In a statement on Twitter, Rogue founder Frank Villarreal pointed towards the departure of Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen and Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen as "a familiar predicament for our CS:GO team", referring back to Casper "cadiaN" Møller's move to North shortly after Rogue's run at the FACEIT London Major that forced the team into a tight spot prior to the start of ECS Season 6 and ESL Pro League Season 8. 

The impending departure of MSL and niko, combined with "interest in [Rogue's] remaining North American players" led to the organization choosing to dissolve the roster rather than rebuild in haste, as the ESL Pro League roster deadline closed mere hours ago at 6 PM EDT.
