Free Fire Asia All-Stars 2020 was hosted by Garena on 12th and 13th June. Free Fire’s premier online-only esports tournament in Asia brought together top influencers and professional players from India, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam. FFAA 2020 participants battled it out from their homes, fighting for the $80,000 prize pool. The tournament’s online streams of the matches were broadcasted on multiple channels across YouTube, Facebook and BOOYAH! with local shoutcasters providing commentary.

Influencers All-Star Rankings
WIPWUP, another team from Thailand, got second place. The team has influencers like Sandee Ch, Rambo FF, TONKLA, and SoCyber.
Indian Teams in All-Stars 2020
Two teams comprised of players from the India server secured podium finishes in both tournaments. Indian rosters Desi Boys composed of Dev Alone, GamingwithNayeem, JONTY GAMING, and Romeo Gamer, secured third place in the final standings with 153 points in the Influencer All-Stars while The Mafia’s also placed third in the Pros All-Stars. While the Free Fire community in India has been plagued with numerous instances of hacking, this tournament went down smoothly. It is certainly reassuring to see that this particular tournament, given its magnitude, wasn’t plagued by similar issues.
The Pros All-Stars event had a $50,000 prize pool up for grabs in this division. Twelve professional teams from India, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Thailand were competing. Xavier Esports were the Pros All-Stars champions on Day 2. The team accumulated a total of 197 points from six matches, 63 points ahead of second-placed Wisdom Esports. The team showed what they are made of by ranking third in all of their games except for the fourth match, where they earned a Booyah, bagging them $12,000 of the $50,000 prize pool. Thailand’s Wisdom Esports came in second place and another Thai roster ILLUMINATE came in sixth place.
