Asus India has announced the introduction of the Asus Ultimate Boss Fight, an online gaming tournament that marks the launch of the new generation Asus ROG Strix Scar gaming laptop. As part of the tournament, gamers will go through multiple rounds to vie for the top prize of Rs 1,00,000 in cash, as well as the opportunity to face off against celebrity professional esports gamer, HydraFlick. The latter will be the key attraction of the gaming tournament, and will be the final hurdle for all aspiring contestants. The Asus Ultimate Boss Fight has already opened registrations, and the tournament will run from April 3rd through April 8th.
The Asus Ultimate Boss Fight featuring HydraFlick comes with a prize pool of Rs 1,75,000. The competition will give the final round’s winning team a cash prize of Rs 1,00,000. Other prizes include a cash reward of Rs 50,000 for the play-off winner, and Rs 25,000 for the play-off runner-up. According to the company, the tournament will select a total of 64 teams, based on a first come, first serve basis. The tournament’s added zing is in the final round – while the winner will walk away with the title and the cash reward, the losing finalist of the Ultimate Boss Fight, which could be either the competing team or even HydraFlick himself, will have to change their signature gaming alias from all social handles (barring YouTube).
The Asus Ultimate Boss Fight gaming tournament will work in team matches, and all professional and enthusiast gamers are welcomed to participate. The tournament will work in a 5v5 team match format. Arnold Su, business head of Asus India’s consumer and gaming PCs, stated upon the announcement, “We recently introduced the ROG Strix series in India and have received an overwhelming response. We have always aimed to empower gaming enthusiasts and creators with the best personal experience when it comes to gaming. The Ultimate Boss Fight – an online tournament further adds to the thrill and provides another opportunity like ROG Showdown and ROG Master for the gaming community to collaborate and engage in meaningful experiences that will help them refine their skill further.”
The tournament has already opened registrations for gamers, and the competition is expected to open starting Saturday, April 3.
