Splatsgiving: Bleck Friday!, also known as BnS Weekly #10, was a Splatoon online tournament held on November 25th, 2016.[1] The tournament was unique in that it featured a set of restrictions in Gear Ability and Special Weapons. The tournament also featured one of the largest pot ever in a Splatoon online tournament, with over $950 in prizes.

It was the tenth tournament in the BnS tournament series.

History

For its tenth entry, and by also coincidentally occurring during the Thanksgiving Weekend, the BnS staff decided to introduce prizes and giveaways for both participating teams and the viewer audience. To achieve such, they partnered with freelance artists in the western Splatoon community,[2][3][4][5][6] Etsy shop owners,[7] and by doing a donation incentive during the stream of the BnS Weekly #9 tournament, which resulted in over $800 in donations.[8]

The tournament had a set of restrictions in team compositions by banning the Quick Respawn gear ability and by limiting the amount of invincibility Special Weapons a team can run to one Bubbler and one Kraken only.

The second stage was a single-elimination bracket. All matches in this stage were played on a Best-of-7 games format.
