Eight teams will be locking horns to determine the season three champions.
The CoD Mobile Garena Masters III Playoffs are set to happen from Aug. 12 to 14. Eight of Southeast Asia’s best teams will be locking horns for a share of the $25,000 prize pool. Additionally, the winner will secure a slot at the Regional Qualifier: Stage 4, where they will have a shot at making it to the CoD: Mobile World Championship Finals 2022.
The CoD Mobile Garena Masters III kicked off on July 17 with 16 teams competing. After a long group stage, only eight teams are left.
First LAN event for CoD: Mobile Esports in Southeast Asia in over two years
Call of Duty: Mobile was released in October 2019 and announced an esports championship in 2020. The timing for this wasn’t ideal, though, as the pandemic struck and disrupted a lot of the game’s esports plans.
Garena organized the first LAN event for CoD Mobile in SEA way back in March 2020. Here, four Filipino teams battled it out from Manila in the Philippines National Championship 2020.
Now, CoD: Mobile action is again returning to Manila as the eight teams will compete from Newport World Resorts to crown the champion of the CoD Mobile Garena Masters III.
CoD Mobile Masters III: Playoffs, format and teams
The eight teams who have qualified for the playoffs are as follows:
- ALMGHTY (Singapore)
- C8 Legacy (Philippines)
- Smart Omega (Philippines)
- RTL Esports (Philippines)
- WPM Lowkings (Philippines)
- Blacklist Ultimate (Philippines)
- Huntsman (Malaysia)
