The following five players will be starting on Rogue for Pro League Season 11:
- Théophile "Hicks" Dupont
- Maurice "AceeZ" Erkelenz
- Jan "ripz" Hucke
- Valentin "risze" Liradelfo
- Lukas "korey" Zwingmann
Four out of five of the new Rogue roster comes from Giants Gaming. Having signed its second team back in August to compete in Pro League and the French National league, Giants moved its Spanish players to a team called Giants Spain which disbanded in October.
Giants were able to win the 6 French League 2019 Finals over Team Vitality and placed second in Season 10, securing a place at the Finals in Tokoname, Japan.
This also saw the core qualify for the Six Invitational 2020 in Montreal this March, joining the likes of Team Empire, Team SoloMid and a former team of ripz: Natus Vincere.
Fnatic were the final team to make it through qualifiers and one final hotly anticipated invite will be given out in the coming weeks.
Rogue was formerly hosting a North American lineup but was relegated following a poor showing in Season 10 and a loss at the hands of 2Faced, now Tempo Storm.
Rogue R6S will compete today (6th January) for the first time in Pro League at 20:30 GMT against Chaos Esports Club.
Clashes will also take place between G2 Esports and BDS Esport, forZe and Na'Vi as well as Vitality and Empire.
All of the Season 11 Pro League action will be streamed live on Twitch, YouTube and Mixer.
