Calamari Cup 3 looms around the corner. The third installment to a popular online Splatoon tournament series is set to feature some of the best talent in the Splatoon community. While the previous two have featured a group stage to single elimination format, Calamari Cup 3 will be adopting a simpler format, going for a straight Double Elimination bracket.

Through 2015 and into the new year, we've seen players come and go. Teams rise and fall. Tournaments and Twitch channels created, and a barrage of new weapons, maps, and gear. Although the future is uncertain, it's quite amazing to see how far Splatoon and its community have come since launch!

We're lucky to have awesome community members stepping up to continue to support the competitive side of Splatoon, and now a select group of such players are back with a brand new Splatoon competition -- Leagues Under The Ink!
Hey there Squids and kids! See that awesome new weapon shown above? It's the Sloshing Machine and it's coming to Splatoon TONIGHT!

This Slosher will be slightly slower but also have a higher damage ratio with a signature swirling ink shot.

Hi squids! It's Hank from Nintendome. As some of you inklings probably know, I am reasonably familiar with Splatoon content production. Well, today I am happy to announce that @TheRapture will be starting a Squidboards content initiative and we need YOUR help to make this happen.

If you have experience with Twitch streaming and/or YouTube video production, please send me a private message either here on Squidboards or on Twitter.

As always, stay fresh!
Hi squids! It's Hank from Nintendome! Nintendo just announced a new 2.2.0 update for Splatoon. They made some adjustments to the ranking system, as well as some light tweaks to game mechanics within ranked game modes. However, the big news with this update comes from Nintendo's weapon balancing.

Notably, Splash Walls, Krakens, and even Inkzookas were all nerfed. Not even the mighty Dynamo Roller was able to escape weapon balancing this time.

If you want all of the specifics, Nintendo has actually provided a comprehensive list...
Hi squids! It's Hank from Nintendome. Nintendo has just announced its weekly content release; this time we are getting the Custom E-Liter 3K Scope as well as the Custom Range Blaster. They are going to be hitting Inkopolis tonight at 7 PM PT!

These are subtle variations of weapons that we already have. The Custom E-Liter 3K Scope gets added range and decreased mobility with the addition of the scope whereas the Custom Range Blaster gains the Splatterbomb sub weapon as well as the Kraken special weapon....

Having won tournaments like SCL Super Ultra Turbo Edition, Booyah Battle 1, and The Salty Splatoon #1 it is no surprise the team has been snatched up by an eSports org....
Nintendo has just announced its Splatoon content release for the week. This time, we are getting the new Carbon Roller Deco weapon and it will be available tonight at 7 PM PT!

This familiar weapon trades in its infamous Burst Bombs and the Inkzooka for the Seeker and the new Seeker Bomb Rush! Other than that, the Carbon Roller Deco is the same Carbon Roller you have grown to love (or in some cases, hate).

While Burst Bombs were a crucial part of the Carbon Roller's kit, we are excited to see how players take advantage of the...
