The A1 Adria League‘s ninth-season winnersSalada de Frutas won second place in the pan-European competition Clash of Leagues in Salzburg! Andrey, DzonDzon, and Lavvek bettered their result from the last season when they finished Top 4.
Clash of Leagues finals in Salzburg
The Clash of Leagues finals at LEVEL UP – The Gaming Festival in Salzburg saw the winners of A1 Adria League, Swisscom Hero League, and A1 eSports League battle it out for the trophy. The format was three teams round-robin for a total prize pool of 3000€.
The draw went in the way of opponents which meant Salada de Frutas had to play the first two opening matches. In their first match against Aurora Esports, the winners of the Austrian A1 eSports League they showcased some resistance and played well but didn’t manage to close it out. In the end, they lost 3-0, altho the result doesn’t tell the full story of how that match-up played out.
Lavvek and co. stayed on stage for their second match. The Swisscom Hero League’s winners mYinsanity stepped on stage. In the first map, Salada de Frutas had everything they needed to take the win but in the end, mYinsanity managed to clutch it out. Salada de Frutas then showed great mental fortitude and won the remaining of maps and games. Once Aurora Esports defeated mYinsanity, Salada de Frutas secured second place.
Aurora Esports (1600€)
Salada de Frutas (800€)

Salada de Frutas successfully defended the Brawl Stars title in the ninth A1 Adria League season. Without any trouble, they managed to reach the finals, defeat DOGS, and take their second consecutive title. We talked with the captain of the team DzonDzon about the season, Clash of Leagues, their plans, and more.
Congratulations on winning the title. How does it feel to be at the top of the regional Brawl Stars scene?
Firstly I would like to thank everyone for congratulating us. The feeling is great, it isn’t a small thing to be the best team in the region.
You finished the group stage, playoff, and the complete tournament without much trouble. In the playoffs, you didn’t lose a single match. What affected such good performance of the team?
My personal opinion is that what influenced this performance is mostly knowledge about the draft. At the moment with six bans, if you do a good draft, that’s probably set in your favor.
What is your opinion about this year’s competition? Did someone at any point in the playoff come close to surprising you and would you single out some team as your hardest opponent?
As I mentioned before, the competition this year was stronger than ever. Each team in the playoff was very good, but as I have said the lack of draft knowledge cost them the win against us. As the hardest opponent, I would single out DOGS. The guys from DOGS really made a noticeable improvement since last year.
You had successfully defended the title this season. Which one was harder to win, the eighth or this, the ninth season of the A1 Adria League, and why?
The eighth season was harder to win that’s for sure. Last season in the finals we were losing with a 1:2 score, our opponents were at match point, but we managed to reverse sweep and win the whole thing. So in my opinion that was the hardest and the most interesting final so far.
You don’t have much time to rest and gather impressions, seeing that the next month Clash of Leagues in Salzburg is starting. Have you already prepared for it?
We are always ready for new tournaments, especially if they involve a LAN event.
Last year you lost in the semifinals and you were really close to winning the tournament. What are your expectations and plans for the upcoming Clash of Leagues?
Yes, last year we weren’t lucky, because the first match that we played in Salzburg was against SK Gaming, and it is a known fact that SK was the best team in the EU, maybe even in the world. This year we are going there to lift the trophy.
Do you intend to be a part of the tenth A1AL season as well and once again try to defend the title?
Of course, we are planning to sign up for the tenth season, and our plans are to win it again. Firstly though we would like to win Clash of Leagues, and then we are going to focus on the new A1AL season.

