A1 Adria League Season 10 FIFA 23 Group Stage

The important thing to note is that after the qualifiers we are switching from FIFA 22 to FIFA 23. Players had some time to adjust and build their teams. Tarik “Novo” Novo (amke) dominated the leaderboard in the qualifiers with 220 points. At this point, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Novo is confirming his spot as the best FIFA player in the region. In the upcoming season, we’ll be watching esad1memic and brstimir again, excellent players that were challenging Novo in previous seasons. Gruby managed to secure second place with overall 160 points and is looking really good going into the group stage. Hara grabbed third place with 130 points. The same amount that esad1memic has. Brstimir is just below them. The remaining three players are Sardinho213Encika, and BrunoGuimaraes21. Every season we have at least one underdog that pops up into the scene and brings chaos amongst the favorites. Who will it be this season? The format will be the same as for Brawl Stars. Five rounds of SWISS after which the Top 4 will advance to the playoffs.

Jazavci won the last Brawl Stars qualifier; teams ready for group stage

With a short delay, the Brawl Stars qualifiers are finally finished. Many surprises occurred during this season’s qualifier cups. The top eight teams are ready for the group stage of the A1 Adria League, and the leader of the BS competition is team OMERT4, followed by Jazavci and Salada de Frutas.

OMERT4 dominant; Salada failed to win a single qualifier

The final standings for the Brawl Stars qualifiers are here. After many exciting and intense matches, we have our 8 contenders. They will fight against each other and try to win the title in the 10th A1AL season. We have seen the same names trying to achieve more points in the last qualifier. On the one side of the bracket, Salada de Frutas eliminated their opponents and reached the finals. While on the other side, we saw Jazavci dominate the competition. Salada won against two previous qualifier winners, GreekGod and OMERT4, but in the finals they failed, as Jazavci won the duel with a 2:0 score.

All four qualifiers went into the hands of different teams. Rolex, OMERT4, GreekGod, and Jazavci all won 100 points. The big surprise was Salada de Frutas, who usually manages to win two or three qualifiers. But now they didn’t win a single one. This season is the first where Salada isn’t at the top of the table, and it’s the first to have the eighth team qualify with only 80 points. The last season’s champions however still have enough points for the next stage. In fact, they are in third place with an overall of 170 points.

At the end of the qualifiers, OMERT4 is in first place with 290 points, followed by Jazavci who have 220 points. Salada the Frutas is third, as already mentioned, while Rolex and GreekGod share fourth place with the same amount of points, an overall of 140. The Brawl Stars group stage begins on October 6th, so don’t miss it! We may crown an underdog team this year!

Everything you need to know about the FIFA group stage in Season 10

FIFA qualifiers for the tenth season of the A1 Adria League are over! Among the fierce competition, eight players managed to secure their spot in the group stage.

The FIFA trio is back in Season 10

Tarik “Novo” Novo (amke) dominated the leaderboard in the qualifiers with 220 points. At this point, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Novo is confirming his spot as the best FIFA player in the region. In the upcoming season, we’ll be watching esad1memic and brstimir again, excellent players that were challenging Novo in previous seasons. Gruby managed to secure second place with overall 160 points and is looking really good going into the group stage. Hara grabbed third place with 130 points. The same amount that esad1memic has. Brstimir is just below them. The remaining three players are Sardinho213, Encika, and BrunoGuimaraes21. Every season we have at least one underdog that pops up into the scene and brings chaos amongst the favorites. Who will it be this season?

FIFA22 fourth qualifier standings

FIFA 23 is the name of the game

The playing field will be somewhat evened out a bit with a switch to the new FIFA game. The rest of Season 10 will be played on FIFA 23. Maybe that is the chance for other players to dethrone Novo. Players will have some time to adapt to the new game and build their teams. Every year at the same time we switch to the latest FIFA game, so this shouldn’t come as a surprise to any of the players or fans.

A1 Adria League Season 10 FIFA Schedule

Since we gave players some time to adjust to the new game we also made some changes to the schedule. Don’t worry, you can find the whole schedule below. FIFA will be played on Fridays (mostly). Except for the second round which will be played on Wednesday 12th of October. As per usual, all the games will be live-streamed on the A1 Adria League channels.

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.

Top eight FIFA22 players ready for group stage; Novo in first place

After exciting and tense FIFA22 qualifiers, we have the best eight players for the 10th A1 Adria League season competing in the group stage for the top prize. Once again Tarik Novo is dominating the competition, he finished the qualifiers at the top with an overall of 220 points.

