Defence and attack in Rainmaker [10(2)-7, Sploosh-o-matic]

Saturday, February 17th, 2018

I wonder why that green inkling hasn't seemed to spot me, right up until he turns around to splat me. It shouldn't surprise me, I've done exactly the same thing before around that same corner to others. I don't make the same mistake when chasing the Roller, or when trying ...

Low tide causes the problems in Salmon Run [29-27-18, 19/418]

Saturday, February 17th, 2018

These wellies don't do much, but the Golden Egg wasn't really in a good place either. Otherwise, high tide in the fog doesn't cause too many problems. Sure, a Scrapper blocks my path, but that just stops me getting in to too much trouble. And the Drizzler somehow is splatted ...

Curling out the splats in Rainmaker [20(2)-10, Sploosh-o-matic]

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Look out, she's gonna blow! Nope, not fast enough, and we're already on a desperate defence as the pink team almost reach our podium. Not an ideal start. Getting caught out of range by the Splattershot isn't great either. I need to be smarter with the Sploosh-o-matic. I try going around ...

Stinging bubbles in Tower Control [8(3)-1, Clash Blaster]

Friday, February 16th, 2018

It's a strong start by the yellow team, and admittedly a bit weak by me. It's my first battle of the evening, after a few days off, but that's no excuse. My aim's generally that bad. Still, I keep the Dualies at bay with my Clash Blaster on my return, ...

Clash Blasting in Tower Control [9(1)-1, Clash Blaster]

Thursday, February 15th, 2018

I hit 30th level! That gives me access to the Clash Blaster, which I have been waiting to get my grubby little mitts on. Tower Control seems like a good place to test it out, so here we go, with my second battle with the weapon. That Splat Bomb throw ...

In the pink in Splat Zones [10-1, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Thursday, February 15th, 2018

A fairly cautious approach keeps me unsplatted again, as the other inklings all battle rather more directly for the Splat Zones. My squidmates take the upper hand, which lets me sneak in around the side and start causing my own disruption, helped by an Ink Storm. That incomplete patch of ...

Applying pressure in Splat Zones [11(3)-3, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

That charger's going to cause us problems, if we don't discourage him from staying on that perch. It's a good thing I have Chicken Bombs! The first one I throw seems to have been dodge, but as I throw another the charger is splatted. Those are tenacious little buggers. That ...

Hitting back at the green team in Splat Zones [10(6)-7, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

There's no rush to get to the Splat Zones. Too much happens at once for it to be useful. And you can let the other team grab the Splat Zones if it means it concentrates them in a small area. In this case, my squidmates' keen natures lets us split ...

3 seconds to Salmon Run [28-17-28, 10/571]

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

Hey, those three names have something in common. I hope I'm not going to embarrass myself in front of a cohesive group. I don't think I will with the Sploosh-o-matic, and I show off how I know how to easily ink a path up a wall before the wave starts. ...

Second ever S+ battle goes well in Splat Zones [7-0, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

I have never been S+ before. My first battle doesn't go so well, going an inkling down, but I was encouraged by what I saw. I'm sticking with the Custom Splattershot Jr for its utility, and will try not to rush in to situations recklessly, which is pretty much what ...
