The outcomes of Splatoon 3’s first Tricolor Turf War are in: Rock took first place, Paper got here in second, and Scissors completed final. The Splatfest demo was an opportunity for gamers to check out the brand new three-sided game mode, however the outcomes are blended.

It’s essential to know how Tricolor Turf War works first. It options three groups, but it surely isn’t the 4v4v4 that you may think. Instead, it’s 4v2v2, where the workforce at present in first place within the Splatfest has 4 gamers positioned in the midst of the map, whereas two members representing the opposite groups assault from either side. This setup works properly sufficient, however there have been many complaints about it feeling unbalanced.

These complaints will be discovered throughout a number of web sites. One GameFAQs poster brings up the problem of tenting from the four-player workforce, and replies to Nintendo’s personal Splatfest winner tweet consist of comparable complaints and steadiness solutions. Most of those posts will be discovered on Reddit, as you may count on. There are loads of memes about the way it felt to play the primary Tricolor Turf War, with specific empathy for Team Scissors and its trailing third-place end.

The extra you take a look at the varied memes, the extra it appears that almost everybody has one thing to say in regards to the steadiness of Tricolor Turf War. It’s pure to listen to complaints about equity from the dropping groups in any circumstance, however the abundance of those posts recommend that there actually is an imbalance that Nintendo ought to take a look at earlier than the subsequent Splatfest is held. At least we received extra Deep Cut fanart out of the primary one.

At the very least, Nintendo must look into the problem of cheaters in Splatoon 3. Some savvy gamers took the Splatfest demo as a chance to mod the game and check out options that weren’t meant to be seen but. Nintendo has issued console bans because of this — that’s properly inside its rights. In any case, Splatoon 3 will see a full launch on Switch quickly. Its launch date is Friday, September 9.
