Hiko returns in Rogue
Rogue have announced that they have completed the signing of a CS:GO team featuring former Liquid member Spencer "Hiko" Martin.
The 27-year-old has been out of action since stepping down from OpTic in March after filling in for the North American team for almost two months, during which he attended DreamHack Masters Las Vegas and IEM Katowice.
Joining the 2016 ESL One Cologne finalist in Rogue are Daniel "vice" Kim, Collin "wrath" McSweegan and Josh "shinobi" Abastado, three players who were part of the Enigma6 squad who secured a spot in ESL Pro League Season 6 by beating Rush in the relegation stage.
Along with securing the core of the Enigma6 roster, Rogue have also acquired the team's Pro League spot. Former CLG coach Garett "Grt" Bambrough will be joining the players on their quest to "become a real contender over the next six months", according to a statement from the Las Vegas-based organisation.
"Having an opportunity like this does not come around often; Vice, Wrath, and I have worked extremely hard to get to this point and under the Rogue banner we will accomplish great things," shinobi said in a statement.
"Hiko and Grt are legends in the North American scene and their experience and veteran presence will help develop the incredible talent this team possesses into future stars.
"This is the strongest lineup I have ever been a part of and I am excited to tackle new challenges and help lead them to the top echelon of the CS scene. I'd like to give thanks to Rogue for this incredible opportunity and believing in this project, as well as to all of the fans supporting us."
Rogue have not made any mention of when then plan to reveal their fifth player, with the roster currently looking as follows:
