The most recent version of the roadmap contains a number of competitions, including two major tournaments, which are scheduled to take place in the months of May and November of this year. In addition to this, Garena will be implementing a brand-new tournament format for all of its international championships.
Garena to introduce new major tournament for SEA
In the recently published esports roadmap, Garena has introduced a new tournament for the SEA region called Free Fire SEA Invitational (FFSI). This is a newly introduced multiregional tournament that will feature 18 invited teams from MCPS, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Europe, MEA, Taiwan, and Pakistan. The tournament is set to begin in May and will take place in three weekends.
Free Fire World Series (FFWS) is also set to make its return in November this year. Like always, the tournament will feature the best teams from all over the world to find out the new world champions of Free Fire. A total number of 18 teams from all around the world will take part in this world championship event.
The teams for Free Fire World Series (FFWS) and Free Fire SEA Invitational (FFSI) will be selected through local leagues which will be held around the world from February to April and July to October. The Spring Seasonal Pro Leagues from February to April will select the teams for FFSI. Whereas, the Fall Season Pro Leagues will select the teams for FFWS.
Garena is implementing a new format for international tournaments
Garena has announced that it will be implementing a new tournament for all the international tournaments to be held from now. From now, the 18 teams will participate in tournaments featuring two different stages, which are the Group Stage and Grand Finals. The tournaments will take place over three weekends.
The Group Stage will take place over two weekends, where the 18 teams will fight among themselves for a spot in the Grand Finals. The top 12 teams from the Group Stage will proceed to the Grand Finals. The teams will be divided into 3 groups of 6, with 2 groups facing off across 6 games on each match day of the Group Stage.
The Grand Finals will feature the top 12 teams from the Group Stage. The Grand Finals will be held over three days with a total of 18 matches, and 6 matches daily. The champion of the tournaments will be selected based on the total points accumulated by the teams over these three days or 18 matches.
Garena hopes to change the overall landscape of Free Fire esports by implementing these changes. With the new formats being applied, teams will be required to show more skills to take their rightful spots in the grand tournaments. With the extended tournament time, the fans will also get to enjoy more action from their favorite teams.
