The Road to Masters

Since the start of the Singapore Qualifier, Team One Time Wonder from CS:GO and Team ABC from Dota 2 have put on impressive gameplay throughout their matches from the knockout rounds to the grand finals, thus making them the favourites of many fans who have caught the livestream of the qualifier matches on ASUS Singapore Facebook Page and ROG Singapore Twitch Channel.


In preparation for their matches in the Asia-Pacific Regional Qualifiers, Team One Time Wonder and Team ABC will be undergoing dedicated training sessions starting in October till they depart for the regional finals.

ROG Masters Asia-Pacific Regional Qualifiers


Following next in the road to masters, the Asia-Pacific region will be hosting an offline qualifier at SMX Convention Centre, Manila, Philippines from 26 – 29 October, featuring 12 teams per game title which had found success in the Open Qualifiers from each of the participating countries like Singapore - this is where the best from the Asia-Pacific will be crowned, proceeding to the regional finals.

Making the ROG Masters – Singapore Qualifier Possible
ROG is constantly working towards engaging the local gaming scene through activities and exclusive collaborations to deepen its interaction with the e-Sports community. The ROG Masters 2017 – Singapore Qualifier Grand Finals which was held at the STGCC at Marina Bay Sands would not have been a success without the support from STGCC, the official venue partner and MyRepublic, the official network provider for the event.

“We are extremely honoured to host the Singapore Finals for ROG Masters this year, and would like to thank our partner ASUS and Gam3.Asia for making this happen. e-Sports has come a long way and is slowly gaining recognition as a legitimate form of sports, and Singapore has no shortage of talents in this area. We, at GGXP, believe that Singapore has what it takes to make an impression at e-Sports on the global stage,” said Karen Leong, Project Director for STGCC, Reed Exhibitions Singapore.

“We are really thankful to have this opportunity to work with STGCC as we are very honoured and delighted to be able to hold the ROG Masters 2017 – Singapore Finals here at this amazing event. At ROG, we believe in not just to build a brand for ROG, but what we want is to build a community around it, which STGCC did very well in doing so. We look forward to deepen our ROG presence and engagement with the local gaming communities through more ROG activities,” said Emma Ou, Country Manager, ASUS Singapore.
