NCGC Dominates Special Force ROG Champions League 2017
Powered by ROG Net Shop, troopers assembled for the Special Force ROG Champions League held at the METS 2017 three-day event. In the Qualifier last August 9th, participants came from different locations such as Digos, Kidapawan, Davao, and GenSan.

The first eliminations saw DavaoDeathForce vs FoetwentyV2 and NCGC vs DavaDeathForce2 with both match ending with 2-0 sweep in a best of 3 series. With the SFPC Mindanao Champions Team Foetwenty in attendance, a close match ensued against Team Ranger. Unfortunately, the Mindanao Champs didn’t have enough luck to win against Team Ranger with a 2-1 score. The very last round saw a 7-7 score with a 2-vs-1 situation with Foetwenty’s captain Jap- on the short end of the stick. Team Ranger advanced to the Semifinals against NCGC.

Foetwenty V2, sister team of the SFPC Mindanao Champions, made it to the Semifinals and up against Team Maximus. Again, like their brothers-in-arms, a close match ended with a 2-1 score, a win for Foetwenty V2, and tickets to the Finale last August 11th.

The Special Force ROG Champions League Finale saw a gruesome battle between Team NCGC and Team Foetwenty V2. However, JSN_Jaaaaaay, MABINNNNNNNN, /D/A/A/N/E, UtoyGanja and KieshaMiel of NCGC successfully dominated the finale ending the battle with a 2-0 sweep in the best of 3 series.

They went home with exclusive Special Force Online merchandise, and a sweet Php 12,500.00 CASH prize on top of in-game items.
