So Mr. Iwata's funeral was held earlier today (July 17)... Gonna be an emotional Splatfest, that's for sure...
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.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!
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)).
I wonder when there is a safe time to play without running into the japanese lag players. Game is starting to become a chore more than anything else now. Welpthe only time you can play without japanese people is when japanese people have their splatfest.
