Basic Splat Zones (4-0, Carbon Roller Deco)

Friday, April 21st, 2017

I want to like Saltspray Rig, and think it a good map. I've had some fun battles in Turf War here, and it's the only map that isn't rotationally symmetrical. But it has a bad reputation in all Ranked modes, so much that only Splat Zones are played here any ...

Slightly better aim in Hoverboard Splatfest

Sunday, September 25th, 2016

Saltpray Rig again, with the Splatterscope. I will try to keep to the higher ground and keep our turf inked. I will also try to splat more inklings, and not simply miss them again and again. It's a good start, with a nice stationary traget for me to aim at, and ...

Poor aim in Hoverboard Splatfest

Sunday, September 25th, 2016

Using a shooter on Saltspray Rig sees me make a beeline for the higher ground, trying to hold it. Using a charger, on the other hand, makes me think I can be of more use holding the lower turf, and from the comfort of our base level. I can cover plenty ...

Chased by Krakens in Hoverboard Splatfest

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

Inkbrushes are quick! Quicker than me, however hard I try, so I simply tag along for the boost. It's a good move, getting me to the top of Saltspray Rig nicely. Spraying some ink around is interrupted by a Kraken, which I know can climb up and splat me, so I ...

First battle in Hoverboard Splatfest

Wednesday, September 21st, 2016

I start the Hoverboard Splatfest with a safe, comfortable weapon, the Splash-o-Matic. I will switch a few times, particularly as Moray Towers is one of the maps, but it's good to get a decent start. First battle is on Saltspray Rig, a map that I like, but where circumstances can go ...

Am I really this bad at Rainmaker?

Wednesday, April 6th, 2016

Perhaps a poor question to ask with a postitive splat ratio using the Splatterscope on Saltspray Rig. But I'm feeling outclassed in a string of games, and it's making me wonder if I'm just bad. I'm sure it's a combination of things. Playing with/against better players, not making best use of ...

Dunking the Rainmaker on Saltspray Rig

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

Not me, but I like to think I helped. At least by splatting the Rainmaker carrier at some point, and at the end with my Splat Bomb Rush. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPRgqEaaulI There really wasn't much time to do much else. My squidmates were on top of it. That battle is pretty short, so let's add ...

Running out of power on Rainmaker

Monday, March 21st, 2016

15-8 with a Splatterscope on Rainmaker? You wouldn't think that my Gamepad's low-battery light came on near the start of the game. Well, except for the excessive spinning of the camera when I try to get the power adapter plugged in between splats. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0iFr4_9Ff4 I'm glad Saltspray Rig has been fixed/adapted for ...

Charging it up on Saltspray Rig Rainmaker

Saturday, March 19th, 2016

Back to the Splatterscope for Rainmaker, a dubious move for me, and I clearly don't have an opening strategy for Saltspray Rig yet. But I do like grabbing hold of the Rainmaker! And riding the platforms with a charger is a silly amount of fun. How did I sneak a splat ...

Getting close with the Rainmaker on Saltspray Rig

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

Maybe the Splatterscope isn't the best choice of weapon for Rainmaker with Saltspray Rig and Camp Triggerfish in the map rotation. The vantage points could suit the Tri-slosher better, so I give that a go. The bucket certainly helps on Saltspray Rig, with all the differences in levels. And if only ...
