Now on its second year, ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today formally announced the ROG Masters 2017 esports tournament.
The tournament will feature over 20 top professional teams from across the globe and offer a prize pool of US $500,000.
The ROG Masters is an esports tournament created for aspiring gamers everywhere. The dual DOTA 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) tournament has grown significantly in scale and ambition, and with this almost unprecedented reach, ROG Masters 2017 is set to raise the intensity of the competition and take the DOTA 2 and CS:GO scene by storm.
Commencing in June 2017, teams from every corner of the globe will battle it out in a series of 30 country qualifiers and four regional qualifiers (EMEA, Americas, APAC, and China). The winners of these open qualifiers will then take on the might of invited professional teams from each of the four regions, fighting for a place in the Grand Finals in November, 2017.
In a press statement, ASUS Philippines Systems Group Country Manager, George Su, states:
For over a decade ROG has been committed to providing the most innovative hardware to gamers worldwide, and last year we offered the gaming community an opportunity to live their esports dream by launching the first-ever ROG Masters. Thanks to extremely positive feedback, ROG Masters returns this year as a global affair, inviting pro teams and amateur players from over over 30 countries across five continents.
We are not only proud of our commitment to creating the ultimate gaming experience with leading hardware and world-class esports tournaments, but also of our solid global network and local presence, which enables us to realize an esports event on such a scale. ROG Masters 2017 is a momentous milestone for ROG and esports, and we are excited to be part of the driving force for esports at large.
