Evil Geniuses bring back former analyst

Amidst Evil Geniuses' complex shuffle, Hepa has made his return.

Juan "Hepa" Borges has announced that he will be returning to Evil Geniuses in analyst position. This move comes almost three months after the Spaniard was initially released from the organization after conflicts emerged between Jake "Stewie2K" Yip and Evil Geniuses' coaching staff.

Hepa was first brought onto Evil Geniuses in late January, a part of the North American organization's efforts to revamp its lineup after a lackluster 2021. Unfortunately for the team, Evil Geniuses continued to struggle in 2022, with their poor performances culminating in missing out on the PGL Antwerp Major 2022. Soon afterward, head coach Damien "maLeK" Marcel was moved to the bench, while assistant coach Paolo "EVY" Berbudeau and HEPA were released from the team, with the duo only finding out when the organization announced the change on Twitter.

The readdition of Hepa to the squad is one of many changes made to Evil Geniuses' lineup over the course of the player break. The most notable of the recent changes is to the main roster, which has seen former K23 IGL Sanzhar "neaLaN" Iskhakov link up with the North American organization while Jadan "HexT" Postma has been promoted from EG.CD, filling the two spots left behind by the benchings of Stewie2K and William "RUSH" Wierzba. Additionally, the squad has also seen former Copenhagen Flames owner Daniel "Vorborg" Vorborg join the roster in the coach position.

The main lineup is not the only one of Evil Geniuses' three squads to be tweaked, as EG.CD has seen further changes in addition to HexT's promotion. Anthony "CLASIA" Kearney was recently benched from the lineup, with "lingering attitude issues" being cited as the reason for the move. In the young gun's place is veteran IGL Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz, who reunites with the organization after having previously split ways with Evil Geniuses in November of 2021.

Evil Geniuses' main lineup is now:

  • United States Vincent "Brehze" Cayonte

  • Tsvetelin "CeRq" Dimitrov

  • United States Timothy "autimatic" Ta

  • Sanzhar "neaLaN" Iskhakov

  • Canada Jadan "HexT" Postma

  • Denmark Daniel "Vorborg" Vorborg (Coach)

  • Juan "Hepa" Borges (Analyst)

  • United States William "RUSH" Wierzba (Inactive)

Hepa will be working hard in the next few weeks to get Evil Geniuses' revitalized lineup ready for the BLAST Premier Fall Groups, which are set to begin on August 19th.
