17-year-old Gruby is the new FIFA champion!

We witnessed a spectacular FIFA finale on Saturday at Reboot Games Weekend in Zagreb. A duel between Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac and Marko “Gruby” Grubišić left everyone watching speechless. After 2:0 for brstimir, Gruby returned and ended the final series with 3:2 and became the new A1 Adria League champion in the FIFA competition.

After two years new FIFA champion was crowned

The two best FIFA players of the tenth A1 Adria League season are brstimir and Gruby. As such, they both got an invitation to the LAN event powered by A1 held at Zagreb Fair. Brstimir is one of the best FIFA players in Serbia, he has a big experience and a couple of final attendances in A1AL. On the other hand, the new champion, Gruby is only 17 years old, and this is his first appearance in the League. It only took him one try, not only to win the title but also to eliminate the four-time champion, Tarik Novo. Achievement players couldn’t get in 2 long years.

Gruby and brstimir already fought early in the playoff stage, and in that match brstimir was victorious. Gruby however took his revenge in the grand final of the A1 Adria League. Since brstimir came to the finals from the upper bracket he received an automatic win and started the finals with an advantage. However, that didn’t bother the Croatian player. Even though brstimir won the second match as well and reached a game point, Gruby woke up after that and demolished his opponent.

Gruby FIFA champion in A1 Adria League

The first win for Gruby came in the third match overall, where we saw overtime after a 2:2 result. That game went to penalties where the 17-year-old triumphed with a 4:2 score. In the next match, we only saw one goal on the side of Gruby and the youngster evened out an overall score to 2:2. The moment of truth. Fifth and deciding match. The whole audience was on the verge of ecstasy. By the words of casters, the fifth match wasn’t for the faint-hearted. It was obvious that Gruby had more fans, and everyone wanted the rookie to win.

The final match of the final also went into overtime after a 2:2 score. In the 106th minute, Gruby takes the lead and just a couple of minutes after that he scores again and everyone in the audience rose up and applauded him. Even his opponent brstimir, after conceding another goal rose up, stopped playing, and gracefully accepted defeat. The match was over even before the final whistle, as brstimir congratulated his opponent Gruby on winning a well-deserved title.

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?

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.

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.

Brstimir wins his second consecutive FIFA22 qualifier

Only one FIFA22 qualifier in A1 Adria League is left, and we already have a clear leader on the table. Miloš “brstimir” Majedevac came on top of another qualifier, and now he has an overall of 200 points.

Close fight for the top 4

Another round of interesting and intense matches in the FIFA22 competition was played on Friday. The same familiar names we have seen fighting for their chance to enter the 10th season of the A1 Adria League, but only eight will be able to. So far, brstimir is going to make it for sure, as well as Sardinho213.

Brstimir was the most successful in the last two qualifiers. He now has 200 points and sits at the top. Right behind him in second place is Sardinho with 160 points. Our current champion Tarik “Novo” Novo is third with 120 points, while the next two players have an overall of 100 points. Esad1memic and Tuna13 with 100 points also have a high chance of entering the league.

Sardinho213 and Tuna13 dominated one side of the bracket. They faced each other in the semifinals, but Sardinho came out victorious and moved on to the finals. On the other side of the bracket, it was esad1memic and brstimir who made it to the semifinals, and as we know brstimir won that fight.

The fight for third place went into the hands of Marko “Tuna13” Antunović, while the whole thing was won by brstimir. Novo wasn’t very successful in this qualifier, seeing as he only won 10 points. The last chance to earn points will be in the fourth FIFA22 qualifier which is being played next Friday. Sign up now!

FIFA22 3rd qualifier standings

Brstimir secures 100 points in the second FIFA22 qualifier

As the two FIFA22 qualifiers in A1 Adria League are already finished, we only have two more left before entering the league. So far, the biggest favorites of the competition Brstimir and Novo are occupying the top of the table.

Brstimir misses first, wins the second qualifier

We already saw last week that the FIFA competition this season is going to be more challenging than ever. A lot of players are looking for the chance to compete in the tenth A1AL season. But only eight players will enter the league.

The four-time champion Tarik “Novo” Novo already achieved a win in the first qualifier securing 100 points. He didn’t have the same success in the second one and only managed to get 10 points. On the other hand, another familiar face came out victorious. Miloš “Brstimir” Majdevac was the winner of the second qualifier in the FIFA22 competition. And even though he missed the first one, he is at the top of the table, sitting comfortably right under Novo.

In the first match of the finals, we have seen as many as seven goals. Leon “Šardi” Šardi was his opponent in the finals, but he came short, as Brstimir won that Bo3 final. The first match ended with a 4:3 score, and the second one with a 2:1 in favor of Brstimir who kept his momentum.

The rest of the bracket was interesting to watch as well and was not short of surprises. Marko “Tuna” Antunović reached the semi-finals for the first time in his A1 Adria league career. He even managed to win 50 points in the duel for 3rd place versus Esad “esad1memic” Memić.

