Do Americans like eating fries with ketchup or mayo?
Last night marked the end of yet another brutal Splatfest in Splatoon 2. This time around, mayonnaise and ketchup were the two choices that people could fight for. If you missed the news, mayo won the Splatfest in Japan 2-1, winning the majority vote and solo battles but lost to ketchup in the team battles. Mayo is used in a lot of Japanese dishes and even tastes different than the mayo here in North America so it’s sort of expected for mayo to come out on top.
In North America, New Zealand, and Australia, surprisingly, ketchup has lost the Splatfest to the off-white condiment that is mayo. Even though ketchup won the majority vote with 73%, mayo players destroyed ketchup players in team battles and solo battles, giving them the win.
According to Kotaku, Splatoon 2 ketchup fiends are angry about this turnout and are saying that the system was broken and/or rigged. People on Twitter are sending angry tweets to Nintendo of America, telling them that the servers are crap and the whole Splatfest was rigged.
maybe if your servers weren't shit and there weren't so many ketchup vs ketchup battles that didn't count it wouldn't be like this.

I FOUGHT MY OWN TEAM FOR 90% OF THE MATCHES, IT WAS RIGGED

Whether you found it to be fair or not, controversial or not, the results are what they are: Mayo has reigned supreme.
