OUR STREAMERS

The first weekday stage of the PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021: East concluded last night and the teams for the first Super Weekend have been decided. While our Malaysian representatives (4Rivals and Team Secret) didn't do fantastically, they secured enough points thanks to getting a Chicken Dinner each - hopefully, they bare their teeth this weekend!

Surprisingly two of the top teams from Southeast Asia failed to make the cut this weekend - FaZe and Bigetron RA will have to sit it out while the rest of their opponents get to earn points that matter. FaZe seems to be suffering the most, finishing bottom of the leaderboards with only 21 points, alongside BCS from Japan.

Sitting comfortably at the top are Stalwart Esports (Mongolia), Tong Jia Bao (China) and Nigma Galaxy (Middle East) who are starting to look like the favourites for this tournament. However, it's only the first leg of the tournament and we all know that PMGC is going to be a marathon instead of a sprint - anything can happen in the upcoming weeks.

Super Weekend #1 will take place from 3-5 December, 7 PM, you can catch the action live on Facebook or YouTube. More info.

Over the weekend, the Top Clans 2021 Winter Stage Naraka: Bladepoint tournament came to a close after five days of bloodshed. Emerging as the champions of the whole tournament were Touman Esports, who clinched the top spot at 194.1 points. The final two days of the tournament started off pretty close, with Quince (QE) winning 3/5 matches on day 1, giving them the second spot. However, on Day 2, Touman Esports stepped it up and claimed 3/5 victories of their own, and since they were already in the lead, it propelled them much further than the competition.

Completing the podium were Bamboo Shoots VN & 496 Gaming who came in second and third, respectively. The 3 teams will be moving on to the Naraka: Bladepoint World Championship, representing Southeast Asia. Good luck to them, they're going to need it!

Congratulations to all the other teams who made it to the final day as well, it wasn't easy getting out of groups and even though they didn't do so well on the weekend, they put up a good fight against the winners.

The Top Clans 2021 Winter Stage continues this week with the Rules of Survival tournament on Wednesday. Make sure you don't miss the action on eGG Network or Top Clans Facebook!

Watch the final day of the tournament:

With the year coming to an end, there aren't many large esports events left before we say goodbye to 2021. One of these events remaining is going to be the first Global Esports Games 2021 - the flagship event of the Global Esports Federation. Featuring over a hundred players (men and women) from 40 different countries, they will be competing against each other in Dota 2, eFootball 2022 and Street Fighter V: Champion Edition.

In addition to the aforementioned tournaments, there will also be the GEFcon exhibition taking place the day before the tournament, featuring talks about gaming and health, women in esports, investing in esports, the metaverse, and more.

Unfortunately, there won't be any offline audience, so those of you in Singapore won't be able to catch the action in person. In the meantime, if you'd like to find out more about the tournament and events, you can check out the official website for more information.

GEG 2021 will be streamed live on the following platforms: YouTube, Facebook, TikTok.

It was an exciting weekend for Free Fire fans in SEA as the grand finals of the Free Fire Asia Championship unfolded on Sunday evening. While the best 12 teams in the region competed, only one got to walk away with the grand prize, and that team was HQ Esports of Vietnam. Coming from the gruelling play-ins the previous week, the team pulled out all stops in the finals, winning 3 out of 7 possible BooYahs - the most of the tournament. They proved to everyone that they didn't need a direct invitation to take out the best of the best.

Well played to ThaiSon, FunkyM, NeoNao, NangK and Artemis - they walk away from the tournament $80,000 richer! A huge sum of money for the Vietnamese squad who have only started making strides during the latter half of 2021. Things are looking good for the team moving forward to next season.

Second place went the way of GPX Esports, who performed admirably in this final as well, unfortunately, they lost out by a mere 2 points. The Indonesians netted $50,000 which is a nice chunk of change. Third place was CGGG followed by Heavy in fourth. Fun fact - the top 4 teams all came from the Play-In stage (SYZYGY finished sixth, so it was almost an "all play-in" top 5). Seems like playing extra games really benefited the teams when it came to this tournament. Perhaps teams might start aiming for a play-in spot in the future!

That concludes the Free Fire season for Asia this year. We can't wait to see what happens in the coming months. In the meantime stay tuned to eGG Network as we bring you all the latest news and updates on your favourite esports. More info.

The Free Fire Asia Championship play-ins took place over the weekend and we now know the final 12 teams that will be playing this weekend for the trophy.

Group A

Taking the top 2 spots on Saturday were HQ Esports (Vietnam) and SYZYGY (Thailand). The two teams were miles ahead of everyone else, with HQ getting 3/6 BooYahs, and SYZ getting top three in 4/6 rounds. Both teams look in great form for the upcoming finals.

Group B

Group B was a much closer race, with second place and third place being only 3 points apart. Ultimately, it was CGGG (Thailand) and GPX Esports (Indonesia) who emerged top of the groups. Fortunately for Heavy (Vietnam), third place was enough to get into the finals because they scored more points than SAF from group A. The three teams split almost all the BooYahs between each other yesterday, with only one victory going to a team that didn't qualify to the finals (BOX Gaming).

Unfortunately for Malaysian Free Fire fans, DOEASY and 4X MEN XPERT failed to make it out of the play-ins - this means Blacklist International will be the only team to raise the Jalur Gemilang this in the finals. Here are all the teams competing for the championship:

 

The Free Fire Asia Championship concludes on 28 November, 6 PM (GMT +8) and will be broadcast live on Facebook or YouTube. More info.
