Join the Splatoon 2 Turf War May 2022 (May 21)!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - I don't have much commentary, but I like that it's happening.

There probably isn't enough content here for its own article. But I did want to document this.

Nintendo of America is once again teaming up with eSports platform Battlefy to bring a new competitively minded Splatoon 2 event... the Splatoon 2 Turf War May 2022! Taking place this Saturday (May 21, 2022) at 13:00 Eastern. Register here.

Also, this is as-of-yet unused artwork for these official Splatoon 2 tournaments.

The ruleset for this tournament is the exact same as the Splatoon 2 Turf War February 2022, which I've already explained in another article. The entire event is a four-hour ladder on the Battlefy platform. You matchmake with your team (you need to register with a full team of four to five members [allowing for an alternate] before the event begins) throughout the four hours whenever you feel like it on the Battlefy platform and report scores on it, which could be constantly or maybe you want to allow for minor breaks. The top four teams by the end of the period get some kind of prize, with placing determined by match wins minus match losses. One match is a best-of-3 against another team. Every game is Turf War. Stages are set to random. No Splatfest Tees allowed, but feel free to use any other gear and weaponry.

Third and fourth place get $50 in My Nintendo Gold Points plus a Nintendo Switch Carrying Case. Second place gets $75 in My Nintendo Gold Points and the Nintendo Switch Carrying Case. But the Grand Prize winners (everyone on the team) gets $100 in My Nintendo Gold Points, the Nintendo Switch Carrying Case, a backpack, a Splatoon 2 jacket, and a Splatoon 2 Turf War May 2022 Trophy!

I'm told that everyone (who filled out their prize paperwork) except the most recent official Nintendo event participants have been awarded their prizes by now. That's good, because there's been complaints about that in the past. Personally, I'm happy that the competitive event output in this first half of 2022 is basically equal to the entirety of Nintendo's competitive event output for the whole of 2021. It's a good trend!

Ludwig hasn't joined a team and he's not sure how interested he is in doing so. He's X-ranked in every ranked battle mode (not that it matters) but he's not actually good at competitive Splatoon, since the majority of his time with the game is just Salmon Run, and the skills in that don't come close to the skills required to be successful against other Inklings or Octolings. He really wrote this article because a Battlefy employee told him this tournament was happening, and he felt compelled to write something about it.

There's a new sponsored tournament series happening through July 2022! Check out the Inkopolis Showdown 2022!
There's another Turf War coming—the Splatoon 3 Turf War December 2022, on December 30!
