Are you ready for the sixth A1 Adria League Season?

The fifth season of A1 Adria League surprised us all. The new titles – Brawl Stars and FIFA really showed the potential of these games in our region and we are really happy that we chose to feature them. But now, after the season came to an end, it is finally time to announce the sixth season of the A1 Adria League.

Season 6 will be much longer than our previous season and it will have formats that will let us see even more high-quality matches. The prize pool has a massive increase compared to the fifth season, so we encourage everyone to sign up and try their best to win their share of rewards in this season. In the span of the next three months, we will watch the best FIFA, Brawl Stars, Clash Royale, and CS:GO players in the biggest esports competition in our region.

Brawl Stars returns in the sixth Season!

During the last few months, we had the chance to watch the regional Brawlers battle it out in the first-ever A1 Adria League Brawl Stars season. The seven played qualifiers culminated in the double-elimination playoffs that saw the absolute favorites, Alpha Elite, be crowned the first Brawl Stars champions.

The sixth season will feature a similar format to the previous one. Instead of seven, we will now have 13 qualifiers from which the best eight teams will secure a spot in the offline finals. The total prize pool for this season will be €2.600, with the best team bringing home €1.000.

Will Alpha Elite dominate the League once again, or will another team rise up and defeat the reigning champions – sign up and compete with the best

Clash Royale in the sixth season!

Six seasons of A1 Adria League, six seasons of Clash Royale! We will be stepping in the Arena once again after an amazing fifth season with even bigger awards for the best teams. We introduced the team system in Clash Royale in the last season, and the players loved it! The 1v1, 2v2, and KOTH modes let us see many more games being played than usual and PvtMole was there to entertain us and cast the games on an amazing level. In the end, Crusher Esports took the first place while Emperiial and Totem Esports followed at second and third, respectively.

Clash Royale will have the same prize pool as Brawl Stars. We will see a double round-robin format and the playoffs will once again feature the Gauntlet format. The five invited teams will be challenged by the best team from the qualifiers in the Arena. The group stage will last for 10 rounds and we will see the top four teams advance to the LAN finals. In case the offline finals are unable to take place due to quarantine measures, the playoffs will be played online.

Call your teammates, start practicing, and sign up for the only Clash Royale qualifier!

FIFA in the sixth Season!

FIFA made its comeback as a featured game during the last season. The guys from the FIFA Balkan Community along with our staff did a great job of organizing the qualifiers and the playoffs. We saw a massive turn out from the players as everyone was excited to compete in the League and at the very end, esad1memic claimed the first prize. Jasik came close second and amke was the better player in the third-place decider.

As FIFA is a franchise that releases a new version of the game every year, our sixth season will be a bit different from the fifth one. We will have a total of nine qualifiers and three online playoffs series. First, the players will have a chance to compete in FIFA20 and at the end of August one player will secure a spot in the LAN finals. The second trio of qualifiers will be held during September which will see one more FIFA20 player advance to the offline event. As FIFA21 releases on the 6th of October, we will start the last trio of qualifiers on the 10th. The competitors will have their last chance at qualifying during the month of October and in the end, the last two players will earn their spot at the offline playoffs in Zagreb. FIFA will boast a prize pool of €2.150 and we are expecting to see even more players sign up and be a part of the qualifiers!

CS:GO in the sixth Season!

Just like Clash Royale, CS:GO has been with us since the very beginning of the League. The fifth season reminded us yet again of how exciting the regional CS:GO scene really is. lvlUP, Blink, QSKE, and GamerS1337 survived the SWISS Stage and advanced to the double-elimination playoffs. lvlUP played the playoffs with Luka “emi” Vuković and their coach Darko “soLo” Mitić and still managed to outplay their opponents and win the League. Blink came in second, while the Macedonian powerhouse, QSKE, finished as the third-best team of the season.

