This week in A1AL: Round 4 is concluding; LoL continues the playoffs!

Each game has two playdays left before the final stage of this A1 Adria League season begins. CS:GO, FIFA, and Brawl Stars will finish their fourth round, while League of Legends goes deeper into the Regional Playoffs stage!

FIFA21

Brawl Stars once again ended after only one day so we will start this week of A1AL with FIFA21. We have one FIFA match scheduled for this Friday. Tarik “amke2001” Novo and Armin “arminho0307” Hasanbegović are two players from the 2-1 and 1-2 SWISS pools, respectively, and they will clash this week in an interesting match that can change the outcome of the SWISS stage. In the event of an arminho0307 win, both players will remain in the SWISS stage with a 2-2 result and will fight in the last round of the groups. However, if amke2001 wins, arminho0307 will be eliminated from the season, while amke will join Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac and Filip “FIFAFICO” Babić in the playoffs.

CS:GO

Cobalt Esports eliminated Onlinerss last week and they are waiting for the other matches to finish before the fifth round starts. These matches are 4gloryPORTUGAL and Good GameMidnight. 4glory and PORTUGAL are two teams that have two wins each so far, and the winner of this duel will advance to the playoffs. In the other match, Good Game has two wins as well, but their opponents, Midnight, have outplayed only one team so far. Just like in FIFA’s only match, if Good Game wins, Midnight will be eliminated, and if Midnight upsets the Macedonians, both teams will be 2-2.

League of Legends

The first Regional Playoffs playday saw the eight qualified teams play out their first matches in the double-elimination bracket. This Saturday, Harmony are taking on Split Raiders and Mental Boomers will play versus Fiko Izdaja in the upper half of the bracket. Down in the losers’ bracket, Placeholder and Fantastic Esports will play the first elimination match of the Regional Playoffs. The second elimination match is between QSKE Gaming and the Macedonian side, Brotagonists1g.

 

This week in A1AL: Round 4 starts; League of Legends goes regional!

This week in A1 Adria League we will see the fourth rounds of Brawl Stars, FIFA21 and CS:GO while League of Legends will enter its Regional Playoffs stage!

Brawl Stars

Our regional Brawlers have had an amazing season so far. The third round was done in one playday, so last week we didn’t have any Brawl Stars action. The plan remains the same for the fourth round – all three matches of the round will be played this Thursday, while next week we will be taking another break from the arenas. Tora Gold and 09 Gang are the teams from the 2-1 and 1-2 pools, respectively, that will be clashing this time in the fourth round. Besides that match, we have one 2-1 match between Mayoi and Noble Elite Red and one 1-2 duel between Omerta and Lil Surprise.

FIFA21

Round 4 of FIFA will commence with a duel between Leon “Sardinho213” Šardi and Filip “FIFAFICO” Babić – two players that are now a part of the 2-1 pool and are fighting for a spot in the playoffs. When the winner of this match gets decided, we will watch one more match, but this time it will be a survival match. Esad “NKOS_esad1memic” Memić will take on Emir “Sulja” Suljović for a chance to stay in the League. While NKOS_esad1memic has the role of a favorite, Sulja has proven time and time again that he can upset the biggest names in the region.

CS:GO

Last Sunday, ONYX managed to qualify for the playoffs over 4glory who fell short of a win for the first time this season. 4glory will have a chance to fix their mistake this week when they are facing PORTUGAL in the 2-1 bracket. Besides this duel that is sure to raise some eyebrows, we will watch Cobalt Esports take on Onlinerss in the second duel of the day. While the winner of this second match will survive for the fifth round, the losing side will have to say its goodbyes to the League and join Fullshock as one of the eliminated teams.

