Oh. Your avatar is the default avatar for squidboards and someone one there put the shades on it too. But yeah, there is a forums for Splatoon. I go there sometimes.
Kills are better than covering ink, because you slow the other team down while covering ink.
Heh, what a coincidence.. :P What I meant about kills though, was that you don't want to go for them the whole time.. You're right about killing (Oh, sorry.. INKING.. Forgot this was an E10+ game.. ._.) the other team, I've just seen other people go for kills the entire match, which cost their team..

Myself included. ;~; I usually stay back and ink the uninked floor/walls in the beginning of the match, then I try to take out enemies and steal their turf.. ^^

Y'know... we really should try to get at least 8 of us together at one point, August update or not.

Btw, I found a site that shows when the map rotations are as well as the current maps: http://splatoon.ink/

Oh my gosh, that website is so helpful.. Thanks! :D I'd try to play too, but my Wii U and TV are not set up yet.. :F ..And what are they adding in August?

Basically, better matchmaking options:

"Party matchmaking will allow four players to party up online and find another team to battle. Meanwhile, custom games will support up to 8 players and allow them to choose any stage or ruleset they want."

So Mr. Iwata's funeral was held earlier today (July 17)... Gonna be an emotional Splatfest, that's for sure...

People disconnecting for daaaays.

I've had a few situations, but it's not entirely bad for me.

If you meant Splatfest, I've only had one d/c out of all my matches going for the last title (and it only happened on today's).

Just get in a lobby full of people in the C- to C+ range.

eZ rank boost
Blazevoir
That only happened when I was about to go back to C+. When I got back to around 30 points, B- and up started showing up again.
Bestelle
Pretty much anyone in the C+ - B+ range is easy for me, I'm just too lazy to give a shit about grinding and typically don't like to rely on team mates. Otherwise I wreck up shop nearly every match (12-18 kills ea).

B-
I use the weird red gun thing that explodes, the mid range one.

Blaze it

FINALLY got B thanks to Kelp Splat Charger on Tower Control. /totallydidn'tplayallday

Done with Ranked for now, at least until Rainmaker comes out.

The name of this gun makes me think it's just gonna finish the match before it even starts, and I don't even have this game

I bought the game a few days ago and I absolutely love it. Splatoon is the first console game in years I really enjoy playing. I'm currently level 14 but the leveling feels a bit slow. My favorite weapon is the Krak-On Splat Roller but I'm having difficulties with ranged weapons, I haven't figured out how to not get killed by the everytime. I'll start ranking as soon as I hit level 20 - looking forward to it!

Ranked Battles give you more than double the EXP and money compared to Regular Battles... if you win anyway (the losing team gets absolutely nothing if the winning team gets a K.O. result), so I guess I don't really blame you for waiting. Not to mention, some of the popular weapons don't get unlocked till the later levels.

Going back to Ranked, Rollers are okay for Splat Zones, but I'd advise not to use them for Tower Control since people tend to use weapons with crazy long range (not just limited to Chargers (snipers)).

Yeah I know about the double EXP, but as you said, the "better" weapons get unlocked at later levels. I'm not sure what I really want to "main" right now. I really like the rollers because I don't really like to go for kills or direct enemy contact in games, I'm more of a supporter if that makes sense. But at the same time I always look at my team members winning 1v1 with their guns and I think to myself: "Wow, how cool - I want to do that too." and then I switch to a gun (I tried the N-Zap '89 and another one but I only know the german name for that and I couldn't find the english one) and end up with only a few points after a won game. But thanks for the tips nonetheless, maybe I'll find a weapon that fits me later on!

EDIT: Mark your calendars for August 6's update.
