It was an eventful weekend for Free Fire

1. We unveiled the Free Fire Continental Series (FFCS) grand finalists from all three regions – Asia, Americas, and EMEA – over the weekend.

2. Free Fire was also named “Esports Mobile Game of the Year” by the Esports Awards 2020 at their annual awards ceremony held virtually yesterday.

1. FFCS: Play-ins results

We concluded the Asia Series Play-ins yesterday evening. The top five teams have qualified for the Asia Series Grand Finals, joining the seven teams who earlier earned direct qualification by winning their local level tournaments.

The 12 grand finalists will now compete in the Asia Series Grand Finals on 29th November for a slice of the $300,000 prize pool and the title of the region’s strongest team.

The Asia Series Play-in featured Team CRX Elite and XTZ Esports in action, respectively, the first and second-runners up at the Free Fire India Championship (FFIC) 2020 Fall. However, the competition in the Play-ins proved too hot, with both teams missing out on the FFCS Asia Series Grand Finals after placing eleventh and eighth, respectively.