League of Legends

Over the last couple of weeks, the League of Legends teams from Serbia, Macedonia, and Croatia have been playing in their respective National Playoffs stage to advance further in the League. Now, that the National Playoffs stage came to an end, the Regional Playoffs phase of this season’s LoL action can start. The bracket is already known and we have the four pairs that will start this double-elimination journey to the top. Harmony is taking on Fantastic Esports, Brotagonists1g will fight Mental Boomers and QSKE Gaming will have Fiko Izdaja as their opponent. The fourth match will see Split Raiders face Placeholder for a spot in the upper bracket semifinals.

This week in A1AL: Three titles are a step away from the next stage!

While Brawl Stars is done for the round, the remaining two titles in the SWISS round still have another playday to go before reaching Round 4 of this season’s group stage. League of Legends is a step away from the Regional Playoffs!

CS:GO

The second part of the third round will see the currently unbeaten teams, 4glory and ONYX, clash it out to see who will finish the group stage with a flawless 3-0 score. The reigning champions are facing difficulties as they recently parted ways with two key players in their roster, Filip “aVN” Belojica, and Petar “HOLMES” Dimitrijević. aVN proceeded to join his former rivals, 4glory, and HOLMES’s next step is still uncertain. Their match starts at 16h, this Sunday.

When the 2-0 duel comes to an end, it will be time for Good Game and Cobalt Esports to enter the server. Both teams suffered one loss and this round will change much in their approach to the League. The winner will be just one win away from the playoffs, while the losing side won’t get another chance if they lose again. The Macedonian squad is facing Lazar “Laza” Nikolić’s team at either 18 or 19 o’clock, depending on the length of the previous match.

CS:GO SWISS 3-2

FIFA21

While we will be skipping Brawl Stars this week because of all the matches being played last Thursday, FIFA21 will continue as usual with two derbies on the schedule. Firstly, Filip “FIFAFICO” Babić and Emir “Sulja” Suljović are going to play their match on the virtual stadiums of FIFA, and the better player will be put in the 2-1 bracket with Tarik “amke2001” Novo and Leon “Sardinho213” Šardi.

Armin “arminho0307” Hasanbegović will fight for his chance to stay in the League this week. His opponent will be Marko “klaic” Klaić, who is yet another player who hasn’t celebrated a win yet in this season of the league. While the winner will celebrate his survival in the League, the player who will fail to triumph in the match will have to leave the seventh A1 Adria League season.

FIFA SWISS 3-2

League of Legends

The National Playoffs stage for League of Legends is coming to an end this Saturday, as the teams are close to finishing their respective brackets. Macedonia, Serbia, and Croatia will all have their teams in the upcoming Regional Playoffs stage.  In the Macedonian bracket, Harmony is the leading team, while Brotagonists1g and Reborn Esports will meet in the lower bracket finals. QSKE, Placeholder and Mental Boomers are the three Serbian teams still in play, while in Croatia, Split Raiders, Fantastic Esports and Fiko Izdaja are leading the charge.

 

This week in A1AL: The break is over; it’s game time!

After we all took a week to relax and enjoy the holidays, it is time to begin the third SWISS round for Brawl Stars, CS:GO and FIFA21. League of Legends, in the meantime, is close to finishing the National Playoffs stage.

Brawl Stars

The beginning of the third round means that we will know the first playoffs participants when the round comes to an end. Currently, Noble Elite BLK and Mayoi are leading the standings, but their 2-0 duel will be played out in the second part of the round. This week, we will only be watching Omerta take on Tora Gold in hopes of reaching the 2-1 pool.

There should have been a second match played as well, but since QSKE Gaming were recently disqualified from the tournament, 09 Gang will get a default win in this round.

 

 

FIFA21

Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac and Tarik “amke2001” Novo will fight for the first spot in this season’s FIFA playoffs. Amke2001 successfully beat esad1memic in the second round despite the match being a nail-bitter until the very end. brstimir had an easier time with FIFAFICO, but this time, amke2001 is ready to put up a great fight against his opponent and make this match exciting until the last minute.

After these guys play it out, Sardinho213 and NKOS_esad1memic are next in line to show their abilities to the regional audience. The Season 5 player is looking to get back on track after suffering a loss to amke2001, and he will face Sardinho213 who is in form after winning versus arminho0307.

