Running out of ink on Tower Control

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

The Tri-Slosher can be a thirsty beast, particularly when I mash the trigger continually. That may end up being my downfall on this Tower Control battle on Camp Triggerfish. That, and forgetting that I have a Bubbler special. I uncharacteristically ignore the tower to start with to get a couple of ...

Tower Control on Piranha Pit

Monday, February 8th, 2016

My first Ranked battle on Piranha Pit, and it's on Tower Control. I grab my current favourite weapon for the game mode, and get throwing ink around with the Tri-Slosher. It's easy enough to get to the tower, but its path doesn't go far from the centre of the map. ...

First look at Piranha Pit on Turf War

Sunday, February 7th, 2016

Not much of a first look any more, as Piranha Pit was released at the end of December, but it's my first game on the map. Rather than head directly in to Ranked battles on unfamiliar terrain, I pop on to Turf War first. It's a bit more relaxed, less ...

Trying the Custom Dual Squelcher in Turf War

Saturday, February 6th, 2016

I'm giving another weapon new to me a go. This time, it's the Custom Dual Squelcher, a shooter that has perhaps the longest range that isn't a charger. I should probably use that to my advantage, although the habits from playing so long with short-range weapons will probably take a ...

Pushed back in Splat Zones

Friday, February 5th, 2016

Part of my motivation for trying different weapons is because they often seem so effective when used against me in certain battle modes. This is one of those games. The .52 Gal weapon splats with a couple of hits, and has a fairly long range. Its sub weapon is the Splash ...

Being taken in to overtime in Splat Zones

Thursday, February 4th, 2016

Feeling rusty, I revert to the Splash-o-Matic in the hope that I can be useful in Splat Zones. It's a good weapon, and one I am comfortable with, but perhaps not one that is most useful for Splat Zones, with it having a short range. But the Suction Bomb Rush ...

First game with the Inkbrush Nouveau on Splat Zones

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

I still want to try out different weapons, to give me options when playing various battle modes on the maps in rotation. I'm giving the Inkbrush Nouveau a chance in Splat Zones. I've seen other players get where they want to go quickly, as the run speed when inking with ...

Making amends in Rainmaker

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

A particularly good start in this Rainmaker battle on Camp Triggerfish. The standard Aerospray MG plus Seeker manoeuvre works well, splatting an inkling when bursting the shield, but grabbing the Rainmaker and squidding around to the side has a bit of situational awareness too. I see the inkling waiting to ...

A little misdirection in Rainmaker

Monday, February 1st, 2016

Another great start to Camp Triggerfish Rainmaker. I lurk for a bit after bursting the shield to refill my ink tank, to see if someone foolishly rushes in to grab it. No one this time, so I take the Rainmaker for myself and squid along with squidmate support around the ...

Getting the rest of the way with the Rainmaker

Sunday, January 31st, 2016

I throw the standard Aerospray MG Seeker to help get us quickly to the centre of Camp Triggerfish, where we make short work of bursting the Rainmaker's shield, splatting two of the other team in the process. That shield has a large burst radius, and it can easily catch you ...
