On October 2 the time had come. After a successful split and the resulting promotion to Division 2, our League of Legends team took on the challenge of this years Prime League Pokal.
During the group draw, the name All for One Gaming fell in group E. There we faced the following three teams: Schalke 04 Esports, a team from the first division, which we already met in the group stage in 2022, Hannover Esports, the team with which we still had a score to settle after the defeat in the Spring Playoffs and last but not least Team Bash Gaming, a team peppered with a selection of former A41G players. The group constellation promised very exciting matches in any case.
In the group we did not play in the standard Round Robin format as usual but this time with Upper Bracket and Lower Bracket. We started against Hannover Esports in the first round of the Upper Bracket. After a clean 2:0 opening victory we advanced to the Upper Bracket final, where Schalke 04 was waiting for us. Against many expectations, we performed very well against the first division team and secured another win. So we went into the playoffs on direct route, automatically being one of the best 16 teams in the cup.
In the end, it was another first division team, the Unicorns of Love Sexy Edition, that stopped our strong cup run with a flawless performance from their side. Despite the 0:2 defeat in the round of 16 we are very happy about the overall performance and can leave the tournament with our heads held high.
We want to thank all the fans who have accompanied us on our journey through the competition and hope that you will continue supporting All for One Gaming in the future!
