EG is currently planning to compete with 4 Zoomers in just a few hours. after notification.
Evil Geniuses has also confirmed that the Russian player is expected to return to the squad after the end of season 1.
Evil Geniuses was forced to use MSS as a support
MSS has been a free agent since the end of his stint with Quincy Crew at TI10 and can therefore temporarily join as a sub. This player brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience, which is expected to benefit EG for the rest of the DPC season.
This is the second time that the North American Dota 2 team has had trouble getting a Russian foreigner to its campaign. Earlier in 2020, EG was unable to bring Roman “RAMZES666“Kushnarev came into his bootcamp and therefore had to compete with standings in multiple tournaments including ESL One Birmingham, BTS Pro Series: Americas and ESL One Los Angeles. .
MSS’s previous stint with Evil Geniuses was in 2014, where he competed alongside the likes of Clinton “Fear” Loomis and Ioannis “Fogged” Loucas. However, he was relatively unsuccessful during this period that lasted only about six months. Since then, he has grown and succeeded in many other rosters, most notably Quincy Crew. It will be interesting to see if his comeback is successful.
Evil Geniuses’ decision to give up could also be a fluke in fallacy as the team hasn’t really found too much success this DPC season. At the time of this writing, NA’s top players are languishing in 4-5th place on the scoreboard and only have one outside slot to make it to the first starting list. The addition of MSS, though forced, could prove to be the spark the team needs to get back to form.
