CS:GO

CS:GO is the oldest game in our tournament, it has been the part of A1 Adria League since its inception. CS:GO is here to stay, and the player has a new opportunity to prove their skill and battle the best teams in the region. The winner will receive a flattering title of Adriatic CS:GO champion, as well as the 2.500€ prize.

This year’s format for CS:GO didn’t go through many changes. There are three open qualifiers, from which a total of 6 teams go into the next stage. Qualified teams will be joined by the 2 invited teams, the best ones from last season. So the group stage is contained with 8 teams. The best four teams from the SWISS group stage will advance to the open finals, where they will fight for the title. Finals are going to be single elimination brackets, so there is no place for mistakes.

Get ready for the new season of A1 Adria League!

The ninth season lies at the doorsteps, and qualifications for our own A1 Adria League are starting soon. Don’t wait any longer and sign up so you can start competing for the title of being the best in the region. The new season of the most prestigious tournament in our region is bringing something new each year. This year is no exception.

We are adding more games this year, alongside the standard ones, Brawl Stars, CS:GO, and FIFA 22. League of Legends and Clash Royale will also be a part of the ninth season of A1 Adria League, only with a slightly different format. And that’s not all. The best regional players will have an opportunity to compete at two new games, which will for now remain a secret.

The ninth season brings seven games

The previous year was a successful one for A1 Adria League. Fans have had the chance to follow the progress of regional players in different games, and enjoy the league. The fact that A1AL had almost 29.000 watched hours last year, and a whopping number of 463.000 views on YouTube shows that regional esports is growing every day.

For this year and two upcoming seasons, we have made a few changes. Instead of four games, as was mentioned earlier, the ninth season will have seven! The format will remain almost the same for Brawl Stars, CS:GO and FIFA 22 while in the other four games players will have a different experience. League of Legends, Clash Royale, and two mystery games will be held on the weekends with open qualifiers and the finals event.

A1 Adria League seven games

Popular CS:GO is yet again back. Last year we have seen PORTUGAL win the trophy, beating teams such as iNation and 4Glory, who are at the moment in great form proving this year’s competition won’t be any easier than last year’s. Don’t miss the chance to fight with the best teams in the region!

Last year’s Brawl Star champions were team Flow alongside Lavvek who proved that in the region this mobile game is growing more and more with each successful season. Familiar names in this game, which we have seen last year are Winx Club, Omert4, Lightning Strike, and many others.

FIFA 21 was one of the most interesting games to follow last year. Three-time back-to-back champion Amke has shown once again he is not letting go of the throne that easily. Despite the great effort of esad1memic and brstimir, Amke remained the king of FIFA. However, as the season is on its way, new opportunities to dethrone Amke are opening up, as well the opportunities for the three-time champion to defend his title.

The only MOBA in our A1 Adria League League of Legends waits for the new champion. Last year the trophy fell into the hands of Metamoon who didn’t have an easy job. They defeated Harmony and 49% winrate in order to lift the trophy. Even though Harmony was a better team in the semifinals, Metamoon got their revenge in the finals when they bested their opponents.

How does gaming on smartphones move the boundaries of esports

Esports was at the beginning limited only to personal computers. With the development of technology, it became possible to compete on consoles, and later on smartphones too. It is exactly the smartphones that in recent years have been moving the boundaries of esports.

Regardless of which research you take into account, gaming on smartphones and tablets, popularly called mobile gaming, is a segment that should grow the fastest. Faster than gaming on personal computers and gaming consoles. Everyone who owns a smartphone is a potential “gamer”. A lot of people today play on their phones and unintentionally make the gamer’s statistics. They play games while traveling or while taking a break from daily activities. Among so many players there are those who compete in mobile games. 

