Metamoon are your A1 Adria League LoL champions!

In the final two matches of this season, Metamoon came out on top and outplayed both 49% winrate and Harmony to win the main prize.

As the double-elimination League of Legends bracket has been slowly progressing throughout the season, only two matches remained for today. The matches in question were the lower-bracket final and of course, the grand finals. Since 49% winrate outplayed Clouded Leopards in the previous round, they were set to challenge Metamoon for a spot in the finals. 49% winrate didn’t weren’t in a good form today, so Metamoon had an easy time in the lower-bracket finals (2-0).

This win put Harmony and Metamoon in the final match. The two teams played each other a week ago when the Macedonian side was better in the upper-bracket finals. This time, however, Metamoon was clearly the better team. Harmony couldn’t win a single game, and the result was 3-1 only because they came from the upper bracket. After losing to Split Raiders in the last season, this is the second consecutive season that Harmony finish the season in second place. We are happy to conclude one more League of Legends tournament for this year. Congratulations to every team that participated and especially to Metamoon, who are your A1 Adria League LoL champions!

League of Legends Playoffs

These are the top 4 League of Legends teams for the season:

1. Metamoon – €1600
2. Harmony – €1200
3. 49% winrate – €800
4. Clouded Leopards – €400

Harmony enter the League of Legends grand finals!

The upper bracket final match saw Harmony outplay Metamoon and become the first team in the grand finals.

While our other three games had their respective SWISS stages decide the playoffs participants, after the qualifiers, League of Legends jumped straight into the playoffs. With a slower tempo, the eight teams have been playing the double-elimination bracket during the regular season, and now they are ready for the final stage.

We knew the top 3 teams before this playday. However, one more match was needed before the final playday. It was the upper bracket final duel between Harmony and Metamoon. The former finished Season 7 in second place and are now eager to take the title. Ghisou’s squad were more than dominant in the first game and won that match with ease. Metamoon weren’t ready to give up just yet and struck back on the second match. In the end, Harmony took them down and secured their spot in the grand finals. The League of Legends final matches will be played next Saturday. We will watch two matches – the lower bracket final as well as the grand finals.

 

49% winrate are the first lower-bracket finalists!

A playday dedicated to the lower-bracket saw 49% winrate outplay Vinland and Clouded Leopards and advance to the lower finals.

While the League of Legends scene was focused on the Worlds 2021 finals where EDward Gaming defeated DAMWON, the regional teams had a great day as well. Clouded Leopards faced Fantastic Esports in one of the two lower-bracket quarterfinals. Our viewers had the chance to watch three action-packed matches in which Clouded Leopards proved to be the dominant side and eliminated their opponents from the tournament.

Off-stream, 49% winrate and Vinland Esports played the second match of this round. As 49% winrate was far better than the latter team today, the match concluded after only two games. The team then went on to challenge Clouded Leopards in the next match. Once again, they impressed everyone and smashed CL 2-0 to finally reach the lower-bracket finals. There, the loser of the match between Metamoon and Harmony will be their next opponent.

 

Lupus and Banished Esports are eliminated from the LOL playoffs!

 

We will not be seeing Lupus and Banished Esports anymore this season as they were eliminated in today’s lower bracket matches.

Two matches were played simultaneously in the lower bracket of this season’s playoffs. As it ended after only two games, Fantastic Esports and Banished Esports concluded their match first. It was Fantastic that came out as the winners and eliminated Banished from the eighth season. A bit after them, the second lower bracket Round 1 match also came to an end. This time, the team that saved itself from elimination was Vinland Esports, while their opponents, Lupus, had to say their goodbyes to the A1 Adria League.

In the meantime, the upper bracket semifinals were also underway. The two teams that qualified for the league together in Qualifier #2, Harmony and 49% winrate, clashed spears in the first of two semifinal matches that took place today. Harmony managed to defeat 49% winrate in the third game of the BO3 match and became the first upper bracket finalist of this playoffs stage. The final match of the day saw Metamoon defeat Clouded Leopards and secure a match versus Harmony in the upper bracket finals.

 

Four teams qualify for the League of Legends semifinals!

After four qualifying cups, today we marked the beginning of the League of Legends regional playoffs stage!

The first of the two streamed matches for today saw Clouded Leopards challenge Lupus eSports in a BO3 duel. Lupus eSports were the first team to qualify for the league, and they were also the first team to be sent to the lower bracket. A bit later, Metamoon managed to defeat Vinland Esports in a match that was available for everyone to watch on our streaming channels. In our next playday, Metamoon and Clouded Leopards will clash to decide one of the two winners’ bracket finalists of this season.

49% winrate and Fantastic Esports also played a tough match. Their match wasn’t streamed on our channels. After two intense nail-biters, 49% winrate sent Fantastic Esports to the losers’ bracket in the very first round. Our second off-stream match was between Harmony and Banished Esports. The Macedonian players had the same success as 49% winrate and managed to close out the quarterfinal duel in their favor without much trouble. With these two matches being concluded, we now know the second upper bracket semifinal – Harmony vs. 49% winrate.

The League of Legends quarterfinal matches ended as follows:

Ghisou, Harmony: “Winning the title will be our main goal”

The Macedonian squad Harmony was one of the first four teams to qualify for the A1 Adria League. As we are approaching the beginning of the playoffs, we took the time to contact the team’s captain, Ghisou, and talk about the qualifiers and the upcoming season.

First of all, congratulations on qualifying for this A1 Adria League season. Let’s go back to the first qualifier. How did the match against Metamoon go and what were the main mistakes that caused you to lose this deciding match?

Thank you, the match we played against Metamoon in the first qualifier was not the best for us, we made a lot of individual mistakes in the games we lost and maybe our biggest mistake was the draft we had in those games which made us lose the series 2-1.

You managed to qualify in the second qualifier. How did your game improve this time around? How good was the competition? Was the bracket easier than in the first qualifier or was your team in better form?

In the second qualifier we made a lot better drafts and less mistakes both as individuals and as a team which helped us qualify. About the competition and the bracket, I would say that they were around on the same level as the first qualifier.

Do you prefer this season’s format, which has regional qualifiers, or the one that we used in the previous season, with the national qualifying phase? Why?

I can say that this format is probably better since it allows teams from all countries of this region to try their luck to qualify, while on the other hand the format from the last season was strict on how many teams needed to be registered in the national qualifier in order for a team from that country to be able to compete.

You reached the grand finals in Season 7. Can you repeat the success in this season and even win the title? What are your expectations as a team?

Yes, we managed to reach the finals in Season 7, but we don’t see our grind stopping there. We will try to repeat the success from last season and try to improve it in this season by winning the title as that will be our main goal.

The League of Legends qualifying phase is still going on and our next cup will be played on Saturday. SIGN UP and become one of the next two teams to join the 4.000€ worth eighth season.

Harmony and 49% winrate join the qualified LoL teams!

Harmony and 49% winrate managed to triumph in the qualifiers and join Lupus eSports and Metamoon in the upcoming LoL season.

Our second League of Legends qualifier started in the Round of 16. Inferal eSports managed to get a win over Legends, while Harmony outplayed Darkic Narkic. A bit lower in the bracket, Kako god oces scored two victories versus Celijka Mitoza and Water Phoenix Esports and reached the semifinals. There, their final opponents before reaching the A1 Adria League were Harmony. Even though Kako god oces proved to be a challenge for Harmony, the team successfully advanced to the league.

Besides Harmony, our second team to qualify for the eighth season were 49% winrate. A famous name in the region, 49% winrate achieved today’s success at the cost of teams such as Reject, 28 US Marines, and Clouded Leopards Prime. CLP couldn’t defeat 49% winrate but still had a good playday. Names such as Infamous and Delusional randoms lost to them, but the last obstacle was too much for the team. After Lupus and Metamoon also qualified in the first cup, we now have four of the eight required teams to begin our group stage.

