The Rainmaker goes both ways [15(5)-9, Tri-slosher]

Sunday, January 14th, 2018

E-litre chargers remain annoying, unfortunately, but I get to have a bit of fun with the Rainmaker kind of as a result. I get a fair distance, but the blue team recover it and look to want to get splats more than advance their lead. Whatever, weirdoes. What's worse is ...

Going against the flow in Rainmaker [13(2)-9, Tri-slosher]

Sunday, January 14th, 2018

I'm not worried about the low battery as much as that inkling inking his way to our podium, in preparation of a purple Rainmaker drive. I suspect he will be an irritating presence for most of the battle, and I would do well to ignore him, if not his ink. ...

Doing pretty good in S-rank Rainmaker [6(1)-0, Splattershot Jr]

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018

I don't think I'm an S-rank player, but I've worked my way up here in Rainmaker. I get overwhelmed for my first couple of battles, but am encouraged when I drop back in to more of a support role in a battle that sadly didn't get recorded. I pull my ...

Coming from behind in Rainmaker [5(1)-1, Splattershot Jr]

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

This is a cautionary tale. Do not leave the Rainmaker unattended next to your podium covered in the ink of your opponents. That is all. Apart from: can I get a Woomy!

Stealing the dunk in Rainmaker [15(7)-4, Splattershot Jr]

Monday, January 1st, 2018

I do some general inking to start the battle, making it easier for us to move around and try to end up in a beneficial position for whatever happens with the Rainmaker. The teal team grab it, and I accidentally squid through a grating, but it mostly works out. We ...

Worth it for the end in Rainmaker [7(3)-5, Splattershot Jr]

Sunday, December 31st, 2017

Holy crap, my aim is bad. The Rainmaker is under my nose, but it still takes me two minutes to splat him. I really need to work on this, but it seems like practice just isn't enough. So it goes, at least I still have fun being bad. And I'm ...

Hitting the flank in Rainmaker [3(2)-0, Splattershot Jr]

Wednesday, December 27th, 2017

Going straight to the Rainmaker is a mug's game, which is why I occasionally don't do it. I hit the flank instead, building up charge for Ink Armour, and making use of the ink rail that leads to the perch everyone normally stands on at the start of a battle. ...

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 ...

Getting inexorably closer to the podium in Rainmaker [13(6)-6, Splattershot Jr]

Friday, December 22nd, 2017

I'm continuing with my Splattershot Jr plan, as it seems to be mostly working. But I'm being a bit more aggressive with it now, because it seems to be mostly working. I hit the flank of the purple team immediately, ignoring the Rainmaker, and although I don't catch the Dynamo ...
