There will be North American teams to support in the second half of 2023!
Complexity underlined their commitment to the NA scene Thursday night with the signing of Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski to the team. But what about Evil Geniuses? The Seattle-based organization had been linked with European players such as Audric "JACKZ" Jug, Aleksandr "zorte" Zagodyrenko, and Denis "electroNic" Sharipov during the summer. But none of the above-mentioned players were part of the announcement Saturday evening, where EG made their intentions clear about the future.
The five now former EG Black players will be promoted to the main team, where only Timothy "autimatic" Ta survives from the original team. Vincent "Brehze" Cayonte, Jerric "wiz" Jiang, Ismail "refrezh" Ali, and Sanzhar "neaLaN" Iskhakov have all been benched and will be allowed to search for a new home.
Jadan "HexT" Postma, Colby "Walco" Walsh, Paytyn "junior" Johnson, and Jeorge "Jeorge" Endicott will replace the four players, while the last player from the old EG Black, William "RUSH" Wierzba, will be a 6th player ready to stand-in.
EG also announced the departure of their Danish head coach Daniel "Vorborg" Vorborg, who will also be replaced by the coach of EG Black, Tommy "Axed" Ryan.
