Pushing back the greens in Tower Control

Monday, July 25th, 2016

I'm flitting between weapons this evening, happy with both the Tri-slosher for Tower Control, and the Splatterscope for the maps. It's good to have options too, as it can change the way I play. I still get splatted in silly ways, whatever I do. Jumping on the tower whilst equipped ...

Skirting the map in Tower Control

Sunday, July 24th, 2016

Blaster, E-litre 3K, and Splatling on the other team, with my Tri-slosher equipped. I envisage having a hard time, if I try to face them head on. I try to be smarter and sneak around the edges, but the E-litre has moved there already, and is followed up by the ...

Fighting a losing battle in Tower Control

Saturday, July 23rd, 2016

Camp Triggerfish Tower Control with the Splatterscope. This should be fun! I take the side route to get a decent perch, and even manage to splat someone by aiming! Of course, I soon am forced off that perch, but that's expected. The opponents then take the attitude that turf control manes ...

Taking the tower to the goal on Mahi-Mahi Resort

Friday, July 22nd, 2016

Once I find a route that works, I tend to stick with it. At least for its general purpose, which at the start of Mahi-Mahi Resort is to outflank the opponents. Note how I skilfully encourage an inkling to jump in the water in this battle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r171OF-O4QY I mix my time up ...

Mahi-Mahi Resort Tower Control

Thursday, July 21st, 2016

Luna Blasters have been around for ages in Tower Control, and although they are frustrating I can see why they are so useful. Or because they are so frustrating, for the other team. But there seems to be a new-found interest in Blasters in general, which is even more frustrating, ...

First look at Mahi-Mahi Resort Tower Control

Wednesday, July 20th, 2016

What do Mahi-Mahi Resort and Ancho-V Games have in common? That I lose my first Tower Control battle on each. Maybe if I didn't lose sight of the tower and head the wrong way, only to turn around and jump in to the water, the battle could have gone differently. I ...

First look at Ancho-V Games Tower Control

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Ancho-V Games and Mahi Mahi Resort are in the map rotation, so I think I'm in for some Splat Zones. But no! Tower Control! I don't think I've seen Tower Control on either of these maps, so this will be interesting. I equip my Tri-slosher and head in to a ...

Dunking the Rainmaker on Kelp Dome

Monday, July 18th, 2016

I've worked out that going up to the centre of the platform in Kelp Dome on Rainmaker is a sure way to get splatted by its shield, and instead take one of the jutting columns. Much better. If I can work out what can stop an Inkzooka splatting me, I think ...

Carrying the Rainmaker

Sunday, July 17th, 2016

What the hell are my team doing at the start of this Rainmaker battle? They go every which way but actually towards the Rainmaker. And there's a growing body of empirical evidence that all I'll manage to do at the start is get splatted. Oh well. At least we get a ...

Inking the way for the Rainmaker

Saturday, July 16th, 2016

Oops, squids go through grates. It's almost like I don't know this. I get myself back in to position and hope I'm not too late to defend the Rainmaker. But I am a little. One splat, but then hit on two fronts. Never mind. Chargers aren't just good for splatting inklings ...
