Rogue request emergency EPL transfer

November 28th, 2017 22:55

Rogue have contacted WESA to request an emergency transfer in the ESL Pro League, according to a report from

The move comes as a result of the removal of Collin "wrath" McSweegan's from Rogue's active roster following a 13th-place finish in the ESL Pro League, which forces the team to take part in a relegation stage to keep their spot in the $1 million competition.

wrath, who has been seen playing for Ghost in recent weeks, allegedly refused to play for Rogue any longer upon hearing that he was being benched, leaving the team in a very difficult situation as they cannot make any additions to their roster following the league's trade deadline.

Rogue turn to WESA to request an extra transfer

Rogue reportedly fear that, even if the 16-year-old agrees to play, he will not do so to the best of his abilities, which would severely hurt their chances in a relegation stage that will include Immortals, GX and the loser of the ESEA Premier final between Rise Nation and SoaR

The emergency transfer process was created by WESA in September following the internal issues that left Immortals without a five-man roster to play in the league. It can be granted "in the event of extraordinary circumstances" and allows a team to complete a roster change outside of the transfer window.

It seems very unlikely that WESA will respond favourably to the request, however, as Rogue still have two eligible players outside of their starting roster: team coach Garett "Grt" Bambrough and backup member Michael "Uber" Stapells.

nah, he got kicked. In an interview he says he expected it to happen because he was underperforming. Stan got signed and Hiko didn't even know it happened until they announced it.
2017-11-29 01:27
Your information is wrong, Hiko didn't get kicked from Liquid. It was an agreement between him and team owner to step down because of internal problems with him and s1mple. He also mentioned the fact that he had lost his drive to play during the times the issues arose. He talked about it on his Twitch stream.
2017-11-29 03:49
Completely fucking wrong, what the fuck. S1mple and Hiko didnt even have any problems, it was Hiko and ELiGE. Why would it matter if he had problems with a player who left for Na'Vi months ago?

S1mple literally invited hiko to play as a standin for flipsid3 for a tournament one time. I mean he trusts this guy as a player and a friend so I knew he was bullshit when he talked about them having internal problems
2017-11-29 09:32
Its well known S1mple and Hiko are good friends. Not to mention, Hiko literally did a 2 and a half hour long video after his Liquid kick titled "Hiko Real Talk" where he discussed everything that happened on Liquid leading up to his kick Link for if you want it:
2017-11-29 09:34
Simple wasn't even in the team when Hiko was kicked so why would he have left due to "internal problems" with simple?
2017-11-29 10:39
I never stated simple had a problem with Hiko. I said simple and Hiko had internal problems with the team. Hiko protected simple, when Elige was being the douche bag he always has been. And this caused an internal problem with the team because Hiko dam near put simple on that team. My information isn't incorrect. Especially since i know them. K?

Dude you literally degraded to the same level as me.On a side note, SK fans are so repulsive because they believe SK represent them when they are SK's fans but the truth is, SK fans are SK fans because in real life, SK fans are so unachievable and useless so they want to be successful SK fans just to make them feel like they mean something in real life.

2017-11-28 22:57
They almost kicked him, and he refused to play, why is he cuck kid? He made all things right, no respect for org
2017-11-28 22:58
its a business... thats what you kids on this site dont understand. In the real world you cant just pout to get your way. He has probably sucked or is a bad team mate and they want him gone. So he just whines and says he wont play, which screws them over. Its fucked up. He should man up, play it out. And if he gets kicked then so be it. But dont be a little bitch
2017-11-28 23:10
Stopped reading after 'you kids on this site dont understand'. If you take it so personal and cocky, just give me a favor and disappear.

He signed a contract and gets paied to play with Rogue. This is business where u cant do whatever u want when u are under a contract
2017-11-29 00:10
Sure he can't do whatever he wants. But he can (almost certainly) refuse to play without breaking the contract.
2017-11-29 00:19
Im not saying the legal shit. Im saying to be a man of your word. Dont be a spineless fuckwad. A cancer to society. Do what you say you will do and walk out with your head held high. This fucking nerd is stumbling out and crying.
2017-11-29 14:40
Well he joined the team in order to play mat he's right?? It is not illegal for the org to bench him, but it is not what they intended to right? That's the same logic as you are applying

Depends on his contract. Furthermore, it's highly unprofessional. I wouldn't want someone like that on my roster. Doesn't matter how good he is. This does nothing but hurt his career, and frustrate the org. He's just being childish and stupid, to me.

They didn't terminate his contract. Benching someone isn't quite the same thing. Furry weeb or not, my opinion doesn't change.

he is doing that in Rogue by discovering and mentoring the new blood coming into the scene :)))

"It seems very unlikely that WESA will respond favourably to the request, however, as Rogue still have two eligible players outside of their starting roster: team coach Garett "Grt" Bambrough and backup member Michael "Uber" Stapells." I understand that they don´t have confidence in wrath anymore ... but what´s the point in having a "backup member" if you don´t play him if they actually need him?

Just play with Uber? Problem solved.
2017-11-28 23:08
i highly doubt uber has actually practiced with him. they probably want to get ryx/relyks because they have practiced A LOT with him. obviously if this emergency transfer is not granted they will use uber.
2017-11-28 23:19
Faroe Islands LIVING_MEME 
Why have a back-up player if you don't use him when in need of a back-up player?
2017-11-29 17:48
they normally would except in the conditions that for the past month/two months they have been playing with Ryx and Relyks, using uber (who had 5 games with rogue where he got less than 10 kills) would be less than desirable
2017-11-29 17:50
Faroe Islands LIVING_MEME 
I understand your point, but in my opinion they should've started practicing with Uber when they knew they have to use him on the LAN. And keep the ryx and relyks transfer for the next season.
2017-11-29 17:51
Fairly sure people from NA (Hiko etc.) hyped up this wrath guy, and now he's being removed. =)
