Good Game and PORTUGAL join ONYX in the playoffs!

After a technical win and one great victory by PORTUGAL, we now know two more teams that will play the CS:GO playoffs besides the current champions, ONYX.

Good Game and Midnight were supposed to play a BO3 on Mirage, Vertigo, and Dust2, respectively. While Good Game certainly had the role of favorites, their victory came because of a different reason. Namely, Ivan “R1teks” Tokai had electricity problems and wasn’t able to continue playing after the first three rounds of Mirage were played out. His team couldn’t find a suitable substitute on time so the victory went the way of Good Game.

4glory and PORTUGAL played two intense maps that saw the latter outplay the Serbian squad and qualify for this season’s playoffs stage. The first map, Dust 2, went to overtime since the teams finished the regular part of the match 15-15. In the only overtime played, PORTUGAL managed to win the four required rounds and consecutively, the whole map. Next up was Nuke, which once again was played until the very end, but this time, PORTUGAL squeezed past some important rounds and won the map 16-14.

Cobalt Esports eliminate Onlinerss from the seventh season!

In the only match of this CS:GO Round 4 playday, we watched Cobalt Esports take on Onlinerss and eliminate them after only two maps.

This match started on Inferno. It was an easy game for Cobalt Esports who outplayed the current CS:GO BIH League champions with a dominant 16:7 final result. Right after Inferno, Train was the map that the audience was looking at. It was a much more exciting map than Inferno as both teams had their moments and showed some great tactics on the now-removed Active Duty map. However, Marko “Maki” Mijatović and Cobalt once again reigned supreme and closed out the BO3 with a 16:12 victory. This loss meant elimination for Onlinerss, while Cobalt Esports will fight for their last chance at making the playoffs in the next round.

ONYX qualify for this season’s CS:GO playoffs!

The end of the third round for CS:GO saw the reigning champions earn their spot in the playoffs in the derby versus 4glory.

Two matches marked the end of yet another CS:GO round in which we got our first qualified side. ONYX have been dealing with internal problems and recently did massive changes to their roster, but the squad managed to win their match against 4glory even with their old team. Vladyslav “⁠bondik⁠” Nechyporchuk and Dmitriy “⁠jR⁠” Chervak – two experienced veterans joined the team’s lineup today as a change to an international team was announced. As far as the match goes, it went  to three maps – 4glory got Inferno and ONYX responded with two wins on Train and Mirage, respectively.

Match two ended a bit quicker than the first one as only two maps were played out. Cobalt Esports and Good Game were a part of the 1-1 pool before the third round. While it wasn’t a decider match, this result managed to shape the incoming rounds in a different way. Namely, Good Game, who were considered favorites by most won the match after only two rounds and locked in their second victory in the seventh A1 Adria League season. Cobalt Esports, on the other side, now reside in the 1-2 pool together with Onlinerss and Midnight.

Fullshock are the first eliminated CS:GO team!

The first playday of Round 3 is done for CS:GO, and after the two matches concluded, it is now known that Fullshock are the first team to leave this season of the A1 Adria League.

Firstly, Midnight and PORTUGAL played their parts of the 1-1 team pool. We expected a great BO3 series and the match certainly didn’t fail to disappoint. Train went to overtime, and in the end, Midnight triumphed on it. Then, PORTUGAL overcame the map disadvantage and came back to win the entire game. Mirage went 16-11 in their favor and finally, Andrej “Necrogenes1s” Mancheski’s team closed out the match on Inferno (16-9).

Match 2 started out exactly the same. Onlinerss and Fullshock were both on the brink of elimination and they couldn’t let map one slip from either’s fingers – Train, Onlinerss’ map pick, went to overtime and finished in favor of their opponents, the Croatian Fullshock squad. In the end, the BIH League Season 3 champions came back and eliminated Fullshock.

ONYX and 4glory are a win away from the playoffs!

The final playday of the second CS:GO round ended with three matches and three new winners – ONYX, Midnight, and 4glory.

Due to ONYX rescheduling their match from the first Round 2 playday, this Sunday featured three CS:GO matches. PORTUGAL and ONYX started the CS:GO marathon on Train where the current champions were able to secure an easy 16:08 win. PORTUGAL’s map pick, Dust 2, was a different story, but with the same ending. Both teams showed some great Counter-Strike, and the map went to overtime. ONYX didn’t let the pressure get to them and were able to close out the map and the match in the first overtime.

Right after the first match came to an end, Midnight and Onlinerss entered the server to fight for their first win. The first two maps were the same as in the previous match, with Onlinerss winning Train. Jasin “connex” Memedi carried his team Midnight through Dust 2 with an amazing performance with the AWP. The decider was Mirage which was ended after 29 rounds. Midnight were the team that came out as the winners in the very end and sent Onlinerss to the bottom of the scoreboard.

4glory and Good Game played a marathon on their own. 4glory won Good Game’s map pick, Mirage, with a 16:07 end result, but the match got heated in the next maps. The Macedonian squad fought very hard and finally won Train with a 16:13 score, sending the match to the decider, Nuke. Nuke went to all 30 rounds and was intense until the very last minute. The teams were constantly changing the lead, but in the end, Luka “c0llins” Živanović and 4glory were the team that won the 16th regulation round.
