Blasted Slosher in Rainmaker (12-8, Blaster)

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

Using the boxes to shield me from the Rainmaker's bursting shield is a pretty good idea. Maybe not so good that it puts me in to the sights of most of the purple inklings, but never mind, lesson learnt. By the time I return, which really doesn't take the long, ...

Carrying the Rainmaker (6-9, Blaster)

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

Holding back a little doesn't do me any favours here, but at least it indirectly gets me to where the Rainmaker is, albeit it heading towards our podium. As my Killer Wail charges bursting the Rainmaker Shield, it seems like a good time to use it and grab the Rainmaker. ...

The Rainmaker's not going far (13-9, Carbon Roller Deco)

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

Sneaking across the gap on Flounder Heights works when the other team isn't rushing to control the objective. To be honest, I'm surprised I'm not splatted from the side when I'm trying to splat the inkling on the ledge. But it just takes a little longer before I'm caught. The Rainmaker ...

Charging back in Rainmaker (13-6, Tri-slosher)

Friday, August 11th, 2017

I try not to charge directly in to trouble to start the battle, which pretty much works. But I pretty much only get behind the purple team when they push the Rainmaker, and even then my initial cautious approach has my lagging somewhat behind the action. At least I pop ...

One way in Rainmaker (4-0, Tri-slosher)

Friday, August 11th, 2017

I want to get behind those chargers as soon as possible. I have a path to do that, as long as the yellow team aren't faster than me. And I mostly make it. Some ink splashes up as I pass an opening, and I wonder if I'm going to be ...

Lending a supporting bucket in Rainmaker (6-2, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

Ooh, we have the firepower in this battle, with three shooters and my bucket against two Rollers, a Splatterscope, and one shooter. This should swing in our favour, unless the charger has elite aim and stops us at range with brutal efficiency. I take a circuitous route to the bottom the ...

Squid down in Rainmaker (14-9, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

Wait a minute, something's not right. They have an extra inkling! I suspect we're going to lose this battle, but it's good to see us all surge ahead with dogged determination. I try to flank, but am easily spotted and splatted, and already we're on the back foot. But the ...

Going long in Rainmaker (15-6, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

Ooh, an E-litre 3K on the green side. Can I beat the Carbon Rollers to the centre, sneak around the side, and splat the charger from behind? Nope, as a green ink trail appears before I get to the centre. It turns out to be the E-litre 3K's shot, but ...

Mini splats in Rainmaker (6-5, Zink Mini Splatling)

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

I saw some nice footage of a Mini Splatling being amazing, so thought I'd replicate it. Of course, it's just not that easy, and I'm not that good unpracticed with the Mini Splatling. It's interesting to find the rhythm of the weapon, which is helped by being able to hold ...

Sprinklers as decoys in Rainmaker (18-6, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

Sneaking around the back works quite well, I'd say. I manage to squid through the grate efficiently, and get behind the Splatterscope without her suspecting anything until she's splatted. Turning to ink ahead of me lets me spot the Hydra Splatling aiming for me, and some sloshing and moving gets ...
