After a stint as stand-in in Ghost, kRYSTAL was replaced by the young Jason "neptune" Tran, the 25-year-old proclaiming that he was trying to 'find a new home'.
kRYSTAL, at least for now, takes over as in-game leader in Rogue, as the spot was left vacant when former captain Casper "cadiaN" Møller decided to move back to his home country to play for North.
kRYSTAL has found his second North American home
The 25-year-old German has had a year riddled with team changes, as he started out in Sprout, moved on to Imperial and later started his North American adventure as a temporary player in Ghost. The lineup under Joshua "steel" Nissan impressed with upsets at both ZOTAC Cup Masters and DreamHack Masters Stockholm where they beat OpTic and Natus Vincere, respectively.
ESL Pro League Season 8 beings today, meaning kRYSTAL's first game in Rogue will be their opener against Luminosity.
With Rogue completing their roster after cadiaN's departure, the lineup looks as follows:
Daniel "vice" Kim
Spencer "Hiko" Martin
Hunter "SicK" Mims
Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland
Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend
