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 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

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.”

Novo and Esad are the last players who secured the top 4!

Last night the last matches of the FIFA22 group stage were played. We had two interesting matchups where four players fought for the last two spots in the A1 Adria League playoffs. In the end, our three-time champion Novo secured the spot in the final 4, as well as esad1memic.

Novo and Esad last to the finish line

Two more players last night secured the wins and will now join Mrky and Brstimir, who had already made it to the FIFA22 playoffs. The first to do so was Novo, who was expected to secure the next stage of A1AL earlier in the competition. As he struggled throughout the first two rounds of the group stage, it took him a while to reach the goal. His opponent was DrPecho who had the most number of points in the qualifiers. The first match led us to extra time where Novo kept his cool and scored a goal after his tiki-taka action right before the final whistle. Novo opened the second match with a quick goal, but Pecho bounced back and made sure they go to extra time again. In the end, penalties decided our 3rd player in the final 4. They both read each other shots pretty well, but the final result on penalties was 3-2 in Novo’s favor.

The last spot was to be secured by either Esad or Jero. As usual, Esad started with his attacking football right from the beginning, ending his attacks with his signature “chip shot” technique. In the second match, he was a way better player on the pitch, and he secured his 3-2 win with ease. He dominated the third match as well and keep his legacy of reaching the top 4 in every A1 Adria League season he played. With this win, Esad secured himself a chance to fight for 1750$ prize pool 2 weeks from now!

Mrky, Brstimir, Novo, and Esad are the top 4 FIFA22 players in the ninth season of the A1 Adria League! Can anyone dethrone Novo, or is he coming for the title once again?

FIFA22 standings

Pecho took down amke2001 in the final FIFA22 qualifier!

The most dramatic FIFA22 qualifier is completed. After four qualifiers the best eight FIFA22 players of this season will enter A1 Adria League and compete in the SWISS group stage. Pecho was the one who came out victorious after the last qualifier, which also provided him the first place overall.

Pecho bested the three-time champion

Knowing that a win today might put anyone in the top 8, slots were full once again! The fact that nobody managed to secure their spot until the last qualifier got every single player to shift into their upper gear, which ended in the most dramatic FIFA qualifier we have seen in recent years.

The surprise of the day was the relegation of the two experienced and well-known players Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac and Esad “esad1memic” Memic. They didn’t manage to get past round 3 today, but luckily they had already gathered enough points from previous qualifiers, to secure their spot in the group stage. The rookie Karlo “Jero” Jerkin went only one step more through the bracket and also secured himself some screen time in the next stage of A1AL. Another rookie from these qualifiers Zizou who came on top in the second qualifier, unfortunately, didn’t have enough points to secure the group stage.

Our three-time champion Tarik “amke2001” Novo took this qualifier more seriously than those before. He cruised through the bottom side of the bracket with ease. Just like it was expected from him from the start of the new season. His enemy in the final would be Petar “Pecho” Susnjar who dominated the other side of the bracket.

Even before the final started, both players had reached enough points to secure first and second place, so they focused on making a statement for the future. Amke2001 took down the first match, while Pecho clutched in the 120. minute in the second game of the finals. The third game was a dominant one for Pecho who didn’t let amke2001 score once, ending the match with an easy 2:0 win.

FIFA22 last qualifier standings

In the end, all the players who were expected to win and ensure their place in the group stage did. It was a very close and intense competition from the start, which can be seen in the final standings.

The players will take a short deserved break after such fierce battles, and prepare for the group stage which will commence on May 6th.


For the third time in a row, amke2001 is the A1AL champion!

The two-day-long FIFA playoffs culminated with an incredible final in which Tarik “amke2001” Novo became the three-time A1 Adria League champion.

During Season 8 of the A1 Adria League, the regional FIFA players had the chance to play against each other in two titles – FIFA21 and FIFA22. The four players that managed to adapt to the newest iteration of FIFA the best were the four players who advanced to the League. After a great SWISS stage Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac, Esad “esad1memic” Memić, Haris “Flow.edenn95” Lukomirak, and Tarik “amke2001” Novo spent the last two days competing in the double-elimination bracket.

Day 1 saw the first three matches played out. Namely, amke2001 and brstimir clashed in an intense match that went to all three rounds and saw the Bosnian player come out on top. After that, esad1memic breezed past Flow.edenn, which put the latter in the lower bracket alongside brstimir. The first day concluded with this elimination match in which Flow.edenn was outplayed by brstimir and eliminated from the tournament.

Today, amke2001 continued his winning streak. In the upper final, our back-to-back champion fought back versus esad1memic and sent him down to the lower half of the bracket. There, brstimir continued his mission of coming back from the brink of elimination and threw the Bosnian star out of the competition. Only two remained – amke2001 and brstimir. Brstimir had the chance to complete his comeback and finally dethrone amke2001, but the latter’s stellar performance in the grand finals secured him his third consecutive A1 Adria League title.

amke2001: “esad1memic played very well this season”

Despite the player having a busy schedule, we managed to catch up with Tarik “amke2001” Novo and do a short interview before the beginning of the fourth round. As he proved himself right and defeated Đorđe “JasikFifa” Cumbo in his last match, he survived to compete in the final round as well. Here is what the Bosnian FIFA star revealed for our portal:

How did the qualifiers for this season go? Did you notice any new players that played really well druing this stage?

From my point of view, Esad1memic played very well this season, his performance deserves to be mentioned.

Has the transition to FIFA22 been smooth for you? Are there any bigger differences compared to the previous game?

My progress this season is very good (2000 skill rating elite division) despite not having any FIFA points at the start of the game.

What were the things that brstimir did better than you in the second round?

Brstimir had a better team, that is the only reason he won that duel.

While brstimir and you are fierce rivals, your loss versus edenn95 came as a surprise to a lot of viewers. What made you lose this game in the third round?

edenn95 is a good player and it wasn’t surprising to me. It was a 50/50 match which could go in any direction.

Your next opponent is JasikFifa. What are your expectations for the match?

Against JasikFifa only victory comes into play for me.

Which four players do you think will make it through to the playoffs?

Top 4 players in my opinion: Brstimir, esad1memic, Hara and me.

esad1memic and edenn95 will be a part of the FIFA playoffs!

Two more FIFA players confirmed their playoffs spots today – Haris “edenn95” Lukomirak and Esad “esad1memic” Memić.

After a rough start in the first rounds, Tarik “amke2001” Novo looked more like his old self today. Đorđe “JasikFifa” Cumbo ended his A1 Adria League journey in the fourth round, as he was unable to play against amke2001’s FIFA squad. amke will get to play in the deciding fifth round as well, while JasikFifa has now officially joined Emir “Sulja13” Suljović in the eliminated players list. As Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac secured his playoffs spot in the third round, only two more matches were played out this playday.

One of those duels was between Harun “Hara” Parla and edenn95. A quick 2-0 victory for edenn95 confirmed his well-deserved spot in the top 4. For Hara, this result means that he will also play the fifth round alongside amke2001. Finally, to top off this day, Esad “esad1memic” Memić breezed past and eliminated Petar “DrPecho” Šušnjar from the eight A1 Adria League season. You can watch this playday below:
