Poor aim in Hoverboard Splatfest

Sunday, September 25th, 2016

Using a shooter on Saltspray Rig sees me make a beeline for the higher ground, trying to hold it. Using a charger, on the other hand, makes me think I can be of more use holding the lower turf, and from the comfort of our base level. I can cover plenty ...

Mahi-Mahi mayhem in Hoverboard Splatfest

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

There are good perches for competent chargers in Mahi-Mahi Resort. I think I should stick to inking turf. My failure to splat the Slosher coming over the block just confirms that notion. At least the turf is open enough to allow me lots of good sight-lines to ink turf, even if ...

Splat Bombin' in Hoverboard Splatfest

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

The Splatterscope is a great weapon on Moray Towers in the right tentacles. Luckily, for those of us without the right tentacles, we can always fall back on the Splat Bombs, and the Rush Special. I'm actually impressed that my first two splats are from aiming the Splatterscope, although maybe I ...

Watch the skies in Hoverboard Splatfest

Friday, September 23rd, 2016

Not a great battle for me. That inkling is not going to approach when I'm on my perch, and I miss him when he jumps. And my Splat Bomb throws are a bit feeble. And I am lacking just that little bit of range when I see an Inkstrike being ...

Trying to evade in Hoverboard Splatfest

Friday, September 23rd, 2016

We were two chargers and two Rollers. Not the best combination, but it worked a bit. One Roller drops out, and we get a shooter as a replacement. That feels like it should be better. I have an opposite number, it seems. A Splatterscope on the orange team who is out ...

Hit 'n' miss in Hoverboard Splatfest

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

I don't go straight for opponent territory in this Splatfest battle on Mahi-Mahi Resort. I still get splatted with little delay, so maybe my normal tactic is fine after all. I keep trying to be a bit more circumspect in my inking, rather than aggressive, but it doesn't seem to affect ...

Chased by Krakens in Hoverboard Splatfest

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

Inkbrushes are quick! Quicker than me, however hard I try, so I simply tag along for the boost. It's a good move, getting me to the top of Saltspray Rig nicely. Spraying some ink around is interrupted by a Kraken, which I know can climb up and splat me, so I ...

Roaming Moray Towers in Hoverboard Splatfest

Wednesday, September 21st, 2016

Moray Towers in the second Hoverboard Splatfest battle! Let's see what I can do. It has been a while since I've been here for a Turf War. Of course, the map has been modified, so my normal route isn't quite as effective, or risky, and I adopt a different route that ...

First battle in Hoverboard Splatfest

Wednesday, September 21st, 2016

I start the Hoverboard Splatfest with a safe, comfortable weapon, the Splash-o-Matic. I will switch a few times, particularly as Moray Towers is one of the maps, but it's good to get a decent start. First battle is on Saltspray Rig, a map that I like, but where circumstances can go ...

Great comeback in Rainmaker

Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

Romain was on our team in the last battle, and he seemed pretty good. Now he's on the other side. I hope that doesn't bode ill. It's the first battle of the evening on Mahi-Mahi Resort too, so naturally I get confused by what is water and what isn't. And ...
