Nicholas "skipjack" Rosada has left Rogue's starting roster as the team attempts to form an all-French lineup, according to a tweet from the player Tuesday.

The German tank player noted that while he was not on the active roster, he was still under contract to the organization. However, he will look for other options.

Skipjack's addition to the Rogue roster happened at the beginning of December, when he was part of a three-way trade that sent Rogue's Jonathan "Reinforce" Larsson and Kevyn "TviQ" Lindström to Misfits. In exchange, Rogue received Terence "SoOn" Tarlier and Skipjack from Misfits.

Skipjack was not directly part of the team's victory at ELEAGUE's Overwatch Open, however, as he was unable to travel to the event. He did, however, help Misfits in their 3-2 grand finals victory over Fnatic at DreamHack Winter 2016, which earned the team the $30,000 grand prize.

He also represented Team Germany at the Overwatch World Cup, but trapped in Group C, the team went 1-2 with losses to the Russian and the U.S. teams.
