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 ...

Not quite controlling the Splat Zones (6-2, Kelp Splatterscope)

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

Chargers almost demand regular use to stay skilled, so I pull out the Splatterscope again with the hopes of not becoming completely useless with it. Mission successful, I suppose, as I'm not completely useless! Check out that glorious straight line shot out of the base! My Sprinkler throwing could be ...

Ninja Squidding around the Splat Zones (12-3, Carbon Roller Deco)

Saturday, April 29th, 2017

I've had a string of battles where we've been overrun, and I'm feeling a bit tense. The early splat after an unstable connection warning is not helping. But I keep a stiff upper lip and battle on, for the team. I shift to a defensive role immediately, and see that we ...

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 ...

Splats all around Squad Tower Control (14-6, Carbon Roller Deco)

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

We're pulling out the big guns for this squad battle. Acethunder is, at least, with his Gal, and it looks to be an interesting match-up with two chargers and two Rollers on the other team. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I go around the side, which ...

Squishy revenge in Squad Tower Control (15-6, Carbon Roller Deco)

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

I've had my practice with the Blaster, and it's back to the Carbon Roller Deco, hopefully to make me feel a bit more competent. I think sending the Seeker past the inflatable does that right at the start. A small thing, but it pleases me. Of course, I hit the ...

Blasting away in Squad Tower Control (12-9, Blaster)

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

It's time for some more Squad Battles with AceThunder, and after a few battles with the Splatterscope I swap over to give the Blaster a go. I've used it before, mostly also in Tower Control, and had some fun with it, and it will be nice to see if I ...

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 ...
