Bubblers make for good riding in Tower Control (5-3, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Mmm, Tri-slosher, Flounder Heights, and Tower Control. Can battling get any better? Getting an early splat on a Carbon Roller is pretty good! Getting a delayed splat back is not as good, but it happens. Lobbing the occasional Splat Bomb over a ledge doesn't seem like compelling times to me, but ...

Wet splats in Tower Control (9-8, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Sticking with the Tri-slosher for now, for some skirmishing action around Mahi-Mahi Resort. That's the plan, at least, which kinda requires not getting splat by an N-Zap from below before I get anywhere. I'm sure I can do better. Splatted by a Kraken is arguably better, as it is harder to ...

Getting a good headstart in Moray Towers Rainmaker (11-8, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

Whee! The start of a Moray Towers battle is always invigorating. This time it's made more so by the splatting of a Dual Squelcher that unexpectedly gets in my way of sneaking around the side, followed by the E-litre 3K I was actually aiming for. A third splat is pretty sweet, ...

The Rainmaker is somewhere (11-8, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

I really like the Carbon Roller Deco, but I don't want to forget other weapons. It's back to the Tri-slosher for a bit of Rainmaker. I can be much more aggressive with the bucket, whether or not it works, as I demonstrate. Just rush ahead, inking everything, and splats will ...

Messy splatting in Tower Control (10-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

I'm holding my own in S Rank, which makes a nice change. It makes me feel like I'm improving. Maybe the Carbon Roller Deco is helping me out, or trying to learn it is helping improve my battling. It doesn't seem like a huge improvement in my battling when I find ...

Getting some splats in Tower Control (10-7, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

A decent start to this battle, albeit defensive. But that's the best way a Carbon Roller Deco can start a battle. Any more aggressive and you're just asking to be the first splat. We defend our corridor, clear the Tower, and take control. Not for long, but it's something. A bit ...

Taking back control in Tower Control (8-9, Carbon Roller Deco)

Monday, March 20th, 2017

I think I'm getting the hang of the Carbon Roller Deco. That's not to say I'm a better Splatoon player, though, as no weapon magically makes you good, so I will still make bad decisions and mistakes. And sometimes a Krak-On Splat Roller will just splat you wherever you are. Inking ...

Trying to find a groove in Tower Control (10-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Monday, March 20th, 2017

Tower Control and Blackbelly Skatepark. The mode and map that probably work least well for the Carbon Roller Deco and its Seekers. But that's okay! I bet I can do something. I remember previous attempts at squidding over a ledge at an inkling shooting right at me, and discard them as ...

Good start, but muddy middle to Splat Zones (9-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Sunday, March 19th, 2017

Well, the battle isn't good for me right at the start, the bit where I manage to get surrounded by three green inklings. But after that, a Seeker finds an inkling not wanting to pause a Suction Bomb Rush, and a squidmate prevents my getting splatted which lets me launch ...

Some misses, some hits, lots of fun in Splat Zones (9-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Sunday, March 19th, 2017

Two Carbon Roller Decos! How can we possibly lose this battle? We can't! Let's just get on with it. Okay, first splat to the purple Splat-on Roller. Must be luck. And, sure, i don't last long the next time either, but my Seeker lives on long enough to get a splat, ...
