Being a menace in Tower Control (14-5, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

I wonder if the Bento Splatterscope will be on the obvious perch to start the battle. And I wonder if I can get around to it unscathed. Yep! I hop over the perch to look for inklings in the sea of purple ink, and almost bump in to one. I ...

Forward support in Tower Control (9-2, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

Less forward and more sideways to start with. I kind of saunter over there too, not really rushing, both wanting to build a bit of charge in to my Bubbler and wanting to see if anyone is coming on the teal team. Yes, one is, and a Disruptor catches him ...

Needing a bit more range in Rainmaker (16-6, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

That E-litre 3K on the other team makes me take the short-cut over the ramp to see if I can catch her out. I'm easily distracted by another inkling, though, particularly one that doesn't spy me. Following that line gets me an easy splat, and gets me under the laser ...

Lucky super-jump to the Rainmaker (7-5, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

Checking my map as I head down the side doesn't see ink coming towards the ramp, so I ignore that area and go towards the Rainmaker. I go past the Rainmaker when I see the Splatterscope on the perch. She spots me, I dodge her shot, she dodges my bucket. ...

Making amends in Rainmaker (9-5, Tri-slosher)

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

I make a beeline to the other side of the map, luckily dodging a Splat Bomb on my way, to find the Splat Charger on his perch, but he's not there. Never mind, a quick inking of the podium, probably pointless, and I hop over the perch to prevent the ...

Blue splat marks all around the Splat Zones (9-1, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, June 17th, 2017

I head to the left and see a blue tell-tale trail of ink heading to the blue team's ramp. I don't make that last slosh, to not give myself away, and get an easy first splat. From there to the Splat Zones, and a few sloshes upwards gets the next ...

Bombs be my downfall in Splat Zones (10-2, Carbon Roller Deco)

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

Coming up against a a .52 Gal that splats me reliably with one hit, a Carbon Roller that splats me after I splat him, and a Splattershot Jr, of all weapons, that splats me a second after I splat him, I have a stint down in B+. I come straight ...

Double dunking the Rainmaker (12-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Monday, May 8th, 2017

It's a standard start to a Rainmaker battle in Kelp Dome with the Carbon Roller Deco. My squidding goes a bit squiffy as I check to see if an inkling is coming over the ramp. Yes, it seems they are, so I prepare myself. But they don't come, so I ...

What were they waiting for in Rainmaker (15-4, Carbon Roller Deco)

Sunday, May 7th, 2017

A normal start to this Rainmaker battle has my launching Seekers to ink turf and squid through. I see Seekers coming my way too, which will be interesting. I think I miss an inkling squidding behind one Seeker, but maybe not when the inkling I splat launches one. Another inkling ...

Going for the charger in Rainmaker (13-5, Carbon Roller Deco)

Saturday, May 6th, 2017

What do I have against chargers? If I see one on the other team, they will almost certainly be my focus for most of the battle, particularly an E-litre 3K. Maybe I take it more as a challenge, to out-manoeuvre them and get under their long range. Maybe I see ...
