The first Splatoon 2 Splatfest results recently found that Team Mayo triumphed over Team Ketchup. However, a number of participants are claiming that the latest Splatfest was rigged due to there being a greater majority of ketchup fans in the game. This resulted in a number of matches of players on the same team, which don’t appear to count toward the final tally of wins. The following explanation comes from a member of Team Ketchup:
You’ll note that ketchup (73%) kicked mayo’s ass (27%) when it came to votes. Not surprising, really, when you consider that Marina the Octoling was on team ketchup, and everyone loves Marina. The thing is, Marina was so popular that many ketchup players just ended up facing themselves. There were literally not enough mayo players to go around. I participated in Splatfest all day yesterday, and barely ever got into matches against mayo. Instead, I’d estimate that 85% of my matches were against fellow ketchup-ers.
