Finding some breathing room in Splat Zones (7-4, Tri-slosher)

24th July 2017 – 7.00 pm

I'm back in S Rank, and not faring too well overall. I pull out the Tri-slosher in a bid to be as competent as possible, but it doesn't always work. Thankfully, my squidmates know what they're doing, and take care of things whilst I squid around being target practice for the blue team.

At least I can add my ink to the Splat Zones fairly effectively, although I really should avoid squidding through them, as being splatted makes a big blue splotch in my wake. When everything is a little calm, I can even lie in wait for the Luna Blaster to appear, and get a lucky splat. A Disruptor on the .52 Gal doesn't go astray either, even if I make a mess of the Splat Zones again as a result.

I get a break when my squidmates are catching the blue team's attention and an Instrike hits the Splat Zones. One inkling is beneath the blue E-litre 3K, and my sloshing catches both slightly unawares. That lets me move around to where another inkling rather incautiously launches an Inkstrike in the open. And, with my Bubbler going, I go looking for the Luna Blaster, just about squidding past her blast to get the quad. Nice!

I keep the streak going for a bit longer. There is a calm as we hold the Splat Zones, and I see the E-litre 3K Burst Bombing her way forwards, catching her with a slosh that looks to finish a splat. Some inky pressure comes from above, but a Disruptor hits nicely. The inkling triggers a Suction Bomb Rush to counter the Disruptor, but some upwards sloshing stops that too. I finally get caught in the back by the Luna Blaster, which was perhaps inevitable.

Our control of the Splat Zones continues, though, and I help cover over the odd Suction Bomb here and there. A Suction Bomb Rush comes flying in, giving me more blue ink to cover. Instead, a Disruptor on the Rusher reduces their mobility, and a squidmate's Inkstrike recovers Splat Zone control.

I surge forwards to see what pressure I can apply to the E-litre 3K again, but the battle is won before I get there. Woomy!
