    When Reggie Fils-Aime indicated that he has a desire to turn Splatoon into an esport, many people began to wonder what a competitive Splatoon scene would actually look like. Well, it has been 3 months since the game’s launch and we are finally getting a chance to see this develop.

    SiVa Gaming, known for sponsoring smash players in the past, has sponsored a Splatoon team! Yes, SiVa has set their eyes on iTi (in The Ink), a NorCal based squad that is looking to make a splash in competitive Splatoon. This comes hot on the heels of Panda Global Gaming’s own foray into Inkopolis. If SiVa has their way, you will be seeing iTi’s name all over tournament brackets soon.

    Here was iTi's squad for the Ink Or Sink tournament:

    Nanerz | TheeTheNanerz
    Torizo | SmashBroIV
    Rice | WhiteRice
    duck | dluckystarfax
    SuperOven | Super0ven
    hunty | thedoctorU

    I am sure all eyes will be on iTi in future Splatoon tournaments!

    Let us know what teams you think should be sponsored next! For more information on competitive Splatoon, be sure to keep your eyes peeled to SquidBoards! Special thanks to @Flying_Tortoise for helping with this post.
