On the 7th day of April in the year of 2017, ASUS opened its first in Cebu and fourth in the Philippines Republic of Gamers(ROG) concept store in SM City Cebu with special guest Host and FHM Model Ann B. Mateo.
Republic of Gamers or simply ROG is a brand founded by ASUS for the sole purpose of delivering the most innovative hardware dedicated for gamers. Since 2006, Republic of Gamers has been committed to producing the most innovative hardcore PC performance hardware, allowing the ultimate computing experience for gamers and enthusiasts in the world.
During the launch
There was the ribbon cutting followed by the blessing and raining down of coins and candies, as a sign of good luck for the success of the new store. It was mainly attended by people of Republic of Gamers, the media and of course the end users: gamers and enthusiasts. With the special presence of Ms. Ann Mateo, there where lots of attendees and passerby who took the opportunity to have their photos with her.
They also held a mini tournament for the media and the end-users to participate in and have the opportunity to win ROG-limited edition items. Among the media category(where we played LEFT4DEAD with Ann Mateo) TEAM LECHE FLAN(which is composed of our friends from SirusGaming) emerged victorious. Other team participants were TEAM C3(which is composed of my friends from Cebu Blogging Community) and TEAM NONAME(my team with otheer friends from the blogging community). There was also a Marvel VS Capcom 3 Tournament, in which I luckily won. It was indeed a fun-filled event where the company and its end-users could interact.
