Evil Geniuses have been directly invited to ESL One New York. The North-American overlords will compete against Team Secret, Virtus.Pro, CDEC and four other teams yet to be determined for the $250,000 base prize-pool.
Less than a month ago, Evil Geniuses managed to turn the odds to their favor and claim the coveted TI5 Aegis of Champions and $6.6 million in prize money, thus becoming the first American team to win The International. In a surprising turn of events, Kurtis “Aui” Ling was let go and replaced by Artour “Arteezy” Babaev not long after EG became The International 5 champions.
