The first week of qualifiers has come to an end!

With CS:GO and FIFA finishing during the weekend, three of the four titles reached the end of the first set of qualifiers for the upcoming A1 Adria League season.

Brawl Stars

Over 80 teams signed up for the first Brawl Stars qualifiers. We saw familiar names in the Round of 16 with the Good Game Gold and Red teams securing a spot in the quarterfinals, while ULC eSports couldn’t outplay Never Surrender. FA Deadly were the better team in their match versus YouLose and Blue Whales managed to beat Old School.

Code Lyoko and FA Deadly couldn’t get past GG Gold and O9 Gang, respectively. ToDe05 and GG Red breezed past Blue Whales and MysteryWarriors secured the last spot in the semifinals. After two intense matches in the semis, both of Good Game’s teams advanced to the finals. A 3-1 victory for the Serbian side earned GG Red their first 100 points in the road to the playoffs.

Clash Royale’s only qualifier unfortunately got delayed because of problems inside the game. The qualifier will continue next Friday on the FACEIT platform.

FIFA

We had the chance to see familiar names in the first FIFA qualifier. Last season’s champion, esad1memic, convincingly secured his spot in the finals. JasikFifa and Harun met each other in the Round of 16 with the latter proceeding to the quarters. An interesting matchup happened between brstimir and amke2001 where the Serbian player managed to beat amke and enter the semifinal match versus Harun.

Even after a convincing win in his match against Aleksandar Djuric, Persunipzs wasn’t able to match up to esad1memic and ended the first qualifier in the fourth place. Harun had to play the third-place decider after a loss to brstimir who even beat the reigning champion, esad1memic, and won the first FIFA qualifier.

CS:GO

The first pair of open CS:GO qualifiers took place during the weekend. The best eight teams from this pair of qualifiers advanced to the closed qualifier that will take place during the next weekend. Three out of the eight participating teams will secure a spot in the sixth season of A1 Adria League, and the cycle will repeat for the next pair of qualifiers.

On Saturday we saw Karlo “KukaOG” Kukovec and peek me reach new heights and qualify for the closed qualifier. QSKE Gaming and Shock Bomb are now a step closer to the League after dominant victories against FREE KILL and Lemonsqueazy and the last team that secured a spot in the upcoming qualifier is Jan “jkXy” Konečnik’s Krsko squad.

After missing out on the first qualifier, Kristijan “kiLLeRa” Kukovski and GODZ1337 had no problems advancing to the closed qualifier. The Kosovar MiKS squad featuring names like vAloN and HYPER1 along with BUDI2 also entered the race for the three spots in the League. FREE KILL were the last team to end this qualifier victorious as they bested Wait Wait Wait on Inferno and Dust2 without any difficulties.

Don’t miss the only Clash Royale qualifier!

Yesterday, we marked the beginning of the new A1 Adria League season with the first of thirteen Brawl Stars qualifiers. Today, we are turning to our other mobile title, Clash Royale.

Clash Royale has been with us since the very beginnings of the A1 Adria League. Each and every season, the players show us just how talented this region is when it comes to Clash Royale and we are extremely happy that we are able to give the players a stepping stone in their careers with our League.

Crusher Esports stunned us in the last season’s playoffs. With teams like Emperiial that had a phenomenal Group Stage and talented squads like Totem Esports, Crusher really turned a lot of heads when they dominated Emperiial 3-0 in the Grand Finals of the League. 

Just like in the last season, five teams and one qualified side will face each other in a round-robin Group Stage. This time, it is actually a double round-robin format, so the team will have the chance to play against each other twice in their roads to the playoffs. The modes remain the same, which means that we will once again see high quality 1v1, 2v2 and KOTH matches every playday.

You still have time to sign up for the only Clash Royale qualifier by clicking here. The qualifier will be held on the FACEIT platform, and we encourage the players to read through the Clash Royale rules to ensure a smooth qualifier that will see the absolute best team win.

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.

