Squidicidal Splat Zones

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

Sticking with Moray Towers lets me combine strategies from the previous battles, hopefully to good effect. This apparently includes how to fall off ledges. An early scuffle for our Splat Zone sees the other ream take the lead, but we fight back to take control of the Splat Zones, and we ...

So nearly A+ with 3 chargers in Splat Zones

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

Three chargers on our team for Moray Towers Splat Zones. That may not be so bad, as they cover a lot of turf quite easily. As long as we can dictate range, which is quite possible on Moray Towers, we should compete well enough. I think the main problem is working ...

Trying to stay out of trouble in Splat Zones

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

My previous battle got me in to some tight spots. This time, I'll try to keep more at my Splatterscope's optimal range. This should be a little easier when paired against an E-Litre charger. I think I do well, at least for the first three minutes of the game. Then my ...

Covering the Splat Zones

Sunday, May 1st, 2016

Moray Towers is in the rotation, which would be time to break out the Splatterscope, but the other map is Hammerhead Bridge. Well, if I can make it work on Kelp Dome, I can see what I can do on the Bridge. I look for a perch of relative safety that ...

Good start, bad all the rest, on Tower Control

Saturday, April 30th, 2016

A pair of exemplary splats right at the start of the battle put me in a good mood. A couple of snatched shots make me look like a skilled charger, so I have to spend most of the rest of the battle proving that wrong. I find it hard to resist ...

A+ rank still eludes me in Tower Control

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Note that when I take initial control of the tower, there are three purple squids, at least, contesting the central area, and only me representing the yellow squids. A look at the gamepad, as I have time during respawn, shows them to be faffing around at the edges. It's a ...

Hopelessly confused in Tower Control

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

A change of weapon to the Splattershot Jr, to see if I can improve my performance in Tower Control. The map moves back from Hammerhead Bridge to Kelp Dome, but that shouldn't matter. I'm hoping the Bubbler will help me out. What would also help is knowing what's happening. I completely ...

Never gonna reach A+ rank in Tower Control

Wednesday, April 27th, 2016

My previous Ranked battle pushed me up to A 97 rank. Will this evening see me reach even higher, up to A+ rank? Well, maybe the title of this video gives away the ending. In this battle, I learn that I can't do a backflip off a wall on to the ...

Straight to the base on Tower Control

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

Tower Control doesn't get much simpler than this. Go to the tower, ride it to the base. It's like Ice Cube telling us what to do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTWj596DBeI It's good to see every squid spamming 'Nice!' as we reach the goal. Let's have a second: Can we make it in Tower Control? After early forays ...

Keeping it blue in the Splat Zones

Monday, April 25th, 2016

This battle doesn't start out well. The different turf textures make me misjudge a jump, and it's straight in to the water. I hope my squidmates aren't relying on me. The splats just keep on coming. And not my splatting them, but my being splatted. At least I lay down a ...
