Re: Red Alert Global League: Season 11 - Weekly Highlights

Week 8 This week was the first week of the playoffs, and featured the two semi-final matches. As for last season's highlights, I've made a half-hearted effort to hide the number of games in each best-of-5 by linking to dummy ladder games for any unplayed games. Kav vs Upps (Masters Semi-Finals) Liv...

Re: Red Alert Global League: Season 11 - Weekly Highlights

Week 6 Week 6 was meant to be a busy week since Minions had two scheduled fixtures per player, but it turned out to be the quietest week so far. Masters Match of the Week There were only two Masters games, but both of them were brilliant. It was actually pretty hard to choose between them, but I en...

Re: Red Alert Global League: Season 11 - Weekly Highlights

Week 5 This was another action-packed week with interesting games in all three divisions. Several delayed games were played and several scheduled games were delayed. Masters Match of the Week First up we have last season's Minions B champion against the third place from Masters, Pinkthoth vs Upps (...

Re: Red Alert Global League: Season 11 - Weekly Highlights

Week 4 After last week's lull in Masters this week has seen a bumper pack of quality games. Even some of the games I've not mentioned could have made it into the top three in previous weeks. Masters Match of the Week Many people have these two as favourites for this season's title, and their group ...

Re: Old replays?

So I assume people drop out when they realise they're not doing so well? IMO this isn't usually the case. Most players are happy to try to complete their season even if they're not going to win their division. In Masters then there are usually a lot of players who can get into the top four for the ...

Re: Old replays?

That was all the replays from last season. In fact there are quite a few more on JaZz's server than were available via ragl.org because I'd already downloaded some replays that became unavailable when players got a season forfeit. Last season there were 14 players who dropped, compared with 23 playe...

Re: Updating Official OpenRA RA map pool

I just wanted to re-recommend the 5p FFA map that Net mentioned: https://resource.openra.net/maps/43225/

and the 1v1 naval map that Sarah mentioned: https://resource.openra.net/maps/40463/ (This has been frequently in the RAGL highlights of the week).

Glicko2 Ratings

To seed players for RAGL S11 we combined the history of games played in RAGL and on the Ladder to create a data set of about 3400 1v1 games covering almost five years. We used the Glicko2 algorithm with a one week period and the default parameters to process these and to assign a rating for each pla...

Re: Red Alert Global League: Season 11 - Weekly Highlights

Week 3 This week has seen a slight drop in activity in Masters - only three matches were recorded this week. This was partially due to a motherboard issue and partially due to the players being really busy. Also it's worth noting that some of the matches scheduled for this week have already been pl...

Week 2 Here are this week's highlights. I've included links to the replays, but on Chrome you'll have to copy/paste the link as it blocks insecure http links on a secure https page. This week has seen two more players dropping - happy, due to collected strikes and ZxGanon, by request (his own). The...

Extra Highlight In a break from tradition I'm adding in an extra highlight from week 1. The reigning champion Goat is back, but what sort of form is he in?

Spoiler Free RAGL S11 Replays

So - this post is actually just a reply to Loeffer who messaged me but has their private messages disabled. I don't think they will mind me posting this snippet from the PM to explain the problem: Hi TTTPPP, I'm looking for a place to download the RAGL11 replays from without knowing the end result o...

Re: Red Alert Global League: Season 11 - Registrations

The rules around how the RAGL divisions are drawn up are not particularly easy to follow, so I thought it would be worth going through the decision making process for drawing up the divisions for this season. To start with let's look at rule 1.3.9: 1.3.9 Due to the nature of the League, actual promo...
