The first qualifier for the newest game in the League was held on Saturday! After an interesting tournament, we found out the name of the four teams that will compete in the playoffs.
Dota 2 qualifiers are played in the single elimination bracket with the deciding games being the best of three series. After busy Saturday afternoon, we had our quarterfinalists.
The first match was between DMN and markoPLUS4, two Croatian teams in which markoPLUS4 came on top in the convincing fashion. Well-known Serbian team LvLUP didn’t manage to scrape the win against dnz, Mitch and Swiftending, the core of very accomplished Croatian players, and the favorites to win it all.
Macedonian Team Mystique bested the Silver City with 2-0, and xDS outplayed another Croatian team in the top 8, the Beshtiya.
Here are the top 4 teams that will compete in the online playoffs of the 3rd season of A1 Adria League with a prize pool of 1925 euros!
dnz, dzy, Jajkan, Mitch and Swiftending playing under the name of Tim123 are the force to be reckoned with in the playoffs. Three of the players were part of the Elements Pro Gaming, professional team with respectable results. Well-known players with a lot of experience competing on the pro level of Dota 2 have their eyes on the main prize. It will be interesting to see which teams can cause them the most problems.
We would like to thank everyone for competing and would also like to invite you to the next open qualifiers which will be starting on June the 1st! This is your chance to compete in the playoffs of the A1 Adria League. You don’t want to miss it.