WHILE WE ARE WAITING for the next season to start, be sure to tune in and watch the final edition of the A1 Gaming Weekend. There will be plenty of PES action during the upcoming weekend, so make sure to watch our stream!

Due to the current world pandemic, there is a possibility of the season six playoffs being played online. We are closely following the situation and the new measures in our region in order to ensure the safety of our staff and players. We are currently proceeding with the preparations as usual, but if anything changes, you will be informed on time. GLHF! 

Crusher Esports crush the competition in the Clash Royale playoffs!

With Alpha Elite winning the Brawl Stars League, it was time to turn to our other mobile title, Clash Royale, and end yet another, fifth, season with an incredible playoffs night.

Our commentator, PvtMole, had the chance to watch the Crusher Esports vs LA Gaming game first. LA Gaming started the game strong with a 2-0 victory in the first 1v1 set. Crusher struck back and won both the 2v2 and KOTH modes, while Tocilovac and LA Gaming once again prevailed in the second 1v1 mode. In the end, ConeKorleone wasn’t able to outplay Bruno Blaze and LA Gaming were eliminated from the tournament.

Crusher went on and faced Totem Esports in the second match of the Gauntlet format playoffs. The first 1v1 set ended in favor of Crusher, while Totem bounced back during the 2v2 and KOTH sets. As Beast was playing the No Tilt league in the time of his match against Totem, the team had to surrender the last set and give the win to Crusher.

Crushter couldn’t be stopped in the finals. After two hard-fought victories, they still managed to keep their cool, stay focused and beat Emperiial-Flayn in the Grand Finals. After an amazing 4-1 Group Stage, Emperiial lost the finals without winning a single set. It was amazing to see Crusher win three out of the three series they played and win the fifth season of Clash Royale.

Are you ready for the Clash Royale playoffs?

With the group stage being done, it’s time to see which teams will compete in the playoffs for a chance to win awesome awards and be crowned champions of the fifth A1 Adria League Clash Royale season.

A1 Adria League S5 - Clash Royale Standings 6

The playoffs will be played in The Gauntlet format. The fourth team from the Group Stage will face the third and the winner of that match will play against the runner-up from the Group Stage. Finally, the better team from that match will be able to play versus the first-placed team in the groups, Emperiial.

Every player may participate in two major sets (2v2 and 1v1) and 1 minor set (KOTH). The playoffs players are allowed to change a player in their roster, but the new player mustn’t have played this Group Stage of the league – thus excluding Underdogs and ERN Mobile’s players.

Make sure to tune in tonight at 8 pm and see the best that the regional Clash Royale scene has to offer. See you at the Arena!

LA Gaming upset Emperiial, Totem best ERN Mobile in the fifth round!

One more Clash Royale group round is behind us, and this time we finally saw Emperiial fall, while Underdogs managed to lose yet another game without winning a single set.

Emperiial faced the outsiders, Underdogs, in their first match of the fifth round. As everyone expected, Underdogs had no chance and lost the match without winning a single game or set. With this loss, Underdogs have no chance of finishing fifth and will finish this season of A1 Adria League at dead-last, as predicted by most of the regional Clash Royale scene.

The round continued with a duel between ERN Mobile and Totem Esports. We saw another 2-0 set victory with Totem Esports having a one-sided win in the 2v2 mode, and barely managing to squeeze past ERN in the KOTH mode. ERN are currently sitting at fifth while Totem are closely behind Emperiial.

We went all the way in the last game between Emperiial and LA Gaming. Emperiial started the match with a clean victory in the 2v2 games. LA Gaming struck back in the second mode and they became the first team to beat Emperiial after an intense win in the final 1v1 mode. Tocilovac outplayed Super and brought the victory to LA Gaming.

Emperiial remain undefeated after the fourth Clash Royale round!

Before the start of the fifth Clash Royale round, let’s take a quick look at last week’s results and performances from all the teams.

