“We’re really excited to begin working with Casper,” Rogue coach Garett “Grt” Bambrough said in a statement. “He will bring a lot of much-needed experience to the team. With the addition of cadiaN and the return of our fifth, Collin “wrath” McSweegan, we will greatly improve ahead of this difficult stretch of matches in ESL Pro League and begin to show our true potential.”
After spending two months playing online matches with the Danish “undefined” roster, CadiaN will join Rogue as Slingshot reported Thursday. The move comes after undefined in-game leader Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen announced his departure Wednesday to pursue another offer. HUNDEN cited lack of support from sponsors and performance as reasons behind his decision.
Rogue has been going through some roster complications for this season of the ESL Pro League, starting with Collin “wrath” McSweegan being too young to compete in the first 10 games with the team. Rogue then lost its initial target Cvetelin “CeRq” Dimitrov to NRG Esports, though CeRq had already started practicing with Rogue. Then the team had to deal with the last-minute retraction from Matthew “WARDELL” Yu, but the roster now appears set.
“I’m extremely happy to finally solidify our roster for the foreseeable future,” in-game leader Josh “shinobi” Abastado said in a statement. “It’s been a series of ups and downs, but I’m very confident in the direction we have decided to take this lineup, and I’m excited to start practicing and working with the full five. Casper brings in a lot of experience, but more importantly he adds leadership and another voice in the team. I look forward to playing with him, as well as our teammate wrath, who has been patiently waiting to prove himself due to the EPL age restriction.”
