“The first of the weekly ESL Go4 tournaments, taking place this weekend, will award players on the cup-winning team an item of official Splatoon clothing signed by members of the Splatoon development team. The top teams each week will earn themselves Go4Splatoon ranking points. Each calendar month, the eight teams with the most ranking points will proceed to the following month’s Europe Monthly Final. The champions of each monthly final earn themselves a spot at the grand final in 2017: not only will the ultimate splat showdown reveal Europe’s best Splatoon team, it will also award each player on the winning side Nintendo’s next video game system, code-named NX.
