Going behind the lines in Splat Zones (7-3, Tri-slosher)

20th June 2017 – 7.00 am

My gambit to go around the back pays off quite well. We lose the Splat Zones initially, and the green team takes an early but minor lead, but I get behind the opposition and get a triple-splat and help take control of the Splat Zones whilst they are all out of commission.

The lead is ours almost immediately. Our counter ticks down a significant way before the Splat Zones are neutralised, and shortly re-taken by the green team. I'm caught by a good charger shot, and from behind by some neat flanking, but my own flanking splats the three inklings a second time, two of them oblivious to my approach.

It's a bit embarrassing to run out of ink and still slosh for so long, but so it goes. The battle is soon over, with little more pressure coming from the green team. But looking at the results shows why: the Carbon Roller took no part in the battle.

The Roller was in the previous match battling normally. But it can be seen that she simply threw herself out of the arena from start to finish, her first suisplat happening after five seconds and not relenting. They pretty much spoilt the battle for both sides. Ah well.
