Defence and attack in Rainmaker [10(2)-7, Sploosh-o-matic]

Saturday, February 17th, 2018

I wonder why that green inkling hasn't seemed to spot me, right up until he turns around to splat me. It shouldn't surprise me, I've done exactly the same thing before around that same corner to others. I don't make the same mistake when chasing the Roller, or when trying ...

Curling out the splats in Rainmaker [20(2)-10, Sploosh-o-matic]

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Look out, she's gonna blow! Nope, not fast enough, and we're already on a desperate defence as the pink team almost reach our podium. Not an ideal start. Getting caught out of range by the Splattershot isn't great either. I need to be smarter with the Sploosh-o-matic. I try going around ...

Finding the right opportunity in Rainmaker [13(5)-7, Sploosh-o-matic]

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

In a display of excellent timing and positioning, I drop right in to the Roller's flick. You can't teach that. I'm not quite sure how the Roller splatted me next time, though, but I at least I also somehow survived the Rainmaker's shield exploding. But that Roller catches me again, ...

Sneaking some splats in Rainmaker [17(3)-4, Sploosh-o-matic]

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

That green inkling's move is easy to anticipate, opening up the centre of the Pump Track for me. I have to avoid a Curling Bomb Rush, though, but lurking on the lower track opens opportunity to splat the charger, which is pretty satisfying. I then make a similar mistake to ...

Different ways to splat in Rainmaker [15(1)-8, Sploosh-o-matic]

Monday, February 5th, 2018

I remember that sponge incident from the previous battle, but the Curling Bomb trail gives me a good head-start. My solution is to jink around the sponge, but maybe I could have told my squidmate that. Also, maybe I don't need that head-start, if I can't dodge out of the ...

Edging closer in Rainmaker [20(4)-10, Sploosh-o-matic]

Monday, February 5th, 2018

Who put that sponge there? Never mind. It doesn't stop us from grabbing the Rainmaker first, and making a good push in to opposition territory. My Ninja Squid Tee and Sploosh-o-matic work really well, but it works better when not squidding directly towards a Luna Blaster aiming at the Rainmaker ...

Splooshing it up in Rainmaker [17(2)-6, Sploosh-o-matic]

Sunday, January 28th, 2018

Back to the Sploosh-o-matic for some Rainmaker, and this time with a nifty Ninja Squid jacket. I like it from the start, the Curling Bomb being Seeker-like, and squidding around the edge to patrol for inklings to splat. I even hit the flank to make a potential path for the ...

Stealing the dunk in Rainmaker [4(2)-2, Sploosh-o-matic]

Wednesday, January 24th, 2018

I like that right-hand route on the Manta Maria, mostly for its smooth squidding. It doesn't really put me in a good position for much though, particularly with a short-range weapon like the Sploosh-o-matic. Still, I get one splat by repositioning, although my squidmates are doing the real work. Super-jumping back ...

Rolled over but not defeated in Rainmaker [10-6, Sploosh-o-matic]

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

That's a solid start to the battle, sneaking around the Rainmaker for a surprise splat, and working up the Towers to be near the podium. My squidmates aren't far behind either, although when I try to rejoin them, despite managing to avoid a Splashdown, that Roller is deadly with her ...

Teamwork in Rainmaker [5(2)-1, Sploosh-o-matic]

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

My opening gambit fails again. I swear, I'll either make that work or be splatted trying. Still, my Curling Bomb gets a direct hit, and my ink spreads enough to get an assist too. Maybe it wasn't so bad after all. I get to super-jump back too, although to a ...
