This week in A1AL: SIGN UP for the League of Legends qualifier!

CS:GO enters Round 2, Brawl Stars and FIFA are close to ending the qualifying phase, and League of Legends is finally ready. SIGN UP and become the new LoL champions.

Brawl Stars

With two qualifiers left until the beginning of the group stage, Salada de Frutas have a firm lead over the competition. Three wins in a row secured them 300 points and a spot on the very top of the leaderboard. Next to them are Winx Club with 170, while Omert4 are placed third with 150 points next to their name. Teams like BalkanTalents and Pop Off are a part of the top 8 leaderboard with 70 points, which means that every team still has a chance to qualify for the league. All you need are two good performances in the upcoming qualifiers.

The last FIFA qualifier of this season and this year is ahead of us. Tarik “amke2001” Novo has been brilliant during the entire qualifying process and is now leading the table with 270 points. The rest of the players are behind by at least 90 points. Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac (180) and Harun “Hara” Parla (160) are behind amke2001, with Esad “esad1memic” Memić closing in behind them with his 140 points. The eighth place is occupied by Petar “DrPecho” Šušnjar. One more qualifier means one more chance for everyone in the region.

League of Legends

The wait is OVER! We are excited to announce the first of four League of Legends qualifiers for A1 Adria League S8. Saturday (25.09.2021) will be the day when we will watch teams from all over the region battle it out for the first two spots in the League. The main difference from Season 7 is that we have swapped the national qualifier with regional ones and will advance to the playoffs right after the conclusion of the four qualifiers. During the qualifiers, the teams will play a single-elimination BO1 bracket except for the deciding matches that will be played in a BO3 format.

CS:GO

On Sunday, the first SWISS round for this season came to an end. PORTUGAL and BLUEJAYS secured victories against their opponents and joined iNation and 4glory in the winners’ half of the bracket. On the other side, Marten Gaming and JESTE along with Young Glorians and SKUAK. These latter four teams will be looking to improve their Round 1 results in the second round, and this Sunday, we will watch the following two matchups:

26.09.2021 – SWISS Round 2-1

Marten Gaming vs.  Young Glorians
rs 4glory vs. PORTUGAL

The Macedonian teams begin the season with a win!

PORTUGAL and BLUEJAYS have outplayed Marten Gaming and JESTE, respectively, in our second Round 1 playday.

Our first match was a real spectacle. Rescheduled to 13:00 as Marten Gaming had the finals of the CS:GO BIH League later today, PORTUGAL vs. Marten Gaming started off the day with a blast. Anel “NENO” Ceković and his team dominated Marten in the first half of Mirage, Marten’s map pick, having a nine-round streak before their opponents could win one round. The half ended 11-4 in favor of PORTUGAL, but what happened next was miraculous. An absolutely perfect T side from  Petar “HOLMES” Dimitrijević’s new team secured them every single round of the second half, along with the entire map (16-11).

On Vertigo, PORTUGAL was the team that managed to do a comeback, although this one was of smaller proportions. After losing the first stages of the game 5-1, the Macedonian team won the half 9-6. Marten took the lead on the T side again, but PORTUGAL weren’t ready to lose yet another lead. They gave it their best and closed off Vertigo 16-14. Just like their T side on Mirage, PORTUGAL’s Nuke T side was brilliant. Dejan “Katalic” Koprivica & co. won only four rounds on their CT side. Marten had a good run in the second half, but Alexander “br0” Bro successfully lead his team to victory in the final map.

Our second duel of the day wasn’t short of surprises either. We watched Vertigo once again, but the course of this match was vastly different than the previous one. Where both teams dominated halves in our first match, this time, both JESTE and BLUEJAYS kept winning rounds and kept the game tied the entire time. In the end, we went to overtime and Jane “aidKiT” Apostoloski and BLUEJAYS won Vertigo. Inferno was no different. BLUEJAYS reached 15 first but were unable to finish the game in regulation. We watched overtime again, and this time, the winning team was JESTE.

The final map of the day was Mirage. Even though both teams were exhausted from the previous two maps, we still watched a great game. We watched overtime for the third time, with BLUEJAYS taking the final map in their favor. You can watch today’s playday below:

 

This week in A1AL: More cups, more points, more games!

CS:GO’s first SWISS round is coming to an end, and in the meantime, FIFA and Brawl Stars will crown their fourth qualifier’s winners this week.

Brawl Stars

We have a slight map change for this week of Brawl Stars. Instead of Brawl Ball, our regional squads will be playing Bounty. Last week, Salada de Frutas claimed first place after their second consecutive win for this season. Winx Club are currently second with 150 points, and Omert4 are trailing behind by only 10 points. It has been a whole month since the qualifiers started, and we are slowly starting to round up the teams that will participate in this season’s SWISS stage. This week, one Brawl Stars player talked about the current season and his expectations for the League. This is what Protić from Omert4 had to say:

“Hello, I am protić from team Omerta. I am playing together with Bogdan and Brankec. We are currently third which has been good enough so far, but we are sure that we could have done better because we lost important matches to small mistakes. We could maybe have been first or second, but we are satisfied with our placement seeing as the competition is much tougher in this season and a lot of good new teams appeared. Of course, our biggest rivals for the season are Salada de Frutas and Winx Club, and I would also add Lightning Strike here. They started playing together this season and they are already looking great. They are currently placed fourth and they are really close to the other teams.

