bad news son
Hows comeback with special saver?
tfw i thought Zekko was Quick Super jump
Cute squidboys showing up to your ranked games to plant Beakons and force area evacuation using their special transformation.
>mfw there is still airshits making excuses on why they lost
Good skills to run with TTK with Special saver, Bomb toss, and haunt?
Dude. Stop falseflagging us planes. We know we lost. We're not trying to pull this stupid math shit to make excuses. Even if you believe what you're saying is true, it just doesn't make sense when you look at all the other Splatfests where the popular side also won on wins.
If you're referring to those ass-pulled numbers based on false assumptions at the end of the last thread, that's the kind of bullshit someone that never took a college statistics class would try to claim.
Basic statistics proves that neither side had any advantage or disadvantage in the battle portion.
If you try to claim anything else, you're fucking retarded and in denial.
The funniest part of all of this is how he's refusing to accept that the team was a given a very real point modifier for having more players, so even if having more players would theoretically hurt your team, the game already clearly and definitively accounts for it, yet Planes still lost.
>Even if you believe what you're saying is true, it just doesn't make sense when you look at all the other Splatfests where the popular side also won on wins.
The pre-2.0.0 splatfests are different because of the change in victory weight from x2 to x4. Before 2.0.0, planes would have won with such a huge popularity gap.
Explain how any of those scenarios are "made up" or irrelevant. No, wait, you can't.
Using only relevant variables is not cherrypicking.
What if in Splatoon 2, instead of popularity and win percents, Splatfests are determined by the amount of players on each team who achieve the higher ranks? Say it's 1 point for base rank joining a team, 2 for the next, 3 for the next, 5 for King/Queen. At the end of the Splatfest, it adds up the scores of everyone's rank on all the teams, and that's the scores it pits against each other for who wins the Splatfest. Would this be more fair? Would there be more or less bitching and excuses?
You're asserting that without any argument, so I'm just going to dismiss it and if you try to rebut you're retarded and in denial.
It's not based on bias, it's based on whether a variable actually has reason to have been different on a given team. If there's no reason for it to affect one team over another, why should it be considered?
Ignoring the fact that the victory modifier was changed from x2 to x4, are we? Interesting.
> repeatedly gets wrecked
> he is still in denial
Anon there has been splatfests in which the popular team destroys the other team.
>These could have been the Squid Sisters
thank god they went with such perfect designs
>still trying to trashtalk when planeposters have almost all acknowledged that they weren't surprised or predicted cars would win
That's because popularity was literally the only deciding factor before with very few exceptions. They had to make wins account for more, as they should, so it wouldn't just literally be a popularity contest.
Have you ever made a game?
what's up with these team plane members being autistically salty?
Those were pre-2.0.0 splatfests.
The way it goes is this. If there's a small difference in popularity, it doesn't matter because the weight given to the popularity is 4x smaller than the weight given to the victory percentage. If there's an overwhelmingly large popularity, like 65:35, the difference doesn't matter in the opposite direction because the weight of the popularity is enough to matter. If there's a large but not overly large difference, then the number of mirror matches harms the more popular team and the points gained by popularity don't help it.
Look, I'm not saying Planes would have definitely won if they were less popular. I'm just saying cars DID have a demonstrable advantage.
If you expect me to take time out of my day to teach you principles of statistics that you could look up yourself, then you're exactly as retarded as this whole thread thinks you are. It's not a difficult concept; your ignorance is willful.
Depends on the map. On Triggerfish I always take the path around and build up wail by the top the rainmaker is about to burst or has burst and it blocks that path if they have the maker or I end up with multikills and bursting the shield for my team to take
>I'm just saying cars DID have a demonstrable advantage.
Even if that was true, which we've already proven you're cherry-picking your math all over the place, the game literally awards your team extra popularity score for having to "suffer this burden". That means you were either at a fair advantage or had the advantage entirely. Stop trying to outargue people and play the game. Next Splatfest you don't want to be right back here making phony bologna math again.
Stop making the matches so close, you guys.
Gratz on B- btw
>See enemy go into a pool of ink large enough that he could easily dodge me, and he's close enough to jump out and kill me

