Just enough ink in Rainmaker (2-0, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

I didn't know our Rainmaker carrier was going to head left, although maybe I should have anticipated it. My prospective forward Seeker leaves me with barely enough ink to rush the Rainmaker forwards to start with, but I get enough back to spearhead the push. We meet a little resistance, but ...

Turning the tide in Rainmaker (12-6, Carbon Roller Deco)

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

My opening gambit doesn't work very well, perhaps leaving my squidmates one inkling down letting the green team get the upper hand. Then again, they dominate us for a while, so maybe I'd just have been splatted going along the main corridor. My second attempt doesn't go any better, with ...

Enjoying the Squiffer in Tower Control (7-5, Fresh Squiffer)

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

That's some unintentionally good timing to avoid the Killer Wail pointed our way, and although I can't quite match the timing to catch the inkling trying to get on to our ledge, I'm happy to say I don't miss when he jumps right in front of my Squiffer. I jump ...

Early loss means a smooth ride in Tower Control (4-1, Fresh Squiffer)

Sunday, October 22nd, 2017

I get in a bit of a mess to start with, which isn't unusual, but manage to find space to take a breath and think that the Hero Charger Replica could probably pose us problems. I move to apply some pressure, and get a splat, but on the Rapid Blaster ...

Sloshing for me, and the team, in Tower Control (16-4, Tri-slosher)

Sunday, October 22nd, 2017

That E-litre 3K is going to cause us problems, and I doubt I can squid down from the ledge safely. Instead, I go the long way around, which works surprisingly well. I have to catch up with the Tower, heading backwards, but I do so without the E-litre 3K breathing ...

Around the back to the goal in Tower Control (4-1, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, October 21st, 2017

If I move quickly enough, I may be able to get around the back of that E-litre 3K before she gets settled on her perch. I squid nice and quickly to the centre of the Mall, and am not interrupted heading around the back. But where's the E-litre 3K? There ...

Turning my fortune around in Splat Zones (5-2, Fresh Squiffer)

Saturday, October 21st, 2017

That blue Splattershot pulls off a couple of good moves to splat me twice. The first time he inks a path to squid through the Suction Bombs I'm trying to use to keep him at bay, giving him a clear shot. The second time, he sees me sensibly avoid his ...

Being useless until the end in Rainmaker (1-5, Tri-slosher)

Friday, October 20th, 2017

I don't think that squidbagging is deserved at the start of the battle, but whatever. At least my squidmates do a bit better, pushing the Rainmaker a bit, and I try to keep it going, but I don't get too far when a Splat Bomb lands next to me as ...

Having fun being bad with the Fresh Squiffer in Rainmaker (8-6, Fresh Squiffer)

Friday, October 20th, 2017

My Fresh Squiffer versus the E-litre 3K. Who could possibly win this match-up?! Well, the E-litre 3K would, if I tried to take her on conventionally. Luckily, I don't, and remember my Suction Bombs and other neat things like hiding behind walls. The other Squiffer is a complication, but I ...

More hits than misses in Splat Zones (15-4, Carbon Roller Deco)

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

If I had a bucket, I'd be looking for that E-litre first thing. But I don't, and it would be crazy to try it with a Carbon Roller, so I just ink some turf sensibly. I try to stay out of trouble too, but, as is always the case in ...
