ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has formally announced the ROG Masters 2017 e-sports tournament. It will feature over 20 top professional teams from across the globe and offer a prize pool of US $500,000. There are two tournaments involved: the popular DOTA 2 and the classic Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO.)
Starting this June, 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.
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.”
