Evil Geniuses tossed out from IEM Brazil qualifier by lower-tier team

Another tough blow for the North American squad as they fail to qualify for $250.000 LAN tournament in Brazil.

Evil Geniuses should be a dominant force in North American Counter-Strike.

With their history of great results, the resources and backing from their organization, and the current state of NA CS:GO in mind, Evil Geniuses SHOULD be a heavy-hitter in the region. But that’s not the case at all.

Last night Vincent “Brehze” Cayonte and the rest of the team experienced yet another setback, as they failed to qualify for the closed qualifier for IEM Brazil, which is the last step before the top-tier LAN event later this year.

In the open qualifier, EG came extremely close to elimination in the very first round against an unranked mix called “Demon Time” that caused the Geniuses massive problems in the best-of-one series.

However, EG couldn’t survive the scare from the 19-17 OT-thriller when they met ATK in the semifinal resulting in a devastating 16-14 loss and one less LAN tournament to conquest in 2023.

Daniel Vorborg, Evil Geniuses head coach, reacts to the loss and elimination here.
