ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has announced a two-year partnership with international gaming developer and publisher MOONTON Games, with the aim of enhancing the global gaming experience and optimizing the performance of the ROG Phone series for tournament usage.
Since 2022, the ROG Phone team has been collaborating closely with MOONTON for the Malaysia Professional League, and now they are expanding their partnership on a global scale. The collaboration will include four Mobile Legends: Bang Bang international esports tournaments: the Southeast Asia Cup 2023 and 2024, as well as the M-Series World Championships M5 and M6. The goal of the partnership is to elevate esports and provide gamers with top-tier content and an exceptional gaming experience.
In preparation for the upcoming Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup 2023, ROG will preload the MLBB application on the ROG Phone 7 series. Additionally, an MLBB theme pack will be made available, allowing fans to enjoy better access to the game on the latest ROG Phone and celebrate the event with an MLBB-themed interface setup.
Alexis Wong, MOONTON Games Regional Sales and Business Development Lead for Esports Division, expressed excitement about the collaboration, stating that it promises to offer MLBB gamers an unparalleled esports and gaming content consumption experience.
Shawn Chang, ASUS Global Sales and Marketing Director of Phone Business Unit, highlighted the commitment of ROG to provide phones with cutting-edge features that enhance the MLBB gaming experience and take esports tournaments to the next level. The ROG Phone 7 Series boasts game-winning features, including the powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform, advanced GameCool 7 thermal system, and special ROG tuning, ensuring a breathtaking mobile gaming experience with impressive power efficiency.
The MSC 2023 event, which will be held in June in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, marks the first collaboration between ROG and MOONTON. The tournament will make history by including new teams from outside Southeast Asia, including North America, MENA (Middle East and North Africa), and Turkey.
