Moroccan esports team, Warriors in Mask (WASK), is set to represent the nation at the 2022 Free Fire World Series (FFWS) which kicks off in Sentosa, Singapore from May 14 to 21.
The World Series is set to see 22 teams from across the globe compete for the title of Free Fire World champions as well as the $2 million prize money.
WASK, formerly known as MCES Africa, is one of Morocco’s many esports competitive teams. With back-to-back wins in the Free Fire Arab League cups, the team’s latest achievement came last month with a win in Tier 2 of the Free Fire Arab League Season 5 which saw them bring home a cash prize of $17,600.
In an interview with Morocco World News, WASK’s founder and CEO, Tarik Belghazi, spoke about the challenges his team faced along the way saying that the path to the world series was like “climbing a rough mountain without any safety tools.”
Tarik however revealed his joy to represent Morocco on an international scale and thanked the Moroccans that gave the team their love and support.
The WASK CEO was pleased to learn that the team’s technical and tactical skills were recognized to the point of competing on an international level at the Free Fire events. Belghazi prefers to adhere to the Moroccan spirit, which is to “work hard in silence, and to leave our [team’s] success to speak for us.”
