ASUS ROG Fall 2021 coming on September 17-19

ASUS ROG Tournaments return with an online StarCraft II tournament on September 17-19, 2021, featuring 16 world-class players, and a prize pool of  $15,000 USD and 1,280 EPT points.

It is a great time to be a StarCraft II fan. The title of World Champion has been joinked from South Korea for the second time in history, and the competition is as stiff as ever on international and regional fields. It feels like the global events especially are delivering some of the best StarCraft II matches and storylines in recent years. Despite the still ongoing global pandemic, esports is thriving, and the SC2 scene continues to amaze us. We are lucky to be part of this community, and as fellow SC2 fans it is with great pleasure and pride that we bring you a new global event, ASUS ROG Fall 2021.

ASUS ROG Fall 2021 is held on September 17-19, and it follows the notes of our previous event from last year, ASUS ROG Online 2020. As the pandemic continues and we are not yet able to host offline events, we are happy the previous event proved online ASUS ROG Tournaments can be awesome too! ASUS ROG Fall 2021 will have three days of action in the familiar GSL-style format, and sixteen players competing for the $15,000 USD cash prize. In addition, the tournament will be part of the current ESL Pro Tour, distributing a total of 1,280 EPT points among the sixteen participants!

Half of the 16 competing players will enter the tournament via an invitation, and the other half will enter through open qualifiers. The invitations are based on the EPT rankings on Monday, August 23, with the top four from both World and Korea regions receiving an invite. The qualifiers will be held on August 31 through September 4 on American, European, and Korean servers without region locks. The best three will advance from the American and European servers while the best two will grab a spot from the Korean qualifier.

The main tournament will be broadcasted on in English with the commentary provided by Kevin “RotterdaM” van der Kooi and Benjamin "DeMusliM" Baker. And as always, we welcome the community to provide additional foreign language streams.
