Evil Geniuses
United States
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.
Shows off his veteran smarts
August 23, 2018
S4 had yet another solid performance for Evil Geniuses as they sweep Virtus.pro at The International 2018. The Swede finished with a KDA of 14/8/28.
ANALYSIS
S4 played Pugna in the first game of the series. He shut down Ramzes on his Necrophos pretty efficiently. S4 camped down the bottom lane for extended periods of time as VP just struggled to deal with him. In Game 2, S4 was once again key in the Evil Geniuses win with Venomancer. His poor laning stage didn't slow his impact down. He was important in controlling up the Ursa and Tiny with his Plague Wards and Venomous Gale.
Makes up for rough game with 43 assists
August 23, 2018
Cr1t was rough around the edges but Evil Geniuses still took the win against Virtus.pro. The support finished with a KDA of 3/16/43.
ANALYSIS
Cr1t started the series with support Chen. His early pressure through excellent creep micro killed Ramzes often in the early game. He was constantly involved with his team as he scored the game-high 18 assists. In Game 2, Cr1t shifted over to Vengeful Spirit. He was still always in the right place at the right time with his saving plays.
Impactful series from last Canadian at TI
August 23, 2018
Arteezy played his heart out as the last Canadian player against Virtus.pro at The International 2018. The carry finished with a KDA of 17/10/28.
ANALYSIS
Arteezy played his niche Drow Ranger in the first game of the series. His laning stage well went pretty smoothly as he managed the game-high 24 denies. He was solid in his positioning throughout the game against VP's aggression, managing to only die three times. In Game 2, Arteezy stepped up in a big way with his Mirana. He was constantly involved with his team through Moonlight Shadows and efficient rotations. Arteezy was involved in 26 of his team's 38 kills in the rout.
Game changing Nether Swaps
August 21, 2018
Cr1t was the Evil Geniuses lifeline against Secret. The Danish support finished with a KDA of 7/18/45.
ANALYSIS
Cr1t played Vengeful Spirit in both games of the series. His presence helped secure early game lanes for EG. But in the mid and late game was where Cr1t truly shined. His defensive Nether Swaps on his cores allowed EG to swing fights in a big way as Secret were left bamboozled with his clutch plays.

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.
