Finding the splats in Splat Zones (12-3, Tri-slosher)

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

Back down to A-, after some battles with unstable connections, a couple of disconnects for the full ten-point loss, and just being a bit bad in general. So it goes. I've had the Splatterscope practice, now time to aim for some splatty action. I like the optimism of the inkling trying ...

Is this lag that I'm feeling in Splat Zones (11-9, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, April 29th, 2017

Lots of inklings focus immediately on the Splat Zones at the start of the battle. That's probably quite sensible. But it also lets the occasional inkling slink behind everyone and try to clear the Splat Zones of opposition to make claiming them easier. Admittedly, I go a bit far around the ...

Shifting to a defensive role in Splat Zones (8-3, Tri-slosher)

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Ink and capture our Splat Zone, and back off from trouble. That's a pretty good start. I couldn't quite anticipate that the Splash-o-Matic would sit and wait in his corner for inklings to come past, and get splatted a little cheaply, I think. But back I come and start inking turf, ...

Getting a quad in Squad Tower Control (14-6, Tri-slosher)

Friday, April 28th, 2017

I've had some good fun with the Carbon Roller Deco tonight, so it's time to pull out the Tri-slosher for Tower Control. The bucket works well with a height advantage, so I head around the side to clamber up the wall. It's not a great position to be at the ...

Splatting all around in Rainmaker (13-4, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

Phew, no one wants the Rainmaker! At least, no one in purple. I squid around the side, on a whim because I'm back in A Rank battles, and find a sole green inkling shooting the Rainmaker's Shield, who is easy to splat, then ink a bit of a path below ...

Splatted back down to A in Rainmaker (14-7, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

I don't think I'm a bad player, but the way some battles go it's hard to convince myself otherwise. I'm not convinced my play-style changes significantly between battles, but the results can vary wildly. Still, I get the occasional moment that is definitely lucky, like apparently being in exactly the ...

First Tower Control battle back in S Rank goes okay (12-8, Tri-slosher)

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

Last time I was in S Rank I held my own for a fairly extended session. I would like to think I can enjoy my time here again, but as it's been a struggle getting back out of the A Ranks I am a little apprehensive about what the experience ...

Distracting the opposition in Tower Control (5-1, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

I really do like Moray Towers, whatever the type of battle. Lots of vertical surfaces, side routes, back routes. I just find it like a little adventure each time I'm allowed room to skirmish around. Much like this battle. I make a slightly different start, taking the jump to launch the ...

Ducking and diving in Tower Control (10-2, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

Straight around the back to the teal side of the map for me. The extra blocks in Museum d'Alfonsino for Tower Control make this much easier than in other battle modes, which lets me get the drop on what I assume is a charger hanging back. I move on to ...

Getting close in Tower Control (7-1, Tri-slosher)

Friday, April 21st, 2017

Tower Control on Moray Towers means it's Tri-slosher time! I'm learning from other battles that jumping on to the Tower in a depression right in the middle of the map is a bad idea. I'm also learning to look before I leap. I can't remember which ledges are here and ...
