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.

Good luck, and see you in the online arenas!

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.

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€!

1. hr Split Raiders – 1.600€
2. Harmony – 1.200€

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

1. rs ONYX – 2.000€
2. PORTUGAL – 1.500€

League of Legends’ return to the League culminates today!

Two matches separate us from crowning the A1 Adria League of Legends champions for the first time since the second season of the league!

Fiko Izdaja vs. Harmony

The two teams will face each other in the lower bracket finals to decide the second finalist of the League. The Macedonian team Harmony fell into the lower bracket after suffering a defeat against Split Raiders who are now waiting for their opponents in the final. Since then, they managed to outplay QSKE Gaming and Harmony, and now their last opponent is Fiko Izdaja. On the other hand, Fiko Izdaja had a great run in the regional playoffs, but they also couldn’t get past Split Raiders. The first match of the day starts at 14 o’clock, right after the game preshow comes to an end.

Saturday – 14:00:
 Harmony vs. hr Fiko Izdaja

Split Raiders vs. Harmony/ Fiko Izdaja

Split Raiders have been absolutely unstoppable this entire season. During the Croatian qualifiers, they didn’t lose a single map, let alone a match and now they have been showing even more of their qualities. Once again, they passed the rest of the matches undefeated, but at the very least, Harmony succeeded in winning a map against them this time. Will someone take down the favorites or will they reign supreme in the finals as well? Tune in to find out!

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.

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. 

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

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.
