The first week of qualifiers has come to an end!

With CS:GO and FIFA finishing during the weekend, three of the four titles reached the end of the first set of qualifiers for the upcoming A1 Adria League season.

Brawl Stars

Over 80 teams signed up for the first Brawl Stars qualifiers. We saw familiar names in the Round of 16 with the Good Game Gold and Red teams securing a spot in the quarterfinals, while ULC eSports couldn’t outplay Never Surrender. FA Deadly were the better team in their match versus YouLose and Blue Whales managed to beat Old School.

Code Lyoko and FA Deadly couldn’t get past GG Gold and O9 Gang, respectively. ToDe05 and GG Red breezed past Blue Whales and MysteryWarriors secured the last spot in the semifinals. After two intense matches in the semis, both of Good Game’s teams advanced to the finals. A 3-1 victory for the Serbian side earned GG Red their first 100 points in the road to the playoffs.

Clash Royale’s only qualifier unfortunately got delayed because of problems inside the game. The qualifier will continue next Friday on the FACEIT platform.

FIFA

We had the chance to see familiar names in the first FIFA qualifier. Last season’s champion, esad1memic, convincingly secured his spot in the finals. JasikFifa and Harun met each other in the Round of 16 with the latter proceeding to the quarters. An interesting matchup happened between brstimir and amke2001 where the Serbian player managed to beat amke and enter the semifinal match versus Harun.

Even after a convincing win in his match against Aleksandar Djuric, Persunipzs wasn’t able to match up to esad1memic and ended the first qualifier in the fourth place. Harun had to play the third-place decider after a loss to brstimir who even beat the reigning champion, esad1memic, and won the first FIFA qualifier.

CS:GO

The first pair of open CS:GO qualifiers took place during the weekend. The best eight teams from this pair of qualifiers advanced to the closed qualifier that will take place during the next weekend. Three out of the eight participating teams will secure a spot in the sixth season of A1 Adria League, and the cycle will repeat for the next pair of qualifiers.

On Saturday we saw Karlo “KukaOG” Kukovec and peek me reach new heights and qualify for the closed qualifier. QSKE Gaming and Shock Bomb are now a step closer to the League after dominant victories against FREE KILL and Lemonsqueazy and the last team that secured a spot in the upcoming qualifier is Jan “jkXy” Konečnik’s Krsko squad.

After missing out on the first qualifier, Kristijan “kiLLeRa” Kukovski and GODZ1337 had no problems advancing to the closed qualifier. The Kosovar MiKS squad featuring names like vAloN and HYPER1 along with BUDI2 also entered the race for the three spots in the League. FREE KILL were the last team to end this qualifier victorious as they bested Wait Wait Wait on Inferno and Dust2 without any difficulties.

Sign up and compete in the FIFA and CS:GO qualifiers!

The first A1 Adria League day started with the Brawl Stars qualifiers. Clash Royale, unfortunately, got postponed because of problems that happened inside the game. We wouldn’t like the team that deserves the win the most to be eliminated because of a factor that they can’t influence. Until next week, it is time for FIFA and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to shine.

FIFA

This season of FIFA will feature nine qualifiers. The first three qualifiers will see the best players face off in first playoffs for a spot in the LAN finals. The same cycle will repeat in the second trio of qualifiers, and at the end, two FIFA21 players from the last three qualifiers will secure their places in the offline playoffs.

The qualifiers will once again feature a single-elimination format and they will be played on PS4. Our regional FIFA players have been asking to see Stevan Mačkić as a caster in our League. We contacted Stevan and he will now be duo-casting together with PvtMole.

Make sure to read the rules, join the qualifier, and fight for a spot in the finals!

CS:GO

Six qualified teams will join the two invited teams in the BO3 SWISS League. After each pair of qualifiers, the best eight teams will meet in a closed qualifier which will offer two spots in the main stage of the League. With both of the closed qualifiers coming to an end, we will have six new teams in the sixth season of A1 Adria League.

Blink and lvlUP received the invites to the League as they were the best two teams from the fifth A1 Adria League season. Familiar names and teams like Shock Bomb, GODZ1337, and Krsko have already signed up for the first qualifier.
We are expecting an incredible season filled with the best Adriatic Counter-Strike and we are looking forward to seeing the best of the best on LAN.

Who will win this season of A1 Adria League and bring home the lion’s share of the €11.000 prize pool?

Don’t miss the only Clash Royale qualifier!

Yesterday, we marked the beginning of the new A1 Adria League season with the first of thirteen Brawl Stars qualifiers. Today, we are turning to our other mobile title, Clash Royale.

Clash Royale has been with us since the very beginnings of the A1 Adria League. Each and every season, the players show us just how talented this region is when it comes to Clash Royale and we are extremely happy that we are able to give the players a stepping stone in their careers with our League.

