Garena's largest and most awaited tournament, the Free Fire World Series (FFWS), is set to return this month! Qualifying teams from around the world have arrived in Thailand to compete at the FFWS 2022 Bangkok Play-ins and Finals happening this weekend from November 25 to 26 at 10pm (GMT+8)!
The contestants battle it out in the Play-ins and Finals stages
Fans can expect a weekend of gripping action as the world’s top teams battle in Thailand — the homeground of the champions of the previous 2 FFWS tournaments! During the most recent FFWS 2022 Sentosa which took place in May this year, Attack All Around had managed to beat defending FFWS 2021 Sentosa champion EVOS Phoenix by just 1 point, claiming the prestigious Championship title after making their way from the Play-ins. Both teams hailing from Thailand not only won the tournament, but also dominated the scoreboard, leading the other teams in the Finals by more than 15 points.
With FFWS debutant and blackhorse Nigma Galaxy qualifying as Thailand’s first seed this World Series, and EVOS Phoenix as the second seed, fans are left wondering how the competition will unfold in Bangkok this weekend — will the Thai teams successfully defend their champion title? Or will fans witness an emerging league representative this season?
FFWS 2022 Bangkok will be divided into two stages: the Play-ins and the Finals, with both comprising eight matches. The stages will alternate between the maps of Bermuda, Kalahari, Purgatory, and for the first time in the World Series, Alpine, which features an arctic biome remarkably different from the other 3 maps.
At the end of each round, the teams will receive points based on their ranking and elimination. For each elimination, the team will secure 1 point. If any team wins a BOOYAH!, the team will obtain 12 points, followed by 9 points for second place and 8 points for third. In case of a tie, the team with more BOOYAH!s wins the tie-breaker.
