ALPHA, formerly known as All Stars Esports, will be the first seed team to represent the MENA region in the FFWS 2022 Bangkok. They qualified directly to the Grand Final of the FFWS after being crowned as the champion of the Free Fire Arab League (FFAL) Season 6. This World Series will also be their second straight appearance in the biggest stage of the global Free Fire esports tournament as they have previously participated in the FFWS 2022 Sentosa in May 2022.
The Algerian team INFINITY.VX will be the second team to compete in the FFWS 2022 Bangkok. Unlike the ALPHA team, INFINITY.VX which qualified as the Runner-Up of FFAL Season 6 will battle in the Play-Ins stage and secure the top 4 positions to advance and join the ALPHA team to represent the MENA region in the Finals stage. Their participation in the FFWS 2022 will be their first appearance in the World Series.
Fans can expect a weekend of gripping action as ALPHA and INFINITY.VX will join the world’s top teams battle in Thailand. Both ALPHA and INFINITY.VX now are ready for the challenge to leave their mark on the competition and make the MENA region proud.
FFWS 2022 Bangkok will be divided into two stages: the Play-ins and the Finals, with both comprising eight matches. The stages will alternate between the maps of Bermuda, Kalahari, Purgatory, and for the first time in the World Series, Alpine, which features an arctic biome remarkably different from the other 3 maps.
At the end of each round, the teams will receive points based on their ranking and elimination. For each elimination, the team will secure 1 point. If any team wins a BOOYAH!, the team will obtain 12 points, followed by 9 points for second place and 8 points for third. In case of a tie, the team with more BOOYAH!s wins the tie-breaker.