Gruby was victorious in the fourth qualifier

We are getting closer to starting the group stage in A1 Adria League. CS:GO and FIFA22 qualifiers are finished, and we have our competitors in both games. These qualifiers weren’t surprising, as almost all the favorites secured their spot in the League. The four-time champion Tarik “Novo” Novo dominated the qualifiers once again and secured first place with 220 points. He managed to win some of the qualifiers, as well as Brstimir who we saw being the most successful in the second one.

Many talented players joined the competition such as Gruby, Hara, Bruno, as well as some familiar names such as Encika, esad1memic, and many others. The fact that we had a tiebreaker for eighth place says how intense and close the last qualifier was. Namely, Bruno “BrunoGuimaraes21” Svetina and Đorđe “JasikFIFA” Cumbo had the same amount of points and fought for the last spot in the A1AL. In the end, it was Bruno who made it through with 75 points.

Aside from Novo who is ahead with 220 points, other players aren’t that far apart. Gruby is in second place with 160 points, while Hara and esad1memic both have 130 points. Below them are Brstimir and Sardinho213 who share 120 points. Needless to say that the next stage will be more exciting than ever.

It remains to be seen if any of these seven players have what it takes to take king Novo down from the throne. For the last two years, no one has been able to do it as Tarik took home four titles in a row. The FIFA22 group stage begins on October 7th.

GreekGod is the winner of the third Brawl Stars qualifier

More than half of the qualifying Brawl Stars competition is finished. Only one more is left, but we can assume who will make it to the tenth season of the A1 Adria League, based on the points. The winner of this qualifier is team GreekGod which now has an overall of 130 points.

OMERT4 is still way ahead of the competition

Brawl Stars teams are back for yet another qualifier. The third and second to last qualifier was played last night. Familiar teams in this season’s competition again led to a fierce battle. Salada de Frutas, OMERT4, Jazavci, Rolex, Extreme Masters, and many more returned this Thursday to gather more points and secure their spot in the group stage of the A1 Adria League.

Another BS qualifier went into the hands of a different team. The first one, as we remember was won by Rolex, the second went into the hands of OMERT4, and in the last one, we saw GreekGod as the most successful team.

GreekGod gained an enormous lead with this win, over other teams. The roster made of LordTodor, Unique, Hillen, and Jevta last night earned 100 points, and now has an overall of 130. At the moment they are in third place, behind Rolex who is the second-best team with 130 points as well. OMERT4 is the leader of the table, and will definitely make it to the group stage, seeing as they already have 240 points under their name.

It was OMERT4 and GreekGod battling in the finals for the most points yesterday. In the end, the latter came out victorious with a 2:1 win. On their way to the finals, GreekGod eliminated Jazavci, and last season’s winners Salada de Frutas, which are not showing the usual dominant playstyle we expected from them.

The points are close, and nothing is over yet. The Brawl Stars competition will return next week with the fourth and last qualifier. Don’t miss the action, and sign up now if you want to compete with the best teams from the region!

A look back – The history of the A1 Adria League

In May of 2017, the Vip Adria League was announced. Since then we’ve crowned many champions, and seen many changes, whether it was name, format, games, or basically everything else. Five years later, as we are in the middle of the qualifiers for the tenth season of the League it’s time to take a look back.

Vip Adria League (2017.)

It all started in Spring 2017. with the announcement of the biggest regional esports league to date. Back then, there was only one season of the League throughout the year. Competitive integrity standards were set high with the open qualifiers and the group stage leading to the LAN finals. Three games were chosen to be a part of the League: League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and FIFA.

Reboot InfoGamer 2017 hosted the first ever Vip Adria League LAN finals in front of a live audience. Over the course of several days, fans had the opportunity to enjoy watching the best players and teams from all over the region competing for the prestigious title. Valiance&CO outplayed Squared Esports in the finals of the CS:GO. KilkTech reigned supreme in the League of Legends and another KilkTech player, Edinho, lifted the trophy in FIFA. It was a great year for KlikTech since they had representatives in all three games, and managed to win the title in two of them. It was hard to predict back then where it will all end up.

The new name (2018)

Year after the league got its new name. Vip Adria League became A1 Adria League in 2018. There were also some other significant changes. Hearthstone and Clash Royale were added to the mix to complement the CS:GO and League of Legends. Generally, the format stayed the same, and all four games had their spotlight during the LAN finals at Reboot InfoGamer 2018. Four years ago, adding a mobile game to the esports league was not as standard as it is today. Mobile gaming was growing really fast and with it the whole esports surrounding it. Still, it was pretty undeveloped if we’re comparing it with today’s standards.

