Salada de Frutas advance to the Brawl Stars playoffs!

Round 3 saw a total of three matches in which Salada de Frutas advanced to the playoffs, while QuickMind were eliminated.

Because QuickMind surrendered their elimination match versus Balkan Talents, they were disqualified from the league, with 0-3 being their win-to-loss ratio this season. That meant that Balkan Talents would get their first win, even though they didn’t play a match today. When talking about the lower half of the bracket, it is worth mentioning that Lightning Strike suffered a hard loss against Mayoi and are now a part of the 1-2 pool.

Lightning Strike’s player, sumke, recently stated that this would be their most important match this season, and it certainly didn’t end up well for them. In the meantime, as also stated by sumke, Salada de Frutas kept their incredible form and dominated Winx Club in the winners’ decider match. Omert4 ended their day with a win as well, and their opponents, Dominjo Carry, are now just a step away from being eliminated from the eighth A1 Adria League season. With this round behind us, Mayoi, Winx Club, and Omert4 have the highest chances of reaching the playoffs, where Salada de Frutas will be waiting for them. On the other hand, it is possible that two out of three teams in the 1-2 pool (Lightning Strike, Dominjo Carry, Balkan Talents) will leave the League in Round 4. Make sure to tune in next Thursday and support your favorite team – it will only get tougher and tougher!

These are the current Brawl Stars standings:

sumke, Lightning Strike: “We will probably be the ‘underdogs’ [this season]”

Ahead of the third Brawl Stars round which will decide the first playoffs team as well as the first eliminated squad, we took the time to talk with sumke, one of Lightning Strike’s players. sumke had a lot to say about the team’s recent two matches against Balkan Talents and Salada de Frutas, so without further ado, you can read the interview below:

Is this your team’s first time in the A1 Adria League? How is it, playing in a regional Brawl Stars tournament of this caliber?

So far we played a couple of qualifiers under a different name and/or roster, and I hope that this roster will achieve the most. It is really competitive, a lot of good teams, every match is interesting, we are really eager to play each match and we are playing fully focused.

You started off the group stage with a clean win over Balkan Talents. What made you such a better team than BalkanTalents? What were their main mistakes?

Yeah, we had an excellent start in the SWISS group with a win. Our Balkan Talents opponents played really well. They started the match with a win on Heist and during the second Heist match, we were losing with over 50% more than a minute. We stayed focused and didn’t give up until the very last second when we won by just 2%. They could have easily taken the match, but a little bit of luck helped us win that set and later on win the third one, in which we were the better team.

The next mode was Bounty, we had the advantage, so we made a mistake and lost, then they changed the composition which was not good, if they stayed the same they might have beaten us, we won that match, and then the third Bounty game with the same compositions, this time we figured out a mistake from the first game, corrected it, and routinely defeated them and then the total was 2-0 for us in the sets.

The last mode was Brawl Ball, we played Brawl Ball with more confidence, we had a big advantage. In the first Brawl Ball match we read their draft, we had a counter with Piper against Bella, we broke down the most important walls, then scored a goal and kept control until the end and calmly brought the match to an end. As for the second match, also the last one, this time they had a counter, they had to win that match to have some chances to come back, again as in the first, we scored a goal, kept control and in the end won. I think that individually here I and my two teammates played quite well, which was crucial in the victory, and in the end, we got Balkan Talents with a 3-0 overall result.

Next up in Round 2, you unfortunately lost to Salada de Frutas, the favorites for this season. What factors make Salada de Frutas the dominant force they have been this entire season?

That’s right, we lost against Salada de Frutas 3-0. There are many reasons for the defeat, we did not practice enough together and analyze the maps, our compositions were not good and we did the bans badly as well. I don’t have much to say on the game grab, they were more dominant in both matches and deservedly won, the big mistake on Siege was that we didn’t ban Piper or Brock, because we know that Andrey and John are great with them, although the first Siege match we lost with 76% when we had a bad defense in the second push, in the last push we got a robot and went “all in” and in the end we lost by 1%, only one hit to win was missing. It can be said that we got karma for a similar victory against Balkan Talents. Siege’s next match was much better for us and we won, so that the third game of Salada would turn on the “machine” again with great shots by the whole Salada team and deservedly win. There is only regret for the 1% defeat, because it would be 1-1 in sets.