The ninth season of the A1 Adria League is coming to an end, and you can follow the end of the season on our Twitch and Youtube channel. The Brawl Stars competition in A1AL has gotten its champion for this season. Salada de Frutas is again the champion, and they will take home the 1100€ prize!
Salada without any trouble takes the title
DzonDzon and his team in this tournament showed from start to finish an impeccable performance. None of the teams stood close to them, and in the end, they won the whole thing as expected.
In the semifinals, the champion played against DOGS, who had no chance of winning. They stomped DOGS without giving them an opportunity to fight back. In the other semifinal, Big F was against team Jazavci. The match between these two teams was, to say the least, intense. They both showed great performance until Big F lost the momentum, and that gave their opponents the only chance they needed to finish the game in their favor. Jazavci then went on to fight Salada in the upper bracket final.
On the other side of the bracket, the lower one, DOGS were now fighting to stay in the playoffs against Big F. DOGS came out victorious and Big F ended the competition in fourth place. As Salada once again dominated their opponents and took down Jazavci without any trouble, team Jazavci fell down in the lower bracket too. DOGS were once again the victors in the lower bracket where they took down Jazavci and earned another chance to take revenge over Salada de Frutas in the grand finals.
In the grand finals, we have seen Salada again sweep DOGS with the result of 3:0, and for that, they needed only 21 minutes. This team didn’t lose a single game in the playoffs, and with the perfect 9:0 result defended the title.
Salada de Frutas – 1100€
DOGS – 600€
Jazavci – 300€

The qualifiers for Brawl Stars in season nine of A1 Adria League have already started. We talked with last year’s champions of Brawl Stars, Flow. They are now called Zidari, and the current champions Andrey and DzonDzon told us more about their experience in A1AL and Clash of Leagues, as well as their expectations for the ninth season.
You were big favorites last year. What influenced such good performance of the team?
DzonDzon: There are many reasons for it, but we as a team have been playing together for 3 years, and we have good synergy. Andreyy and me are in the top of European Brawl Stars tournaments so you could say we have a lot of experience.
How did it feel like to play regional Brawl Stars competition of this caliber?
Andrey: The feeling is great, especially since we are at the top of the region. We also look forward to any new tournaments.
DzonDzon: Its a great feeling since this league isnt a small one, and being the best in the region is a big deal.
This year we are adding three additional games. What do you think about these changes?
DzonDzon: The change is a great idea because our region has a lot of talented players who play in the best teams in the world, so this is their chance to prove themselves and maybe enter the world stage.
Andrey: I think that for sure we should give chance to new games and new players to show what they can do.
What was your experience from the Pan-European tournament Clash of Leagues in Salzburg?
Andrey: COL (Clash of Leagues) was one of the best experiences of my life. It’s a truly special feeling to get up on stage in front of hundreds of people and represent your team.
Now, after some time has passed, what was your impression of Clash of Leagues, the Pan-European Brawl Stars tournament?
DzonDzon: A great tournament with the best European teams cant be bad. We hope that COL will be held this year too.
Andrey: The experience was great, it’s just too bad that neither DzonDzon nor Lavvek could be with us there. But I’ll do my best to be a part of the LAN again this year.
Are you also going to participate in the ninth season of the A1 Adria League, and if yes what are your expectations for the upcoming season?
DzonDzon: Of course, we will participate this season, we are more ready than ever so our expectations are high, which is of course first place.
Andrey: We believe we are going to take the first place because we have an advantage when it comes to new drafting in competitive. I believe that in this aspect we have more knowledge and more experience than others.

The ninth season of the A1 Adria League has officially started. The first open qualifiers for the mobile game Brawl Stars are over. We have seen a lot of teams sign up for the qualifiers and their chance to become the best in the region.
As we mentioned already, Brawl Stars this year will have four open qualifiers, where the best 16 teams will be scored. Eight teams with the highest number of points will advance to the group stage. These qualifiers will be played on FACEIT platforms.
Great start for team Jazavci and Dogs
Some teams had a great start to the A1 Adria League while others struggled to get points. However, we have seen great, intense matches in the first open qualifiers from this year’s Brawlers. We have seen more than 30 teams compete for the most points in the first qualifier for Brawl Stars which is 100 points.
Many familiar faces are again participating in A1AL. Many familiar teams from the region that we have seen in the past in our own A1 Adria League are back for more. The first playday was intense and we have seen a couple of surprises. Last year’s Brawl Stars champions Lavvek, DzonDzon, Andrey who had been competing under the Flow banner and are now called Zidari, have failed to qualify for the semifinals. They were eliminated in the quarterfinals by Dogs who advanced to the finals of this first qualifier. The second finalist were Jazavci, who made their way to the top.
The grand final ended in the favor of team Jazavci who have shown great performance and skill. Of course, team Dogs also sits at a great position with 70 points, and they will have an easier path to the group stage.
Teams that reached the quarterfinals and further will have an advantage in the next qualifier and it’s a nice start to the season.
Our next Brawl Stars qualifiers will be played next Thursday, April 7th, and you can register for it HERE!
While the Brawl Stars qualifiers for this week are finished, tomorrow we expect a tense fight between FIFA22 players in the first qualifiers of this PlayStation game.

