Just when I thought I was out...

Posted September 2nd 2017

...the game pulls you back in.

September 1, 2017 —  When change needs to be made and you need someone you trust, the first instinct is to look to those closest to you. Evil Geniuses is happy to announce that Clinton "Fear" Loomis will be stepping out of retirement and the coaching role for our Dota 2 roster and back into active competition.

Fear is a player that needs little introduction if you're a fan of Dota 2. He has a storied history with our team and was a crucial part of the EG roster that won The International in 2015.

His experience as one of the most versatile and consistent players the game has ever seen makes him a natural fit to assume the role of captain, drafter, and Position 5 support for our roster. Andreas "Cr1t-" Nielsen, will be moving to the Position 4 support role in order to accomodate this switch.

Clinton also comes into the team after serving as our coach for the 2016/17 Dota 2 season, and is familiar with the needs and playstyles of the team. We look forward to a smooth transition as we prepare for the 2017/18 season.

If you've got questions (and we're sure you do), Monster will be holding an AMA with Fear on their Discord channel shortly after this announcement goes live. You can join the discussion here: http://discord.gg/monstergaming