The third qualifier is scheduled for next week, and you can already sign up for it HERE.

FIFA22 2nd qualifier bracket

Novo is FIFA champion for the fourth time in a row!

FIFA22 championship this year in A1 Adria League was as intense as ever. In the group stage, it seemed as though the king of FIFA Tarik Novo won’t be able to secure the playoff. But he did it in the last round, and in the playoffs dominated everyone in his path, winning his fourth consecutive title.

Novo – The undisputed A1AL champion

Whoever comes to challenge Novo in A1 Adria League goes home empty-handed. History repeated itself this season, as we have seen Tarik Novo win the title once again. Even though the Bosnian struggled throughout the group stage, he showed impeccable performance in the playoffs.

In the semifinals, Tarik was against the rookie player Mrky, while Esad had to defeat brstimir. The winners of the semifinals were Novo and brstimir who went on to fight in the upper bracket final, while Esad and Mrky fell down to the lower bracket. Novo had no problem defeating the Serbian player, and he did it with a 2:0 score. This led Novo to the grand finals where he waited for his opponent.

In the lower bracket the first match was played between Esad and Mrky, and Mrky was the one to go into the next stage of the competition, or the lower bracket final. Esad “esad1memic” Memić with this defeat was eliminated and finished the competition as fourth. In the lower bracket final the rookie of the season Marko “Mrky” Matančić defeated brstimir and made a big upset, seeing that brstimir was a huge favorite in this matchup. Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac with the loss in the lower bracket final took third place.

The biggest surprise of the season Mrky had now reached the grand final and was about to go head to head with the three-time champion Novo. The matches were Bo5 and it was as intense as ever. Both players gave their best and never wavered. The final went to game 5, and in the end, the Bosnian player was just too good to be defeated. He justified the role of favorite, defended the title once again, and took his fourth in a row in the A1 Adria League.

  1. Tarik “Novo” Novo – 950€
  2. Marko “mrky2402” Matančić – 500€
  3. Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac – 300€

FIFA22 is waiting for the new champion!

The FIFA22 group stage in A1 Adria League didn’t lack surprises and upsets. We have watched eight players compete for the top 4 and the spot in the playoff stage of the competition. In the end, it was Mrky, brstimir, Novo, and esad1memic who secured it.

Can someone dethrone Novo?

It is known that for the last couple of seasons one player has been dominating the A1 Adria League in the FIFA competition. Tarik “Novo” Novo this season has the chance to win his fourth trophy in a row. Even though he is a big favorite, seeing that he is defending the title, he had some trouble securing the spot in the playoff stage of this season’s competition. With the 3:2 score, he managed to secure the FIFA22 playoffs in the last round.

Novo: “I expect tough competitors, but for sure I will give my best just as I have done so in the past. I hope for the best, but in FIFA everything is possible. I want to congratulate all players on the well-played matches, and wish everyone good luck in the next stage of the competition.”

The first player who secured this stage in A1 Adria League is Marko “Mrky2402” Matančić. He is the only player from this year’s top 4 who didn’t participate in the last season’s playoff. A new player with a lot to offer. He showed in a couple of first rounds of the group stage what his intentions were and were the first to go further in the competition. And he did it with a perfect score of 3:0.

Apart from Mrky, another familiar name is making his appearance in the top 4 in FIFA22. Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac has yet again secured himself a chance at the title. As he knows his opponents well, we can only expect fierce competition and outwitting of sorts.

Another Bosnian player is gonna compete for the prize, and it is the champion from the fifth A1AL season. Esad “esad1memic” Memić took his time to secure this stage and have a chance to take the title once again. He secured it by defeating a new player in the league Jero, which was more than expected.

Esad: “Top eight went by easier than ever even though it looked hard. Sarajevo yet again has two players in the playoffs, and the competition is always the same, the same people are here besides the new addition as the fourth player is Mrky who is a great player. I don’t have any expectations this season, to be honest, what happens happens. I’ve never been more cool-headed and that might be the problem for my opponent, and not me. Regards to everyone from A1AL and to all who follow.”

Brstimir defeats Jero and advances to the FIFA22 playoffs!

Yet another FIFA22 round is behind us. Some great matches have been played last night, and we have seen an intense and fierce competition. A1 Adria League is continuing to host this game, and every year more and more talented players are showing what they can do in this competition. After Mrky, another player makes the cut and secures the playoff. brstimir with an overall score of 3:1 is now safe in the top 4.

brstimir expectedly joins Mrky in the playoffs

The first match of this round was played between our three-time champion Novo and esad1memic. They are both familiar players and they have faced each other too many times now. Novo seemed to find a way to adapt to the new playstyle of his opponent quicker, and without much problem he easily outclassed Esad. Winning 2-0 in the first match, and filling Esad’s net to the top in the second match with 4-0 as a final result. Both players are set to find their way to the final 4 next week since they both stand at a 2-2 score now.

