Splatoon 2’s Labor Day Weekend Splatstravaganza!!!

Last night was SO. MUCH. FUN!


For the past week I had been trying to gather up a bunch of friends for a few hours of dedicated, private, Splatoon 2 gaming, complete with us all chatting it up on Discord. Sorry Nintendo, but we didn’t even try to use your app. What came of this evening was that nine of us, over roughly four hours, played 31 matches of Splatoon awesomeness. The modes would change, in order, every two matches. The stages were always randomized. Not everyone started playing originally and not all made it through the end. In fact, only four of us played the last third or so of matches. I’ll tell you, playing a 2v2 in the different modes is a fun, rewarding, and very challenging experience. You have to change your strategies up a lot. With less people supporting your cause, teams need to work even harder to get things accomplished. At the same time, there may also be a little more reprieve from the harsher elements.

As many who know me understand, I really enjoy seeing how things go in Splatoon 2 from a stats perspective. I use a tracking sheet I made up back in the Splatoon (Wii U) days which helps me see how I do in each of the monthly Splatfest events. Well, I couldn’t apply that form here but I did make another one. I used the Nintendo Switch Online App to log all the different matches that took place and I just completed the analysis moments ago. It took a lot of time… more than I really imagined. Luckily though, it was all there for the reading. The only things that skew some of my numbers is that during the two matches I spectated in (when we had an odd number of players), I do NOT have the ‘Death’ data for each character since it doesn’t log the matches when I’m not playing in them. That’s a bit of a bummer, but not a big deal either way. I was able to nab the other data related to those two matches by taking a screenshot on the Switch (and my phone for a backup). Without further ado, here are the general stats I can calculate (and that I find relevant) from the time spent last night. First you’ll see the general stats about all of us and the night, then a few player-specific stats I also calculated for my curious friends.

  1. Total Turf Inked does NOT include any 1,000 point Win Bonuses. These are pure turf coverage numbers.
  2. Best Mode* was calculated by how many wins a person had by mode. In the case of ties, how well they ranked on those winning teams was put into consideration.
  3. Worst Mode** was calculated by how many losses a person had by mode. Any ties also looked at the ranking but in the opposite direction.

Thanks again for everyone who played! Let’s do it again some time! I’ll tell you what though… I don’t expect to analyze like this next time, lol. I could have been playing this whole time! Come to think of it… *runs to his Nintendo Switch*
