Splat Zones go both ways (12-2, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

Changing my mind to go the long way across Saltspray Rig gets me a nice opportunistic splat to start with, and continuing to skirt the Splat Zones lands the Splatterscope at my feet. That works for me, and the Splat Zones open up to be captured by us. There remains ...

Vanguard support in Splat Zones (14-5, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

In my last ever batch of battles in Splatoon, I'm pulling out the Tri-slosher for some fun with my favourite weapon. And on the other team are two Splatterscopes, just right for me to toy with, and in Walleye Warehouse too, where audacious flanking moves can lead to some fun ...

Clawing back the Splat Zones (13-8, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

The notorious Saltspray Rig crops up again. If you get in to a position to capture the Splat Zones, you'll probably hold them to the knockout victory. To this end, I zip across the ledge and get a double-splat, which should help us gain some early control. Completing the circuit ...

Green team aren't looking for Tower Control (10-3, Tri-slosher)

Sunday, November 26th, 2017

Okay, the green team take control of the Tower to start with, but we start pushing it the other way pretty quickly, and their efforts to control turf on our side of the Pit is ineffective. Maybe that's the difference: we end up controlling more turf, letting us hold the ...

Fighting back in Splat Zones (16-4, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, November 25th, 2017

That purple Splatterscope is only level 22. I smell a smurf. If that weren't bad enough, I'll drop back down to B+ if we lose this battle. I'm not looking forward to this. My basic plan is to hold back, take care of our Splat Zone, and try not to ...

Turning the battle around in Splat Zones (14-5, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, November 25th, 2017

That Inkstriker chooses an unfortunate time and place to launch the Inkstrike. But, then, I choose an unfortunate time to moonwalk on the conveyer belt. It's not unusual for me to walk in to bombs, though. I show that again almost immediately. Although I do well to dance around the ...

Back to A- with some hits and misses in Tower Control (13-4, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

I'm glad that E-litre 3K isn't a perfect shot. It makes up for a messy start. And the lick of ink that hits my back warns me to turn around, which helps, although I'm a little disappointed someone has got to the E-litre 3K before me. But only a little. ...

Tri-sloshing in Tower Control (9-4, Tri-slosher)

Monday, November 20th, 2017

I'm both wary of the E-litre 3K and aiming for it. Going for the charger is a bit different on Moray Towers, with its large, open centre, so I can't just zoom across there, which is why my route is a little circuitous to start. It's quite effective for early ...

Being ruthless in Splat Zones (10-1, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

Holding back to start with seems to work quite well. Even if we lose early control, it's easily got back when the other team are splatted away. A bit of luck helps too, like the Splatterscope just missing my dangly ear. I wisely stay away from him, and head across ...

Comeback kings in Splat Zones (13-11, Tri-slosher)

Monday, November 13th, 2017

It is a nice move to get around the side of the platform to start with, and nearly gets me the drop on an inkling, but once I was spotted I should have moved backwards. So it goes. I look more towards the Splat Zones on my return, which helps, ...
