Some good splatting in Splat Zones (11-3, Splatterscope)

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

I find out in a previous battle that my perch isn't quite as safe from a dedicated Octobrush as I would like. That won't stop me from using it, but in this battle I aim to be a bit more mobile, attempting to hold the centre ground but covering more ...

Flying splats in Splat Zones (7-3, Splatterscope)

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

I found my Splatterscope Splat Zones spot on Museum d'Alfonsino the other day, and I'm going to use it again today. It's useful because I can cover over half the Splat Zone whilst keeping relatively safe, and aware of the main assault channel. I can't quite stay up where it's safest, ...

Holding my own in the Splat Zones (8-4, Splatterscope)

Saturday, February 11th, 2017

When the Kelp Splatterscope splats me from that jump I could never make, I think my number's up, and this battle is over. It doesn't stop me from trying, but I am now quite wary of my distance. At least my Splatterscope allows me the benefit of shooting to cover some ...

Mistakes were made in Rainmaker (7-9, Splatterscope)

Saturday, February 11th, 2017

Two shots needed to hit a stationary inkling. Not my finest hour. At least the Splattershot splats me, not the Rainmaker shield, although I was hoping that my Splat Bomb Rush would explode the shield a bit quicker. I somehow avoid the Kraken, despite my realising a bit late that there ...

Looking good until the end in Rainmaker (12-6, Splatterscope)

Friday, February 10th, 2017

I'm sticking with the Splatterscope for this S-Rank foray. It should work in Arowana Mall, at least. Well, in theory, in the tentacles of a good player, perhaps. But I'm riding this one out in as much style as I can, and I notice that I even start this evening ...

Splatting to the goal in S-Rank Tower Control (4-4, Splatterscope)

Friday, February 10th, 2017

Both teams look varied and balanced at the start of the battle, and it will be interesting to see how that works for both of us. I make a bee-line for the Tower, although as a charger I'm not entirely sure why, maybe just because I can supply the ink ...

Hooray for Splat Bombs in Tower Control (5-6, Splatterscope)

Thursday, February 9th, 2017

I know I disparage my aiming skills with a charger quite regularly, but there are some battles where I am really glad of having Splat Bombs as a Sub-weapon. Of course, it would help if I remembered the basics of being a squid too, so that I don't lie completely outside ...

A bit of fun in S-Rank Tower Control (6-6, Splatterscope)

Thursday, February 9th, 2017

This battle does not go particularly well for me. I try to keep the turf covered at the start, and take pot-shot at inklings too far from me, and end up getting splatted by a Gal from behind a Splash Wall as I aim badly for his squidmate. I miss-time a ...

Playing safe in S-Rank Tower Control (4-3, Splatterscope)

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

Bluefin Depot offers a nice height difference for a charger, at least until the other team make it across the map. But if you're good enough, you can stop them, right? I stop the Tower's first movement, at least, and one approaching inkling, but the yellow team's progress must be ...

Not a bad S-Rank battle for me in Splat Zones (6-7, Splatterscope)

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

It looks like I can't aim for toffee at the start of this Splat Zones battle. That's not an entirely wrong judgment either. I could at least turn to ink our Splat Zones instead, which would also have my seeing the Carbon Roller coming for me earlier. So it goes. I ...
