This week in A1AL: Second round is drawing to a close!

Two FIFA and Brawl Stars and three CS:GO matches remain until the end of the second SWISS round. The teams are slowly gaining the lead in the group stage and are fighting for their spot in the playoffs.

Brawl Stars

As always, the opening game for our A1 Adria League week is Brawl Stars. First up is the duel between Lil Surprise and Mayoi – a match that will decide who joins Noble Elite BLK in the 2-0 pool. Mayoi managed to get here with a win against Omerta, while Lil Surprise beat a weakened 09 Gang in the first round.

When the first duel concludes, Noble Elite Red and QSKE will enter the arena to fight for their first win. As QSKE Gaming forfeited their last match, this will be the first time we are seeing them in this season of the A1 Adria League. Noble Elite Red are still recovering from their defeat versus Tora Gold which sent them to the 0-1 pool. After this match, one of the teams will join 09 Gang in the 0-2 pool, while the other one will hold their spot in the middle of the standings.

Brawl Stars Round 2-2

FIFA

Friday, FIFA day! The only Slovenian player in this season, Leon “Sardinho213” Sardi will face Armin “Arminho0307” Hasanbegović in the first match. Arminho barely lost his match in the previous round and will be looking to fix his mistake versus Sardinho. Sardinho, on the other hand, was demolished by amke2001 6-1 which really isn’t a great start of the season. Though we are still early on and there are plenty of chances for the Slovenian FIFA player to redeem himself, his first being on Friday versus Arminho.

Marko “Klaic” Klaić and Emir “Sulja” Suljović – a clash between the new players. Each of them won one of the qualifying cups despite facing great competition from the whole region, but their start wasn’t the best and they are now looking to get their first victory. Sulja fell to brstimir and klaic wasn’t able to defeat FIFAFICO. After Friday ends, one of them will be playing in the 0-2 pool, while the second one will join FIFAFICO, esad1memic and the Sardinho/Arminho winner with 1-1.

FIFA Round 2-2

CS:GO

ONYX weren’t able to compete on Sunday so the match was rescheduled for the next playday. That means that we will be watching three great CS:GO matches on Sunday, with ONYX opening up the fourth playday at 14 o’clock. Their opponents will be PORTUGAL.

When that match concludes, Midnight will take on Onliners in our second BO3 of the day. Both teams are new to the League and haven’t met each other yet, which means that the match will be even more interesting than usual. To end the day, 4glory will face Good Game – a match between two of the favorites for this season of A1 Adria League.

brstimir and amke2001 are just a step away from the playoffs!

FIFAFICO, brstimir, amke2001, and esad1memic were the quartet of players that competed in FIFA’s second round of the SWISS stage today.

The first match was intense until the very end, a statement proven by the fact that amke scored the winning goal at the last minutes of the third game. The match between these two regional FIFA veterans ended with an 8:7 score. As both of these matches were a part of the winners’ pool, this win put amke just a step away from the FIFA playoffs.

Unlike the first match that was clinched by amke in the very end, brstimir showed FIFAFICO who’s the boss and filled FIFAFICO’s net with goals in two games. The first game of their match saw FIFAFICO show some resistance and score a goal. On the other side, brstimir scored four. Even that one goal was too hard of a challenge for brstimir’s opponent in the second game where FIFAFICO lost 5:0.

The intense action-packed FIFA evening can be rewatched below:

The first round of the SWISS stage is now behind us! Here are the duels and matches that we will be watching during this week of A1 Adria League.

Brawl Stars

Noble Elite BLK are going to look for revenge for the organization’s Red squad in their match versus Tora Gold. Both teams are favorites for this season of the League and the matchup will determine which team will be only a win away from the playoffs of this seventh season of the A1 Adria League. The second match will feature two teams from the 0-1 pool – Omerta and 09 Gang. Omerta narrowly lost their match against Mayoi last week and they are eager to win their first match now. 09 Gang on the other hand forfeited their last match and we will watch them for the first time on Thursday.

League of Legends

More information about this season’s League format as well as instructions on how to SIGN UP for the qualifiers can be found on the following LINK.

klaic, Sulja fail to upset their opponents in the first round!

After all the excitement from yesterday’s Brawl Stars, today we headed to the virtual stadiums where the FIFA players clashed to close out the first SWISS round of the season.

Klaic started great against his Croatian opponent, FIFAFICO. The new player in the league won his match 4:1, but unfortunately, those were all the goals that he scored today. FIFAFICO came back strong in the second game, scoring six goals to turn the whole game around and win the series 7:4. This put him up in the 1-0 pool together with amke2001, esad1memic, and after the second match, brstimir.

Brstimir and Sulja faced off in the second match of the day with the former taking the win after two intense matches. The two games ended with a one-goal difference, with brstimir being on the winning side in both cases. Firstly, Sulja managed to lose 1:2, and in the second match, the result was tied until the very end when brstimir scored his fourth goal and finished the match 4:3.

