The Asia and Oceana-specific eSports tournament looks to find “rising talent” in the Dota 2 and CS:GO scenes with the ROG Masters, offering a total prize pool of $200k.

The tournament will hold five different regional events for Oceana, East Asia, Southeast Asia, China and the rest of Asia (ROA). The qualifiers will run from September through October, with the top two teams from each region meeting at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on November 12th and 13th in the Grand Finals. Details for broadcast of the ROG Masters were not included in the announcement, though a section to watch livestreams is on the event’s website.

Interested teams are urged to register between now and September 4th, with complete details available at the ROG Masters website.

Our Thoughts

Asia’s eSports scene is easily one of the largest in the world, and a tournament highlighting upcoming talent makes perfect sense to us. We hope that the ROG Masters will end up being every bit as big and exciting as the event coordinators want it to be!