Crusher Esports stunned us in the last season’s playoffs. With teams like Emperiial that had a phenomenal Group Stage and talented squads like Totem Esports, Crusher really turned a lot of heads when they dominated Emperiial 3-0 in the Grand Finals of the League. 

Just like in the last season, five teams and one qualified side will face each other in a round-robin Group Stage. This time, it is actually a double round-robin format, so the team will have the chance to play against each other twice in their roads to the playoffs. The modes remain the same, which means that we will once again see high quality 1v1, 2v2 and KOTH matches every playday.

You still have time to sign up for the only Clash Royale qualifier by clicking here. The qualifier will be held on the FACEIT platform, and we encourage the players to read through the Clash Royale rules to ensure a smooth qualifier that will see the absolute best team win.

Are you ready for the sixth A1 Adria League Season?

The fifth season of A1 Adria League surprised us all. The new titles – Brawl Stars and FIFA really showed the potential of these games in our region and we are really happy that we chose to feature them. But now, after the season came to an end, it is finally time to announce the sixth season of the A1 Adria League.

Season 6 will be much longer than our previous season and it will have formats that will let us see even more high-quality matches. The prize pool has a massive increase compared to the fifth season, so we encourage everyone to sign up and try their best to win their share of rewards in this season. In the span of the next three months, we will watch the best FIFA, Brawl Stars, Clash Royale, and CS:GO players in the biggest esports competition in our region.

Brawl Stars returns in the sixth Season!

During the last few months, we had the chance to watch the regional Brawlers battle it out in the first-ever A1 Adria League Brawl Stars season. The seven played qualifiers culminated in the double-elimination playoffs that saw the absolute favorites, Alpha Elite, be crowned the first Brawl Stars champions.

The sixth season will feature a similar format to the previous one. Instead of seven, we will now have 13 qualifiers from which the best eight teams will secure a spot in the offline finals. The total prize pool for this season will be €2.600, with the best team bringing home €1.000.

Clash Royale in the sixth season!

Six seasons of A1 Adria League, six seasons of Clash Royale! We will be stepping in the Arena once again after an amazing fifth season with even bigger awards for the best teams. We introduced the team system in Clash Royale in the last season, and the players loved it! The 1v1, 2v2, and KOTH modes let us see many more games being played than usual and PvtMole was there to entertain us and cast the games on an amazing level. In the end, Crusher Esports took the first place while Emperiial and Totem Esports followed at second and third, respectively.

Clash Royale will have the same prize pool as Brawl Stars. We will see a double round-robin format and the playoffs will once again feature the Gauntlet format. The five invited teams will be challenged by the best team from the qualifiers in the Arena. The group stage will last for 10 rounds and we will see the top four teams advance to the LAN finals. In case the offline finals are unable to take place due to quarantine measures, the playoffs will be played online.

FIFA in the sixth Season!

FIFA made its comeback as a featured game during the last season. The guys from the FIFA Balkan Community along with our staff did a great job of organizing the qualifiers and the playoffs. We saw a massive turn out from the players as everyone was excited to compete in the League and at the very end, esad1memic claimed the first prize. Jasik came close second and amke was the better player in the third-place decider.

As FIFA is a franchise that releases a new version of the game every year, our sixth season will be a bit different from the fifth one. We will have a total of nine qualifiers and three online playoffs series. First, the players will have a chance to compete in FIFA20 and at the end of August one player will secure a spot in the LAN finals. The second trio of qualifiers will be held during September which will see one more FIFA20 player advance to the offline event. As FIFA21 releases on the 6th of October, we will start the last trio of qualifiers on the 10th. The competitors will have their last chance at qualifying during the month of October and in the end, the last two players will earn their spot at the offline playoffs in Zagreb. FIFA will boast a prize pool of €2.150 and we are expecting to see even more players sign up and be a part of the qualifiers!

CS:GO in the sixth Season!

Just like Clash Royale, CS:GO has been with us since the very beginning of the League. The fifth season reminded us yet again of how exciting the regional CS:GO scene really is. lvlUP, Blink, QSKE, and GamerS1337 survived the SWISS Stage and advanced to the double-elimination playoffs. lvlUP played the playoffs with Luka “emi” Vuković and their coach Darko “soLo” Mitić and still managed to outplay their opponents and win the League. Blink came in second, while the Macedonian powerhouse, QSKE, finished as the third-best team of the season.

Blink and lvlUP, the top two sides from the fifth season will receive a direct invite for this upcoming season of the League. The remaining six teams will be decided by a combination of open and closed qualifiers. First, we will host two open qualifiers in which the best four teams from each will advance to the first closed qualifier. The closed qualifier will have a BO3 single-elimination format, and the best three teams will advance to the completely BO3 SWISS League. And if you thought that that is all, you are wrong – we have prepared €11.000 for the very best teams in the League to split between each other.

Due to the current world pandemic, there is a possibility of the season six playoffs being played online.

We are currently proceeding with the preparations as usual, but if anything changes, you will be informed on time. GLHF!
