    There were times I did not bother to level up the shirt and my team won the Splatfest anyway and times when I did level and lost them.

    I never pre-level my Splatfest tees. :p

    That's quite an assumption and a hasty generalization right there. One of my friends and I have played since launch, and neither of us bother with our Splatfest tees until we're forced to during the Splatfest itself.

    A year ago I would work hard to get the slots unlocked on the thing, but I stopped bothering with it back in December. I don't really see a benefit to expending the effort ahead of time when I can focus on having fun instead. It's just a game after all.

    Anecdote related to Splatfest Tees: the other day in S Ranked, I saw one Roller-user (don't remember which weapon, exactly) with theirs equipped. By the looks of it, when levelling it up pre-Fest, they'd happened to get two Special Saver subs, so they had decided to run a gear set based around that theme - industrious!

    Has anyone here ever gotten an amazing initial roll on one of their Splatfest Tees and been sad to lose it after the event?

    Yes! I got two strength and one bomb range up on it, which fit perfectly into my pre-nerf splattershot (burst bombs) build. Ultimately, losing it was fine because special saver wasn't all that important, but it was good for that splatfest.

    I always level my shirt early so that I can determine what other gear I can use that will fit with those slots. But, I'm kind of a gear junkie, so...

    I got triple damage up a Splatfest or 2 ago. It was my first(and only) natural rolled shirt ,.,

    Same, I don't level up my splatfest tees pre-fest either, but that was more or less my point. Not ALL veterans level up splatfest tees but generally noobs don't. Most of the people that do are the crazy competitive obsessed it rolls, mostly high rank/level people and their alts. Who among the group that has less than 30 hours in on the game and is in the low levels is really running around leveling up splatfest tees? It's something that people seem to think of later when they have nothing else to level up.
    I had one with double damage and a damage main back in one of the mid-winter fests. I hated to give that thing up. My chargers would have loved it...

    That happened to me back with one of the first Splatfests.

    Again, it's an assumption. I was so hyped for the Splatfests in the beginning (GO TEAM CAT!) that I would always work on my Splatfest tee beforehand. My fiançée did the same as well when I gave her the game late last year. And neither of us are competitive players.

    Honestly, I stopped unlocking the slots beforehand as my life has been falling apart; I've stopped caring. I'd probably still be working on the tees otherwise and maybe if things turn around I'll start working on those slots again.

    Most of the time I'll work to get my shirt leveled up before the Splatfest begins, so I can play at more-or-less full strength. Rarely if ever do I get a good roll on the shirt, though, so I guess it's not the most important thing in the world.

    Not so much an assumption as a broad but generally accurate stereotype of noobs and competitive players. It doesn't apply to everyone but as a broad stroke it's fairly accurate ;)

    I think judging from what I have seen. It seems like Night Owl is the more popular time. I hope the more popular team has a decent chance to win this team. I rather choose a Splatfest team that I truly support for instead of lying and joining the other team for the sake of having a better chance at winning the Splatfest.

    Honestly, I don't feel all that attached to either team... I'd much rather wake up at a reasonable hour than stay up late or get up early. That said, I have a hard time staying up past 2 a.m. and have to get up a bit early for work, so I guess on balance I'm an early bird.

    Doesn't your own rank/level have an impact on who ends up being in your turf war lobbies? Most of my TW lobbies are like the ones you described: mostly level 50s with the occasional lower level squidkid. But when I join up with people who are a different level/rank than I am, I've noticed that the rest of the people in the lobby also tend to be lower levels that what I usually see in TW. Granted, that's just my experience; I don't really know how TW matchmaking works.

    I think I'll have to resort to using the patented "SyMag Splatfest Pick-a-Side-for-Me Test™" again:

    Comparing the levels and ranks of those in my lobby at showtime

    I was feeling morbid at work today and thought I would like to join Team Never Wake Up At All.

    I'm feeling better now.

    Well, it looks like I won't be Splatfesting after all. A good friend died and the funeral is Saturday.

    You guys better rep night owls for me!
