Hectic Splat Zones (12-6, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, July 15th, 2017

Heading around the side for some quick flanking action works better when I don't flop against some uninked wall. Even so, there's no one at the top when I get there. I decide to go even further around the side, and bump in to an inkling immediately, and we dance ...

Overcoming the odds in Splat Zones (5-9, Classic Squiffer)

Friday, July 14th, 2017

I've been tempted to use the Squiffer, to see if I can. Naturally, I can't to start with, and as the weapon requires better aim than a blaster and is less safe than a longer-range charger, I'm not sure I'll ever be good with it. But maybe I can bring ...

Walking in to bombs in Splat Zones (9-3, Carbon Roller Deco)

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

I quite like this side route to the top of Flounder Heights with the Carbon Roller. It gets me in to position quickly and offers a nice long stretch of turf for my Seekers. And, yeah, maybe I get confused about that inkling being on my team, but you have ...

Rushing to the podium in Rainmaker (1-1, Carbon Roller Deco)

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

Space gets a bit cramped as we rush out of our base, but that's not why I head to the side. I go that way to see if I can better catch any inklings coming over the wall to flank us, and because my Seekers can work well from over ...

Getting pushed back in Rainmaker (13-6, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

Dammit, the charger has gone from his perch by the time I get there, probably because the teal team have the Rainmaker. I then spend what feels like ages just looking for another inkling. But at least I find three at once, including the charger. Hopefully that makes up for ...

Poor start turned around in Rainmaker (9-4, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

Well, that dive past the Rainmaker doesn't work so well, even if I do get past a Splash Wall. And my attempt to approach the Rainmaker from behind is scuppered by an aware inkling. At least my Bubbler protects me to burst the Rainmaker out of its shield, which would ...

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 ...
