Official: zews joins Evil Geniuses as head coach

Evil Geniuses have announced the addition of Wilton "zews" Prado as their new head coach.

The 32-year-old veteran joins the EG roster after parting ways with MIBR at the end of March, replacing Chet "Chet" Singh, who was released from the roster following a breakdown in his relationship with Tarik "tarik" Celik and Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz.

The move marks zews' second stint with a North American roster, with the Brazilian coach having previously helped Liquid achieve new heights during a two-year-long tenure with the organization, from November 2016 to December 2018.

EG will look to improve upon recent results with the addition of zews

Notably, the addition of zews also reunites the player with stanislaw, whom he previously coached on Liquid during his first year with the team. After finding himself benched from the roster following a string of poor results, stanislaw took to Twitter to reveal that he and the coach did not always see eye to eye, adding: "At the end of the day we are just fundamentally two different types of leaders."

With almost three years having passed, the EG captain and Brazilian coach will give the partnership another try, with Evil Geniuses next set to take on FURIA in the lower bracket finals of ESL Pro League Season 11 on Saturday.

Evil Geniuses now have:

Canada Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz
United States Tarik "tarik" Celik
United States Vincent "Brehze" Cayonte
United States Ethan "Ethan" Arnold
Bulgaria Tsvetelin "CeRq" Dimitrov

Brazil Wilton "zews" Prado (coach)

roster is fine, except for maybe kng tbh. but they have serious strat issues. I watch a fair bit of mibr and player skill isnt the issue, its the role distribution and strats needing work. Dream team: 1. Fallen (IGL/AWP) 2. Fer (Entry/Lurk) 3. Meyern (Clutch/Lurk/Playmaker) 4. TACO (Support, secondary entry) 5. Perfecto type player. No need for anyone amazing, just a guy who can be a team player and hit necessary shots. KNG is meant to be a primary awper and doesnt fit well with Fallen.

I mean.... i like kng. but realistically, we all know fallen will never get cut. So one has to go. Fallen is still decent igl, not his fault they dont listen sometimes.
2020-04-11 01:51
Bro kngv is inconsistent yeah but taco is way worse than him ,but just cause he has history with the team it doesn't mean taco shouldn't be kick Ik you didn't say that but some brazlians love taco as he has been playing for so long so they don't want him kicked
2020-04-11 15:04
Taco é entry e muitas partidas defende um bomb praticamento sozinho, mesmo com tudo isso ainda temos jogos que ele carrega o time. KNGv é um ótimo jogador, mas infelizmente em alguns momentos ele falha terrivelmente.

2020-04-11 03:26
At some point he even said he would learn if necessary. But I don't think Fallen want someone right now, if even his buddy zews didn't work, there is no one else to talk some sense to two faced Toledo.

In terms of calculating rankings, it counts. Otherwise, if we are going to talk about SK/LG (old mibr) winning Columbus 2016 and Cologne 2016. Of course, it doesn't count anymore to today's rankings nor it's barely relevant now. Nice argument tho.

to be honest they had to try something new. If this doesnt work Stan has to go, all of his teams start well for a few month and then teams start to read what hes doing and they go to dogshit
2020-04-11 15:55
-Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz -Tarik "tarik" Celik safe move!

He's had so much "success" in MiBR I wonder why would anyone consider him as a coach.
2020-04-11 17:16
Tarik must go. Creates problems while he brings nothing to the table in terms of fragging. EG doesn't need him at all.

Kick tarik and Stan ffs. This team and management is worthless.
2020-04-11 18:47
Still i don't think they will keep up in TOP 10 without changing tarik.

replacing Chet "ImAPet" Singh, who was released from the roster following a breakdown in his relationship with Tarik "tarik" Celik and Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz. This is the most retarded reason to remove someone from your org .. if you are coach you can't be good friend with people who you are coaching... jesus fucking christ :D
