Ethan leaves Evil Geniuses, moves to VALORANT*

Evil Geniuses have announced they are parting ways with the 20-year-old, who will be pursuing a career in VALORANT.

Ethan "⁠Ethan⁠" Arnold has become the first Evil Geniuses player to part ways with the team since the North American organization acquired the squad from NRG in September of 2019, doing so to join 100 Thieves' VALORANT division.

The American rifler, who became the 20th best player of 2019 shortly after joining EG, was part of the squads that won IEM Shanghai 2018 and cs_summit 3, while under the NRG tag, and ESL One New York 2019, StarSeries i-League Season 8, BLAST Premier Spring 2020 Americas Finals, cs_summit 6 North America and ESL One Cologne 2020 North America in Evil Geniuses.

Ethan, who also made the playoffs at the StarLadder Major in Berlin, was named MVP in two of his team's aforementioned victories, on LAN at StarSeries i-League Season 8 and at ESL One Cologne 2020 North America during the online era.

Ethan has left Evil Geniuses to pursue a career in VALORANT

Ethan hit No.1 in the team ranking with Evil Geniuses twice, once in October of 2019 and once in September of 2020, albeit briefly on both occasions. After the second time, however, Evil Geniuses dipped into a slump at the turn of the year, falling to No. 18, a low for EG.

The American's departure comes after a slew of middling results on European soil for Evil Geniuses, who were recently eliminated from IEM Katowice 2021 in 9-12th place with a victory over Gambit in the first round of play followed by losses to G2 and Astralis.

Evil Geniuses hadn't been able to make much of a mark in their previous tournaments since the beginning of the year, when their sojourn in the old world began, falling out of the BLAST Premier Spring Groups in 4-6th place and finishing 5-6th at both DreamHack Open January and the BLAST Premier Global Finals.

Update: Ethan made a statement shortly after EG's announcement, saying "I will be leaving CS and officially moving over to VALORANT starting today. I've met many people through CS that I can now call friends and I'm extremely grateful for that. I've also made unforgettable memories that some people could only dream of experiencing. The one thing I ask is if you've supported me this long, you follow me into the next chapter of my career and I promise I will not let you down. I'm excited for this new challenge and I can't wait to give it my all over at 100Thieves."

Evil Geniuses are now:

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

Not many would move to the US that easily and vice versa. Obo moved to EU for few months and ran back , same can be said for S1mple. But if they need an awper that bad , they can always pay the buyout for Junior , he seems promising.

ISSAA performs well considering his issue with latency. But benching NBK who has more of a support role... I am really not convinced of this. The in-game leading of Aleksib is the problem; How many times have you seen hesitation in the gameplan when they kill 3 guys and clear an entire zone but hold the place for 30 sec. I hope to be wrong on that, let see who will replace NBK and what happens in EPL.

Thinking the same thing. Ethan was actually pretty top tier NA player. Must be that he has fell in love with Valorant. Because he still had a career in CSGO if he wanted to. Unlike most CSGO players that switched to Valorant, their careers were over and trash players.
2021-02-28 20:27
1 reply
Yeah most likely, or he doesn't wanna move to Europe and doesn't see a future for na cs. Overall only a handful of actually skilled or otherwise worthwhile players switched and most of them only recently, overall a lot of the players that went over were kinda shit or average at best. I suspect this might be a bad thing for valorant and hinder the improvement/growth of teams and maybe even the scene, at least in na, because they like to hold onto washed up or unproven players way too long instead of giving someone else a shot.

nitr0 is for sure the biggest name so far and will be even after Ethan but Ethan could be the "best" player skillwise.

The biggest name is gtr or scream and the most skilled player is prolly jampi but ethan is a close second imo or maybe third behind autimatic.

Everytime someone leaves you guys say that. But the truth is that almost every skilled NA player already left CS. Wardell, TenZ, Crashies, Leaf, Curry, nitr0, moose, autimatic, yay, s0m... and others.

Only autimatic could contend with ethan all those other players are unproven (leaf and curry) or garbage (wardell and yay)

I was about to say he really destroyed his own argument by listing of these players, most of them are either unproven, washed or straight garbage.

