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.

FIFA

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.

Interested in our format, prize pool, and other relevant information about the CS:GO A1 Adria League? THIS is what you are looking for!

We present to you the two invited CS:GO teams!

Before the start of the second qualifier, it is time to reveal the two invited sides for the eighth A1 Adria League season – 4glory and PORTUGAL.

Last weekend, three teams secured their spots in the upcoming SWISS phase of this season. The former Anlaki players, which have now taken on the legendary name iNation by signing contracts with the organization, managed to be the first team to qualify for the league. Marten Gaming and JESTE followed, and along with the invited teams, we already have five squads in the A1 Adria League.

4glory

4glory finished the seventh season in fourth place, behind Good Game, PORTUGAL, and ONYX. Since then, they have continuously improved and achieved good results, including a first-place finish in the Esport Adria Championship Season 5. Now, Miloš “dEE” Marčeta and his team will try to improve their result from the previous season and take the title in the A1 Adria League. As ONYX now have their focus on the international scene, we decided that 4glory would be the ideal candidates for one of our invites. 4glory will feature the following lineup in the A1 Adria League:

Rs Luka “c0llins” Živanović
Rs Vladan “Kind0” Mandić
Rs Miloš “dEE” Marčeta
 Nemanja “sarenii” Šarenac
Rs Filip “aVN” Belojica

PORTUGAL

The Macedonian-majority mix team that seemingly appeared out of nowhere during the last season managed to reach the grand finals of the League. Andrej “Necrogenes1s” Mancheski and the rest of the team won the Macedonian derby against their rivals, Good Game (now AIRLYA), and advanced to the finals where they met ONYX. While ONYX dominated their opponents on Dust2 with a 16-2 win, PORTUGAL took Train to overtime but that simply wasn’t enough. PORTUGAL will field the following team last season:

Blaže “HEv1X” Hristov
Andrej “Necrogenes1s” Mancheski
Zoran “xicoz” Markovski
Anel “NENO” Ceković
Alexander “br0” Bro

The last CS:GO qualifier will be played out this weekend. SIGN UP and join 4glory, PORTUGAL and the remaining teams in the eighth season of A1 Adria League.

The seventh A1 Adria League season wraps up!

The end of the final CS:GO playday marked the end of yet another A1 Adria League season as well as the second Reboot Online Games Week.

Reboot Online Games Week once again offered over 150 hours of gaming-related content to fans all around the region. From My Story and Panel to the live streams and the A1 Adria League finals, we couldn’t really ask for more during the last week. Wednesday was dedicated to the Brawl Stars teams, FIFA’s players entered the stadiums on Thursday and Friday, and League of Legends completed its comeback on Saturday. Sunday was the climax of a two-month-long CS:GO journey, as well as the end of this, seventh, iteration of the League.

Brawl Stars

Our Brawlers clashed on Wednesday. Noble Elite BLK and Point Gaming (ex-Lil Surprise) entered the arena first as the first semifinal match started. BLK’s victory sent Point Gaming to the lower bracket and they were later joined by Mayoi, who couldn’t defeat Noble Elite Red. The elimination match saw Mayoi lose to the aforementioned opponents, while the upper-bracket finals ended with a Noble Elite BLK win. The losers of this match, Red, bounced back against Point Gaming and returned to the finals, only to be defeated once again by the organization’s BLK team.

The top four Brawl Stars teams:

1. rs Noble Elite BLK – 900€
2. hr Noble Elite Red – 600€
3. hr Point Gaming – 300€
4. rs Mayoi – 200€

FIFA21

Unlike the other three titles, FIFA’s finals were played out in the span of two days. During Thursday and Friday, we watched the four remaining players battle it out until the very end. Miloš “brstimir” Majdevac, Tarik “amke2001” Novo, Filip “FIFAFICO” Babić and Esad “NKOS_esad1memic” Memić played took part in the playoffs which featured a double-elimination bracket. In the end, amke2001 succeeded in defending his title and becoming the back-to-back regional FIFA champion.

2. rs brstimir – 500€
3. NKOS_esad1memic – 300€
4. hr FIFAFICO – 200€

League of Legends

They did it! Split Raiders were once again merciless and finished the League of Legends grand finals without losing a map (3-0). Before that match took place though, Harmony and Fiko Izdaja went at it in the lower bracket finals. There, Harmony outplayed their opponents and secured a rematch against Split Raiders. As mentioned above, Split Raiders dominated the final match and won the main prize of 1.600€!

The top four League of Legends teams:

1. hr Split Raiders – 1.600€
2. Harmony – 1.200€
3. hr Fiko Izdaja – 800€
4. rs Placeholder – 400€

CS:GO

One more CS:GO season is behind us! It seems that it has become a tradition to host an amazing season and in the end, crown the ONYX core as the returning champions. With yesterday’s triumph, Dimitrije “DiMKE” Veljković and Aleksa “Impulse” Stankić have been the A1 Adria League champions four times. Aleksa did it in seasons 2, 5, 6, and 7, while DiMKE did it in four consecutive seasons, starting from season 4. The runners-up for the season are PORTUGAL, Good Game came in third, and 4glory are fourth

The top four CS:GO teams:

1. rs ONYX – 2.000€
2. PORTUGAL – 1.500€
3. Good Game – 1.000€
4. rs 4glory – 500€

 

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!

Brawl Stars Standings

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.

FIFA21 Standings

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!

CS:GO Standings 5

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.
