Zero Tenacity claims the CS:GO trophy!

Zero Tenacity managed to outplay the KTRL to become the champion of the tenth season of the A1 Adria League! The grand finals were played in Zagreb at Reboot Games Weekend in front of a live audience after a two-year pause due to the pandemic. Fans and viewers online got finals worthy of a tenth jubilee.

Strong performance on LAN secures the trophy for Zero Tenacity

The amazing best-of-five series started off on Nuke. The KTRL had a strong start on the T side and managed to close the half with an 8-7 loss, which is amazing for an attacking side on Nuke. They continued to play well on the CT side almost running away with the first map but Z10 had something to say about that. Miloš “dEE” Marčeta and co. got to the 14 rounds and then it was all Z10 until the end.

Z10 almost pulled another amazing comeback on Mirage after KTRL’s 11-4 lead on the half. This time the KTRL got to 15-5 result during their CT side but stopped again. It looked like they were going to lose another huge lead but this time they successfully closed the map with 16-13.

Inferno was another close encounter in which Miloš “dEE” Marčeta showed phenomenal individual performance but unfortunately for him and his team, it wasn’t enough. It was the first time in the series that Z10 had the lead after the first half. The 9-6 lead on the CT side was enough for them to close it out 16-12. It seemed like that was the breaking point in the series.

Dust 2 was the last map played and Z10 won by a landslide. It was like KTRL just disappeared from the server. The 11-4 on the T side was more than enough for Z10 to win the map and the grand finals in the next six rounds of the second half. Adin “brutomonster” Husić was a real monster on Dust2 finishing the map with a 2.08 HLTV rating, which helped him reach the best overall individual rating in the series as well.

Zero Tenacity A1AL S10 KTRL

Both teams know each other really well. Miloš “dEE” Marčeta and Filip “aVN” Belojica have won the A1 Adria League in seasons 4, 5, and 6, playing together. This time one had to be on the losing side and it ended up being dEE. For sure, he was more than happy that aVN won the finals if he couldn’t. With the CS:GO finals of the A1 Adria League Season 10 we are officially concluding this season. Well, not just yet. The competition is over for this year but we’ll take a good look back before we start preparing for the next one.

Here’s what awaits you at Reboot Gaming Weekend!

The weekend ahead brings the long-awaited gaming festival – Reboot Gaming Weekend powered by A1 and the spectacular finale of the jubilee 10th season of the A1 Adria League.

A1AL season 10 finale

Fun powered by A1

The introductory warm-up in the morning hours of both days of the grand final will be left to Algebra’s student competition in CS:GO. Visitors will be able to try out some of the most famous domestic titles from the workshop of members of the Clusters Croatian Video Game Producers. In addition, domestic game developers will present their projects as part of the Indie zone. Part of the startups from the business incubator PISMO powered by A1 from Novska are also coming.

For entertainment, numerous gaming zones will be available where you can play the latest hit titles. The Zagreb Fair will also be the destination of the traveling A1 Gaming Hub, which brings Fortnite, Brawl Stars, and FIFA gaming to computers, PlayStation, and mobile devices.

But that’s not all! One thousand of the luckiest visitors will return home with a digital gamer’s souvenir – A1 Adria League NFTs, which A1 Hrvatska, as the first telecom on the Croatian market, created in cooperation with the regional Hub of the NEAR blockchain through the h00kd platform. Fans will thus have the opportunity to participate in various activations within the A1 chill zone in order to win their gamer memorabilia.

Second round of group stage brought luck to the favorites

Another week has gone by. The group stage in FIFA23, Brawl Stars, and CS:GO is ongoing. We are over with half of the competition in this stage of the tenth A1 Adria League season. The first week we saw some exciting matches in all the games. iNation and Blink dominated the CS:GO group stage, Salada failed in Brawl Stars and three out of four Bosnian players took their wins in the FIFA competition. The second week wasn’t any less exciting.

iNation secured the playoff; Psihocastic eliminated

Fans had the opportunity to once again watch CS:GO competition two days in one week. On last Wednesday we saw one qualification match and one regular one where teams were 1:1 in the overall score. The qualification match was played between iNation and Blink since they had two wins each, and were on the verge of making it further in the competition. That match was won by iNation, namely, Blink didn’t show up because of another tournament even though they were given one hour extra to attend.

In the other match that was played that day it was KTRL who came out victorious and showed a very dominant performance. They defeated GamePub and got one step closer to the playoff stage.

On Sunday, which is the second play day in last week’s CS:GO competition, we saw one team leave us. It was Psihocastic and Velez Mostar fighting for staying in the league. Velez Mostar took down their opponent with a 2:0 win and is still in contention. On the other side, the competition ends here for team Psihocastic.

In the match between Zero Tenacity and ILLYRIANS who both had a 1:1 score, Z10 came out victorious and is now in a good situation to make playoffs.

OMERT4 and GreekGod at the top; Salada redeemed

In the second round of the SWISS group stage in the Brawl Stars competition the favorites justified their role and got their well-deserved victories. OMERT4 is continuing with their amazing performance from the qualifiers and is now sitting at 2:0, alongside team GreekGod who is one of the strongest teams this season as well. These two teams will battle against each other this Thursday for the first spot in the playoffs. The wins that brought them to this position were achieved against La Aquilla for OMERT4 and for GreekGod it was a marathon match against Jazavci that went to all five maps.

Team Rolex, who won one of the A1AL qualifiers, also got their first victory in the group stage. They defeated Extreme Masters and now have an overall score of 1:1. Salada de Frutas, last season’s champions also got their win and started the climb to the top. They have a long way to go, but this is a good start for Salada and it shows they are not yet forsaken. They were fast and furious in their match against La Remontada which ended with a 3:0 win.

Novo and Brstimir are undefeated

Once again the favorites in the FIFA23 competition are back on top. This isn’t a surprise seeing how both Novo and Brstimir are dominating A1AL for seasons now. It was always Novo who secured the titles, but Brstimir is right there with him if we look at his performance. Both of these guys are currently sitting at the top of the leaderboard with a 2:0 score still waiting to be defeated. That will happen for one of them very soon, seeing that in the next round of the group stage which begins tonight they will fight against each other. So either Novo or Brstimir will take the first spot in the playoff stage.

In the other two matches of the second round in the FIFA23 group stage, Sardinho213 and Gruby got their wins. Last week turned out to be bad for Bosnian players. Out of four, only one was successful.  Also, Bruno and esad1memic are not in a good spot right now. They are on the verge of being eliminated seeing as they don’t have a single win. Let’s see how they perform tonight!

Brawl Stars, FIFA23 and CS:GO started their race to the title!

Last week we had a lot of exciting match-ups in all our games. With the start of the group stage, things are starting to heat up. Brawl Stars, FIFA23 and CS:GO started their race to the title in the first round of the SWISS group stage in the tenth season of the A1 Adria League. Here is a recap of the week.

Aloha and Blink dominant

The tenth CS:GO season in the A1 Adria League started explosively. We had two match days, and in the end, the two teams who took both wins and were the most successful are Aloha and Blink. Blink is a well-known team in the region, and in Europe as well. This win was expected from both teams, seeing that they were the invited ones. While the qualified ones had to fight their way up here. Blink took their two wins against ILLYRIANS and KTRL. While the match against KTRL was an easy one for the Albanian team, they had a tougher task versus ILLYRIANS but the final result was 16:13 in favor of Blink.

On the other side, Aloha who also has a 2:0 score after two play days was completely dominant in both CS:GO matches. They defeated Zero Tenacity as well as Psihocastic. Against Z10 Aloha only allowed their opponents 2 rounds, while in the game against Psihocastic the result was 16:3. Psihocastic and Velez Mostar were the teams with no wins so far and they are sitting at the bottom of the standings, while the rest have one win and one defeat.

Bosnian players successful in FIFA23

The new FIFA wasn’t a big problem for the players. The start of the group stage brought us FIFA23, instead of FIFA22 in which the players competed during the qualifications. The first match that opened the group stage in this competition was Novo versus Bruno. The four-time champion didn’t have a lot of trouble against the Croatian representative. It was a clear win for Novo with a result of 2:0. The other three matches all had a 2:1 score, and the players that came out victorious were Encika and Parla, also Bosnian players, and Brstimir as the Serbian FIFA virtuoso. In the end, favorites justified their role.

Salada de Frutas in questionable form this season

The A1AL Brawlers debuted this season in the group stage. We have seen many interesting matches, one almost reverse sweep, and a disappointing performance by the champions.

The most successful teams in the first round of the group stage were OMERT4, who was the first seed, and GreekGod. Both of these teams won their games with a dominant 3:o score. OMERT4 took down La Remontada while team GreekGod was victorious against Rolex, a team that won one of the Qualifiers Cups.

On the other hand, the most interesting match in the first round was played by Jazavci and Extreme Masters. Everything looked like a clean win for the former team seeing as they started the duel with 2 wins. But when Extreme Masters realized it was Bo5, they put it in second gear and almost reverse-swept their opponents. Jazavci however didn’t allow that, winning the last match and scoring in Brawl Ball avoiding overtime.

The biggest surprise was Salada de Frutas. The current Brawl Stars champions in the A1 Adria League are showing bad form since the beginning of the season. They didn’t manage to win a single qualifier, they were seeded fourth and now DzonDzon and his team lost the first game. Salada was against team La Aquilla who defeated them with a 3:1 score.

Zero Tenacity and ILLYRIANS are back in CS:GO group stage

The third CS:GO qualifier finished on Sunday, and we have completed the group stage of the A1 Adria League in this competition with 8 teams. Zero Tenacity and ILLYRIANS are the last two teams who entered the next stage of the competition.

