One of Dota 2’s biggest North American teams, Evil Genius’ have made their move with a brand new roster of South American players.

One of Dota 2’s most iconic organizations have entered a new age. The EG roster has dropped their prolific squad for the South American Thunder Awaken roster. Although the shuffle has been rumored for quite some time, its still quite the significant roster move. The North American EG roster has been around since 2015 and has been known as some of North America’s best and brightest.

Evil Genius’ new South American roster

Its sad to say, but its an end of an era. The Evil Genius roster built around Artour “Arteezy” Babaev has been a cornerstone off the North American Dota 2 scene. But due to lackluster performances over the past year, the EG roster shuffle was not a world shattering surprise. Rumors broke out over Twitter concerning the switch, as well as some hints with the announcement from so the community became somewhat prepared for the official announcement.

The new EG roster

The new EG roster comprising of the Thunder Awaken squad of Crhistian “Pakazs” Savina, Jean Pierre “Chris Luck” Gonzales Salazar, Adrián “Whisper” Céspedes Dobles, Farith “Matthew” Puente and Jose “Pandaboo” Padilla have been on quite the rise lately.

With consistent high level play and top-5 finishes at multiple international Dota 2 events. Alongside their coach Juan David “Vintage” Angulo Nicho, the roster has some big shoes to fill. But, knowing the drive that the South Americans have been showing, that should not be a issue at all.

Although we don’t know what will happen to the previous EG roster, but there is no doubt they have the skill to compete at a high level. There are rumors circulating that Arteezy will make his long awaited return to Team Secret. But again, those are just rumors. So stay tuned to to find out and keep updated with all the roster changes and Dota 2 news!
