Clash of Leagues finals in Salzburg
The Clash of Leagues finals at LEVEL UP – The Gaming Festival in Salzburg saw the winners of A1 Adria League, Swisscom Hero League, and A1 eSports League battle it out for the trophy. The format was three teams round-robin for a total prize pool of 3000€.
The draw went in the way of opponents which meant Salada de Frutas had to play the first two opening matches. In their first match against Aurora Esports, the winners of the Austrian A1 eSports League they showcased some resistance and played well but didn’t manage to close it out. In the end, they lost 3-0, altho the result doesn’t tell the full story of how that match-up played out.
Lavvek and co. stayed on stage for their second match. The Swisscom Hero League’s winners mYinsanity stepped on stage. In the first map, Salada de Frutas had everything they needed to take the win but in the end, mYinsanity managed to clutch it out. Salada de Frutas then showed great mental fortitude and won the remaining of maps and games. Once Aurora Esports defeated mYinsanity, Salada de Frutas secured second place.
- Aurora Esports (1600€)
- Salada de Frutas (800€)
- mYinsanity (600€)
Congratulations to Salada de Frutas for their amazing result and sportsmanship. Another important thing to note is that Clash of Leagues will be back this year but with a different game, so stay tuned!
