EG target valde - Report

The American organization looks to round out their 2022 lineup with Valdemar "⁠valde⁠" Bjørn Vangså.

According to a report from 1pv.fr, Evil Geniuses are currently in talks with OG over the signing of Danish player valde. The 26-year-old would fill out the final spot in the reported Evil Geniuses lineup, joining returning players Vincent "⁠Brehze⁠" Cayonte and Tsvetelin "⁠CeRq⁠" Dimitrov along with former Cloud9 duo Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip and Timothy "⁠autimatic⁠" Ta.

valde has played with OG since the team's formation in late 2019 and is reported to have a year left on his contract. With reports that Aleksi "⁠Aleksib⁠" Virolainen is in talks with G2, a big change might be in the works for the OG camp.

valde could travel to North America to further his career

1pv.fr also added that the negotiations reported previously between Evil Geniuses and Stewie2K and autimatic are going well, and it seems likely they will join the organization.

Here is the reported Evil Geniuses lineup:

United States Vincent "⁠Brehze⁠" Cayonte
Bulgaria Tsvetelin "⁠CeRq⁠" Dimitrov
United States Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip
United States Timothy "⁠autimatic⁠" Ta
Denmark Valdemar "⁠valde⁠" Bjørn Vangså

France Damien "⁠maLeK⁠" Marcel (coach)

At what, missing shots? He had decent run with Ence, where they manage to be the over performing underdog for some months. I think a lot of the success can be attributed to no one ever taking Ence seriously and preparing properly. Now in an objectivity better team, he hasn’t done anything. He is a one hit wonder so far.

I was there. Still never felt like anyone REALLY gave them credit and they never really lost the underdog status. But I understand that with your flair he is the best IGL of all time with s1mple lvl game play. I just can’t see what he brings that nexa can’t. Not like he has done anything with OG, a team objectively better than the Ence one.

Literally every IGL in the game except Tabsen has a bad rating. You can't igl, play support and frag. It doesn't work like that Jackz is the one who really underperfomed. Barely scraping any kills by. Hunter also didn't play as good this year as he did in 2020 and especially not like in 2019

Nah, they have mantuu and flamez, and plenty of available players to work with. The only issue would be an IGL, as AZR, MSL or even sunny have been away from tier1 for so long that it'd be a risk to sign them full stop. Bntet or styko would be a solid replacement for valde, and then they just need another solid rifler to pair with flamez. To re-iterate: mantuu flamez bntet/styko azr/sunny mir/lollipop21k(?) But those are just some random ideas off the top of my head. Far crazier things have happened lol

first of all, mantuu has been consistently the highest rated player on OG (so no valde isnt the only reason) source: hltv.org/stats/players/compare/9031/vald.. second of all, valde and flamez have been very close to eachother in ratings, except the mid-point of the year when valde was consistently 0.1 rating higher than flamez. (and after dec 10th when flamez tanked a little bit) so yeagh in conclusion, valde isnt the only piece holding OG together, flamez isnt that bad except 2 points through this year, and actually I would argue mantuu performance-wise is the best player on the team I would say that with all of these pieces having "average performance", aleksib would actually be a more important factor of actually getting wins with this performance.
2021-12-31 16:38
3 replies
the fact that their awper was barely higher rated than the rifler says it all really and if you look once more at your own link you can actually see that valde has higher impact than mantuu which is also the case in 2020. You realise 1.11 and 1.13 rated players are the exact opposite of average performers right? you realise how the rating system works right? But i guess everything checks out lmfao

Yeah I thought about that too, but I just feel like Stewie has a greater desire to lead a team than valde (pure speculation of course) + he's the entryfragger, the IGL/entry combo is almost a necessity these days. If all players play to the best of their abilities, then I can see this working - but winning when they're outsmarted initially, that's going to be the real challenge.

Valde likes to have his voice in a team, I am not sure how will that fit with stew and his immature ego that's 40 times the size of his forehead. I didn't see too much of Valde, something about way he communicates and language he chooses to use makes me smell that smelly smell of manipulation which I didn't like. But I hope I'm wrong.

I'd believe it tbh, I hope you're right. It could work in EG's favor to have an older player who has experience calling so Stew doesn't have to do all the pre-round and mid-round calling. I'm having a weird time imagining Stew and Valde on the same squad though. Their personalities are so vastly different.
2021-12-30 17:26

It's important to have a balence and Valde seems like a great player to keep a calm voice in the mid rounds That being said he can get pretty pumped up make no mistake and he hates to lose. I'm sure him and stewie will do fine in that extent :D

That's a good point. If they don't clash, they may be good foils to each other personalitywise. it's an interesting looking roster, curious to see how it works (if it does come to fruition like reports say)

2021-12-30 18:09
Decent support player if he choses to play that role. However I feel like this team will lack firepower. CeRq seems to be getting back in form, so that's good, but Stewie2K, valde and Brehze all looked average at best lately. And you wouldn't expect to much from autimatic after playing valorant for so long. I don't think this roster of EG will find a lot of success but it def. looks better than the previous one.

