    It was on Arowana Mall. The Octoling had unique voice clips and everything. It was using the Hydra Splatling, an unreleased weapon. My team won though. At the results screen, the Octoling has its own icon.

    And now my USB save keep freezing at the title screen. Great.

    If you disconnect before the match ends, I don't believe they'll be in your plaza.

    It just pisses me off. If I didn't have multiple save files, I would have lost everything and/or had to wait until Octolings and the Hydra Splatling came out. Even then, who knows it that would work.

    So encountering the hacker caused a desync that corrupted your data. That sucks.

    No. I checked my Recently Played Opponents list, but none of the people I played were added. As soon as I exited to the plaza, the whole game froze up.

    I should have stayed until he left. Then it would have been safe to quit. Too bad I couldn't get any pictures.

    Sucks. at least you had a spare. with my luck, i'd disconnect during the next lobby, forcing a crash and being stuck with a bum save. At least we know the octoling data now includes icons. But as an aside, did you see enough hydra to get an idea for how it handles?

    From what I remember, it had insane range.

    Also, the name started with a k and had numbers in it.

    Honestly, I'm not sure what people are gaining from hacking the game other than pissing off everyone they meet with their data being corrupted and crashing. They probably know that game cannot handle the data since it hasn't been added yet, but they still do it. Idiots...

    Agreed. I don't know if it was Nikki, but I'm very sure hackers are aware of softlocking the console when the game tries to load an Octoling in the plaza. A lot of work went into some of these profiles they're corrupting and they do it anyway, risking a ban and possibly ruining someone's hours and hours of work. They are idiots.

    If by chance any of you meet an Octoling online, don't leave the room or you'll find your profile softlocked. Wait for the hacker to go, he will eventually. Nintendo needs to get this worked out fast. You can't have a hacker running around ruining profiles of the unaware. Especially when he's using stuff you don't want the public to know about just yet.

    Edited with better advice, thanks @GeneraLight

    you said you had a backup? is the other save not too far off your main? did you uninstall and reinstall the game data? never played with modded accounts, so i can only give 1-800 suggestions.

    Yeah I did. Everything went back to normal after I restored it.

    Anyone who encounters a hacker. DO NOT LEAVE THE ROOM. Keep playing until one match after they leave so the plaza doesn't soft-lock. Then post their NNID here

    Huh, interesting. So people playing with Octolings online will cause the other players' games to freeze and become unplayable if the game tries ot load the Octoling into the plaza?

    That'd be troublesome for me--I usually have to squeeze matches in between other things I'm doing, and quite often, I have to get going and declare a particular match my last one.

    While Nikki did upload a short clip of the Hydra Splatling covering a splatzone on the other side of Triggerfish, most of her statements on twitter indicate she's not one to unleash these hacks on the public eye. it's definitely someone who got a similar setup to work.
