We are getting closer to finals in the 12th A1 Adria League season. The group stage phase has already kicked off and some teams already secured their spot in the finals, while others are just one step away. Read on to learn what happened in the SWISS group stage round 2 in EA FC 24 and EA FC Mobile, and who was successful in the third group stage round in CS2!
Shaq and Ivand dominant in EA FC Mobile
The second group stage round in the A1 Adria League in EA FC Mobile brought two players closer to securing a spot in the next stage of the competition. Shaq and Ivand have two wins and need only one more to be in the top 4. On the other hand, Destroyer lost another game and is now one step away from elimination. He needs to improve his performance or take his chances in a different EA FC Mobile season.
The same goes for Nerko, who played in the first match of the day against Lazar. Lazar won 3:0 and left Nerko in the danger zone. In the second match, two league favorites Shaq and Kayozz battled it out in a derby match, where the former came out victorious.
EA FC 24 is as intense as ever!
In the first match of the second group stage round, we saw many emotions on the stream between Esad1memic and CLA TH3Prod1gy. It was the latter who managed to score more goals and avoid being 0:2 which can’t be said for Esad. However, this isn’t the first time for the A1AL veteran to be in this position and manage to still secure the top 4.
The second match between two rookies of the league played by OlleDobrinho and NemanjaLS92 finished in the favor of Nemanja who won 2:0. This left Olle in a bad position whereas if he loses another match he is out of the league.
CLA Marac in the third match wins against his countryman and mate from the organization CLA Cyber Fico and is now one step closer to securing the next stage. He now has the overall score of 2:0 while Fico is in solid state with one win and one loss.
In the end, the best! Two familiar names and two rivals Novo and Brstimir went head to head in the biggest match of the week. In the region derby emotions couldn’t be surpressed. Novo opened with a win after which Brstimir retaliated making Novo ragequit. However, he came back and celebrated in the end with a big win. One more and he is in the TOP 4. On the other hand, Brstimir has an overall score of 1:1 and a good chance to advance further.
Z10 is in the top 4; Bonanza eliminated in CS2
Unlike EA FC, CS2 is already playing the third group stage round which brought one elimination and one promotion. Namely, Zero Tenacity, the current champion defender, secured the next stage with 3:0. On the other hand, Bonanza didn’t manage to secure a single win and is out of the competition.
The first match of this round was played between Jake Bube and RUR Esports. It was a close match where RUR had a small early lead. However, at halftime, it was 8:4 for Jake Bube. It was smooth sailing for Jake Bube until 12:7 when RUR attempted to come back into the game and almost managed to reverse the game. However, the score was 12:10 when team Jake Bube secured a win with one more victorious round.
The second match between The Suspects and Megnatos finished fast as one player from Megnatos failed to connect and they had to surrender unfortunately.
The third one was another close match between Salamander and Bonanza on Anubis, Ancient, and Inferno, where Salamander came out victorious with a 2:1 score overall and eliminated Bonanza. Anubis was close until halftime where Bonanza performed better even though their opponents picked the map. After that 13:8 victory things began to go south for Bonanza. Things on Ancient really had an explosive ending. The situation was equal for the most part of the game. Half time was 6:6, after which Salamander won 6 rounds in a row. Then Bonanza woke up and almost evened out the score, it was 12:11. In a 2v2 situation on B Site, Miwo (Salamander) outplays the opponent and wins one for his team. Moreover, the third match was pure domination for Salamander as Bonanza only won 2 rounds in the whole game.
In the fourth and last match, two giants clashed. Zero Tenacity and Partizan Esports played two games on Anubis and Overpass, where both maps went into the hands of the defending champions. On Anubis Z10 was dominant. The half ended in their favor 8:4, as well as the game where Z10 stomped the opponent with a 13:6 score, letting them only two rounds. The second game was even more one-sided with Brutmonster on AWP ending the half with a 9:3 score. Only two rounds were given to Partizan after that and Overpass ended with a 13:5 score.
