Running out of power on Rainmaker

Monday, March 21st, 2016

15-8 with a Splatterscope on Rainmaker? You wouldn't think that my Gamepad's low-battery light came on near the start of the game. Well, except for the excessive spinning of the camera when I try to get the power adapter plugged in between splats. I'm glad Saltspray Rig has been fixed/adapted for ...

Nearly a bad Rainmaker tactic

Sunday, March 20th, 2016

A pretty good Rainmaker battle for me, particularly using the Splatterscope. We make a couple of good pushes forward, and hold the centre fairly well. When we have the lead, and the end of the game nears, a squidmate grabs the Rainmaker and heads backwards, no doubt to keep the Rainmaker ...

Charging it up on Saltspray Rig Rainmaker

Saturday, March 19th, 2016

Back to the Splatterscope for Rainmaker, a dubious move for me, and I clearly don't have an opening strategy for Saltspray Rig yet. But I do like grabbing hold of the Rainmaker! And riding the platforms with a charger is a silly amount of fun. How did I sneak a splat ...

Where are my Rainmaker squidmates?

Friday, March 18th, 2016

Okay, I don't make the best of starts, but I try to make amends by cutting off the other team's progress. And, okay, that doesn't go swimmingly either. But at least I'm there and trying. I have no idea where the others are. Battling in the centre of the map still? ...

Getting close with the Rainmaker on Saltspray Rig

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

Maybe the Splatterscope isn't the best choice of weapon for Rainmaker with Saltspray Rig and Camp Triggerfish in the map rotation. The vantage points could suit the Tri-slosher better, so I give that a go. The bucket certainly helps on Saltspray Rig, with all the differences in levels. And if only ...

Saltspray Rig Rainmaker

Wednesday, March 16th, 2016

I'm pretty sure I've never played Rainmaker on Saltspray Rig before. I think there were problems with the map. Anyway, my inexperience probably shows, as I didn't take a minute to recon the map and its changes before plunging in, with my Splatterscope no less. I think I did okay in ...

Hard fought Splat Zones

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Far from my best battle in Splat Zones, but I like to think that at least I made a good showing of myself. I feel I splatted a lot of ink around in the right places, even if my aim is still a bit dodgy. A couple more losses, even after ...

Short and sweet Splat Zones

Monday, March 14th, 2016

I'm not sure I helped too much in this Splat Zones battle, but I'll take the ranking points. I need them. Well, I suppose I took out that Sprinkler. Not the Splash Wall, though. And I did give a morale-boosting 'Nice!' at the end. I'm sure that counts as contributing.

Tides turned in Splat Zones

Sunday, March 13th, 2016

Just when I think I'm getting the hang of Splat Zones, it all starts going wrong. The opponents push forwards, get their specials charged, and I'm flushed out of a comfortable perch. Not a bad result for me as a squid, but we perhaps could have kept the lead. Maybe I'm ...

Suppressed by chargers in Rich or Fit Splatfest

Saturday, March 12th, 2016

The Dual Squelcher may have a good range, but it's not as good as a charger. In the right tentacles, a charger is a good suppression weapon, and these squids have the right tentacles. And in the next battle, after a shaky start, I get to the top rank with a ...
