Asserting my turf in Splat Zones (4-1, Kelp Splat Charger)

11th October 2017 – 7.00 am

I head to a decent perch for my Kelp Splat Charger, and immediately ignore the Splat Zones. I assume my squidmates know what they're doing, so I start trying to control the channels visible to me, to prevent purple ink from coming in. This obviously doesn't sit well with at least one purple inkling, who makes a move to oust me, but I dodge his Suction Bomb and, well, get splatted anyway from the one I didn't see.

But that position looks good, so I head back there, Splat Zones nice and green. They turn purple with a concerted effort, and although we neutralise the Splat Zones soon enough, we have a buffer to work through. I remember my Sprinkler again, and try desperately to get enough ink for one so that I can help passively with inking the Splat Zones, but manage instead to get a Killer Wail first. Fair enough.

My Killer Wail does little, but it keeps a channel clear, which lets me focus on trying to counter a Suction Bomb Rush. It doesn't work, mostly because I get distracted by purple inklings on the moving platform. I get a nice splat on a flying squid, though. I think that inkling comes back to get me to move, lobbing Suction Bombs my way. I do better than he does, thanks to a Killer Wail.

Left alone, I ink the Splat Zones and the channels, and keep trying to get a decent Sprinkler. The third one is good, and even gets me a splat simultaneously as I get an splat with my Splat Charger. Just in time to inflate my numbers too, as the battle ends with our knockout moments later. Woomy!
