Teamwork wins in Splat Zones (15-3, Carbon Roller Deco)

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

There's some good conflict in and around the Splat Zones to start the battle. They turn purple first, but we get some splats and make the Splat Zones green pretty quickly. Rolling back around and seeing an inkling squid in to the ink lets me get a rare squish with ...

No shooters, please, it's Splat Zones (10-3, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

The other team has brought a shooter to a non-shooter battle. That's not very sporting. I also see the Hydra Splatling. I think I can move more quickly than those weapons and get the drop on them, so slosh my way across the Splat Zones and am pleased when I ...

Sliding off in Tower Control (8-3, Grim Range Blaster)

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

I think about hitting the left flank, but jink to the centre so that I don't get in the way of our Splatterscope. That works for me anyway, and I help hold our turf in the early stages of the battle. With the Tower neutralised, I hop on and start ...

Turning the Tower around in Tower Control (8-3, Grim Range Blaster)

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

Two N-ZAPs and a slosher on the other team makes me worried, more so because I'm giving the Grim Range Blaster another go for Tower Control, which requires me to aim. I decide to hit the flank first, because why not, and although no one is on the container when ...

Having a blast in the museum in Tower Control (12-7, Grim Range Blaster)

Monday, October 16th, 2017

That E-litre 3K could pose us problems. I head to the flank, wondering if she'll come down that way, but I find a different inkling. It's perhaps a little reckless to squid up to the ledge towards an inkling that knows I'm coming, but aiming directly down a short straight ...

Sloshing over the Splat Zones (11-2, Tri-slosher)

Monday, October 16th, 2017

I take the long route to the Bluefin Depot Splat Zones again, hoping to gain an indirect advantage. My careful sloshing, trying not to spill outside of my chosen path, lets me spy a purple inkling trying the same tactic as me, and surprise him. From there, I can work ...

Circling the Splat Zones (9-0, Tri-slosher)

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

Taking the longest route away from the Splat Zones seems unhelpful, but there can be so much ink flying in to the Splat Zones directly at the start of the battle that my short-ranged bucket and me don't stand much of a chance. And heading to flank the Splat Zones ...

Making up for a mistake in Rainmaker (16-5, Tri-slosher)

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

I've got my eyes on that E-litre 3K, but, given her range, getting to her may be tricky. Hitting the flank seems like the best option, hopefully avoiding her gaze as I cross the Heights, and bags me an early splat from my quick movement. I consider continuing the long ...

Going most of the way with the Rainmaker (17-7, Carbon Roller Deco)

Saturday, October 14th, 2017

I'm not quite sure what's a good opening for a Carbon Roller in the Museum for Rainmaker, so I just ink some turf before deciding to move forwards to burst the Rainmaker. The green team are more organised in that respect, though, but at least I can stop their first ...

So much splatting in Tower Control (22-8, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, October 14th, 2017

A bit of caution and turf control seems like a good way to start any battle. Moving back from the Dynamo Roller is just good advice in general. My squidmate splats her, though, giving me the opportunity to move up. The Splat Roller tries to get away, and following her ...
