Months of competition have led to this moment in history, the Free Fire World Series 2021 in Singapore. After just two days of brief but gargantuan stakes matches, Phoenix Force proved mightiest and won the world championship. With four BOOYAHs (mind-boggling) and the highest kill volume of 48 across the six-match Finals, it’s an undisputed claim that they are worthy of the title as the world’s best Free Fire professional esports team, along with the hefty cash prize of US$500,000. As the icing on the cake, Phoenix Force’s TheCruz also snagged the MVP title.
The Thai team made history by bagging three BOOYAHs in a row at the start, giving them a huge headstart throughout the rest of the tournament. There were moments when LOUD and Silence, the runner-ups and second runner-ups, could’ve caught up with them, but Phoenix Force’s top 3 placements in their non-BOOYAH matches and a multitude of eliminations proved too much for them. Nevertheless, LOUD and Silence earned US$250,000 and US$100,000, respectively, for their hard-fought battles.
Malaysia’s very own Geek Fam Free Fire had a rough time in the Finals. Aside from placing second in Match 2, they didn’t manage to reach that same high in the other rounds, though they made up for those with an assortment of kills. They ended their run with ninth place and took home US$70,000.
Next up, the season resets once more. The Free Fire Malaysia Championship 2021 will be kicking off the local Free Fire esports scene, with registration currently underway until 3 June. FFMC 2021 will feature a US$50,000 prize pool, with the Qualifiers commencing on 4 June.
FFWS 2021 Singapore was the first offline Free Fire esports event to be held since the FFWS 2019. The international tournament pit 18 of the best teams across the globe, where they battled for the US$2 million prize pool on 28 May for the Play-ins, followed by the Finals on 30 May.
