A valiant effort in the Splat Zones (13-5, Tri-slosher)

4th December 2016 – 7.00 am

Splat Zones on Arowana Mall and Museum d'Alfonsino. I'm tempted to break out the Splatterscope, but I'm having too much fun with the Tri-slosher of late, and I stick with the bucket. I'm still having a lot of fun with it too, staying unsplatted for definitely too long at the start of the battle, given the circumstances.

I get a little carried away with getting on to the opponents' side of the map, particularly when no one is there and they are in control of the Splat Zones. I realise my misjudgment, and take the higher ground so that I can try to make amends and ink some turf.

I survive another Splat Bomb rush, which is unlikely and a little thrilling, only to be caught in the sight of a Splat Charger. The same charger splats me again, although doing so keeps another inkling unsplatted, which isn't a bad compromise.

I finally get the drop on the charger, and go on another mini-rampage. I ink a lot of turf, charge my Bubbler, and remember to use my Bubbler. It's all going quite well, except for the score.

We drag the score down to within one point, and force the battle in to extra time. We look to be in a fair position, having some control of the map, but I run out of ink just when I need it. A loss by one, but what a battle!
