Blasted Slosher in Rainmaker (12-8, Blaster)

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

Using the boxes to shield me from the Rainmaker's bursting shield is a pretty good idea. Maybe not so good that it puts me in to the sights of most of the purple inklings, but never mind, lesson learnt. By the time I return, which really doesn't take the long, ...

Carrying the Rainmaker (6-9, Blaster)

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

Holding back a little doesn't do me any favours here, but at least it indirectly gets me to where the Rainmaker is, albeit it heading towards our podium. As my Killer Wail charges bursting the Rainmaker Shield, it seems like a good time to use it and grab the Rainmaker. ...

Blast it all in Tower Control (11-6, Blaster)

Monday, July 31st, 2017

Holding back a little doesn't get me in to much trouble to start with, which is a nice change, and I even get a good splat. All looks clear, so I ride the Tower, my squidmates coming along when they can, but even though I see the Splat Bomb and ...

A few blasts in Tower Control (11-7, Blaster)

Thursday, July 27th, 2017

No one's really going for the Tower at the start of the battle. That's probably wise, though. Personally, I'm on the grating because it seems like the best place to be with my Blaster, particularly as I'm lacking a reliable way to ink walls. My positioning pays off too, getting ...

Trying to mount a comeback in Tower Control (11-6, Blaster)

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

E-litre 3K one way, Tri-slosher the other, and I guess wrong which one splats me. And there's an annoying interloper near our base. I may miss him with my Disruptor, but I do well not to get splatted immediately a second time. I do a bit of tidying up before ...

End-to-end battling in Tower Control (15-9, Blaster)

Friday, May 26th, 2017

Yeah, I'm still not great with a Blaster. Two indirect hits don't splat a Luna Blaster, who punishes me with a direct hit. And already we have an infiltrator, inking the turf purple as close to our base as he dares. I help try shoo him away, using Disruptors to ...

Blasts all around in Tower Control (12-8, Blaster)

Friday, May 26th, 2017

I try not to rush forwards in to trouble, and take a measured approach to riding the Tower. Naturally, as soon as I get on, when it looks clear, I am under inky pressure and hop off again. As my Disruptor throw goes nowhere, I get myself somewhere, and decide ...

A bit of a blast in Splat Zones (5-4, Blaster)

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

I've not played with the Blaster for a while. A few battles reminds me why: it's pretty difficult to do well. That means I need more practice! I also know some people think the Blaster is not suited to Splat Zones, unconvinced about its ink coverage, but I think it ...

Blasting away in Tower Control (13-7, Blaster)

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Twice I hit a squidmate with my Blaster as we move out. I bet it didn't hurt as much as getting splatted by the Splatterscope. I hang back, not wanting the same fate to befall me, until another blaster drops down to ink a nice path ahead of me, and ...

Splats but no success in Tower Control (16-8, Blaster)

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

I'm still trying to improve my battling skills with a regular foray with the Blaster. I think it's working to some extent, but I often forget what I'm trying to do and revert to charging ahead hoping to get some splats. That's part of my battling I need to work ...
