Getting a bit close in Rainmaker [13(2)-7, Sploosh-o-matic]

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

There's movement all over the place to start the battle, with plenty of inklings thinking that a splatty start would be more tactical than moving the Rainmaker. As I try to get rid of any chasing inklings with a Curling Bomb, and reminded by the Tri-slosher of the bridge above ...

Missing a squid in Splat Zones [11(5)-3, Splattershot Jr]

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

That's a pretty good Splat Bomb to start with, splatting one inkling and getting another inky. Losing the Splat Zones initially isn't a problem either, not if they are captured from a shaky foundation, and we overpower the yellow team to take control. Unfortunately, we've already lost our Jer Squelcher, ...

Settling in to a groove in Splat Zones [13(4)-2, Splattershot Jr]

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

Caution doesn't really pay off at the start of this battle. The green team lunge for the Splat Zones, capture them, and hold us off successfully. It's hard to know what to do differently sometimes. I look for another angle and hit the flank, and although that catches the Squiffer's ...

Splats here and there in Splat Zones [23(8)-5, Tri-slosher]

Thursday, January 11th, 2018

I try to create and maintain a good foundational inking to start the battle, which would serve us well in any initial tussles, with a bit of close-range support for our Splatterscope. No splats for a while, but with my Ink Armour active and the Splat Zones nice and purple ...

Splats around The Reef in Tower Control [22(1)-7, Tri-slosher]

Saturday, January 6th, 2018

My initial flank works quite well, but I really did have enough time to activate Ink Armour. So it goes. Surveying the situation on my return sees everything really quite orange. It's dangerous to rush in, so I measure circumstances briefly before moving. I get some nice splats, and help ...

Sloshing around the edges in Tower Control [20(5)-7, Tri-slosher]

Saturday, January 6th, 2018

Not a great Burst Bomb, straight in to the wall. Not great sloshing either, taking on the Slosher with my green bucket. I'm a little surprised we both got splatted. I hold back a bit as a result, which helps repel the first purple push, and only goes wrong when ...

Doing pretty good in S-rank Rainmaker [6(1)-0, Splattershot Jr]

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018

I don't think I'm an S-rank player, but I've worked my way up here in Rainmaker. I get overwhelmed for my first couple of battles, but am encouraged when I drop back in to more of a support role in a battle that sadly didn't get recorded. I pull my ...

Coming from behind in Rainmaker [5(1)-1, Splattershot Jr]

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

This is a cautionary tale. Do not leave the Rainmaker unattended next to your podium covered in the ink of your opponents. That is all. Apart from: can I get a Woomy!

Being green in Splat Zones [19(7)-1, Splattershot Jr]

Saturday, December 30th, 2017

Hitting the flank for a surprise attack works better when you move as quickly as possible. I dawdle a bit, but that just means I counter-attack the yellow inkling hitting our flank. It works well. We lose the Splat Zones to the quicker yellow start, but snatch them away from ...

Back with the bucket in Tower Control [11(4)-3, Tri-slosher]

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

I've been a little reluctant to pick up the Tri-slosher immediately, mostly because so many inklings have found its joy and I don't want to seem like a Johnny-come-lately. But it was my favourite weapon before, and when I struggle a bit with other weapons it is always my comfort ...
