North American Counter-Strike team Rogue are actively looking for a new coach, according to multiple sources close to the players and team. Matthew "mCe" Elmore has been demoted from the position, leaving them without a coach in recent scrimmage matches.


Rogue has started ESL Pro League Season 8 with a 2-7 record and a 4-4 record in Season 6 of ECS North America. The team was left with hardly any time to replace departing in-game leader Casper “cadiaN” Møller, who ​joined North just days before the ESL Pro League roster lock deadline. Eventually, Rogue decided upon trialing Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend over the likes of Pujan "FNS" Mehta, another player considered for the role. kRYSTAL recently left Ghost Gaming after playing there on loan from The Imperial.


MCe has been a member of a number of organizations while coaching North American teams including SoaR Gaming and Team Dignitas prior to Rogue. They were the other North American team to qualify for the recent FACEIT Major: London through the Minor system, along with compLexity.


Rogue could not initially be reached for comment.
