USA Jackpot

A rising force in the western competitive Splatoon scene since its genesis, Jackpot has been on a meteoric ascent following the Splatoon 3 North American Championship 2023. It won the InkTV Resurgence League in May in dominating fashion, defeating its fellow Western giants Crush Soda, Starburst, and Alliance Rogue while losing only two games. Suddenly touted as the best of the West, it was also selected as one of four Western teams to qualify for the Splat World Championship.[7] It would continue its dominant streak over Western competition by winning its first fourteen consecutive matches and 30 out of 31 games in the first qualifier event of the Splatoon 3 Championship 2023, North America's championship tournament. Even after losing to Starburst 3-2 and dropping down to the Losers Semifinal, Jackpot would defeat Duck Gang 3-1 and Last Resort to punch its ticket to the Splatoon 3 Championship 2023.[8][9]

After qualifying, Jackpot remained very busy in the competitive scene, getting second in Splatamax #2[10] and third in Area Cup #2[11] and winning In The Zone 29,[12] Mode Cup #3,[13] Mode Cup: Clam Blitz Edition,[14] and Golden Squid Junction.[15] It also reached the Top 4 in the Summer 2023 edition of the Splat World Championship.[16][17] The extra competitive participation paid off, as Jackpot would sweep Duck Gang 3-0 and defeat Crush Soda 4-2 to win the Splatoon 3 Championship 2023 to punch its ticket to Tokyo.[18][19]

Germany KaiZer

Like all teams vying for the European championship, KaiZer consists of top European competitive players of one country or region, including ZerraZ (a former member of FreeZe and last seen on Graveyard Shift, which competed in the InkTV Resurgence League the previous April) and Majin (a former member of BackSquids, the runner-up of the Splatoon 2 World Championship 2018). It began its campaign by qualifying for the German regional championship of the Splatoon 3 European Championship by winning the third qualifier on 22 July 2023, sweeping all five teams it faced. During the German regional championship, it swept Energie Kopfnuss 2-0 in the quarterfinal, defeated Black Lotus 3-1 in the semifinal, and outlasted Haarige Hinterländler in a competitve 3-2 final, becoming the German representative for the Splatoon 3 European Championship 2023.[20]

In the European Championship, KaiZer dominated its three-team group by sweeping both Poland Hydrovsky and Spain Zenith 3-0, earning a spot in the semifinal round against defending European champion France Alliance Rogue. After losing the best-of-three Turf War series 2-0 (which counted as one win in the best-of-five semifinal series), KaiZer would win three of the next four (including a come-from-behind, overtime Game 5 win) to advance to the final against Switzerland Golden Ratio. Once again, KaiZer would lose the Turf War series – this time 2-1 – but would win the next four games to win the series 4-1 and earn its trip to Tokyo as the European representative for the World Championship.[21][22]

Australia Greasy Goblins

Headlined by two-time Australia/New Zealand champion Latias (previously on Blue Ringed Octolings and Yeah Nah), Greasy Goblins entered the first qualifiers for the Splatoon 3 AU/NZ Championship on 18 August 2023 and defeated their first four opponents with relative ease. They finally faced some resistance against Great Question before winning three games to one, then they swept surveycake 3-0 to earn one of two spots in the Grand Final at PAX Australia 2023 in Melbourne on 8 October 2023.[24] There, they faced Solstice, which featured three members of the 2019 Australia/New Zealand champion Lime Soda: Geo, Jack and ShockWavee. Greasy Goblins lost the best-of-three Turf War series 2-0 (which counted as one win in the best-of-five Grand Final) but rebounded to win two consecutive Anarchy Battles to go up 2-1. However, Solstice won Game 4 to force a deciding Game 5, in which Greasy Goblins won to claim its spot in the World Championship.[25][26]
