proper servers.

Looks like we're getting two new stages and the Bubble Blower special. The first stage is the new ship one seen in the Direct now called Manta Maria and will be released August 26. The second stage is a new Salmon Run map called Lost Outpost which will be available today after an update. Finally the first weapon with the Bubble Blower special will be released September 2.

Manta Maria looks a bit longer and narrower than most of the existing Splatoon 2 maps. I'm excited for that -- I feel like the current maps feel a little bit homogenous in how short and square they are, and I've been hoping for a bit more of the variety Splatoon 1 got.

MARINA NO YOUR MOTHER WATCHES YOUR TALK SHOW EVERY DAY

I had fun with Manta Maria today, but it seems hilariously broken as a Rainmaker stage. Just... a straight shot to the other player's base, which you can plainly see from your own. (Don't super jump back if the other team successfully took the Rainmaker.)

I've been fielding the Squelchers lately and am having a weird time with their firing arc, compared to the Splat Duelies. Sticking with 'em for the range bonus though.

Edit: aim lower with' em... aim lower... just gotta stick to it.

I'm looking to the sky to save me
Looking for a sign of life
Looking for something help me burn out bright
I'm looking for a complication
Looking 'cause I'm tired of trying
Make my way back home
When I learn to fly (high)


VS

If I was invisible
And I could just watch you in your room
If I was invincible
I'd make you mine tonight
If hearts were unbreakable
And I could just tell you where I stand
I would be the smartest man
If I was invisible
Wait, I already am


This Splatfest season, whoever loses, the Inkopolis tabloids will win.

You're telling me. I had an embarrassingly long string where I was doing nothing but losing. Still got the Invisibility Queen rank for my lil' squiddo

I hated Shifty Station. Had a few matches where my team were pinned into our starting corner and we couldn't get out of our corner. Winning team won 70% to our measly 20%.

Someone on your team must have dropped out. That score happens every time someone does!

Yeah, I pretty much only spent my time feeding Team Flight.

Then this morning I discovered that my left Joycon won't boot up at all. I'm going to say that's why I sucked so bad.

I dropped out of fewer matches, but my win ratio completely inverted itself with all those losses. Ah well.

I think we've finally reached the point of détente with all of the Inkopolis Square memes.

Yes, I loved Kelp Dome in the first game and was hoping it would return.

Kelp Dome... is fun!

They're also doing something quite interesting with Salmon Run this time around. They give you a loadout that's a complete mystery going in, but that can randomly have a Grizzco-brand Super Weapon. I got the Grizzco Blaster, which has the firing rate of a charged gatling gun (that was a pretty easy wave.)

I had one where two people on the team got it. That was great. I've definitely gotten more wins this round of salmon run before than any other time. Went up two pay grades!

Congratulations!

I had a pretty good day in Splat Zones, myself. Stealth Jump isn't the game changer I thought it would be, but Ninja Squid is incredible.
