Lots of splatting in Tower Control (15-6, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

I rush forwards, hoping to get up the wall and around the side, but the flow of yellow ink coming towards me as I approach the middle encourages me to hold back. Well, a little. I can use the wall to hide from the Squiffer, and although hiding becomes problematic ...

Good ends to an average middle in Tower Control (11-5, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

A super-aggressive start from me, but one that is also somewhat measured. Finding an unexpected path often leads to splats, and being able to sidestep a Splash Wall certainly helps. I'm a little disappointed that I miss the fourth inkling, but it's all good. The yellow team is temporarily out ...

Almost knowing when to push in Tower Control (6-2, Tri-slosher)

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

I do like trying to speed to the middle and around the side in Urchin Underpass. Fairly often, like this battle, a Blaster just about catches me in the act, and their indirect fire puts a stop to my efforts. I take a more conventional route to return, inking more ...

Good moves and bad in Rainmaker (10-8, Zink Mini Splatling)

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

That Disruptor throw wasn't too bad a move. Running backwards in to the Splat Bomb was pretty bad, though. Trying to splat the Inkzooka would be a good move, but not when she's on our team, and doing so lets the other team burst the Rainmaker Shield, splatting us both. ...

Holding back the knockout in Rainmaker (11-9, Zink Mini Splatling)

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

Man, I still can't throw Disruptors reliably, my first attempt in this battle hitting the floor at my feet. That most contribute a little to my getting splatted, but I could have backed off too. So it goes. My second throw does much better, catching two inklings, and it's only ...

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 ...

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 ...

Mini splats in Rainmaker (6-5, Zink Mini Splatling)

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

I saw some nice footage of a Mini Splatling being amazing, so thought I'd replicate it. Of course, it's just not that easy, and I'm not that good unpracticed with the Mini Splatling. It's interesting to find the rhythm of the weapon, which is helped by being able to hold ...

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 ...
