Wooooow. So that's how it is, huh?
Splatfest -- the event where Splatoon asks players to pick between two sides and duke it out against one another -- is happening this weekend, and some of the trash talking I've seen in the Miiverse plaza is FIERCE, as evidenced by this screenshot taken by Brittany Rolstad. Honestly, I haven't seen people get this riled up about a Splatfest since maybe the first one, Cats vs Dogs. Kind of makes sense, given that people already have strong opinions about art and science.
I mean, look at this comic by gitgudnami.
It's potshots galore right now in Splatoon, for real.
I'll say one thing. I have not picked sides yet, but I do know that people keep making fun of Team Science for embarrassing spelling errors.
I'm not trying to be mean; even Team Science acknowledges it:
It's all in good fun though. That's the beauty of Splatoon. Even when we're tearing each other apart, we still come together when it matters most: makin' a giant fuckin' mess on the battlefield. Together.
