Here comes the pain again

It never rains, but it pours.

You might be getting bored of how [redacted in order to not be blocked by Gmail] Evil Geniuses have become, but it’s just too funny not to keep mentioning.

It’s gotten to the point where they were underdogs against a team coming from Mongolia using a stand-in - though IHC have been impressive in recent months, it’s still a stark reminder of how far EG have fallen.

With a last place finish on the line, EG went out with a whimper.

Overpass was a convincing win for our American friends, but IHC dished out a 16-6 spanking on Nuke to close out the series after taking the opening map. Brehze, the highest paid and supposed best player (though the latter hasn’t been true for some time, really), was completely invisible.

With the fewest frags and the least damage, Brehze was a total non-factor.

As if it wasn’t bad enough, one of the IHC players, Annihilation, gave it the big ‘un after beating them, proclaiming that “I’m happy, but it’s EG”. Which is objectively hilarious, and also totally disrespectful. In an extremely funny way.

Actually it might just be funny.

It’s one thing if s1mple does it. When it’s an IHC player… you’ve hit rock bottom.

Still, the only way is up. As soon as you hit the bottom of the bottle, at least. We respect Vorborg’s honesty, but maybe tweet that on the Twitter Circle instead of publicly. It’s only going to make those baying for your blood hungrier.

Not that they need any fuel. Annihilation just took the piss out of you on broadcast, for crying out loud.