Two chances remain for you to become a part of this adventure. Make sure to click HERE to learn more about this season’s format and SIGN UP for the remaining two qualifiers.

This week in A1AL: Brawl Stars is nearing the group stage!

Since FIFA finished its qualifying phase last week, this week of A1 Adria League will be dedicated to Brawl Stars, CS:GO, and League of Legends.

Brawl Stars

FIFA’s qualifiers came to an end and Brawl Stars is quickly catching up. Now is your last chance to sign up and compete for a spot in the Brawl Stars group stage. Since they started participating in this season’s qualifiers, Salada de Frutas have won every single one of them and are now comfortably in the lead with 400 points. The second-placed team has half as much, and that team is Omert4. A lot can change in this sixth qualifier, as the lower-ranked teams are separated by a small margin of points. When we announce the eight qualified teams, the SWISS stage will commence.

Until then, SIGN UP for the sixth qualifier, or click HERE to read everything you need to know about this season of Brawl Stars. You can also check the current Brawl Stars standings.

League of Legends

Lupus eSports and Metamoon managed to outplay their opponents in the single-elimination qualifier and become the first two teams in this A1 Adria League season. The cup was filled with great teams from all over the region. Names like Harmony and Split Raiders, who also took part in the seventh season, competed in this qualifier but missed the chance to qualify. On Saturday, you can also try your best to compete for the €4.000 prize pool. Three qualifiers remain, and six spots are yet to be filled out.

CS:GO

Another CS:GO playday is behind us, and what a playday it was. Even though Young Glorians put up a great fight, Marten Gaming comfortably closed out the game 2-0. The real spectacle happened between PORTUGAL and 4glory, with the former winning the BO3 series on Overpass, probably the least played map in the league. Two awesome duels are scheduled to be played on Sunday. JESTE will face the Albanian team SKUAK, while iNation and BLUEJAYS will clash spears in the second series of the day.

This week, we decided to contact Kujtim “gulito” Durmishi, the new SKUAK IGL. gulito talked about his experience in the A1 Adria League as well as the first round of the SWISS stage:

I’ve been playing A1 Adria League for around 3 years, I feel bad that I couldn’t enjoy any trophy for it , but I gained great experience during that time that I participated in A1 Adria League. Anyway we’re still in the tournament with SKUAK and we’ll try our best to make it out to playoffs first and then win it all the way.

About match vs JESTE, I’m thinking that one will be kinda hard, but with the way practice is going for us, it is gonna be a win, they’re strong opponents but we gonna try our best. About the Round 1 match vs iNation we had so many individual mistakes, but we have worked around that and we have prepared so that mistakes like that they don’t happen again, and for the limited time we have had for practice, that’s perfect.

Lupus eSports and Metamoon are our first two LoL teams!

Lupus eSports and Metamoon outplayed their opponents and became the first two squads in our second League of Legends season for this year.

The qualifying cycle for League of Legends began today. A total of 16 teams met in a single-elimination bracket to fight for the two available spots in the league. After defeating Golden Killer 33 in the first round, Lupus eSports showed that they are better than Taihaku as well and advanced to the semifinals. The first semifinal spot in the upper half of the bracket went ot Metamoon who reached this stage over Clouded Leopards Prime and CATCH THE PIGEON. Their opponents were Harmony, a team that eliminated Split Raiders in the initial round of this qualifier. The other semifinal match was played out between Lupus eSports and Gazda Cam’s party.

Both decider matches were intense duels that saw the best teams win. After two games, Metamoon and Harmony were ready to decide the winner of this semifinal match. That title went to Metamoon, who fought greatly and deservedly snapped the spot. Actually, the second semifinal came to an end first. Lupus eSports and Gazda Cam’s party also played all three games in the semifinals, but Lupus eSports managed to secure their victory a bit earlier than Metamoon. With these matches concluding, we got our two teams in the league. Congratulations Lupus eSports and Metamoon!
