It has been an epic journey for PLG and all the participants that took part in the ASUS ROG Masters. With the top teams in the UAE and KSA battling it out in their respective qualifiers, it was just a great pleasure for us and the viewers to witness the progress of their favorite teams as they make their way towards the ASUS ROG Masters Middle East Qualifiers!
It all started with the first ASUS ROG KSA qualifiers that took place at Gamesnet Café in Jeddah where we hosted a Dota 2 and CSGO Qualifier. Only one team from each game qualifies to the ASUS ROG Middle East Finals that took place in Dubai but the Top 3 teams of the qualifiers were eligible for the 10,000 Saudi Riyal Prize Pool so no one really goes home empty handed. We were honored to see Saudi Teams, Smash It Doto (Champion of Dota 2 KSA Qualifier) and Archnemisis (Champion of CSGO KSA Qualifier) to represent the Kingdom against the UAE Champions in the Middle Eastern Finals to qualify to the ASUS ROG Masters International Tournament with a total prize pool of $500,000!
Facing the KSA Champions are UAE Teams that made it through at the ASUS ROG Masters UAE Qualifiers that took place at HUB ZERO. The teams are 5 Shades of Noob (Runner-up of Dota 2 UAE Qualifier) and Team NASR eSports (Champion of CSGO UAE Qualifiers). Team 5 Shades of Noob was the team to step up and represent the UAE in the Middle Eastern Finals after the Top team of the Dota 2 Qualifiers, Team Shalagaat was not able to make it due to unforeseen circumstances.
We would like to congratulate NASR eSports and Smash It Doto for coming out victorious against their respective opponents: Archnemisis and 5 Shades of Noob. It was an amazing clash between all 4 teams and a great conclusion to this story.
