Hitting the front in Rainmaker (8-1, Carbon Roller Deco)

23rd November 2017 – 7.00 pm

Okay, I don't hit the front immediately, but that's because I've found it a great way to get splatted for nothing. Inking the channels with Seekers sets a better foundation. As a squidmate grabs the Rainmaker, I jink this way and that, trying to find the best route forwards, and decide on one of my Seeker trails.

I think I'm going to find that charger, but they turn in to a Carbon Roller, which is a bit more formidable close up. Still, some frantic flicking gets me the splat, and lets me move up behind two unsuspecting inklings. Those splats are easier.

A Seeker Rush keeps things green, but I stop short when I see a Killer Wail being aimed. I don't stop it, but I stop the inkling behind it. It seems a Seeker hits an unknown target too, which is nice. The Rainmaker goes forwards, as I and a squidmate try to find a Carbon Roller. I assume my squidmate manages it, as I don't, but I am also not splatted.

The Rainmaker's shield is a lost cause, so I just retreat to avoid the explosion. We're in a good position to just poke the defences too, and another Seeker Rush comes to my aid. I sneak around the side and splat the Carbon Roller, and push the Squiffer backwards. Rather than chase a pointless splat, I do the sensible thing and ink the ramp up to the podium.

With the podium inked, I drop down and provide some more forwards pressure. Even though I get splatted, it does the trick. I get the attention of three inklings, whilst a squidmate dunks the Rainmaker. Woomy!
