First Tower Control battle back in S Rank goes okay (12-8, Tri-slosher)

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

Last time I was in S Rank I held my own for a fairly extended session. I would like to think I can enjoy my time here again, but as it's been a struggle getting back out of the A Ranks I am a little apprehensive about what the experience ...

Distracting the opposition in Tower Control (5-1, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

I really do like Moray Towers, whatever the type of battle. Lots of vertical surfaces, side routes, back routes. I just find it like a little adventure each time I'm allowed room to skirmish around. Much like this battle. I make a slightly different start, taking the jump to launch the ...

Ducking and diving in Tower Control (10-2, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

Straight around the back to the teal side of the map for me. The extra blocks in Museum d'Alfonsino for Tower Control make this much easier than in other battle modes, which lets me get the drop on what I assume is a charger hanging back. I move on to ...

Getting close in Tower Control (7-1, Tri-slosher)

Friday, April 21st, 2017

Tower Control on Moray Towers means it's Tri-slosher time! I'm learning from other battles that jumping on to the Tower in a depression right in the middle of the map is a bad idea. I'm also learning to look before I leap. I can't remember which ledges are here and ...

Basic Splat Zones (4-0, Carbon Roller Deco)

Friday, April 21st, 2017

I want to like Saltspray Rig, and think it a good map. I've had some fun battles in Turf War here, and it's the only map that isn't rotationally symmetrical. But it has a bad reputation in all Ranked modes, so much that only Splat Zones are played here any ...

Finally returning to A+ in Splat Zones (8-1, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

When I was trying to get back from A to S Rank, I had a pitiful time. I played for ages and managed to do nothing but tread water. When I decided not to care what rank I was and just play to my ability, a few battles at a ...

Charging towards the goal in Tower Control (12-5, Splatterscope)

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Tower Control is more of my bag than Splat Zones, and after yesterdays salty times I think I'll pick up a Splatterscope and see if I can relax at the back of the map. Or if we are pressed back, blame everyone else for not holding enough turf. And I ...

Splats don't mean much in Splat Zones (17-6, Carbon Roller Deco)

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

I think I need more swim speed to make that jump to the central platform at the start of the battle. But never mind, the Splat Zones are right there, and I should be inking them anyway. I need to avoid a bit of attention first, although I'm not sure ...

Back-and-forth in Splat Zones (14-7, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

Woo, look at me go! I probably overestimate my speed with the Tri-slosher, and it's more that I am over-eager to be the first to get splatted in the middle of the map. But I get to the middle and start inking the Splat Zones, like a good squidmate, which ...

Taking a contrary route to the Rainmaker (5-1, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

I do like going around the back. It doesn't always work, admittedly, and I need to be more aware of when I'm needed closer to the objective, but I like to think I help more than hinder. Mahi-Mahi Resort, despite it's puddles, offers some nice routes. I don't go around the ...
