A losing stream has me plummetting down the A+ Rank. That makes it time to try a new weapon! A brush, I think, and the Octobrush Nouveau looks like a decent option. I'll give it a go.
Of course, I take it out to Sheldon's trial zone first, but even though that lets me see what the brush can do, it doesn't really show me the way it should be used. It takes me a fair amount of time just to get an idea of what I should be doing, and it will take me many more battles before I think I'm doing it.
I know the power of splashing ink, but I need to get the range right. I know the speed and manoeuvrability of running with the brush, and I could both use it that way more, and know when to run and when to squid.
For a first effort, though, I think I do okay. More practice required, definitely, but maybe with that practice I can improve.
That was an excellent move by my squidmate to forge the path and try to get me to the podium by turning in to a Kraken, by the way. It's a shame I didn't quite make it. The triple splat near the end bolsters my figures nicely too.
