    Picking Octoling, they have already been through too much.

    All of this is wrong. It's squid vs octopus, and I am choosing team OCTOPUS because OCTOPUSES (not octopi) are cooler than squids.

    I had originally planned to rep Octopus as an inkling, but since you gotta switch forms I'm gonna back squids.

    Inkling......as adorable as the octolings are, inklings are the originals and have better callouts.

    Let me think a bit. People have been clamoring for Octolings since, what what it, August of 2015? And they only got louder after S2 came out featuring an Octoling as a semi-important (at the time) NPC? And then we got the DLC, which not only has probably the best single-player mode and story this series has seen yet, but also finally gave us/them not just playable Octolings, but playable Octobois as well?

    No quick maths required here. There is absolutely no way Team Octo is getting sub-60% in popularity. Hell, they'll have enough of a man Octoling advantage that I wouldn't be surprised if that alone allows them to get at least one win category.

    As for which team I pick... well, I'd like to win, and I'm a natural contrarian, so I'm wont to side with Team Squid on that alone. It means giving up the sweet afro I have currently, but eh. Ya make do.

    Although, the "worldwide" bit concerns me. Granted, I am certain that Nintendo's servers can handle it, but all the same...

    Wasn't there a JP Splatfest where popularity AND wins won?

    A bit late, but I did a little diggin' and yeah, there's actually been a few Splatfests where one team got completely BTFO in all categories. Dunno if it'll happen to this one, but I have a feeling the odds of that are slightly higher than normal.

    How does having a big chunk of players more allows you to get more wins?
    Did they ever state the matches are going to be worldwide? I think it's just the theme and maybe the results.

    So, let me tell you, Team Octopus, you didn't buy Splatoon or Splatoon 2 to play as an Octoling, did you? So why are you choosing to be on their team? I bought the game to play as a squid, so that's who I shall pick.

    That's because they went through too much, being forced to be hypnotized over and over again is just the worst. Which is why I prefer they stay above ground forever.

    I'm choosing team octopus because species is only a cosmetic in this game, but in real life octopuses are way cooler than squids.

    What does that have to do with anything?
    I didn't buy the game to play the Explosher. Doesn't mean I'm not gonna play the Explosher when it comes out.

    I just love subtle racism.

    I'm probably going to go with team squid, as I still prefer the OG inkling girl to any of the new hair types, and that is the core of this game; looking fresh. I do also have to say that I have eaten squid before and enjoyed it, while I have never tried octopus.

    Well, Octolings actually needed to become a very common occurrence in the game anyway and I prefer that it stays that way. Team Octo all the way!

    Gee, since when was choosing to demo something cosmetic such a wrong thing?
