The final four teams for the ROG Masters Philippine Qualifiers have finally made it to the playoffs. After a long and grueling qualifier run since Saturday, they will get the chance to fight for the right to be the country's representative in the Regional Qualifier and take the 75,000php cash prize.
Established CS:GO teams Mineski and Wargods.AG are not foreigners in the competitive scene as this isn't their first foray into LAN competitions. In contrast, FRACTALS and Rekt Esports are new names into the competitive scene. Don't let that fact fool you, though; the team composition isn't exactly new as well. Both teams consist of veteran players from different teams, with only a few members having no experience in the competitive scene. This will surely shake up the competition as soon as the playoffs start on August 19 and 20.

All four of these teams played out some of the best CS:GO in their lives, beating every single opponent they face to get to the semifinals. Dedicated, they'll be doing it their all in order to show their A-game on the main stage.
One of the most intriguing factor here is that all matches will be played out in a best-of-three series, including the Grand Finals. This leaves each team with little-to-no margin of error at all in making plays. EVERY ROUND COUNTS for them. Only the best will come out on top.
The teams are in. The stage is set. Who's going to be the Philippine Masters of CS:GO?
