Splatting all around in Rainmaker (13-4, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

Phew, no one wants the Rainmaker! At least, no one in purple. I squid around the side, on a whim because I'm back in A Rank battles, and find a sole green inkling shooting the Rainmaker's Shield, who is easy to splat, then ink a bit of a path below ...

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 ...

Splats but no strategy in Rainmaker (9-4, Splatterscope)

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

I'm on another losing streak, so why not pull out the Splatterscope for some practice? It's good to see that squidmates still pointlessly jump where squidding would do, and block my shot up the building meant to help them, but so it goes. It's also good to see that my aim ...

Splatty Rainmaker mayhem (10-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Monday, April 24th, 2017

As before, I'm sticking around in S Rank. Not quite as before, I'm loitering at the very bottom, not quite losing enough to drop out, not quite winning enough to feel like I deserve to be here at the moment. Even so, there is the occasional battle where I am ...

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 ...

Tough lead to overcome in Rainmaker (11-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Not a great start to this battle. My first Seeker is okay, the second detonates too soon, and the lack of ink in my tank because of this restricts my options. I have to sit back and watch what occurs. I think I have a good opportunity with a Roller ...

Splats for everyone in Rainmaker (14-5, Carbon Roller Deco)

Monday, April 17th, 2017

There doesn't look to be a good Seeker path from the base on Hammerhead Bridge Rainmaker. But the Seeker glides over the podium nicely, and continues over the grating, even if it doesn't ink anything. It works a lot better than my second, rather lacklustre Seeker. But let's move on ...

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 ...

Splats away in Rainmaker (16-8, Tri-slosher)

Sunday, April 16th, 2017

A different route in Hammerhead Bridge Rainmaker this battle. Down the corridor to the right, aiming for the inkable block to come up and flank the purple team. It's hard not to be spotted, though, and I am spotted. But I think the Splatterscope forgets about the inkable block, and ...
