North American organization Evil Geniuses are looking for a rebuild of their roster after having a disappointing season in 2021. They parted ways with Peter “stanislaw” Jarguz, Owen “oBo” Schlatter and Michał “MICHU” Müller earlier this year after bombing out of the Legends stage of the PGL Major without a win, going 0-3.
Of the original EG roster From 2019, only 2 members remain, Vincent ‘Brehze’ Cayonte and Tsvetelin “CeRq” Dimitrov, and the team will be looking to rebuild around them. According to neL from 1pv.fr, ex G2 esports coach Damian ‘maLeK’ Marcel has been given the responsibility of building the roster for the 2022 season.
If this is true then Damian ‘daps’ Steele would be leaving the roster after coming on as coach in June 2021, following a brief tenure in Valorant.
Team Liquid was also reported to be shuffling their roster and the players’ comments after their final game at BLAST Premier World Finals confirm that. This move will free up Jake ‘stewie2k’ Yip and according to sources he will be joining EG.
EG are also in talks with Timothy ‘autimatic’ Ta, who has been plying his trade in Valorant for the past year with T1. autimatic was one of the core members of Gen.g when they were a part of CS and he played with them until the end, when they decided to pull out of CS:GO. He had to move to Valorant as a result, but he is reportedly making a come back.
Timothy also teased a comeback by posting a picture of himself and stewie2k at the ELEAGUE Boston Major 2018.
This move will reunite the Boston Major winning duo of stewie2k and autimatic as they look to reignite the North American CSGO scene, already being fan favourites. All parties are still in talks but if all things go right, the Evil Geniuses CSGO roster could shape up the following way for 2022:
- Jake “Stewie2K” Yip
- Timothy “autimatic” Ta
- Vincent “Brehze” Cayonte
- Tsvetelin “CeRq” Dimitrov
- Damien “maLeK” Marcel (coach)
