Squidstorm 2016 (SS2016) was a Splatoon LAN tournament held on July 30th-31st, 2016.[1] It was the first western Splatoon LAN major.

History

The Squidstorm emblem.

Originally going under the codename Project SQUIDFEST, plans for a Splatoon LAN major were already in the works by the EndGameTV staff as early as the winter of 2015.[2] Squidstorm 2016 was officially announced on May 28th, 2016,[3][4] being supported by communities and organizations such as Nintendo of America, smashgg, Squidboards, among many others,[5][6][7] while also receiving support from Nintendo of America's Senior Product Marketing Manager, Bill Trinen.[8][9]

In order to support the traveling fees for a handful of players attending the event, EndGameTV held a 24-hour streamathon on June 11th, 2016.[10] An official online shop was also later opened to further allow support for the event.[11][12]
