Is your calamari team ready?
The company announced today that Gfinity will host an upcoming Splatoon 2 tournament with Nintendo.
Known as The Splatoon Inkfest UK Tournament 2021, the competition will be open to players in the UK and Ireland. The tournament, which is actually a collection of smaller tournaments, will run from September 25 to December 11. All matches will be played online, so players will not need to report to a physical location. Players can register their teams on the registration portal and start climbing the ladder when the tournament opens this week.
The tournament will be played in a cup style and matches will be held every three weeks. Each cup series will have open ladder tournaments on the weekend, during which teams can play as many matches as they want to improve their overall standings and advance to the cup final. Gfinity said there will be prizes for the winners of each trophy, but did not say exactly what those prizes were.
Between matches, players will be able to find news, content and interviews in the tournament centre, which will also serve as the tournament's ranking board. “The tournament structure is designed to be highly competitive and fun, and we are excited to help bring the competition to players and fans alike,” said John Clarke, CEO of Gfinity.
