Evil Geniuses have announced big roster changes, they will be releasing Saahil ‘UNiVeRsE‘ Arora and Avery ‘SVG‘ Silverman from their roster, as they would like to welcome Rasmus ‘MiSeRy‘ Filipsen, and a brand new coach Sam ‘Bulba‘ Sosale.
If we look back on their form this season, they did pretty well but not impressive. Failing to advance in the Dota Summit 8 Playoffs, they have finished 3rd at the DreamLeague Major where they lost to Team Liquid and possible winners, Team Secret. and top 4 at the PGL Open Bucharest. However, this roster has lifted some amazing trophies over the last few years, including the biggest one The International 5.
Misery as a new captain of EG
MiSeRy is undoubtedly a veteran of Dota 2 scene, he has played for the Evil Geniuses back in 2011-2012. Throughout his career, he has done some remarkable job, especially last year with Digital Chaos where he captained his team to 2nd place at TI6, he also played for many different rosters and on many different roles.
I am honored to have gotten the offer to join EG as Captain. I am very excited about this team and i can’t wait to get started.
– Rasmus ‘MiSeRy’ Filipsen
Besides playing the support role along with Andreas ‘Cr1t-‘ Nielsen, Misery will become their new captain. What is even more surprising is that Sumail ‘SumaiL‘ Syed Hassan is switching his role to take over offlane, and Clinton ‘Fear‘ Loomis’s the EG veteran will be moving to mid-lane.
Have been playing offlane from the midlane for a year now, lets see how this one turns out. #BleedBlue

Farewell to SVG, Bulba back to coaching
Avery ‘SVG‘ Silverman has served as Evil Geniuses full-time coach since the Manila Masters. Sooner or later we’re hoping to see SVG back on the competitive scene. Although, the former EG player, Sam ‘Bulba‘ Sosale who has been part of EG organization back in 2012 – 2016, both in the active roster and coach role is back in the role of head coach. Looking forward to helping the team to adapt their new roles and thrive in the months ahead.
Lets not forget the DISASTER Echo Slam Dunk at TI5
