Teamwork in Tower Control (8-4, Grim Range Blaster)

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

My caution at the start of the battle pays off nicely. I get a splat instead of rushing in to being splatted, I spot the super-jumper coming in and wait for them to hop on to the Tower instead of being the target, and I clear the Tower and splat ...

Splats don't mean victory in Tower Control (6-5, Grim Range Blaster)

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

Rapid Blaster beats my slow Grim Range Blaster, when boxes obscure the range. I should have stayed further back, I suppose. And already there's blue ink accumulating near our base. I take a cautious approach back, cautious enough to be out of range of the Roller heading to the Tower. ...

Rusty blasting in Tower Control (9-4, Grim Range Blaster)

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

Avoiding the obvious bombs lobbed on to the Tower and then bagging a double-splat is a good way to start the battle. I don't even mind that I'm splatted myself immediately. I don't think I've used a blaster for a while, so this may be as good as it gets. ...

Inkling down, a bit rusty, and a touch of lag in Tower Control (16-6, Grim Range Blaster)

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017

Erk, inkling down! That doesn't bode well. Neither does missing a straight shot at the turf. I swear I shot a second time but got the timing wrong, and didn't just squid on uninked turf. But I did throw that Burst Bomb right on to a grate. But it can't ...

Having a blast in the Museum in Tower Control (18-8, Grim Range Blaster)

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017

My Burst Bomb-blast doesn't quite work, but at least I pull my range on the Luna Blaster to avoided being splatted back. And I am a bit more brutal when first clearing the Tower. Even I can't miss at point blank range. I don't get far, as we're still feeling ...

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 ...

Almost there in Tower Control (16-7, Grim Range Blaster)

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

I don't rush for the Tower, to be a little more sensible than usual, but still rush to the heart of the dome. A Burst Bomb and indirect hit don't do much together, maybe hitting different inklings, but somehow I remain unmolested for long enough to get two indirect hits ...

Some direct hits in Tower Control (14-8, Grim Range Blaster)

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

Whee, I remember Burst Bombs at the start of the battle, when I'm under no pressure. Rushing to the Tower still probably isn't a great idea, though, putting myself at the centre of attention. I have to hop off pretty quickly, to avoid a Splat Bomb, and get a couple ...
