No shooters, please, it's Splat Zones (10-3, Tri-slosher)

18th October 2017 – 7.00 am

The other team has brought a shooter to a non-shooter battle. That's not very sporting. I also see the Hydra Splatling. I think I can move more quickly than those weapons and get the drop on them, so slosh my way across the Splat Zones and am pleased when I get a couple of early splats. Getting the Hydra Splatling out of our tentacles should help with early control of the Splat Zones too, but that requires inking them. I turn back to do that, pushing the Slosher away, thanks to my Bubbler, but that pesky Splattershot gets out of my range to splat me first.

Our control of the Splat Zones seems steady, at least. I push past them to look for inklings, but not only do I find none, the Splat Zones turn orange and I am out-ranged by a Roller. Not a great showing. I hit our left flank to try better, making my way to the side of the Splat Zones. Still not really anyone around, but I slosh some ink to prevent another orange takeover.

Moving around sees the Splattershot, but I guess wrongly that he'll squid backwards. It looks like I bypassed the orange team entirely. I head back the way I came, and get one splat approaching the side of a Splash Wall, use Disruptor and Bubbler in the Splat Zones to splat the Slosher, before finally finding the Splattershot. The Splat Zones turn teal in the process, which is good!

Trying to sneak around the back doesn't quite work. I think I may get the drop on the Hydra Splatling by squidding forwards quickly, but she turns in to a Slosher, and becomes somewhat more effective at splatting me. It's a neat trick. I do better avoiding the Slosher when trying to recapture the Splat Zones, slosh my way in to a second splat by accident, and help with the Splat Zones.

I push forwards to capture more turf and make it hard for the orange team to come back, and splat the Hydra Splatling who doesn't quite expect me. But, of course, there is more than one way back to the Splat Zones, so I turn around to check on them. Orange inklings abound! One is splatted away, another is too cautious to throw himself at us. I don't know why, I am not likely to hit him with a Disruptor.

I get bored of the Splattershot, and don't want to run in to his ink, so I check another path instead. Nothing's happening, though, so I go back, just as the inkling pokes out of his hole. That'll do! And with my squidmates taking care of that orange Inkstrike, I pop my Bubbler as a precaution and help keep the Splat Zones teal for the few more points needed for the knockout victory. Woomy!
