MOBA ROG is an Italian team composed by some of the most important streamers of the Italian League of Legends scene. One of the MOBA ROG goals is to exploit the renown of its members in order to increase the audience interest in the Italian competitive scene. Despite the first criticisms that accused MOBA ROG to be nothing but an "advertisement stunt", the team has proven to be seriously committed and prepared.

History

2018 Season

The first signs of the team were seen on the 14th of December 2017, when a Facebook page was created.[1] However, four months later there was still no roster announcement - only rumors about Paolocannone, vANEZ, and italiand0g. From the 6th to the 10th of April 2018, one video was published on the official Facebook page per day, each presenting a new team member. The full roster was revealed during a live stream on Paolocannone's Twitch channel on April 10th. Later that month, ASUS ROG's partnership was announced.

PG Nationals Predator Summer Season

MOBA ROG qualified for PG Nationals Predator Summer Season, their first competition ever to participate, which won PG Nationals Predator Summer Expansion Qualifier #1 defeating Racoon 3-2. PG Nationals Summer went great: MOBA ROG earned third place in regular season, with a record of 9-5. Despite its performance during regular season, the team got beaten by Racoon during quarterfinals.

Late 2018

Following its goal to increase the audience in italian competitive scene, MOBA ROG was invited to Red Bull Factions 2018 as wild card.
Roster changes were expected. Some rumors were heard about Aki and Fragola during the summer. On 20th September, during a live stream on Paolocannone's Twitch channel, Aki and Fragola joined officially the team. It was announced that MOBA ROG would compete in EVC 2018 Winter Season too.

EVC 2018 Winter Season went good. MOBA ROG placed second in regular season, becoming the only team never beated in a serie. They earned 5 wins and 4 ties. Despite its second place, the team showed its inconstancy. MOBA ROG was defeated by iDomina eSports in semifinals.

2019 Season

After EVC 2018 Winter Season, some rumors were heard about Acefos and Counter's departures. In January, Acefos and Counter's departures were confirmed, followed by Aki's departure, after only four months from his entry. Only Paolocannone remained from the original roster. Zvene and Outlandisch, first MOBA ROG's imports, joined with Lazuriel and Sabbath. Fragola moves to sub jungler and Crocomux joined as sub midlaner.

PG Nationals 2019 Spring Season

Spring Season didn't go well. Some accidents happened. First of all Lazuriel was banned for two week due to summoner's code violation on 5th of February, forcing MOBA ROG playing with Vigil, an unknown italian midlaner. Later MOBA ROG decided to bench Outlandisch, due to his bad performance. During week 5, Fragola replaced Outlandisch and Lazuriel's ban ended. Once again MOBA ROG tried the comeback, with zero results. MOBA ROG's last hope was Hiro, an young rookie discovered by Paulcannon during soloqueue matches. On week 6, Hiro replaced Sabbath, Lazuriel moved to starting jungler and Vigil moved to starting midlaner. Despite these last desperate changes, MOBA ROG ended the season with a 2 - 12 record.
