ASUS have revealed their ROG Winter 2019 CS:GO event featuring ~$14,300 in prize winnings.
Contrary to previous versions of ASUS ROG, this edition of the event has been limited to six participants in a bid to bring each match to the stage, making for an easier viewing experience for both the audience on-site and those watching at home.
The event will take place during the Assembly Winter 2019 festival at the Helsinki Exhibition and Convention Centre on the weekend of February 1-2. The format will feature a single-elimination, best-of-3 playoffs bracket.
Two of the six participants will be decided via open qualifiers available exclusively to Finnish teams. Said qualifiers will take place on January 13 and January 14, meanwhile the remaining four slots will be filled by teams issued direct invites to the event.