This type of gamer exists in our region too and A1 Adria League is showing that for seasons including at least one mobile game in its tournament. Earlier it was the popular game Clash Royale, and in the eighth season, which was held last year, all the lights of mobile gaming were on Brawl Stars

Last summer it was the best domestic Brawl Stars players such as Lavvek, Adry, Andrey, and DzonDzon who represented the region in the Clash of Leagues tournament in Salzburg, in which the best players from five Central European Leagues and regional A1 Adria League participate. 

clash of leagues mobile esports

Discussions about whether esports on mobile devices are real esports are long over. Smartphones and tablets are today technically so developed that they can support more demanding games too. Big developers and video game publishers have in mind the potential that mobile gaming has. Riot Games studio which made the ultra-popular League of Legends and VALORANT, also published a mobile version of the most popular MOBA game: League of Legends: Wild Rift. Call of Duty mobile has been available for a while now for everyone who prefers shooting on mobile platforms. 

How can mobile esports help women enter esports?

With the growth of esports, the age boundaries of entering the world of competitive gaming are being moved. Regardless of the game, a lot of them are adapted to the youngest players, who very intuitively, using touchscreen controls can experience competitive gaming. 20 or more years ago to achieve this you needed to have some technical knowledge as well as a very expensive, and sometimes, unavailable device. 

Of course, some of them will in the future play on gaming consoles and personal computers, but will at that point already have experienced something that wasn’t available to the Millenials, not to mention older generations. Of course, mobile esports isn’t only meant for younger players.

Female players still make up a very small percentage of active participants in esports. The most popular tournament for girls is the Women Star League Invitational in-game Mobile Legends: Bang Bang if we look at data on an active number of audience and the number of watched hours.

One of the ways in which we could include more females in the world of esports is exactly mobile esports. You wouldn’t need any special equipment for it, and the community isn’t as defined and exclusive as those when gaming on PCs or consoles. 

Woman Star League

However, for mobile esports or any kind of mobile gaming, it’s important to have a smartphone. That’s how the best regional Brawl Stars players in the grand finale of Clash of Leagues in LEVEL Up Arena in Salzburg competed on Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G devices which at least gave them an even chance with the best players of other countries. 

When we talk about MOBA or similar games, which are more demanding to both players and devices, it’s important to have a fast response speed so you can run the game without any problems. This was exactly what Xiaomi provided to our guys. What kind of device is needed for the serious competition will depend on the game, and of course on the player. Even the smallest advantage in performance in crucial moments can be decisive.

Mobile gaming and mobile esports are already a part of the gaming industry or better esports industry. It will surely grow in the future, as we are even now raising new generations of gamers, professional or not. 

Lavvek & Flow are the new regional Brawl Stars champions!

After a flawless SWISS stage, the Salada de Frutas roster playing under Flow secured their well-deserved A1 Adria League Brawl Stars title.

Our first Reboot Online Games Week day was a BLAST. Both the segments during the day and the Brawl Stars playoffs provided our followers with plenty of entertainment and we have now crowned our Season 8 Brawl Stars champions. The four most successful teams of the regular season advanced to the double-elimination bracket we watched today. Flow (formerly known as Salada de Frutas) were the clear favorites heading into today’s matches, and they didn’t fail to disappoint. Flow and Winx Club started out the bracket with clean sweeps versus Lightning Strike and Omert4, respectively.

In the following elimination match, Omert4 succeeded in throwing Lightning Strike out of the tournament. Meanwhile, the biggest derby of the season saw Winx fall short to Flow in a nail-biting upper-bracket final (2-3). While Winx lost the upper final, they managed to climb back at the expense of Omerta and challenge Flow again. If the previous match was a nail-biter, we can’t find enough words to describe the grand final. With a lead of 2-0 against the clear favorites, only a single win separated Winx from the champion’s title. However, Lavvek finally did it! A massive comeback happened in the remainder of the game and on Brawl Ball, Flow claimed what was theirs since the beginning – the A1 Adria League title.

Brawl Stars Playoffs

The final Brawl Stars standings for the season:

1. Flow – €900
2. Winx Club – €600
3. Omert4 – €300
4. Lightning Strike – €200

A1 Adria League playoffs to be a part of Reboot Online Games Week!

