Squidboards Update: SQSS September Wrap-Up, Incoming Art & Guide Contests

Hello everyone! ^_^ If you don’t know me, I’m Rapture. I’m the GM of Squidboards, one of the site’s admins, and SQ’s head event organizer. You may see me on Twitter, the SQ Discord, or around the forums sometimes. If not, no big deal. This isn’t about me. I want to briefly discuss and touch on this past weekend’s Squidboards Splat Series event, as well as a few new things brewing for SQSS and the site as a whole. Although I think the outcome of our first Splat Series tournament speaks for itself, there are still a few spots I’d like to fill in. That goes for what’s in store for Squidboards in the near future, too

SAI Event Update: Qualifier Points System Change, Sign-ups, and Discord Server

The Splatoon Anniversary Invitational (SAI) is an online, double-elimination event on Saturday, May 28th. Sixteen teams invited from four community qualifier tournaments will battle it out to be crowned a new Splatoon champion! [Event Page] Event Update: Change to distribution of qualifying points: We have changed the points distribution system for the four SAI qualifier events this weekend and next: Teams can still enter as many qualifier events as they want. However, only their two best finishes will be added together to determine a team's point total. Initially, every event that a team entered would count towards a team's point total. This would have given teams who entered more tournaments a better chance of qualifying, even if they may not have finished farther in a given qualifier compared to another team. Teams that only enter one qualifier will receive points from the one event they did enter and a "0" for not entering a second event. Teams that entered two qualifiers...
