I don't think you'd say anything different if i had a gigabyte sniper or something similar.
I believe you misunderstood me, I also have a RoG motherboard and I am also very satisfied.
The name Republic of Gamers is actually quite good, but with the current trend everything is being named "something something gaming".
I bought my motherboard for 200 euros, there were cheaper alternatives, but I bought it not cause of the RoG name but cause of the quality it offered.
And it has proved me right, my 890FX Crosshair IV Formula can take an FX8320, not only that but it can also OC it with ease, a few minor issues from being 890FX but that have been solved.
So a piece of equipment launched in 2011 I believe that I bought for 200 euros is still pretty much relevant if I think about an upgrade path with AMD, if I decide to switch to Intel I can still make a pretty good buck out of it.
They are just lacking in originality with the names, the names will not affect the quality of the product they are just trying to market it to gamers.
