Professional esports team organization, Evil Geniuses (EG), is one of the best collectives in the esports industry. Their members are present across multiple major league tournaments of the top esports titles around the world. You can see their name at a high position in league standings from games like Dota 2, League of Legends, CS:GO, and Fighting Game Communities (FGC).
EG has made strategic decisions for improving fan engagement, training, and funding for the whole team. These include new partnerships, roster changes, and lineup preparations before the international play. Here is everything you need to know about your favourite geniuses for the 2022 esports season.
Bitcasino partners up with EG to support their endeavours at CS:GO, Dota 2, and FGC. These players will represent both EG and Bitcasino in their esport jersey along with other sponsors. Look forward to seeing the following active members playing for the team this season.
Two key members of the Evil Geniuses’ CS:GO team are currently unavailable, Peter ‘Stanislaw’ Jarguz and Vincent ‘Brehze’ Cayonte. According to EG, both members have requested to take a leave for BLAST Fall Groups for a chance to recover their mental health. Regardless, the team is still represented by strong players.
EG coach, Damian ‘daps’ Steele, is playing as the fourth member while Teodor ‘SPELLAN’ Nikolov is joining the roster as a stand-in. The remaining members are Cvetelin ‘CeRq’ Dimitrov, Owen ‘oBo’ Schlatter, and Michał ‘MICHU’ Müller who are part of the main squad. Stanislaw and Brehze are expected to return for the IEM Fall North America with daps resuming his position as coach.
Evil Geniuses struggled in the group stage but was able to secure a comfortable position in the lower bracket of The International. It was a close fight as EG only needed a 2-0 win to join the upper bracket but team Undying managed to end the match with a tie. The opportunity is for the title is still fresh as team EG still has all of its key players:
- Artour ‘Arteezy’ Babaev
- Daryl Koh ‘iceiceice’ Pei Xiang
- Abed ‘Abed’ Yusop
- Andreas ‘Cr1t’ Nielsen
- Tal ‘Fly’ Aizik
With EVO 2021 cancelled, Evil Geniuses’ FGC team remains reserved for a different esport. It’s such a shame because they have recently signed up two of the most formidable fighting game players in esports, Dominique ‘SonicFox’ McLean and Jon ‘dekillsage’ Coello. Both of them joined EG on 18th March 2020 and have represented the team ever since. Long-time member Ricki ‘HelloKittyRicki’ Ortiz is also a force to be reckoned with as she is known as a legendary player in Street Fighter.
Bitcasino partners up with EG for the Fall 2021 season moving forward. This increases the EG organization’s stability in the esport industry, ensuring support for all of its members across all campaigns.
This partnership also includes activations for the team around the world so stay tuned for such events near you. As a bonus for the fans, EG presents an obstacle course custom map at the Steam Workshop. The map includes agility and aiming courses with a series of challenges to complete.
Evil Geniuses continue to be a strong contender for CS:GO but it will return to full power in the next competition. The Dota 2 team, on the other hand, fell to the lower bracket after a close fight but they have the potential to make it to place high in The International. The EG FGC team is formidable but EVO 2021 is cancelled for this year. Bitcasino partners up with EG, making the organization stronger.
Evil Geniuses continue to hone its current members in their respective fields. Follow them all on Twitch, Twitter, or Instagram and stay updated with the state of the team in esports. You may also follow them to play games outside of tournaments or explore EG members from other games.
