ASUS ROG Announces Gaming Peripheral Partnership with NRG Esports

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced a partnership with NRG, the legendary esports organization whose top-tier pro gamers have won awards and championships around the world with their play in Apex Legends, VALORANT, Rocket League and more. This year, NRG will have one of only five teams from North America participating in the exclusive VALORANT Champions Tour. Millions of followers have viewed their content over two billion times across TikTok, Twitter, YouTube and other social media. ROG has sponsored NRG teams before and will be sponsoring them once again this year, this time with premium gaming gear including keyboards, mice, headsets and mousepads from its own award-winning arsenal.

ROG is committed to gamers and the gaming community, and peripherals are critical factors to esports performance. With innovative tech built into its latest gaming gear, ROG is combining forces with the elite NRG teams to help pro players perform even better, creating a win-win scenario. The esports-focused peripherals that NRG will receive include the ROG Falchion Ace gaming keyboard, ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition gaming mouse, ROG Delta S Wireless gaming headset and the ROG Hone Ace Aim Lab Edition mouse pad.

"In 2017, ROG took a chance on little NRG Esports and signed up to be our exclusive desktop, laptop, and monitor provider,” said NRG CEO Andy Miller. “It is so gratifying to fast forward five plus years as two powerhouse gaming brands reconnect. We are excited to partner with ROG to bring our players and fans the very best in competitive gaming peripherals." NRG Chief of Staff Jaime Cohenca added, “NRG and our vast roster of esports athletes are thrilled to be working with ROG. We're honored to work with such a prestigious brand to power our programs across VALORANT, Rocket League, Apex Legends and more."

In response to this news, Sam "s0m" Oh, an NRG VALORANT pro player who stood out in his first national VALORANT debut at VCT 2023: LOCK//IN said, "Peripherals are key when competing at the height of esports. I can't wait to work with ROG to bring our performance to the next level."

Kris Huang, General Manager of the ROG Gaming Gear and Accessory Business Unit, stated, “It is our pleasure to partner with the top-tier esports team NRG. We are confident that our esports-focused peripherals will help players achieve great performances on global stages this year. Together with NRG, which already has a highly engaged fan base, we hope to bring ROG peripherals to more gamers around the world.”
