Mayo Wins Splatoon 2 Splatfest In The U.S.

The results are now in for the Mayo Vs. Ketchup Splatoon 2 Splatfest that’s just wrapped up in the U.S. and Mayo has once again taken the crown. You can check out the results below thanks to the screenshot grabbed by @PacmanAndRobin on Twitter. Japan also saw a Mayo victory when the exciting event finished in the territory earlier yesterday.

Now we’re just waiting for the European Splatfest results! Europe has until 3pm BST to ink for their chosen team.

      1. Yeah darn those servers only causing issues for Team Ketchup. Of course I was Mayo and didn’t experience a single issue in game (connection issues going back into lobby sure, but not anything in game), so maybe you’re on to something. Nintendo stacked the deck!

  2. So, what this tells me is that if a mere 27% of participants were able to achieve an average 51.5% of the score vs an average 48.5% from the remaining 73%…………

    ………….all the best players picked Mayo!!! ;-)

    Haha! I knew with our egg and oil slickness, we’d cream those tomato sugar suckers!!! Team Mayo, baby! Yeah!! :-D

    In all seriousness, though, it was a WONDERFUL time playing a wonderful variant on a wonderful game with wonderful people!

    And in truth, I very nearly missed it! I had been so wrapped up in Miitopia that I had forgotten all about it til I saw a post on Google+ while attending to some podcast stuff. I only got in on it for the final three hours more or less.

    Anyway, go team Mayo! And even if I have to go out of my way to do so, I will find some kind of morsel that will accommodate a little Mayo that I can have today to celebrate! :-)

    Cheers!

    1. It doesn’t work like that. When they calculate the win rate, they normalize both sides so that the popularity doesn’t count. So no, the 51.5% were not gained only by those 27% participants (it is almost impossible), it was just a win rate among all the mayo voters. The way it works, even if the popularity was 5% to 95%, the smaller group could still have a better win rate, because the popularity is normalized in win score.

      1. Actually, I figured that it was adjusted – hence the winking icon next to the statement followed by the line “In all seriousness, though”. It was, as they say in the business, a joke! :-)

        Either way, it was a fun time, and I’m glad that “the good guys” won! :-)

  3. So I don’t eat either, but I bet you Ketchup dominated in the younger demographic and adults tended more towards mayo. That would explain the win rate vs popularity.
