As in previous seasons I'll be posting some of the most entertaining matches I watched each week.
If you want to watch any match (spoiler free) then you can download them from the RAGL site: https://ragl.org/games
Master's Match of the Week
Season 13, as many seasons before, started with a lot of games in Minions and a lot of delays in Masters. There were only three matches in Masters, and this one featured two players promoted from Minions last season - Dodder (Minions S12 3rd place) vs Tux (Minions S12 4th place).

Best of the Rest
After three seasons in Masters, Sigil has dropped down to Minions. Mint meanwhile has been a fairly persistent favourite to get promoted into Masters, but never quite managed it.

Hans has got his season off to a flying start, playing four matches in the first week. As usual it's hard to predict what units he'll be using. Tailix on the other hand has come up from Recruits (there weren't enough registrations to make Recruits viable this season), and can almost be guaranteed to build light tanks.

Technically this game was played in Week 0, before the start of the season, and it made an excellent opening match. Judging by the recent ladder matches, milkman could be one of the most improved players this season:

Another contender for the "most improved" award is chouchani. Here he is against spetsnaz, both of whom have been promoted from Recruits.
