Just the two of us in Rainmaker (11-7, Tri-slosher)

Monday, September 25th, 2017

I make a fairly normal, overly aggressive push to start the battle, and am splatted back to base. At least I can count on my squidmates to be more sensible but, checking the status of the map, the battle looks lop-sided. As I return to the battle, I keep my ...

A couple of near misses in Rainmaker (14-8, Tri-slosher)

Monday, September 25th, 2017

I do well not to get ambushed at the start of the battle, and to stay just outside the range of the Rainmaker's Shield afterwards. Pushing up for my own little aggressive move gets one splat, and although my Bubbler keeps me safe from the ink for a bit, getting ...

Taking it most of the way in Rainmaker (1-1, Carbon Roller Deco)

Sunday, September 24th, 2017

Now that I can squid under the closing gate reliably, I am determined to make this side route work for the Carbon Roller Deco. The Seeker this time takes a really nice line, letting me recoup ink and splatting the wall to squid up. I hit my head, which isn't ...

Having a splatty Rainmaker battle (18-7, Carbon Roller Deco)

Sunday, September 24th, 2017

Trying to get behind the blue inklings is probably doomed from the moment the Luna Blaster saw my Seeker trail. Doesn't stop me trying, but I'm not always the smartest. Coming back with a bit more caution just makes me look confused. I miss one inkling passing me, and I ...

Hitting the flank in Rainmaker (13-5, Carbon Roller Deco)

Saturday, September 23rd, 2017

The battle to burst the Rainmaker's Shield is tight, the decisive moment being the Splash-o-matic's Suction Bomb Rush charging, which poses problems for us by itself. I push up when it looks safe, hoping to catch up with the Rainmaker scooting off down the side. But it's not quite safe ...

Fighting against a sea of unsporting green ink in Rainmaker (17-9, Carbon Roller Deco)

Saturday, September 23rd, 2017

Look at all those Seekers! It's beautiful. There's a Suction Bomb too, not one of ours, and I just about get out of its way before it explodes, unlike a couple of green inklings and the Rainmaker's Shield. But my stay is temporary, and I turn back only to be ...

Seeking the dunk in Rainmaker (12-5, Carbon Roller Deco)

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

Yes! I'm not the only one who has to take time to aim a Seeker. I don't know whose makes it past the block, but one is all that was needed. I head right around the back, just about catching one inkling by surprise, and roll up on the other ...

Forging through the ink in Rainmaker (6-3, Carbon Roller Deco)

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

It's tough aiming straight, even with Seekers. At least I don't get in the way of our charger, and my Seeker almost reaches its limit before exploding, all of which lets us move up quickly. I hit the side, as I tend to do, and get a nice early splat, ...

Forward support in Rainmaker (8-2, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, September 9th, 2017

I've still not really got the hang of Hammerhead Bridge. I never really know what route to take, or what works. I fully expect to pop up on the other side of the Rainmaker and be splatted instantly, so it is a nice relief to get one splat and push ...

Getting close in Rainmaker (10-7, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, September 9th, 2017

I don't rush in to things to start with, which makes a nice change. My horribly thrown Disruptor is par for the course, though, but it looks like a squidmate splats the Hydra Splatling for me. Or he gets bored and wanders off. Works for me, as I can get ...
