Evil Geniuses, one of the top teams in Dota 2, has made significant changes to its roster. After parting ways with captain Rasmus “MiSeRy” Filipsen, another longtime player, Clinton “Fear” Loomis, has also left the team. This leaves the roster with Artour “Arteezy” Babaev, Sumail “Suma1L” Hassan, and Andreas “Cr1t-” Nielsen. The decision comes after EG’s disappointing performance at ESL One Birmingham, where they had their worst placement since The International 2017.
Fear has been with Evil Geniuses for the past seven years and has been a key member of the team, winning multiple championships, including The International 2015. Even when not on the active roster, Fear always found a way to contribute and support the team. However, both sides have decided to part ways, and it seems they are ready to move on.
This roster change comes just months before The International 2018, the biggest and most lucrative esports event of the year. EG’s decision to shake up their roster at this critical time shows their determination to improve and win the tournament.
Fans and critics are now left wondering who Evil Geniuses will bring in to replace the departing players. The anticipation for their new lineup is palpable as The International approaches.
