Defence and attack in Rainmaker [10(2)-7, Sploosh-o-matic]

Saturday, February 17th, 2018

I wonder why that green inkling hasn't seemed to spot me, right up until he turns around to splat me. It shouldn't surprise me, I've done exactly the same thing before around that same corner to others. I don't make the same mistake when chasing the Roller, or when trying ...

Applying pressure in Splat Zones [11(3)-3, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

That charger's going to cause us problems, if we don't discourage him from staying on that perch. It's a good thing I have Chicken Bombs! The first one I throw seems to have been dodge, but as I throw another the charger is splatted. Those are tenacious little buggers. That ...

Second ever S+ battle goes well in Splat Zones [7-0, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

I have never been S+ before. My first battle doesn't go so well, going an inkling down, but I was encouraged by what I saw. I'm sticking with the Custom Splattershot Jr for its utility, and will try not to rush in to situations recklessly, which is pretty much what ...

Holding the hump in Front Rolling Splatfest [2163p, 7(2)-1, Custom Splatteshot Jr]

Wednesday, February 7th, 2018

There aren't many battles to be had with the back-rollers. Even so, I want my super sea snails, and that means becoming Queen of Toilet Rolls, so the battles are contested. Despite the known importance of inking your base, an earlier battle in Sturgeon Shipyard shows that getting to the ...

Finding the right opportunity in Rainmaker [13(5)-7, Sploosh-o-matic]

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

In a display of excellent timing and positioning, I drop right in to the Roller's flick. You can't teach that. I'm not quite sure how the Roller splatted me next time, though, but I at least I also somehow survived the Rainmaker's shield exploding. But that Roller catches me again, ...

Sneaking some splats in Rainmaker [17(3)-4, Sploosh-o-matic]

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

That green inkling's move is easy to anticipate, opening up the centre of the Pump Track for me. I have to avoid a Curling Bomb Rush, though, but lurking on the lower track opens opportunity to splat the charger, which is pretty satisfying. I then make a similar mistake to ...

Splooshing it up in Rainmaker [17(2)-6, Sploosh-o-matic]

Sunday, January 28th, 2018

Back to the Sploosh-o-matic for some Rainmaker, and this time with a nifty Ninja Squid jacket. I like it from the start, the Curling Bomb being Seeker-like, and squidding around the edge to patrol for inklings to splat. I even hit the flank to make a potential path for the ...

A little Turf War [2137p, 5-4, Sploosh-o-matic]

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

So I was stalking CallieYuga (see recent Salmon Runs) and saw him as available when I poked my nose in to the 'Friends' section of the lobby. It turns out to be relatively easy to join other inklings in battles, if the timing is right and you don't care about ...

Shown no mercy in Splat Zones [13(6)-5, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Friday, January 19th, 2018

Uh-oh, our Rapid Blaster isn't moving. Hopefully it's just temporary, and there's not much to be done but press on. Splatting the Inkjet with my Ink Storm keeps my spirits up early, and although I avoid a Splashdown I run in to the inkling that comes out of it. Heading ...

Losing our grip on the Splat Zones [20(10)-6, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

My Robot Chicken does me proud to start the battle, as I almost get stuck between two inklings. Instead, I get an Ink Storm out of it. I'm also starting out quite sensibly, being mobile, not chasing needless splats, and inking anything I can. Keeping the Robot Chickens flying when ...
