Free Fire’s flagship international tournament for the year, the Free Fire Continental Series (FFCS), kicks off this weekend with the Play-ins!
A number of Grand Finalists for each the tournament’s 3 series – the Americas Series, EMEA Series, and Asia Series – have already been determined, with each region’s top seeds having earned direct entry into the Grand Finals on November 29. Fans can also get in on the action via the tournament livestreams and FFCS-themed in-game events and rewards.
The Play-ins for the Americas and EMEA Series will take place on November 21, while the Asia Series will be held on November 22. The Asia Series will feature teams from Chinese Taipei, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Thailand, and Vietnam.
All of the teams will have their eyes on the tournament’s combined US$900,000 prize pool, with each of the series to have US$300,000 up for grabs.
Malaysia’s 2nd and 3rd seeds, AutoKnockout and Baby Argon, will be in action this weekend in the Asia Series as they each battle for only 5 remaining available Grand Finals spots. Having placed first- and second-runners up respectively at the Free Fire Free Fire Tri-Nation Cup, AutoKnockout and Baby Argon will be confident in their abilities and teamwork.
However, they will be going up against stiff competition in the Play-ins, and will have to navigate their way past the 2nd and 3rd seeds from India, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam, as well as the 2nd seeds from Chinese Taipei and Pakistan.
Malaysia’s top seed, Geek Fam, will feature in the Asia Series Grand Finals on November 29, having earned direct entry – along with six other teams from across the region – after being crowned the winners of the Free Fire Free Fire Tri-Nation Cup.
