Team Rogue will be disbanding their Overwatch team

On Sunday, Rogue announced that they’ve decided to release their players after initially trying to set up an Overwatch League team and failing. Rogue reportedly went through the approval process and received the buy-in money, but were still denied. What was Rogue to do?
On October 8, 2017, Rogue released a statement on Twitter, officially announcing the disbandment of their Overwatch League team. The statement said, “Today we’re sorry to announce that we will be breaking up the current #RogueOW roster to allow the players to pursue spots on OWL teams. We did everything we could to get the team a spot in OWL, including procuring the buy-in money and going through the whole approval process. Unfortunately, we were not accepted for Season 1 and had no option but to break up the most accomplished Overwatch team in the game’s history so that the players could accept offers. We will continue to pursue putting together more great teams in the future and hope next time to be able to keep what we’ve worked so hard to build.”
Rogue decided to break up the team, as to open up the former team members to other offers.
Team Rogue was reportedly full of the most accomplished Esports players in the world. Now, the team has decided to disband.
