Welp team socks got destroyed. Splatoon 2 splatfest have been way to one sided. I think Marina has only won like 2 so far.

Spatfest is more or less a coin toss now with Popularity having a advantage.

It's the hate that Pearl gets. Nintendo is probably making the Splatfest so that Pearl wins them more often or to be on a side everyone prefers. I'm not surprised at all, really. 
And you're right; Marina only won 2 so far.

That theory only worked pre SplatPower.
Since the introduction of Splat Power the matches will alway be close to 50/50. but you can't have a tie so 51/49. 52/48 if one side get's lucky.
If you look at all the Wins vs Loses they;re all 51/49 or 52/48. No blow outs, nothing like 60/40 that we saw with Ninja's vs Pirates or Autobots vs Decepticons.
which means the Wins and Losses can go either way and Popularity has the advantage with 1/3 points to win.

Oh? well, basically you will always face players around your splat power level. If you have high SplatPower, ie around 2000 you'll only face players who are also around 2000. If you have low splat power, around 1000 you'll only face players who are also around 1000. this will prevent players who are in the 2000 bracket from stomping the players in the 1000 bracket. thus the win loss records will almost always be close to 50/50 because the matches are usually be evenly matched.

That being said, I went 35 and 15 in my last 50 Splatfest matches ( %70 wins ) and Socks still lost, so it feel's even more luck based now.

I meant I didn't know how Splatfest power works.  Does it affect the final score?

not really, I mean the team with the higher splatfest power will have more wins in theory. but you could have 1 group of players on one team with their power at 2500, and 10 groups of players on the other team at 2300, and everyone else 2000 or lower, so even though one side as a team at 2500, they're out numbered by the multiple teams at 2300.

Splat-Power just keeps the matchs "fair" so they're not completely one sided.
So players like me wont be matched up with someone who's still learning. Though my splatpower wasn't that high this time around. I only made it to 2107.2

I think Nintendo is aware how the hate Pearl gets, so they make obvious team everyone would join given to Pearl, as a little "You hate her? So be forced with her" kind of thing......y'know what i mean?
