Winner Sweet

Spicy vs. Sweet vs. Sour was a Splatfest event in Splatoon 3. It was the first Splatfest held during Chill Season 2022. It was announced on social networks on 16 December 2022 and in-game on 30 December 2022 at 08:00 UTC.

Details

This Splatfest was the first to feature the revamped Tricolor Battle matchmaking system. This meant that the mode was no longer locked for the team leading at halftime, instead allowing a duo from any team to join the queue. The roles (Attackers and Defenders) are chosen randomly, but if the leading team wins as a defender or a non-leading team wins as an attacker, they receive a ×1.5 bonus in their Clout.

It was also the first Splatfest to feature the option to take commemorative photos atop a Splatfest Float to celebrate after the player wins a 100x or 333x Battle. These photos can be taken by interacting with the pledge box.

The stage for Tricolor Turf War was Undertow Spillway.

Schedule

This Splatfest event ran in multiple phases:

Results were announced in game on 9 January 2023 at 02:00 UTC.

Halftime Report

At the halfway point in the Splatfest, Deep Cut revealed the team currently with the most overall Clout, and congruently announced that the mode Tricolor Turf War would be open.

“Wat een toeval, ik dacht net aan eten! Nou ja... Zo zeldzaam is dat ook weer niet...”

(What a coincidence, I was just thinking about food! Well... It's not that rare...)
Haya

“Laten we ons eens vastbijten in de teams. Ten eerste: Pittig. Tot je tong in de brand staat!”

(Let's study the teams more thoroughly. First of all: Spicy. Until your tongue is on fire!)

“Weet je wat beter smaakt dan pijn? Geen pijn. Zoet doet goed!”

(You know what tastes better than pain? No pain. Sweet does good!)

“Pft. Nou, ik kan je geruststellen: daar blijf ik voortaan van af. Mijn neus prikt er nog van!”

Haya
Shiver Expression Talk Smirk.png

“Dat is er juist zo lekker aan! Ik kan geen genoeg krijgen van hoe pittig ze zijn.”

(That's just what's so delicious about them! I can't get enough of how spicy they are.)

Haya
Shiver Expression Talk.png

“Maar ik snap dat een zoetekauw als jij daar niet tegen kan. Jouw suikerkoffie alleen al!”

(But I understand that a sweet tooth like you can't stand that. Your sugar coffee alone!)


Muriël
Frye Expression Wait.png

“Wat is er mis met mijn koffie superverkeerd? Met suiker, koffie, suiker, melk en een zoetje!”

(What's wrong with my café super wrong way round? With sugar, coffee, sugar, milk and a sweetener!)
Notes: Koffie verkeerd is Dutch for "café au lait", or more literally; "coffee the wrong way round". Frye adds the prefix super- to intensify how "wrong way round" her coffee is.
Haya
“Je zou eigenlijk elke morgen sorry moeten zeggen voor wat je je koffie aandoet.”

(You should actually be saying sorry every morning for what you put your coffee through.)

Ray
Big Man Expression Happy.png

“Ay! (Wacht maar, team Zuur zal jullie inmaken zoals die heerlijke augurken!)”

(Ay! (Just wait, team Sour will trounce you like those delicious gherkins!))
Notes: The verb inmaken means both "to trounce" and "to preserve [food]", like how Big Man's team will trounce the competition and pickle "those delicious gherkins".
Haya

“Met genoeg kimchi en chilipepers hoef team Pittig daar gelukkig niks van te proeven!”

(With enough kimchi and chili peppers, team Spicy fortunately doesn't have to taste any of that!)


Muriël

“Wachten jullie maar, er smaakt niks zo zoet als de overwinning van team Zoet!”

(Just you folks wait, nothing tastes as sweet as team Sweet's victory!)

“Ay! Ay! (Mijn team gaat jullie het leven zuur maken! En dat vinden we nog lekker ook!)”

(Ay! Ay! (My team is going to make your lives miserable! And we'll like the taste of that too!))
Notes: Het leven zuur maken is an idiom for "to make [someone's] life miserable", or more literally; "make life sour" which is why Big Man's team will like the taste of it.

“Het enige dat pittig gaat worden, is mijn volgende bezoek aan de tandarts...”

(The only thing that's going to be serious is my next visit to the dentist...)

Notes: Pittig both means "spicy" and "serious and difficult".

Trivia

  • This was the first Splatfest won by the team representing Frye.
  • This was the first Splatfest where all three teams scored points in a category.
  • In the Splatfest announcement dialogue, Big Man says: "Ay! Ay! (Power rhymes with sour, and sour is the best of all! Like...pickled plums!)". This could be a reference to the Splatoon manga in which the main character, Goggles, is often seen eating pickled plums.
    • Additionally, during the ending dialogue, Frye mentions that the "all-you-can-sweet buffet" serves pickled plums.
  • A visual bug would occur when boarding a Splatfest Float after winning a 100x or a 333x Battle if any Octolings where part of the winning team, wherein the Octoling's eyes and ears would appear as an Inkling's. This bug persisted into the next Splatfest event, then was patched out in version 3.0.0.
  • This was the first Splatfest during which Big Man's team was not winning during halftime.
  • This was the first Splatfest to feature pastel colors- with the past 3 (including the testfire) only ever using vibrant primary and secondary colors.
