Making a fist of it in 3-inkling Rainmaker [10(1)-9, Blaster]

Monday, December 11th, 2017

Oops, we lose an inkling before the battle begins. That doesn't bode well for us, but we'll just have to do our best. More than in the Shipyard, the Blaster's lack of wall-inking ability is really felt on the Mainstage, as is my lack of decent ink-resistant clothing so far, ...

First Blaster battle is in Rainmaker [23(7)-7, Blaster]

Monday, December 11th, 2017

I've got access to the Blaster, a weapon I've used in Splatoon, so let's give it a go. Rainmaker may not be the best mode for the Blaster, but I believe every weapon is viable in every mode, so I'm willing to give it a blast. I've also got some ...

A clear run with the Rainmaker [7(1)-0, Carbon Roller]

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

Aww, I deny my tenacious little Autobomb a splat by getting it myself. But it's a pretty good start to the battle, and I grab the Rainmaker to give us an early lead. I think I'm getting a better grip on the new model Rainmaker, and I use it quite ...

Jumping past to help the Rainmaker [6(1)-2, Carbon Roller]

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

I'm sure I had a plan at the start of this battle, but who knows now what it was. At least the monitor saves me from the Rainmaker shield, and my Autobomb finds a target, but I struggle to get enough ink to splat the Rainmaker running past me. I get ...

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 ...

Chaotic Rainmaker [22(2)-9, Carbon Roller]

Friday, December 8th, 2017

I hold back a little to start the battle, as the Carbon Roller is a bit weak without a good helping of ink. It serves me well, though. I catch one inkling trying to flank us, and I get to support the Rainmaker from behind, carried ably by a squidmate. ...

Getting the splats in Rainmaker [16-7, Carbon Roller]

Friday, December 8th, 2017

I think I'm almost faster with the Carbon Roller now that there is the vertical flick instead of the Seeker. That doesn't help me much when my decisions are still a bit poor. Also, the vertical flick is not as good against the Rainmaker as the standard horizontal flick. By ...

Dunking the Rainmaker [13(1)-5, Carbon Roller]

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Okay, I like this vertical flick, and I think I'm getting the hang of it. It's great for inking a path, which the Carbon Roller really needs now that it's lost the Seekers. I do like the Autobombs, though. I just wish I could get to grips with the normal ...

First Rainmaker battle sees a dunking [9(1)-3, Splat Charger]

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Moray Towers Rainmaker should be fairly familiar. Of course, appearances can be deceptive, Osborne Cox. Not only has the layout of the Towers been changed, but there are lots of subtle and not-so-subtle differences with not just Rainmaker, but the weapons kit. It's almost a hindrance to have two years ...
