Hey survivors, check out Free Fire Continental Series (FFCS) format and schedule here!

  • Free Fire’s flagship international tournament for 2020 will comprise three separate series – the Americas Series, EMEA Series, and Asia Series – held simultaneously

  • Each series will comprise two stages – the Play-ins and the Grand Finals

29 October 2020Garena has unveiled the format and schedule of Free Fire’s flagship international tournament for the year, the Free Fire Continental Series (FFCS)! The fully-virtual tournament will comprise three separate series – the Americas Series, EMEA Series, and Asia Series – held simultaneously in each of the three regions, and will offer teams the ultimate stage to stake their dominance in each region.

 

The three series are the Americas Series, consisting of the Brazil and the rest of Latin America; the Asia Series, which will involve Chinese Taipei, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Thailand, and Vietnam; and the EMEA Series, which will feature Europe, Russia, and the Middle East, and North Africa (MENA).

 

Each series will have US$300,000 up for grabs, bringing the combined prize pool for the FFCS to US$900,000. To earn a slice of the rewards, the teams will need to navigate two stages: the Play-ins followed by the Grand Finals. 

 

Seeding

 

The top-seeded teams from each local-level tournament will earn direct entry into each series’ respective Grand Finals. The rest of the teams will earn their place in the Grand Finals by besting other teams in the region. 

 

The series will offer fans a mouth-watering chance to witness their favourite local teams go up against their regional rivals. 

 

Schedule

 

Each stage of the tournament will be held simultaneously over the same weekend. For all three series, the Play-Ins will take place on either 21 or 22 November, and the Grand Finals on either 28 or 29 November. 

 

Competitive Format

 

All three series will follow the same competitive format across both stages of the tournament. Teams will battle over 6 rounds, across 3 maps: Bermuda, Purgatory, and Kalahari, with points awarded based on round ranking and the number of kills.
