Ninja Squidding around the Splat Zones (12-3, Carbon Roller Deco)

Saturday, April 29th, 2017

I've had a string of battles where we've been overrun, and I'm feeling a bit tense. The early splat after an unstable connection warning is not helping. But I keep a stiff upper lip and battle on, for the team. I shift to a defensive role immediately, and see that we ...

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 ...

Splatty Rainmaker mayhem (10-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Monday, April 24th, 2017

As before, I'm sticking around in S Rank. Not quite as before, I'm loitering at the very bottom, not quite losing enough to drop out, not quite winning enough to feel like I deserve to be here at the moment. Even so, there is the occasional battle where I am ...

Getting a few splats in S Rank Tower Control (12-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

My current stint in S Rank battles is like most others. I get here and face the slow but inevitable decline back to A+, but thankfully with the occasional battle where I'm not dragging the rest of the team down. I swap over to the Carbon Roller Deco to try ...

Basic Splat Zones (4-0, Carbon Roller Deco)

Friday, April 21st, 2017

I want to like Saltspray Rig, and think it a good map. I've had some fun battles in Turf War here, and it's the only map that isn't rotationally symmetrical. But it has a bad reputation in all Ranked modes, so much that only Splat Zones are played here any ...

Splats don't mean much in Splat Zones (17-6, Carbon Roller Deco)

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

I think I need more swim speed to make that jump to the central platform at the start of the battle. But never mind, the Splat Zones are right there, and I should be inking them anyway. I need to avoid a bit of attention first, although I'm not sure ...

Taking a contrary route to the Rainmaker (5-1, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

I do like going around the back. It doesn't always work, admittedly, and I need to be more aware of when I'm needed closer to the objective, but I like to think I help more than hinder. Mahi-Mahi Resort, despite it's puddles, offers some nice routes. I don't go around the ...

Tough lead to overcome in Rainmaker (11-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Not a great start to this battle. My first Seeker is okay, the second detonates too soon, and the lack of ink in my tank because of this restricts my options. I have to sit back and watch what occurs. I think I have a good opportunity with a Roller ...

Splats for everyone in Rainmaker (14-5, Carbon Roller Deco)

Monday, April 17th, 2017

There doesn't look to be a good Seeker path from the base on Hammerhead Bridge Rainmaker. But the Seeker glides over the podium nicely, and continues over the grating, even if it doesn't ink anything. It works a lot better than my second, rather lacklustre Seeker. But let's move on ...
