Red Alert Global League - Play of the Season 4

Post by noobmapmaker » Sun Oct 08, 2017 2:46 pm

Hey everyone :)

Ok, so we will keep it the Play of the Season! During the season people may nominate a play that is: entertaining - revolutionairy - game winning - game turning - new/daring/crazy strategy - new meta - original - excellent micro - lucky - funny - a nice serie of plays - or whatever you think is worth nominating.

Anyone may nominate anyone's game! Please do nominate your own play if you liked it as we are unable to watch all games and even when we do we might miss a special moment. Don't be humble, help us out! You can also send me a PM if you want to notify me of your play, rather than posting in the topic. Also non-RAGL players can nominate plays.

If you nominate a game, please do it according to this format:
Replayname: [e.g.: RAGL-S01-MASTER-R01-ABC-DEF.orarep] + a link to the .oramap on Jazz's server + name of the map
Reason: [Please provide an explanation why you think it was good, don't forget to use the spoiler tags so that people can safely open this thread]

You can download all RAGL replays from Jazz_KCS fileserver: LINK to RAGL S04 Replays or check out the latest uploads


Season 4 nominees:


Doomsday vs T - R03 - map - Minions - download
Nicely done soviet T2 rush with not much held back

Gatekeeper vs Orb - R03 - Siberian Summer - Masters - download
"wat am I watching" (c) Smitty. Gatekeeper goes blackout with his only powerplant going down to 2 grens and then decides to play all-or-nothing basepush which miraculously succeeds while Orb's force is raiding the remainders of Gatekeeper's main. Orb barely escapes annihilation but the train has already left the station as Gatekeeper capitalizes on his advantage.

Lucian vs MechANIC - R04 - Pitfight - Recruit B - download
nice and timely demo truck dumped into the middle of mechANIC's blob

FiveAces vs Orb - R04 - Siberian Summer - Masters - download
FiveAces gave Orb a headstart by forgetting to eco up on the first minutes, but Orb was so busy counter-microing FiveAces' defence moves that FiveAces managed to somehow overthrow the base push on his natural and do a stunning comeback

Craig Christ vs Lucian - R06 - map - RecruitB - download
Spy/Hind combo that allowed Craig Christ to snipe an almost ready Nuclear Silo with a flock of hinds after disabling power.

Gatekeeper vs FiveAces - R06 - A nuclear Winter - Master - download
At the 4:00 mark Gatekeeper uses forcefire into the fog of war as a smart way to win the southern oil derrick.

FiveAces vs Smitty - R08 - Pitfight - Master - Download
Who said that MiGs are useless? How many times have you seen several Vet3 MiGs before? 5A with his 70 Apm shows how to use MiGs properly.

OMnom vs Booby - R10 - Pitfight - Minion - download
Pinpoint micro wins OMnom the game in cutthroat fashion

Booby vs Omnom - R10 - Behind the Veil - Minion - download
Booby's dog is able to both keep one dog busy and kill enemy soldiers at the same time. @ 2:00

FiveAces vs Barf - R10 - Sidestep - Masters - download
Save of the season. Might be more of a luck than play, but still should get at least a nomination. 0hp saved War Factory for FiveAces which incoming Barf forces can't finish off

Smitty vs Barf - R11 - Ysmir - Masters - download
Needing a win to get into the playoffs, Smitty goes harvester hunting.

Kazu vs Sotch - Game3 - Pitfight - Path of the Hidden Master - download
Kazu attacks Sotsch with a nice early attack. Good micro allmost wins the game right away and gives Sotsch a very difficult start.

WarRyker vs BullE - Game4 - Sidestep - Path of the Hidden Master - download
WarRyker doesn't have any expansions, his economy is in crumbles.
All he has is some tech. Yet he is able to come out on top!


Gatekeeper vs Barf - Game1 - Shadow Fiend -Playoffs - download
The game starts of bad for Gatekeeper and he keeps losing ground untill he is in a bad spot. Over time he comes back and wins the game.

Good luck & have fun!!

For anyone wondering how many flame turrets were made, in 42m, I think both sides built a combined total of 95 flame turrets.... I used notepad++ with ctrl+F using the regex "PlaceBuilding.+ftur". Not 100% sure if I parsed the replay correctly (worked on a short dummy replay), but it felt like we built almost a 100 flame turrets...