As far as my expectations are concerned, if we continue with this form, I believe that we will reach the very final stages of the tournament – at least top 4. After that, nothing is certain, as all teams there will be very good and there will be a number of intense matches that could easily end both ways. With enough practice and preparations, I am sure that we could reach the finals and maybe even win the whole league. I just want to say that I am eagerly awaiting the next qualifiers and I wish good luck to all the other teams!”

FIFA

There are only two FIFA qualifiers remaining. After the qualifying phase comes to an end, the best eight players will play a SWISS group stage, but in the new edition of the franchise, FIFA22. Our reigning champion, Tarik “amke2001” Novo continued with his great performance in the third qualifier where he defeated Esad “esad1memic” Memić in the grand finals. The latter played is currently ranked second, together with Đorđe “JasikFIFA” Cumbo (both players have 130 points). Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac and Harun “Hara” Parla are close to the aforementioned players and they are looking to close the difference in the upcoming qualifier.

CS:GO

iNation, SKUAK, 4glory, and Young Glorians. Those are the names of the four teams that played the very first CS:GO playday for this eighth season of Counter-Strike. The iNation squad led by Ivan “choiv7” Živković faced Bledar “BledarD” Dula & SKUAK in a fierce BO3 which saw the former came out as winners after two maps. The same thing happened in 4glory’s match, but with much more difficulties. Namely, Young Glorians nearly upset 4glory on two occasions, taking the game to overtime both times. In the end, 4glory’s experience reigned supreme and they closed out the match in their favor. This week, the first SWISS round continues. PORTUGAL is going to challenge Marten Gaming, while BLUEJAYS will play versus JESTE.

This week in A1AL: Last chance to qualify for the CS:GO league!

This week in A1 Adria League, the Brawl Stars and FIFA competitors will keep earning points, while the CS:GO teams will get their last chance to qualify for the league.

Brawl Stars

Of all the teams that played in our first Brawl Stars qualifier, Omert4 ruled the Challengermode tournament. Their final opponents were Winx Club, another top team that reached the finals with convincing wins against their enemies. There were teams such as Lightning Strike and Ez Clappers who got to the semifinals but couldn’t advance further, and four more teams that earned 20 points each. The first of six Brawl Stars qualifiers is over, and now this Thursday, the teams will get another chance to earn valuable points.

FIFA21

With one less qualifier than Brawl Stars, the points the players have earned in the first FIFA cup are even more valuable. Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac took the champion’s title this time. Right behind him in the FIFA points race is last season’s winner, Tarik “amke2001” Novo. With players such as Harun “Hara” Parla and Esad “esad1memic”  Memić occupying the third and fourth spots, respectively, this is sure looking to be an amazing season. The second of five qualifiers will be played out this Saturday, what are you waiting for?

CS:GO

Both Saturday and Sunday saw the best teams from the region face-off in a battle for the three spots that the first qualifier offered them. From the teams that signed up to play the open qualifier, eight secured their spots in the next phase. What followed was a single-elimination bracket that decided the three qualified sides. Those teams were Anlaki, Marten Gaming and JESTE. We are eagerly waiting to see them compete in the league, and we are eagerly waiting to see you try to qualify as well.

Anlaki, Marten Gaming, and JESTE qualify for the A1 Adria League!

After our first open qualifier concluded yesterday, today, eight teams fought for three spots in the CS:GO A1 Adria League.

An interesting mix of upcoming and experienced teams signed up for the first of two open qualifiers we are hosting for this season. The best eight teams were supposed to go to the closed qualifier and that’s why the most important matches were those in the Round of 16. VeryBadPlayers were actually very good players as they managed to outplay Dimitar “raniiiN” Avramovski and Donda. Next up, a regional team consisting of players such as Krunoslav “Salted” Katalinić and one of Season 7’s winners, Petar “HOLMES” Dimitrijević, defeated 200DINPEEK and secured the closed qualifiers.

Anlaki are one of the squads that have improved the most during the summer. Today, they kept up with their great recent performances and become one of the eight qualified teams, together with stich and Aimabazi who did so over TENACITYgg. The other half of the matches had some interesting results. Nemanja “nEMANHA” Đukić and 1tap upset Young Glorians, while Aleksandar “HLEB” Todorović’s JESTE was better than NoTalents. Last but not least, Marten Gaming and Immortal Balkans bested 4glory Youngest and KS Geto, respectively.

CS:GO Open Qualifier #1

Today, starting at 12 o’clock, Anlaki and seven other teams met in a single-elimination bracket to decide the three sides that could join the invited teams in the eighth season. Despite their good result in the open qualifier, 1tap were powerless against Anlaki. The same can be said for Aimabazi who lost to JESTE in their quarterfinal match. Marten Gaming outplayed Immortal Balkans, and for the last match of this stage, CKUKO played better than VeryBadPLayers and concluded the quarterfinals.

