  • Four continental open qualifiers and 30 national qualifiers will start in May 2017, allowing entries from all corners of the globe

Taipei, Taiwan, May 31, 2017 - ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) announced ROG Masters 2017 today. Now a worldwide event due to feature over 20 pro teams from across the globe, the dual Dota 2 and CS:GO tournament has grown significantly in scale and ambition. After open qualifiers take place worldwide, the professionals will clash with the best of the grassroots for a US$500,000 prize pool. 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 scenes by storm.

Commencing in May 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.

ROG Marketing Director, Derek Yu, 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 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 be part of the driving force for esports at large,” added Yu.
