RAGL Season 10 Weekly Highlights

Post by TTTPPP »

Week 1

Last season then there was a feeling that something missing was Netnazgul's weekly Frontline reports. I don't think I can get anywhere near to that level of quality and play my matches but I wanted to publicise some highlights for anyone to catch up on. I'm also aiming to do this in a spoiler-free way, so that you won't know whether to expect an epic tier three struggle or an MCV-sell all-in. If you want to watch more games then they're all available (along with the current score boards) on the RAGL site: http://ragl.org/

Week 1 has seen the standard number of Masters delays, and there has only been a single match. Consequently Happy vs Goat is the Masters highlight for this week:

Week 2

I thought the start of season Masters delays would be over by now, as players must be fairly familiar with the maps. However this week has seen no games in Masters at all - an achievement not seen since Season 5. Fortunately there have been quite a few Minions games (particularly in Minions Alpha), so this week we have:

Masters Minions Match of the Week

MR C-spetsnaz84 (Minions A)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/48858e7943ad6384 ... 69a93c2ce1
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/0ef5f495a2c0a92b ... 33c68dfac7

Best of the Rest

I thought about it and decided that I'm not above putting myself in the highlights, so here's another game from spetsnaz84, but this time against me.

spetsnaz84-TTTPPP (Minions A)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/0f98b5cc52fd457a ... 70eb19a8bd
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/27ed5ce7267760a7 ... fafd772bd8

Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/8a61f981d50439b4 ... 9a690ba1ad

As I mentioned before, feel free to link to other highlights. I watched quite a few games, but I've probably missed some good ones!

Week 3

This week the Master's players collectively decided to take a break from RAGL, so there were no matches. This is now officially the slowest start to a season ever for Masters and has equalled the longest spell without any Masters matches (which was in Season 5).

Minions Match of the Week

copla201-Eugenator (Minions A)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/17f3839d19d2c53a ... d86504640a

Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/a82c7ec82a891d05 ... 355a066aa9

Honourable Mentions

This week also featured someone breaking Goremented's perfect record (I'll leave out the exact details to preserve a bit of suspense if you've not watched it). In addition game 2 of this match was entertaining, and it narrowly missed out on a spot above:

Kaution-Kernel Panic (Minions B)

Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/68bb99abd13141a6 ... 36f6ee77f5

As always then feel free to post links to other games you thought were good!

Nice work, thanks. Glad to see this is kept going. I might even watch some of these myself :D
Unfortunately, the rules for match scheduling only made the continuity of such endeavor worse as Masters games aren't played until the end of the season...

Week 4

After several weeks of delays I was expecting to write about more records being broken in Masters, but on Saturday three of the matches were played. This combined with the general quality of some of the Minions games means that we've got a bumper pack of highlights.

Masters Match of the Week

KSK_Nico-Mr Cloudy (Masters)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/200a3aefbf4ba702 ... 39c14a5f34
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/cf766aa00aca44d5 ... 49cc3d6eb5

Best of the Rest

Bug announced the second game of this match as his "new favourite most hated game of all times", so it's automatically a highlight.

Kernel Panic-vvoj (Minions B)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/bb457fd48e299bea ... 2e7a20fc5c
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/84b936868fb24583 ... 9ad7e5fefa

This second game I expected to be match of the week before the flurry of games on Saturday:

Mo-SlickSloth (Minions A)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/95cc9f64a10be925 ... d7179332ed
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/b1cd1d078a29b2a7 ... a3daf04c33

Honourable Mentions

Maybe this should really be a dishonourable mention, but goat vs Bain had a great first game followed by a "noteworthy" second:

goat-Mr Cloudy (Masters)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/99effafed4751c23 ... c72170c7e7
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/8c3a0e53386e12f2 ... 2200506a3e

Finally I also wanted to include this game which was good enough to be Match of the Week last week, but got slightly drowned out by the quality of games this week:

spetsnaz84-TiTo (Minions A)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/753577c48448b760 ... c46a430e6d

Week 5

We're roughly half-way through the season now, and the big news this week is a new playtest! Consequently for this week I've included a mention of which playtest you need to watch each replay with.

Masters Match of the Week

Three more games for us this week as Blackened, goat and Sigil play their three matchups. For me this was the highlight:

Blackened-Sigil (Masters - playtest-20210131)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/8290fde318836133 ... df6e460f29
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/7a8742beda153c99 ... d835a37eac

Best of the Rest

And other than the Masters games then this is quite a Mo-heavy replay pack.

