kRYSTAL to play EPL and ECS with Rogue

Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend will play the two online leagues with Rogue as in-game leader, the 25-year-old has revealed.

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:

United States Daniel "vice" Kim
United States Spencer "Hiko" Martin
United States Hunter "SicK" Mims
Australia Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland
Germany Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend

Maybe HLTV being helpful? Do you think Australian expats have PTSD when Australia is mentioned? Its like being raised in a war vs nature (giant spiders, snakes, kangaroos etc.) and then getting to live normal life.
