ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) gathered some of the best e-sports players for both CS:GO and DOTA 2 in the country. The ROG Masters 2017 Philippine Qualifiers started in June and ended last August 19-20, 2017 in SM Cyberzone, SM City North EDSA.
Mineski CS:GO team finished off the finals with a back-to-back win from last year. They took the first game at glance against Rekt E-sports with 16-6 score and bagged Php 75,000.00 cash prize at the end of second game. During the semi-finals, Rekt E-sports turned down the Wargods while Mineski eliminated Fractals. Mineski was able to secure a spot in ROG Masters 2017 regional finals and will battle against Asia’s finest CS:GO players.
The DOTA 2 tournament quickly passed as a 2-0 score consistently turned out every game. Entity Gaming defeated Happy Feet during the first round of the competition and Execration was crowned as the next ROG Masters DOTA 2 Grand Champions. They grabbed the top spot after winning against Imperium in a 2-0 battle winning the first game of the ROG Masters 2017 Philippine finals with ease.
The ROG Masters 2017 Philippine Finals is an exciting 2-day event for gamers. Gamers and e-sports enthusiasts witnessed the battle of the bests and got to experience the latest ROG machines in the experiential area. It was also filled with fun activities and giveaways for the end-users. Items like ROG’s eleven Godlike items that include gaming monitors, mouse, keyboards, DOTA 2 Arcana, motherboard, graphics card and the powerful ROG gaming laptop as grand prize were given away during the event. Gaming personalities and ASUS ROG ambassador Ann Mateo also joined the event and participated in some of the activities. One of my favorite Pinoy band, Rivermaya, rocked the event with songs like Elesi, Awit ng Kabataan and Olats.
