Turning my fortune around in Splat Zones (5-2, Fresh Squiffer)

Saturday, October 21st, 2017

That blue Splattershot pulls off a couple of good moves to splat me twice. The first time he inks a path to squid through the Suction Bombs I'm trying to use to keep him at bay, giving him a clear shot. The second time, he sees me sensibly avoid his ...

More hits than misses in Splat Zones (15-4, Carbon Roller Deco)

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

If I had a bucket, I'd be looking for that E-litre first thing. But I don't, and it would be crazy to try it with a Carbon Roller, so I just ink some turf sensibly. I try to stay out of trouble too, but, as is always the case in ...

It's all about the Splat Zones (12-3 Tri-slosher)

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

Squidding across the Underpass to splat the Jet Squelcher is a fun start to the battle, and although we lose initial control of the Splat Zones I turn around to give them some ink immediately after the splat. Purple ink comes from both directions, so it's good that my Bubbler ...

Teamwork wins in Splat Zones (15-3, Carbon Roller Deco)

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

There's some good conflict in and around the Splat Zones to start the battle. They turn purple first, but we get some splats and make the Splat Zones green pretty quickly. Rolling back around and seeing an inkling squid in to the ink lets me get a rare squish with ...

No shooters, please, it's Splat Zones (10-3, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

The other team has brought a shooter to a non-shooter battle. That's not very sporting. I also see the Hydra Splatling. I think I can move more quickly than those weapons and get the drop on them, so slosh my way across the Splat Zones and am pleased when I ...

Sloshing over the Splat Zones (11-2, Tri-slosher)

Monday, October 16th, 2017

I take the long route to the Bluefin Depot Splat Zones again, hoping to gain an indirect advantage. My careful sloshing, trying not to spill outside of my chosen path, lets me spy a purple inkling trying the same tactic as me, and surprise him. From there, I can work ...

Circling the Splat Zones (9-0, Tri-slosher)

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

Taking the longest route away from the Splat Zones seems unhelpful, but there can be so much ink flying in to the Splat Zones directly at the start of the battle that my short-ranged bucket and me don't stand much of a chance. And heading to flank the Splat Zones ...

Keeping my head in Splat Zones (10-6, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

Everyone's rushing forwards to start the battle. I like this! We zip through our Splat Zone and head down the side, where two blue inklings are coming. I go in beak first, and end up splatted, but I take one inkling with me. The second is splatted by a squidmate, ...

Sloshing all over the Skatepark in Splat Zones (17-4, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

Can I get behind the green team and cause some disruption to start the battle? Yes, and kind of. The green inklings have moved up, so I don't really catch them by surprise, but my delayed appearance helps our team by adding some finishing ink here and there. With the ...

Asserting my turf in Splat Zones (4-1, Kelp Splat Charger)

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

I head to a decent perch for my Kelp Splat Charger, and immediately ignore the Splat Zones. I assume my squidmates know what they're doing, so I start trying to control the channels visible to me, to prevent purple ink from coming in. This obviously doesn't sit well with at ...
