The final Splatoon Splatfest ended with Team Marie victorious, with plenty of players taking off their team t-shirts, collecting their winnings and no doubt letting out a disappointed sigh. After more than a year of regular updates and Splatfests, the Wii U's colourful shooter is about to settle down and conclude its evolution.
For those that still want more Super Sea Snails, the currency that is vital for improving and changing up gear, the end of Splatfests is a problem. Yet the acquisition of these critters isn't yet done, even if they'll be harder to gather in significant numbers.
Picking up on a comment on the game's Japanese Twitter account, users on Reddit have figured out that Judd is dishing out snails in exchange for online wins. It seems that accumulating 30 wins (over multiple sessions if needed) in Ranked or Turf Wars and then speaking to Judd will yield one snail.
It's a steep asking price, though the gold accumulated in that many matches can also go a long way towards gear enhancements, so it certainly makes sense. It's not the mass of goodies received for Splatfest success, but it's better than nothing.
Are you still an active Splatoon player that can take advantage of this? Let us know.
It should be said too that Turf War is giving out significantly more money for a win now too. Ranked might be as well...not sure?
@9th_Sage I haven't heard anything about Ranked, and the official account only mentioned Regular, but yes, it's certainly worth noting!
To give specific numbers, I think the bonus from a victory in Turf War has increased from 300p to 1000p. Which is pretty sizeable.
Hey can't you buy Sea Snails from Spyke for like $25K a pop?
I will still be splitting it up all the time 😀
I wonder whether Spyke will be alright now that snails are harder to get.
Getting the correct item abilities still seems very tricky. I would have liked to see them somehow make rolling abilities easier.
@bluedogrulez Actually it's $30k. That's why it's nice that the win bonus for Turf Wars has increased, it'll make getting that easier especially if you manage to build up a decent multiplier by winning consecutive Turf Wars.
Now with Splatfests finished,they should add the nighttime stages to all modes.I've always thought the graphics look better at night.
@OorWullie i know, it would be amazing but, i think that won't be a thing tell Splatoon 2.
I actually haven't played Splatoon in quite some time now. I might need to start up again and collect some snails for myself.
I have such a massive stash of cash that it is pretty irrelevant to me, but at least sea snails are not completely dead now that Splatfest is done with.
Too bad they didn't implement a way to play the stages in night mode... Unless you hack your Wii U, it appears we will never be able to play in night mode ever again.
Plus, Turf War now gives out 1,000 rather than 300 points when you win, so, if you just played that and won nearly all of 30 matches, you would get 2 Super Sea Snails for the price of one since you would have 30,000 (30 times 1,000), enough to buy a Snail from Spyke.
"It's not the mass of goodies received for Splatfest success, but it's better than nothing."
Inafune put you up to saying that, didn't he?
I have nearly 5 million gold and Sea Snails from last year. I don't really use either much. Happy with the Gear and Weapons I have.
All the top players just hack to edit their gear now anyway.
Never participated in a single splatfest.
Dang you, college life, limiting my playtime. I'll live though. Splatoon 2 will undoubtedly appease that.
After playing the Splatfest with 3 maps, it begs the question, "WHY CAN'T IT ALWAYS BE LIKE THAT?!?!" 3 maps is so much more fun than just 2, and it would get me playing a lot more. With only 2 maps, if I don't like one of them, I just don't play Splatoon. But 3 maps alleviates that. It just frustrates me how they are like, "NO, you only get 2 game modes and 2 maps at a time!" When other online shooters offer all maps and all game modes simultaneously, why doesn't Splatoon follow suit. And don't say it's because we can't change weapons between games, because other online shooters have that feature. It just seems like there are fundamental "WHY U DO DIS NINTENDO?!?" moments in Splatoon that just serve no purpose.
Honestly I'm surprised anyone is treating Splatoon in a 'do you still play it' way. I play it at least once a week when I'm busy, more like once every other day, and some days when I have nothing to do (summer holidays) I'll play it for a couple of hours each time I pick it up and I'll pick it up like three times a day. Splatoon is one of my favourite games ever, and I still have to get something approaching the equivalent of seventy sea snails to meet my goal with the game.
I love Splatoon, really I do, but I don't play it that much. The main thing that kept dragging me back into it were the Splatfests. I liked the short-term goal of winning enough to get to king/queen status. Now without any clear goals aside from the massive undertaking that is level 50 or S+ rank I don't really feel that motivated to keep playing. I might come back to it once in a while, but let me know if this tells you anything: I still haven't gone in to collect my snails from The Last Splatfest.
I'm pretty happy with my gear and I have over 2000000 gold, but I will still pick up the odd sea snail from judd
Absolutely loving Splatoon since coming back to it for the last Splatfest. Definitely taking advantage of this! Also levelling up like nobody's business thanks to the exp boost. Hell yeah.
@9th_Sage : Thanks. I did a quick internet search and could not find it. But now I know I'm not crazy . . . just have a problem counting, lol.
That’s nice, I was wondering what will happen to Sea Snail gathering ever since they announced that this would be the last Splatfest.
I used to be an active player that played every day or every 2 days, now I only play one a month. It’s still one of the best online multiplayer games I ever played, even if Turf War is the only mode I ever played, but new games and backlog calls with an unlimited plan.
@Mr_Pringles I can't believe anyone has bothered hacking slots... What's the point? A good player will always beat a bad player, it doesn't matter what they have in their loadout.
