Mostly holding back in Splat Zones (2-1, Splatterscope)

23rd October 2016 – 7.00 pm

I've had a run of victories with the Tri-slosher, and am getting dangerously close to S Rank again. I can't have that, so I swap back to the Splatterscope, partly for practice, partly because I think I'll fare worse than with the Tri-slosher and maybe get some losses.

Not that I want to lose as such, and definitely won't throw the battles. And it's a little backwards, wanting to end the session with some losses rather than wins. But let's see how it goes first.

I want to take a cautious approach, certainly with Blackbelly Skatepark, and I've been paying attention to where the opposition chargers tend to perch in these Splat Zones battles. I give it a go.

There is good coverage with the Splatterscope from this position, whilst offering a good degree of protection. I am fairly deep in our own territory, and can keep an eye on the gamepad for any ink trails coming my way. I even have a view of a favourite perch of the other side's, and dissuade a Splatling from parking there.

All goes relatively well, and we hold on to the Splat Zones without much interruption. I even move forward near the end of the battle, getting a good splat in doing so, but feeling vulnerable. But not for long, as we get the victory. Woomy!
