The results for the latest Splatfest for Splatoon 2 are in and it looks like mayo caught up to ketchup.
Splatfest is where players decide to be on one of two teams and then battle it out with each other in Turf War matches. For this Splatfest, players had to choose which condiment is superior: mayo or ketchup. People on the winning side earn slightly more Super Sea Snails which are used to add new ability slots to gear or replace an ability and earn you the old ability chunk.
Team Mayo and Team Ketchup were first judged on popularity, or who had the most people sign up for their team. Team Ketchup had the most votes with 73 percent of Splatfest players signing up for the team.
The two teams were then judged on who had the most wins. The wins were divided up between solo matches, where individual players were put into teams; and team matches, where friends got together as groups and fought each other. Team Mayo earned the most wins for both solo matches and team matches with 52 percent and 51 percent of wins respectively.
Despite being crushed in the popularity contest, Team Mayo came out on top thanks to them earning the most wins in matches.
Team Mayo was also the winner for the Splatfest in Japan, according to Twinfinite. Team Mayo won for both popularity and solo matches with 56 percent of votes and 51 percent of wins. However, Team Ketchup won team matches with 51 percent of wins.
Ice cream beat cake in the very first Splatfest with the game’s Global Premiere Demo in July. Team Ice Cream had more popularity and solo match wins than Team Cake with 76 percent of votes and 51 percent of wins. However, Team Cake had more team match wins with 53 percent of wins.
