Ultraliga is the home of professional League of Legends in Poland and is broadcasted to viewers across television and the internet. AGO Rogue was one of the competing teams in the Season 3 Playoffs and put together exceptional performances week after week, culminating in AGO Rogue dominantly securing the Ultraliga Season 3 Playoffs Championship.
For those who missed out on any of the exciting League of Legends action from AGO Rogue’s impressive run, we have rounded up everything you need to know to relive all of the ups and downs of what is a season that will never be forgotten by Rogue Nation.
January 28th was the beginning of the thrilling journey the AGO Rogue roster of Mathias “Szygenda” Jensen, Nikolay “Zanzarah” Akatov, Pawel “Czekolad” Szczepanik, Pawel “Woolite” Pruski, and Patryk “Mystiques” Piorkowski took during the Ultraliga Season 3 Playoffs. It was a highlight day for the squad, as AGO Rogue was able to start the season with a 1-0 victory over devils.one. The championship squad continued their strong start when they obtained a 1-0 win over AVEZ on January 29th to conclude Week 1.
Week 2 was a mirror image of the first week of competition where AGO Rogue was able to start with a 1-0 win against piratesports and then push past Illuminar Gaming in a 1-0 victory to put their season record at an undefeated 4-0 in early February.
Ultraliga’s third week of action saw AGO Rogue summon another impressive undefeated record and show the world just how dangerous they are on the rift. This formidable nature was shown in the team’s 1-0 victories over both Diablo Chairs and K1CK Neosurf to triple their win column to a perfect 6-0.
Now, a 6-0 start to a season is tough to beat when it comes to the world of professional League of Legends. However, AGO Rogue was more than ready to keep their undefeated record on track with 1-0 wins over the likes of AVEZ and Pride to push their record to 8-0 and cement their status as the top dog in Ultraliga.
The talented roster of AGO Rogue knew that their first four weeks of results was just a precursor to what the rest of their season would hold. This was evident by the team grabbing another 2-0 week to their resume for a remarkable 10-0 record through five weeks of the Polish League of Legends esports league.
Unfortunately, all good things must eventually come to an end, which was the case in Week 7 of Ultraliga. AGO Rogue was able to add another notch on their perfect record, pushing it to 11-0 with a 1-0 victory over Illuminar Gaming. However, perfection was denied for the squad when they fell to K1CK Neosurf in a 0-1 defeat.
AGO Rogue went on to suffer a similar fate in the final week of the regular season for Ultraliga with a 0-1 loss to devils.one and a 1-0 victory over Pride. These final results resulted in AGO Rogue finishing the latest Ultraliga season at the top of the standings with a league-best 12-2 record. The top spot in the standings sent AGO Rogue straight to the semi-finals where they suffered a tragic 1-3 loss to K1CK Neosurf to send them down into the losers bracket. However, the boys were not ready to call it quits on the rift and were able to secure a spot in the championship match with a resilient 3-0 win over devils.one.
The undeniable fortitude of AGO Rogue allowed the talented squad to gain a rematch against K1CK Neosurf. They say that there is not anything sweeter than revenge, and the members of AGO Rogue can surely testify to that statement, as they were able to rebound from their earlier loss and secure a 3-1 victory over K1CK Neosurf to capture the Ultraliga Season 3 Playoffs Championship.
Championships are forged through countless hours of hard work and perseverance, which was more than evident during AGO Rogue’s run to capture the Ultraliga Season 3 Playoffs Championship. There is no doubt that this season was a loud proclamation to the rest of the Polish League of Legends scene that AGO Rogue is now the top-dog on the rift and has no intention of going away for the foreseeable future.
