Rumors: Evil Geniuses will move to South AmericaS0d
Oleksii 'STORM' Tumanov, a Ukrainian analyst and commentator, reported on social media that Evil Geniuses may change their region. Also, the same information was spread by Kenny Utama, a journalist. The team, historically performing in North America, plans to move to South America. Along with this, the current Dota 2 roster will be disbanded.
The reason for this decision was the weak performance of EG at The International 2022. The team stopped at 9-12th place. Having won group A, Arteezy and the team lost to Thunder Awaken in the upper bracket with a score of 0:2, and then to Beastcoast with a similar result. EG earned $378,612 for their performance.
It is worth noting that both teams are representatives of South America. From the players of these teams, a new composition of Evil Geniuses will be formed.
Estimated new composition of Evil Geniuses is presented below:
- Chris Luck
