Splatoon Stronghold is a project to create a "Stronghold for competitive Splatoon providing resources to longtimers and newcomers alike"[1]. Stronghold has released an announcement video for the project explaining what it was and why.[2]

The project utilises a Discord server for interaction, a Google document for sharing, and a website for searching.

Project History

Splatoon Stronghold Project Roadmap.jpg

Inspired by a lack of accessibility to resources in the competitive scene, the founder of the project spoke with other players about their competitive journeys and how they learned information (nearly all of that information being learnt by experience and not through resources)[Citation needed].

The project went public on April 12th 2022[3], with the Discord server announced on April 26th and released publicly on May 28th to celebrate Splatoon's 7 year anniversary.[4] On June 9th, the Discord server became available on Discord's Server Discovery feature. [5]

The project's roadmap was released alongside the guide and handbook after, on June 18th and July 21st respectively. [6]

On June 18th, 2022, the project's second part in its three-phase plan was released with the announcement of the Splatoon Esports Guidebook[7].

The project's website launced July 21st, 2022 to celebrate Splatoon 2's anniversary. [8]