 

CS:GO

Midnight, PORTUGAL, Onlinerss, and Fullshock – four teams that will make the return of CS:GO after the pause. Midnight recently got a hard-fought victory against Onlinerss, and next week, they will have another hard challenge on their way to the playoffs – PORTUGAL.

Onlinerss and Fullshock haven’t had the best start of the season, and unfortunately, one of them will be leaving us after the third round concludes. The 0-2 match between these two teams will be played right after the previous’ match winner is declared.

CS:GO SWISS 3-1

League of Legends

League of Legends will continue its National Playoffs stage this Saturday. Reborn Esports and Harmony are currently the two Macedonian teams in the upper bracket. QSKE and Placeholder hold these two spots in the Serbian qualifiers, with two matches ready to be played out in the lower bracket before advancing further in the Playoffs. Last, but certainly not least, Split Raiders and Fantastic Esports will meet in the Croatian upper bracket final. BL Gaming are already in the third lower bracket round, and they are waiting from the winner of the duel between Fiko Izdaja and RainDrop.

This week in A1AL: No matches, enjoy the holidays!

Simple as that! In the previous week, we have received more than a few requests for teams asking to reschedule their matches due to either family holidays, FPL-C qualifiers, competitive tournaments and due to a large volume of proposals, of course – we had to approve them!

So, to cut things short, this week you won’t be able to enjoy the finest regional esports action and all matches will be postponed for next week. Whether you celebrate holidays or play games, use this opportunity to enjoy your time to the fullest and we’ll see you next week!

Stay safe and enjoy the holidays!

 

This week in A1AL: Second round is drawing to a close!

Two FIFA and Brawl Stars and three CS:GO matches remain until the end of the second SWISS round. The teams are slowly gaining the lead in the group stage and are fighting for their spot in the playoffs.

Brawl Stars

As always, the opening game for our A1 Adria League week is Brawl Stars. First up is the duel between Lil Surprise and Mayoi – a match that will decide who joins Noble Elite BLK in the 2-0 pool. Mayoi managed to get here with a win against Omerta, while Lil Surprise beat a weakened 09 Gang in the first round.

When the first duel concludes, Noble Elite Red and QSKE will enter the arena to fight for their first win. As QSKE Gaming forfeited their last match, this will be the first time we are seeing them in this season of the A1 Adria League. Noble Elite Red are still recovering from their defeat versus Tora Gold which sent them to the 0-1 pool. After this match, one of the teams will join 09 Gang in the 0-2 pool, while the other one will hold their spot in the middle of the standings.

Brawl Stars Round 2-2

FIFA

Friday, FIFA day! The only Slovenian player in this season, Leon “Sardinho213” Sardi will face Armin “Arminho0307” Hasanbegović in the first match. Arminho barely lost his match in the previous round and will be looking to fix his mistake versus Sardinho. Sardinho, on the other hand, was demolished by amke2001 6-1 which really isn’t a great start of the season. Though we are still early on and there are plenty of chances for the Slovenian FIFA player to redeem himself, his first being on Friday versus Arminho.

Marko “Klaic” Klaić and Emir “Sulja” Suljović – a clash between the new players. Each of them won one of the qualifying cups despite facing great competition from the whole region, but their start wasn’t the best and they are now looking to get their first victory. Sulja fell to brstimir and klaic wasn’t able to defeat FIFAFICO. After Friday ends, one of them will be playing in the 0-2 pool, while the second one will join FIFAFICO, esad1memic and the Sardinho/Arminho winner with 1-1.

FIFA Round 2-2

CS:GO

ONYX weren’t able to compete on Sunday so the match was rescheduled for the next playday. That means that we will be watching three great CS:GO matches on Sunday, with ONYX opening up the fourth playday at 14 o’clock. Their opponents will be PORTUGAL.

