We’ll be crowning our CS:GO champions of the A1 Adria League this weekend for the third time in a row. Two times champions - Cr4zy (ex. Valiance) are now competing on the much higher level, and therefore other teams are getting the new opportunities.
The playoff stage will be played as a series of best of ones, where the lower bracket finals will be best of three and the Grand Finals best of three as well.
The action will be split into two days:
Day 1: 15.06.2019. 16:00 CEST Day 2: 16.06.2019. 16:00 CEST
MEET THE 8 REGIONAL TEAMS THAT WILL COMPETE IN THE PLAYOFFS AND GIVE THEM ALL A WARM WELCOME.
TRTRR vs. uNiQUE
uNiQUE are heading into this match as clear favorites. The team has had a lot of success in recent times and surely they will not miss a chance to continue to do so. The core of the team SENER1, sinnopsyy, and juanflatroo have been playing together for some time now. They were the only unbeaten team in the online group stage of the CSadria Clan Championship powered by A1 but didn’t attend the LAN finals due to the visa issues. Now they have the second chance to prove they are the top dogs in the region. Their opponents on the other hand, North Macedonian team TRTRR managed got to go to the before mentioned LAN finals because of the uNiQUE not attending. They’ve put up a strong performance but finished in the 3rd/4th in the end.
INVICTUS vs. to jeste
In the 3rd season, we have only one Serbian team in the playoffs for the first time in the history of the League, and it’s the team to jeste. But sure it’s an interesting one. We have the season 1 champion DJOKSiCK playing with other well-known players in the region like andr1x, juricM, dav, SHEV, and Salted. Some of them have already played in the finals of the A1 Adria League, in order to do so again, they’ll have to beat INVICTUS. The new and upcoming team from Montenegro played really well in the qualifiers One thing we do know about them is that they like to play CSadria Retakes public servers. The word going around is that they are really strong, but they’ll have to show it over the weekend against a very experienced team.
Vilay Black vs. Screamstars
Only Croatian team in the playoffs of the A1 Adria League will be facing Vilay Black, another team coming from North Macedonia. Screamstars were on the verge of the breakthrough on many occasions in the region, and they made it to the Season 3 playoffs. They’ll have to fill out the shoes of the Locastic Esports, team that represented Croatia really well last season. Vilay Black has been on the scene for some time now with several lineup changes. They’re always here, managing to qualify for the most regional tournaments and leagues, so seeing them in the top 8 of this season shouldn’t be a surprise.
Mischievous vs. TheOverPowerd (to be Vilay Esports)
Mischievous being the third team from North Macedonia means that this year we have the most representatives coming from that country. They’ve also been around for some time, we had to chance to watch their matches in several regional competitions, but they are struggling to advance to top 4. TheOverPowered guys recently found a new organization, but because of the rules, they’ll have to play under the tag they qualified. Always nice to see prominent players in the region like saveeey, brky and bustem doing well and thriving once again. But we’ll have to wait and see do they have what it takes to make it all the way to the finals.
WE WISH BEST OF LUCK TO ALL THE TEAMS. MAY YOUR AIM BE ON PINT, YOUR SPRAY CONTROLLED AND YOUR UTILITY EFFICIANT!
