Splatoon 3 is a blast. When you can actually play a match.
It seems not even Nintendo was prepared for the massive success of the game, because I’d say one out of every three online matches I play ends early due to a disconnected player.
Connection errors are running rampant, and while that’s not unheard of in a wildly popular online game its first week, what’s (not so) amusing is that Nintendo’s system views this as rage-quitting a match. I’ve not gotten a ban yet, but the system has started warning me of the consequences if I keep leaving the matches (that it kicks me out of). I’ve heard of others actually getting 10, 30, even 60min bans from the game for the disconnects.
Supposedly there’s a patch incoming soon.
