Taking to Twitter, Nicole LaPointe Jameson wrote that the organization is “committed to making changes to improve CS:GO team results.”
Evil Geniuses’ disastrous campaign reached another low point on Wednesday, April 27, when the team were eliminated from the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown after a 2-0 loss to Brazilian club GODSENT in the first round of the tournament.
It wasn’t the most surprising defeat suffered by this EG roster, but it definitely hurt when it knocked the team out of the running for the BLAST Premier Spring Finals, one of the few international tournaments of the season still up for grabs could qualify.

EG, who had not qualified for PGL Major Antwerpen and IEM Dallas in early April, no longer have a chance to qualify for IEM Cologne, not even through ESL World Rankingin which they are currently in 30th place.

The current Evil Geniuses roster was formed in January when the organization signed Jake “Stewie2K” Yip, William “RUSH” Wierzba and Timothy “autimatic” Ta – bringing back the core of the Cloud9 team that won the 2018 ELEAGUE Major Boston won The trio was paired with Vincent ‘Brehze’ Cayonte and Tsvetelin ‘CeRq’ Dimitrov, two players who have struggled for form over the past two years.
Taking to Twitter, RUSH admitted that the team’s ongoing struggles were “unacceptable.”
“It’s been four months with this team and we’ve achieved nothing and hardly improved,” he wrote.
The struggles of EG’s underperforming CS:GO roster contrast with the success of the organization’s League of Legends team, which is made up of a mix of young players and veterans.
The team won their first-ever LCS title on April 24 after beating 100 Thieves 3-0 in the finals, qualifying for the upcoming Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) in Busan, South Korea.
