Doing just enough in Splat Zones (12-3, Tri-slosher)

15th February 2017 – 7.00 pm

I can get to the Tower in Blackbelly Skatepark quickly, and I think that should serve me well in Splat Zones, particularly with a Tri-slosher. But my ink doesn't quite slosh down on the Roller coming up, and it's a Carbon Roller, so I get splatted pretty quickly. I should practice with that inker more.

My flanking route doesn't seem to get my any joy to start with, but I get around the back unscathed, and even though I don't get immediate splats I am able to apply enough pressure to move the inklings around. And it doesn't take too long before my splat count gets going.

I do a few circuits of the Skatepark, inking a path, getting a splat, avoiding a splat, inking the Splat Zones, and back around again. This goes on for an excellent amount of time too! At one point I do a 180 to try to fake-out the Splat-cam. I wonder if that works.

Just for a change, I go the opposite direction, going backwards along our own flanking route, making a figure-of-eight, I suppose. Even with my Bubbler charged and my reactions working when surrounded by yellow inklings, I come out of a good-looking situation with no splats. But I move on to get one anyway.

Of course, it's the Carbon Roller that eventually splats me. That's okay, I've used it before, and it's not as easy as it looks. And with only seconds remaining, we are able to hang on to our slim lead, and I get one last splat, on the Carbon Roller. Woomy!
