Vibe is a indicator of the winning streaks of players in online battles, shown in both the Battle Lobby and the waiting room before a match. On the Vibe Meter is a title and a number of flags. Winning battles adds one flag and, conversely, losses deduct flags depending on the Meter's current level.
Speaking to Judd in Inkopolis Plaza will reward the player with Cash based on their Vibe. Since it resets when the stages change, rewards will be lost if the player does not collect them within the stage cycle in which they played.
During a Splatfest, Vibe is replaced by Splatfest Power. Prior to Version 2.6.0, Vibe was used for Splatfests with no alterations, allowing for very high numbers of flags because of the lack of stage rotation.
The following table lists Vibe levels, flag penalties, and payouts:
|SO HAWT!! (NA)
On Fire! (EU/OC)
Players can only claim each level's reward once per stage rotation. Upon claiming one, all of the previous levels' unclaimed bonuses are included. For example, consider the following scenarios:
- Map selection changed.
- Scenario 1:
- Scenario 2:
If the player reaches a certain Vibe level, drops to a lower one, and then talks to Judd, they will still get the reward of the highest flag count they earned.
- Scenario 3:
