Anyone still play the first game? How is online doing?

I've always wanted to get to A+ rank but my left joystick is too crapshoot to play the game (or really, many U games) much. That's one of the drawbacks of the gamepad—you can't just throw out your controller and buy a new once once it breaks. Last time I played, last summer, it was pretty active.

[up] Wouldn't that cost a lot?

Maybe I'm in the minority, but a Splatfest like that seems too... not "niche", but the same idea. I couldn't even tell you whether the Patriots are a football or basketball team, nevermind make a decision for them. Something basic like "Basketball vs Baseball" or "Football vs soccer" would be more accessible.

If it was an American football league, it would have to be AFC vs NFC, and then [up][up] would have to go vote for the NFC, since the AFC has the Patroits.

I mean those things arenít mutually exclusive.

Also, wasnít there a Splatfest that was one sport versus another? I want to say it was baseball and soccer, but I canít remember.

But if you have one you can get the other, either by time-travelling to the future where they've invented teleporters, or by teleporting to a more advanced planet that's invented time travel.

Optimism through stalwart scepticism is a defect not everyone is lucky enough to be cursed with.

Time travel and teleportation don't seem remotely relatable. Maybe I'm missing something here.

I can't handle the idea of time travel. Imagine all the diseases you'd pick up. Teleporting seems safer.

It seems to me that with teleportation, the Required Secondary Powers (for example, anchoring to whatever planet youíre on so you donít zap yourself into orbit) are universally part of the package, unless the work is a deconstruction or a parody. Time travel, meanwhile, is much more open to interpretation (can you change the past at all? If you can, does the timeline split, averting paradoxes? Etc.) [up]So, yeah, not exactly a symmetric contest.

I need to think of a better signature.

The obvious RSP components of Time Travel technology include displacement/collision/intersection protection at destination (same as teleportation) and Temporal Paradox Protection, an essential thing to prevent runtime errors when attempting to time travel.

The three finest things in life are to splat your enemies, drive them from their turf, and hear their lamentations as their rank falls!

Splatfest has started, and I'm on Team Teleportation (because I had enough with traffic jams). And boy, is Team Teleportation not doing well (along with mirror matches).

On a side-note, I finally reached S-Rank for Rainmaker!

I didn't have as much time to play since I had a family event to go to in the late afternoon, but I got to King rank via pro mode. And I also capped off my night with a 10x match victory in Normal mode!

[up][up]That was basically how it was for me last Splatfest.

This time I managed to hit royalty after about two and a half hours of playing. Overall I only lost 4 or 5 matches. I'd have to check the app to see my exact stats.

EDIT: Checked and I went 19-5, which is by best splatfest win/loss ratio in a long time.

Holy fuck this splatfest was infuriating. I played a total of 41 games, and only won 14 of them. I spent three and a half hours playing, when normally it only takes about two hours to max out.

My final rank was 980/999 on Champion. If I had gotten into one more fucking game I would have maxed out. If I had won one of the games I lost, I would have maxed out. If I had managed a win streak to boost my score and make wins worth more, before a losing streak brought me back down and made wins worth less again, I would have maxed out.

If Nintendo's shitty fucking bullshit scoring system did literally anything to reward individual effort besides "here's 20 points for showing up", I would have maxed out.

I'd maxed out literally every Splatfest in Splatoon 2. Straight Kings for every Splatfest until this one. Because of shit teammates, shit timing, and Nintendo's shit system.

Jesus fucking christ.
