ROGW’s Panel segments to cover two interesting topics!

It is time to reveal more details about the two panels that will take place during this, second, edition of the Reboot Online Games Week!

PANEL I: Owners of regional esports organizations

Our first panel will host two men who decided to take the risk, invest, and help the growth of regional esports in a unique way. The first one is Branko “Kenzo” Kusovac – the founder of QSKE Gaming, a Croatian organization that has successful teams in a number of esports titles and is currently fielded two teams in this season of the A1 Adria League (League of Legends & Brawl Stars). The second person is Hrvoje Jugec, the co-owner of KlikTech and current esport manager for NK Osijek.

Our host for the panel will be none other than HLTV’s Zvonimir “Professeur” Burazin. He and the guests will talk about the challenges of running an organization in the region, the problems they face as well as the influence of such organizations on the state of the regional esports industry. Check the first panel on Thursday, starting at 14 o’clock.

PANEL II: LIVE Streaming

Panel II is going to focus on another important aspect of the gaming (and remotely esport) industry – live streaming. Not many players in the region can live off competing alone so live streaming is a great alternative source of income for the young up-and-coming stars. Live streaming isn’t limited to esports players though and Sanda Sansen Mamić has proven that to everyone. Although she has some competitive experience, the former tennis player mainly streams on her Twitch channel while running her own YouTube channel.

Joining her as our second guest will be Professeur. While he is a journalist, he is a host and a regular in HLTV’s own CS:GO podcast – HLTV Confirmed. This way we can compare the different versions of live streaming, from individual streaming to running a world-renowned podcast, and everything in-between. The LIVE Streaming panel will take place on Friday (14:00).

Reboot Online Games Week Panel

As is the case with the rest of our streams, you can watch the entirety of our studio’s Reboot Online Games Week on the official YouTube and Twitch A1 Adria League channels!

 

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!

Fiko Izdaja and Split Raiders are in the upper bracket finals!

Another day of the Regional Playoffs stage is now behind us, with Fiko Izdaja and Split Raiders advancing further in the upper bracket!

Four matches were on the menu today – two in the upper and two in the lower half of the bracket. Mental Boomers met Fiko Izdaja in the second round of the winners’ bracket, but they weren’t able to do anything to harm their opponents. Fiko Izdaja held their ground and secured a 2-0 win in this League of Legends match.

In the first match of the lower bracket, Placeholder managed to eliminate Fantastic Esports. Next week, we will watch a match between Placeholder and the losers of the Fiko Izdaja – Mental Boomers match, Mental Boomers. The other upper bracket match finished in favor of Split Raiders, who defeated the Macedonian team Harmony 2-1 after an intense match. Meanwhile, QSKE got a default win in the match against Brotagonists1g. 

We know the names of all four Brawl Stars playoffs teams!

In the final SWISS playday of Brawl Stars, Lil Surprise and Mayoi got their much-needed wins and qualified for the Season 7 playoffs.

The Croatian derby between Tora Gold and Lil Surprise was as fierce as anyone could have hoped for. Both teams were determined to clinch one of the two remaining playoffs spots, but only one of them could really do it. The match was played until the very last set, when Lil Surprise managed to hold their ground and beat Tora Gold in the fifth SWISS round.

The final match of the SWISS league saw 09 Gang and Mayoi give their all. Just like the previous match, this one went to all five maps too, and this time – Mayoi was the team that outplayed their opponents. With these two matches done, the final standings are known – Noble Elite BLK & Red, Mayoi and Lil Surprise will continue on, while Tora Gold, 09 Gang, Omerta and QSKE have ended their participation in this season of Brawl Stars in the group stage.

Watch the final Brawl Stars playday below:

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.

 

Split Raiders outplay Placeholder; Fantastic go to the lower bracket!

In the first playday of the regional League of Legends playoffs for this season, the eight teams participating played their first matches in this double-elimination bracket.

A total of four matches were played out this Saturday. Harmony were able to overcome Fantastic Esports in the only BO3 that went to all three games today. It was an intense matchup that saw the Croatian Fantastic Esports give their best, but their opponents were dedicated to taking the win – and they did. The other Macedonian team wasn’t victorious. Mental Boomers managed to past Brotagonists1g and secure a spot in the next winners’ bracket round, while Brotagonists1g will fight for survival against QSKE Gaming.

Since we mentioned QSKE, let’s talk about their match today. After a great group stage, they came up versus Fiko Izdaja in their first match in the Regional Playoffs. QSKE Gaming’s Serbian squad was unable to compete with Fiko Izdaja and lost that game 0-2. Split Raiders and Placeholder are the two teams that round up the playoffs team list. Their match ended up with a victory for the former, who are now set up to play Harmony next Saturday

Watch this League of Legends playday below:

Omerta eliminated in the fourth Brawl Stars round!

Just like Round 3, this SWISS round of Brawl Stars was concluded in only one playday, with Lil Surprise, 09 Gang, and Noble Elite Red taking the wins.

After QSKE Gaming’s disqualification, the number of matches was reduced so we scheduled the third round to be played in only one playday. The same applied to Round 4, so we had the chance to watch a total of three matches today. The first one for the night was an elimination match between Lil Surprise and Omerta. It saw the former take a comfortable 3-1 win against the Serbian squad and secure a match in the fifth round.

Next up were Tora Gold and 09 Gang. Tora Gold were a part of the 2-1 pool before the beginning of this round, while 09 Gang had only one win so far. However, a great showing from 09 Gang evened their standings – now they are both a part of the 2-2 pool of the SWISS table. To round up the playday, Noble Elite Red took on Mayoi in a match that had a playoffs spot on the line. Noble Elite Red got a clean 3-0 win and joined Noble Elite BLK in the playoffs.

The current Brawl Stars standings can be seen HERE!

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.

League of Legends enters its Regional Playoffs stage!

With this League of Legends day concluding, we now know the names of the eight teams that managed to qualify for the next stage of the A1 Adria League.

Croatia

Three Croatian teams will continue their journey to the Regional Playoffs. Split Raiders advanced through the National Playoffs stage undefeated and beat Fantastic Esports 2-0 in the Grand Finals after Fantastic forfeited their previous duel. Before the final match started, Fiko Izdaja was defeated by Fantastic, but since they already won their fair share of matches, they will also play in the next stage.

Serbia

An action-packed BO3 in the Serbian finals saw QSKE Gaming outplay Mental Boomers and secure the first place in this National Playoff. Just like Split Raiders in Croatia, QSKE didn’t suffer a single loss on their way to the Regional Playoffs. Mental Boomers, on the other hand, fough through the lower bracket and defeated Placeholder in the LB finals.

Just like Croatia, Serbia will also boast three teams in the next stage – QSKE Gaming, Mental Boomers, and Placeholder.

Macedonia

The remaining two teams that will join the Regional Playoffs come from the Macedonian group. They are Harmony and Brotagonists1g – two squads that showed their quality since the very beginning of the double-elimination bracket. With these two additions, the team list is completed.
