The EG saga continues

If you don’t laugh, you’ll cry.

And we most definitely choose to laugh.

Evil Geniuses are everyone’s favourite punching bag, and they don’t make it difficult either. From their self-assured back-patting of themselves when they win a game, to Ryan trying to defend them on Twitter, to them just being awful, and American, it’s very easy to dislike them.

Speaking of them being awful, they won’t even be at the RMR.

They snuck through 3-2 to the qualifier, but were then swiftly fell by the blade of malbsMd, and TeamOne. We mention malbs because he dropped 63 kills in 59 rounds, with over 100 ADR and a 1.57 rating. That’s a body.

Still, it could be worse.

They could have signed junior to be an AWPer for the team, or something. Alright fine, it’s for one of the academy teams, but it’s still not exactly a huge, exciting signing either.

Or we guess, hmm, we don’t know, a player on a different NA team whom they had tried to sign in the past could have called their management “some of the worst management I think I have ever talked to”.

That would be embarrassing.

Still, at least Pro League is going well for them. They almost won a map against Eternal Fire, and got almost double figure rounds against Cloud9. Over two maps. And the pipeline is working too, with wiz and HexT combining for 26 kills in the series. With 35 deaths each.

And by almost won a map vs Eternal Fire, we mean they were 13-2 down and lost 16-14, which is somehow even funnier than just losing 16-2.

Whatever the Blueprint is supposed to be building, it isn’t. Whether the drawing is skewiff or the builders are drunk, it’s less Empire State Building and more London Bridge.
