UPDATE: SADBOYS now confirmed as Evil Geniuses
The North American organization, Evil Geniuses, are set to reveal their new Dota 2 roster with Clinton 'Fear' Loomis once again being the center of this re-building process.
UPDATE: Evil Geniuses announced their official roster of Fear, Universe, Arteezy, PPD and Zai. Charlie "Monolith" Yang, will be joining Evil Geniuses as the new team's official manager.
The players on this roster are immensely talented and have so much potential to offer the scene. Collectively, they’re some of the most individually skilled players in the West and they still have room to grow. This is a team that has a good mix of young passion and the experienced veterans to guide it. They’re a group that is not only singularly dedicated to winning, but believes that they can do so consistently. Their results in the last month speak for themselves. I’m looking forward to working with them and watching them grow not only as players, but as people and professionals.

After months of endless speculations, Evil Geniuses might finally reveal their Dota 2 roster that would go on to compete at major LAN events. Clinton 'Fear' Loomis and Saahil 'Universe' Arora, two of the core members of EG alongside the new Dota 2 prodigy Artour 'Arteezy' Babeav, Ludwig 'zai' Wahlberg and Peter 'ppd' Dagger are all set to lend their services to one of North America's most respected eSports organizations.
Popularly known as SADBOYS, the team has made waves across the community with their excellent plays and synergy that made them win ESP Shock Therapy Cup whilst sitting on an undefeated 19 game winstreak. Although unofficial, it is no secret that Evil Geniuses would be willing to field a super talented team such as this one, to represent their organization.
Hints were dropped on EG's website where the entire Dota 2 team roster was wiped clean except for Fear and Universe, whose profiles remained intact. On the other end, Wykrhm, a popular personality within the scene also tweeted the possible pick up of SADBOYS by EG.

If we're to go by this current trend of news, we might just see the reinvigoration of Evil Geniuses, who at this time, stand as a solid competitor for teams across Europe and Russia. The question still remains, can they get rid of the EG curse?
