Evil Geniuses is a North American League of Legends team. For the organization's history as a European team, see Evil Geniuses.EU.

Founded in 1999, Evil Geniuses is a North American esports organization and one of the oldest in the world, that has had a collection of players/teams over a multitude of games such as: Counter Strike 1.6, Counter Strike; Global Offensive, DotA 2, League of Legends, Quake Live, StarCraft II, Super Street Fighter IV, and World of Warcraft. In late 2012 to the start of 2013, Team EG had started looking for a roster to support in the League of Legends scene. The organization formed their first League of Legends team in January 2013 with the acquisition of the former Counter Logic Gaming EU roster.[1]

History[edit]

Pre-Season 4[edit]

In December 2013, Evil Geniuses moved the gaming house to America and acquired the spot from Velocity eSports at the promotion stage for taking a spot into NA LCS. However, mid laner Henrik "Froggen" Hansen and top laner Mike "Wickd" Petersen left the team and formed Alliance to acquire the Evil Geniuses's spot in the EU LCS.[2] At the promotion tournament, Evil Geniuses defeated Determined Gaming 3-0 and solidified their position in the North American LCS.

2015 Preseason[edit]

Due to a new policy limiting the ability of GoodGame Agency to brand LCS teams instituted by Riot on November 21, Evil Geniuses will have to change their brand for the 2015 season.[3] Their NA LCS spot ultimately went to Winterfox.
