June 28, 2021 –
Our VALORANT roster will debut new talent as they prepare for Stage 3 of The VALORANT Champions Tour.
With these additions, the team will be parting ways with Aleksandar “Aleksandar” Hinojosa, Claudia “Clawdia” Che, and Ronan “Osias” Javelona.
“Based on our team’s performance over the first two Stages of VCT, we felt changes were necessary to progress towards the level of success expected at EG,” said Andrew Barton, General Manager. “As members of our inaugural VALORANT roster Aleksandar, Clawdia, and Osias will always have our thanks and appreciation for their commitment and hard work.”
“Moving forward, after significant scouting, trialing, and testing, we believe we have assembled a team that can adapt with the evolving VALORANT meta,” continues Barton. “We are thrilled to introduce the newest Evil Geniuses to fans and to see them compete in VCT.”
The new roster will be competing this week in the Nerd Street Gamers: Summer Championship, before taking on the VCT Stage 3 open qualifiers this weekend. For today’s matches tune and watch the team live at 1pm PT on twitch.tv/nerdstreet.
