What do we say to GGBoyz, our new Splatoon 2 World Champions?
Omedetou, that’s what.
Here come Japan’s finest inklings — the GGBoyz.
On the day 2 of the Splatoon 2 World Championship, Japan and Australia went head-to-head (or should we say ink-to-ink?), GGBoyz versus BackSquids.
It was a best of seven game, featuring rotating game modes like Splat Zones, Tower Control, Rainmaker, and Clam Blitz.
The championship ended with a 4-2 against the BackSquids who were able to make a tie earlier in the finals.
The Splatoon 2 World Championship happened on June 11 – 12, 2018 during E3 2018 at the Belasco Theater just a few blocks away from the E3 stage.
What happened on day 1?
Initially, four squid teams competed on the first day of the world championship. It was US versus Europe and Japan versus Australia.
Japan’s GGBoyz moved on to the first seed easily with a 3-0 against Australia’s Yeah Nah.
It was a different story for the other match, however as both America’s SetToDestroyX and Europe’s BackSquids close in with a tie of 2-2 mid-game. However, the BackSquids were able to beat up the tie in a sudden turn of events where they’ve taken the tower against STDX.
It’s hashtag GGWIN!
