Fun at the resort in Tower Control (7-5, Grim Range Blaster)

Sunday, August 20th, 2017

Both teams gauge the other to start the battle, not committing too much ink forwards, and it seems like we come out on top with splats and turf. When the purple team are definitely two inklings down, I climb on to the Tower and start pushing it forwards. Some forwards ...

More splats for Marie in Splat Zones (6-4, Tri-slosher)

Friday, July 21st, 2017

Green versus purple. I think I can make this more of a partisan battle than usual, just by thinking I'm fighting on the side of Marie in a daytime Splatfest. To that end, I nip along the side and around the back, and although I don't catch anyone on a ...

Luck goes both ways in Splat Zones (6-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Friday, July 21st, 2017

I aim for the short-cut to the Splat Zones with my Seeker, and get pretty close from that angle. A bit of flicking and I'm right there, really quickly, just about wishing that maybe I had dragged my heels a bit. A squidmate also gets splatted pretty quickly, and I ...

Whizzing around the Splat Zones (7-0, Carbon Roller Deco)

Sunday, July 9th, 2017

I've been trying some shooters recently, and have had a bunch of quite frustrating battles perhaps as a result. I don't know if I'm just a bit rubbish at the moment, if Splat Zones continues to bring out the more dedicated squids, or if I am just unpracticed with shooters. ...

Close call Splat Zones (11-8, Splash-o-matic)

Saturday, July 8th, 2017

It occurs to me that I haven't battled with a shooter for ages, preferring instead the less traditional weapons. But I used to, so I'm going back to them for a bit. The obvious first choice is the Splash-o-matic, the first weapon I mained. My strategies don't really change much, ...

Squidding around the Splat Zones (10-6, Tri-slosher)

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Even without a charger on the other team, I immediately head the long and perilous route to get behind the perch. I find an inkling there and splat him, so it wasn't such a bad idea. If only I could have got out of the way of the stupidly geared ...

Seeking here and there in Rainmaker (15-7, Carbon Roller Deco)

Sunday, May 28th, 2017

After a cautious start, I think I make a decent pounce at a target, but my flicking either isn't quite good enough, or an inkling kitted out for run speed is just a bit too quick for me. I pick my moment well on my return, though, even if it ...

Splatty Rainmaker goes nowhere (14-5, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

I see that Hyrda Splatling, and stupidly think it's a good idea to find and splat them immediately. So it goes that I run in to a Nozzlenose. Dunno how that happened. I see how my next splatting happens, though. I have a great idea to ambush an Inkzooka from ...

Doing what we can with an inkling down in Rainmaker (12-5, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

Look at me go! I do enjoy my bucket. It also lets me slosh the Rainmaker's Shield from safely behind a wall. Not that it matters this time, as our green ink overwhelms the purple, and it is a purple inkling who feels the splat as a result. I'm so ...

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 ...
