Dreamhack Masters at the MGM Grand and Garden Arena in Las Vegas is going down from February 15-19. ROG is ecstatic to be the main sponsor of DreamHack Masters Las Vegas, an eSports competition that pits 16 of the world’s best CS:GO teams against each other in an epic battle for the title, glory, and $450,000 in cash prizes. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. ROG is also teaming up with the reigning champions from Dreamhack Masters Malmö last year: NiP (Ninjas in Pyjamas) - one of the largest gaming organizations in the world!
NiP is widely-known for their success in CS:GO (Counter-Strike: Global Offensive), thus the reason why they may also be referred to as The Royal Family of Counter-Strike. In addition to CS supremecy, NiP has found success in other games, such as the tremendously popular Overwatch, and they recently forged a formidable new Dota 2 team.
ROG is proud to have such an elite team at the top of their game using our latest gaming technology.
"We’re very excited to join forces with NIP and to supply them with the latest ROG gear. ROG products provide the highest levels of performance, quality and stability – they are the ultimate choice of champions. Our cutting-edge ROG products, together with the talented members of the NIP, are a winning combination!" - Derek Yu, ROG Global Marketing Director.
