Supporting from the back in Tower Control (16-6, Kelp Splat Charger)

21st November 2017 – 7.00 pm

Shooting an inkling in the back may not be honuorable, but it clears the Tower and gets me a good first sighting splat, and is leagues better than my first Sprinkler throw. My second splat is pretty good in and off itself, encouraging me to move forwards a bit to support the team, but not too far. I am also aware of the E-litre 3K on the yellow team, who I try to shoo with a Killer Wail. He evades that, unlike the Grim Range Blaster, who wanders in to its fading wail, right after blasting me to ink.

All looks quiet for a bit, so to keep things moving I drop down and move on to the Tower. That's when I find out where the E-litre 3K has got to, and that maybe sitting back was working quite well. The E-litre 3K clears the Tower again, but I know from where, so when I hop when he isn't expecting, I get the drop on him. That was satisfying, which, along with a Sprinkler splat, makes me worry less about skidding right off the Tower in the Blaster's splat cam.

The Grim Range Blaster looks slippery himself, but outside of his ink I get a clean shot. And although this far we have done well to keep the yellow team back, at least their Splattershot has decided to be a bit more aggressive. I would say it works, as she manages to advance the Tower further than so far in the battle. I splat her anyway, because she's on the wrong team.

My Killer Wail charges as the Tower moves forwards, and I think about pointing it towards the source of the yellow Killer Wail. But I think again, and play the odds. It works better than expected, splatting three yellow inklings, only missing the E-litre 3K. I correct that when we keep the push going, aiming up through the grate to splat the E-litre 3K and a returning inkling with one shot. Nice!

The Splattershot pays us a visit again, and I don't quite get my aim right. My Killer Wail hits my target, though, splatting the E-litre 3K away, although a bit late to keep our push going. But we get another push going, with the E-litre 3K further back, so that when the battle comes to a close we have a good lead, and only need a little defence, coupled with a tinge of desperation from the yellow team, to secure the victory. Woomy!