This week in A1AL: Time to close out the first round!

Six exciting matchups in our three current titles will be entertaining our followers during the second A1 Adria League SWISS week.

Brawl Stars

Tora Gold managed to upset Noble Elite Red during the first Brawl Stars week. The second match wasn’t played out because 09 Gang’s third player wasn’t able to play, but the first derby showed us the high-quality Brawl Stars that we are used to watching in the region.

QSKE Gaming versus Noble Elite BLK and Mayoi versus Omerta – these are the two matches that we will be watching today – the day dedicated to Brawl Stars. QSKE’s squad is in really good form recently and this match is going to show just how much the team has developed during the last period. Mayoi is another team that is known to all the Brawlers in the region. The Croatian team is considered to be a favourite in their match against Omerta, but that also puts all the pressure on their shoulders.

Brawl Stars SWISS 1

FIFA21

While Thursday is reserved for Brawl Stars, Friday is a day for our football fans. This week we will see the two of the newer FIFA players in the League clash against brstimir and FIFAFICO.

The first game of the day, starting at 20:00 o’clock, will be a duel between FIFAFICO and klaic, the Bosnian player who managed to upset some of the favourites in the qualifying cups and secure his place in the seventh A1 Adria League season. Right after that match comes to an end, brstimir will face Sulja, another underdog who outplayed the veterans during the qualifiers.

FIFA SWISS 1

CS:GO

4glory and Midnight will start our second CS:GO playday. The Serbian powerhouse will play against the last team to qualify for the League, Midnight. This mix of young players is unproven on the scene, but this is the perfect chance for them to take the next step in their careers.

The former DEEPFEAR team, now playing as Onlinerss, is matched up with the Macedonian side of Good Game. Both teams are looking to enter the 1-0 pool and this is going to be a match to remember. The Macedonian players recently qualified for the next ESEA Advanced season, and the Onlinerss core won the third season of the BIH CS:GO League.

CS:GO SWISS 1

Tora Gold stun Lavvek & co.; amke demolishes Sardinho with 6:1!

Brawl Stars and FIFA, two of the three games that ended their qualifiers last week, closed out the first round of the A1 Adria League Season 7 SWISS stage.

Brawl Stars

Our first two matches of the Brawl Stars group stage were played out yesterday. In the first game of the day, we watched a Croatian derby between Tora Gold and NobleElite Red. These two teams already met each other during the qualifiers with NobleElite Red coming out victorious in that match. This time, Tora Gold managed to outperform their rivals and secured the first SWISS win. The match was intense until the very end and went all the way into the fifth map, which saw Tora Gold triumph over the Red squad.

During the duel between Lil Surprise and 09 Gang, the latter had to forfeit because one of their players left the team during the game, and they had no substitutes to replace him. Lil Surprise – the winners of the second qualifiers are now a part of the 1-0 pool, together with team Tora Gold.

 

FIFA21

Just a day after the first Brawl Stars matches concluded, the regional FIFA players stepped into the football courts to win their first matches for this season. Esad “esad1memic” Memić and Armin “arminho0307” Hasanbegović marked the beginning of this season’s group stage. What followed was a close game that saw esad1memic clinch a 3:2 win in the series. arminho was a great opponent, but the season 5 champion scored one more and entered the 1-0 SWISS pool.

Tarik “amke2001” Novo, the winner of the first qualifying cup for this season, faced off against Leon “Sardinho213” Šardi and managed to get a convincing win in the series. After the games concluded, amke had a 6-1 lead against his Slovenian opponent and secured his spot in the 1-0 pool.

Some familiar names were seen playing under the Noble Elite Red and BLK tags during the third qualifier. In the quarterfinals, Noble Elite Red bested Crna ruka, while BLK was better than Immortal Balkans. O9 Gang and QSKE advanced to the semis over Wolfs and Red Devils, respectively. The qualifier ended with a Noble Elite Red win. Lavvek’s Red squad was able to outplay DzonDzon and the rest of BLK and earn the biggest amount of points for this qualifier.

FIFA21

Just like Brawl Stars, FIFA’s four-cup qualifying process ended this weekend. During the previous weekend, klaic upset the usual favorites and managed to snatch the grand 100 points. This time, the player that surprised everyone was the Bosnian player Sulja – he beat brstimir in the grand finals and put himself in the top 8 overall rankings.

Sunday was a day for one of NK Osijek‘s new players, esad1memic. The Bosnian player plowed through the competition on his way to the finals, beating his new Osijek teammate, Jasikm in the quarterfinal. FIFAFICO and Ajdin977 were the last two players separating esad1memic from his grand prize and he managed to beat them.

One step closer to the Group Stage!

