A Professional World-Class Tournament
This year, from June through November, a new and epic chapter in the ROG MASTERS journey plays out. In 2017 the cross-continent tournament will encompass more than 30 countries, bringing top-tier talent and renowned pro squads in CS:GO and Dota 2. In this phase of the qualifiers, the best teams from the Philippines will split the Philippine Qualifiers Prize Pool of P200,000.00 and their slots in the Regional Qualifiers.
And finally, last August 20,2017, the GG has been called. Team Execration, one of our competitor on the last DOTA2 The International (TI), dominates and won the battle against Team Entity Gaming.
It was a good fight indeed! The finals was a Best-of-3 game, means the first team to score 2 points will win the game. Team execration won the first match with a score of 35-23.
While on the second game, team Entity ruled and dominates the match with a score of 38-13.
So it was a 1-1 score for both teams during the final match, it’s hard to predict who will win because Execration shows strength and coordination on the first match while Entity proves that they can overtake their opponent on the second match. Team Entity leads the first half of the third game but Team Execration has find their way to takeover until they have surpass the gap and won on the latter part.
While on the CS:GO, Team Mineski won over the Team Rekt on the final rounds having a score of 2-0 in a Best-of-3 game match.
The Mineski team shows very good tactics when it comes to going over their opponents. They can easily kill each Rekt’s player without loosing too much of their team. This just show their real expertise on the CS:GO game.
Both team, Mineski and Execration, will be our representatives on the upcoming ROG Masters 2017 Worldwide which consist of different teams from Asia-Pacific, EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa), America, and China. What more exciting is that, the said tournament was proudly announced my George Su, country manager of Asus PH, that it will be held here in the Philippines this coming October 2017.
Aside from those main events, the venue was filled with lots of gaming booths showcasing the power of different ROG laptops and desktops. All participants are given their own passport for each game booths then they will be given a stamp after finishing the game.
Each stamp collected can be converted into different ROG merchandises and an entry for the grand raffle of a ROG gaming laptop.
To give more entertainment and to break the hype, the band Rivermaya serenade the crowd with their famous songs.
The event was also filled with different known personalities like Ann Mateo, Master Senpai, Gloco, and of course Cong of CongTV.
After all, I can say that this 2-day event was indeed successful. The audience are filled with different gaming experience and they have witnessed a very good fight between each teams on the grand finals.
