Having a blast in Tower Control (12-6, Grim Range Blaster)

Saturday, August 19th, 2017

I like my use of the Burst Bomb on the fan, keeping the platform elevated and getting the splat on the Rapid Blaster. If my aim were better, it would have been a direct hit, same with the Roller, but I'm still happy to get indirect hits, as long as ...

Can I keep doing this in Splat Zones (11-5, Carbon Roller Deco)

Saturday, August 19th, 2017

The classic Seeker trail gets me to the Splat Zones quickly, but I don't launch the second soon enough, and run out of ink. I just about escape a Suction Bomb and an E-litre 3K shot, but where are my squidmates? The Splat Zones turn purple. One of them is ...

Early celebration in Splat Zones (6-1, Carbon Roller Deco)

Friday, August 18th, 2017

I can't quite roll right around the back without running out of ink. So it goes for not being able to squid in your own ink trail. The pause lets me take a breath, and decide which way I'll turn. Towards the Splat Zones, I think, as I spy a ...

Splats that count in Tower Control (3-6, Grim Range Blaster)

Friday, August 18th, 2017

I think I do quite well not to squid backwards on to that Splat Bomb tossed my way, and to get out of the way of a second Splat Bomb. And maybe I don't use my sneaky wall position to my advantage, but I manage to retreat out of danger, ...

One push is all it takes in Tower Control (8-10, Grim Range Blaster)

Thursday, August 17th, 2017

I get lucky avoiding that Carbon Roller at the mad rush for the Tower, and I celebrate by taking a swim, rather than aiming for the Bamboozler. I'm sure I had my reasons. My aim lets me down a little as the Carbon Roller forces me back, but I suppose ...

Grim blasting in Tower Control (14-7, Grim Range Blaster)

Thursday, August 17th, 2017

Woo, look at the brush go, tentacles flapping away! That gives us a really swift path to the Tower, and I chance squidding past it. I get a lucky direct hit for the first splat, persuading the other yellow inklings to retreat. A couple of indirect hits gets a second ...

Pressing back the purple in Splat Zones (6-1, Carbon Roller Deco)

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

No Seeker for me to start the battle. I am aiming to head immediately around the side, and don't want to run out of ink as I roll there. I find an inkling coming down the corridor, but as I went right around the side I catch her from behind, ...

Rollers in the Splat Zones (6-2, Carbon Roller Deco)

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

Rollers can cover turf pretty well, but they are vulnerable doing so. Going in to the Splat Zones battle with three of them on our team will be interesting. I zoom my way forwards, thanks to a couple of Seekers, and just about avoid the Aerospray's ink to squid up ...

Consecutive splats for the loss in Splat Zones (15-9, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

I take my usual route around the side to get behind the other team, and with no yellow inklings down the corridor it looks like I've got a clean run to do it. I have to say, my squidding isn't as smooth as it could be, but I get to ...

Not quick enough with the Bubbler in Splat Zones (6-5, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

I take a long, rather convoluted route to the Splat Zones, but I'm not spotted this time. That lets me hit the purple team from behind, getting a couple of splats, whilst having my Bubbler charged and ready in case of trouble. The trouble comes from below, though, where I'm ...
