I was literally just going to post in the thread that tonight is SPLATOON 2 MULTIPLAYER NIGHT!
With Spaltoon 2 what we do is join into online multiplayer with randoms and then join on each other. UNLESS there is enough of us to do private battles. If there's enough of us for private battles then we do private battles up until people start dropping out and then we again jump in with randoms. It's hard to know which way to go with setting up this if we don't know how many are going to show up.
We'll see how the turnout is tonight and go from there.
One More thing, join the discord. Even if you aren't in the chat you can post in the text chat, makes it easier to keep an eye on who is playing, and if you fancy listening to the chat abut not chatting yourself you can join the voice chat and just be muted.
