Ice cream cake is a type of cake. You know what you have to do.

Clearly the choice is obvious.

I love ice cream but I can't eat it anymore, so I guess I'm stuck with cake.

I never played Splatoon 1 so I hope that the Splatfest/test fire will be stable and have good enough matchmaking for me to noob it up on Saturday.

The Splatfest this weekend should be interesting since everyone will be starting from a blank slate, regarding gear and weapons.

I wonder if people will be able to progressively get better stuff the more they play, or will everyone be locked into the same options this weekend?

So the Splatfest doesn't start until 6pm EST, right? Shame it's not an all-day thing, but it's pre-launch so whatevs.

Or maybe going forward Splatfests won't be all-day affairs anymore?

So wait, are we going to be able to team up with people on our Friends list if we chose the same side? If so, I suggest that we use the Talking Time discord so we can talk.

This is basically a glorified Testfire, which means they want everybody involved to be playing at the same time. There's no indication that the real thing won't have 'em all day.

Downloaded the app, there's a tutorial (damned motion controls) then you can make your character and a post and stuff. None of the shopkeepers think you're cool enough to talk to though.

I'll probably be on in an hour or so. It's going for a few hours, right?

Oh, I should also mention that I'm currently in the Talking Time Discord voice channel if anyone is interested in doing voice chat.

Yeah, I was just reading up on how this works and apparently we need a full team of 4 in order to proceed with Splatfest. So the room will shut down until we have 4 people.

I'm pretty sure that's used for matchmaking and is determined by your wins and losses.

A big storm just blew out my wifi in the middle of a match. There was also this strange whistling sound outside so I'm heading into the bathroom.

I quit early because I prefer shorter stints and I made it to the Champion tier. It's amazing what a difference it makes to be on a team with two or three other experienced players. My skills haven't deteriorated as far as I thought, either; I just need to remember to stay loose, pay attention, and know when to fall back.

I did significantly better when I remembered that I don't know how to shoot and switched to the roller. My kingdom for a brush.

Thoughts:

- You can switch weapons in-between rounds FINALLY.
- The roller can still do the horizontal splash, just not in the air.
- The results screen doesn't show everyone's point total, unless I missed it? I want to know how well I contributed!
- I dearly miss a dedicated map screen. Makes it hard to strategize on the fly.
- The new jump button is throwing me way off, though I get why they did it.

Well that was weird, storm's blowing over but my wifi is dead. Hopefully I'll be able to play the last hour.
