Garena has now announced its first online-only esports tournament in Asia. Free Fire Asia All-Stars 2020 is set to take place from the 12 to the 13th of June, and it'll feature top streamers and professional players from across India, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam. They'll all face off against one another in intense battle for their slice of an $80,000 prize pool.
Fans can view all the action online from the comfort of their homes, with commentary from local casters available in multiple languages. It will be split into two separate events: the Influencer All-Stars and the Pros All-Stars. The former will take place on June 12th, while the latter is set for June 13th.
In the Influencer All-Stars, 12 teams will compete for a prize pool of $30,000. Each of the 4 regions will be represented by 3 teams, comprised of a mix of pros and influencers. The Pros All-Stars will feature the top 3 pro teams from each of the participating regions, and they'll all be duking it over a $50,000 prize pool.
The tournament format for both days will be the same, with 6 playable rounds split across 3 maps: Bermuda, Purgatory, and Kalahari. Points are awarded based on a team's round ranking and total kill count. A win is worth 20 points, while each kill will net the team 2 points.
