Evil Geniuses will be playing in Europe for Omega League and have secured Danil "gpk" Skutin from Gambit as a stand-in player. 

Evil Geniuses have already joined the ranks of playing with the big dogs of Europe for the Omega League event underway. This pits them with all of the top teams they are used to competing against at LAN events, however, they will be doing so with not just ping from NA to EU but also a stand-in player. 

In place of  Abed 'Abed' Yusop who is in SEA at the moment and would be near impossible to play with the ping issues, Evil Geniuses secured Danil "gpk" Skutin on loan from Gambit for the next month. 

It has been quite some time since the full EG roster has been able to play together - since March when the Coronavirus started to create chaos in esports. At least this round they will be able to play with famed Russian teammate Roman "Ramzes666" Kushnarev. 

Evil Geniuses are seeded in Group A, along with Alliance, Team Nigma, Virtus.pro, Natus Vincere, and the closed regional winners 5men. Their first series is scheduled for the second day of the group play on Saturday, August 15th.

Canada Artour “Arteezy” Babaev
Russia Danil "gpk" Skutin
