A few hits, but an ultimate miss in Rainmaker [11-5, Splat Charger]

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

Two good splats to start the battle. If only that Splat Bomb had rolled better, the second inkling may not have burst through the inksplosion of the first to splat me back. So it goes. The purple team grab the Rainmaker and, well, start raining ink on us. The explosions ...

Losing track of the Rainmaker [8(2)-5, Splat Charger]

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

We're on the back foot early in the battle. My Splat Bombs hit nothing, and my aim is as shoddy as always, so no surprise it's my squidmates stopping the Rainmaker, at least for long enough for me to roll a much better Splat Bomb in to the mess. We ...

This way and that in Rainmaker [17(7)-12, Blaster]

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

We come out on top of the initial fracas over the Rainmaker, but not me personally, and I super-jump back to support our first push. The Rainmaker is lost, re-exposed, and I grab it to make a dash. I'm not yet away of that short-cut on the ledge to jump ...

Keeping my nose clean in Turf War [1818p, 7(2)-1, N-ZAP '85]

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

Ranked is still a bit of a mess, so I'm playing a bit of Turf War to guarantee some coins to be multiplied, thanks to one of Crusty Sean's snacks. The N-ZAP '85 worked for me before, so I'm giving it another outing. I'm even being sensible and inking our ...

Making a fist of it in 3-inkling Rainmaker [10(1)-9, Blaster]

Monday, December 11th, 2017

Oops, we lose an inkling before the battle begins. That doesn't bode well for us, but we'll just have to do our best. More than in the Shipyard, the Blaster's lack of wall-inking ability is really felt on the Mainstage, as is my lack of decent ink-resistant clothing so far, ...

First Blaster battle is in Rainmaker [23(7)-7, Blaster]

Monday, December 11th, 2017

I've got access to the Blaster, a weapon I've used in Splatoon, so let's give it a go. Rainmaker may not be the best mode for the Blaster, but I believe every weapon is viable in every mode, so I'm willing to give it a blast. I've also got some ...

A clear run with the Rainmaker [7(1)-0, Carbon Roller]

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

Aww, I deny my tenacious little Autobomb a splat by getting it myself. But it's a pretty good start to the battle, and I grab the Rainmaker to give us an early lead. I think I'm getting a better grip on the new model Rainmaker, and I use it quite ...

Jumping past to help the Rainmaker [6(1)-2, Carbon Roller]

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

I'm sure I had a plan at the start of this battle, but who knows now what it was. At least the monitor saves me from the Rainmaker shield, and my Autobomb finds a target, but I struggle to get enough ink to splat the Rainmaker running past me. I get ...

Back to picking on chargers in Splat Zones [11(2)-1, Carbon Roller]

Saturday, December 9th, 2017

Who goes straight to the Splat Zones these days? Not me! Well, not in this battle. I head around the side, looking for the charger. But he's not on the perch. I hear him firing, though, and looking down sees an opportunity. I'm still getting the hang of what seems ...

Nearly clawing back the Splat Zones [19(5)-6, Carbon Roller]

Saturday, December 9th, 2017

I'm a little slow moving forwards to start with, mostly because when everyone rushes I tend to get splatted for no reason. This doesn't happen this time, but the purple team also capture the Splat Zones. Still, I can throw an Ink Storm over the Splat Zones, and move up ...