Shame they don't put this gear on them during splatfest.
Yeah, I dunno what his damage is or why people keep responding.
The worst part is guilty by association. I was team plane but not I have to deal with this faggot complaining about a loss. Who literally gives a shit it is 6 snails you fucker
Shut the fuck up. This happens every Splatfest. Why do you care so fucking much
Just go kill yourself if you are this upset
It's not and I won't.
I'm so glad you brought those up.
>Boke vs. Tsukkomi:
Tsukkomi had 57% popularity, meaning that there were presumably fewer mirror matches than there were for Planes, which had 66% popularity. Also, Japan's playerbase is huge compared to the west, so the game struggles less to find opposing teammates even if there is a large popularity difference.
>Ant vs grasshopper
Again, the difference wasn't as stark as Planes vs. Cars and yes, Japan's playerbase matters.
>Messy vs. Tidy
Same story, though I'm not sure of Europe's relative playerbase size compared to the West.
And you can't offer obviously flawed math that is clearly bogus to everyone but you and insist that you're the only one in the right. Look into it if you don't believe me. But we both know you won't.
Stay in school and you might learn a thing or two.
>which we've already proven you're cherry-picking your math all over the place
Nice try. If anything, we've proven that I'm only including relevant data, since you've utterly failed to demonstrate why any other variables would matter.
>the game literally awards your team extra popularity score for having to "suffer this burden".
But it's at such a weaker weight than the victories now (x4 vs. the old x2) that having so many skilled players waste matches in mirror while having unskilled players waste proportionately fewer matches makes the popularity weight not enough to overcome the x4 victory weight.
Already explained why this doesn't matter here: >>118736774
Car shitters had better odds with fewer skilled plane player matches, which was an effect of the planes vs. planes mirror matches.
But it is how it works. With such a huge playerbase, there are more raw numbers of incoming players at any given time, meaning more chances for new matchups and less chance of the game being unable to find different teams.
I explained why that evidence doesn't matter. Sorry you can't understand that.
>that dolphin braid
>Reminded that real life squids can regenerate severed limbs
>Suddenly have the dark thought of a Squid Sister's Splatfest penalty would be to have the losing Sister's limbs cut off and she'll be an amputee until her limbs grow back in about a week

>And even more darker thought of the losing Sister having to eat her own sashimi-prepared limbs
tfw this probably wouldn't even bother Marie
Fuck, getting drunk makes you think these weird things
The only thing you've proven is that you genuinely believe your own flawed and biased math.
What we've proven is that no one else does.
You're done getting replies from me, holy fuck. Stay salty.
What's your loadout? I could probably suggest something?
Why those three abilities? Do you have clothes with- oh.
You're dressed as an Octoling, aren't you? Scope, Tee, and Boots with Octoshot? No brand influence?
Ink Recovery, Run Speed, Swim Speed, and Special Charge Up are what I'd recommend. Special Duration and Quick Respawn are good too, if you get those.
No one has been able to explain how the math is flawed or biased. All they've done is bring in irrelevant variables like "including the players who kept playing after they reached King/Queen," which should be equal for both sides, and crying "IT'S STATISTICS" as if that explains anything. Why wouldn't I believe it?

Those are cute
Here's a little math problem for math anon.
Sorry, you can't skew your way out of the results of this one.
Ok. Then give to me right now the statistics of the skill levels of all of the people who played in the the splatfest. Cause what you have is a theory with no actual piece of data to back it up.
>Rainmaker on walleye warehouse
>Wipe out the opposing team
>bubbler is ready

>hold them off, enough for the shmuck who has the rainmaker to walk up the ramps and take the rainmaker to the goal.
>no one ever came
>look down on map
>idiot with the rainmaker decided to take the other route, a teamate following him
>other teamate is inking our base
I just don't know.
>Then give to me right now the statistics of the skill levels of all of the people who played in the the splatfest.
Do you have any reason as to why they would be different? If not, it's irrelevant.
>Cause what you have is a theory with no actual piece of data to back it up.
The data is the sheer number of mirror matches. High mirror matches = fewer matches that matter with skilled players.
That is the evidence. There were many, many mirror matches. I've explained how mirror matches will reduce skilled player genuine matches more than unskilled player genuine matches. Points are proportionate to time. Unless you can explain why that is wrong, you have nothing.
>fucked inside out by a team of rollers.
They didn't get to dunk though so that's the positive.
> It's mirror matches
Fine then give me the actual percentage of mirror matches that occured throughout the day. Then give me the percentage of the shitters in the mirror matches as well as the good players in the mirror matches. While you're at it give me the percentage of good car teams that faced both good and bad plane teams. Also give me the percentage of bad car teams that faced bad and good plane teams. Once you're done give me your sources on where you got that info.
>Fine then give me the actual percentage of mirror matches that occured throughout the day.
As long as they weren't a rare anomaly, which many anons will tell you they weren't, the specific percentages don't matter. What matters is that they WERE common enough to be noticed by many anons here, which means they had an effect as I have described.
>Then give me the percentage of the shitters in the mirror matches as well as the good players in the mirror matches. While you're at it give me the percentage of good car teams that faced both good and bad plane teams. Also give me the percentage of bad car teams that faced bad and good plane teams.
Irrelevant unless you are claiming that the matchmaking is unfair for any reason.
>Once you're done give me your sources on where you got that info.
See, you're trying to look for some sort of factor that will reverse the effect that I've described, but there isn't any. Again, I'm not saying planes would have won without the mirror match effect. Maybe even if skilled players got to play against cars in more of their matches they might have lost. But the deck was likely stacked against them already. That's all.
This helped calm down after the previous run quite a bit. Too many dcs though today.
Also, is anyone else having trouble posting again?
>all of that jumping. I've made it to S rank so far without that but should I get in the habit of it? I admit I do have trouble aiming at people when they're jumping circles around me.
I can feel the salt at the end there.

