Another mini tournament is over as we are getting closer to the finish of the 12th A1 Adria League season. Namely, PUBG got a new champion after three seasons, Grove Street. Read on to learn how they reached the top spot and every interesting detail of the tournament!
Exciting first day of competition
We have seen many signed-up teams and some of the favorites were Sniip, Late to Party, Idemo Bato, and Rock Solid Boys as the first day of the tournament started hectic. On the first map, we saw quite a chaotic midgame as all teams tried to take the best possible positions, and some of the biggest favorites lost key players. Sniip benefited from an early rotation into the center of the zone, which followed them to the very end. They managed to win the Chicken Dinner even though they made a tactical mistake and got separated at the finish.
On the second map, the uncomfortable first zone dictated that all teams frantically searched for an early entrance into it, and Late To Party managed to get through the quite chaotic game the best and was rewarded for its stable and disciplined game with a 4-to-1 situation at the end. They had as many as 12 kills and first place on the ranking list.
Changing the map also brings a total change to the table. The outsiders outplayed numerous favorites, and in the chaotic finale, we fell from 29 living players to only 11 fighters in less than 60 seconds. Ja Genau team shot very well, but he was not rewarded with kills for their efforts, they will have to settle for placing in the top 4. Together as one secured the Chicken Dinner, but they surely must regret that they did not confirm more kills on Taeg.
The fourth map was won by Sniip and his team while the fifth and the most popular Erangel by our champions. And thus ended the first day of the PUBG competition.
Pubg Day 2 and a last chance for the top 8
Right at the beginning of the first game on the second day of the tournament, the underdogs took the opportunity to find unheated favorites, and in the end, we saw four teams from the bottom of the table. Menace did the best, winning the Chicken Dinner, and Ja Genau launched themselves into the top 8.
On the second Erangel, we saw a show of force by Sniip and Late to Party. Both teams “transferred” 10 kills, and in the clutch end, Zeko almost clutched. Still, he lacked a few better shots to secure the win, so Late to Party celebrated.
Vikendi relaunched Ja Genau into the top 8 – Carlo97 was the real hero of this team, as he dominated the entire game. In the late game, he broke key situations twice, first with two huge headshots from AWM on Grove Street players, and then in a 1v1 situation against XGlide’s Needex.
The fourth map saw the final battle between Together as One and XGlide where the latter profited with many kills and a Chicken Dinner. Furthermore, the highlight of the fifth map was a 2v1 battle between the BOMBER team and Grove Street. Woxez handled this situation brilliantly and took the Chicken Dinner for Grove Street with a clutch shot.
Grove Street victorious in the finals
Day three saw a dramatic finish to the tournament as the efforts of Grove Street and TogetherAsOne led to a photo finish between the two teams. TogetherAsOne’s bold rush on the last map, where they were forced to chase down an 18-point gap that Grove Street had, led to a head-to-head clash where Molodoct had to clutch and eliminate Grove Street.
This put TaO in a situation where they needed a Chicken Dinner and 5 kills, which ultimately did not materialize as 4UP intercepted TaO and extinguished their hopes of victory. Moreover, Team Ja Genau must be pleased with the third day of competition as they managed to jump from 9th to third place and achieve the highest number of points earned during this day of competition.
