All Western fans’ hopes are left on Rogue’s shoulders as bot laner Markos “Comp” Stamkopoulos seems optimistic the team will go far in the Worlds 2022.
Comp Says What Rogue Needs
The last week of the League of Legends World Championship 2022 has seen the ending of the event’s group stage. With Asian teams like T1 and JD Gaming effortlessly dominating their groups, the only Western team left, Rogue, is looking at some tough opponents as the Worlds enter the knockout stage.
The LEC’s performance seemingly peaked during the first week of groups but the league’s teams dropped the ball in the second week with only Rogue keeping the momentum. After Fnatic’s inglorious falling out of the Worlds, EU fans lay their hopes upon Rogue’s shoulders. Despite that, the international roster needs a few more things to continue forward, said the team’s bot laner Markos “Comp” Stamkopoulos.
“I’ll probably say we made some stupid mistakes during the middle game and the Nashor incident was for sure one of them. So, I think what we take as a lesson from this game is that from this game that heading to the next ones, we should focus on improving our mid-game and we should be good to go,” said Comp in a recent interview for Blix regarding Rogue’s most recent win against GAM Esports.
The 20-year-old Greek player pointed out that Rogue’s biggest weakness currently is its midgame. When asked what he thinks should be done to ameliorate that problem, Comp said that the team does not need a lot of scrims or time to fix it. “I think this game is mostly a reminder of those mistakes in the mid-game that we need to fix. We want to go head-to-head with the best teams,” he said.
What Did Comp Say about His Personal Performance?
Comp also explained that he personally had a tougher time early in the tournament because of the lack of sleep brought on by the time zone difference. “Also, we had a lot of media stuff to do, like waking up early on the first days. You could easily see from my scrim performance that I was not in form yet,” he said.
But despite these initial hiccups, the player knew that things would get better when he adapts. “I knew that this was not what I would be showing during the official matches at Worlds, so I just knew that I had to get to control my schedule and yeah just basically be ready for when the right time comes,” Comp explained.
He will have the opportunity to prove himself once again when Rogue faces the LPL’s JDG later this week.
