Settling in to a groove in Splat Zones [13(4)-2, Splattershot Jr]

13th January 2018 – 7.00 am

Caution doesn't really pay off at the start of this battle. The green team lunge for the Splat Zones, capture them, and hold us off successfully. It's hard to know what to do differently sometimes. I look for another angle and hit the flank, and although that catches the Squiffer's attention, it takes some pressure off the Splat Zones. My squidmates take that opportunity to capture them.

We press up and keep the pressure on nicely, taking the lead. I push my luck a bit, and charge head-on in to ink, naturally getting me splatted. Not too smart! The green team do a good job of recapturing the Splat Zones, giving us a buffer, but we apply the pressure back and make them purple again. I drop down from the bridge at the right moment to stop a Curling Bomb Rush, and catch a super-jumper, but only manage a stalemate with the Squiffer.

The Squiffer doesn't want a draw and comes looking for me. He gets too close, though, and is punished. Holding the high turf looks like a good idea, but you really can't see what's happening under the bridge, which I realise when the green team capture the Splat Zones. I drop down to help out, spreading purple ink and looking for splats. I find quite a few too!

I keep to the purple ink, whilst maintaining our turf and pushing for more where I can, and we keep hold of the Splat Zones successfully. I'm trying to stay away from the Aerospray, whilst dropping Splat Bomb lures, as we win the knockout victory. Woomy!
