Splats both ways in Rainmaker (12-7, Carbon Roller Deco)

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

Trying to be conscientious about the objective doesn't go too well for me at the start of the battle. To be fair, I don't think flicking over that ledge is a good move for a Carbon Roller. I should remember that. I get lucky not being spotted dropping down the ...

Keeping the Splat Zones blue (7-2, Tri-slosher)

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Quick sloshing gets me above and to the flank of the yellow team nicely, all except for one yellow inkling who splats me back to base. At least I splat him too, so I don't feel my time was wasted, particularly as my squidmates capture the Splat Zones almost immediately ...

Not quite finishing off the Splat Zones (12-7, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

I see the E-litre 3K. Maybe if I'm fast enough I can sneak around the side of him. And I am fast enough, although the Range Blaster almost catches me. I try to get ahead, faltering a bit, but am not chased, so slink down and try to find the ...

Squidding around the Splat Zones (8-3, Tri-slosher)

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

I'm not sure I should always be the first to the Splat Zones. I like being quick, but I have to wonder if everyone else is purposely taking their time. Certainly, one the purple inklings is simply building up his Inkstrike to hit us as we approach, and I am ...

Splats but no success in Tower Control (16-8, Blaster)

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

I'm still trying to improve my battling skills with a regular foray with the Blaster. I think it's working to some extent, but I often forget what I'm trying to do and revert to charging ahead hoping to get some splats. That's part of my battling I need to work ...

Flicking like an idiot in Tower Control (10-2, Carbon Roller Deco)

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

Have I toned down my recklessness since the previous battle? Hell no! It was a lot of fun, and as long as my current rank enables me to have that fun my battling will probably remain a little loose. Of course, getting snap-splatted by the Splat Charger reminds me that ...

Rough splatting in Tower Control (17-5, Carbon Roller Deco)

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

I honestly think that battling with the Blaster is helping me improve my skill, even if I'm winning less than half of the battles. I'm also having as much as I would with other weapons. I pull out the Carbon Roller Deco purely to stop dropping below A-, as I ...

A few good moves in Splat Zones (6-3, Blaster)

Monday, May 1st, 2017

Time to pull out the Blaster again. It has been suggested that practising with the Blaster will improve my battles in general. We shall see. I've also read plenty of people saying that Blasters don't cover enough turf to be effective in Splat Zones. I don't think those people have ...

Back-and-forth in Splat Zones (14-7, Tri-slosher)

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

Woo, look at me go! I probably overestimate my speed with the Tri-slosher, and it's more that I am over-eager to be the first to get splatted in the middle of the map. But I get to the middle and start inking the Splat Zones, like a good squidmate, which ...

Splats for nothing in Tower Control (13-6, Carbon Roller Deco)

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Exquisite squidding again at the start of this battle. Turf needs to be inked, apparently. I'll work it out eventually. I may work out what's going on around the Tower too, but not that soon, because it gets a bit hectic. Bombs everwhere! Squids here, inklings there! I can't believe ...
