Now things start to get serious. The major league in Brazil comes to the finals after 108 drops played. This Saturday (16), the twelve first places in the regular season of LBFF (Liga Brasileira de Free Fire) will play the finals. To be played in Sentosa, Singapore, Free Fire World Series is back, and the champion and the second of LBFF Finals will play the international tournament. While the champion will play Finals, the second must dispute Play-ins fighting for three places in the Finals.

Crowned as champion in the last edition, B4 shows that the losses of Ruan to Los Grandes, João7, and PROZIN to Nitroxx didn’t affect the team that was able to get the consistency with the new signings, CHINÊS, Lubinha, and Renan22. Yago is the player with the most kills in the regular season, and B4 puts his faith in being champions again on him.

Magic Squad can be considered the surprise of this edition. The team owned by the Brazilian football superstar Ronaldinho Gaúcho, Magic Squad, came from the second league (Série B) and, in his debut in the major league, has only minus four points compared to B4 and conquered 15 Booyahs, the team with most. Does the team get the capability to keep this rhythm in the grand finals?

Los Grandes is back in the title dispute and is also a team to consider to be the champion. Despite the signing of Ruan, the star in the team during the regular season was Gus with 153 kills. On the other hand, LOUD could exit the slow start in the competition and achieve fourth place. In the last World Series, LOUD conquered a second place in the finals, and since then, the team farewelled ViniZx and Brabox, who focused on streaming and creating content for the organization and signed with Lost. Captain Cauan and Lost are the two most feared weapons of the team, with 138 and 137 kills each.

The champions of the first split of 2021, the keyword of Fluxo in all the editions of LBFF is consistency. For this split, Fluxo said goodbye to GODKILL, who joined Magic Squad and signed with one of the revelations and the superstar of Corinthians, OUSADO. MVP and World Champion with Corinthians in World Series of 2019 and owner of Fluxo, Nobru only played one drop in all the regular season. The inevitable young superstar, Syaz, kept his status and was the second player with the most kills in the regular season.

Corinthians suffered some changes in the team but kept the level that used their fans. One of the signings for the new split, Vitinxp, is the player with the most kills, and the history of the team in Free Fire let them dream with the title.

Relegated for the Série B two splits ago, Team Liquid played the last split of 2021 in the second major league in Brazil and failed in his opportunity to come back to the elite of Free Fire. However, in 2022, Team Liquid acquired the SS Esports spot and the players. MVP of the last split, Mts007, is the team's star.

BD Vasco and GOD Unidas are also teams from the Série B and have their space to surprise some title contender team. Cruzeiro has a similar story with Team Liquid, and in his comeback, the traditional football club decided to bet on young talent, and it seems that it was a win for them. Can they dream of something more?

Meta lost their star, lost to LOUD, and was capable of qualifying for the finals, and it’s still unexpected what the team can do in the finals. Last but not least, Vivo Keyd’s place in the regular season can lie about the roster's expectations and quality. The team was champion of the second split of 2021 and the second of the third and last split of the last year. Since then, Vivo Keyd only added KBÇÃO and didn’t lose any of their star players. In that way, underestimating Vivo Keyd in finals could be a huge mistake.

Promotion Series

The last team in the regular season was Liberty so that the organization will play the Série B in the next split. Nitroxx, 00Nation, Real e-Sports, and Netshoes Miners will play the Promotion Series. In this step, four teams from Série A (already mentioned) and eight teams from Série B. The Champion known the last Saturday (9) is paiN and is already qualified for the next stage of LBFF Série A. The remaining teams from Série B that will play in the Promotion are CIVIL E-Sports; TSM; SEVEN TV; Stars Horizon; Tropicaos; FLQ Esports; Xisde and Amazon Cripz.

Free Fire World Series

As already mentioned, the international tournament will start on 14th May in Singapore and unravel the team that succeeds Evo Phoenix as the best team in the world. The team played the last World Series under the tag of Phoenix Force due to a conflict of interests. The organization has two teams, Evo Divine, an Indonesian roster, and Evos Phoenix, a Thai roster – this one was the champion.
