ASUS’ ROG Masters return this 2017, will feature Dota 2 and CS:GO with a prize pool of USD 500,000
Looks like the republic is cooking up something big for Esports fans.
The ROG Masters is back and it looks to be bigger than ever as ASUS, the computer hardware manufacturing giant known largely for their line of Motherboards and Video Cards, and as well as Laptops, and their gaming sub-brand Republic of Gamers announce the ROG Masters 2017.
Still showcasing Dota 2 and Counter Strike: Global Offensive as the official game titles for the tournament, this year’s ROG Masters is bigger, as what we’ve initially stated, in terms of prize pool, as each game title will feature a prize pot of USD 250,000 giving the combined prize pool of USD 500,000.
The tournament will be divided into 4 phases, with the first qualifier rounds to be held in 4 regions, Americas, Asia-Pacific, China and EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) with sign-ups to open up soon for each country under each of the qualifier regions via the official ROG Masters website. After the open qualifier rounds for each participating country are done, the country winners will then face each other to determine the regional open qualifier champions, with each champ to then face the other invited teams per region in the Regional Finals, with the Regional Finals winners to then face each other in the Grand Finals happening later this year.
The first wave of qualifiers is said to happen sometime this early June so for interested participants, we advise that you all be on the look out and keep tabs on the ROG Masters website from time-to-time for any new updates.