We took the Hot Zone first, we predicted them and had a counter, then they got with our small mistakes in the second and in the third they predicted us, we made the mistake of taking Emz instead of someone else and that cost us a possible “comeback”. So it was 3-0 for Salad in the end. I was expecting a slightly longer fight with some 3-2 result for us or them, but we weren’t ready for Salad at all. Salada were the best in the qualifiers and now they have a 2-0 score and one win against Winx Club separates them from the Top 4. Factors that make them much better than others are individual skill, as a team they work quite well, have good synergy, invest a lot effort and time in the game, before each A1 matchday they play a lot of scrimmages, analyze matches and are constant.

Which four teams do you think will make it through to the playoffs?

In my opinion, I am 99% sure that Salada and Winx Club will make it through, and as for the last two places, Omert4 will probably be one of them and I hope that we will be one of them as well. Ahead of us is in my opinion the most important match against Mayoi which we must win if we want to get to the Top 4.

What are your chances of reaching the playoffs and winning the entire event?

League of Legends

Over the last month, we hosted a total of four qualifiers for League of Legends teams from all over the region. Four weeks later and here we are – right before the beginning of the regional playoffs stage. This Saturday, the first matches of this stage will be broadcast and we will start our journey of finding the new regional LoL champion. These are the eight teams that qualified for this season of the A1 Adria League:

Lupus eSports
Metamoon
Harmony
49% winrate
Fantastic Esports
Mafija Lebrinyja
gross gore’s psychiatrists
Milex21’s party

CS:GO

Sunday was the day when we said goodbye to Zero Tenacity. The organization that just entered CS:GO unfortunately had to leave the league after suffering a 1-2 loss to their opponents, JESTE. Going forward to Round 4, Marten Gaming and JESTE will fight for survival, while PORTUGAL will try to enter the playoffs by defeating SKUAK Gaming. Make sure to tune in to the stream on Sunday and support your favorite teams once again:

Winx Club and Salada de Frutas in the 2-0 SWISS pool

Two weeks in and we already know which two teams currently have the highest chances of qualifying for the playoffs. Here is how today’s Brawl Stars matches concluded.

Brawl Stars started out with a clash between Mayoi and QuickMind. With both teams losing their opening match, this was the match that would decide which team would fall down to the 0-2 pool. After the match’s conclusion, we saw that that team will be QuickMind, who lost the duel without winning a single mode. Unlike last week, we didn’t see four clean sweeps this time around. Even more, the second match between Omert4 and Winx Club went to the very last mode. In the end, Winx Club barely squeezed past their opponents and became the first 2-0 team for the season.

Back to the losers’ half, Dominjo Carry and BalkanTalents played a total of two modes. As one of BalkanTalents’ players was unable to complete the whole match, the team was forced to forfeit. This meant a 3:0 victory for Dominjo Carry who would have probably won the match anyway, seeing as the result at the time of the forfeit was 2:0 in their favor. In the final match of the day, Salada de Frutas outperformed Lightning Strike and closed out this playday with a win.

These are the current Brawl Stars standings:

This week in A1AL: Two spots remain in the LoL league!

Ahead of us is the week that will decide the final two League of Legends teams. In the meantime, CS:GO, FIFA and Brawl Stars continue with the SWISS stage.

Brawl Stars

The first Brawl Stars round was indeed a quick one. Every single one of the four played matches ended with a clean sweep for the favorite team. With no upsets in Round 1, the leaderboard is currently split in half with the dominant teams claiming the 1-0 spots. This week, four new matches will decide which teams will go a step closer to elimination or the playoffs, respectively. Salada de Frutas versus Lightning Strike and Omert4 vs Winx Club – which two teams will advance to the 2-0 pool? What about the matches in the 0-1 SWISS pool? Here are the four matches in this second round:

QuickMind vs. Mayoi
Omert4 vs. Winx Club
BalkanTalents vs. Dominjo Carry
Salada de Frutas vs. Lightning Strike

FIFA

Similar to Brawl Stars, there weren’t major upsets in the first FIFA22 SWISS round either. However, the matches were definitely much closer than in Supercell’s arena brawler and we are eagerly expecting Friday, when the second round will take place. Once again, Tarik “amke2001” Novo and Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac will be paired against each other. Petar “DrPecho” Šušnjar will try to defeat Đorđe “JasikFifa” Cumbo, while Harun “Hara” Parla’s opponent this playday will be Esad “esad1memic” Memić. And in the very end, Haris “edenn95” Lukomirak will try to get his first win for this season versus Emir “Sulja13” Suljović.

