ASUS ROG Stars Invite
The ASUS ROG Stars Invite is a $10,000 eight-players invitational tournament organized by ASUS ROG Tournaments on November, 2011 in Helsinki, Finland.
The ASUS ROG Stars Invite is an eight-players invitational tournament which was held in the Helsinki Exhibition & Convention Centre, during the DigiExpo. The event was broadcasted in Finnish, and in English by Apollo and TotalBiscuit, and featured five showmatches the day after the finals.
In August we had the luxury of enjoying first class StarCraft II action in Finland with the help of ASUS ROG (Republic of Gamers). The partnership that was established in the summer of 2011 brings us another StarCraft II tournament now in November - ASUS ROG Stars Invite.
ASUS ROG Stars Invite will be played at the largest consumer electronics trade fair in the Nordic Counties. Last year it had over 60 000 visitors coming to Helsinki Exhibition & Convention Centre to see the latest gadgets, games and consumer electronics. This year the visitors will have more to see when ASUS ROG Stars Invite will be played at the ASUS ROG E-Sports Stage.
ASUS ROG Stars Invite is a fully invitational tournament. Eight top players from around the world will be competing to get a slice of the whooping 10,000 USD prize pool. Players will be invited based on their results and performance in StarCraft II. To promote Finland and light up the crowd one Finnish player will be invited.
You can witness the top matches at DigiExpo or from free HD streams. Main shoutcasting will be done by a pair that will leave none of us cold. The main show by these shoutcasters will totally knock of a few hats in the audience at the expo and at home. For Finnish viewers SETT TV will shoutcast all the matches in Finnish.
