One of the longest major gaming organisations, Evil Geniuses formed in 1999, has finally decided to expand into the Overwatch competitive scene. The organisation has fans throughout a variety of games, and has been present in many of the highest levels of competitive game play. Their move to Overwatch is little surprise for many, and there is huge expectation on EG to perform at the highest standard, an expectation not many teams hold.
Evil Geniuses have signed a completed roster, previously going under the team name ‘East Wind’. The roster is based in North America, the biggest home to Overwatch’s competitive tournaments with major prize pools. While the roster isn’t in any particular Overwatch major leagues and have instead been competing in the amature circuit, they have been rapidly improving. From their recent success in the amature circuit, Evil Geniuses decided to sign the team, believing they would be able to qualify for larger tournaments with the help of their management team.
EG Overwatch team :
- Elijah “Elk” Gallagher
- Justin “Kayuun” Ha
- Lucan “Peebimitsu” Nettesheim
- Anthony “Goliath” Pietro
