Splatted back down to A in Rainmaker (14-7, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

I don't think I'm a bad player, but the way some battles go it's hard to convince myself otherwise. I'm not convinced my play-style changes significantly between battles, but the results can vary wildly. Still, I get the occasional moment that is definitely lucky, like apparently being in exactly the ...

Taking a contrary route to the Rainmaker (5-1, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

I do like going around the back. It doesn't always work, admittedly, and I need to be more aware of when I'm needed closer to the objective, but I like to think I help more than hinder. Mahi-Mahi Resort, despite it's puddles, offers some nice routes. I don't go around the ...

Splatting to the podium in Rainmaker (10-3, Carbon Roller Deco)

Monday, April 17th, 2017

My Seeker is on the edge leading off this battle, but it's a straight line that I can follow. I hold back, not wanting to get mired in the initial tussle for the Rainmaker, where the Carbon Roller really doesn't want to be, and push forwards only when it looks ...

Splatting support in Rainmaker (14-2, Carbon Roller Deco)

Sunday, April 16th, 2017

There's really only one way to go at the start of a battle on Mahi-Mahi Resort with a Carbon Roller Deco, and that's behind a launched Seeker, straight ahead. It works better when it goes straight too, but never mind that. And never mind about the Killer Wail splatting the ...

Superb support in Rainmaker (5-0, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, April 15th, 2017

The Mahi-Mahi Resort water level doesn't drop immediately in Rainmaker, only when one team gets close enough to the podium. That makes the route around the side a little more hazardous and open to being stopped. I go that way anyway, because I enjoy it so much. I get to a ...

Splatting around the resort in Rainmaker (15-9, Tri-slosher)

Friday, March 31st, 2017

That E-litre 3K on the yellow poses a credible threat across most of Mahi-Mahi Resort. I head around the watery side route to see if I can sneak behind him. Not playing Turf War, I don't come this way often when the water level is high, so it's a bit ...

Desperately holding off the knockout victory in Rainmaker (8-7, Splatterscope)

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

Dropping out of S Rank to A+, and a losing streak pushing me to the lower ranks, at least gives me the opportunity to pick up the Splatterscope again without thinking I'll be a bit useless. I'm okay with a charger, but not great. Kinda A+ Rank in quality. Let's ...

Seeking the knockout in Splat Zones (8-3, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Phew, what a losing streak! From mid-S Rank down to half-way A+. But that's okay, really. I thought I was doing well by staying in S Rank this time, but it doesn't really matter that I've dropped down again. I can still have some fun. Maybe I am back in A+ ...

Sloshing and dodging in Tower Control (12-8, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, March 25th, 2017

Okay, that jump is further than it looks. And that inkling is further away than my Tri-slosher can reach. And the E-litre 3K moves out of my range too soon. Still, I'm unsplatted, and make the sensible move not to chase the E-litre 3K when she knows I'm coming. That lets ...

Pushing for the knockout in Tower Control (7-6, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, March 25th, 2017

I'm a little less keen to rush to the centre of Mahi-Mahi Resort and my inevitable doom in this battle. It almost pays off, as it looks like I miss the initial tussle over the Tower, except the Tower isn't touched, and I am still splatted shortly after I hit ...