Blink and lvlUP, the top two sides from the fifth season will receive a direct invite for this upcoming season of the League. The remaining six teams will be decided by a combination of open and closed qualifiers. First, we will host two open qualifiers in which the best four teams from each will advance to the first closed qualifier. The closed qualifier will have a BO3 single-elimination format, and the best three teams will advance to the completely BO3 SWISS League. And if you thought that that is all, you are wrong – we have prepared €11.000 for the very best teams in the League to split between each other.

Brawl Stars

Mayoi finished the sixth qualifier a bit earlier than usual, falling to FA Deadly in the quarterfinals. Mayoi are still second in the overall leaderboard, but Good Game have great chances of overrunning them and securing the second spot. Undefeated outplayed Crna ruka, while Good Game came out as the winners in their match versus Pekari. Alpha Elite remained undefeated and proceeded to the semifinals over Easy Win in the last match of the quarterfinals.

In the first semifinal, FA Deadly beat Undefeated without any problems and secured the first spot in the finals. The ex-Good Game 2 team, now playing as Alpha Elite, dominated the Good Game squad and once again entered the finals of the qualifier.

After a win in the Round of 16, brstimir couldn’t get past arminho0307 and finished the sixth qualifier in the top 8. senozabac advanced to the quarterfinals but couldn’t beat rob1 who won this match after beating Hardi in his top 16 matchup. JasikFIFA and lexylexxx met in the fifth round after victories against Brunoh4545 and eldorado2912, respectively.

JasikFifa was the better football player in this game and advanced to the semifinals. In the Bosnian quarterfinal derby between amke2001 and esad1memic, we had the chance to see esad1memic outplay amke and secure the semifinal match against JasikFifa. esad1memic managed to breeze past Jasik, while in the other semifinal, rob1 bested arminho. At the end of the day, Jasik snatched the third place, while esad1memic finished the qualifier as the champion.

Only two Brawl Stars & FIFA A1 Adria League qualifiers remain before the second stage of the League. Alpha Elite and rob1 once again destroyed the competition and further strengthened their place on the top of the leaderboard.

QSKE Gaming’s Brawl Stars team ended the fifth qualifier in the Round of 16 after a loss to FA Deadly. Good Game bested ULC eSports and Free Agents outplayed Team Placenici without much trouble.

FA Deadly won their duel against MarkoYouTube’s Free Agents and in the last quarterfinal match, Good Game advanced to the semis over Predators.

The first semifinal saw Alpha Elite take a 3-0 victory versus Easy Win. After Mayoi were eliminated earlier in the competition, this served as an ideal chance for Alpha Elite to finally take that first place on the leaderboard. FA Deadly had a stellar performance in their 3-1 victory versus Good Game and secured the second finals spot. Alpha Elite once again topped the qualifiers and added another 100 points next to their name.

Alpha Elite are now in the charge of the Brawl Stars leaderboard with 300 points while Mayoi are close second with 280. Free Agents and Good Game are still pretty close to the first two teams, with 270 and 235 points, respectively. Easy Win are close behind these two, while FA Deadly and So Bad are falling behind more and more every qualifier.

CS:GO qualifiers draw to a close; Brawl Stars and FIFA20 continue!

During the previous week we saw the last CS:GO qualifiers in which we got the remaining four teams for the SWISS League, while Brawl Stars and FIFA had their third qualifier played with more points split between the best teams.


In the third CS:GO qualifier we saw familiar faces make it through to the League. The former Juggernauts player, Luka “c0llins” Živanović secured one of the spots along with his team, Shock Bomb. On the other side of the bracket, QSKE Gaming played a mixed squad containing some of the most famous names in the region, COLOMBIANA. The Macedonian squad managed to breeze past Nemanja “sarenii” Šarenac and COLOMBIANA and take the sixth spot in the upcoming season of A1 Adria League.

The last chance for qualifying was on Sunday when we saw the mix team karavan and the current A1 Adria League champions, Juggernauts, take the two remaining spots. karavan had a really intense match against eSportsKosova in the semifinal, but they managed to slip past their opponents after two overtimes. Juggernauts, on the other side, showed everyone that the champions are back, and even with a new player in David “devoduvek” Dobrosavljević had no problems against the competition.

