    UPDATE: I'm no longer the contact person for this group, please contact @Ansible if you'd like to join it.
    UPDATE: We now have a discord group. PM @Ansible if you'd like to be added to it.

    Hey there.

    Is anyone up for some private battles? A group of us (@Award, @Reila, and some people off-site originally, a lot more people now) have been playing private battles on the weekends and wanted to see if anyone else would like to join in.

    Q&A

    What ranks are you looking for?
    Rank and experience level really don't matter. As long as you enjoy Splatoon and want to practice some of the ranked modes without worrying about losing rank points, you're welcome to join. The plan is to evenly distribute people based on rank to keep things pretty balanced, so it's totally fine if you're not a pro. I'm not exactly a great player myself, haha.

    How big is the group?
    Right now it's about 25-30 people, but there's not really a limit to how many people we'd like to have be part of it. Since people have different schedules and conflicts and stuff, we're always happy to have more people. Worst case scenario, we can just have a couple lobbies going at the same time or have two different groups or something.

    When do you play?
    So far we've played on Friday and Saturday nights, usually at around 7:30 p.m. CT (about 12:30 UTC). There's not really a set schedule at this point though, so if those days and times don't work for you, feel free to let us know and we should be able to work something out. People in the discord group also play at all sorts of different time, so it's totally fine if the weekend sessions don't work for you.

    Is there a commitment?
    No. We usually set up private battle sessions through the discord group and our group PM here. You can feel free to drop in and out whenever.

    What do I do if I want to join in?
    Just post in this thread or PM @Ansible for an invite link to the discord server. If you're not on discord, feel free to let us know and we can keep you in the loop via PM.

    Sounds good, I added you to the group PM. We don't have a day and time set for private battles this week yet, but we'll probably play on Saturday night if that works for you.

    Cool, I added you to the group PM. That's usually where we talk about when we'll be doing private battles and other stuff.

    It's totally fine if you're not a pro. I mean, I'm definitely not one. Plus, I try to balance the teams based on rank and apparent skill level/experience so things can be fair and everyone can have fun.

    I added you to the group PM. The plan is do some private battles starting at 7:00 p.m. (eastern/UTC -5) on Saturday. If that doesn't work for you, feel free to let me know and we can try to work something out. There are enough people in the group now that we can probably do private battles more than once a week, so if you're someone who has more free time in the afternoons than in the evenings or who lives in a different time zone, we should still be able to accommodate you.

    Sure thing, I just added you. I'm actually about to make a private battle lobby if you want to join in.

    Wouldn't mind me joining would you? I'm currently S rank but I'm about to rank down because these people are too good for my skill level I think, but I'd love to practice with you guys!

    I can't play splatoon until the 16th due to exams, but I'll drop my nnid and come back when I'm ready. NNID: Minty_Blaziken. I was also wondering if it would be possible to set up a discord group alongside PMs since people could use VC as well as have faster messaging.

    I wish to join in as well, Babycowland. I am...kind of lonely to keep seeing myself pitting against Japanese players. And even though I want to ask them to be Inkpals, we won't understand each other.

    I like Private Battles of any kind; at least something to take off my rage in losing my S Rank. But I can get back to that rank eventually. Mine is GMT+8, so I am 14 hours ahead of you. Usually I play on Sunday, so if I play in the morning, I can catch you guys online.

    I have Skype. I can send you a private message of my Skype name if you accept me to join in and have fun. My NNID is sallyeah, well same as my username in this forum for easy identification, haha.

    You're more than welcome to play with us. FYI, I just added you, so look out for a friend request from BabycowLD.

    I don't like voicechat either, so you'll definitely never be required to do any of that while you're playing with us. I sent you a friend invite.

    That's okay. How does Sunday afternoon work for you? We have enough members where we could probably do two private battle sessions a week, one on Saturday night and one on Sunday afternoon or something. Either way, I think we should be able to work something out.

    I'm not very experienced with discord, but I went ahead and set up a discord group. It's going to be text chat only. If you would like to join, feel free to PM me. Also, if anyone has any tips for how to use discord effectively for this stuff, I'd be happy to hear them, since I'm pretty clueless with it, haha.

    Oh yeah, I just sent you a friend invite too.

    Not having friends to play with isn't very fun, yeah... I've definitely been there before. Anywho, I'd be more than happy to play with you. Time zones can be a bit tricky, but I think we totally should be able to accommodate you. I sent you a friend invite just now.

    Hey, I'd be interested in playing with you guys sometime. Gets me away from the matchmaking grind all the time :p
    I'd also be interested in joining your Discord, if that's okay

    I added your NNID just now. I also sent you a PM with the discord link, so be on the look out for that.

    Sure thing, I sent you a friend invite. Would you like to be added to the discord group as well?
