    I must be one of the few who is glad to see Splatfests go. A neat feature that got old by Splatfest #3. Yes a big feature of the game is going, but who really cares that much anyway? I hate being forced into Turf for 24+hrs with 3 maps and nothing else to do. I'll miss night time maps and the Splatfest songs (even if it gets repetitive), but the rest? Not so much. If you want Snails, even if you don't like the idea, run the kernel exploit and the 999 Snail hack. Problem solved. I agree with Lonely Dolphin on this though, I certainly expected Splatfests to go on longer than a year but all in all, not a huge loss at all. I may just go Callie for that amazing ink colour, though I find Marie better for her sass and burns during Splatfest announcements. Callie is too naive and basically an airhead, so is kind of lame in comparison. I just hope Museum gets picked tbh, we only had it once in PAL regions. I reckon Japan is on its own after the Miitomo Top 200 comprising Japanese players only more or less. My issue is we have a 48hr Splatfest on the horizon, which will not be fun at all. I reckon the top 200 will be those who grind the entire Splatfest and hit 4000+ or something dumb with their Splatfest Power.

    It's pretty sad how Splatoon's coming to a close, but I think its already universally expected/known we'll get a sequel on NX, so its not all that bad.

    Still, I'm pretty sad this'll be the last one...

    I'm team Marie for this one, I'm pretty sure Team Marie will win the popularity portion of the event.

    Huge bummer that this is the last one. Really hoping the NX has a decent price now.

    All I ask is, the fanart better be spectacular. So many crossover battles to depict. So many things to use from their personalities. Lets close this one with the most ferver and finesse we can provide.

    This is extremely depressing that it's the end of Splatfest. They've been miserable experiences of late, and I'm sure the reason for their end is because, basically, they realize they're broken and there's too few remaining players to make it work well. But it still sucks, and I can't help but think it's primarily about working toward the NX unveiling and tapering support for existing games. Sadly, it's not like they're releasing much of anything else on WiiU in the mean-time. Color Splash is literally the very last and only remaining WiiU game to release (other than Zelda which is more of an NX release), you mean to tell me they want to kill off Splatoon AND have no games for 8 months? The Nintendo planning geniuses are at it again...

    Thank goodness 3DS owners at least have Metroid Prime: Federation Force to look forward to during that time! (*hides under the table.*)

    This is why you do NOT tie critical in-game currency to a scheduled event. No splatfest causes actual play issues.

    Shame, only have 40 snails or so on my alts. Probably wont grind the last fest too much either. And I'm not doing the hacks. So I'll return to never rerolling anything and sticking with the first natural roll, more or less.

    So... what about the snails Nintendo? You gotta make a new way for them. (Also, the servers might still be up after the NX is released for a while til the next year... but who knows? Splatoon was released on the Wii U's deathbed)

    Just got up to the news.
    WAT
    COME ON GUYS
    but you know, who wasn't expecting the theme and for this to be the last?

    I probably won't be able to play the first day of Splatfest, tho ;-; So it's pretty much my usual 24-hour fest.

    MARIE TO THE DEATH YALL
    (SOrry Callie love you but Marie has always been my favorite)

    I've never drawn the Squid Sisters but I'll try to this Splatfest. THis is definitely a special occasion.

    I'm really hoping they continue with Splatoon. The last splatfest? This is so depressing, for me! There are so many THIS vs THATs which have not been resolved by an adorable Callie vs Marie feud, yet! Were they looking for more sponsors for splatfest but just aren't getting many bites? I will definitely miss Inkopolis by night :<

    I could care less about being forced in to turf for 24 hours because I used to play ranked all the time, but now I play turf to give myself a break. I'm a full time grad student that works full time, so I don't need all the stress that ranked brings, all the time. Rank lost it's appeal to me after I reached S and S+.

    So I just realized something. In the last Splatfest thread (EB vs. NO) I said I was done with Splatfests for good. So does this mean Nintendo heard me and said "fine, no more Splatfests for anybody, nice job d**k"?

    This is all my fault, don't hate me guys T_______T

    rip the snail economy?

    I'm gonna miss the ol' nighttime rotations, those were really nice. What I'm not gonna miss is the 4 hour grindfest of lag and salt. Still, it's a little sad knowing Splatfest is ending, I remember how exciting and riveting the first Splatfest was and how everyone was having a good time. I guess it's good that it's ending, I'm not sure how many more Splatfests I could've taken otherwise.

    btw loyalty > snails in this Splatfest, let's go Team Marie! >:0

    Already? Jeez. Earning extra sea snails is going to be a pain in the ***.

    Team Marie all the way. :3

    Well isn't that something... Wonder why they are ending Splatfests now instead of a later date.
    No matter. I'm going with Callie, and this time, I WILL WIN!!!

    Nintendo better lowers the price for rerolls to 15.000!

    Otherwise I have to find at least 7 players who will join the lobby and farm points in turf war with me :<

    That's the heart of it. I'll miss the themes and the night time events and all, but after they butchered the fun out of actually playing splatfests back before snow/sand, it's really just about the snails. The plaza is more fun than the playing during fests now! The last time I actually enjoyed it was Pokemon red/blue. I've TRIED to enjoy it since then, but Sand/snow was horrendous torture, Spongebob was "ok" but unpleasant, fancy/costume was better only because japan was included and it lasted longer. I missed most of this past one but it sounds like I didn't miss much.

    Still it seems much too soon to end splatfests AND kill the reroll economy. Perhaps that tells us just HOW few people are really still playing this game according to their metrics. OR it means new features are coming in a patch? Splatoon, Smash, and MK8 are seriously the only things they have going to try to sell WiiU's this Christmas....and they certainly don't have any NX's to sell.... You can't tell me they accept having nothing viable to sell for 8 months.

    i finally have an excuse to flood my miiverse account with marie!

    joking aside, i'm happy this is the first splatfest in a while i can make (any other saturday and i would've missed it for marching band). i've only been around since past vs future, and it sucks that i didn't get the full splatfest experience people who have had the game the full time have. ah well. time to become a marie king.
