I don't think it's a regional thing. Salmon Run ends in 3 hours in North America as well.

@canonj
Ah, ok! That's good! I wasn't sure since neither Carlos nor Zero seemed to have noticed it going on.

@DrFinkelstein

Looks like I should make a Discord account and/or download that app for the Online Lounge. I'm only level 3 right now and rocking my newbie gear, but I'm already having a blast.

@Octorockin

Yeah, make a Discord account man! I'm joining you now, but I think you know this.

I'll PM you the invite link.

Ooo, which bar?

AND DO YOU HAVE TO DRINK STUPID BEER?
Posted: 07/26/17, 04:06:47
I love the eerie music that plays when you're near Grizzco. It's like you're approaching some scary amusement park ride or something.

@DrFinkelstein

Thanks for the link. Have you tried using the mobile app yet? Do Discord and the app serve the same function more or less?

Good games earlier. Your character looks pretty awesome with the gear you have equipped!

@Octorockin

The app has more functionality but yet Discord may be currently easier to chat through. I don't quite know how to use the app for chatů we could try it sometime. It's only voice on the app. Discord is text.

Thanks for the compliment on my outfit, lol. I think I've changed it now that I'm trying to level up new gear but I'll go back and see what that outfit was. Maybe it's worth saving to an amiibo, hah. Good games indeed. Loved when we were both the top of our teams when we were not sharing a team but even better was when we were on the same team.

Ugh i missed Salmon Run? Why must it be on a schedule like this... i don't get home from work 'til about 10:00 (pm). so laaaame.

@DrFinkelstein @Octorockin

App seems... ok-ish, for voice chat at least. My bro has been using it alot, i guess he just plugs headphones in and uses his phones mic for voice chat. Though not being able to see which friends are online from the app / having to keep your phone screen on is... 👎💩

@Anand Emporium, obviously. They're not going to FORCE you to drink beer.

Tempted to ditch my thing tomorrow (meeting up with people I went to grad school with) and go to this instead!

Just got the app. Not too bad! Good to see ahead of time what the maps will be!

@carlosrox
Farther ahead than what you can see in-game?

@Zero
Is that obvious? I feel like there are a bunch of barcades now...

I would have gone if I were in Chicago today, probably. Maybe. Battery life will definitely be an issue!
Posted: 07/26/17, 23:04:58
That's true there are a bunch of barcades now. I feel like Emporium has the most actual events though.

@r_hjort
Yup, I think it's basically for the entire day.
Posted: 07/26/17, 23:15:16
@Zero
Perhaps they do!

There used to be a 3DS Facebook Flash Mob-ish group, too. I wonder if there's an equivalent thing for the Switch.
Posted: 07/26/17, 23:36:26
Well the thing I was supposed to go to tonight was cancelled.

DO I GO TO A SPLATOON 2 MEET-UP NOW? HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.

To be honest the part of me that used to hear about this stuff and think "I wish I lived in the city!" is now like "yeah I live in the city but I'm tired and it's going to be loud and driving / finding parking will suck and it will probably a bunch of kids (aka people in their 20s) and I'd be the oldest person there and..."

Still, tempting.

One good thing about going to gaming events with Anand is I know I won't be the oldest person present.

Seniority feels good, man.

Brandon robs me of that!

Good games, Canonj and Kenny!

I was frantically running away from Kenny during one match. I managed to lose him, but I ran into him later and got splatted.

I'm really enjoying the Splat Dualies right now. The dash, while I haven't made great use of it yet, is a welcome mechanic. It just feels good.

@carlosrox
Could be handy, I guess. Only makes me dislike the app concept even more, though. Locking more bullshit behind it like that.

But hey, today's salmon run, right? Happy days!

I think we're gonna need to try to organize a team for Salmon Run though it's frustrating because you practically need to be the same exact level and experience for it to work well and have everyone gain experience. I just lost like 6 games in a row thanks to players who are idling, not helping out team members or are just plain awful. It also made me lose a job rank and 60 exp into the previous rank which really stings a lot having to climb that back up again.

But really, the experience limitations from playing with players of a different rank makes no sense. I don't understand the logic behind that. Hopefully they cut back down on that later on. Maybe those who are higher ranked could have less limitations than those who are just starting out? Friends are gonna want to play together but there's practically no incentive to do so with all you can lose and never gain anything.
