Consecutive splats for the loss in Splat Zones (15-9, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

I take my usual route around the side to get behind the other team, and with no yellow inklings down the corridor it looks like I've got a clean run to do it. I have to say, my squidding isn't as smooth as it could be, but I get to ...

Not quick enough with the Bubbler in Splat Zones (6-5, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

I take a long, rather convoluted route to the Splat Zones, but I'm not spotted this time. That lets me hit the purple team from behind, getting a couple of splats, whilst having my Bubbler charged and ready in case of trouble. The trouble comes from below, though, where I'm ...

Frustrating the opposition in Tower Control (12-6, Tri-slosher)

Monday, August 14th, 2017

Rushing to the Tower is a good way to be splatted for nothing. Thankfully for me, this goes more for the other team than me for once, as I squid past the Tower to get a double-splat, and a squidmate gets a third. A squidmate shows good initiative and hops ...

Charging back in Rainmaker (13-6, Tri-slosher)

Friday, August 11th, 2017

I try not to charge directly in to trouble to start the battle, which pretty much works. But I pretty much only get behind the purple team when they push the Rainmaker, and even then my initial cautious approach has my lagging somewhat behind the action. At least I pop ...

One way in Rainmaker (4-0, Tri-slosher)

Friday, August 11th, 2017

I want to get behind those chargers as soon as possible. I have a path to do that, as long as the yellow team aren't faster than me. And I mostly make it. Some ink splashes up as I pass an opening, and I wonder if I'm going to be ...

Lending a supporting bucket in Rainmaker (6-2, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

Ooh, we have the firepower in this battle, with three shooters and my bucket against two Rollers, a Splatterscope, and one shooter. This should swing in our favour, unless the charger has elite aim and stops us at range with brutal efficiency. I take a circuitous route to the bottom the ...

Squid down in Rainmaker (14-9, Tri-slosher)

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

Wait a minute, something's not right. They have an extra inkling! I suspect we're going to lose this battle, but it's good to see us all surge ahead with dogged determination. I try to flank, but am easily spotted and splatted, and already we're on the back foot. But the ...

Going long in Rainmaker (15-6, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

Ooh, an E-litre 3K on the green side. Can I beat the Carbon Rollers to the centre, sneak around the side, and splat the charger from behind? Nope, as a green ink trail appears before I get to the centre. It turns out to be the E-litre 3K's shot, but ...

Sprinklers as decoys in Rainmaker (18-6, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

Sneaking around the back works quite well, I'd say. I manage to squid through the grate efficiently, and get behind the Splatterscope without her suspecting anything until she's splatted. Turning to ink ahead of me lets me spot the Hydra Splatling aiming for me, and some sloshing and moving gets ...

Finding my path in Rainmaker (8-4, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

I'm trying not to get splatting right at the start of battles. It's about time, right? I'm not quite sure what else to do, though, which may be clear. I think what I do is delay how soon I get avoidably splatted. So it goes. I try a bit of ...
