Evil Geniuses are changing their team. William “RUSH” Wierzba is also in contention to join the side.
Evil Geniuses have signed Jacky “Stewie2K” Yip from Cloud9. The side has also announced the signing of Timothy “autimatic” Ta and are yet to make the signing of RUSH official.
We're putting together an explosive roster.

The rumors linked Stewie2K with the side for a long time. He has finally joined the North American org and will be soon alongside his former teammates who were great as a trio at Cloud9 and had achieved success together.
The arrival of autimatic is interesting as he has come out of retirement from Counter-Strike. The 25-year-old was competing in Valorant with Gen.G Esports. Autimatic will not be the main awper for EG, meaning he can concentrate on a single role better.
Stewie2K will become the In-Game Leader for EG. He is experienced in communicating and effective decision making in-game. With tons of experience from Cloud9 and Team Liquid, Stewie will definitely look to turn things around at EG.
Evil Geniuses have had a poor season in 2021. It's been a long time since the side has won a trophy. However, the organization will look to change that in the upcoming tours and these roster changes are definitely a step in the right direction.