the last 6 months was pretty average for elige. So that's why I'm guessing that. Also, twistz said elige took different roles since fallen had joined the team. Sure it will affect elige performance, but in terms of mechanics, elige > stewie. Very often, it was 4 v 5 at 1:00, because stewie got killed without been traded.
2022-01-01 23:21

I mean EliGE was still the 2nd guy in after Stewie2K in previous Liquid roster, and although he hasn't had the best time of his career he was still doing great. I don't know, it's worth trying new things, Stewie2K def. was doing well as an entry and most of the time he was just losing duels, I agree EliGE should be much much better at this role.
2022-01-01 23:27

Nitro or shox as an entry would be kinda useless. It would like Krystal who was entrying fragging = basically, A suicide for the sake of the team. I hope they will figure it out. Like eg, I'm more intrigued about them than before.

There are some really experienced names in this roster so figuring out roles shouldn't be a problem really. Some changes defienietly were needed in previous Liquid roster but I don't know if making a whole overhaul and leaving only 2 players is the best thing they could've done, time will tell how will it look.

2021-12-30 19:36
I like that we have at least some surprise and not everything is leaked! I can't imagine what is EG aiming for and we still haven't heard single thing from CoL, have we? Valde is ok, but def not superstar caliber (what people hoped for few YEARS ago).

Feel sorry for Valde. Going from North to oG to this team. If Astralis wasnt managed by a braindead moron they would have replaced Xyp for him

Well if both -valde -aleksib I'll definitely have to change flair, still like flamez and mantuu but it's not the same without those players, probably also better to let flamez then go to some other T1 team that has a future. Flamez to MOUZ could be interesting with the academy players stepping up too, could potentially become a team like the next Gambit with the young guns. I mean who wouldn't like to see both frozen and flamez on the same team ;)

I'd rather focus on the MOUZ NXT players at this point, budget friendly option for the org with low-risk at this point. FlameZ (entry) torzsi (awp) Frozen (lurk) Nexa or siuhy (IGL) xertioN or JDC depending on who fits best chemistry/role-wise

2021-12-30 20:19

So many clown comments saying RUSH is better. At what, dying? CerQ is fine and having someone to secondary call for sewage makes sense.

Hopefully OG goes for nexa and styko to replace aleksi and valde, would be a fun team to watch
2021-12-31 00:37
This lineup has potential, but I'm a little worried they might have too many guys who want to stay back, lurk, and be last alive. If Autimatic reaches his old form that's going to be a great addition, but when he wasn't AWPing he was usually a lurker, Brehze is a lurker, and Valde has been playing a support/lurker for OG. The only aggressor in this lineup is Stewie, which is great as I'd imagine he'll be the IGL, but I think they should have gotten Jkaem. A guy who's played in NA before, a damn good entry-fragger, and since he's on Extremum's bench I cant imagine he costs more then Valde.

On the one hand, Cerq is pretty good at aggressive awping and in my eyes Valde and auti very versatile players who could pretty easily take more aggressive roles than what they've played in the past. On the other hand, every single player on this roster outside of maybe cerq has played a lurk-y role at some point in the past. Big potential for this team to play too passively and for positions to conflict.

I suppose Cerq could be an aggressor, it fits his style, but I don't think an AWP as entry is really ideal. On eco's and some CT rounds sure, but as a consistent gameplan I don't really know if it would be efficient. The guys you mentioned could definitely adapt, I mean they're forced too really. I don't think it could ever get as bad as Cold, Blame, and JKS on Complexity, but the teams built in a similar style which is bad.
2021-12-31 07:09
that team looks sick
2021-12-31 00:59
-cerq +mantuu
2021-12-31 02:33
someone please remove cerq , hes already wasted
2021-12-31 04:12
let's go EG!!!
2021-12-31 04:56
It is good to see valde in this team. Og was a bad team from the start. It is a odd mix with stewie. Stewie is more a feeler while valde is a brainer. It is a genius move or a dumb move. Time will tell.

Valde honestly seems like he would be fine with it tbh Stewie would be to EG what ISSAA was to OG and from the LANs before online happened Valde seemed pretty involved in the hype ISSAA put out
2022-01-02 07:56
Seems og disban their current lineup
2021-12-31 11:34

They couldve just pick koosta+bntet and Gen.G trio united to dominate NA once again
2021-12-31 14:04
One or two years of playing with EG and he will be Balde or Malde.
2021-12-31 14:27
This team is shaping up to be a contender , lineup looks impressive on paper
2021-12-31 15:28
OG : NBK bodyy hAdji afroo Djoko/Lucky lets go
2021-12-31 15:36
Looks good But valde to astralis would be better
2021-12-31 15:54
Last time Valde actually played for a solid roster was 2017 North when he replaced Magisk but they became shit in 2018 and since then he has wasted about 4 years Now he is 26 yo and joining a dead roster with washed up stewie and retired Auti Pretty much means the end of his tier 1 player career
