EG locked in talks with zews - Report

Evil Geniuses are in advanced talks with Wilton "zews" Prado with a view to installing him as their new head coach, according to information first reported by DBLTAP and confirmed by HLTV.org.

The North American giants have made the Brazilian their number-one target to replace Chet "Chet" Singh, who was released last weekend following the breakdown of his relationship with Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz and Tarik "tarik" Celik.

HLTV.org knows that zews has already come to an agreement with Evil Geniuses, with only a few details left to be ironed out before he can be formally announced.

zews looks poised to join EG as their new coach

This will be zews' second stint with a North American squad after previously guiding Liquid between November 2016 and December 2018. He took the squad to new heights in his final year, in which Liquid became a regular in the top five in the world rankings, won two trophies (cs_summit 2 and SuperNova CS:GO Malta) and competed in several Big Event title deciders.

He joined MIBR together with Epitacio "TACO" de Melo in a deal that saw Jake "Stewie2K" Yip move in the opposite direction but did not enjoy the same success that he had during his first stint with the team, under Luminosity and SK. He parted ways with the team last month, stating that the solutions to the problems that the squad is facing require "a bigger change to the roster and/or to its culture".

How dumb can you be to be excited to have a first comment on hltv. I weep for you, seriously. Get out and enjoy the world, PLEASE for the love of god.
2020-04-10 08:15
0/8 bad bait
2020-04-10 09:49
Lol if you think it’s bait I suggest you take the advice as well. Being the first person to comment on an hltv article is nothing special and if you think it is you need help
2020-04-10 09:51
ok trump
2020-04-10 14:02
Sure I’d love it if I was trump, who wouldn’t so that’s a pretty dumb comment just like the one you made about being the first comment. Sad world we live in
2020-04-10 18:55
Imagine being dumb and blind at the same time. Typical Murican education LOL. Smoke less weed man maybe you will wake the fuck up
2020-04-10 21:31
Coming from someone who won’t even claim their country becuase they are ashamed. Take a look in the mirror bro. I’d rather be American than what ever the hell you are lol. If I was blind I wouldn’t be typing or reading your messages would I? Lol who’s really the dumb one? Just don’t forget to try really hard on the next hltv comment. Maybe your life can become complete and get #1 on two different comments. lol my god you need a life
2020-04-11 08:40
says the one that replies to every comment to him LUL. You sure I made any comment abt being #1? Wake the fuck up ameritard and "Go out and get a life". Fking cringe. I do hope you heed your advice and let natural selection take its course
2020-04-11 09:17
Hahahaha tell you what. I’ll die, but you will be first this much I can promise you. My life is great honestly, can you say the same about yours? :)

2020-04-10 16:42
Lol “being Indian”
2020-04-10 18:55
i dont think hltv is a site to talk about nations but since youre too xenophobic m.economictimes.com/news/international/w.. “Since the US is one of the nations most affected by COVID-19 virus, it would certainly fall in the category of nations badly affected by the pandemic that India seeks to help out by supplying HCQ. But we will have to wait for our orders,” the official said. LOL
2020-04-10 23:23
Seeing as we have tested more people than any other country it wouldn’t be hard to get the most actual cases and numbers. And what could India help with? Let’s be real.

2020-04-09 20:55
because it's a recurring pattern: tarik joins a daps team daps gets benched for snakislaw team wins a couple of events using daps' tactics and snakislaw's fragging team goes to shit and snakislaw cannot improve team atmosphere goes to shit because snakes kicks happen

2020-04-09 23:12
+69 shitislaw has one good result doesn’t know where to go afterwards and the team becomes mediocre after words it’s consistent with every team he’s played with
2020-04-10 15:10

Maybe Stan grew up as a player, if he doesn't I doubt that Zews would accept. When he joined Liquid the team improved and turned a solid base for the actual lineup

Perhaps stanislaw wanted to incorperate a new system in liquid, something zews and the rest of the team didn't want. Maybe zews will just support stanislaw's philisophy to the game now. Sad that zews is going to EG, though. I wouldve loved to see him go back to liquid.

so he left MIBR because players had to much power, and then joined EG just after the last coach left for the same reason, ok.

this won't end well, Stanislaw doesn't like Zews.

It's a great move and EG is out Liquiding Liquid at the moment. But I think this move needs to come with Tarik or Stan going. They are clearly poison together. Maybe one works. Maybe they both don't. But they have a great great core. If you could instill some leadership and decent support this team could rocket back up the rankings. I mean the potential is so high it's always a shock to me when they actually do lose. Good for them though. It's the right direction.

All teams always circling around in the same area.

Remember when MIBR was Ranked #3 in the world, and then kicked YNK as coach for Zews? looks like karma has caught up with this bunch of assholes.

they weren't going to remain at #3 anyways, they were already falling
2020-04-10 04:27
I wonder if Stanislaw and Zews talked it out before this. Last time they were on a team was liquid, and Stanislaw didn't hide his feelings towards Zews
2020-04-10 01:41
He's going to get in a fight with Stanislaw and Tarik, there's gonna be a roster change 3 months after this guaranteed.

I think it’s a good coach. But im curious what will occur between stanislaw and zews. Hope they can work something out otherwise this won’t last.
