Messy splatting in Tower Control (10-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

I'm holding my own in S Rank, which makes a nice change. It makes me feel like I'm improving. Maybe the Carbon Roller Deco is helping me out, or trying to learn it is helping improve my battling. It doesn't seem like a huge improvement in my battling when I find ...

Getting some splats in Tower Control (10-7, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

A decent start to this battle, albeit defensive. But that's the best way a Carbon Roller Deco can start a battle. Any more aggressive and you're just asking to be the first splat. We defend our corridor, clear the Tower, and take control. Not for long, but it's something. A bit ...

Taking back control in Tower Control (8-9, Carbon Roller Deco)

Monday, March 20th, 2017

I think I'm getting the hang of the Carbon Roller Deco. That's not to say I'm a better Splatoon player, though, as no weapon magically makes you good, so I will still make bad decisions and mistakes. And sometimes a Krak-On Splat Roller will just splat you wherever you are. Inking ...

Trying to find a groove in Tower Control (10-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Monday, March 20th, 2017

Tower Control and Blackbelly Skatepark. The mode and map that probably work least well for the Carbon Roller Deco and its Seekers. But that's okay! I bet I can do something. I remember previous attempts at squidding over a ledge at an inkling shooting right at me, and discard them as ...

Good start, but muddy middle to Splat Zones (9-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Sunday, March 19th, 2017

Well, the battle isn't good for me right at the start, the bit where I manage to get surrounded by three green inklings. But after that, a Seeker finds an inkling not wanting to pause a Suction Bomb Rush, and a squidmate prevents my getting splatted which lets me launch ...

Some misses, some hits, lots of fun in Splat Zones (9-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Sunday, March 19th, 2017

Two Carbon Roller Decos! How can we possibly lose this battle? We can't! Let's just get on with it. Okay, first splat to the purple Splat-on Roller. Must be luck. And, sure, i don't last long the next time either, but my Seeker lives on long enough to get a splat, ...

Seeker magic in Splat Zones (13-11, Carbon Roller Deco)

Saturday, March 18th, 2017

Still in S Rank, and I'm sticking with the Carbon Roller Deco, just in case it's this change of weapon that is making me better. Probably not! I still feel like I'm mostly mucking around with it, but I'm having fun, and that's what I'm here for. Always thank your squidmate ...

Helping where I can in Splat Zones (11-9, Carbon Roller Deco)

Saturday, March 18th, 2017

Practice makes perfect! I make it up that small wall in Urchin Underpass really easily this time. The Seeker doesn't do much from the ledge, and I am harried off by yellow ink, but that's okay. I go the other way around to help out squidmates in trouble, and do ...

Stayin' (mostly) alive in Splat Zones (7-1, Carbon Roller Deco)

Friday, March 17th, 2017

With my Seekers, the side route in Urchin Underpass looks more attractive for the starting surge. Less attractive when I still haven't quite got the hang of the Carbon Roller flick and struggle to get up a tiny wall. I didn't have this trouble with the Tri-slosher. That was a good ...

Doing my best in S-Rank Splat Zones (7-5, Carbon Roller Deco)

Friday, March 17th, 2017

A Seeker down the centre should help my squidmates heading that way, but I think my Carbon Roller Deco will do more good along the side route, where Seekers can pose a threat to the opposition directly. I am suitably cautious, not rushing in to anything and holding back from apparent ...
