CSGO News: niko Joins Rogue As Roster Moves Continue

Nikolaj “niko” Kristensen has officially joined the Rogue CS:GO squad according to the team’s official twitter account. Niko replaces fellow Dane Jesper “TENZKI” Plougmann on the squad. The move comes just weeks after Rogue failed to qualify for the IEM Katowice Major Qualifiers.

Previously, niko helped his former team, Optic Gaming, place second at cs_summit 3 in November and fourth at StarSeries & i-League Season 6. Rogue, for its part, has been trying to replace Ricardo “Rickeh” Mulholland since December 29th, using TENZKI as a stand-in until the niko signing.

Niko’s first maps with Rogue Gaming will be played this weekend at the IEM Sydney North American Open Qualifier. After this new signing, the Rogue lineup is as follows:

Nikolaj “niko” Kristensen