Brawl Stars

One of the best teams from the previous two qualifiers, Good Game, got upset and eliminated from Crna ruka in their Round of 16 match. GetRekt got wrecked by So Bad, while Alpha Elite managed to get past Banda Kasharit. The modified Free Agents squad lost a tight 2-3 game against FA Deadly and Mayoi secured a spot in the quarterfinals in their match against Predators.

So Bad bested Crna Ruka and Good Game 2 outplayed ULC eSports in the first two quarterfinal games. Come Back had a clean victory against Sabasniper’s Deadly Black squad and in the last game, Mayoi secured a spot as one of the best four teams in the qualifier again.

Good Game 2 definitely had a great run in the third qualifier and a victory versus So Bad earned a spot in the finals for the second Good Game squad. After finishing second in the previous qualifier, Mayoi repeated history once again and finished the third qualifier in second place, after a loss to the newly-formed Good Game 2.

A sudden shuffle caused trouble for a number of Brawl Stars teams

While we were preparing for the third Brawl Stars qualifier, a massive shuffle happened involving some of the current top teams as well as the first-placed team on the A1 Adria Brawl Stars standings – Free Agents.

Good Game formed a second Brawl Stars division

As the first two qualifiers passed, some teams started putting themselves on the leaderboard on their way to the Second Stage of the League. Free Agents, in particular, dominated the whole competition in both the qualifiers, earning themselves all of the 200 possible points. And just like that, everything changed…

Good Game and their current roster are currently fourth on the Brawl Stars standings with a total of 95 points. With the great game they have been showing in recent times, their chances of qualifying are looking great. Even while fielding a great squad, Good Game love the competition A1 Adria League brings so they decided to form a second team.

While one more team in the qualifiers is a great thing for the players, followers, and the League, when it consists of a mix of players from other teams, it can become a problem. The so-called “poaching” of a single player doesn’t impact a team that much, but when you take the core of the team away, it could really become troublesome for the poached side.

Good Game 2 consists of players from Easy Win, No Name, and most notably Free Agents. Easy Win are currently third with 120 points and No Name occupies the fifth place with 80 points, but they will have to continue their qualification road without Ew_Ciro and DzonDzonO, respectively. The real problems come with the two ex-Free Agents’ players, Andreybs_ and ToDe05, who will be finalizing the second Good Game team.

Problems arise for the Free Agents squad

At the moment where the majority of the active players leave the team, the minority that is still playing is left with the current points, but their points stay unchanged. If the players who left the team earn points while playing for another squad, the minority from their previous squad, or what is left from Free Agents, lose all their earned points. This will most certainly be the case for Marko, who is the only active player left in Free Agents, judging by the quality of the players in Good Game 2.

When asked about the current situation, Marko didn’t try to hide his frustration and said that the remaining members of Free Agent will not continue playing the qualifiers, while also mentioning his plans for quitting competitive Brawl Stars. He told me that Andrey had disagreements with the rest of the team and he left in order to further develop, even though Marko believes the team was good enough and they could keep going with the roster they had at the time. The Free Agents player also thinks that Good Game will not equally focus on both teams, but that the second squad was formed in order to destroy the competition and make the matches easier for their main division.

The new Good Game 2 team consists of:

rs DzonDzonO
hr Andreybs_
rs EW_Ciro
rs ToDe05

*MarkoYouTube changed his decision and will continue to play in the third Brawl Stars qualifier along with a modified Free Agents squad. Seeing as two out of the four Free Agents players are still part of the roster, Free Agents will keep their current points.

Inder45: “I think that [our regional players] will be under a lot of pressure because of the prizes they can win”

After the FIFA interview with Maid “Kora_Sensei” Korić, I decided to continue this series of interviews with one of the best regional Brawl Stars players Teo “inder45” Božikov, who is also our commentator for the upcoming A1 Adria League season. Inder is usually in the playing roster of Brawl Stars competitions, so this commentating role is a new experience for him, but as we saw last week, he fits it perfectly. He talked to me about the Brawl Stars competitive scene as a whole, his career in the game, and of course, the details about the approaching fifth season of A1 Adria League.

