A few hits, but an ultimate miss in Rainmaker [11-5, Splat Charger]

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

Two good splats to start the battle. If only that Splat Bomb had rolled better, the second inkling may not have burst through the inksplosion of the first to splat me back. So it goes. The purple team grab the Rainmaker and, well, start raining ink on us. The explosions ...

Losing track of the Rainmaker [8(2)-5, Splat Charger]

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

We're on the back foot early in the battle. My Splat Bombs hit nothing, and my aim is as shoddy as always, so no surprise it's my squidmates stopping the Rainmaker, at least for long enough for me to roll a much better Splat Bomb in to the mess. We ...

This way and that in Rainmaker [17(7)-12, Blaster]

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

We come out on top of the initial fracas over the Rainmaker, but not me personally, and I super-jump back to support our first push. The Rainmaker is lost, re-exposed, and I grab it to make a dash. I'm not yet away of that short-cut on the ledge to jump ...

Making a fist of it in 3-inkling Rainmaker [10(1)-9, Blaster]

Monday, December 11th, 2017

Oops, we lose an inkling before the battle begins. That doesn't bode well for us, but we'll just have to do our best. More than in the Shipyard, the Blaster's lack of wall-inking ability is really felt on the Mainstage, as is my lack of decent ink-resistant clothing so far, ...

First Blaster battle is in Rainmaker [23(7)-7, Blaster]

Monday, December 11th, 2017

I've got access to the Blaster, a weapon I've used in Splatoon, so let's give it a go. Rainmaker may not be the best mode for the Blaster, but I believe every weapon is viable in every mode, so I'm willing to give it a blast. I've also got some ...

A clear run with the Rainmaker [7(1)-0, Carbon Roller]

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

Aww, I deny my tenacious little Autobomb a splat by getting it myself. But it's a pretty good start to the battle, and I grab the Rainmaker to give us an early lead. I think I'm getting a better grip on the new model Rainmaker, and I use it quite ...

Jumping past to help the Rainmaker [6(1)-2, Carbon Roller]

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

I'm sure I had a plan at the start of this battle, but who knows now what it was. At least the monitor saves me from the Rainmaker shield, and my Autobomb finds a target, but I struggle to get enough ink to splat the Rainmaker running past me. I get ...

Chaotic Rainmaker [22(2)-9, Carbon Roller]

Friday, December 8th, 2017

I hold back a little to start the battle, as the Carbon Roller is a bit weak without a good helping of ink. It serves me well, though. I catch one inkling trying to flank us, and I get to support the Rainmaker from behind, carried ably by a squidmate. ...

Getting the splats in Rainmaker [16-7, Carbon Roller]

Friday, December 8th, 2017

I think I'm almost faster with the Carbon Roller now that there is the vertical flick instead of the Seeker. That doesn't help me much when my decisions are still a bit poor. Also, the vertical flick is not as good against the Rainmaker as the standard horizontal flick. By ...

Dunking the Rainmaker [13(1)-5, Carbon Roller]

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Okay, I like this vertical flick, and I think I'm getting the hang of it. It's great for inking a path, which the Carbon Roller really needs now that it's lost the Seekers. I do like the Autobombs, though. I just wish I could get to grips with the normal ...
