Evil Geniuses Announce A New Dota 2 Roster

Evil Geniuses completed its transition to South America with a new roster
by Tit Krajnik on November 24, 2022   

Just a month following the speculations of Evil Geniuses moving to South America for the 2023 Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) season, the North American esports organization completed the move. As revealed on Wednesday, November 23, Evil Geniuses acquired a new South American Dota 2 roster, spearheaded by the former Thunder Awaken core.


New Evil Geniuses Dota 2 roster will feature former beastcoast players in Jose "Pandaboo" Hernandez, Jean "Chris Luck" Salazar, and the former Thunder Awaken trio Crhistian "Pakazs" Casanova, Farith "Matthew" Huamancaja, and Jose "Pandaboo" Hernandez. The squad will be led by former Latam Defenders, Infinity, and Thunder Awaken coach Juan David "Vintage" Angulo Nicho.

By signing a new lineup, Evil Geniuses completed the complete roster restructure, which began with the North American organization dropping its 2022 roster on November 15. At the time, EG also parted ways with two long-standing members, Artour "Arteezy" Babaev and Andreas "Cr1t-" Nielsen, who have been with the team since 2016.

It is currently unclear what will happen with EG's former roster, but as rumored, the core will remain together and compete in North America in the upper DPC division, previously held by Evil Geniuses.

This marks the first time Evil Geniuses will enter the South American Dota 2 scene, chasing higher heights than EG have achieved this past season. Granted, Evil Geniuses had a fairly successful run through the 2022 DPC.

The NA squad kicked off the year with a runner-up finish at DPC NA 2021/2022 Tour 1: Regional Final and two titles in the second and third Tour. However, despite their domestic success, EG couldn't show up internationally, crashing out of ESL One Stockholm 2022 in 13th, PGL Arlington Major 2022 in ninth-12th, and The International 2022 in ninth-12th place.

But before EG can finalize the move, the organization still needs to acquire a spot in the upper division of the South American DPC. Although nothing has yet to be confirmed, reports suggest that SG Esports is closing down its Dota 2 division, which would free up a spot for Evil Geniuses, who would otherwise have to fight through the qualifiers or the second division to secure a spot in the top league.
