    If anything, this point makes her dialogue here come off as even worse.

    But we really, really should move off of this subject, it's going nowhere.

    Seems like more people are going for snowman, so I'm going for sandcastle. Lower population wins cuz less likely to have as many newbies and less likely to go up against the same team, which won't count towards the final score :p

    Please don't insult my intelligence by saying I struggle with context simply because I (and others) came across a new word. The slang word is pretty new on the internet and isn't even a top result when you search for it. And as Missingnumbers said, the context couldn't even be inferred from what little Callie said. That at least you should concede. Anyway, enough about the stupid slang. I don't intend on playing this splatfest as I said earlier, so good luck to everyone who participates.

    Do remember that Splatfest rules changed and it now acts like a psudo ranked mode for Turf Wars:

    http://splatoonus.tumblr.com/post/141037615684/one-of-our-interns-has-learned-that-starting-with

    I'm not saying you should not pick the less popular team but keep in mind that "meta"ing Splatfests probably won't work as well as it used to in the past.

    Oh yeah, that's right! This will be the first run for the new splatfest system for us outside the JP region. Guess I'll try to check some streams to see how it works.

    That's a nightmare? That actually sounds pretty good to me... I wouldn't mind taking a few months off to sit around and play Splatoon.

    Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

    Matter of fact, the recent Japanese Splatfest actually had the more popular team win for once, bucking the trend of "popularity = loss" for the first time since Europe's pineapple Splatfest. Then again, this is America we're talking about. It might be business as usual over here.

    the problem with that is that is common with them though, general:
    Japan pop wins most of the time . Japan also holds the highest pop team to ALSO won battles, milk tea with 68%pop/55% battle, compare that to, lolninjas of EU and NA, yeah they had higher pops, but nowhere close to winning battles.
    NA unpop wins
    EU 1/2, 1/2

    A few months of playing Splatoon is nice. But if that splatoon is interrupted by 3 hour periods of hard labor, numb fingers (try using inkbrush!), inability to get anywhere you're supposed to be and daily life just being overall more difficult: Need to go get something from the store? Prepare an extra half hour to dig out (or 3 hours if it's big snow! But watch every crevice on every surface MAY in fact be frictionless icy danger!) and by the time you're done you're curled up on the ground exhausted from moving a few hundred pounds of material, and that's before you get your day STARTED. Then there's all the problems that crop up (ice damaging things etc.)

    Humbug!

    There's certainly people that do like it. A lot. I will never understand these freaks of nature :p

    oh trust me i freaking love it here, though my island isn't exactly beaches and palm trees everywhere. there is a lot though, i think like 15 beaches where you can swim, but it's like a minimum 20-30 minute drive from my house to the nearest beach, but once you get to that part of the island it's pretty much picture perfect Caribbean ;). i'm kinda the opposite. i LOVE gloom weather. live here long enough and you eventually get sick of the sun. it goes from this heavenly source of light and warmth to this infernal ball of burning plasma that constantly rains rays of fiery death. whenever i see dark clouds i get excited because than it'll rain (hopefully that is, rain is really rare these days) and i love it. i'm not much of an outdoor person and love the sound of rain and the cool temperature (though i do hate extreme cold:confused:). i've always wanted to experience snow and winter, but never got the chance. i'll probably enjoy it for a month before getting sick of the cold, but i'd probably find a way around it.

    There are several conflicting groups in this splatfest:
    •Snowman:
    -Because Frozen
    -Cold climate, so they have lots of snow
    -Warm climate, because they have no snow
    -Really like slang​
    •Sandcastle:
    -Becaue Frozen
    -Beach, because they have lots of sand
    -No beach, because they have no sand
    -Really hate slang​

    Oh yeah, some people might just have a personal preference...
    I'm team snowman because I live in Nebraska, where we should get snow, but haven't had much snow for the last several years.
