Hot off the heels of Team Liquid losing their entire roster as KuroKy and company decided to go independent, Evil Geniuses have announced some massive changes to their roster as the post-TI shuffle continues. This is arguably the biggest post-TI shuffle news yet for Dota 2 fans to digest, as one departure will be completely unexpected for Evil Geniuses fans. In short, SumaiL and S4 are out for the upcoming DPC season.
Evil Geniuses announced two big departures and their replacements in a post on Facebook. Before we get into what the esports organization had to say, let’s just pull the bandaid off and look at the new roster, from position one to position 5.
- Artour “Arteezy” Babaev
- Abed “Abed” Azel L. Yusop
- Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev
- Andreas “Cr1t-” Nielsen
- Tal “Fly” Aizik
As you can see, SumaiL has been replaced with an ex-Fnatic player known for his Meepo plays and the first-ever player to reach 10,000 MMR back in the day, Abed. Then, S4 is also out and replaced by RAMZES666 as the new offlane player for the squad. Evil Geniuses first explains the departure of these two massive players, stating that:
