Wet splats in Tower Control (9-8, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Sticking with the Tri-slosher for now, for some skirmishing action around Mahi-Mahi Resort. That's the plan, at least, which kinda requires not getting splat by an N-Zap from below before I get anywhere. I'm sure I can do better. Splatted by a Kraken is arguably better, as it is harder to ...

Messy splatting in Tower Control (10-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

I'm holding my own in S Rank, which makes a nice change. It makes me feel like I'm improving. Maybe the Carbon Roller Deco is helping me out, or trying to learn it is helping improve my battling. It doesn't seem like a huge improvement in my battling when I find ...

Getting some splats in Tower Control (10-7, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

A decent start to this battle, albeit defensive. But that's the best way a Carbon Roller Deco can start a battle. Any more aggressive and you're just asking to be the first splat. We defend our corridor, clear the Tower, and take control. Not for long, but it's something. A bit ...

Taking back control in Tower Control (8-9, Carbon Roller Deco)

Monday, March 20th, 2017

I think I'm getting the hang of the Carbon Roller Deco. That's not to say I'm a better Splatoon player, though, as no weapon magically makes you good, so I will still make bad decisions and mistakes. And sometimes a Krak-On Splat Roller will just splat you wherever you are. Inking ...

Trying to find a groove in Tower Control (10-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Monday, March 20th, 2017

Tower Control and Blackbelly Skatepark. The mode and map that probably work least well for the Carbon Roller Deco and its Seekers. But that's okay! I bet I can do something. I remember previous attempts at squidding over a ledge at an inkling shooting right at me, and discard them as ...

I'm no hacker -- Tower Control

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

This video is out-of-sequence to the rest, just because I want to get it out of the way. It's four full battles, start-to-finish, with four weapon and kit changes, no pauses, no edits. Someone recently suggested that I hack my sub-abilities, and that everyone does. Nope, not me. I play to ...

Nearly getting to grips with Arowana Mall Tower Control (12-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Friday, March 10th, 2017

I like to think I'm getting the hang of the Carbon Roller Deco. Or just being a better inkling. Look how I try to launch a Seeker as I reach an edge at the start of this battle, am low on ink, and continue Rolling without breaking stride. And although ...

So good and so bad in Tower Control (2-2, Carbon Roller Deco)

Friday, March 10th, 2017

So much water in Mahi-Mahi Resort. I've come to embrace it, somewhat literally too. But I'm getting ahead of myself. I am getting the hang of the Carbon Roller a little. I impress myself with how I can flick, squid, and jump across gaps pretty smoothly. That gets me to the ...

Turf control also wins in Tower Control (10-9, Carbon Roller Deco)

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

It's a great start to this Tower Control battle for me! I make some good early progress towards the Tower, splat a Splat Roller, and then sneak around the back to splat him again. I get another splat after that, and am only defeated by a Kraken, which I force ...

Some hits, some misses, greating ending in Tower Control (12-8, Carbon Roller Deco)

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

Seekers are pretty good for inking a path, handy for early in the battle as much as when the oppositions' ink is everywhere. But they are really ink-hungry, which even with a Roller can cause me to run out of ink when I need it. I need to be aware ...
