Here's the latest addition to EG's roster.
Evil Geniuses is one of the best Dota 2 teams in the world. However, the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on their performance. Consequently, Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev was benched. Although he is one of the best CIS players in the world, his high ping didn’t allow him to utilize his full potential.
Who’s the newest addition to the team?

After RAMZES666 left the squad, Evil Geniuses started to look for a new player. It only took them a few days because today they announced the addition of Daryl Koh “iceiceice” Pei Xiang. He is one of the most legendary Dota 2 players with over 15 years of experience playing for numerous teams, mainly in the SEA region.
Apart from SEA, iceiceice also played for several Chinese teams. Even if they weren’t performing that well, the offlane superstar always impressed with this unique playstyle. In fact, he is widely regarded as one of the best Timbersaw players in the world.
Despite his incredible career, this player has not won TI yet. He was close with Team DK and Vici Gaming back in the day, but he couldn’t lift the trophy. His last team was Fnatic, a team that he joined back in 2018. During his time there, the team was the best in SEA, but due to COVID, Fnatic was unable to shine in the international scene.
Now, iceiceice decided it’s time to change to regions again, so he will make the move to NA. Here is EG’s complete roster:
- Artour “Arteezy” Babaev
- Azel “Abed” Yusop
- Daryl Koh “iceiceice” Pei Xiang
- Andres Franck “Cr1t-” Nielsen
- Tal “Fly” Aizik
