Rogue will add top laner Kim “Profit” Jun-hyung, jungler Mateusz “Kikis” Szkudlarek, mid laner Chres “Sencux” Laursen and support Kim “Wadid” Bae-in to their new League of Legends European Championship lineup, sources close to the team told ESPN.
The four new members of the team will join AD carry Martin “HeaQ” Kordmaa, the first signing by Rogue after free agency began on Nov. 19. To complete the lineup, Rogue will need to facilitate a transfer agreement with G2 Esports for Wadid, whose contract with G2 lasts until the end of the 2020 season. The additions of Profit and Wadid were first reported by Fomos. Rogue declined comment when contacted by ESPN.
The team signed former Team ROCCAT coach Simon “fredy122” Payne as their head coach and former Gambit support Edward “Edward” Abgaryan as their assistant coach. Rogue has also signed Emil “Larssen” Larsson as a substitute mid laner, sources said. Larssen, 18, announced on Twitter on Monday that he will complete his schooling in the spring, then join the team in Berlin and compete for the starting mid lane spot in the summer.
Of the Rogue roster, four — Profit, Kikis, HeaQ and Wadid — previously had been members of Team ROCCAT. After they were accepted into the League European Championship in October, Rogue hired former Team ROCCAT manager Tomislav “flyy” Mihailov as their European GM.
Rogue will make their League of Legends debut in January, after being one of 10 organizations to be accepted as permanent partners in the League European Championship. Prior to competing in League of Legends, Rogue held professional-level teams in Overwatch, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Rainbow Six Siege.
