Clash of Leagues draws to a close; SK Gaming claim the crown!
After two convincing victories in the LAN stage of the tournament, the world’s top team, SK Gaming, has won €2,000 and the Clash of Leagues champions title.
It has certainly been a wild ride since the announcement of the Clash of Leagues was revealed two months ago. The €5,000-worth tournament brought together teams from 15 European countries and from five of Europe’s most prestigious esports leagues. Among them, two Adriatic teams set on a journey to reach the LAN finals and represent the region on the European scene. First, Omerta, our newly-appointed team after the combining of Noble Elite Red and BLK, played the group stage. They had their moments but didn’t prove good enough against the fierce competition that also competed during the seven playdays.
Noble Elite were next in line. Despite losing their semifinal match against BIG, DzonDzon & co. bounced back in the lower bracket and secured one of the four LAN spots along with SK Gaming, BIG, and Chernobyl Dribblers. All four teams traveled to Salzburg to clash one final time and decide who is the undisputed Brawl Stars champion of Central & East Europe. Noble Elite and SK Gaming played against each other in the first semifinal. Despite having a good recent form, the new Clash of Leagues champions were too big of a challenge for the regional team. Noble Elite ended the single-elimination bracket with a 0-3 loss. Next up were BIG and Chernobyl Dribblers, a match that saw the former advance ahead to make for an all-German final.
And what a final it was. Until the very last second, both teams stood equal in the arena and we witnessed a clash of epic proportions. In the end, however, only one team could lift the winner’s trophy and this time, that team was SK Gaming. Symantic, SkYRiiKZz, and Jeton are the Clash of Leagues champions. Congratulations to SK Gaming, all other teams and players, and everyone included in the Clash of Leagues.
Clash of Leagues’ €5,000 prize pool was split in the following manner:
1. SK Gaming – €2,000
2. BIG – €1,000
3-4. Chernobyl Dribblers – €500
3-4. Noble Elite – €500
The Brawl Stars action is over now, but not for long. Next Thursday, a new A1 Adria League season of Brawl Stars starts with six open qualifiers. Sign up and who knows, you may very well become the next regional champion!
