Taking it most of the way in Rainmaker (1-1, Carbon Roller Deco)

Sunday, September 24th, 2017

Now that I can squid under the closing gate reliably, I am determined to make this side route work for the Carbon Roller Deco. The Seeker this time takes a really nice line, letting me recoup ink and splatting the wall to squid up. I hit my head, which isn't ...

Having a splatty Rainmaker battle (18-7, Carbon Roller Deco)

Sunday, September 24th, 2017

Trying to get behind the blue inklings is probably doomed from the moment the Luna Blaster saw my Seeker trail. Doesn't stop me trying, but I'm not always the smartest. Coming back with a bit more caution just makes me look confused. I miss one inkling passing me, and I ...

Hitting the flank in Rainmaker (13-5, Carbon Roller Deco)

Saturday, September 23rd, 2017

The battle to burst the Rainmaker's Shield is tight, the decisive moment being the Splash-o-matic's Suction Bomb Rush charging, which poses problems for us by itself. I push up when it looks safe, hoping to catch up with the Rainmaker scooting off down the side. But it's not quite safe ...

Fighting against a sea of unsporting green ink in Rainmaker (17-9, Carbon Roller Deco)

Saturday, September 23rd, 2017

Look at all those Seekers! It's beautiful. There's a Suction Bomb too, not one of ours, and I just about get out of its way before it explodes, unlike a couple of green inklings and the Rainmaker's Shield. But my stay is temporary, and I turn back only to be ...

Seeking the dunk in Rainmaker (12-5, Carbon Roller Deco)

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

Yes! I'm not the only one who has to take time to aim a Seeker. I don't know whose makes it past the block, but one is all that was needed. I head right around the back, just about catching one inkling by surprise, and roll up on the other ...

Forging through the ink in Rainmaker (6-3, Carbon Roller Deco)

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

It's tough aiming straight, even with Seekers. At least I don't get in the way of our charger, and my Seeker almost reaches its limit before exploding, all of which lets us move up quickly. I hit the side, as I tend to do, and get a nice early splat, ...

Accidentally picking on the Carbon Roller in Splat Zones (8-0, Carbon Roller Deco)

Monday, September 18th, 2017

I don't aggressively plunge myself in to a silly situation to start this battle, and I survive more than fifteen seconds. I should hang back and be sensible more often. I send out Seekers to make ink tracks, and try to keep myself safe. We lose the Splat Zones to ...

A little patience sometimes helps in Splat Zones (12-4, Carbon Roller Deco)

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

There's a charger on the other team, so my starting gambit is to head right around the back to see if I can splat them on their perch. She's not on the perch, though, and before I drop down to catch her from behind, a squidmate has done it first. ...

Getting off the back foot in Splat Zones (9-5, Carbon Roller Deco)

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

My standard gambit on Camp Triggerfish Splat Zones works smoothly, and an opportunistic flick gets my first splat, no doubt surprising the purple inkling coming over the wall. With no opposition, I push forwards early, crossing the bridge and dropping down on what looks like an easy splat, but the ...

By a Nozzlenose in Splat Zones (15-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

Those Sprinklers are tenacious. Long-range weapons also have an obvious advantage in Camp Triggerfish Splat Zones. I doubt my Carbon Roller's flick would reach across the gap at all. But we play to our strengths, so I keep the local turf inked as my squidmates head off to engage the ...
