SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – 26 April, 2017 - We are today pleased to announce that AOC has embarked on the naming rights sponsorship of CyberGamer’s Overwatch competitive circuit. This partnership comes off the back of AOC announcing two new flagship gaming monitors, the UHD AOC AGON AG271UG and ultra-wide AOC AG352UCG.
The best gamers demand the highest quality products, with first person shooters such as Overwatch requiring the finest products a gamer can get in order to beat the rest. AOC’s AG271UG monitor proves itself in battle by offering a stunning IPS panel, varying connection options including Display Port 1.2 and HDMI 1.4, four USB 3.0 ports and a 4ms response time.

Backing this model is the breathtaking AOC AG352UCG, sporting an exhilarating 35” curved display that displays a crisp 3440x1400p image, backed up by a smooth 100Hz refresh rate. This large-scale monitor comes further packed with HDMI and Displayport input options, USB fast charge, a quick 4ms response time and a viewing angle of 178 degrees.
Pairing the best monitors with this premium ANZ Overwatch tournament, AOC will be supporting CyberGamer’s $11,000 (AUD) prize pool, complete with live finals in their newly-opened tournament space and studio. With qualifiers beginning on April the 3rd and 4th, CyberGamer will be conducting this tournament with two divisions in mind, amateur and professional.
The amateur contingent will reach its finals berth on Monday the 5th of June, with the professional division finals beginning at 10am, Sunday the 11th of June. This means that the tournament will coincide with AOC’s expected AG352UCG Australian launch date of April 18th.
With the professional division victor being set to take home $5,000 in cash, CyberGamer is further offering $2,500 for second place and $1,250 for fourth and fifth finishers. The online-only amateur division will feature a $1,000 first place prize, with second place earning $500 and third & fourth taking home $250 each.
If you’re interested in checking out the Overwatch action for yourself, CyberGamer’s official live coverage will be streamed direct to Twitch.TV on their partnered account.
