Bulgarian AWPer Cvetelin “CeRq” Dimitrov will join Rogue’s Counter-Strike roster as the fifth and final member, according to multiple sources.
CeRq is 17 years old and most recently played for Team Outlaws, a relatively unknown team. He has performed well on LAN but never against top tier competition. The full lineup for Rogue includes CeRq, Hiko, Josh “shinobi” Abastado, Daniel “vice” Kim, Collin “wrath” McSweegan.
Rogue wasn’t the original organization interested in this team. Evil Geniuses was close to signing the group of players last month before talks broke down after a disagreement, according to sources. Once talks were irreparable, Rogue expressed interest and a deal was struck.
Rogue will play in the ESL Pro League Season 6 slot earned by the Enigma6 core, and the online league begins Aug. 22. Of the 14 North American teams, six will qualify for the finals, which Slingshot reported will take place in Denmark in December. G2 Esports won Season 5 in a 3-1 victory over team North on June 4.
Rogue could not initially be reached for comment
