I can't play S-Rank Tower Control

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Somehow staying in S Rank, I battle on. But I don't know why. Actually, I do know why: in the hopes of dropping out of S Rank again, if I lose enough. But losing battles isn't much fun when you're being stomped every game. I've tried several different weapons, and none ...

Battle to the end in Tower Control

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Do you like my new hat? I think I should make use of it, which pretty much means equipping the Splatterscope. I'm okay with that. There's the usual reluctance to get on the tower at the start of the battle, which is probably less to do with not wanting to ride ...

Splatting in extra time in Tower Control

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016

Let's stick with the Custom Blaster for now in Tower Control. Hopefully it will work just as well on Piranha Pit as it does on other maps. I quite like the route the tower takes in Piranha Pit. It makes for a good battle with lots of tension, without sacrificing the ...

Blasting away in Tower Control

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016

First choice weapon tonight for Tower Control was the Tri-slosher, one of my favourites. It didn't work out so well. Let's give a recent new weapon another go instead, the Custom Blaster. I mostly get back in to the swing of the weapon without much delay, although I doubt I will ...

Sloshing around the Splat Zones

Monday, August 29th, 2016

Two chargers on each team. Hopefully our chargers will keep their chargers at bay. Or maybe the longer range of the Slosher over the Tri-slosher I'm more used to will help me splat the chargers myself. I like my odds in both Urchin Underpass and Ancho-V Games with the Slosher, as ...

Sloshers assemble in Splat Zones

Monday, August 29th, 2016

Time to try a new weapon. It's Splat Zones again in Ranked battles, which seem to be coming up pretty often these days, which means spreading lots of ink around. I could use the Splatterscope, or the Dual Squelcher, or even the Splattershot Jr, but today I think I'll give ...

Keeping it purple in Splat Zones

Sunday, August 28th, 2016

I stick with the Splatterscope for now, thinking I can at least splash a lot of ink around the Splat Zones. Well, it doesn't look like I can face off against a fellow charger, not from the first encounter. Still, it was one of her squidmates sneaking up on me. My ...

Being good support in Splat Zones

Sunday, August 28th, 2016

I still feel rubbish in S-Rank battles. I don't think that feeling will go away any time soon. But I have to keep trying, I suppose. And although I still can't aim for toffee, my Splatterscope can at least provide nice long lines of ink across the Splat Zones when ...

Back to S Rank Tower Control

Saturday, August 27th, 2016

To say I didn't enjoy my time in S Rank before is to understate my mood somewhat. I'm back there now, having only briefly bounced down to A+, and I would like to stay positive. I hope this attitude lasts. Although I feel out-classed again, I also feel like I am ...

All over the place in Tower Control

Saturday, August 27th, 2016

A pretty nifty start to this Tower Control battle for me. A couple of splats, albeit after a couple of misfires, and although I miss getting a triple-splat, getting rid of the opposing charger makes up for it, as well as providing a good opportunity for our team. Sadly, I don't ...
