Autobombs and Ink Storms in Splat Zones [14(3)-3, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Saturday, January 20th, 2018

I'm wondering where that E-litre 4K will set up, and hit the flank to lob an opportunistic Robot Chicken her way. It doesn't find anything, but moving up to the Splat Zones level finds the telltale shot of ink, and I try to combine Ink Storm and Robot Chicken to ...

The quick and the splatted in Splat Zones [16(6)-1, Splattershot Jr]

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018

I get a bit lucky against the Aerospray looking for me, but luckier still when the Jet Squelcher drops next to me. I don't think he saw me. The Roller is a gift, though, and I finish off the set by venturing in to the Splat Zones, before cycling back ...

Too blue Splat Zones [26(7)-5, Carbon Roller]

Friday, December 29th, 2017

Okay, maybe I'm still getting the hang of the vertical flick. I almost never jumped whilst flicking before, so I'm learning fresh. I like that my first splat comes from an Autobomb, though, particularly as I had forgotten about it whilst trying to flick for a splat. I keep going ...

Not just Autobombs in Splat Zones [13(4)-3, Carbon Roller]

Thursday, December 28th, 2017

I let my Autobombs do the work to start the battle, but it's a bit lame and I know it. It also doesn't help maintain the Splat Zones effectively, so I move in, and get splatted. That serves me right for holding back. I don't rush in next time either, ...

Eventually finding the splats in Splat Zones [11(2)-3, Carbon Roller]

Thursday, December 28th, 2017

The orange team's shooters make a commanding presence in the Splat Zones, and my Carbon Roller's can't get close enough for a conventional splat, and its vertical flick needs better aim than I can muster most of the time. Circumstances look a bit grim already, with the orange team half-way ...

Skirting the Splat Zones [9(3)-1, Splattershot Jr]

Wednesday, December 27th, 2017

I'm really quite enjoying battling with the Splattershot Jr, as well as being more supportive than aggressive. I'm also glad that I practiced sticking to walls, as it comes in quite handy against Tenta Missiles. And when I'm spotted at one point on the wall, I quite sensibly move to ...

One-point Rainmaker with a three-point shot [16(4)-7, Tri-slosher]

Tuesday, December 26th, 2017

I stumble over my first splat opportunity, deservedly only ending up with an assist, before moving up to be wary of the E-litre 4K's sights. I dabble a bit with Burst Bombs, a couple hitting inkling, one hitting the block in front of me, before a proper opportunity arises, which ...

Sitting back in support of the Rainmaker [14(6)-4, Splattershot Jr]

Saturday, December 23rd, 2017

Holding back at the start of the battle, rather than rushing to try to burst the Rainmaker free, has its benefits. I stay unsplatted, measure what's happening, and sneak a splat here and there. It only goes a bit wrong when I get confident, which really doesn't take long, and ...

Junior splats in Rainmaker [12(5)-5, Splattershot Jr]

Friday, December 22nd, 2017

I'm having a lot of trouble in Ranked battles. There are so many more inklings active now, and so many more that are better than me, plus the ranking system is overwhelmed with new inklings entering the system all the time, that I'm not really sure I fit in. Trying ...

Super-splats in Mayonnaise Splatfest [2147p, 15(2)-1, Splattershot Jr]

Monday, December 18th, 2017

The Splattershot Jr is working for me, and with the Splatfest coming to a close with my not being Queen of Mayonnaise yet, I'm sticking with it. It's a standard start to the battle, neither side in a rush to confront the other, but when we meet in the middle ...
