Eventually being useful in Rainmaker (5-2, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Trying to jump around the Rainmaker to engage the yellow inklings doesn't quite go to plan, but at least I'm safely knocked to the ground. Or so I think. Maybe a less direct route would be better. A squidmate agrees, although I am now quite aware that the yellow team ...

Showing a bit of form in Splat Zones (9-5, Hero Charger Replica)

Sunday, May 21st, 2017

It's taken a few battles, but I think I'm getting back in to the swing of aiming a charger. Well, as much as I was before. Maybe a little less. But I feel pretty good when I get a good splat from an awkward angle, realise a Roller is coming ...

Some hits, some misses, in Splat Zones (7-4, Hero Charger Replica)

Saturday, May 20th, 2017

I'm sticking with an unscoped charger for the moment, but doesn't the Hero Charger Replica have an extra two pixels range? Maybe, but even if it doesn't, it's pretty much the same as the Splat Charger, and it looks different. I'm still getting used to not zooming in, and having ...

Being a bit better in Tower Control (13-4, Carbon Roller Deco)

Friday, May 12th, 2017

I've had another run of mediocre battles. I am simply losing my chill, forgetting what I'm trying to learn. I realise this and resolve to do better. I think I achieve that here. I lay down some ink and pause to assess the situation. I get a bit lucky getting ...

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 ...
