Applying pressure in Rainmaker (8-7, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, February 18th, 2017

Oop, I nearly get too close to the Rainmaker's shield at the start, but I hang back and nick it off the teal team to get an early, but slight lead. They come back immediately, beating my measly metres, and I both show some restraint to get a splat, and ...

Saving it at the end in Rainmaker (10-8, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, February 18th, 2017

I don't think it benefits me and my bucket to get anywhere fast on Hammerhead Bridge in Rainmaker. I slow down a bit, inking turf, building my Special's charge, and still get caught out by an inkling. I've never been a fan of jumping either. At least I survive the next ...

Hits and misses in Rainmaker (11-9, Tri-slosher)

Friday, February 17th, 2017

Back in S Rank, woe is me. But I'll try to stay optimistic. For this venture, I'll stick with my Tri-slosher, and see if I can hold my own on occasion with the bucket. The battle doesn't start well, as I am easily spotted by two inklings as I try to ...

Sharing the splats in Tower Control (9-4, Splatterscope)

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

I think I like Hammerhead Bridge, but as much as there are multiple routes and levels all over the place, I never am as comfortable as on my favourite Flounders Heights. But Tower Control on the Bridge should be good for the Splatterscope, and it's no surprise to see a ...

A few more splats in S Rank Splat Zones (7-6, Kelp Splatterscope)

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

One last battle in S Rank where I get more than a couple of splats, and leave with my dignity. I am pretty aggressive to start with, pushing right across to the other side of the map. I get distracted by what I thought was an inkling, but is just a ...

Not a bad first Splat Zones in S Rank (3-1, Kelp Splatterscope)

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

I'm tempting fate by switching the Splatterscope for my S Rank battles. I'm tempting fate to kick me straight back down to A+, with my blessing. Instead, it inspires me to take a route new to me on Hammerhead Bridge, and get an early splat. I probably shouldn't have pushed so ...

Going the distance in Splat Zones (5-1, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, January 21st, 2017

One early splat, almost averted by getting under the Splash Wall, but also cutting me off from an escape route I'd never take, and that's it for my being splatted. That doesn't happen often. As is usual for me, I tend to ignore the Splat Zones and bit and go searching ...

Up and under in Splat Zones (3-1, Tri-slosher)

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

I've had some initial experience with the Splat Roller, and swapped to the Splatterscope for a bit to have some fun for a bit. That doesn't work at all, with an excellent E-litre 3K on the other team denying me any time to find my aim. Let's see what I ...

Doing a bit better with a Roller in Splat Zones (4-1, Splat Roller)

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

I do much better in my second battle with the Splat Roller. Admittedly, having an excellent team behind me to take up my huge slack helps greatly. I hope they didn't notice me trying to squid on un-inked turf. I do know how to squid, honest. I miss the jump-flick on ...

Trying a Roller in Splat Zones (7-10, Splat Roller)

Sunday, January 1st, 2017

I've been splatted by Carbon Rollers quite a lot recently, and I was reluctant to say how powerful they seem before I took time to use one to see for myself. So I used one, and it does take some skill. The splash from the flick is really small, so ...
