Re­pub­lic of Gamers PAX West 2018 Highlights

From new hard­ware to ROG’s Join the re­pub­lic chal­lenge


It was a busy four days for the Re­pub­lic of Gamers (ROG) team at PAX West 2018. Its metic­u­lously struc­tured booth, com­plete with gam­ing sta­tions and prod­uct demos, was filled with cu­ri­ous gamers through­out the four-day event. Gamers were greeted with hands-on demos of ROG’s up­com­ing gam­ing hard­ware, and were given the chance to win great prizes. Af­ter pass­ing rig­or­ous tri­als, the fi­nal mem­bers of Team NA were re­cruited through the Join the Re­pub­lic com­mu­nity chal­lenge. The Join the Re­pub­lic chal­lenge lets ev­ery­day gamers duke it out for the op­por­tu­nity to go pro and com­pete against some of the best es­ports play­ers out there. Team NA’s cap­tain, the vet­eran CS:GO player Erik Flom, per­son­ally bat­tletested his new­est mem­bers at the ROG eS­ports Desk. In time, his team will rep­re­sent North Amer­ica and com­pete against seven oth­ers at the Re­pub­lic CS:GO Fi­nals in Swe­den.

Fol­low­ing the suc­cess­ful con­clu­sion to team Fl0m’s re­cruit­ment, ROG opened up the eS­ports booth to the pub­lic. Gamers were in­vited to par­tic­i­pate in in­tense Fort­nite ses­sions on the same bleed­ing-edge hard­ware used by the pros.

The ROG booth also saw daily give­aways. Prizes ranged from ac­tion fig­ures and gam­ing gear, to knick­knacks and ac­ces­sories. The hype driven by gamers was im­pres­sive, but ROG also added ex­cite­ment of its own through the pre­sen­ta­tion of a slew of its up­com­ing gam­ing hard­ware. These ranged from phones, to lap­tops, to RGB-in­fused cool­ers.
