Poor second game spelled the doom for EG
October 23, 2018
S4 wasn't in top form against Team Secret at ESL One Hamburg. The veteran finished with a KDA of 5/10/22.
ANALYSIS
S4 kicked off the series with Batrider in Game 1. He had an easy time early on laning against Nisha's Luna. S4 managed an impressive 10 minute Boots of Travel which allowed him to be at the right place at the right time. He was involved in 23 of his team's 30 kills and Secret just couldn't keep up. S4's fortunes turned around in Game 2 with Dragon Knight. On a more greedier hero, s4 just couldn't make the tempo plays he is known for. He died eight times and didn't really amount to much in the 28 minute game.
Settled for a draw against Secret
October 23, 2018
Fly had a good showing against Team Secret as Evil Geniuses settle for a draw at ESL One Hamburg. The Israeli captain finished with a KDA of 4/14/15
ANALYSIS
Fly played Bane in Game 1 of the series. He helped secure a good lane for S4's Batrider. His ward game was also on point as he read Puppey like an open book throughout the easy victory. In Game 2, Fly didn't really do much on his Ogre. He managed to pile the pressure in the very early moments of the game but afterwards he was just free gold for Secret. His ten deaths were the highest in the game.
Erratic performance from EG's star support
October 23, 2018
Cr1t had his ups and downs against Team Secret at ESL One Hamburg. The support finished with a KDA of 4/15/25.
ANALYSIS
Cr1t opened up the series perfectly with his Io play. Alongside Arteezy's Gyrocopter, he managed to take over the game with his early game pressure and sustain. He only died four times which was an impressive feat for the hero. Cr1t did a complete 180 in Game 2 with his Earth Spirit. His rotations didn't do anything for EG as they were dominated by Secret in Game 2.
Stepped up in SumaiL's absence
October 23, 2018
Arteezy stepped up tremendously in SumaiL's absence against Team Secret at ESL One Hamburg. The carry finished with a KDA of 22/8/10.
ANALYSIS
Arteezy's Game 1 with Gyrocopter was a masterclass performance. His partnership with Cr1t allowed him to build a huge early game lead. He topped the opening game in Networth, Kills, Hero Damage, and Building Damage. In Game 2, Arteezy still churned out a commendable performance. He managed a good amount of farm early on but EG couldn't convert it to enough objectives to stay in control of the game.
Highly dominant performance
August 23, 2018
SumaiL continues to have the best stats at The International 2018. The prolific mid laner finished with a KDA of 21/6/32.
ANALYSIS
SumaiL kicked off the series with his signature Storm Spirit. He easily bounced back from his subpar laning stage to pick up kills all over the map. His impressive performance was highlighted by a long Ball Lightning across the map after a quick Bloodstone respawn netted him a Triple Kill. In Game 2, SumaiL's Alchemist was once again the target of VP's early-game aggression. He was killed the most on the EG side, but it didn't slow him down one bit. His 15-minute Radiance secured his 920 gold per minute. Despite being the focus of his opponents, SumaiL still managed a solid game.

Receive a direct invite to The International 2017
June 19, 2017
Valve announced via their official Dota2 website Monday, the direct and regional qualifier invitations for The International 2017. Evil Geniuses received the third direct invite of six.
ANALYSIS
After its recent hot streak, it comes as no shock that Evil Geniuses was invited to this years International. Having spent much of the year on the fringe of elite team status, Evil Geniuses came roaring to life at The Manila Masters and subsequently at Epicenter. Taking first place over Newbee at Manila Masters and then taking second to Epicenter defending champions, Team Liquid, Evil Geniuses is undoubtedly in top form heading into The International and will look to make a run for a second Aegis.
