    Normally I could enjoy a splatfest even during the matches when my team is defeated. This one however, I was unable to create any joy out of—which I find a whole lot worse than simply losing.

    I take some small giggles in knowing that team Night Owl squads had to take a number and wait their turn to play us. And that if any members of team Early Bird took a break for any period of time we'd be unable to make full squads.

    29% to 71% popularity
    49% to 51% wins
    Both in night owl's favor.

    Wow, that popularity...

    Okay, everyone back in the pool! Time to cut loose your tensions in rank and normal turf war.

    I was actually expecting a much higher popularity so I was genuinely surprised at everything with these results. o.o We are finally free of the curse. \owo/ Good job, Team Night Owl~ c: I met a lot of good players. I wish I could have seen the Early Birds a little more frequently but it was nice to meet so many good players from Team Night Owl.

    I feel like we should prepare for the salt... *hides*

    I'm going to be disappointed if the riot police don't show up for next Splatfest. It can only be the next step from there.

    It's theorized that it all has to do with the Amiibo coming out.

    I'm so glad the more popular team won. The Splatfest Power System is really working at preventing constant lopsided wins for the less popular teams. It's nice we can pick the team we want and not having to worry about losing just because you know the team you picked is more popular.

    Calli and Marie Splatfest seems imminent. I think it's a matter of time before it shows up.

    I played for a while at the end and won probably 90% of my matches, but I guess it wasn't enough. Oh well, at least the curse was broken.

    I feel like this is a fluke, and we'll be back to the old pattern next fest.

    Also, conspiracy theory, "next fest is for keeps"? WHAT IF IT'S THE LAST ONE????

    I don't think they'd do that, but just a thought.

    Wait...what we actually won? How in the...I can't...what? I knew there was a potential of me being wrong but this is unexpected still. I have no idea what to think of splatfest anymore.

    WHAT DID I TELL YOU??* This was the american version of Pro/Anti Pineapple.


    *(actually I simply guessed, haha)


    I'd laugh if NintendoNA was like, "oh, this is close. but we should give owls the 2% to win so they're going to stop this whole popularity=loss thing".


    Congrats Owls!
    But hey, EUOC-Ninjas still hold the highest popularity in Splatfests so far: 77% ;)

    I see a number of people theorizing that the next Splatfest would be the last one given Callie and Marie's attitude during the result screen. Honestly it wouldn't surprise me if they went out with a bang and actually DID make the last choice between the Squid Sisters themselves. I admit it did seem a bit peculiar that they were so sassy with one another; it's a huge contrast to their usual banter.

    The two important things to take away from the results are that popularity doesn't necessarily dictate the team winner anymore (with the new system), and EVERYONE suffered through this Splatfest. Good job from both teams, the skill level was very clearly evenly matched.
