2 days left to register for Asus' Dota 2 and CS:GO tournament
MANILA, Philippines – The Asus Republic of Gamers (ROG) Masters 2016 Gaming Tournament kicks off Saturday, September 17, with a series of national qualifiers in participating Southeast Asian (SEA) countries.
The Masters hosts tourneys for two games, Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), culminating in the world finals on November 12 and 13 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The prize pool? $150,000 for Dota 2 and $50,000 for CS:GO.
Philippine teams have a chance to go for the top prizes by joining the Philippine qualifiers. Interested teams may still apply for the tournament until Friday, September 9, via the official ROG Masters Philippine qualifiers microsite: rog-masters.ph.
From the national qualifiers, two teams each from the Dota 2 and CS:GO tourneys will move on to the SEA regional qualifiers on September 20. From there, two teams from their respective game tournaments will secure a trip to the world finals, representing SEA to wage digital wars against the rest of the world.
The Philippine qualifiers offer incentives too. For Dota 2, the prize pool is P80,000 while CS:GO has P35,000 at stake.
Teams who are not able to hurdle the Philippine qualifiers can still try their luck in the SEA qualifiers by completing the team registration on the ROG Masters official site, which can be accessed here. – Rappler.com