The second match was a fight for survival in the league. Both JasikFIFA and DrPecho had the same score of 1:2 and a win here meant everything. Pecho kept his cool all the time, and he even almost walked the ball into the net of his opponent a few times. In the end, he secured himself another appearance on our stream next week where he will face Novo for a final chance to sneak into the top 4. On the other side, this is where we say goodbye to Jasik who is eliminated from the competition.

brstimir in the last match of the day showed he deserved the spot in the playoffs since the competition started. Before Mrky took him down last round, he hadn’t lost a game. And now with a win over Jero, he got what he rightfully deserved. Is this his season maybe? He seems very confident with a playstyle that differs from all the other players, with abusing player lock and the newest meta techniques that are very hard to master. On the other side, Jero will also have one more chance next week. If he manages to secure the spot in the playoffs it will be his first ever in the A1 Adria League.

FIFA22 standings

Brstimir takes another win; Novo still winless

Last week we have had many exciting matches in this season’s FIFA competition. The first round of FIFA22 in A1 Adria League had an amazing start, as we have seen brstimir took down Novo, the three-time champion. While rookies like Jero debuted in the league. Yesterday the second round of the group stage was played, and it wasn’t any less interesting.

Brstimir, Mrky2402, and esad1memic defeatless

Last night we saw another surprising playday in the FIFA22 competition. Round 2 in the group stage opened esad1memic and Encika, two Bosnian players. Esad already secured his first win last week, and he was looking good before this match. The match itself started patiently. Esad waited until the 70th minute to score his first goal. And he kept the lead until the end. In the second match, Esad opened a bit more brave, and he scored 3 goals quickly, putting himself in a great position before the next round.

In the second match played between Serbian player brstimir and Pecho, who both had a 1:0 lead from the previous week, brstimir still was a slight favorite seeing he took down the three-time champion Novo in the first round. In yesterday’s game, both players took one win for themselves, while the third and deciding one went into the hand of brstimir, who is showing great performance and becoming a huge favorite for winning the whole championship.

The third match of the day was played between our vice-champion from season 5 JasikFIFA and our newcomer Mrky2402. Mrky totally dominated in the first match showing no emotions on our screen whatsoever. And we know it was not because he is shy in front of the camera. It was because he knows what JasikFIFA is capable of and that he might come back into this match. The second match produced a ton of fun for our viewers. JasikFIFA took the lead 2 times, but it was not enough to get away from Mrky’s offensive abilities. It was extra time that decided the winner. Mrky scored in the 114th minute for his second win of the day. This puts him in a very good position for the next week, where he might be our first player in the final 4 if he manages to beat brstimir. Which isn’t going to be an easy task.

The last pair was Novo versus the rookie of the season Jero. Novo came in as a clear favorite, even though he lost in the first round, he has a lot more experience than his opponent. But as Jero didn’t have anything to lose in this game, he gave his all, and in the end, it was worth it. He managed to win against the three-time champion of A1AL, and show that Novo’s form is not as strong as before.

FIFA22 standings

Brstimir took down Novo in the first round of the group stage!

The group stage of the A1 Adria League finally started, and first on the schedule was FIFA22. The qualifiers were one of the most interesting and intense ever, and the group stage started in the same matter. At the very beginning, we have seen two of the favorites clash against each other, but the other three matches were exciting as well. This is also the first time this season that we could actually see the reactions of the players via their cameras on stream.

Brstimir takes the edge after day 1

Today we have seen four very interesting matches, and it all started with the battle between Petar “DrPecho” Susnjar who finished first after qualifiers, and the last place Enes “Encika” Hodzic. Even though Ecnika said he had already accomplished his goal, he showed today he isn’t done. In the end, the winner was expected, it was DrPecho who defeated his opponent with a 2:0 score.

One of the most anticipated matches was between the three-time champion Tarik “Novo” Novo and Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac. It was final before final, and their rivalry resurfaced tonight once again. Novo however couldn’t prove his legacy this time, and it was brstimir who, with patience and skill, secured a very important win today. With a 2:0 score, brstimir put himself in a great position after the first round of the group stage.

The third matchup of the day was between two Bosnian players, JasikFIFA and esad1memic. The first match was decided by the penalties. Penalties are Esad’s strong suit, but JasikFIFA probably knows him too well, and he easily read his cheeky panenka attempts. The second match gave us 7 fantastic goals to see. But it was Jasik who won 4-3. His passion and happiness were very visible on the screens, and he went 2:0 in the end.

Last but not least we have seen Marko “Mrky2402” Matancic take on rookie of the season Karlo “Jero” Jerkin. Mrky2402 came into this match a clear favorite and he justified this role. He was dominant against Jero, but seeing this was Jero’s first game on stream, he might need some time getting used to it. It’s only the first round, and nothing is over yet.

FIFA22 first round of group stage standings

The next round will be played next week, on May 13th.
