A1 ADRIA LEAGUE SEASON 7
2021. is already off to a great start. The first season of this year once again, for the seventh time, showed us all the wonderful esports talent that our region keeps producing. We made some changes since Season 6 and introduced a new title in lieu of Clash Royale – League of Legends. Riot Games’ MOBA made its return of the A1 Adria League in spectacular fashion. Teams from Serbia, Macedonia, and Croatia played a national playoffs stage before advancing to the regional playoffs where Split Raiders outplayed the competition and sat on the throne.
Last season in Brawl Stars, we had a rivalry between Good Game Red and Gold. This time, the rivalry was between Noble Elite Red and BLK, both teams that managed to reach the grand finals at the end of the season. Noble Elite BLK continued their undefeated streak and bested Red in the finals. FIFA21 had the same format as Brawl Stars, with the only difference being the length of the playoffs. FIFA occupied two days of the Reboot Online Games Week, and when it all came to a close, Tarik “amke2001” Novo once again came out as the regional FIFA champion. Last, but not least, CS:GO’s title fell in the hands of ONYX again. For players like Aleksa “Impulse” Stankić and Dimitrije “DiMKE” Veljković, this is the fourth A1 Adria League titles, which only proves their incredible consistency over the years.
A1 ADRIA LEAGUE SEASON 6
The fifth season was an awesome introduction to the two new titles in the League, Brawl Stars and FIFA20. During the player break, we hosted a number of A1 Game Night events and we were eager to see the beginning of the sixth season. The second season of 2020 didn’t disappoint. An even bigger prize pool was available to the players, who as always, did their best to take the regional throne – and the best of the best managed to do so! In the fierce competition of Brawl Stars, two teams stood out. Good Game Red and Gold fought against each other during the entirety of the sixth season and in the end, the Gold players managed to win the first place reward of €1,000.
Despite a perfect Group Stage, Team LAZR couldn’t hold their ground in the playoffs, and the Clash Royale champions’ title went to Nikola and Joža Esports. When it comes to FIFA, amke2001 was crowned the best player of this season. The nine qualifiers culminated with a four-player playoff consisting of Ajdin, brstimir, esad1memic, and amke2001. In the Grand Finals, amke beat the season five winner and secured the main prize for himself. The former lvlUP players won their third consecutive A1 Adria League season during the Reboot Online Games Week. Once again, their opponents in the finals were the Kosovar players from Blink and once again, the Serbian powerhouse prevailed. The third place was taken by 4glory, while another Kosovar team, EAGLES, finished fourth.
A1 ADRIA LEAGUE SEASON 5
We entered the new year and the new season with two changes in our games’ roster. The DOTA 2 and Hearthstone communities made our last two seasons amazing and we are grateful for that. We decided to add two new titles instead of the aforementioned games and this season was definitely a blast. Brawl Stars made its first A1 Adria League appearance as a rising mobile esports game. The seven qualifiers that were played out saw hundreds of players playing together in teams and making their way up the leaderboard. At the end, Alpha Elite breezed past the competition and were crowned the absolute champions of A1 Adria League Brawl Stars.
CS:GO’s fifth season saw our previous winners, lvlUP, take the W once again, and secure their back-to-back champion’s title. The double-elimination playoffs proved to be a great addition once again as we had the chance to see the top four sides battle it out over two days before seeing lvlUP take the first place. FIFA made its return and our staff, together with the FIFA Balkan Community, organized a total of seven qualifiers that culminated in the playoffs of the tournament. In the end, esad1memic was the best player and he deservingly got the first-place award of €750. We introduced a different Clash Royale format that featured teams instead of individuals. The five invited teams were joined by the qualified team, Underdogs. After the round-robin Group Stage was played out, Crusher Esports showed a whole new level and were easily better than the rest of the playoffs’ teams.