This playday was a bit shorter than the previous ones and only two matches were played. We had the chance to see Totem Esports take on Crusher Esports in the first game of the night. The 2v2 games were one-sided in favor of Totem Esports who managed to get a set without any problems. The guys from Crusher won one game in the KOTH set, but Totem quickly closed out the set and the whole game with a clean 2-0 victory.

Emperiial who are currently leading the charts in Clash Royale faced ERN Mobile in the fourth round of Clash Royale. After Emperiial beat ERN in the 2v2 set, they were nearly able to win KOTH as well, but ERN denied their comeback in the last game of the KOTH set. In the end, Destroyer was ironically destroyed by Super who took the victory point for his team.

In the next round that is starting tonight, we will see Emperiial-Flayn play against Underdogs and LA Gaming, and ERN Mobile will face Totem Esports between the aforementioned two matches.

Emperiial take the lead in the third Clash Royale round!

The third round of Clash Royale continued during the last week with most of the favourites securing more points on the leaderboard.

In the first match of the day we saw LA Gaming face the outsiders, Underdogs. Andreii’s Underdogs actually managed to win one match in the 2v2 game, but the set went to LA Gaming. After the 2v2 games, LA Gaming didn’t have much trouble versus Underdogs. They successfully secured the KOTH set and won the whole match.

Things were much more interesting in the duel between Emperiial and Totem Esports. Emperiial had a dominant start and won the 2v2 set with ease. Totem took the KOTH set after being down 1-2 at one point but even that wasn’t enough for them to win the whole match and the team lost the final 1v1 set.

LA Gaming played once again in the last match of the day. Their opponents, Crusher Esports easily bested LA Gaming when talking about 2v2, but LA Gaming managed to sweep KOTH and bring the game to the third and last set. After a tough 1v1 set, Bruno Blaze and Crusher Esports came out victorious and secured the second spot on the Clash Royale leaderboard.

Twitter discusses: Can Underdogs cause an upset?

While other games are still in the qualifying process, Clash Royale started it’s Group Stage phase last week. We saw dominant performances from the ERN Mobile players and Emperiaial-Flayn and Totem managed to secure their first victories in the fifth edition of A1 Adria League.

Emperiial eSports and Crusher Esports opened the first playday of the A1 Adria League Clash Royale season. When talking about the 2v2 games, Emperiial managed to take a set with a 2-1 win, while in KOTH they won three out of the four matches played, ending the match with a 2-0 scoreline. Next up, we had a chance to see eSport Rhein-Neckar Mobile sweep Underdogs with a clean 2-0 victory. Totem Esports got the win against ConeKorleone and LA Gaming with a 2-1 win in 2v2 and a close 2-3 victory in the KOTH. In the second round of the Group Stage, we saw Crushers Esports destroy Underdogs with the latter not winning a single game. LA Gaming managed to slip past ERN Mobile after an intense game that went all the way to the last game.

A1 Adria League S5 Clash Royale Standings

At the end of the first round, some of the players took it on Twitter to discuss the quality of the newly qualified team – Underdogs. The question is, can Underdogs upset one of the better teams and take a set or even a match in this season of A1 Adria League?

After a comment on destroyer’s Twitter account indirectly offended Underdogs, ERN’s player Vucko69 jumped in to defend Underdogs. Vucko69 stated that there is a chance that Underdogs can upset one of the better teams and take some points during the season. tomo is master continued the conversation saying that there is no way that Underdogs will be able to match up at all to the other teams in the Group Stage judging by experience and the individual skill of the other players.

Vucko used an example from his earlier career when he was the underdog and the QLASH players didn’t believe he had any chances against better players at the time. He mentioned the 2v2 mode saying that its much more about practice than individual skill and that teams can easily beat better players with good preparation. That is certainly one of the things that makes Clash Royale such a great game. It shows players that in the modes like 2v2, there are situations where team play can win games over raw skill, and Underdogs definitely have a chance to do some damage during the season.

Will the Underdogs be able to put up a fight against the more known names or will actually experience reign supreme? The action continues today!
