Evil Geniuses win GameGune Mexico

Evil Geniuses claimed winning honours in Mexico City following a 2-1 win over WeMade FOX in the Grand Final.

After coming from the Upper Bracket, Evil Geniuses needed to win just one best-of-three set, while the South Koreans were obliged to win a total of four maps to lift the trophy.

WeMade FOX confirmed why de_train is definitely not their map, as their sloppy defence managed to get just three rounds. In the second period, the South Koreans posed more of a threat, but EG took the four rounds they needed to win the map 16-10.

On de_inferno, the former e-STRO team proved a strong figure as CT, with Keun-Chul "solo" Kang putting an AWP to good use, as they strolled to a 10-5 score at half time. After the break, though, EG were better and it would be only in the very last round that WeMade FOX would secure a win after several close rounds.

The match then went to de_nuke, where EG had come out on top 16-5 the day before. However, this time it would be a much closer fight. After winning the first half 9-6 while on attack, the second half was full of emotions but in the end the American-based team came out on top with a score of 16-13.

2009-09-13 13:55
Yeah, sure... maybe they are in top5 ? Man, we saw what happened in the KODE5 Finals (in Germany if I am not mistaking), they couldn't even beat 1 team. If you want it like this, then VL (a greek team) who won against mTw.dk (same lineup as now) is better than mibr, sk, fnatic, etc., because mTw has beaten all these teams in 2008. But it isn't like that. In one sentence, a victory against a good team does in no way mean a higher rank in CS history.

Everyone would put WMF in top 10 but not EG. That's a shame since EG beat WMF 4-1 on maps overall in this tournament. Pretty much raped WMF --- so EG DEFINITELY top 10

I'm not so sure. I really think EG is at least top 5... if they can take down WeMade FOX they can surely have a good shot at taking down SK.

how can u say they are not Top5, they havent played vs Top5 for a long time now, so we'll have to wait for WCG to make conclusions

As much as I like EG, saying them top 5 at the moment is retarded. Not until they beat some of the big names of EU.
2009-09-13 11:22
top5? Now that was exaggerating..
2009-09-13 14:17
WMF lost to no name team in WCG Korea so they aren't in good form now.
2009-09-13 09:39
i think it just shows WMF are not constant enough to be in the top 10. There is a great difference between WFM's lvl when they play in korea with their public cherring for them, and outside of korea. EG still have to prove what they are worth against the euro teams

Good for EG. :) The 3 A's are getting back to where they belonged. lurppis is a good caller. It will be interesting to see how will they fare against the European big guns in the next tournament. Surely cArn, ave, kapio, and taz are aware of WMF's defeat to EG by now. EG destroyed WMF this time, but expect WMF to do their homework next time when they meet each other again. =P
2009-09-13 07:39
Congrats EG, I would love to see an American team traveling more and taking parts in European tournaments and such... hope they continue their good results. Plus they have the financial support compared to other americans, along with coL maybe.
