    SyMag, we need you on the early birds. We're one man down, we have to do this. Also, let's see if we can get on the same team. Anyone else want to try this?

    Yeah, I just realized that. This is also why we need you! Or maybe I'm the only one that needs you at this point.

    I didn't see you edited it. I might join Early Birds since everyone's going Night Owl...we'll see.

    This might actually be the first splatfest where two people like us can actually be on the same team! Also, why is there no join a friend mode? Seriously, why can't I just immediatly go to one of the squads my friend is playing in and join him/her?

    I'm not sure how to take that :p

    That's one thing I've never been able to understand either. You think they'd have made that a thing by now

    I somehow forgot all about splatfest. Probably because I was too lazy to actually level up the shirt. Gonna sleep the day away and wake up sometime between 8pm-12 am probably. Go team Night Owl.

    Did I just hear someone asking for theories on Splatoon's matchmaking system?? :p

    IMO the system tries to match you with your actual skill, not your rank or level. On my alt accounts, by the time I was level 4 and unranked it was throwing me against the level 50 high skill players. By the time I was level 11 and had a C- rank still most of my TW lobbies consisted of my usual A/A+/S/S+ players. it learned VERY fast my actual skill and matched me accordingly. Thus when you join lower skill players it's probably building lobbies based on those players measured skill, and there's a common thinking that "alts get matched with alts" (not because it knows they're alts but because it knows their skill.)

    Which of course doesn't cover that the matchmaker is overwhelmingly outrageously horrible at measuring skill. It also doesn't explain splatfests where two teams have the same splatfest power and thus similar ranks and yet clearly demonstrate wildly different skill levels.

    That's SOOOOO Marie!

    "SyMag, DualQuelcher, CM2, and GG1ng3rGar1 like this"

    Either you four are simply horrible, horrible people or this represents the problem with a 'like' button. :p

    Sorry to hear that Tim! :(

    Allowing allied players to wield voice/discord/PM chat to the detriment of unfair advantage? And you couldn't just swap teams like regular TW since you're assigned on different actual teams. So whoever was in a lobby against a team of friends would be at extreme disadvantage.

    I'm just liking this because I'm glad that other night owl people liked it and it showed that they're going to play for Tim when playing for the Night Owls. Don't know why SyMag liked it though.

    Yeah, I just always get a laugh when someone has some horrible news and a site shows how many people like it! It's always an internet facepalm issue (Plus I know @SupaTim enough to know he'll appreciate the humor of it ;) )

    Well, as (bad) luck would have it, circumstances are such that I won't be moving for another week or so. I may be able to participate in this one after all. No doubt my skills are rusty as hell, however, so I get the feeling I'd be of more harm than help to the rest of you Night Owls. If that's the case, then I'm just gonna sit back and cheer from the sidelines.

    That was a problem with the like button XD I was mostly liking the 'rep Night Owl for me' part

    And for @DualQuelcher , I might be a double agent. *shrug* But mostly Team Night Owl

    I thought I was done with these dumb videos for this topic, I guess not. You people are not listening to Sonic.
