The community of Splatoon 2 accused Nintendo canceled the NA December Open> tournament stream because many teams have renamed themselves #FreeMelee in protest at the treatment received by the competitive scene of the Super Smash Bros. series.
Everything was born from the cancellation of the Big House Smash event, due to the intervention of Nintendo’s lawyers, who sent one beware to the organizers. The reason? They simply wanted to use a third party client for online gaming.
Gamers have literally revolted over this decision, seen as outright abuse, as Nintendo does not provide any official support at Smash esports events. Hence the hashtag #FreeMelee, which has also spread to other communities related to Nintendo games, including Splatoon 2.
Officially, Nintendo didn’t cancel the Splatoon 2 event stream due to #FreeMelee, but it appealed to technical reasons, but didn’t convince the community. In particular, the organizer, SlimyQuagsire, immediately linked the cancellation to the protest, underlining the importance of the tournament for the Splatoon 2 community and how it is the first time since the birth of the franchise that something like this happens.
The request made to Nintendo is very simple: if it wants to continue not to support community born around its games, at least you avoid preventing them from growing independently with warnings and other legal actions.
