Autobombs and Ink Storms in Splat Zones [14(3)-3, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Saturday, January 20th, 2018

I'm wondering where that E-litre 4K will set up, and hit the flank to lob an opportunistic Robot Chicken her way. It doesn't find anything, but moving up to the Splat Zones level finds the telltale shot of ink, and I try to combine Ink Storm and Robot Chicken to ...

Shown no mercy in Splat Zones [13(6)-5, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Friday, January 19th, 2018

Uh-oh, our Rapid Blaster isn't moving. Hopefully it's just temporary, and there's not much to be done but press on. Splatting the Inkjet with my Ink Storm keeps my spirits up early, and although I avoid a Splashdown I run in to the inkling that comes out of it. Heading ...

Losing our grip on the Splat Zones [20(10)-6, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

My Robot Chicken does me proud to start the battle, as I almost get stuck between two inklings. Instead, I get an Ink Storm out of it. I'm also starting out quite sensibly, being mobile, not chasing needless splats, and inking anything I can. Keeping the Robot Chickens flying when ...

Taking back the Splat Zones [14(3)-6, Tri-slosher]

Monday, January 15th, 2018

Activating the ink rail as a distraction clearly doesn't fool that Octobrush, and I bet that's not the last I'll see of him. I try to be more pragmatic on my return, hoping to neutralise the Splat Zones and dropping down only when there's clear opportunity. But, as happens curiously ...

Missing a squid in Splat Zones [11(5)-3, Splattershot Jr]

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

That's a pretty good Splat Bomb to start with, splatting one inkling and getting another inky. Losing the Splat Zones initially isn't a problem either, not if they are captured from a shaky foundation, and we overpower the yellow team to take control. Unfortunately, we've already lost our Jer Squelcher, ...

Settling in to a groove in Splat Zones [13(4)-2, Splattershot Jr]

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

Caution doesn't really pay off at the start of this battle. The green team lunge for the Splat Zones, capture them, and hold us off successfully. It's hard to know what to do differently sometimes. I look for another angle and hit the flank, and although that catches the Squiffer's ...

Too orangey for crows in Splat Zones [14(5)-5, Splattershot Jr]

Friday, January 12th, 2018

Some early caution pays off for me in Splat Zones, although my Splat Bomb throws are quite pitiful. My squidmates must be doing something right at least, as we capture the Splat Zones and hold on to them for a huge amount of time. We nearly win by knockout, as ...

Splats here and there in Splat Zones [23(8)-5, Tri-slosher]

Thursday, January 11th, 2018

I try to create and maintain a good foundational inking to start the battle, which would serve us well in any initial tussles, with a bit of close-range support for our Splatterscope. No splats for a while, but with my Ink Armour active and the Splat Zones nice and purple ...

Not really in control in Splat Zones [14(3)-5, Carbon Roller]

Thursday, January 11th, 2018

That's an excellent first ambush, even with the disappointing need for a second flick. The Robot Chicken throw is less excellent, but I'm happy with the Ink Storm. Coming around the back of the Tenta Missile inkling highlights the weakness of the Carbon Roller, though. The first flick is aimed ...

he charger likes that perch in Splat Zones [10(6)-4, Carbon Roller]

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

There's some nice to-and-fro for the Splat Zones, and I manage to keep myself inking for a decent amount of time. The E-litre 4K sets himself up on the obvious perch, overlooking the Splat Zones and without an easy route to him, and although an occasional Robot Chicken moves him ...