Mo-spetsnaz84 (Minions A - playtest-20201213)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/710e9eb79b637b3d ... 78467684a4
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/ad78dcf17cd0e223 ... 3898c255e0

copla201-MR C (Minons A - playtest-20201213)

Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/cdb9ad8e3ede9a7d ... 0ba7a4e8f8

Honourable Mentions

A couple more Mo games narrowly missing out on a spot:
Mo-TiTo (Minions A - playtest-20201213)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/179ae58ee329b4c5 ... 87f99ee42f
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/c740ae5724e3f311 ... f1ff93b954

Eugenator-Mo (Minions A - playtest-20201213)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/6f35623eaaa7e587 ... e7da9ee14c
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/2f55f71f3e2557b8 ... ec59313b12

Finally, on a personal note, my second game against Mo was a fun one:
Mo-TTTPPP (Minions A - playtest-20201213)
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/63837bab9adf9787 ... 9b7ca8981c

Week 6

Minions A is starting to wind down now as almost all the remaining games involve players that have been very inactive. To balance this we've had a record-breaking four games from Masters this week.

Masters Match of the Week

Blackened-FiveAces (Masters)
Cast by Kaution: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=laVd3WJSRWA
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/b03372e84241a576 ... 1bc87b64c9
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/c1e48273bac6ecaa ... 83797abb49

Best of the Rest

A couple more highlights from Masters, starting with another good match involving FiveAces.

FiveAces-KSK_Nico (Masters)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/04977f5c4f5b39e4 ... c1b5813fa3
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/0401f77256ea5293 ... 911e21ba38

Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/27ab37b84003ea89 ... 3aba1f1b12

Honourable Mentions

These two matches each had one nice game, and one which was a bit more one sided.

copla201-TTTPPP (Minions A)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/2e1cf93960d01c78 ... 73d1bde019

Pinkthoth-vvoj (Minions B)

Week 7

"As we head towards the end of the season we're now experiencing a sudden surge in Masters games..." is how I wanted to start this entry. Instead we've had a total of five games, three of which are from Minions Alpha which is pretty much finished. Anyway - since there was only one game in Masters then it's easy to pick this week's:

Masters Match of the Week

FiveAces-Sigil (Masters)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/15a02117aabdfdfe ... 91674d4dfa
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/824f965b75b17356 ... d18c0525a6

Best of the Rest

Goremented-Mo (Minions A)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/03718eaeba9bb106 ... 14a623eb93
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/534e423892523172 ... 27d92ba105

We also have Top vs Bottom in this next match-up. Generally Top vs Bottom games end up with a one-sided match, but MR C is probably the most improved player this season and does himself proud in this game:

Goremented-MR C (Minions A)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/71fc06b1ebbffdc0 ... e5f0ce02c3
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/97cad50e9b91daac ... 11af1daa1a

Honourable Mention

I wanted to include one half of a match from Minions Alpha - this one was quite a ride.

Mo-MR C (Minions A)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/7dd8f1c7a4277c5c ... 0bd6307163

I also feel obligated to mention Kaution-shavkat (Minions B), since it's the only match that hasn't been listed so far. It wasn't the most exciting of matches, but I'm hopeful that we'll see more games from both players in future.

Week 8

We've had a great week of matches this week, many of them coming in the last couple of days. Upps and i like men have both played matches which means that everyone in Masters has started the season. Despite some great play from them I thought that Bain vs Sigil was the highlight of this week:

Masters Match of the Week

Mr Cloudy-Sigil (Masters)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/040518d458a4b823 ... eec9a4a404
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/63617f7d5b54e8c2 ... 8bb5f0c7c5

Best of the Rest

I'm not sure if anyone's going to stream this first game - Kaution already did an analysis cast of it. Anyway - both games were really entertaining.

Kaution-vvoj (Minions B)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/63d190ce9948425b ... c9479aaca4
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/468e6eb949ca0488 ... 2ca556007b

KSK_Nico-Sigil (Masters)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/8b410e5601be80b3 ... 8bc411bdbe
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/302cc9a9586bd837 ... 79b4720a3b

Honourable Mentions

I had this in the top three matches until last night.

vvoj-worldpeace (Minions B)
Game 1: http://ragl.org/replay/b2e4ee5e4060171e ... 3e09256c98
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/919ed4f5281c9d02 ... 68a10869c8

Finally a nice game following what looked like an easy win in the first game:

Mr Cloudy-Upps (Masters)
Game 2: http://ragl.org/replay/bb04f82e94269a00 ... 5d1affbf1d

There's a lot still to play for in Masters - the playoff spots are wide open and we're getting to the end of the group stage. In theory this coming week should be packed with matches.
