Two Malaysian teams have qualified for the final leg of the Free Fire World Series (FFWS) 2022 tournament, where they will be competing for a cut of the US$2mil (RM8.6mil) prize pool.

Team Farang has been seeded for the finals, while Team Todak, having qualified for the play-ins, will have to take a longer and more arduous route.

Both teams are making their debuts at FFWS and will be duking it out with 18 squads from multiple regions in the tournament, which will be held in Singapore for the second time.

“FFWS will be our first major global appearance. We are motivated to give our all and a good fight to become the best team in the world,” said Fawwaz “Soultannn”, Team Farang director.

“We see the tournament as a battle against ourselves, and our team’s priority is to focus on our mental health and game strategy above all else.”

Todak said it’s extremely grateful and excited to be competing in FFWS.

“We hope to use this opportunity to showcase our skills on a global stage and achieve victory,” said Muhd Nazmi “Nxzmi” Nahar, Todak team manager.

“We are aware that we may be seen as the underdogs of the tournament. However, we are here to learn and gain valuable experience, so our team members are under no pressure despite this being our first time entering FFWS.”

This year’s lineup excluded teams from two regions: India and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), which includes Russia and Ukraine.

There are no squads from India because the Free Fire India Championship was suspended after the game was banned by the government in February over data privacy concerns. The CIS regional qualifiers, on the other hand, were cancelled due to Russia invading Ukraine.

The play-ins are on May 14 and the finals are on May 21.

The top four teams from the play-ins will join the top eight seeded teams in the finals, for a total of 12 finalists.

In the finals, the teams will battle over six rounds across three maps, and points will be awarded based on round ranking and kill count.

Teams participating in the play-ins include Fuego (Curacao), House of Blood (Pakistan), LGDS (Taiwan), Vivo Keyd (Brazil), Echo Esports (Indonesia), V-Gaming (Vietnam), Ignis Esports (Mexico), All Stars Esports (Syria) and Attack All Around (Thailand).

The squads seeded for the finals are last year’s winner Evos Phoenix (Thailand) and runner up Loud (Brazil), Evos Divine (Indonesia), Team Flash (Vietnam), Mineros Esports (Argentina), Wask (Morocco) and Vasto Mundo (Portugal).