The second A1 Adria League season of 2021 is a week away from the final matches that will decide our new champions. Here is a short recap of the season so far.

Three SWISS stages completed; LoL ready for its final matches

Over the course of the past months, A1 Adria League was once again the battleground of four titles: CS:GO, League of Legends, Brawl Stars and FIFA. A huge number of players from every single country in the region signed up to play and compete in their game of choice. A qualifying stage was followed by a SWISS group in three of the four games, excluding League of Legends. Last week those SWISS group concluded, and we now know all of the playoffs participants.

Brawl Stars was Salada de Frutas’ playground during the entirety of the SWISS stage. In only three rounds, they managed to continue the winning streak the team had in the qualifiers and advance to the playoffs with ease. Right after them, three Brawl Stars squads followed them in the playoffs. Winx Club and Omert4 did so with a 3-1 record, while Lightning Strike qualified in the last round. Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac, Esad “esad1memic” Memić, Haris “edenn95” Lukomirak and Tarik “amke2001” Novo were the fastest to adapt to the new FIFA edition and clinch the top 4 spots in the eight season of FIFA.

Moving to CS:GO, the team that debuted in the league, iNation, was also the team that had a perfect run. We will watch three teams that were a part of the final stage in the previous season as well. Namely, the two Macedonian teams, PORTUGAL and BLUEJAYS,  and 4glory are going to make an appearance in our upcoming single-elimination bracket. Finally, League of Legends is nearing the end of the playoffs bracket. Metamoon, Harmony and 49%winrate are left to play out the remainder of the season.

S8 Playoffs

We are also more than happy to announce the return of Reboot Online Games Week. Three studios, over 150 hours of content, and plenty of rewards for everyone following the event. And yes, the third ROGW edition will also be completely free. Whether you are here to watch shows and segments about gaming, game development, or you prefer esports content, Reboot Online Games Week has you covered. We will once again feature a multitude of shows for everyone’s taste.

Keep following our Social Media to learn more about the individual segments and get ready to participate in one of the biggest regional gaming events.

Lightning Strike advance to the Brawl Stars playoffs over Mayoi!

In the very last Brawl Stars SWISS of this A1 Adria League season, Lightning Strike clinched the final playoffs spot.

The final matchup was played out to decide which team would join Salada de Frutas, Omert4, and Winx Club in this season’s double-elimination playoffs bracket. The two teams that faced each other were Mayoi and Lightning Strike. As fitting for such an important match, both teams showed up and gave it their all today. Both Lightning Strike and Mayoi went back and forth in the first four modes and it all came down to the final mode, Factory Rush. There, Lightning Strike excelled and managed to eliminate Mayoi.

A great SWISS season is now behind us. Some teams impressed, some a bit less so. In the end, the four very best will be a part of this season’s playoffs. These are the final Brawl Stars standings after the conclusion of the SWISS stage:

The situation in FIFA is exactly the same. Esad “esad1memic” Memić and Haris “edenn95” Lukomirak joined Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac on the top of the leaderboard. The two players that will clash spears in the final rounds will be Harun “Hara” Parla, and last season’s winner, Tarik “amke2001” Novo. What do you think, which player will become the fourth semifinalist of this A1 Adria League season?

As League of Legends’ season doesn’t feature a SWISS format, there won’t be a fifth round to finish. Instead, we will be continuing our double-elimination bracket with six teams remaining. Last week, Banished Esports and Lupus Esports left the tournament. These are the matches for our upcoming playday:

Metamoon vs. Harmony
Clouded Leopards vs. Fantastic Esports

CS:GO

After a great last weekend for the region, where three regional teams placed in the top 4 positions of CEE Champions, our last two teams are ready to conclude the SWISS stage. 4glory and Marten Gaming will play the deciding BO3. The winner will qualify to the final stage along with iNation, PORTUGAL and BLUEJAYS, while the loser will join JESTE, SKUAK and Zero Tenacity in the eliminated half of the leaderboard.
