ROG Masters Growing the Esports Scene
ROG Masters 2017 is sadly over, but at least we got some great games to view live at KLCC earlier this December. A monumental success for not only ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG), this was an achievement for Malaysia as a whole. With what can be deemed a successful event, we can see our our local community growing with the help of brands like ASUS ROG with their great hardware and support with hosting or sponsoring esports events.
I dunno about everyone else, but seeing these games live is so much better than on a streaming platform at home, so a huge thanks are in order to ASUS ROG for bringing many high tier teams into Malaysia for our viewing pleasure. Our congratulations are also in order to Gambit Gaming and Team Empire for becoming the Champions of ROG Masters 2017 and showing us some very entertaining games, all of which you read about in our summarized break down of the Grand Finals.
Now for a little bit more information from Derek Yu, ROG Strategic Division Director and Global Marketing Senior Director, on ROG Masters:
“From the inaugural year’s APAC-only tournament to this year’s worldwide events, ROG Masters has been incredibly successful in enabling seasoned pros and rising amateurs from all corners of the world to make their aspirations a reality and live their esports dreams. ROG Masters 2017 featured overwhelming participation, with over 6,000 teams competing — ten times more than the previous year — in a series of events hosted in over 35 countries across Europe, the Americas and Asia. It’s truly a testament to our shared enthusiasm with the community and the brand’s commitment to esports.”
