I think blue was the favourite anyways, since everyone thought the kids would flock to red. I've only played one red vs red match the entire time, so the numbers seem pretty even this time around?? Future vs past I was playing future vs future a solid 25% of the time.

Wait... Team Red lost all three matches!? How embarrassing...

I am starting to wonder if now the tallies are too skewed the other way. Like, at the start the x2 for victories made popularity more important to the point of being unfair, but the new x6 makes it almost meaningless. It's a matter of picking the unpopular team rather than who you actually want to pick and rarely does the popular team win, so the results are pretty much known from the start. They should probably go back to x4 for victories to even it out a bit.

After an hour and a half of server maintenance. The NA results are in:
Popularity Red/Blue: 55%-45%
Wins Red/Blue: 41*6-59*6
301-399

Blue wins.

The Reds are feeling the blues now!

I'm really glad I decided to go with blue instead of red. I had the feeling they would win.

Marie breaks her losing streak by winning the first global theme. Good for her, and me, because I chose Blue.

I had a pretty solid win streak at the end of about 17 wins for blue and now I'm at 222 snails haha

It seems the Japanese will have region-locked times for their usual stuff, seeing as both NA and Europe will be busy with Splatfests next weekend.

For NA, we have Snowmen VS. Sandcastles!

For EU, we have Hoverboards VS. Jetpacks!

(Reminder that Splatfests now take into account your skill level, so it may not be a good idea to blindly pick the unpopular side hoping to beat the novice players...)

Callie's speech is just cringeworthy.

I'm not going to participate this one as I don't care for neither.

I find the NA theme to be rather bland: the Europe one is amazing, though.

I think I'm going to pick sandcastles, simply because I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere.

I'm probably gonna get a Wii U for Pokken Tournament, what would you guys recommend about Splatoon?

I've only heard good things about the game, and was wondering what makes the game so good.

Since the console bundle's work out saving you a lot of money rather than just buying a console, I was looking at getting the Mario Kart 8 + Splatoon Wii U Premium bundle for playing Pokken on.

...You pick things you don't like?

It's essentially a Call of Duty game that's utterly different by providing a player to hide and travel through ink on the ground for stealth.

It also has some brilliant modes that set it apart from any other third-person shooter.

Sounds pretty sweet aha, the Splatfests look cool as well. The Pokemon Red/Blue one I saw had me wishing I already had my Wii U :/

I picked sandcastles because I'd pick the beach over a field of snow any day. (Kid Tangeh would have disagreed :)). Glad the skill level is finally being taken into effect, not gonna affect me any though, still just gonna pick whatever side I like better. I'm sitting at A rank right now, pretty close to A+ but I haven't quite gotten there yet!

No actually I was just doing a popular reference to Anakin's line in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.
But no kid: I think sandcastles are a lot more challenging to do than snowmen, and I prefer the overall idea. I get a lot of snow here and I'm tired of it. :3

I still don't know whether to choose Hoverboards or Jet Packs.

Given the new system will make the win percentage much more even, the more popular team might have a slightly better shot at winning the whole thing. I'm not passionate about either theme this time (though Jet Packs sound slightly cooler :p) so I'm trying to see which is more popular.

I like how Splatfests went from having fun to being extremely competitive with the new matchup system.

...Which I kind of don't.

Yeah, what's this with the "points" appearing in matches now ? When was this added and what's its purpose ?

Depending on your Ranked rank, your amount of points will match you up with players equally or close in skill to that number.

B - 1000
A - 1200
S - 1400
S/S+ - 1600

By now you should know how problematic the top one is, since it mixes TWO ranks together.

How come I started at 1400 if I'm ranked A- ?