The first week of qualifiers is now behind us. Our FIFA players and Brawl Stars teams earned their first points, and in CS:GO, three teams secured their spot in the group stage of the upcoming A1 Adria League season.

Brawl Stars

Two of the four qualifying Brawl Stars cups were played out during the weekend. We were met with a change of pace in the first qualifier. Good Game Gold and Red, the teams that dominated the last season, faced each other in the first round and the Gold players were eliminated. The Red squad didn’t have much better results either, losing to Immortal Balkans, but they managed to snatch 20 points, finishing this qualifier 5-8th.

O9 Gang triumphed in the first cup after beating Mayoi in the finals. Except for these four teams, Wolfs, QSKE Gaming 5M Gaming Elite and Ekipa 69 also won their share of points.

On Sunday, 32 teams entered the Brawling arenas to battle it out and try to qualify for the seventh A1 Adria League season.

Good Game Red, Ekipa 69, Crna ruka and Mayoi placed 5-8th and Good Game Gold and O9 Gang finished in the top four.

The FIFA qualifiers started off with a massive bang in the second qualifiers. A player from Bosnia and Herzegovina, klaic, bested arminho0307, Sivii7 and finally, esad1memic, to win the second FIFA21 A1 Adria League qualifier. klaic is a player that has played plenty of FIFA in the past, but this is allegedly his first competitive tournament.

The previous cup was won by amke2001. FIFAFICO was unable to defeat him in the finals and only got 70 points. esad1memic ended this qualifier as the third best player, followed by HRVoje-1995. The top 8 was completed by brstimir, xMarjus, Hara and Sardinho213.

A1 Adria League Season 7 - CS:GO

The next qualifiers are starting soon. Head out to our Games page, SIGN UP, and become the next regional esports superstar!

With two seasons of the highest tier, the A1 Adria League is HERE!

Despite the unexpected troubles and hardships that the COVID-19 pandemic brought to the world, the last year was a massive success for the A1 Adria League project. We experimented with two new titles and we are happy to say that it paid off! In the last season, Good Game Gold and Red had a fierce Brawl Stars rivalry and in the end, the Gold players won the main prize during the Reboot Online Games Week.

CS:GO saw yet another win for the lvlUP core. After a shaky start in the SWISS stage, the Serbian powerhouse bounced back and claimed their third A1 Adria League title in a row. Season 6 saw a mix of FIFA20 and FIFA21 as it happened during the usual transitional period for the football simulation game. amke2001 was the player who adapted to the FIFA21 environment the fastest and he secured first place! Lastly, despite LAZR having a perfect group stage, Nikola and Joža Esports were crowned the Clash Royale Season 6 champions.

The new year brings new challenges!

Seasons 7 & 8 will see the return of one of the League’s first titles – League of Legends. As we bid our farewells to Clash Royale, we are glad to welcome League of Legends back to our main games roster. The other games will stay the same which means that we will spend this year watching two more action-packed seasons filled with CS:GO, Brawl Stars, and FIFA!

The regional League of Legends scene has developed during the last couple of years and we are happy to introduce LOL once again. We are expecting a huge turnout from some of the region’s finest as well as the players that are looking for their chance of becoming the next regional superstars. After all, A1 Adria League has been the region’s talent proving grounds for years and we plan to continue that tradition into 2021 as well.

Brawl Stars

While the decision to change Hearthstone for Brawl Stars was surely a hard one, Supercell’s arena shooter showed us all that it is one of the greatest mobile esports in the industry. We have collected your feedback and have introduced some changes for the upcoming two seasons of the League.

Instead of hosting a number of qualifiers throughout the season, we will only have four cups and we will be focusing on the group stage of the tournament. The most successful teams from the qualifying cups will advance to a BO5/BO3 SWISS stage that will determine the four playoffs contestants. The four finalists will clash in a double-elimination BO3 bracket for a chance to win their share of the Season 7 €2,000 prize pool.

During every cup, the 16 best teams will earn points depending on their results. In the end, the first eight will advance to the SWISS stage:

First place – 100 points
Second place – 70 points
Third place – 50 points
Fourth place – 50 points
Fifth to eight place – 20 points
Ninth to sixteenth place – 10 points

Brawl Stars has been turning heads for the last two seasons and the scene in the region is bigger than ever. What does Supercell’s game have in store for us this time?

FIFA

While being a completely different game from Brawl Stars, we have found out that similar formats bring the best out of both of the games. Season 7 will once again be played on PlayStation 4. Four qualifiers will precede the SWISS stage that will see our regional FIFA players fight for the four playoffs spots.

The SWISS stage will boast a BO3 match format, while the final stage will be played in a double-elimination bracket that will once again crown our new football champion in the region.