When that match concludes, Midnight will take on Onliners in our second BO3 of the day. Both teams are new to the League and haven’t met each other yet, which means that the match will be even more interesting than usual. To end the day, 4glory will face Good Game – a match between two of the favorites for this season of A1 Adria League.

Noble Elite BLK go 2-0; Brankec06 leaves 09 Gang mid-match!

The second SWISS round of the A1 Adria League is now LIVE! Today, the regional Brawlers battled it out and we have two winners – Omerta and Noble Elite BLK.

The first match saw Noble Elite BLK avenge the Red squad’s loss to Tora Gold in the previous round. Unlike that match, Noble Elite BLK didn’t sweat against Tora in the second round and secured an easy 3:0 win. The result of this game puts Noble Elite in first place in the Brawl Stars rankings and only one victory separates them from becoming the first playoffs team for this season.

Omerta and 09 Gang met in the second match of the night. While the final result was once again 3:0, this match was much more controversial than the first game of the day. Namely, 09 Gang’s player Brankec06 disconnected in the middle of the match and refused to reconnect, an act that landed him the first place on our banned players list for the season. Because of this, 09 Gang played the last set with a player deficit (2v3).

This week in A1AL: Impossible matchups to predict!

The first round of the SWISS stage is now behind us! Here are the duels and matches that we will be watching during this week of A1 Adria League.

Brawl Stars

Noble Elite BLK are going to look for revenge for the organization’s Red squad in their match versus Tora Gold. Both teams are favorites for this season of the League and the matchup will determine which team will be only a win away from the playoffs of this seventh season of the A1 Adria League. The second match will feature two teams from the 0-1 pool – Omerta and 09 Gang. Omerta narrowly lost their match against Mayoi last week and they are eager to win their first match now. 09 Gang on the other hand forfeited their last match and we will watch them for the first time on Thursday.

Brawl Stars Playday 3

FIFA

The 16th of April is the day when the second FIFA SWISS round starts. First on the schedule are Tarik “amke2001” Novo and Esad “NKOS_esad1memic” Memić – two players that will battle it out to get their second victories. Right after that, we have another winners’ match, this time between Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac and his opponent, Filip “FIFAFICO” Babić. The virtual stadiums are ready to witness more amazing FIFA action – and so are we!

FIFA Playday 3

CS:GO

The favorites won their respective matches in the first round. ONYX, PORTUGAL, Good Game, and 4glory will be moving to the second round as a part of the upper half of the SWISS bracket. After their win versus Cobalt Esports, ONYX will be facing PORTUGAL in the second round. On the other hand, Cobalt will meet Fullshock to determine which team enters the third round in the 1-1 pool. Both matches will be played this Sunday, the first one starting at 16h, and the latter at 18/19h.

CS:GO Playday 3

League of Legends

The time has finally come. The national League of Legends qualifiers begin this weekend and will be played in every country of the Adria region. Riot Games’ MOBA makes its return after appearing in Season 1 & 2 and will feature a new, innovative format for the upcoming two seasons.

More information about this season’s League format as well as instructions on how to SIGN UP for the qualifiers can be found on the following LINK.

QSKE forfeit; Mayoi win their match versus Omerta

With today’s matches coming to an end, we know the teams that will be heading into the second Brawl Stars SWISS round as a part of the 1-0 pool – Tora Gold, Lil Surprise, Noble Elite BLK, and Mayoi.

Just like last week, one of the matches was forfeited and we watched just one game of Brawl Stars. This time, some of QSKE Gaming’s players were unable to play and the team ended up forfeiting the match against Noble Elite BLK. The former Good Game Gold now has one win, unlike their colleagues from Noble Elite Red, who recently lost to Tora Gold.

The only match of the day was a clash between Mayoi and Omerta, the team that was known as Wolves until recently. And again, just like last week, the one match that was played showed the level of the competitive Brawl Stars scene in the region and skills that both teams and. Omerta and Mayoi played up until the very last minute. In the end, however, Mayoi was the team that clinched the victory over their fierce opponents.