Esports was at the beginning limited only to personal computers. With the development of technology, it became possible to compete on consoles, and later on smartphones too. It is exactly the smartphones that in recent years have been moving the boundaries of esports.
Regardless of which research you take into account, gaming on smartphones and tablets, popularly called mobile gaming, is a segment that should grow the fastest. Faster than gaming on personal computers and gaming consoles. Everyone who owns a smartphone is a potential “gamer”. A lot of people today play on their phones and unintentionally make the gamer’s statistics. They play games while traveling or while taking a break from daily activities. Among so many players there are those who compete in mobile games.
This type of gamer exists in our region too and A1 Adria League is showing that for seasons including at least one mobile game in its tournament. Earlier it was the popular game Clash Royale, and in the eighth season, which was held last year, all the lights of mobile gaming were on Brawl Stars.
Last summer it was the best domestic Brawl Stars players such as Lavvek, Adry, Andrey, and DzonDzon who represented the region in the Clash of Leagues tournament in Salzburg, in which the best players from five Central European Leagues and regional A1 Adria League participate.
Discussions about whether esports on mobile devices are real esports are long over. Smartphones and tablets are today technically so developed that they can support more demanding games too. Big developers and video game publishers have in mind the potential that mobile gaming has. Riot Games studio which made the ultra-popular League of Legends and VALORANT, also published a mobile version of the most popular MOBA game: League of Legends: Wild Rift. Call of Duty mobile has been available for a while now for everyone who prefers shooting on mobile platforms.
How can mobile esports help women enter esports?
With the growth of esports, the age boundaries of entering the world of competitive gaming are being moved. Regardless of the game, a lot of them are adapted to the youngest players, who very intuitively, using touchscreen controls can experience competitive gaming. 20 or more years ago to achieve this you needed to have some technical knowledge as well as a very expensive, and sometimes, unavailable device.
Of course, some of them will in the future play on gaming consoles and personal computers, but will at that point already have experienced something that wasn’t available to the Millenials, not to mention older generations. Of course, mobile esports isn’t only meant for younger players.
Female players still make up a very small percentage of active participants in esports. The most popular tournament for girls is the Women Star League Invitational in-game Mobile Legends: Bang Bang if we look at data on an active number of audience and the number of watched hours.
One of the ways in which we could include more females in the world of esports is exactly mobile esports. You wouldn’t need any special equipment for it, and the community isn’t as defined and exclusive as those when gaming on PCs or consoles.
However, for mobile esports or any kind of mobile gaming, it’s important to have a smartphone. That’s how the best regional Brawl Stars players in the grand finale of Clash of Leagues in LEVEL Up Arena in Salzburg competed on Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G devices which at least gave them an even chance with the best players of other countries.
When we talk about MOBA or similar games, which are more demanding to both players and devices, it’s important to have a fast response speed so you can run the game without any problems. This was exactly what Xiaomi provided to our guys. What kind of device is needed for the serious competition will depend on the game, and of course on the player. Even the smallest advantage in performance in crucial moments can be decisive.
Mobile gaming and mobile esports are already a part of the gaming industry or better esports industry. It will surely grow in the future, as we are even now raising new generations of gamers, professional or not.
