Up and down the Moray Towers Splat Zones (7-4, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017

Sloshing over the Splat Zones seems like the best use of my bucket on Moray Towers, so I tend to take a defensive route to start these battles. That goes well, so I try to get sneaky around the side of the other team. I get around the side, destroy ...

Finding some breathing room in Splat Zones (7-4, Tri-slosher)

Monday, July 24th, 2017

I'm back in S Rank, and not faring too well overall. I pull out the Tri-slosher in a bid to be as competent as possible, but it doesn't always work. Thankfully, my squidmates know what they're doing, and take care of things whilst I squid around being target practice for ...

Chaotic Rainmaker (5-8, Grim Range Blaster)

Monday, July 24th, 2017

The teal team makes a good break with the Rainmaker, which either goes unnoticed by my team or they are mostly splatted. At least I don't ignore the objective, hoping someone else takes care of it, because I think it would have been a really quick battle otherwise. I get behind ...

Tough tussle over the Splat Zones (11-8, Tri-slosher)

Sunday, July 23rd, 2017

Three of us head away from the Splat Zones to start with. It seems to work out just fine, to be fair. I catch two oncoming inklings, taking the route from the opposite side, Disrupting one and slinking to the side of the other. Jumping across the ramp doesn't quite ...

Beyond the Splat Zones (5-1, Tri-slosher)

Sunday, July 23rd, 2017

Well, my opening gambit doesn't work so well. I don't know why my Disruptor doesn't hit the Carbon Roller, maybe because I hit the blocks instead, but it means he can react quickly to my presence. I am splatted back to base. The Splat Zones are green for a bit. With ...

Squidding around the Splat Zones (6-3, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

My early attempt to splat the E-litre 3K on the perch near the moving platform doesn't quite work, and I don't make the jump across. But falling down lets me look towards the Splat Zones, and get a splat without popping my Bubbler. But the Bubbler may have helped against ...

Can't get close to the Splat Zones (4-5, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

Running in to a Splat Bomb is not a great start to the battle. It's a nice throw, though, and rolls just at my feet from behind the fan, and my already meagre reaction time is simply not good enough to get away in time. The teal team capture the Splat ...

More splats for Marie in Splat Zones (6-4, Tri-slosher)

Friday, July 21st, 2017

Green versus purple. I think I can make this more of a partisan battle than usual, just by thinking I'm fighting on the side of Marie in a daytime Splatfest. To that end, I nip along the side and around the back, and although I don't catch anyone on a ...

Luck goes both ways in Splat Zones (6-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Friday, July 21st, 2017

I aim for the short-cut to the Splat Zones with my Seeker, and get pretty close from that angle. A bit of flicking and I'm right there, really quickly, just about wishing that maybe I had dragged my heels a bit. A squidmate also gets splatted pretty quickly, and I ...

It's a splattacre in Tower Control (11-11, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

A bit of caution as I approach the centre of the map pays off. My Disruptors may miss their mark, but not having enough ink to throw another holds me back, keeps me safe. I splat the Luna Blaster well enough, but can't quite get under the Dynamo Roller. At ...
