Evil Geniuses will bring in on a stand-in basis the Gambit Esports mid lane player Danil “gpk” Skutin to compete alongside them starting this coming Friday, August 14 in the Europe and CIS Immortal division of OMEGA League.
Unfortunately, EG haven’t been able to reunite with their mid lane player Abed Yusop since March, when the coronavirus worldwide lockdown caught him in the Philippines. EG fought in the many online tournaments that unfolded over the past several months without both Abed and Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev.
OMEGA League will mark the first official tournament for the Russian former carry, now turned offlane with his team since DOTA Summit 12, where EG took third place.
Unfortunately for Abed, the wait to return to his position in the Evil Geniuses roster will take a little bit longer, and until then, the North American powerhouse squad will fight for a chance at the OMEGA League title with gpk. The information was made public by gpk’s team, Gambit Esports, while Evil Geniuses haven’t announced anything official just yet.
Evil Geniuses roster for OMEGA League from position 1 to 5:
- Artour “Arteezy” Babaev
- Danil “gpk” Skutin (stand-in)
- Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev
- Andreas “Cr1t-” Nielsen
- Tal “Fly” Aizik
Evil Geniuses are seeded in the Group A of the Immortal division alongside Alliance, Team Nigma, Virtus.pro, Natus Vincere and the closed regional winners 5men. Their first series is scheduled for the second day of the group play, on the 15th of August against 5men.
