    One thing I've learned after a while is, if you don't have a lot of ink behind you to bail, don't go out too far on your own cause you'll need time to escape an ambush. If you use dualies, you have more of an advantage to make your way into enemy territory.

    Honestly? Just treat it like a regular Truf War. The only real difference will be the mode you choose.

    Normal Mode you can either go solo or queue up with 3 others. At the end both teams will receive clot for their Splatfest team regardless who wins.

    Pro Mode you can only do solo and after you do your 7 placements it will find people around the same skill level as you. Unlike Normal mode the losing team will not receive any clot.

    Personally I prefer Pro mode just because it feels more balanced in terms of skill. I've been against some 4 stacks in Normal and it was a massacre.

    Stake out the Shifty Station in advance using the recon tool... find all the good perch points, strategic walls, etc. Get used to the "gimmick of the month" and how it works for you.

    Play a LOT of Turf War...strategies are far different for Turf War than they are in ranked or league. Even then, competition is FAR harder in Splatfest than in regular Turf War, especially if you play in a Japan-only Splatfest.

    If you have a weapon with a fast fire rate, prepare to be a "tank".....find the best places to shoot your ink and don't worry as much about splatting other squids/octos. if you cover up a significant amount of their ink deep in their territory, you will get the bulk of the aggro, and it will keep their minds off *your* base for a while.

    Also...COVER YOUR HOME BASE as much as possible. I have seen many many Turf War matches won by who had the better inked home base.
