Key Questions: What are you most excited about from the trailer? What are you most hopeful for? Are you buying at launch? When do you think launch will be?

Ploot and DrFinkelstein Discuss The July 6th, 2017 Nintendo Direct about Splatoon 2
@Mop it up Is that true? (Was that the first post this year??)
I thought that there was some League Mode for Turf War, once you reached a certain level. Shamefully, I've only played casual, solo Turf War. Actually, I HAVE played against a few of you guys. No party stuff, though.
I love that they're making Private Splatfest available, with the shifty stages. I hope that they do the same with ARMS Party Crash, with lots of setup options.
@Anand League is just for the four ranked modes and doesn't include Turf, sadly. It's a shame the Shifty Stations won't be available in regular Turf, most of them are easily the best stages in the game. I was at least hoping they'd bump it up to three stages per rotation since there are certainly enough in the game now to support that.
@DrFinkelstein I'm curious, what would you like to see done with a Splatoon 3 which can't be added into Splatoon 2?