>As long as they weren't a rare anomaly, which many anons will tell you they weren't, the specific percentages don't matter. What matters is that they WERE common enough to be noticed by many anons here, which means they had an effect as I have described.
Irrelevant if there is no actual data to back your claim.
>Irrelevant unless you are claiming that the matchmaking is unfair for any reason.
You were the one making the claim the whole time.
>See, you're trying to look for some sort of factor that will reverse the effect that I've described, but there isn't any. Again, I'm not saying planes would have won without the mirror match effect.

Irrevelant. You are making a hypothetical scenario with no ways of proving it to be plausible. You are explaining a hypothetical scenario with hypothetical answers.
You have been told plenty of scenarios that will throw your theory out the window. You have been told many arguments that shatters your theory. Yet all you do is scream out "IRRELEVANT" merely because it doesnt fit with your theory.
You have been told to present data to back up your theory yet all you do is try to weasle out of the way.
I feel sorry for you cause you have your head shoved up your ass that you begin to think your own shit as reality.
>I admit I do have trouble aiming at people when they're jumping circles around me.
You just answered your own question. Being a jumping jap is the best middle finger you can give to chargers that failed to hit you.
>Select all images below that match the one on the right.
>no image on the right
Fuck your shit captcha.
Scopes either shouldn't have a range bonus, or should have a much longer charge time compared to their unscoped version.

>Irrelevant if there is no actual data to back your claim.
Do you really want me to comb the backlog of posts filled with planes talking about how they faced other planes?
>You were the one making the claim the whole time.
Nope. I never said the matchmaking was anything other than random. Now you're backpedaling and trying to assert that the matchmaking WAS stacked in favor of planes.
>You have been told plenty of scenarios that will throw your theory out the window. You have been told many arguments that shatters your theory. Yet all you do is scream out "IRRELEVANT" merely because it doesnt fit with your theory.
How can an argument "shatter" it if it's irrelevant? It's not irrelevant because it doesn't fit, it's irrelevant because it's irrelevant. If you could demonstrate why there would be any differences in team composition across a variety of variables, I would reconsider, but you can't even provide a reason for that.
>You have been told to present data to back up your theory yet all you do is try to weasle out of the way.
The datum is that there was a significant frequency of mirror matches.
>I feel sorry for you cause you have your head shoved up your ass that you begin to think your own shit as reality.
You don't even understand what relevant variables are and you're claiming I'm full of shit.
that one always fucks with my brain. i think you're supposed to select all the mirrored images, but most of the time i can't fuckin figure out if any of them match, so i just refresh the damn captcha.

do Mariefags main chargers and Calliefags main rollers?
They stopped responding cause you dismiss all counter arguments that destroys your shit cause you don't want to admit your wrong.
Have you seen the way that guy uses spoilers?
Two shitsposters , one from /mk8g/ and one from /ssbg/ have come to ruin this general.
What they didn't expect is each other to come here. Now they fight for dominance, either way we lose.
After Splatoon stopped being the /v/ flavor of the month, /ink/ went through a mass exodus where all that was left was epic memers, pedophiles, and about 2 or 3 people that still actually play the game.
I used to have a lot of trouble with dynamos. They're really powerful but here's a tip to help you splat them more consistently: you have consciously exclude the roller itself from your aim. Shooting the roller does nothing. Your eye unconsciously moves towards it, since it's a huge target and a threat and your aim will suffer as well. So focus on aiming only at the inkling and more importantly NOT the roller. You'll start splatting rollers of all kinds a lot better.
Bob here. Fuck sorry guys but it seems like I'll only be able to play for a few games cause some unexpected thing came up here. Just giving you guys a heads up if I suddenly leave after a game.

shit man feels like I'm watching a nature documentary.
shitposting has been around way before he left. i think it actually got worse while he was away and people were making a meme of him. he doesn't strike me as a shitposter but in the end we are all shitposters in here.
as a planesfag, you need fucking pic related. more players on ANY team have ZERO power over the number of wins, unless splatoon has some algorythm to pit good players of those teams in mirror matches while leaving the shitters for XvsY matches
you're so retarded i feel the need to post this a whole thread later
>/ink/ is so shit a 14 year old boy is the person who carries them

Real e-sports require intellect a 14 year old does not have, and does not allow grind monkeys to get to the top. All real e-sports don't have little children as their best players.
>Real e-sports require intellect a 14 year old does not have
I'm going to tell you why you're full of shit. One time I was watching a Starcraft 2 tourney, something my friends were into, and there was this kid called KiwiKhaki who was late to his match, because he had to go to dinner with mom. Lots of the people competing that day were that age or younger. Starcraft is as "real e-sports" as it gets.

nigga I haven't posted in this thread once, just watching the shitposting
I am earnestly and unironically DIGGING this new meme, /ink/ is on point today
>he thinks all of /ink/'s decent players are on TMB or TSB
not really, you get non adults in high class tourney of all games all the time. At their age they have better reflexes you'll ever have, and still a lot of mental flexibility to react and think on the go. Just like sport to be honest, all they need is training soon, which isn't hard to achieve with games.
Fuck this thread. First it was the retard who can't do math, then the Ebin spoiler fag who accuses the other person of shitposting, now it's tourney shitposting.