Yeah, unproven but left when they started to peak, they could've done well in CS, but just preferred not to.

Wardell, yay, TenZ? Peak? They are garbage from the start and kept getting fucking destroyed by EU teams couldn't even make it in NA. I can't wait for LAN to happen so fucking EU teams can shit on these NA knobheads in Valorant and people will start to see how utter fucking trash players like Wardell, Shazam and Sinatra is. One good thing i can say Ethan going Valorant for 100T is that he can shit on that shit noob OW trash Sinatra and prove to the world how shit he is compared to real FPS pros

The difference is exactly the mechanics, that's the literal point where those players were bad, but since Valorant is a much easier game to aim, the characters are bigger and slower, those "boomers", and "washed up", players that have lots of knowledge about gaming, but are lacking skillwise for CSGO wich is a much faster and harder to aim and shoot game, are perfect for Valorant. Hazed wasn't a good enough aimer in CS for example, but in Valorant he pretty much can hit his shots on a more consistant bases, wich makes his knowledge of gaming the most important thing.

Exactly, they never had the time to actually peak in CS, they chose to try it in Valorant, they like the game more. I don't know why CS nerds always hate on Valorant that much, I literally follow both games and I see a brighter and better future for Valorant.

This is something I can agree to. CSGO is full of cheaters, and Valve just doesn't care. Also new glitches coming up, like seeing objects through walls etc. Performance is total shit unless you buy a 2000€ computer for game that is older than you. There haven't happened any good update except some new maps. Nowadays can't even see opponents from background, and these things can't be adjusted to the best, even though some help is available. I've played only few games of valorant and soon decades of cs, but these are just something they need to fix in order to keep the game up
2021-03-03 14:28
Ok, that statement about sinatraa is just hate man. C'mon, the dude was the best player in the world in OW, I know it's a very different game, but the dude is as skilled as it gets in gaming, he is one of the best Valorant players in the world, and he is surely a proven esports athlete.
2021-03-02 18:01

He's the best player in the world in OW it's because its such an easy game like Valorant. Saying Sinatraa is skilled as it gets in gaming is like saying Ninja is good. He's just utter garbage compare to the likes of S1mple. You really want to be a proven esports athlete? Compare them to likes of Neo, f0rest, shox, S1mple, Zywoo, Device, Niko, Twitz, Elige, heck Shroud even. You want to set skill ceiling for FPS games compare Shroud the very least to Sinatraa. They are the best of best in true skill based FPS from movement to aim. Not some shitty easy movement, run and gun, ability based shooter that has biggest. Want to know why shitlord like Sinatraa can't make it in CS:GO? Because he fucking sucks. These turd hostlers like Shazam and Sinatraa and these Valorant "pros" better pray that players like S1mple and Zywoo never transitions to Valorant and CS still stay strong. The day they do all these turds will retire forever and come back to earth again to realize how bad they are and should have just stayed in OW where its all spamfest in there

Wtf, never read so much bullshit and hate in one comment. Maybe he never made in CS, because he never fucking tried? Maybe he doesn't like the game? Valorant is not a run and gun game wtf, the guy wins the world championships, is elected MVP and you say he is not aproven Esports athlete, because you don't like the game he played? C'mon man. I don't like OW, but that's an obvious thing to admit. Look, Valorant is slower and easier to hit shots, maybe the skill gap between ZywoO and the likes of Shazam in Valorant would be less significant, because the game is easier. Did you think about that? The same would go for someone who plays quake or something going to CS, the game is way faster and harder to hit, but maybe they don't need the difference in skill in a slower game, the game sense would be more significant.

Nitro even begged riot on his twit to fix the running and aiming in the game because its broken af. Did u see s1mple play valorant? He was beasting everything.

not to say he is versatile, good with the shitty weapons, explosive when needed, a selfless teammate who'll drop cerq an awp and get a mac10 in return 10 times a game, a really good support, experienced player who understands the macro game and i could go on. he's not that good finding frags since he transfered to mibr but he still finds impact in the games, which lots of madfraggers can't do even after 3K-ing a round. he can secondary awp too. also, reliable b anchor player, not many of those around. not saying that he's a god, but surely not a bad player to any extent. and also, content king!