Last spots secured

The tenth A1 Adria League season in the CS:GO competition is ready to start. The last two, out of eight teams secured their spot in the group stage. KATAI, and Velez Mostar made it to the group stage in the first qualifier, while in the second one we saw KTRL and Psihocastic come out victorious. The third and last one as we saw on Sunday went into the hands of two familiar teams in A1AL. Both Zero Tenacity and ILLYRIANS were competing in the last season. Teams led by nemanha and connex511 made it through with an outstanding performance.

The battle was as fierce as ever. The competition was tough, and there were only two spots left. We saw a couple of surprises as well. Teams such as Cyber Wolves didn’t manage to qualify, even though they were really close to achieving their goal. A well-known name in the CS:GO community XTEAM, also didn’t make it, which is the biggest surprise of the season. Gejmzilla and his team have already shown what a great team they are, in regional and in European competitions as well.

In the semifinals, Zero Tenacity eliminated Cyber Wolves and secured their spot. And in the other semifinals, it was ILLYRIANS who demolished their opponent, team Premkaenjoyers with a 2:0 win.

Besides the 6 qualified teams, two more invited ones will join the competition. Who the invited teams are will be revealed soon enough. So make sure to follow us on social media for more information. The group stage starts on October 5th.

KTRL and Psihocastic won the second CS:GO qualifier

After Velez Mostar and KATAI secured the group stage of the A1 Adria League in CS:GO competition last week, two more teams joined last night. After an interesting night of CS:GO matches KTRL and Psihocastic also made it to the group stage by winning the second qualifier.

Two more spots left

The beginning of the tenth A1 Adria League season in CS:GO is getting closer. We already have four teams who will compete in the league, as well as the two invited teams, who will join the rest. So far teams that made it are Velez Mostar, KATAI, KTRL, and Psihocastic.

Many teams registered for the second CS:GO qualifier, but in the end, KTRL and Psihocastic made it to the top. And I must say it was a well-deserved victory for these two teams. Seeing as the competition is fierce yet again, the winners of this qualifier didn’t have an easy task. I already mentioned in the last article that KTRL on paper looks really dangerous and that we should expect great things from them. Well, it didn’t take them long to prove they are a menace to their opponents, as they already secured the group stage of A1AL. The Romanian organization in its core has great players such as sarenii, dEE and Katalic, who are all well-known names in the region.

On the other hand, Psihocastic also showed an outstanding performance last night. The roster made out of Salted, andr1x, brky, rbfurious, and SkippeR showed their worth by defeating a great team like Cyber Wolves. They defeated the mentioned team in the semifinals with a 2:0 score and took their spot in the group stage.

Only one more CS:GO qualifier is left, and only two more spots in the group stage. If you want to enter the league and compete with the region’s best, sign up NOW!

KATAI and Velez Mostar secured group stage in A1AL

The CS:GO competition officially started yesterday. A little less than 40 teams registered for this qualifier, and we have seen some interesting matches. The teams that were successful and already secured their spot in the group stage in the tenth A1 Adria League season are KATAI and Velez Mostar.

Two more chances remain

Not much has changed this season in the CS:GO competition. Unlike Brawl Stars and FIFA, CS:GO has the overall three qualifier cups. Two teams from each qualifier advance to the next stage of the competition. This week the two teams that came out victorious are KATAI and Velez Mostar. They showed the best performance and can now be at peace until the start of the league.

We have seen some familiar names yesterday during the qualifier such as Cyber Wolves, Jake Bube, KTRL, and many others. Cyber Wolves with their newly signed CS:GO roster managed to reach the 4th round or quarterfinals, before being eliminated by none other than KATAI. Jake Bube is a well-known team that’s being led by Mladen Jurić from Relog Media. This squad is very active lately, and we have had the opportunity to follow them in many tournaments.

KTRL is a Romanian organization that has great potential to make it to the top. Seeing as they acquired many talented players from the region such as Nemanja “sarenii” Šarenac. Sarenii is a familiar name in the region, he played for 4glory with whom he won many tournaments including Esport Adria Prvenstvo and Kuvo OneTap in 2021. An ex Zero Tenacity player Dejan “Katalić” Koprivica is also a member of KTRL, as well as Miloš “dEE” Marčeta. With this roster, we can expect a lot from KTRL.

Since the first qualifier is over, there are only two more chances to enter the league. Who will join KATAI and Velez Mostar we will see in our remaining two qualifiers. The second one is scheduled for next Sunday, September 18th, so don’t waste any time, and sign up HERE!

CS:GO qualifiers are starting on Sunday!

The first of three CS:GO qualifiers for the tenth season of the A1 Adria League will be played on Sunday 11th of September. Start earning points in time so you don’t miss your chance to advance to the group stage.

In Season 10 we will have three open qualifiers through which you are able to earn points. The best teams from the qualifiers will advance to the SWISS group stage. The season will end with the playoffs. The format is the same as it was in Season 9 so there should be no surprises.
