A sticky start to Rainmaker (7-3, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

The inklings in my lobby have stuck around for a fair number of battles. Good for them, I say! But it does mean that the chargers have seen the routes I've taken to sneak around the back. It will do me good to shake them up a bit. Or so ...

Pressing hard at the end in Rainmaker (17-7, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

I'm not too confident about being in the open spaces with my Tri-slosher on Mahi-Mahi Resort. I feel exposed with a short-range weapon, and generally get splatted quickly. The feeling is lessened in Rainmaker, when the action can be concentrated elsewhere, but I still find myself skirting the edges and ...

Supporting the Rainmaker (3-3, Tri-slosher)

Monday, February 20th, 2017

The battle switches to Rainmaker! Okay, bucket, we can do this. I like Bluefin Depot and have a good relationship with Mahi-Mahi Resort, both maps that I can skirmish on and around. I even start this battle with a good Disruptor throw, even if I don't get the splat from ...

Applying pressure in Rainmaker (8-7, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, February 18th, 2017

Oop, I nearly get too close to the Rainmaker's shield at the start, but I hang back and nick it off the teal team to get an early, but slight lead. They come back immediately, beating my measly metres, and I both show some restraint to get a splat, and ...

Saving it at the end in Rainmaker (10-8, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, February 18th, 2017

I don't think it benefits me and my bucket to get anywhere fast on Hammerhead Bridge in Rainmaker. I slow down a bit, inking turf, building my Special's charge, and still get caught out by an inkling. I've never been a fan of jumping either. At least I survive the next ...

Splats all around in Rainmaker (11-7, Tri-slosher)

Friday, February 17th, 2017

I like Walleye Warehouse, and I like running around the back on Walleye Warehouse. But will it work on more experienced inklings? It doesn't look like it. I almost but not quite get a splat, and whilst I do nothing the other team takes an early lead. My Bubbler is ready ...

Hits and misses in Rainmaker (11-9, Tri-slosher)

Friday, February 17th, 2017

Back in S Rank, woe is me. But I'll try to stay optimistic. For this venture, I'll stick with my Tri-slosher, and see if I can hold my own on occasion with the bucket. The battle doesn't start well, as I am easily spotted by two inklings as I try to ...

Mistakes were made in Rainmaker (7-9, Splatterscope)

Saturday, February 11th, 2017

Two shots needed to hit a stationary inkling. Not my finest hour. At least the Splattershot splats me, not the Rainmaker shield, although I was hoping that my Splat Bomb Rush would explode the shield a bit quicker. I somehow avoid the Kraken, despite my realising a bit late that there ...

Looking good until the end in Rainmaker (12-6, Splatterscope)

Friday, February 10th, 2017

I'm sticking with the Splatterscope for this S-Rank foray. It should work in Arowana Mall, at least. Well, in theory, in the tentacles of a good player, perhaps. But I'm riding this one out in as much style as I can, and I notice that I even start this evening ...

Supporting the Rainmaker (1-0, Splatterscope)

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

I think I see an alternative perch for my Splatterscope on Camp Triggerfish Rainmaker, and aim for it. You know what, it looks pretty good. It would be better with inklings to aim for, but all I have is a Splat Charger aiming at me. One nicely rolled Splat Bomb later, ...