I understand why players like Vanity, Leaf, Steel etc left, because no one wanted to pick them up, but, players like Ethan could easily find a team in CS. Anyways, NA CS is dying mate. You literally have 10 players in top 30, thats 10 players out of 150 players.

I disagree with you saying that NA scene is dead. I can agree it’s rocky right now but let’s be real, just because a bunch of washed NA pros leave or pug stars, shouldn’t mean that NA CS is dead. Ethan was the first who was actually a top player to leave. I also agree that pros who will just leave their teams to take the easy road to Valorant is very weak. People lack dignity nowadays. I do also agree that Valorant will be dead in a year or so, so much generated hype around the game, and it’s all gone, way overhyped for a cartoon game. It’s just Asian modded CSGO with abilities and 10x easier lol. They’ll all come back when it’s dead. And to those who say CS is dead, you’ve been saying that since 2017, got anything new to say?

It was the only decision he could make. Only 2 Tier 1 NA teams (Liquid and EG). He just bought a house in the US, so he can't commit to EU team. Valorant will continue to grow, while Valve ignores CS. Smart as fuck.

yes, dota in NA is dying as well. Valve are being useless in managing competitive scene.
2021-02-28 20:05
Yep, it's so sad that Valve ignore their amazing game. 128 tick, better anti-cheat, battle pass like they do for TI in Dota. I still think CS is the much better game because of the high skill ceiling (shooting mechanics, all the different movement skills) and the map design is sooo much better. But Valorant is still a young game, it's very possible they continue to improve it. At least Riot is working on their game. CS will die in NA and eventually only exist in EU/CIS.

This was always gonna happen. I don't blame him. Many more big players will follow and i think they should. I love CS and hate VAL but the way the community talks about NA CS is so toxic and in the end it will only hurt CS as a whole. Viewer audience from NA will bring money to VAL that could of gone to CS. Tourney prize pool will go down while VAL prize pool and wages will go up thus starting to attract overseas players to VAL.

2021-03-01 01:04
I give Valorant 2-3 years maximum unless Epic keeps dumping absurd amounts of money just to keep the competitive scene alive. Otherwise, we are probably looking at Overwatch v2.0 It's just not the type of game that is built for long-term success. And IMO they fucked up big time by establishing a monopoly on skin purchases and restricting trading. It will definitely hurt them in a long run.

The game is picking up popularity in Asia (Korea, Japan, China, India). Also, they use the same business model for LoL and it seems to be doing well. Btw it's Riot not Epic, Epic is Fortnite.

They are just pumping money into the valorant scene so it looks like the scene is relevant, kinda like dying games like blizzards overwatch NA players Are just trying to get the sweet money out of it as soon as they can, especially considering there are no relevant csgo events in NA anyway anymore, it’s just less stress for more money for the players I don’t judge them for that decision but I cannot really take these players serious anymore either (I can only understand it on players like steel or jamppi) but I expect most of them to snake their way back into the cs scene as soon as the valorant bubble pops anyway

It's great for them, sponsors will line up for Valorant because it doesn't have the scary "terrorist" word in it.

Ethan hit No.1 in the team ranking with Evil Geniuses twice, once in October of 2019 and once in September of 2020, albeit briefly on both occasions. After the second time, however, Evil Geniuses dipped into a slump at the turn of the year, falling to No. 18, a low for EG. Unlucky

2021-03-01 05:14
This is definitely the best player to cross over right? This one surprises me. My guess if EG stays in the game is Obo is joining. Or they're going to sell Brehze for big cash to a Euro team. Maybe OG. Both orgs have a relationship.
2021-03-01 05:54
I find it funny that weak/mediocre players migrate to Valorant on such a scale. Don't change the game. It won't help. Just train hard and it will pay off. You are pro after all aren't you? If your performance leaves to.desire here it will repeat there.
