Running with the Rainmaker (4-8, Splatterscope)

11th December 2016 – 7.00 am

I get splatted a lot without many splats to show for it, but I am in possession of the Rainmaker quite a lot. Maybe that means I can't aim a massive, rushing tornado of inky doom, but whatever.

That E-litre 3K Scope on the other team is quite intimidating too. But, then, so are the Carbon Roller and Tempered Dynamo Roller. I'm not quite sure how we cope, to be honest. I suppose mostly by neither team moving the Rainmaker very far past the centre.

Still, my squidmates know what they are doing and are pretty good at what they do. Both teams hold their own, giving little more than inches at a time. It's a tight battle, but a mobile one that has all inklings battling fair and doing their best.

Considering how little progress we both make, the battle is a whole lot of fun. Neither team is going for splats, ignoring the objective, and their are earnest attempts to push the Rainmaker with every carry. Maybe not everyone wants to carry the Rainmaker, but I'm there and happy to do it, so that works out too.

The battle ends almost as it starts, as I grab the Rainmaker, but this time keep it safe for a few seconds. We may have only a slight lead, but it's enough.
