MICHU, oBo and stanislaw leave Evil Geniuses » TalkEsport

Evil Geniuses announced via Twitter that In-game leader Peter ‘stanislaw’ Jarguz, Owen ‘oBo’ Schlatter and Michal ‘MICHU’ Muller will leave their roster, active immediately. MICHU was the latest addition to the roster after the benching of Tarik ‘tarik’ Celik, while ‘oBo’ came on to replace Ethan ‘Ethan’ Arnold who joined 100Ts Valorant team. Stanislaw had been part of EG ever since their return to CS:GO, and was also a part of the NRG roster that came 3-4th at the StarLadder Berlin Major 2019.

The move comes after an all-time low ranking for the org when they dropped down to #40 in the world. Evil geniuses only have 9 map wins in the last 3 months and 26 losses, which is less than respectable in every way for a team that used to be #1 in the world in 2019.

EG had changing rosters, and players taking breaks for mental health, which is understandable but it did affect their performance in the long run. The return of Damian ‘daps’ Steele as coach couldn’t soften the blows either as EG just couldn’t compete with their NA counterparts.

EG made it to the Legends stage after defeating EXTREMUM in the NA RMR – IEM Fall, and already had some RMR points from before. Their performance at the Major was exactly as people expected as they went out 0-3 without a series win under their belt. This was the expected trend as EG didn’t win a single series at EPL S14 either, and also went out of BLAST Fall Showdown in 9-16th place. 

The two remaining members of EG are Vincent ‘Brehze’ Cayonte and AWPer Tsevetelin ‘CeRq’ Dimitrov. The two are the only remaining members of the NRG core of old, which consisted of Ethan as well and was led by ‘daps’ as IGL. 

Evil Geniuses also said they remain committed to North American CS:GO and plan to rebuild around the two remaining members for 2022. And with a lot of teams undergoing roster changes at the moment, this could be EG’s chance to get back to the top with a new lineup. 

As things stands, EG’s roster is:

  • Vincent ‘Brehze’ Cayonte
  • Tsevetelin ‘CeRq’ Dimitrov
  • Damian ‘daps’ Steele (coach)
