I swear to god, every time the entire enemy team has set up camp in the middle of the map and we need really need to make a push and gain some ground, there's always ONE guy that splits away from the group to paint something off to the side at the last second before we get to the middle and we lose the push. Every time.

Then he dies too, in a hailstorm of aerospray and shame.

That's because they're right and you're wrong.

Mayo is going to win because all the ketchup players are the same idiots that don't know how to play turf wars either. I was doing okay last night but mayo loving rolls my team every single time now because they understand "ink and fire your gun"

Yeah, I'm not even that good and I'm just cleaning up with 1000+ rounds most times with 5-7 kills. I mean, I'm a degenerate with an Aerospray, but sheesh.

I was worried that I wouldn't be able to contribute that well because I had to play over cellular data, but I went on a roll for my ketchup bros. Got to around 1950 rating before becoming King and trounced on mayo constantly. Had about 2:1 win loss. Much better showing on my part compared to the first splatfest where I got around 1650 rating.

Oh, I can get team matches working. You just don't want to be on mine.

I played like a loving idiot focused on just getting kills and somehow still ended up +1000 and highest ranked on my team. Team ketchup everyone.

Getting matched up against other Ketchup teams a fair bit. Though I'm starting to think while Ketchup has quantity, Mayo has quality.

In splat 1, I think most of the splatfests had one team win the popular vote, and the other win the actual game win%. I think the running theory is more kids are likely to choose the popular one, so the unpopular one has a lower chance of getting you matched up with them, so skilled players can carry harder.

I zoom into the enemy base to splat the enemy like the shithead player I am and what does my team do instead of ink? They all try to superjump to me. In the middle of enemy base. Good job. Team ketchup go. I was still max rank

Yeah, basically. Find an angle they aren't covering and hit it. Pressure area denial guys like splatlings and chargers from weird angles when you can. Otherwise just get in the mix and make the enemy team be where you want.

If those payout totals are correct it's a little disappointing from the standpoint that it feels like the actual results of the battles don't matter much. The key to winning Splatfest is just playing a bunch, doesn't matter if you're winning or not.

there are multiple splatfest songs though so that is a massive improvement over the first game, not even joking

I actually like the splatfest music better than the regular rotation.

I'm ok with that because it encourages players to play instead of just resting on their laurels waiting for the other team to win the Splattershot for them

Splatoon 1 was what, 5 for max on losing team 10 if maxed on winners?

If we put this into 50,000 per snail like it was in the original the difference is nuts.

Splatoon1 - Win 500,000 Lose 250,000
Splatoon2- Win 1,200,000 Lose 1,150,000

I think the difference between winning and losing in S1 was like 6 snails. It's never made that much of a difference, I don't think I ever even used half of them.

So far so good, I've managed to win the right rounds against egg yolk consumers, but I'm only half-way to Ketchup King. Time to cinch this.

Is anyone doing the team Splatfest? I guess goons at the discord side are up to that.
