Four years, eight splits in the making. 10th, 4th, 5th, 3rd, 2nd, 3rd, 2nd, 1st, Rogue has established their presence as a consistent powerhouse in the LEC and finally claimed their first title.
We started off the summer split with two losses against G2 Esports and Fnatic but then came back with a dominant eight game winning streak that was ended by G2 in week five. Rogue wrapped up the regular split 11-7 in 3rd place.
Rogue faced tough competition on its way to hoisting the trophy. After defeating MAD Lions 3-2 in a best-of-five, Rogue suffered defeat at the hands of G2 Esports yet again in their first playoffs encounter, losing the match 0-3. With a renewed sense of determination, We came out on top against Fnatic with a 3-1 victory, earning the right to once again go against G2 Esports in the finals.
G2 has historically been a weakness for Rogue. This split especially with nothing but losses against them going into the final. But something changed on the stage in Malmö for the entire team. There was a new sense of trust and strength that led the team to a swift 3-0 victory that shook the very foundation of the EU esports scene. With this win, Rogue qualified for the Main Event of the 2022 World Championship and will not be required to participate in the Play-In Stage of the competition.
In addition, this win gives our top laner, Odoamne, his first championship victory in his eight-year career.
The 2022 World Championship will kick off September 29, 2022 in North America.
