ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the sponsorship of two League of Legends® (LoL) professional gaming teams, Taipei Assassins (TPA) and Taipei Snipers (TPS), in competing on the international stage.

TPA is an elite team consisting of a group of top players that competes in various LoL competitions. TPA came in first in LoL’s Season Two World Championship, held in Los Angeles, USA, in October 2012. In May 2014, the team represented South East Asia, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau in the LoL All-Star Challenge held in Paris, France. TPS, the sister team of TPA, came in second in the Garena Premier League (GPL) 2013 Winter Season, and third in 2013 Asian Indoor-Martial Arts Games.

The new cooperation between ROG, TPA and TPS, is intended to shine a light on Taiwan’s outstanding gaming talent and hardware prowess and its ability to achieve outstanding results on the world stage. ROG is a longtime supporter of gaming teams and their participation in gaming tournaments worldwide, with ROG gaming gear the preferred choice for many of the world’s best games-players.

Commenting on ROG’s latest sponsorship, TPA captain BeBe said: “The range of ROG gaming accessories not only has powerful performance, its smooth rendering and stability are also stunning. Team members will be fearless against strong opponents from around the world, and able to wipe out the enemies first. This is also one of the most important reasons why we chose ASUS ROG as our comrade.”

The VG248QE supports NVIDIA® 3D Vision® 2 and features ASUS-exclusive GamePlus with crosshair and timer functions.

ROG’s gamer battalion also relies on the Maximus VII Hero Z97 motherboard for the best performance and gaming features. Exclusive LANGuard and GameFirst III networking technologies ensure a smooth internet connection that banishes lag, while exclusive SupremeFX 2014 delivers precision-engineered audio that’s as great as a dedicated sound card. Sonic Radar II technology helps ROG’s sharp-shooting squad to pinpoint enemies on the battlefield. Maximus VII Hero also has exclusive KeyBot technologies for an instant keyboard upgrade.
