EG to use Blueprint squad for BLAST Showdown
BLAST Premier Spring Showdown is around the corner and all of the Americas top teams are in the competition. With the roster deadline for the event right around the corner, Dust2.us has learned that EG has elected to field their academy squad, EG Black, in place of the main squad.
Additionally, as seen recently in ESL Challenger League and the ESL Challenger Melbourne qualifier, EG Black are set to field Jadan "HexT" Postma in place of Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz, further evidence that the 28-year-old Canadian is set to exit the lineup.
In looking at the Evil Geniuses camp, they have been under a lot of pressure to make a roster change, with Danish import Ismail "refrezh" Ali reportedly making a verbal agreement to replace HexT in the starting lineup. With EG already eyeing a roster change, EG likely felt throwing a moribund roster into the event was a waste of the opportunity and instead elected to give a development opportunity to their academy squad.
The full Evil Geniuses lineup playing in the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown is:
Colby "Walco" Walsh
William "RUSH" Wierzba
Jeorge "jeorge" Endicott
Paytyn "junior" Johnson
Jadan "HexT" Postma (Stand-in)
Tommy "Axed" Ryan (Coach)
Jerric "wiz" Jang (Substitute)
BLAST Premier: Spring American Showdown 2023 is set to start on March 29th.
