The Grand Finals of the Free Fire Continental Series (FFCS 2020) Asia flew by in just four intense hours of top-tier Free Fire esports action, and though the winners were seemingly clear-cut in the beginning, Thailand’s EXP Esports proved that determination and steady minds can win both the hearts of fans and the championship title.
The FFCS 2020 Asia champions didn’t have a great head start in the first match of the Grand Finals, settling for sixth place albeit with seven kills, the second-highest in that match. Though they got their momentum subsequently and even scored one BOOYAH!, their fellow countrymen, King of Gamers Club, always managed to stay one step ahead of them refusing to give up their top spot – history seemed to be repeating itself like the Play-in … at first. Despite a poor performance in Match 5, EXP Esports didn’t lose hope and barely came out on top with a one-point lead in the final match, emerging victorious.
EXP Esports were rewarded US$80,000 for their exceptional performance, whereas King of Gamers Club and RRQ Hades settled for US$50,000 and US$30,000 each as the runner-ups and second runner-ups, respectively.
Alas, Malaysia’s Geek Fam Free Fire couldn’t keep up with the power of their Asian cousins and placed seventh. Even so, they succeeded in reaching top 3 in four matches and even got as many as seven kills in one round, a glimpse of how they’d most probably fare in the next season.
As for the other two series of FFCS 2020 (which took place earlier in the day than Asia), the champions of the Americas and EMEA series were Team Liquid and Sbornaya ChR, respectively. With both series sharing the same prize pool as the Asia series (US$300,000), both winners also bagged the US$80,000 champions cash prize.
The FFCS 2020 Grand Finals were held yesterday (22 November), with the EMEA Series at 12AM, followed by the Americas at 1AM and finally, the Asia series at 3PM.
