Evil Geniuses are the fourth team to receive a direct invitation to ESL One New York and will be joining Team Secret, Virtus.Pro and CDEC at the Madison Square Garden in New York City, between October 3rd and 4th.
Evil Geniuses have been directly invited to ESL One New York. The North-American overlords will compete against Team Secret, Virtus.Pro, CDEC and four other teams yet to be determined for the $250,000 base prize-pool.
Less than a month ago, Evil Geniuses managed to turn the odds to their favor and claim the coveted TI5 Aegis of Champions and $6.6 million in prize money, thus becoming the first American team to win The International. In a surprising turn of events, Kurtis “Aui” Ling was let go and replaced by Artour “Arteezy” Babaev not long after EG became The International 5 champions.
Evil Geniuses roster
