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 ...

Coping with a pair of chargers in Tower Control (14-8, Blaster)

Wednesday, May 10th, 2017

Back the Blaster for a bit, as my battling is getting sloppy again. It will still be sloppy with the Blaster, but it will feel so much worse that I'll want to improve. Or I could just get repeatedly picked off by either one of two chargers sitting on high ...

The splats are against me in Rainmaker (5-8, Blaster)

Friday, May 5th, 2017

Phew, splatted mid-air by a jumping E-litre 3K. That doesn't bode well for my safety in this battle. And I show just a bit too much caution on my return versus a hiding green inkling, letting him launch an Instrike, but when my direct hit doesn't land for a whole ...

Hearing the Rainmaker dunked (7-6, Blaster)

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

The route off to the right on to the grating should be a good start for a Blaster, giving me a good view of what's going on, both of the Rainmaker and what's happening below. If only my range were a bit longer, I could splat that first inkling, and ...

Super-quick comeback in Tower Control (6-2, Blaster)

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Check out my bomb awareness now! I squid behind a Seeker overtaking me, and back off from a Suction Bomb lobbed over the Tower. I feel I'm improving in leaps and bounds. I even throw a Disruptor that probably hits. I don't see, and it's on the inkling on the ...

Bad bomb awareness in Tower Control (12-8, Blaster)

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Here I go again, using the Blaster like a Tri-slosher, heading around the back to hope to surprise the charger. And somehow I surprise the charger! I think A- people are a bit more direct with their strategies and don't quite expect an inkling to play around the objective. That's ...
