I play Splatoon with the Switch connected to a TV,
Definitely LAN (wired) connection from the Switch to the internet router.
Very fast internet
Absolutely no other use of the internet during play
I use pro-wireless controllers (FWIW I don't have a wired pro controller)
1000+ hours experience playing Splatoon FWIW
FWIW I use a normal old splatroller
Sometimes when you sit down to play Splatoon, the best way I can explain this is your character walks slowly.
For some reason the actual motion speed of the character - let's say normally 3 m/s - really seems to be reduced - let's say to 2 or 1.5 m/s.
I just cannot understand how this can be.
• If your bandwidth is crap, you'll get jitter/jumping, but it can't magically affect the actual walking speed of the chartacter
• Incredibly, when this happens, it even happens in the foyer. So, simply walking from the start position over to the game portal, it feels like your character is walking slowly. WTF?
• It seems like the rest of the game is proceeding normally, and only I am walking slowly. So, it seems like the other team mates and enemies and general stuff like moving objects are all moving at their normal speed, it's only me who "can't walk at a normal speed". It's hard to judge this for sure.
(I totally lose when this happens, which suggests, it's only happening to me, but, who knows - it's hard to say for sure.)
• Whenever this starts happening, I reset the Switch - has never helped.
• Whenever this starts happening (like this morning!) it seems to go on for an hour or so - it's always a few games. Eventually, it comes good, perhaps later in the day.
• I think, and this is bizarre, it only affects your walking speed (that is to say rolling speed), sliding in ink speed seems normal. Not sure.
• I've tried quickly changing controllers (WTF? who knows) when this happens, it's unclear if it helps
It just makes no conceptual sense that a character would "slow down" in a MPP game, like, sure you may get jumps and dropouts and jitter but how could the actual "walking speed" change?
This is such an obvious problem you'd think there'd be a million complaints about it everywhere.
• Does anyone else experience this?
• Is there any cure?
