Danish AWPer Casper “cadiaN” Møller will join Rogue and begin playing with the team in ESL Pro League next week, according to multiple sources. CadiaN has already spent time with Rogue as a member of their European roster from August 2016 through May.
After spending two months playing online matches with the Danish “undefined” roster, CadiaN will move to North America and to play with Rogue. The move comes just after undefined in-game leader Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen announced his departure yesterday to pursue another offer. HUNDEN cited lack of support from sponsors and performance as reasons behind his decision.
Rogue has endured a handful of obstacles to start ESL Pro League Season 6, beginning with Collin “wrath” McSweegan being too young to compete for their first 10 matches. Next, Rogue lost its original target, AWPer Cvetelin “CeRq” Dimitrov, to NRG Esports after practicing with him on multiple occasions.
The team then lost AWPer Matthew “WARDELL” Yu after he retracted his commitment to Rogue two hours before a match was scheduled to start. Since the start of the season, Rogue has gone 2-8 while using multiple stand-ins. The addition of cadiaN and wrath should allow for the team to improve in an attempt to qualify for the playoffs, which will take place in Denmark in December.
Representatives from Rogue could not initially be reached for comment.
