    SNAKEPARK OUT OF RANKED. FINALLY. that stage was awful.

  • Bruno_Ostara

    Im a bit bitter that we have more ranks already, i had just got to 12 :~~

    • Bart

      Was that the max rank in V1 then? Go you, pretty sure I’ll be 7 forever… xD

      • ≈ KobobKC ≈

        Max was 15 actually.

      • Bruno_Ostara

        Yeah, mas was 15. I had just got to rank 12 and they changed to 20 hahaha It happened the same with me in Splatoon

    F*ck snakepark so happy it’s gone from ranked mode. Who thought those hover boards were good for competitive play in the first place

    • Bruno_Ostara

      I main Master Mummy and if he gets knocked off the hover boards and the opponent is good its game over. He is too slow to get up again. Its absurd. Thats the best news i could have about this game

  • Francesco Gentile

    Finally no more Snakepark in ranked! And finally Ribbon Girl and Kid Cobra nerfed. Now only Ninjara has to, even though the grab nerf seems pointed to him…
