Lee "Rogue" Byeong-yeol (born January 13, 1994) is a Korean Zerg player.

Wings Of Liberty[edit]

OnGameNet Star II League[edit]

2012 OSL KeSPA Preliminaries[edit]

On July 19, 2012, Savage participated in the 2012 OSL KeSPA Preliminaries. Savage took down ReQuiem, Shine, sOs, and faced hitmaN in the finals. After taking down hitmaN by a score of 2:0, Savage advanced in to the 2012 OSL KeSPA Dual Tournament.

Heart of the Swarm[edit]

Proleague 2012-2013 Season 1[edit]

Playing for Jin Air Green Wings, Rogue ended the season with a record of 8-17.

2013 WCS Korea run and results[edit]

Playing under the ID "Savage", he made Ro32 of Premier and Challenger League in Korea OSL S2, and then made Ro24 in Challenger for Korea GSL Season 3.

2014 WCS Korea run and results[edit]

Rogue participated in the Code A Season 1 where he managed to get to the Ro48. He placed third in his group with a record of 3-5. In his run he lost to Dark 0-2, then winning against Seed 2-1, but losing to Dark once again 1-2. This would knock him out of GSL Season 1.

He did slightly better in GSL Season 2. This time he placed second in his group and was able to advance. First he defeated Stats 2-1, he then faced RagnaroK and lost 0-2, he had to face Stats once again and beat him with the same score of 2-1. In Code S he was put in a group with Life, Classic and Hydra. This group would prove to be to difficult for Rogue and he gets knocked down in last place going 2-4 overall. Life and Hydra would defeat him 2-1 each.

With that run he was sent down in Code A for season 3. Season 3 of the GSL will begin the 16 July 2014.

2014 Foreign run[edit]

Rogue made the Ro16 of IEM VIII World Championship qualifying through the online qualifier. He was matched up against Life and lost 1-3.


2015 saw Rogue maintain remarkably consistent results in Korea, making Ro8 in 3 GSLs and 2 SSLs, but was ultimately eliminated in the Ro8 each time. He then capped off the year with a semi-final finish at the 2015 WCS Global Final, losing to eventual champion and teammate sOs. Additionally, he had a 26-14 record in the 2015 Proleague Season, the most wins of any Zerg player that year.


In 2017 Rogue wins the IEM Shanghai against herO 4-1. He also became champion of the GSL Super Tournament 2 where he met for the second time herO and beat him 4-3. But Rogue's success doesn't end here, he won the 2017 WCS Global Finals against SoO 4-2.


He qualified to 2018 WCS Global Finals by winning the prestigious 2018 IEM World Championship against Classic 4-0 albeit consistently locked at the Ro.8 GSL Code S Tournaments in the two seasons afterwards. In his road to grab for another Blizzcon title, Rogue finally conceded defeat to the eventual WCS Global Final's champion, Serral in the semifinal.


The first half-yearly results were not in favored of him as he lost against Classic in the quarterfinals of 2019 GSL Code Season I and also failed to proceed into Ro.16 2019 GSL Code Season II. However, the 2019 GSL Code Season III was a turning-point to his career as he managed to crowned himself as a first-time GSL Code S title in the gruesome final series against Trap.


  • Lost against RorO on his first official SC2 match.
  • Changed his ID twice in a few weeks in December 2013, first from Savage to CliMax (which he used during the pre-season of 2014 Proleague), and only two weeks later from CliMax to Rogue, at the start of 2014 Proleague Round 1.
  • His nickname "Sexy Boy" comes from the 10Q10A series where Rogue gave weird answers to the questions asked. The two quotes "I'm sexy boy" and "go straight, turn right" became a popular joke.
  • Is known for unorthodox strategies. Examples includes swarm hosts in ZvZ (vs Dark on Dusk Towers), double proxy hatch response to a cannon rush (vs Classic on Deadwing), triple proxy spore crawler in response to massive oracles (vs Stats on Ascension to Aiur), nydus swarm host play in ZvP (vs herO on Deadwing), mass baneling drop play (pre-LotV) in ZvP (vs herO on Echo), and mutalisk-viper play (vs Rain on Frost).
  • Held three World Champion titles at once, winning 2017 WCS Global Finals and beating Classic in the finals of IEM Season XII - World Championship to also gain the Unofficial World Champion title.
  • Surpassed MC and sOs to earn the most money from tournament winnings with his IEM Season XII - World Championship victory, amassing a total amount of over 546,000$. His record was broken by Maru less than two weeks after his win.
  • He is also the first Zerg player to win the IEM World Championship.
  • His great signature against Innovation is the burrowed banelings traps employed in several engagements between them; (Ro. 4 GSL SuperTournament II) and (Ro.8 2018 GSL Code S Season 2).
  • Rogue finally managed to break the curse of being locked eight times in Ro.8 GSL Code S after he won the series against Zest in 2019 GSL Code S Season 3.
  • Rogue's masterful strategy in utilizing the benefit of Infestor-Nydus combo during the match against Trap (Final 2019 GSL Code S Season 3) has caused outcry and meme among several Starcraft fans communities, who suggested to nerf Rogue, Nydus and Infestor altogether.
  • Rogue recorded an impressive 11-0 in offline best-of-seven matches in his career, with eight of those victories coming in grand finals.
  • He is the only player to have won IEM Katowice twice, in 2018 and 2020.
  • He won's MVP Award for his impressive performance in the Playoffs of the China Team Championship 2019 Season 2.[1]
  • He has essentially the longest career on the same team out of all the active pros since March 24, 2010, starting in Hwaseung OZ, which disbanded in 2011 and its players transferred into Team 8, which became Jin Air Green Wings in 2013.
