Asus Republic of Gamers or ROG will be hosting its ROG Masters Asia Pacific Esports tournament from March to April 2021. The Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) tournament will be held online due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. The tournament’s quarterfinal, semifinal and final matches will also be live-streamed on the Asus ROG Facebook page and YouTube channel.
The Asus ROG Masters tournament will feature teams from 15 regions including Australia, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam. The tournament will be played in three stages. These will be the country qualifiers, the country finals and the Asia Pacific finals.
During the country qualifiers, professional teams from across the region will be automatically placed in seeded positions in the country finals. This will allow non-professional, enthusiast teams a larger opportunity to play against pro teams in the country finals.
