Splatting all around in Rainmaker (13-4, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

Phew, no one wants the Rainmaker! At least, no one in purple. I squid around the side, on a whim because I'm back in A Rank battles, and find a sole green inkling shooting the Rainmaker's Shield, who is easy to splat, then ink a bit of a path below ...

Splats but no strategy in Rainmaker (9-4, Splatterscope)

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

I'm on another losing streak, so why not pull out the Splatterscope for some practice? It's good to see that squidmates still pointlessly jump where squidding would do, and block my shot up the building meant to help them, but so it goes. It's also good to see that my aim ...

Turning the battle around in Splat Zones (11-3, Tri-slosher)

Friday, April 14th, 2017

The Tri-slosher and Flounder Heights go together well for me. Splat Zones is more hit-and-miss, though. It's a good start to this battle, with a conventional move to the top of the Heights, capture our Splat Zone, and I chuck a Disruptor over the top to hopefully frustrate a green ...

Inky support in Tower Control (9-1, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

The purple team are off to a flying start! Or one inkling is, which isn't quite enough to do much with the Tower, and we chase her off pretty quickly. I wonder where the other purple inklings are. Just slightly behind their first, it seems. I climb up the Heights again ...

Finally taking control in Tower Control (9-5, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

I'm not sure I approve of the trade at the start of this battle. I am trying to be cautious, inking some turf, and not getting in to trouble. But the number of times I am splatted by falling ink is getting on my nerves a bit. Still, at least ...

Late splatting in Tower Control (9-2, Tri-slosher)

Friday, March 24th, 2017

I get to the top of Flounder Heights nice and quickly again, and toss a Disruptor across the gap to try to catch any advancing inklings. Doesn't seem like I hit anything, but a purple inkling jumps across in to my Tri-sloshing! My early dash means there isn't quite enough ink ...

All around the tower in Tower Control (7-3, Tri-slosher)

Friday, March 24th, 2017

Hello E-litre 3K on the other team! What can I do about you? Not much, if I get Disrupted in front of a Dynamo Roller. And not much if I don't know where you are, either. And still not much if I don't splat the Dynamo Roller in time, refusing to ...

Bubblers make for good riding in Tower Control (5-3, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Mmm, Tri-slosher, Flounder Heights, and Tower Control. Can battling get any better? Getting an early splat on a Carbon Roller is pretty good! Getting a delayed splat back is not as good, but it happens. Lobbing the occasional Splat Bomb over a ledge doesn't seem like compelling times to me, but ...

Comeback kings in Rainmaker (9-5, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

I get myself in to a sticky spot at the start of the battle. I think a green inkling is going to squid up the wall, but before that happens I get some blasts of ink from behind. I can do nothing else but squid through the grate, which puts ...

So nearly dunking the Rainmaker (8-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Monday, March 13th, 2017

I kinda pick up the Rainmaker by accident at the start of this battle. I notice the inkling squidding in the ink on one of the columns on the yellow side, and go to flick him off with my Carbon Roller. To be fair, I do exactly that, but I ...
