Rogue is one of the youngest teams in the European League of Legends scene, having joined the LoL European Championship just ahead of the ninth LoL season. The team is owned by an American esports organization founded in 2016, with popular musician Steve Aoki being one of its investors.
Riot Games and Rogue announced the organization would be one of the ten franchised partners for the LEC 2019 Spring Split during the preceding offseason. The organization signed mostly experienced players for its first venture into League esports, including Kim “Wadid” Bae-in and Mateusz "Kikis" Szkudlarek.
However, the team started the season on a low note. Rogue lost its first nine games in the LEC 2019 Spring Split. The losing streak eventually stopped, but the team managed to take only two wins during the whole of its debut split, and both wins were against other struggling teams.
The two wins happened thanks to four members of Rogue getting replaced with Oskar “Vander” Bogdan, Emil “Larssen” Larsson, Paweł "Woolite" Pruski, and Kacper "Inspired" Słoma. With Kim "Profit" Jun-hyung being the only previous member to stay on the roster, Rogue put its trust in Inspired and Larseen by promoting them from the academy team.
Besides taking those two games, the new roster didn’t seem to be doing Rogue much good for the rest of the split as it finished in last place with a 2-16 record. Despite the disappointing split, Rogue was showing some improvement. During the LEC 2019 Summer Split, Finn "Finn" Wiestål was given more time in the top lane, replacing Profit on the LEC stage.
With Finn on the team, Rogue was getting more wins. By the end of the split, the team managed to secure a spot in the playoffs. With a 7-11 record, Rogue made it to the playoffs with the lowest possible number of wins. Team Vitality is the only other team to carry such a low record into the LEC playoffs.
In the LEC 2019 Summer Playoffs, Splyce, who finished the regular season third, picked Rouge as its opponent for the first round. Although Splyce was the strong favorite of the match, Rogue outplayed the team for a clean 3-0 sweep. In the second round, Rogue’s players were set against Schalke 04, and lost the series 1-3. Rogue earned $20,000 for fourth place, but didn’t manage to come close to Worlds 2019 qualification.
During the 2020 offseason, Rogue decided to keep most of its starting roster. The only new player on the team is bot laner Steven “Hans Sama” Liv, who together with Finn, Inspired, Larssen, and Vander makes up Rogue’s LEC 2020 Spring Split team.
