Garena Free Fire’s Free Fire Asia All-Stars 2020 tournament took place over the weekend and, unsurprisingly, drew in an impressive number of viewers. The online-only tournament featured pros and top influencers from across India, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Online streams of the matches totalled 20+ million when counting official and partner channels across YouTube, Facebook, and BOOYAH!.
The streams featured local shoutcasters in 4 languages, which served to highlight Garena’s approach to highly localised esports and live service content.
The Influencer All-Stars tournament kicked off on June 12th, with Thailand’s Savage putting on a great show and outplaying 11 rival teams to claim victory.
The team included YouTubers Cake XI, GuyNa, JASMINNIIIZ, and SACOOL CH. They amassed a grand total of 183 points and two Booyahs from six matches, claiming $8,000 for their efforts.
The Pros All-Stars followed on June 13th. Thailand’s Xavier Esports dominated by putting in a consistent performance, ranking third in almost all of their games. The one exception was the team’s fourth match, where they earned a Booyah and bagged themselves $12,000. Wisdom Esports came in at a fairly distant second place, with 63 points separating the two.