Next up were the two semis. As the match between CKUKO and VeryBadPlayers lasted longer than the other three, the second semifinal started a bit later. In the meantime, Anlaki and JESTE faced off in their duel to decide the first qualified team. In the end, that team was Anlaki, while JESTE were relegated to the third-place decider. Marten Gaming came out as the winners of the second semifinal at the expense of CKUKO. The third League spot went to JESTE since they convincingly won the third-place decider.

The next and also last CS:GO qualifier will be played on Saturday. So hurry up, assemble your team and SIGN UP.

Anlaki, Marten, JESTE

GOOD IS NOT ENOUGH; beat the best in the 8th season of A1 Adria League!

The summer break is slowly coming to an end which means that it is time to announce the new season of the A1 Adria League. Players from all over the region have had plenty of time to improve their skills, work on teamplay, fix their previous mistakes, and prepare for the beginning of Season 8. The game roster remains the same – CS:GO, League of Legends, Brawl Stars, and FIFA will be available to the regional esport athletes in the following months, whether to participate in the league or just follow the action. A1 Adria League is slowly becoming a pillar of the regional Brawl Stars scene, while FIFA is bigger than ever. CS:GO keeps impressing us time and time again and will be featured for the eighth time this season, while League of Legends’ re-introduction to the A1 Adria League made us remember older memories and eagerly expect the upcoming two seasons.

Dimitrije “DiMKE” Veljković has become the undisputed regional CS:GO champion for the fourth time in a row. Split Raiders were on another level and dominated the competition in League of Legends. Tarik “amke2001” Novo was crowned the back-to-back FIFA champion, and last, but most certainly not least, one of the Noble Elite teams, BLK, outplayed the Brawl Stars teams.

Brawl Stars

With small differences compared to the previous season, Brawl Stars is back once again. We keep stating how Brawl Stars is growing in the region day by day, and that has never been more true than right now. There are enormous amounts of teams playing and competing to reach the next competitive level. A1 Adria League is here to help the players in their journey, as seen recently with the Clash of Leagues where we sent two regional teams to the prestigious tournament.

Two more qualifiers will be added to the qualifying stage of the eighth season. With the total number now being six, teams will have more chances to earn points and qualify for the SWISS stage. Once again, we are featuring a BO5/BO3 SWISS stage which will guarantee that only the very best teams make it through to the double-elimination playoffs.

The 16 best teams of every cup will earn points which will be split in the following manner:

First place – 100 points
Second place – 70 points
Third and fourth place – 50 points
Fifth to eight place – 20 points
Ninth to sixteenth place – 10 points

FIFA

Just like Season 5, this season’s FIFA league will take place during the usual transitional period for the franchise. Regional FIFA players will play a similar format as Supercell’s Brawl Stars. This has been an exciting year for the regional scene which has had plenty of tournaments so far, and we are sure that the players have prepared well for the eighth A1 Adria League season.

The five open qualifiers will boast a BO2 single elimination bracket with the semifinal and final matches being BO3. After the qualifiers come to an end, the SWISS league participants will transition to FIFA22. The new FIFA22 will be the home of the A1 Adria League during the SWISS stage (BO3) and the playoffs of the league (double-elimination BO3).

Depending on their results, the top 16 players will receive points after every qualifier comes to an end:

First place – 100 points
Second place – 70 points
Third place – 50 points
Fourth place – 40 points
Fifth to eight place – 20 points
Ninth to sixteenth place – 10 points

CS:GO

CS:GO is back yet again! The domination of Dimitrije “DiMKE” Veljković’s teams continued into 2021 and culminated with their victory in the seventh season. But after the season came to an end, a number of teams, most notably 4glory, Marten Gaming, AIRLYA (ex-Good Game), and anlaki have been playing and winning on the regional scene. An interesting season is certainly before us and the time to sign up and be a part of it is NOW!

Besides the two invited teams, six squads will participate in the eight CS:GO season of the A1 Adria League. The top eight teams of the open qualifier will play in the closed qualifier which will give out three spots in the League. The same format will repeat once again, for the second pair of qualifiers. Six qualified and two invited teams will then play a BO3 SWISS stage and fight for four spots in the single-elimination BO3 playoffs.

With four in a row, can DiMKE & co. make it five or will a new team step up to the challenge?

League of Legends

Probably the biggest format change in the new season will happen in League of Legend’s format. Instead of the Season 7 format which featured national qualifiers and playoffs before reaching the regional playoff stage, this season we will have a simpler format. Regional League of Legends teams will play a total of four qualifiers during which will start a bit later than the other qualifiers.

Two teams from every qualifier will advance directly to the regional playoffs. Here, a double-elimination BO3 bracket will reveal the two teams that will clash in the grand BO5 final of the League. Split Raiders won the comeback season last time, and now is your time to take their title away! Sign up and become the new A1 Adria League LoL champion.
