Not a bad first Splat Zones in S Rank (3-1, Kelp Splatterscope)

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

I'm tempting fate by switching the Splatterscope for my S Rank battles. I'm tempting fate to kick me straight back down to A+, with my blessing. Instead, it inspires me to take a route new to me on Hammerhead Bridge, and get an early splat. I probably shouldn't have pushed so ...

Back up to S Rank from the Splat Zones (8-5, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, January 21st, 2017

It seems I can barely lose at the moment. That's good for my esteem, not so much for my staying out of S Rank for a bit longer. Still, I had a good run, all the way down to the bottom of A-, in fact. I have a good run in ...

Going the distance in Splat Zones (5-1, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, January 21st, 2017

One early splat, almost averted by getting under the Splash Wall, but also cutting me off from an escape route I'd never take, and that's it for my being splatted. That doesn't happen often. As is usual for me, I tend to ignore the Splat Zones and bit and go searching ...

Skirting around Tower Control (5-4, Tri-slosher)

Friday, January 20th, 2017

Back with the Tri-slosher for a bit, and although there is no charger on the other team I am still keen to get to the middle of Arowana Mall and see if I can sneak around the back. Well, I was keen, but I have a change of heart and think ...

Back in A+ and doing okay in Tower Control (2-1, Splatterscope)

Friday, January 20th, 2017

After nearly dropping out of A-, I have a couple of good sessions and rise back in to A, and now A+. That makes me feel a bit better about my gameplay. I am only doing okay in A+, though, and can't say I'm doing well. I get the feeling that ...

Buckets vs buckets in Splat Zones (7-1, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

The Tri-slosher has been working well for me in tonight's Splat Zones. I wondered if I would prefer the Splatterscope for Walleye Warehouse, but decided I could do well with the bucket there, and might prefer it on Flounder Heights. Of course, the Tri-slosher has worked wonderfully on Walleye Warehouse. ...

Sloshing all around the Splat Zones (10-4, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

I see the Splatling on the other team. Maybe the tactic from the previous battle will work here too. The side route certainly seems to be unfavoured at the moment, so I'm going to give it a try. I don't see the Splatling, but I move higher on the map to ...

Show no mercy in the Splat Zones (12-1, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

I see you, E-litre 3K. Well, I see you at the introductions. But where will you be in a moment? I'll go around the back to find out. I flank down the side, a quite effective route, and manage to go unnoticed. But where is the E-litre? Okay, I see you. ...

Nearly losing it in Tower Control (12-7, Blaster)

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

The Blaster has been working for me in Tower Control, and I'm happy to give it another outing. It's the basic Blaster again, as maybe the Killer Wail can come in handy, as well as the Disruptor, if I remember it. I also need to remember not to run straight ...

Being a nuisance around the Splat Zones (10-6, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

I do like Mahi-Mahi Resort. Sure, I fall in to the water a lot, but I like the intricacies of it all. I don't enjoy quite as much a Luna Blaster quite so close to me, but I really thought for a second that I had splatted him. I knew ...
