Team 8bit were crowned the Free Fire Battle Arena Champions, beating teams from India, Nepal and Bangladesh to take home 1,00,000 diamonds. Over 5,00,000 teams participated in the online qualifier stage in a bid to fight for the 3,00,000 diamond prize pool. This was also the first tournament for players in Bangladesh and Nepal.
While teams from Bangladesh were eliminated before the finals, the two teams from Nepal who made it into the finals, took the 11th and 12th positions. 8bit kicked things off with a win on the first map, where they were the last team alive in a heal battle. The team managed to continue their momentum, grabbing a second BOOYAH on map number 2. Dominators managed to take a comfortable 8 kill win on map number 3 while Legendary Noobs also picked up their first win in map number 4. 8bit came back in map number 5 for their 3rd BOOYAH and Team Lava closed out the competition with a win on the last map.

Both The Insanity and Nepal Esport were docked 500 points each for a violation of the rules.
With many of the top teams and players being banned in a recent anti-cheat wave, some newer names are about to rise to the top and take the mantle of the champions. With this win, 8 bit is a likely candidate and the margin of their win is a true marker of the potential they hold.
