Easilyy Joins the Susquehanna Soniqs, Goddess Steps Down

All News

UPDATE: Former Rogue player Easilyy is joining the Susquehanna Soniqs, replacing Goddess, who has announced that she will be stepping down from the roster.

One of the last remaining members of  the former Rogue roster has found a new home, with Kevin Easilyy Skokowski has joined the Susquehanna Soniqs in the North American Challenger League. Following Rogue's relegation in Season 10 of the Pro League, the team had disbanded, with Easilyy having been the last member to find a new team to play for.

Easilyy will be replacing Lauren “Goddess” Williams , who has annnounced that she will be stepping down from the Susquehanna Soniqs playing roster that is gearing up for Season 11 of the Challenger League. However, she will be staying on with the organisation as part of the staff, likely in a management, streaming, or even a coaching role.

The Rogue roster disbanded following relegation, with three of the five members having found a new roster prior to this move. This now makes Easilyy the 4th player from the former roster to find a new team. Joining Easilyy in this transition will be fan favorite Ela, the corgi, as he rejoins Seth “supr” Hoffman after the two had been teammates on Rogue.

Easilyy had joined Rogue just prior to the Six Invitational 2018, making it to the semi-finals immediately, before repeating the feat in Atlantic City at the Season 7 Finals -- then falling to PENTA Sports (now G2 Esports). Consistent semi-final appearances seemed to become the norm for this new Rogue roster, with Easilyy being a large part of the team's Six Major Paris performance as well. Throughout this time, Rogue would finish third at DreamHack Austin 2018 and joint-fifth at DreamHack Valencia 2018 as well, with Rogue trying out a way to take home a title.

The team would get very close right after the Paris Major, but Easilyy and his teammates would then lose the grand final of DreamHack Montreal 2018 to Goddess and her Cloud9 team as the two teams fought to bring an international title back to North America. Despite being first-rounded at the Season 8 Finals, Rogue bounced back and Easilyy won his first title at the US Nationals 2018 Finals, but the new year would kickstart a downward spiral for the team.

Rogue would exit the Six Invitational 2019 without a win, then fail to qualify to the Pro League Finals for the first time since Season 7 (Season 6 for Easilyy), and would lose the first knockout game at the Allied Esports Minor. DreamHack Valencia, though, would be a bright spot though as the team would win its first international title, but joint-ninth at the Six Major Raleigh, joint-fifth at DreamHack Montreal 2019, and relegation would see the team eventually fall apart.

In the announcement video, Goddess said that she would be streaming the game more often, and also confirmed an upcoming Rainbow Six focused weekly show, tackling Siege-related information, news, and drama.

Goddess began her career on the Secret Shadows roster on the Xbox, attempting to qualify for the Six Invitational 2017, losing the first qualifier to her next team of SoaR Gaming, which she would join in Season 5. Qualifying for the Challenger League on PC with that team, she would nearly make it to the Pro League with the Reckless roster in Season 5, but lose to Flipsid3 Tactics (now DarkZero Esports).

A strong run in the North American qualifier for the Six Invitational 2018 would see Reckless finish just second to eRa Eternity, but Goddess and her team would finally get a break in Season 7 after relegating the Counter Logic Gaming roster after being signed by Beastcoast. A decent run at DreamHack Austin 2018 would see her team make it to the playoffs and would attract the attention of the mammoth Cloud9 organisation.

After some difficulty and failures, Goddess and the Cloud9 roster would see success at DreamHack Montreal 2018, beating Rogue to win the first international title for North America in over a year. The US Nationals 2018 Finals would see the team get to the semi-finals but lose to Evil Geniuses, but a decision to drop her prior to the Six Invitational 2019 would mean she would find her way to Elephant Gang in the Challenger League.

Immediately, Goddess would mark a return to the Pro League after finishing second in Season 9 of the Challenger League, and would also make it to the playoffs of DreamHack Montreal 2019 again. However, an eighth place finish in Season 10 of the Challenger League would see the team fight and lose in relegations to Obey Alliance (now eUnited). Another semi-finals appearance at the US Nationals would then follow, but it would be the last time Goddess would be featuring as a player for the Soniqs and reduce the number of recent female Pro League players to just one (Kaya "Loona" Omori on Team SiNister).
