The Splatoon 3 Splatfest has a bug, however Nintendo has a workaround
“Conch shells obtained earlier than voting might disappear”
A Splatoon 3 Splatfest bug has been detected: however the excellent news is that Nintendo has formally acknowledged it, and has offered a workaround.
Right here’s the complete rundown from Nintendo: “A bug has been present in Splatoon 3 during which conch shells obtained earlier than voting might disappear and won’t rely in direction of the Splatfest outcomes.” And right here’s the momentary workaround: “To keep away from this subject, we advocate gamers vote within the Splatfest earlier than amassing conch shells.”
So breaking this down, you mainly simply wish to select your aspect within the Splatfest instantly, or as quickly as doable earlier than enjoying matches. After that, every part you earn shall be above board. Nintendo notes that the bug “shall be mounted sooner or later,” so fortunately it’s only for this explicit Splatfest. Once more, this solely applies to the occasion occurring this weekend.
In any case, it’s good to see Nintendo pounce on these points rapidly, earlier than they get out of hand. The primary few weeks of assist may be essential for sustaining a long run playerbase, and I’m wanting ahead to no matter “long run resolution” they’ve for Splatfest 4v2v2 Tricolor matches. The pre-launch occasion was just about the one shaky expertise I had with this recreation, so if they will nail that, they will add some momentum.
