Autimatic, CeRq, Stewie2K, and Brehze already know their teammates. The best CS: GO returns to NA. Evil Geniuses already has its definitive roster, with the three new additions already “leaked” by its CEO a few days ago. Three Major champions join an organization that has been beefed up nicely this start of the year. Vincent “Brehze” Cayonte and Tsvetelin “CeRq” Dimitrov will debut with their new teammates in the BLAST Premier Spring Groups.
William “RUSH” Wierzba, Jake “Stewie2K” Yip, and Timothy “autimatic” Ta are already EG players. A few days ago, Nicole LaPointe Jameson, CEO of Evil Geniuses, published a series of tweets in which she danced with her organization’s possible roster. Everything pointed to the fact that it was totally true. But the coldness with which it was announced invited us to be cautious with its confirmation. Despite this, during this week, the signings of Stewie, autimatic, and RUSH have been confirmed one by one.
EG takes over the trio of Americans who won the 2018 ELEAGUE Major with Cloud9. That was four years ago, but the objective of the North American organization is to return to compete on the international scene. Stewie arrives from Team Liquid, While RUSH from a convulsive Complexity. For its part, automatic returns to the Valve shooter after testing in Valorant. Former G2 Esports coach Malek will field five very competitive players this season.
NA teams want to compete in 2022
The North American organizations are being reinforced especially well these last weeks. In addition to EG, Team Liquid has notable players such as Shox or nitr0 on its roster. Complexity has taken over the Extra Salt roster plus junior and Grim. After two years with a low level in the NA scene and the Louvre agreement signed a few days ago, it seems that the organizations in this region want to make war in 2022.
After the last three additions, the Evil Geniuses roster will be:
- Vincent “Brehze” Cayonte
- Tsvetelin “CeRq” Dimitrov
- Jake “Stewie2K” Yip
- Timothy “automatic” Ta
- William “RUSH” Wierzba
