    I can't decide which troublesome map I want to see for the finale! Blackbelly Skatepark park for the disconnects and easy spawn camping? Moray Towers for the charger target smorgasbord? Mahi-Mahi Resort for the unintentional mass drownings?

    Decisions decisions...

    The sadistic part of me hopes we get the three dumbest stages.
    Something like Saltspray + Blackbelly + Mackerel

    I don't see that as true at all. You're paired with other players at your Splatfest Power level. I was at 1400 this last Splatfest, and I was playing with a whole lot of people who weren't very good at all. I ran into a couple of players who were amazingly good compared to me, and I'm not very good myself. Still lots of low-level players, only a couple of which were so skilled I suspect they were alts. The game is still selling well, with new bundles and new amiibo. Heck, the only other recolor Amiibos are the 30th Anniversary Mario, Gold and Silver Mario, Yarn Yoshi, and Gold Mega Man, which suggests that the initial run of the Inklings way oversold expectations.

    That's why I'm pretty confident this is a restructuring, not a shutdown. Splatfest was a cute idea but its execution left a lot to be desired. It's being replaced by something, I guarantee, and the new Amiibo herald a new way of playing the game.

    I'm going with either Kelp or Walleye for one of the maps. If they both manage to get into the rotation, I'll be super happy.

    A ton of people still play Splatoon. It just appears that way because the new ranking system pairs you up with Level 50s/S+ Rank players, which I'm assuming most of Squidboards gravitates around.

    Just a thought: if they're getting rid of the only way to get snails, they could lower the price of buying slots/rerolls from Spyke.

    Kelp Dome would be a good map for this, plus you can see the outside scenery as well as it has a lot of turf to ink.
    On another note, I really hope that they see the complaints from the fans and at least allow fan-hosted minisplatfests until the sequel comes out?

    The rotation I'd love to see would be Bluefin, Saltspray, and Triggerfish.

    Unless...

    Spyke: "Oi, you wanna use my snails, mate? Times are tough, new price is 300,000. Wot? I scratch your back an you scratch mine, remember?"

    OH! I have a thing I can add here, but I don't think it will happen...
    I really, sincerely hope that Nintendo pulls a sudden move on us and makes it so that it's Marie vs. Callie instead of Callie vs. Marie.
    It would be really, really heartwarming to see this happen for the last splatfest...

    I like how Kelp Dome is the most popular so far.:)

    Don't blame them. It's such a level playing field sort of map.

    Flat terrain, hardly any inkable walls that are useful, difficult to control center, poor sniper perches, hardly any hiding places--so boring!

    It's nice if you need money though. I mean who doesn't want over 1000 points?

    This is a sobering thought. I would advocate all remaining Splatoon players to move to Japan and help shape this island into the official land of squids. We were meant for so much more in this world. If they think we're niche, if they want to throw us out like yesterday's ikasumi pasta, we'll just go somewhere we'll be respected and appreciated.

    Welcoming all worldwide squids to the shores of Japan with open arms 2k16. Let's keep the community fresh くコ:彡 くコ:彡 くコ:彡
