Ploot and DrFinkelstein Discuss The July 6th, 2017 Nintendo Direct about Splatoon 2
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.
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... 👎💩
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..."
One good thing about going to gaming events with Anand is I know I won't be the oldest person present.
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.
