Baby Argon: Bearing the Malaysian flag in Free Fire Continental Series 2020 Asia
This Malaysian Free Fire team may have the word “baby” in their name, but it would be unwise to see Baby Argon as bundles of joy. The Free Fire esports prodigies shot their way to third place in the Free Fire Tri-Nation Cup, outclassing Southeast Asia’s top teams with two BOOYAHs, 50 kills and 120 total points, thus granting them passage to the Play-in of the international Free Fire Continental Series (FFCS 2020) Asia.
We present to you, the wunderkinds that make up Baby Argon:
Muhammad Faizkmal “Jebat” bin Kamaruddin - Captain/Scout
Muhammad Nabil Syamim “Fenix” bin Abdul Kahar - Rusher
Afiq Khairizman “Cobra” bin Che Kamaruddin - Rusher
Muhammad Amirul Haazim “Ajim” bin Abd Malek - Support
Muhammad Izzat “Casper” bin Nor Azli - Manager/Coach
“This is the first time Baby Argon qualified for an international tournament, so we are definitely happy reaching the international stage,” expressed manager Muhammad Izzat “Casper” bin Nor Azli on behalf of the team, who were all too busy preparing for the upcoming FFCS 2020 matches.
Casper is also the founder of Baby Argon, the second coming of the original, more seasoned Argon MY team, who were the champions of Free Fire Malaysia Open 2020, not to mention that some of their players represented Malaysia in the regional Piala Presiden Esports 2020 (Presidential Cup) and won the Free Fire Malaysia Solos 2020. “We (Baby Argon) are like the next generation to try and succeed the Argon MY team,” said Casper.
It was by chance that the 25-year-old stumbled upon Baby Argon’s future players when they were previously competing under a different group in the Free Fire Malaysia Open 2020. After finding out that the line-up parted ways from the organisation, he quickly contacted and offered them a place in his all-new team. “I was impressed by their skills and the talent, which I believe can be polished and trained to a higher, more professional level.”
On top of that, their positive attitude, discipline and willingness to learn spurred Casper to coach them even more, so that they could represent Malaysia with pride. Baby Argon’s latest (and highest) achievement at the Tri-Nation Cup, where they finished third, was made possible by regularly competing in online competitions, learning and adjusting their roles until they got it right.
“I taught them to learn gameplays from teams of other countries to improve themselves,” particularly Indonesian team and former world champions EVOS Esports ID, whom they’re inspired by. “Their gameplay is truly beautiful and well-organised, which we try to emulate.” In FFCS 2020 Asia, Baby Argon hope to face Thailand’s King of Gamers Club, the runner-ups of the Free Fire Pro League Thailand Season 3, because of their aggressive and focused gameplay, even when there are enemies close by. “We also want to try facing off against RRQ Hades from Indonesia, due to their amazing strategy.”
At the end of the day, where would Baby Argon be if it weren’t for the fans? “We would like to thank you for never stopping to support us, for showing your enthusiasm in wanting us to play in FFCS 2020. We promise to try our very best to qualify for the FFCS 2020 Asia Finals this Sunday at the Play-in.”