Valiance&CO again proved to be by far the best regional CS:GO team, securing their second title and going on to compete on the biggest stages in the world. Along with the trophy came the invitation to the closed qualifier for the Bucharest Gaming Week. Unfortunately, regional representatives finished 3rd/4th, and Sprout went on to compete in Romania. ASUS ROG ELITE came from the biggest regional success in history after securing Top 4 placement in the European Masters 2018 Summer and claimed the trophy in League of Legends. Luka “vulee” Vulović became the best Hearthstone player in the region. Saša “SaSaa” Mišković won the first ever Clash Royale trophy in the history of the A1 Adria League.

The dual seasons

2019 was the first year in which we had two seasons of the A1 Adria League in one calendar year. Season 3 & Season 4. The concept was a bit different and the season were connected. Dota 2 was added to the League for the first time instead of League of Legends. CS:GO, Hearthstone,and Clash Royale remained a part of the League. Season 3 was played online, while Season 4 had full LAN finals at Reboot InfoGamer 2019. Only Nikola managed to win both seasons in Clash Royale. Not a single team or a player in other games managed to win both seasons. In the end, Level Up won in Dota 2. ex-BLUEJAYS were the best CS:GO team while Paljuha won the trophy in Hearthstone.

A1 Adria League Season 4

A1 Adria League Season 5 & 6

At the beginning of 2022 the COVID-19 pandemic started. Now it seems like it was a lifetime ago. FIFA 20 was introduced back to the League replacing Dota 2 and Brawl Stars jumped in instead of Hearthstone. The pandemic also meant we had to switch from LAN events to online events. The finals of the A1 Adria League were played during the Reboot Online Games Week ever since. In 2020 some interesting storylines took off. lvlUp proved to be the best CS:GO team in the region that year by winning both seasons. Crushers won Season 5 in Clash Royale, while Joza Esports won Season 6. Good Game dominated in Brawl Stars by securing second place in the spring season and then having both teams in the finals of Season 6. One of the biggest rivalries in the A1 Adria League kicked off that year with esad1memic winning the first FIFA trophy of the year and amke claiming the second one.

The return of the League of Legends

Since there was no more LAN finals at the end of the year for Season 7 and Season 8 the prize pool was redistributed so both seasons are worth the same. League of Legends came back to the League while Clash Royale took a break. While we had various winners in all the games: ONYX & PORTUGAL in CS:GO, Split Raiders & METAMOON in League of Legends, Noble Elite BLK & Flow in Brawl Stars, amke continued his streak and won both seasons in FIFA. Making it a three in a row for the first time in any game in the history of the League. Again, all the finals were played during the Reboot Online Games Week. The pandemic was still bringing havoc and it wasn’t possible to organize the LAN finals.

Where are we now?

Season 9 finished several months ago. Again, during the Reboot Online Games Week. This year seven different games were introduced to the League. CS:GO, FIFA, and Brawl Stars remained in their format, while four remaining games were played in qualifiers and playoffs format. BLUEJAYS claimed another CS:GO trophy. Salada de Frutas dominated in Clash Royale and went on to win second place at the Clash of Leagues in Salzburg. Amke made it four in a row in FIFA. DZANGLERI won the League of Legends tournament, Entropiq was the best PUBG Battlegrounds team. Balkan Stars beat Diamant Esports to claim the first ever A1 Adria League trophy in VALORANT.

Qualifiers for the tenth season of the A1 Adria League are being played right now. There is still a chance for everyone to secure their spot on the group stage. How will Season 10 of the A1 Adria League end, and how? You’ll just have to wait a bit more and find out. Meanwhile, check the qualifiers for all the games on the official page. If you want to check the full history of the A1 Adria League you can do that by visiting the History page.

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!

OMERT4 wins the second Brawl Stars qualifier

Already we are at half of our qualifier cups in the A1 Adria League. Two qualifiers are already finished, and the leader with the most points is team OMERT4, who showed outstanding performance in both cups.

OMERT4 and Salada at the top

As you remember last week we had our first Brawl Stars qualifier that went into the hands of team Rolex, while OMERT4 was in second place. Now they improved their game even more and came out victorious. On the other hand, the last year’s champions Salada de Frutas made their significant return to the stage with an appearance in the final. Unfortunately, Lavvek, DzonDzon, and Andrey didn’t manage to win the final, so they took home 70 points.

In the second qualifier, we have seen again teams such as Jazavci, Extreme Masters, Rolex, and many more. But the competition yesterday had to go into the hands of OMERT4 and Salada. Both teams were excellent last night, and they made it to the finals without losing a single game. OMERT4 with first place this week, and second last week, has an overall of 170 points. They are now sitting at the top of the table. Rolex is second with 120 points, while the third is Salada de Frutas with 80 points.

The whole competition is wide open, so there is still time to earn points and enter the 10th season of the A1 Adria League. You can already sign up for the next one HERE.
