Like all good things, the Free Fire All-Stars 2021: Asia has come to an end. After three days of intense action between your favourite Free Fire celebrities in the region, the winners of this fun tournament have been decided! There were 3 modes throughout the whole tournament - Bomb Squad, Clash Squad and Battle Royale.
For Bomb Squad, we had the Indonesian stars, Indomee finishing in first place after a close 3-2 victory over Vietnam's Phở. It could have gone either way, but on Friday, Indomee were the better team.
In the Clash Squad tournament, we had Som Tum from Thailand taking the trophy away from Boba (Taiwan) 3-1. They lost only one game the whole day, which was during the grand final.
For the last day, which was Battle Royale (the 'normal' game mode), it was a close fight between Indomee and Tom Yum Kung, with the difference between the two coming down to their performance in the final round. While Phở finally found their pace in the final round of the tournament, scoring 32 points and finishing first, it wasn't enough for them to dethrone the top 2. Ultimately, it was Tom Yum Kung who walked away the victors, with a total of 85 points.
Unfortunately for Malaysia's representatives (Durian for MCP), they had a poor showing at the event and walked away with no prize money.

Free Fire esports is serious business, with tournaments like the Free Fire Malaysia Championship (FFMC 2021) currently underway. All work and no fun makes anyone dull, which is why Garena is throwing in some fun with the globe-trotting Free Fire All Stars (FFAS 2021), taking place in the Americas; Asia; and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) between July and August.
In FFAS 2021, the community will be treated with popular Free Fire content creators and fan favourite players duking it out in Garena's mobile battle royale. Here are the Facebook Gaming Creators who will be entertaining us in FFAS 2021 Asia:
For the first time ever in an international Free Fire tournament (albeit a fun casual one), contestants will be competing in three different in-game modes during FFAS 2021 Asia, including:
To spice things up even more, participating streamers will be fighting for the US$10,000 daily champions cash prize, totaling up to US$30,000. Looks like the arena will be scorching hot during FFAS 2021 - who wouldn't want to win that much cash?
Catch FFAS 2021 Asia from 23 - 25 July at 7PM (GMT +8) daily, LIVE on Facebook, YouTube and TikTok.
Uncertainties about the Free Fire global esports scene have been laid to rest, with publisher/developer Garena lifting the curtain off its worldwide esports roadmap for Free Fire in 2021.
The biggest highlight is that the sorely-missed Free Fire World Series (FFWS) is making a comeback in 2021, after being temporarily replaced by the Free Fire Continental Series (FFCS 2020) last year. Two editions of the global tournament will be happening in April and November, with the former iteration running from 24 April (Play-Ins) to 1 May (Finals).
Further expanding its reach across the world, FFWS 2021 will be inducting teams from three more regions to join in the high-stakes competition, including the Middle East, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. They'll be competing alongside established teams like Latin America, Europe, and Asia, totalling up to 22 participating teams.
Plus, FFWS 2021 is increasing its total prize pool to a gargantuan US$2 million, the biggest for Free Fire esports so far.
Another international Free Fire esports tournament was revealed as well, albeit with a different angle. The Free Fire All-Stars will be an invitational of sorts, pitting both professional players and the world's most popular Free Fire influencers against each other. The star-studded event will take place in July, with more details to be revealed soon.
Back in the present, the Free Fire Malaysia, Cambodia, and Philippines (MCP) Majors League Season 1 is currently underway, entering Week 6 this weekend (6 - 7 March). The top 6 teams in the Grand Finals will immediately qualify for the next season, but - aside from the champions - there has been no information on how many teams will advance to FFWS 2021. Guess we'll find out soon enough.
