Even though I am not a member, I think that all gear and weapons shouldn't be allowed. It gives an unfair advantage to those who haven't played the game, while those who actually spent time on the game can't unlock everything in a long time.
I think it should be allowed. Most of the competitive community and community itself as a whole condone it, so we're not going to be much different. That of course is not the main reason. The main reason is save scumming was a technique used where you would order gear from people with a shiny or a pure (shiny = a triple with each sub ability being the same; pure = main and sub abilities all being the same). The community accepted this and loads upon loads of people used it. Gear editing just makes it so much easier to get what you want and not have to stress yourself about getting the gear suitable for your combat. This is definitely one of the weaker forms of hacking in addition to what has already been stated. The safe method is not harmful so long as you turn off your Wii U and shut down the program before actually entering online. Not only is the gear editing program currently safe, but it is also condoned by many a person.

It's really up to whether you guys want to use it or not. We don't 100% recommend it, but we wouldn't point a finger at you if you did edit your gear.

Please add the following two to the allowed list.

- Level Hacking
- Rank Hacking

Personally, I think it should be on the allowed list. This is because, well, you're level and rank doesn't mean shit. you can be S+ and still be a bad player, you can be level 50 and not be the top, it doesn't necessarily effect it.
While I highly question why one would want to hack to S+, hey, that's not my thought.

I get your claims, but personally I do not want people hacking their profiles in regards to ranks/levels. This applies more so to rank than it does to level, but I will treat them both equally. Do we really want people in our clan hacking their ranks and ending up in S+ lobbies but making the clan look bad due to their inability to play with the best of the best? I would not want to encourage that.

It's kind of similar to hacking your VR on MKW. Sure, it may not really have any direct harm, but you look like an idiot if you have 9999VR and lose all of it because it obviously isn't your legit VR. :p

I mean, I see your point also. It's up to you whether it's allowed or not, I'm fine with either. :)

They do have a good point. It's kind of like VR hacking in MKWii and since we already are hesitant about that, why would it be any different for Splatoon. I originally wanted to add it, but I forgot that it's kind of like VR hacking. So therefore, it will not be added.

Yeah, I see your point.
No worries 8-p
Always appreciate the suggestions though! So if you or anyone else has any suggestions, please don't hesitate to post them. :)
