Missing my moment in Tower Control (13-5, Grim Range Blaster)

Saturday, June 24th, 2017

I'm trying the Grim Range Blaster in Tower Control, hoping to get the hang of the Burst/Blast combo. Judging by the start of the battle, I need more practice. I still haven't quite worked out the utility of Burst Bombs on vertical surfaces either, but I'll get there. Just as ...

What can you do in Splat Zones (6-4, Tri-slosher)

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

It seems like a straightforward start to the battle, thankfully without the E-litre 3K making an early appearance, but I do wonder what the brush is up to. What I shouldn't do is rush in foolishly, so I wait. When she appears, I strike, getting some solid sloshes in, but ...

Being vigilant around the Splat Zones (6-0, Tri-slosher)

Monday, June 12th, 2017

It's been a streak of all-or-nothing Splat Zone battles so far, and I've got a bit frustrated when on the 'nothing' side, pushed back to our base and unable to see the Splat Zones half the time. I'm not quite sure what's causing this, but I encourage myself to battle ...

Splatty fun in Rainmaker (8-4, Kelp Splat Charger)

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

I'm going unscoped again. My first challenge, though, is remembering which button is jump. After adjusting my camera a couple of times, it all comes back to me. It's been a whole two days since I last battled, this isn't easy. My first shot doesn't go so well either, and ...

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 ...

Charging beside the Rainmaker (7-4, Hero Charger Replica)

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

I spy that inkable block for Rainmaker. That'll stop me taking the long route around the side for no reason. I get up on to the perch nice and quickly, but the Rainmaker Shield once more obstructs my aim. And I almost have a point this time, because despite my ...

Getting the splats around the Splat Zones (9-1, Carbon Roller Deco)

Wednesday, May 10th, 2017

I'm having another run of unsatisfactory battles. It won't get better by my being more aggressive, but by my battling smarter. As if to prove the point, rushing to get across to the other side of Camp Triggerfish merely runs me in to a Carbon Roller with better reflexes than ...

Getting a quad in Squad Tower Control (14-6, Tri-slosher)

Friday, April 28th, 2017

I've had some good fun with the Carbon Roller Deco tonight, so it's time to pull out the Tri-slosher for Tower Control. The bucket works well with a height advantage, so I head around the side to clamber up the wall. It's not a great position to be at the ...

Splats all around Squad Tower Control (14-6, Carbon Roller Deco)

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

We're pulling out the big guns for this squad battle. Acethunder is, at least, with his Gal, and it looks to be an interesting match-up with two chargers and two Rollers on the other team. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I go around the side, which ...

Squishy revenge in Squad Tower Control (15-6, Carbon Roller Deco)

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

I've had my practice with the Blaster, and it's back to the Carbon Roller Deco, hopefully to make me feel a bit more competent. I think sending the Seeker past the inflatable does that right at the start. A small thing, but it pleases me. Of course, I hit the ...
