If you’re like me your favourite part of this most recent Nintendo Direct was all the Splatoon 2
news. The news that got me most interested was the mysterious Splatoon X Rank. Well, some new
news about it has been revealed by Nintendo of Japan.
You will reach X Rank after achieving S+10. Once you progress to the Splatoon X Rank you will be
measured by X power. Your X power will determine who you will be matched with and
players with the closest X power will be matched up. Your X power will be reset at the
beginning of each month, and at any time if your X power becomes to low you will be
bumped back down to S+ Rank.
During the month you will be able to view the top 500 X Rank players on the SplatNet app
you will also be able to see what weapon they use most.
One of the biggest changes will be to the map rotation, for the month there will be eight
maps rotated in the matchmaking.
What do you think about the changes and, dose the Splatoon X Rank Appeal to you?