After featuring Hearthstone in the previous two seasons, A1 Adria League decided to switch the mobile titles a bit and add Brawl Stars to the roster. What made Brawl Stars the perfect candidate for the next two seasons of A1AL?

I think the biggest reason for picking Brawl Stars over Hearthstone was it’s popularity. I would say that in the Balkan region at the moment, Brawl Stars is the most popular mobile game, or at least that’s what I would say if you are looking at YouTubers that create Brawl Stars content. Another good reason would be that Brawl Stars is a 3vs3 game where playing as a team is really important. The matches usually last about 2 minutes and are full of chaos and intense plays which makes it much more interesting to watch than Hearthstone, which is more slow paced game where thinking takes time, while in Brawl Stars you need to think really fast and have great reflexes.

You have played Brawl Stars competitively before. You will take part in the upcoming seasons of A1 Adria League, but in a different role, as a commentator. How different is commentating to actually playing the game and do you miss competing?

It is really different, the biggest difference (besides the obvious) is that I can see the mistakes players make during their match and I’m focused on everything that is happening on the map while as a competitive player that was much harder to do, because games are really intense and you don’t have much time to think and because of that you will probably make a mistake or two that could cost you the match. Yeah I’m definitely sad that I won’t be competing in this season because my team is one of the favorites to win the whole league, but I still wish them good luck and I hope they win.

The company behind Brawl Stars, Supercell, is constantly organizing weekly and monthly cups with various rewards to help the growth of the game’s competitive scene. While worldwide the scene is better than ever, in the Adriatic region we are still in the process of developing a competitive circuit for Brawl Stars. We hope that A1 Adria League will help the players in their paths to a competitive career and we certainly hope on seeing some of you competing at the highest level in the future.

Supercell gives a lot of attention to Brawl Stars when it comes to the esports aspect of the game. Our regional players have had limited chances to take part in a competitive Brawl Stars environment, so what does it mean for them to be able to play Brawl Stars for real prizes?

Yeah, Supercell really loves Brawl Stars and wants to make it their No.1 competitive game. As for our regional players I think they will be under a lot of pressure because of the prizes they can win, but that is good, a bit of adrenaline while you play is something I really like while playing competitive matches.

FIFA has the FBC that immensely helped the growth of competitive FIFA in the Adriatic region. Are there similar communities for Brawl Stars? Are there groups developing and trying to help the growth of the game over here?

Might sound a bit egoistic but I actually created a big league whose purpose was to “wake up” teams in our region and tell them that we can make Brawl Stars an esport in our region as well. I think that helped a lot to form a few teams that are now one of the best in our region, but of course I’m not the only one, there are also others who created their tournaments and helped Brawl Stars develop as an esport over here.

How will the fifth season of A1 Adria League be played out when it comes to Brawl Stars? What format will be used in the qualifiers and in the stages afterward?

I actually really like the format in A1 Adria League. There will be seven online qualifiers in which the teams need to get as much points as they can, and after seven weeks the top 8 teams with the most points will advance to the Online Playoffs where they will compete for really big prizes. As for the in-game format, in the qualifiers it is BO5 in game modes while every game mode is BO1, each team has 1 ban that is global which means that no team can play the banned brawler for the rest of the match.

Anything you want to add and say to the players, followers, and the organization behind this tournament?

For the players I would say that you should just keep practicing, and that nothing will come over night, classic I know, but it is true, especially in Brawl Stars, keep focusing on your game and don’t get down if you lose. Re-watch the match you lost, find mistakes and try to focus on them so you won’t make the same mistake twice. For followers I hope you will enjoy the streams and support us in making our game a real esports, and for the organisation all the best whishes since I hope we will get to know each other a bit better as I’m new to all this.

Thank you for the kind words Inder. We are lucky to have you as a part of the staff this year and we will definitely have time to get to know each other during the season. Brawl Stars is continuing this week, so don’t forget to tune in at our Twitch channel and watch the best regional squads battle it out on their way to the playoffs.
