EG Fails to Meet Expectations with Underwhelming BLAST Fall Groups Lineup

Esports giants Evil Geniuses have failed to meet expectations and deliver a star-studded roster for the BLAST Fall Groups tournament. The team is set to play the tournament with an underwhelming lineup, leaving fans disappointed and questioning their decision making. It is a far cry from the powerhouse lineup that was expected of the organization and it raises questions of how they will perform in the tournament.

Evil Geniuses’ CSGO roster has always been one of the top contenders in the esports scene. The organization has had a lot of success in the past, including winning the StarSeries i-League Season 4 championship in 2018 and taking home first place in the ESL One New York 2019 event. However, recent tournament performances have been lackluster, leaving many fans and analysts questioning what’s next for EG.

For the upcoming BLAST Premier Fall Groups in July, EG has announced that they will field four players from its secondary CSGO roster alongside veteran Timothy “autimatic” Ta. While this is not the lineup fans had hoped for, it’s still a formidable team that will surely put up a good fight. However, the bigger concern lies in EG’s inability to sign star players for the roster.

EG was reportedly trying to sign some big names, including Team Liquid’s franchise player EliGE, Natus Vincere’s star electroNic, the French veteran Audric “JACKZ” Jug, and the Russian AWPer Aleksandr “zorte” Zagodyrenko. Unfortunately, negotiations fell through on June 22, leaving EG without the star power they were hoping for.

Out of the four players promoted to the main roster, junior is the one with the most experience in tier-one, having played with FURIA for a few months last year. Meanwhile, HexT has experience in tier one after playing for EG’s main roster between August 2022 and April 2023. While these players have potential, it remains to be seen whether they can step up and deliver the results that EG needs to stay on top.

In an effort to turn their fortunes around, EG has promoted four players from their EG Black roster to the main team for BLAST Premier Fall Groups. Alongside this move, the organization has brought in Damien “maLeK” Marcel as head coach, who will be tasked with leading the new-look roster.

It remains unclear what the future holds for former head coach Daniel Vorborg, but it’s clear that EG needed to make changes after a string of lackluster performances. The team’s poor showings have led to widespread criticism, and the addition of the EG Black players and maLeK is an attempt to address the issues that have plagued the team.

While many have written EG off as a non-contender, there is still potential for them to surprise everyone at BLAST Premier Fall Groups. With fresh blood on the roster and an experienced coach at the helm, EG may be able to overcome their recent struggles.

EG’s recent performances have earned them a reputation as the laughing stock of CS esports in 2023. However, the promotion of the four EG Black players and the hiring of maLeK demonstrates that the organization is committed to improving their fortunes.

It’s worth noting that the EG Black roster has already outperformed the main team, outranking them in May. This could suggest that the new-look roster has the potential to perform better than many expect.

Only time will tell if EG’s decision to promote the EG Black players and hire maLeK will pay off. But with the BLAST Premier Fall Groups approaching, EG will have the opportunity to prove their detractors wrong and regain their position as a top CS team.
