Ivas: We always do our best in both European and regional tournaments

The last rotating game finished last weekend. The PUBG tournament in A1 Adria League went into the hands of a well-known team Entropiq, as was expected. We talked with one of the members of this team Jurica “ivas” Baronić about his experience in A1AL, PCS 6, and their future plans.

Congratulations on winning the title. What does it feel like to be the first champion of the PUBG tournament in the A1 Adria League?

It’s always a good feeling winning the first place, especially now because we played with a mixed roster and we didn’t even have two first-team members.

What were your expectations before the tournament and what other team played the best in your opinion?

Winning the title was expected, we always give our best to show what we can do whether it’s in the big European or regional tournament. The team that played the best was definitely Mforce.

This season we have seven games instead of four, from which three lasted two weekends, including PUBG. What do you think of this new format in A1AL?

It’s a great thing you did, adding PUBG as one of the titles in the A1 Adria League. Every new tournament is more than welcome.

Recently you won PCS 6 Europe. Did you expect to win that title and what did it feel like to overcome all the European teams and bring home the title?

We believed we have enough quality to make a great success and result. This is one of the biggest achievements for our regional esports scene. Winning the PCS 6 was the result of a two-year tough work, and becoming the champion of Europe against organizations such as FaZe Clan, Team Liquid, NAVI, Heroic, and others is indescribable.

Do you expect to qualify for Global Championship 2022, since you made a large number of points by winning PCS 6?

At the moment we are first with 475 PGC points. If we look at the statistics we have a 97% chance to qualify for PUBG Global Championship 2022. Our focus is to be prepared for every upcoming tournament and be ready for the world championship that will be held at the end of the year.

What are your plans after this tournament?

Our plan is to continue with a series of good results. There may be a new Entropiq bootcamp planning, but for more juicy details make sure to follow our socials!

Entropiq is the first PUBG champion in A1AL!

The last rotating game in this season’s A1 Adria League is behind us. PUBG competition was the last out of the league’s four new games we implemented. As expected, the first PUBG tournament winner was no other than Entropiq.

Entropiq dominated the playoffs

Many teams competed yesterday on as many as five maps. As the fans could have seen two games were played on Miramar, and three on Erangel. Entropiq was a big favorite ever since the competition had started, and they justified that role last night in the PUBG playoffs.

The first map went into the hands of Entropiq as expected, while Mforce who was the most formidable opponent next to Entropiq finished the map in the third place. On the first map, the champions secured 17 kills which brought them 27 points. The second map was a peculiar one. We have seen only two kills from Reroot Gaming on the whole map, and those kills were for the win. Namely, two members of Reroot Gaming St1p1 and Velehos were left against ivas from Entropiq and Cro_L1DeRsrb_Ba from Sneaky Foxes. They managed to kill them and take the map for themselves.

The third and fifth maps also belonged to Entropiq, who secured 14 kills in each of them. The fourth map however went into the hand of an underdog team Fouward. In this map, our champions had only 5 kills, which was unusual for them.

In the end, all the wins last night, secured the Entropiq first place and gave them a great lead over the second-placed Mforce, with whom they also fought for the first place last weekend. The overall score for Entropiq in this tournament was 107 kills and 171 points. And after PCS 6 Europe, yet another, smaller tournament, respectively, was secured by this team. They now go home with the first PUBG A1 Adria League title and a 700€ prize. Congratulations!

 

The biggest favorites for winning the PUBG championship are Entropiq and Mfroce!

The last rotating game in the ninth season of the A1 Adria League is PUBG. Last night we have seen 19 teams compete for the highest number of points. Seeing as we had this many teams they all automatically secured their spot in the playoff which will be played next Saturday, or May 28th.

Entropiq and Mforce at the top of the table

Last night we have seen the overall five maps which were played, as well as it will be next week. The biggest favorite before the competition started was of course Entropiq. This team is a well-known PUBG name in the region and in the world. Recently they won the sixth PUBG Continental Series tournament for Europe. And even though in A1 Adria League this team didn’t come with completely the same roster, the core and heart of the team are still there. Entropiq was dominant on the first two maps, which they won.

The third map went into the hands of the team TaTu HuniEs, while the victorious team on the last two maps was Mforce. Up until the last map, Entropiq was in first place on the table with the highest number of points. However, after the fifth map was over they had fallen to second place while Mforce took the lead. Mforce secured the top of the table with 47 kills and 83 points, while Entropiq sits in second place with 43 kills and 68 points. The most valuable player that can be singled out was Entropiq’s CROMAN86 who had an amazing performance throughout all five maps.

Next week we can expect a fierce fight from these teams when the best regional PUBG squad will take home the prize and the prestige title. Some of the other teams who still have a chance for the title and are the favorites are TaTu HuniEs, Sneaky Foxes, and Replay, besides the two mentioned above.

Top 5 PUBG teams after the qualifier:

  1. Mforce (47 kills, 83 points)
  2. Entropiq (43 kills, 68 points)
  3. TaTu HuniEs (39 kills, 56 points)
  4. Sneaky Foxes (25 kills, 47 points)
  5. Replay (26 kills, 45 points)

VALORANT and PUBG – two new titles in A1 Adria League!

We promised more games than ever in the ninth season of the A1 Adria League! VALORANT and PUBG: Battlegrounds complete the list of seven games in which players all across the region will be able to compete and showcase their skills.

VALORANT – Riot Games’ tactical FPS

Inspired by the Counter-Strike series of tactical shooters, VALORANT takes 5v5 action to another level. On the first day of the beta, VALORANT amassed the second most concurrent viewers for any game ever on Twitch, with 1.73 million viewers tuning in across dozens of streams. Since its release, it developed into a full-scale esports ecosystem with millions of players and fans worldwide. What makes it different from CS:GO are mostly Agents and their abilities which bring more strategy and depth to the game. As previously mentioned, it’s completely free-to-play. If you haven’t tried it already, we strongly suggest you do so!

PUBG: Battlegrounds

Previously known as PlayerUnkown’s Battlegrounds, or simply PUBG is a free-to-play multiplayer battle royale game. It was initially released in 2017. Since then it made a huge impact on the gaming industry as well as esports. It’s available for multiple platforms. In the first three days of its Windows release, PUBG made 11 million dollars! More than five million copies were sold in just the first three months of early access. It won Best Multiplayer Game awards on both Golden Joystick Awards and The Game Awards back in 2017. What appeals to the players and fans the most, besides the action, is a simple goal. Be the last survivor in the match! Soon we will find out who will remain the last in the Adriatic region. Following the rules of the biggest and most competitive PUBG tournaments, in the A1 Adria League, Season 9 players will compete in the first-person mode (FPP) on PC.

 

VALORANT and PUBG for the first time in the League

Two new games will be a part of the A1 Adria League Season 9 alongside CS:GO, Brawl Stars, FIFA22, League of Legends, and Clash Royale. We decided to give the opportunity to more players and communities to participate and compete in the League. Both games are popular esports titles with a plethora of regional players. Domagoj “Doma” Fancev and Dragan “element” Milanović already made an impact on the global VALORANT scene. Regional PUBG teams and players are not far behind.

Now there will be even more opportunities for all the VALORANT and PUBG players from the Adriatic region to compete! Both games will be played over the course of two consecutive Saturdays. The first Saturday will be reserved for the qualifiers and the next one for the playoffs. The detailed format will be published in time. For now, here are the dates for VALORANT and PUBG.

VALORANT
Qualifiers – 23rd, April 2022
Playoffs – 30th, April 2022

PUBG
Qualifiers – 21st, May 2022
Playoffs – 28th, May 2022