Once again, the 16 competitors that have secured the top spots will earn points that will be split in the following manner:

First place – 100 points
Second place – 70 points
Third place – 50 points
Fourth place – 40 points
Fifth to eight place – 20 points
Ninth to sixteenth place – 10 points

CS:GO

Five years and six A1 Adria League seasons and CS:GO in the region is stronger than ever! The teams are preparing and a huge shuffle has been happening in the Adria regional scene during the last months while everyone awaits the return of the king of FPS games – Counter-Strike. We will feature a similar format for Season 7, with small changes in the teams that will be participating in the League.

This season, six of the eight League teams will join us by playing two qualifying cups that are open to the whole region. Last season’s winners will receive one of the two direct invites, and a second invite will be revealed soon! We will have the chance to watch a spectacular BO3 SWISS stage once again. The four teams that reach three wins will play in the playoffs event for a chance to become the reigning champion of the biggest regional esports competition!

Organizations like 4glory and ONYX along with all the older organizations that are still a part of the scene are noticing the amount of talent that this region produces and are crucial in the development of the Adriatic scene. It is always nice to see organizations investing in the regional teams and our biggest wish is that the A1 Adria League will help those players and teams achieve their biggest dreams!

Will someone manage to outperform Filip “aVN” Belojica and his team, or will we see the Serbian powerhouse win their fourth season in a row?

League of Legends

Since the first two seasons, our fans have longed for a League of Legends comeback. KlikTech in Season 1 and ASUS ROG ELITE in Season 2 were the best teams at the time and now it is time to decide who will be the champion of the seventh A1 Adria League season. We have prepared an interesting format for all the teams from every country in the region so that each one of the countries included in the A1 Adria League will have their own team represent them in the group stage.

The eight countries in the region will each host two qualifying cups which will earn four teams a spot in their respective National League. The eight National Leagues will have a double-elimination BO3 bracket. The teams that survive this stage will play the Regional Playoff – another double-elimination bracket that will culminate with a Best of 5 grand finals match.

After five seasons, League of Legends is BACK! It’s time for you to take the battle to Summoner’s Rift and come back a CHAMPION!

Joža Esports win Clash Royale; amke2001 is the FIFA21 champion!

What an amazing time we had during the sixth A1 Adria League season. The sixth Clash Royale season saw Joža Esports secured the first place even though LAZR didn’t lose a single group stage game, and in FIFA, amke2001 was the best player in the double-elimination bracket.

Clash Royale

The group stage produced some intense moments and with that in mind, we came to the finals in which the following matches did not disappoint at all. Joža Esports as an underdog went from the bottom to the top in an extraordinary fashion.

All teams participated in the Gauntlet system, which meant that  Team LAZR already secured a spot and the rest had to fight for the second seat. But, there was a catch – the games were played in BO5 format (1v1, 2v2, KotH, 1v1 and 1v1).

Joža (ex Totem) played the first game against Tribe Academy and the winner of that match was supposed to go against Flayn eSports. Joža Esports was down 1-2 after the first three games and it seemed like they were going to step aside after only one match. But, Joža’s players showed great composure which gave them an edge in the end and they won the match against Tribe.

Joža Esports then went to the semifinal where Flayn eSports was waiting. Flayn was a favorite in this match, but Joža showed us that even a mighty can fall. Surprisingly, it was a much easier match for Joža against Flayn than it was versus Tribe. The team won 3-1 and went to the final.

The undefeated team of the group Team LAZR was waiting for them in the final. Absolute powerhouse with 10 victories and zero losses was ready to face the underdog. LAZR took the lead in the 1v1, but Joža returned the favor in 2v2 set. KotH was a close one with LAZR managing to get on top, but in the next two sets, Joža Esports’ players pulled themselves together and won the match with a final score being 3-2.

So that is it – Joža Esports is the winner of Clash Royale in the sixth season of A1 Adria League. Team LAZR came home second with only one defeat, Flayn eSports was third and Tribe Academy fourth. It was a season worth watching and we can’t wait to see what 2021 has in store for us.

Clash Royale’s teams finished the sixth A1 Adria League season in the following manner:

1. Joža Esports
2. Team LAZR
3. Flayn eSports
4. Tribe Academy

FIFA

FIFA was the last A1 Adria League game to finish – its playoffs were played on Sunday and amke took one final W for this season. The four top players from the nine qualifiers met each other in the final playoffs kup.

esad1memic and Amke2001 player the first semifinal, while brstimir and Ajdin977 met each other later on. Amke and brstimir advanced through to the upper bracket finals where amke was able to best the veteran player.

Ajdin977 failed to win the elimination match between him and Esad and he, unfortunately, finished the A1 Adria League in fourth place. esad1memic managed to complete the comeback and qualify for the finals after winning against brstimir but that didn’t help him in the finals. Amke2001 reigned supreme over the season five winner and is now the A1 Adria League S6 champion.

1. Amke2001 – €1,100
2. esad1memic – €600
3. brstimir – €300
4. Ajdin977 – €150