CS:GO

We are halfway done with the third CS:GO round and we already know the first playoffs team. That team is none other than iNation, the A1 Adria League first-timers who beat PORTUGAL in the deciding BO3 duel. The second Serbian team that competed in that playday, 4glory, also took a W last Sunday, and their victims were SKUAK Gaming. This week, one of our matches will be between 1-1 teams – Marten Gaming and BLUEJAYS. While it is an important match, everything isn’t on the line yet for these teams. The same can’t be said about JESTE and Young Glorians (who recently became a part of Zero Tenacity).

 Marten Gaming vs.  BLUEJAYS
rs JESTE vs.  Young Glorians

League of Legends

One qualifier separates us from the regional League of Legends playoffs. That means that the Adriatic teams have only one more chance to make it through to the League. Last time, Fantastic Esports and Mafija Lebrinyja triumphed over every other team in the qualifiers and secured the fifth and sixth League spots.

Four clean sweeps in the first Brawl Stars round!

A quick playday is behind us, as all four Brawl Stars matches ended with a clean sweep for the favorites.

Our first match of the SWISS stage was between Lightning Strike and BalkanTalents. The former started the string of 3-0’s we saw this playday. Lightning Strike were better than BalkanTalents in every aspect and their opponents were unable to get even a single mode. The qualifier leaderboard leaders, Salada de Frutas, once again affirmed their favorite spot and their victims today were Dominjo carry. It seems like Dominjo wasn’t able to carry anyone and the team is now in the 0-1 pool.

Do you think two sweeps are enough? The other winning teams certainly didn’t think so. Omerta had a great time versus Mayoi and in the final match of the day, Winx Club were quicker to win the three modes than QuickMind and close out the first playday of this season. With these four matches behind us, the favorites have earned their first victories. You can watch this playday below:

Who can stop Salada de Frutas in the Brawl Stars group stage?

Six qualifiers ended and eight teams qualified. Who will be the Brawl Stars squads that will advance to the A1 Adria League playoffs?

Salada de Frutas are a class above the competition!

Salada de Frutas had an absolutely flawless qualifying phase this season. With a total of 410 points and four wins in the six qualifiers, the team had no competition during the qualifiers, with their only loss being a forfeit. We can all judge just how better they are by the number of points they got – 410. That is 110  points more than what our second-placed team earned, Omert4. Third on the leaderboard were BalkanTalents, a Brawl Stars squad that had a great start in the qualifiers but failed to reach any higher on the leaderboard. Winx Club, another team that has been putting up great results since the beginning is tied wti hBalkanTalents

Lightning Strike, Mayoi, QuickMind, and Dominjo carry complete the list

A name already familiar on the scene, Mayoi will be making an appearance in the A1 Adria League this season as well. Here we saw another tie and this time around, Mayoi and QuickMind couldn’t overcome each other and ended up with 130 points each. Lightning Strike are right in front of them with a total of 170 points next to their name. Last but certainly not least, Dominjo carry will be fighting for their spot in the playoffs in the upcoming month of SWISS playdays.

Brawl Stars

OMERT4 conclude the Brawl Stars qualifying stage with a win!

A week later than FIFA, Brawl Stars has also concluded its qualifying phase. Here is what happened in our last qualifier for the season!

BalkanTalentsEsport had a great sixth qualifier. Their first opponents were Ez Clappers, whom BalkanTalentsEsport bested with ease. Next, they faced pop off, another team with a similar number of points. After they won that duel, they were the first team to advance to one of the semifinals, and their final enemies before the grand finals were Dominjo carry. Dominjo carry were ready to make a finals appearance after going throughout the entire qualifier without many problems, but BalkanTalentsEsport stopped them in their tracks.

A thing unseen so far in the eighth season happened today. Salada de Frutas, the absolute favorites of this season, didn’t want to play today and gave free win to Omert4 in the earlier stages of the qualifier. OMERT4 also outplayed Winx Club and Reborn Legends Esports. The final qualifier of this season concluded with a great match between OMERT4 and BalkanTalentsEsport, and together with Inder45, we watched how both teams fought fiercely to get the last 100 points. Omert4 succeeded in defeating BalkanTalentsEsport and claimed the prize in the end.

 

With the qualifying phase coming to an end, we know the eight SWISS stage participants:
