Asus Republic of Gamers Invade Manila Major

If you’re dropping by the biggest eSport event in Philippine history, The Dota 2 Manila Majors, you might want to check out ASUS’ Republic of Gamers experience booth on the 2nd floor.

ASUS is showcasing their latest wares that are battle-tested for gamers – from Star Wars-looking Router, to Strix Mice to the wallet-busting, quarter-of-a-million-peso gaming towers (the new GT51 that was recently featured at our sister site, Unbox.ph)  and compact (but powerful) gaming notebooks.

Behold, the awesome power of my router!

Sooo purty!

Instead of simply creating a showcase booth, in true blue gaming fashion, ASUS Republic of Gamers crafted a quirky experience area where geeks of all kind get to test their products AND get their nerd-cred tested as well.

You start by registering and getting a passport.

You know where this is going

You know where this is going

Each activity that you do will earn you a stamp. Each stamp gets you a freebie and once you finish everything you’re rewarded with even bigger prizes.

Merch, merch, merch, merch

Shirts, lanyard, mousepads and um I have no idea what that red thing is called. 😀

But sure freebies are fun and all but you actually can get a little something better if you do amazingly well per challenge! What are these geeky challenges you say? Welp…

For those who claim to belong to the PC Master Race, here’s the chance to prove your tech knowledge with ASUS ROG’s Build a PC challenge. Yes, you actually get to build a Rig!

For more mind-twisting fun, there’s also ASUS ROG’s Break the Code challenge which I’m still figuring out what to do exactly. So if you have any idea on what that thing is, please TELL ME! :'(

You get to win THIS in ASUS ROG’s Break the Code game

If you crack the code, you get the peripheral inside the cage! AND I WANT IT! So please FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, tell me how to break that damn code!!! 😀

All in all, ASUS ensures that you get your Manila Major experience fully realized! Visit them during the games’ down time and who knows you might walk out of the venue with a free peripheral or two.  Drop by the 2nd floor of Mall of Asia Arena, register, and Join the Republic!
