ASUS Announces the ROG Masters 2016 Gaming Tournament
ASUS Republic of Gamers is undeniably the top gaming brand around. They have been supportive on the eSport scene even before gaming became mainstream. Now they are announcing another milestone to help empower the eSport scene in the Philippines, The ROG Masters 2016 Gaming Tournament.
The Tournament is now open for registrations for both DOTA 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) starting August 30, 2016 until September 9, 2016. It is pegged to be one of the largest eSport tournament in Asia with a grand prize amounting to USD 200,000 for the world championship, and PHP 115,000 for local qualifiers. You can register your teams at the ROG Masters Philippine qualifiers microsite (http://rog-masters.ph/).
Online and on-ground qualifiers will take place for each game. From every qualifier, top teams will advance to local LAN finals which will happen in a premier gaming hub around Metro Manila on either September 17 or September 18, 2016.
The top 2 teams of Philippine qualifiers for both DOTA 2 and CS:GO will get a slot in quarter finals alongside with other Asia qualifiers. Moreover, the other teams who will not qualify from Philippine qualifiers, can still participate in Southeast Asia (SEA) qualifiers by completing the team registration on the ROG Masters official site (https://www.rog-masters.com/en/region/sea).
“The Philippine eSports scene is starting to get really exciting day-by-day. Few months ago, we partnered with the Professional Gamers’ League (PGL) in mounting the world’s biggest DOTA 2 tournament series in country which is the Manila Major. And look, here we are now creating our own incredible gaming tournaments that aims to empower rising talents and future eSports local superstars as early as today,” shares George Su, Country Manager of ASUS Philippines System Business Group.
