Being a menace in Tower Control (14-5, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

I wonder if the Bento Splatterscope will be on the obvious perch to start the battle. And I wonder if I can get around to it unscathed. Yep! I hop over the perch to look for inklings in the sea of purple ink, and almost bump in to one. I ...

Forward support in Tower Control (9-2, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

Less forward and more sideways to start with. I kind of saunter over there too, not really rushing, both wanting to build a bit of charge in to my Bubbler and wanting to see if anyone is coming on the teal team. Yes, one is, and a Disruptor catches him ...

Tenacity in Tower Control (7-6, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

The green team push up pretty aggressively to start the battle, and I feel a bit impotent against the two-pronged approach. That isn't helped by a mistimed jump/Seeker throw that does nothing. At least I time my jump in to the Killer Wail a bit better, although it's frustrating to ...

Almost across the bridge in Tower Control (12-6, Carbon Roller Deco)

Monday, June 26th, 2017

I can get to the Tower on Hammerhead Bridge pretty quickly as a Carbon roller, but as a Carbon Roller I'm not sure that I should be getting there quickly. Still, that Seeker does a good job, I avoid a Suction Bomb, and we take an early if insignificant lead. ...

Distracting the opposition in Tower Control (16-7, Tri-slosher)

Monday, June 26th, 2017

I head for the flank to get behind the orange team immediately, and am glad that the Inkbrush moves a bit faster than me, putting her around the corner and somewhat unaware of me initially. From there, and a little conscious of how many orange inklings have been splatted, and ...

Quick sprint in Tower Control (5-0, Grim Range Blaster)

Sunday, June 25th, 2017

I look to hit the blue team's flank initially, but seeing the flurry of activity in the middle of the map changes my mind, particularly as my angle of approach looks good. I get a nice direct hit on one inkling, and can squid under the sight of the Splattterscope. ...

Helping with the push in Tower Control (6-3, Grim Range Blaster)

Sunday, June 25th, 2017

Oops, in trying to keep my forward motion up whilst blasting, I jump in front of the charger. That's exactly what I don't like when battling with a charger, so I'm sorry about doing that. I'm aiming to hit the perch on our right, though, where the range of my ...

Missing my moment in Tower Control (13-5, Grim Range Blaster)

Saturday, June 24th, 2017

I'm trying the Grim Range Blaster in Tower Control, hoping to get the hang of the Burst/Blast combo. Judging by the start of the battle, I need more practice. I still haven't quite worked out the utility of Burst Bombs on vertical surfaces either, but I'll get there. Just as ...

Keeping the purple team occupied in Tower Control (12-9, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

The Slosher can slosh more than my Tri-slosher. That's fair enough. I have to wonder what my squidmates have been up to, as there wasn't that much inking to be heard at the start, and no ink along the right corridor on my return. I'm sure they were busy, though. ...

Keeping the Tower moving in Tower Control (13-6, Carbon Roller Deco)

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

There's lots of jostling behind my Seeker as we race to the Tower. I can't blame that for my second Seeker not making its way through the plant pots. It's a tight line. As my squidmates look to control the centre of the Mall, I push the Tower a little. ...
