Back to picking on chargers in Splat Zones [11(2)-1, Carbon Roller]

Saturday, December 9th, 2017

Who goes straight to the Splat Zones these days? Not me! Well, not in this battle. I head around the side, looking for the charger. But he's not on the perch. I hear him firing, though, and looking down sees an opportunity. I'm still getting the hang of what seems ...

Nearly clawing back the Splat Zones [19(5)-6, Carbon Roller]

Saturday, December 9th, 2017

I'm a little slow moving forwards to start with, mostly because when everyone rushes I tend to get splatted for no reason. This doesn't happen this time, but the purple team also capture the Splat Zones. Still, I can throw an Ink Storm over the Splat Zones, and move up ...

Splat Zones go both ways (12-2, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

Changing my mind to go the long way across Saltspray Rig gets me a nice opportunistic splat to start with, and continuing to skirt the Splat Zones lands the Splatterscope at my feet. That works for me, and the Splat Zones open up to be captured by us. There remains ...

Vanguard support in Splat Zones (14-5, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

In my last ever batch of battles in Splatoon, I'm pulling out the Tri-slosher for some fun with my favourite weapon. And on the other team are two Splatterscopes, just right for me to toy with, and in Walleye Warehouse too, where audacious flanking moves can lead to some fun ...

Clawing back the Splat Zones (13-8, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

The notorious Saltspray Rig crops up again. If you get in to a position to capture the Splat Zones, you'll probably hold them to the knockout victory. To this end, I zip across the ledge and get a double-splat, which should help us gain some early control. Completing the circuit ...

Fighting back in Splat Zones (16-4, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, November 25th, 2017

That purple Splatterscope is only level 22. I smell a smurf. If that weren't bad enough, I'll drop back down to B+ if we lose this battle. I'm not looking forward to this. My basic plan is to hold back, take care of our Splat Zone, and try not to ...

Turning the battle around in Splat Zones (14-5, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, November 25th, 2017

That Inkstriker chooses an unfortunate time and place to launch the Inkstrike. But, then, I choose an unfortunate time to moonwalk on the conveyer belt. It's not unusual for me to walk in to bombs, though. I show that again almost immediately. Although I do well to dance around the ...

Running out of time in Splat Zones (14-5, Carbon Roller Deco)

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

Maintaining our Splat Zone is a worthy task, but when our squidmates who've headed to the other side don't seem to make it, it seems pointless to only defend. I move around myself, and at just the right time to catch a green inkling coming my way. There's a second ...

Can't finish the Splat Zones (14-4, Carbon Roller Deco)

Saturday, November 18th, 2017

It seems like those Splat Bombs won't stop being thrown across the gap, and I will keep flicking to cover their explosions for the rest of the battle. I'm almost relieved that the Splatling wants to get rid of me. Plus, it's great seeing my squidmate who got around the ...

Being green in Splat Zones (14-4, Carbon Roller Deco)

Saturday, November 18th, 2017

I'm not quite sure what the best option is for the Carbon Roller Deco at Mahi-Mahi Resort Splat Zones. A Seeker straight ahead seems efficient, but leaves little option once at the end, as I find out. I try a different route, one that works for the Tri-slosher sometimes. It ...
