I got 4925 points out of this event, and now my total win rate has reached 53%.

The next thing I want to learn is targeting manually instead of using the presets. It's easier in portable mode where you can touch the target

:cool:





And in addition:



This is another one where one win / 100 points gets you a permanent theme and then you're done. I haven't played the Splatoon series but it looks neat

New update coming, including "Invictus mode" exclusively for people who have won games. I've taken a break from the game for a couple months and I'm excited to dive back in.

I watched some others play that mode for a bit. It is serious business, and it will probably take near perfect play to get wins at all. I'm going to give it a shot tonight

After over 30 Invictus matches, I can say that while it doesn't need *perfect* play, you really don't want to make any bad misdrops, especially in the second half.



Also, the gravity starts higher than in the normal mode. At top 10, the gravity goes to 20g ("instant drop"). Hope you remember how to safely pyramid your stack

Oh yeah, here is the Zelda theme in action



If anyone is like me and wanted to know a little more about each theme before committing to it, I'll post each one here as I get them. I did in fact get the DLC, so I can grind for them twice as fast now

Marathon mode is a pretty good way to work on your speed! And you don't have to play defensively when it's just you; stack as high and as dangerously as you please



I think I can get this below 4 minutes with enough practice

I present one of the most awkward achievements this game has



If you want to chase this, I highly suggest practicing building a 6 or 7 wide structure and constantly doing combos. This might give you power to make surviving the second half easier.

The big problem is if you start getting a lot of garbage at a time, because you can't Tetris it away. Use L / J pieces to clean up 2 lines of it, and then quickly clear the line that's now blocking the rest. One big misdrop and you probably won't make it
