Causing trouble in Tower Control (11-4, Tri-slosher)

28th January 2017 – 7.00 am

I'll have a quick go with the bucket before I call it a night. I decide to go along a side route, which should give me good visibility of the Tower before I drop down in to trouble. All looks clear, and I'd like to cross the map to see if I can take care of the E-litre 3K on the other team.

I run in to trouble, but a sturdy shirt and using my Tri-slosher well gets me out of it. I go on my way, and look for the E-litre 3K. Literally look for her. She's quite a way back, and why not? That charger has a long range.

There's an extra inkable block, though, and if the charger is using a scope, maybe I can sneak underneath her. A blaster drops in front of me, and I can't resist. I have to follow a little to get the splat, and that must have given the game away for the E-litre 3K, I think to myself. Nope!

That puts me in harm's way, but I'm ready for it this time. Rather than stay there I cross the gap, like a daredevil, and splat the E-litre 3K again. Nice! But just as I cause trouble for the teal team, I cause trouble for my own.

The Tower is under the teal team's control and heading further in to our territory. I forget that I can super-jump again, but am hoping to find the E-litre 3K hanging back. No such luck, she's on the Tower. At least I get back to help stop the Tower, but not before we lose the lead. Oops.

That Kraken is smart, running away from my Bubbler. I could learn from him. So I continue on my way, and catch the E-litre 3K again, although not entirely unawares. The ink I get on me causes my splatting as the super-jumping inkling lands.

We get a good go at riding the Tower, and I try to help in my own way. I could help harder by riding the Tower myself, but this doesn't seem to be one of those battles. That's a shame, because I head off to splat the E-litre 3K, wherever she is, instead of regaining control of the abandoned Tower, which trundles back to the centre of the map.

A fun battle, with a bunch of splats, but one where I perhaps ignored the objective a little too much.
