Rogue acquires Gyro to complete RLCS 11 roster

As Firstkiller departed from the org, Rogue came in clutch signing one of the hottest free agents the North American region had to offer.
Professional Rocket League player Jirair "Gyro" Papazian has found a new home alongside the bandits as he has signed with Rogue for the RLCS 11 season.

The 18-year-old will be joining Leonardo "Turinturo" Wilson, Alexandre "Taroco" Reis Pedrogam and coach Gabriel "CorruptedG" Vallozzi and will represent the Rogue banner effective immediately.

After being placed in FaZe Clan’s inactive roster back in late June, Gyro was finally released on 3rd September -- the same day his replacement Jason “Firstkiller” Corral was announced and his introduction to Rogue was made official.

This will Gyro’s fourth team and fifth tenure as he started his professional career with The Peeps then juggled to the Pittsburgh Knights, back to The Peeps then was finally signed to FaZe Clan’s Rocket League debut squad.

Gyro had one of the most decorated careers in North American with a runner-up regional placement and a LAN appearance in Season 8, a multitude of top finishes in Season X and a DreamHack championship under his belt.

His tenure with FaZe Clan came to an abrupt end as they dramatically clinched the last spot in the top six for the North American Championship where the red-and-black brand finished dead last.

Although they conquered multiple regional tournaments in the RLCS X season, Rogue’s faith in the NA Championship wasn’t that much different from FaZe Clan’s. 

With a quick one-two punch, the org was sent home in a surprisingly quick exit in back-to-back sweeps against Spacestation Gaming and G2 Esports respectively.

Now, the bandits are looking to bring Gyro in to turn the ship around and convert those close-calls and runner-up finishes into a full-blown regional, major or even World Championship.
