Following a particularly lackluster elimination from ESL One Birmingham, Evil Geniuses decided to relieve MiSeRy and Fear of their duties with further updates looming.

Rasmus ‘MiSeRy’ Filipsen lit up the twitter-verse today with the announcement of his departure from Evil Geniuses. Since his arrival Evil Geniuses have experienced limited success with a notable performance at ESL One Genting 2018 and having won only GESC: Indonesia Minor. Shortly after, Clinton ‘Fear’ Loomis made a similar announcement.

The honeymoon period after their minor victory faded quickly and the squad struggled to overcome Dota 2 juggernauts like Virtus.pro and Team Liquid. Further difficulties emerged down the final stretch of the DPC season as they were eliminated from events by Keen Gaming and Team Spirit.

Evil Geniuses thanked MiSeRy for his efforts with the team via twitter. Part of the statement included news that an update on the roster will be issued some time before the Supermajor begins. The tournament is scheduled to begin June 2. Evil Geniuses have also released an update on Facebook thanking both players.

The roster change means Evil Geniuses is removed from qualifying for The International 2018 by way of DPC points. They will also forego a direct invite to the regional qualifiers and be forced to compete in a highly anticipated NA open qualifier. They will be joined by the likes of compLexity, Immortals and a significantly improved VGJ.Storm.

Was the roster change worth disqualifying themselves from potentially earning a direct invite to The International 2018?

  • Aoi "alkermes" Kasuga ,
    should get Jerax&S4. might be EG_v2.0 or OG_v2.0 LUL
  • roberto "rotesoro1" tesoro ,
    EG.Kyle and EG.Forev?
  • jaycinth "haringhacinto2" reyes ,
    What are you waiting for Fnatic, kick EE now.
  • Raditya "Raadtraa" Putra ,
    Well, I guess only Optic got the regional invite. NA need some real challenges.
  • Number 1 "clariska" of Number 99 ,
    People ask Resolution to join EG.Would be a great move but not so sure how that will work with rtz and sumail there.
  • "Booncz" ,
    can smbdy tell me how many big teams are in the open qualifiers for each region? NA - EG+coL+VGJ.Storm? (competing for 2 slots in regional qualifier?) CIS- Na'vi, EU -OG
    • Rexonial "Dancingwar" Bebb ,
      I think, there are not enough teams to receive the regional invite. So a lot of slots will be given to the open qual. Not just 2
  • Mighty "tharpy" Dote ,
    Just wanna see Sumail mid again
  • river "riverbird" bird ,
    Mineski and VG just bought tickets to TI and unless TNC make top two at the Super Major Newbee and VGJ.T also looking a lock.
    • Tian Yi "v3luotianyi" Luo ,
      "unless TNC make top two at the Super Major" - impossible. "anything can happen" is a lazy reason, an insult for those who are exceptionally talented and for those who do hardwork
