Changes to Salmon Run
The interval between hitting a Golden Egg and being able to use it was roughly the same for all players. By adjusting the animation speed when a Golden Egg enters a non-host player’s life ring, the interval between hitting a Golden Egg and being able to use it is now roughly the same for host players and not host. However, if the communication delays exceed a certain level, the timing may not be the same as the host player.
This update focuses on adding Splatfest data, adjusting Splatfest Points, and changing online multiplayer.
For Splatfest Points, adjustments to the halftime ratio should make it less like the winning team has already been decided.
For primary weapons, the changes should highlight unique weapon characteristics and strengthen certain secondary and special weapon combinations.
For sub-weapons, the changes should create more ways to use certain sub-weapons, as well as reduce strategies that used repetitive use of certain sub-weapons.
For special weapons, we have reviewed and adjusted the performance of each special weapon now that the use of new special weapons in Splatoon 3 is more established.
For the new Kraken Royale special weapon, its basic abilities are unchanged, but it has been adjusted in some modes to reduce adverse circumstances.
For Salmon Run, the changes should ensure that the lag will be minimal regardless of the host system. The selection of the host system for wireless play in one or all game modes may change, either adding functionality or improving communication efficiency. Therefore, we take steps to minimize lag, regardless of the host system.
We plan to release the next update at the end of the current season. It will mainly focus on balance tweaks and adding features for the new season starting in June.
