Three games are ready for the playoffs!

CS:GO, Brawl Stars, and FIFA21 have reached the end of the SWISS stage and are ready to hop into the playoffs stage of the seventh season!

Brawl Stars

The fifth Brawl Stars round was played a week before the other two. Mayoi and Lil Surprise managed to squeeze past Tora Gold and 09 Gang. These two matches concluded a group stage that was filled with high-quality matches from its very beginning. The Noble Elite squads qualified a bit earlier, in the third (BLK) and fourth round (Red). While we will still watch these four teams further in the playoffs, we need to shout out Tora Gold, 09 Gang, Omerta, and QSKE Gaming for the great matches – we hope to see you in Season 8 as well!

FIFA21

Our FIFA players haven’t been any less incredible this season. From Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac breezing past 3-0 to Esad “NKOS_esad1memic” Memić qualifying in the last rounds, all qualified players completely deserve to be in the playoffs. In the last round, Leon “Sardinho213” Šardi, a new player in the League, had to leave us after being eliminated by NKOS_esad1memic. We would love to see him try to qualify for the next season as well, together with Armin “arminho0307” Hasanbegović, Marko “klaic” Klaić, and Emir “Sulja” Suljović.

CS:GO

This last Sunday was reserved for a match between the Serbian teams 4glory and Cobalt Esports. 4glory came extremely prepared for the match and they were able to counter Cobalt’s playstyle with ease. What followed was a 2-0 win for Luka “c0llins” Živanović’s squad who are now the last team to qualify for the CS:GO playoffs. More information about the semifinal matches in CS:GO as well as in the other two titles will be revealed soon!

This week in A1AL: Time to close out the SWISS stage!

CS:GO and FIFA21 will play out their respective fifth SWISS rounds during this week, while on Saturday, League of Legends will continue with its Regional Playoffs stage!

FIFA21, just like CS:GO, has one match remaining before we reach this season’s playoffs. Leon “Sardinho213” Šardi and NK Osijek’s Esad “NKOS_esad1memic” Memić will clash for the last playoffs spot. The season 5 champion has had a shaky group stage so far and his opponent, Sardinho213, is sure to put up a great fight in the last match. Tonight, the two of them will give their best, but there is only one spot remaining in the playoffs. Tune in and watch this match that is certainly going to be a spectacle.

FIFA

Two Serbian and two Macedonian teams will fight for first place in the CS:GO playoffs. The question for this Sunday is, which team is going to be the second Serbian team that will join ONYX, Good Game, and PORTUGAL in the final stage of the A1 Adria League. On one side, we have 4glory, while their opponents are none other than – Cobalt Esports. Both squads showed their quality during the SWISS stage and now it is time to see which team will prevail – will it be Marko “Maki” Mijatović’s Cobalt Esports or Luka “c0llins” Živanović’s 4glory?

CS:GO

While the SWISS stages are coming to an end, the current League of Legends stage is going on and slowly coming close to its pinnacle. This week, we have three matches – Split Raiders are meeting Fiko Izdaja in the upper bracket playoffs, Mental Boomers and Placeholder will fight for one of the spots in the third lower bracket round, with the second one going to the winners of the HarmonyQSKE Gaming matchup. The stream starts at 14:00 this week, so make sure to join our broadcasting channels and watch the League of Legends action!

Good Game and PORTUGAL join ONYX in the playoffs!

After a technical win and one great victory by PORTUGAL, we now know two more teams that will play the CS:GO playoffs besides the current champions, ONYX.

Good Game and Midnight were supposed to play a BO3 on Mirage, Vertigo, and Dust2, respectively. While Good Game certainly had the role of favorites, their victory came because of a different reason. Namely, Ivan “R1teks” Tokai had electricity problems and wasn’t able to continue playing after the first three rounds of Mirage were played out. His team couldn’t find a suitable substitute on time so the victory went the way of Good Game.

4glory and PORTUGAL played two intense maps that saw the latter outplay the Serbian squad and qualify for this season’s playoffs stage. The first map, Dust 2, went to overtime since the teams finished the regular part of the match 15-15. In the only overtime played, PORTUGAL managed to win the four required rounds and consecutively, the whole map. Next up was Nuke, which once again was played until the very end, but this time, PORTUGAL squeezed past some important rounds and won the map 16-14.

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.

 

Cobalt Esports eliminate Onlinerss from the seventh season!

In the only match of this CS:GO Round 4 playday, we watched Cobalt Esports take on Onlinerss and eliminate them after only two maps.

This match started on Inferno. It was an easy game for Cobalt Esports who outplayed the current CS:GO BIH League champions with a dominant 16:7 final result. Right after Inferno, Train was the map that the audience was looking at. It was a much more exciting map than Inferno as both teams had their moments and showed some great tactics on the now-removed Active Duty map. However, Marko “Maki” Mijatović and Cobalt once again reigned supreme and closed out the BO3 with a 16:12 victory. This loss meant elimination for Onlinerss, while Cobalt Esports will fight for their last chance at making the playoffs in the next round.

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.

ONYX qualify for this season’s CS:GO playoffs!

The end of the third round for CS:GO saw the reigning champions earn their spot in the playoffs in the derby versus 4glory.

Two matches marked the end of yet another CS:GO round in which we got our first qualified side. ONYX have been dealing with internal problems and recently did massive changes to their roster, but the squad managed to win their match against 4glory even with their old team. Vladyslav “⁠bondik⁠” Nechyporchuk and Dmitriy “⁠jR⁠” Chervak – two experienced veterans joined the team’s lineup today as a change to an international team was announced. As far as the match goes, it went  to three maps – 4glory got Inferno and ONYX responded with two wins on Train and Mirage, respectively.

Match two ended a bit quicker than the first one as only two maps were played out. Cobalt Esports and Good Game were a part of the 1-1 pool before the third round. While it wasn’t a decider match, this result managed to shape the incoming rounds in a different way. Namely, Good Game, who were considered favorites by most won the match after only two rounds and locked in their second victory in the seventh A1 Adria League season. Cobalt Esports, on the other side, now reside in the 1-2 pool together with Onlinerss and Midnight.

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.

 

Fullshock are the first eliminated CS:GO team!

The first playday of Round 3 is done for CS:GO, and after the two matches concluded, it is now known that Fullshock are the first team to leave this season of the A1 Adria League.

Firstly, Midnight and PORTUGAL played their parts of the 1-1 team pool. We expected a great BO3 series and the match certainly didn’t fail to disappoint. Train went to overtime, and in the end, Midnight triumphed on it. Then, PORTUGAL overcame the map disadvantage and came back to win the entire game. Mirage went 16-11 in their favor and finally, Andrej “Necrogenes1s” Mancheski’s team closed out the match on Inferno (16-9).

Match 2 started out exactly the same. Onlinerss and Fullshock were both on the brink of elimination and they couldn’t let map one slip from either’s fingers – Train, Onlinerss’ map pick, went to overtime and finished in favor of their opponents, the Croatian Fullshock squad. In the end, the BIH League Season 3 champions came back and eliminated Fullshock.

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
