Rogue replaced Inspired and Hans Sama ahead of the 2022 LEC Season
The organization officially announced former DWG KIA substitute jungler Malrang and former Team Vitality AD carry Comp as the new members for 2022. They will join Odoamne, Larssen, and Trymbi for the upcoming Spring Split.
The two players will be coming to replace Inspired and Hans Sama who both left for North America, playing for Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid respectively. The Polish and the French player were two of the core members of the team from 2019, making Rogue a top-tier organization in the span of two years. While they might have lost two very important elements, Rogue have found good enough replacements for 2022.
Malrang and Comp’s careers so far
Malrang started his career as a pro player back in 2017, playing for Ever8 Winners in Challengers Korea. His first stint was very successful, winning the split and qualifying for the LCK 2017 Summer Split. Despite reaching the best League domestically, the team showed its weaknesses, ending last and failing to qualify for the upcoming split. His talent, however, was seen overseas and the TCL team Royal Bandits picked him up.
After playing a short stint and achieving a 2nd place finish, he returned to Winners again before landing on Jin Air Green Wings. Unfortunately, the jungler ended up once again in the worst team of the LCK, only winning one series throughout the whole of 2019. Following the disastrous year, he played for KT Rolster before becoming the starting jungler on DK’s Academy team. Despite the team not having great results, Malrang had some spotlight during the 2021 LCK Summer Split, subbing in when the main team had some roster issues around its bot lane. He might not be one of the best LoL players from Korea but at 21 years old, Malrang can still count on a decent curriculum and has a good potential to make an exploit in the LEC.
On the other hand, Comp played for Team Vitality in the last two years. He’s still only 19 years old (he turns 20 on Dec.20), but has been playing competitively since 2015. He first militated in some Greek teams, including Elysium Gaming and Greek Regenesis, before joining Team-LDLC. The LFL team made its boom during the 2019 season, dominating both Spring and Summer splits in the French League. With such great results, he was then picked up by Team Vitality in the LEC.
The results, however, weren’t the greatest, as the organization made three bottom-two finishes in a row. During the most recent 2021 LEC Summer Split, Comp was replaced by Slovenian player Juš “Crownshot” Marušič. Now that Comp has left Vitality, he has a chance to redeem himself in one of the best performing orgs of recent times. Rogue has shown to have consistency over the course of a split but always fallen short when playoffs came by. Will this be the year that Rogue destroy the curse? Wait for January to find it out when LEC kicks off again in the 2022 Season.
