With the ultimate bout of elite European competitors coming quickly, gamers are gearing for the most important check of the 12 months. For Rogue, it is a very fascinating predicament. For a number of splits now the staff has carried out effectively all through the common season, however constantly fails to hold the momentum all through playoffs. Many would contemplate it much more worrying relating to their efficiency within the LEC Summer season Cut up 2022 — a comparatively sober run by Rogue. In the event that they could not outperform within the common season, what’s going to that imply for playoffs?


The staff’s AD carry Markos “Comp” Stamkopoulos has excessive hopes. He is assured in Rogue’s potential extra so than even their earlier run within the spring. Inven World spoke with Comp to debate his ideas on the staff, his improvement as a participant, and which staff’s he is searching for in playoffs.

What’s your notion of this break up? It’s been a reasonably bizarre one for you guys, so give me your normal ideas.


Effectively, total, this common season has been far more constant than the final one. The final one — you would inform that we have been for certain the most effective time in common season. We had probably the most constant video games, and we have been just about manner cleaner than we are actually. However I do not actually essentially have an issue with this — so long as we be taught from it. And truly realized quite a bit this common season. So I’ve greater hopes for playoffs even than final break up. So so long as we are able to take the teachings we took and continue to learn from it, we ought to be fairly good for playoffs.


What would you say are the most important classes that you simply took away from the break up?


It is principally discovering our personal staff identification. And total, we’re the staff that in all probability is without doubt one of the much less proactive groups within the early sport. Particularly this week, we have now truly proved that quite a bit. So so long as we stabilize our early video games, contest goals collectively, and teamfight, we ought to be successful versus each staff. 


What’s your notion of the general panorama going into playoffs? What groups stand out to you?


I’d say for certain it will be G2. I actually do not actually consider every other groups standing out in playoffs aside from G2. So in my private opinion, a minimum of, G2 ought to be our solely massive menace within the playoffs.

What stands out to you about G2 total?


They’re for certain the most effective early sport staff — a minimum of in scrims. On stage, they’ve some inconsistent video games like we did this break up. However we’re trying to playoffs now, so if I needed to guess on a staff that might enhance quite a bit and be extra constant, it will be G2 for certain.


Why would you say that you simply really feel extra assured in your staff than final break up, given the distinction in data?


It comes from shedding. We have been probably not shedding final break up as a lot as we did this break up. However the factor is, the best way we misplaced the video games this break up is manner totally different than the earlier one. As a result of even after we misplaced some video games within the earlier break up, I really feel prefer it was far more contesting the sport (the precise sport that we’re shedding). However proper now, we have now misplaced a minimum of two or three video games that we’re simply not taking part in the sport. So I believe these losses hit manner more durable this break up, and we realized from it. We took them very personally, and we glance to not enable this to occur once more.


How do you’re feeling in regards to the course the staff has when it comes to its identification? What’re your ideas at the moment of how Rogue is structured? Once I spoke with Fredy, he talked about how the staff focuses extra on the bot lane.

Personally, I do not actually assume (proper now a minimum of) we’re essentially a bot-centric staff. We will simply play for bot if we need to, and we have now adequate matchups and we are able to abuse them. However the factor is, someday relying on the matchup, it is simply surviving bot and attending to the purpose the place our champions are allowed to teamfight. 


We’re going away from that mindset, even final break up. Final break up, the meta was totally different — there was much more Viktor, for instance, in mid lane and the champion may dominate the sport. Larssen was excellent on it, so we may mess around it, play the sport gradual, and he would at all times be forward of the enemy mid laner and mechanically win. 


However the factor this break up is that the groups which are most constant in staff preventing simply win. Particularly with Sivir and Zeri, I do not assume there ought to be massive lane gaps within the bot lane. Except, for instance, folks nonetheless play Kalista and Draven, however these champs are principally banned. So, we simply have the mindset of: if we are able to win lane and we have now the instruments for it, we’ll go for it. However our major focus is to staff battle. That is the distinction between successful playoffs and never successful playoffs.


Let’s look individually at you for a second: what would you say have been the most important enhancements for you as a bot laner this break up?


Total, when it comes to laning part and all of this — me and Trymbi have been at all times very constant. Our largest enchancment from each of us this break up is taking part in extra with the staff and pondering extra in a macro option to play the sport. I make it sound quite simple, however so long as we have now this constant macro each sport, then we can be taught we can present our micro. That is the way it goes. 


We create our personal teamfights, after which we are able to present how good individually we’re. But when you do not have the primary one, then you’ll be able to’t more often than not (in aggressive particularly) present the second. So our major focus for now’s: we all know everybody is superb individually, however we have to play collectively, so everybody can showcase. 


To conclude: What do you consider ought to be the one largest level of focus for Rogue going into playoffs?


Total, simply doing very totally different drafts. And total, understanding that every staff is totally different, and we are able to both abuse their weaknesses, or we are able to additionally abuse much more our strengths versus particular groups. So long as we preserve the macro degree very excessive up, and our drafts are on level, we ought to be good for playoffs.
