Seriously, Polaris is the best Salmon Run map by a wide margin.

When they said it was an even match, they weren't kidding.

I made Waffle King during the Splatfest, went back to Pro mode after doing Normal for the last few after they introduced it. I had... a much less aggravating time for some reason? Not sure if I was just having a string of bad luck that finally broke, or Pro vs Normal mode is what made the difference. I'll try Pro again next time and we'll see how it goes, I guess.

Man I swear that my likelihood of winning these things is inversely proportional to how well I do. I did terribly this time around, and still ended up winning.

That said, I was on Pro mode most of the time, and when I switched to normal at the end I did a lot better. tongue

Lately, my play pattern for Splatfests has been to play in Pro Mode until I reach King rank, then play in Normal mode with whatever free time I have left over.

Usually, the way Splatfests go for me is that, if I'm getting my butt kicked in my early matches I'll make up that ground late in the day and roughly break even, or vice versa.

As for being on the winning teams, my record was abysmal under the "Solo & Team Wins" system, but my luck took a turn for the better under the "Normal & Pro Clout" system.

I wonder if they'll ever confirm if they're an item. At this point these two can't be anything less than extremely close friends. The only thing missing in order to say they're romantically involved for sure is someone to say it outright.

Yup, definitely looks like something a child made and then a pro artist had to make presentable. Which is fair, I guess, but.

[up](x5) Are Marina and Pearl close in the Japanese version of the games? From what I've heard, they're more distant or at least (slightly) more professional in the original version.

So it appears that by "won" they mean "drew out of a hat."

Because I seriously can't imagine them actually looking at the designs and going "yeah, that's the one."

[up][up][up]Then they needed to solicit more entries because come on.

It's just... the main thing that weirds me out about it is that it doesn't seem to have any single coherent theme or concept behind it. It's a mishmash of "cool" elements (spikes everywhere, tactical helmet, pouches out the wazoo, wrist computer, little canister things on the shoes, whatever the heck those things on the legs are supposed to be) and then coated in a color scheme that doesn't match that aesthetic at all. Red and black is a horribly overused "edgy" palette, but at least that would fit the "I can pop balloons just by looking at them" thing it has going.

Every other costume they've released has some sort of specific thing that it's meant to represent, whereas this doesn't, unless it's a shoutout to some uniquely Japanese cultural thing that they'd recognized and I don't.

That said, I actually don't dislike it. It's bizarre, but Splatoon is already a pretty inherently goofy franchise, and a little more silliness fits right in. I'm just at a loss as to what thought process led to this costume being picked as the winner.

Well, the outfit can look edgier but I know how to fix it...

I have seen children design better stuff than that. I am not sure if this design was actually made by a kid with weird edgy tastes or someone older with weird edgy tastes.
