CompLexity Gaming Replaces Rogue in ECS Season 7
CompLexity will replace Rogue in ECS Season 7, organizers FACEIT announced Tuesday.
Rogue was unable to fulfill its commitments to the season due to not having a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster, the organizers announced. Dexerto's Jarek "DeKay" Lewis reported Friday that Rogue was to leave professional CS:GO. Rogue later confirmed that the organization was leaving the scene due to Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen and Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen being in talks to join OpTic Gaming.
"Losing MSL and Niko would mean another long rebuild after just completing our previous one. After much deliberation, we determined that we could not spend another six months rebuilding the roster again, especially with the ESL Pro League roster lock less than a week away. With these issues, as well as interest in our remaining North American players, there was no easy way for us to salvage the existing roster. We are extremely disappointed that we will not be able to fulfill our duties to EPL and ECS. Following StarLadder Season 7 (March 30 - April 7), Rogue CS:GO will officially be dissolved. We hope to re-enter the CS:GO scene at some point in the future," Rogue said in its announcement.
CompLexity Gaming will fill in for the remainder of ECS Season 7. The North American team recently added Hunter "SicK" Mims to replace the temporary Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert.
