Evil Geniuses in talks with RUSH as valde negotiations break down - Report

The Dane is expected to stay in OG after prolonged talks to join EG have cooled.

Evil Geniuses are in advanced talks to sign former OpTic, Cloud9 and Complexity rifler William "⁠RUSH⁠" Wierzba as negotiations for the transfer of Valdemar "⁠valde⁠" Bjørn Vangså to the North American organization have not been productive, according to reports by 1pv.fr and Rush B Media.

EG target valde - Report

valde had been linked with a move to the squad coached by Damien "⁠maLeK⁠" Marcel in late 2021 when reports came out that he and the organization were in talks over a possible transfer, but negotiations for the Danish star have since stalled.

RUSH could reunite with former Cloud9 teammates in Evil Geniuses

If previous rumors surrounding Evil Geniuses come to fruition, RUSH would team up with two of his former Cloud9 teammates, Timothy "⁠autimatic⁠" Ta and Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip, all members of the squad that won the ELEAGUE Major in Boston, where they became the first and only North American side to win Counter-Strike's most coveted trophy to date.

Signing for Evil Geniuses would give RUSH a chance at redemption after a complicated time in Complexity, the team he played for between October 2019 and September 2021, where he averaged a career-low 0.95 rating as the international squad struggled to find consistency during turbulent times caused by roster instability.

tarik departs Evil Geniuses

Another player from the Cloud9 Major-winning roster, Tarik "⁠tarik⁠" Celik, has also made headlines due to his relationship with Evil Geniuses, although going in the other direction as his ties to the Seattle-based organization came to an end when his contract expired in January after two years.

With all three American players rumored to join the team, Evil Geniuses would be:

United States Vincent "⁠Brehze⁠" Cayonte
Bulgaria Tsvetelin "⁠CeRq⁠" Dimitrov
United States Timothy "⁠autimatic⁠" Ta
United States Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip
United States William "⁠RUSH⁠" Wierzba

France Damien "⁠maLeK⁠" Marcel (coach)

Stan igling hurt them because he just didn't give a fuck, stewie igling will hurt them just because he doesn't have a brain. Honestly if brehze and cerq don't work I just see this as being another extra salt.

Idk but if the rumors were true, brehze was kind of a cunt as well. So if he wants to go to valorant/doesn't want to play cs, kick him and get someoneyoung and motivated, and EG is all set.
2022-01-05 19:04
I see Stewie as the perfect option personally. He has the ability to be one of the best players in NA if he gets to play the roles he wants to play. Also, he's super intelligent in CSGO by claims of NAF, Fallen, and Flom

Lol joining EG from OG would be considered same as joining Liverpool from ManU, you just don't do things like that. Valde would have forever be hated by millions of OG fans if he'd betrayed organisation like that

I agree about been selfless, but at the same time, rush need to think more about him. He needs to be less selfless (its pretty rare for a na player). It's like sanji, they become the scapegoat if the team is losing, the first one to drop. When you are losing constantly your duel, you can lose easily your confidence. Farm some eco kills rush, ask for flash, man. Stop been the baiter for everyone.

Watch jks interview with thorin. He had all his roles after the first month or 2 of complexity. Just the mental side and team atmosphere and constant stand ins fucked up his game according to him.

They would need an org unless Complexity / Extremum let them play while still contracted I think chances are Extremum will keep AZR, Jkaem, BnTeT and pickup JKS + an AWPer Literally 0 rumors about Extremum or any AZR/Jkaem/BnTeT/JKS in this offseason, Extremum wants to stay in CS

Shouldn't be judged too heavily considering the longer period they were a top 5-10 team as Renegades / 100T (with JKS obviously) Not to mention Jkaem had a 1.13 rating on Extremum, BnTeT also had a 1.10 rating, Liazz and Gratisfaction were the issues

With all respect to RUSH, I think he is way past his prime and isn't a good signing for EG. I think he is worse option than valde, and although it would be cool to see C9 core back in action, I doubt they would find much success. But GL ofc. I wish you all the best.

Rush is a safe choice. There's so many "if" in that team. They dont know if autimatic will be good, they dont know if breeze and cerq are still motivated, they dont know how stewies call will affect them, the only thing they know is that no matter what happens, rush will be doing the dirty work without complaining and do it well. He might not be as good as he was, but he's very consistent. It will give them time to figure out whats missing.

I agree that he will do the dirty work well but I don't think that he can play in a TOP 5 team tbh., if their goals are as high as they should be, I don't know if RUSH can compete as support with players like Perfecto/interz or even VINI and all that. I don't like this signing, I can see why they are going for it, but I just don't like it.
2022-01-05 21:02
I agree, Rush can do all the bitch roles, but they don't have a player like Konfig or Obo to compensate for his lack of firepower. On (old) papers, Breeze and Cerq were hard fraggers, but now, both are struggling. I prefer a player like JKS. I'm wondering where will he go ? Mouz, OG ? I hope -niko (danish niko) +JKS. Valde is such a bad lurker.
2022-01-06 03:45
Valde is too passive and really not going to help EG tbh, Rush with the original juggernaut team was pretty insane, so I have some hope for him

Cmon bro, you are not going to tell me that RUSH is a better choice over valde? valde is one of the best riflers in the world when put into right position, I think he would be a great pick for EG, he would give them more firepower, also he is a pretty good support if needed to to that role, and he can do it, RUSH is not a better choice at all imo.

I think you forgot that valde can be a great support, and at the same time frag well. He isn't baiter, he is just passive player. He also does a lot for the team when it comes to granades usage, and overall he is a very important player for OG and would give a lot to EG.

Rush is a better fit for this team than Valde was anyway. Rush is also a very hard working player willing to do anything to improve the team. This gets me excited for EG, would of like to seen Daps still involved behind the scenes as an analyst.

Agreed, I think he'll be a better fit than valde, even if valde's got better stats. he's more aggressive than valde and the fact that he's played with everybody before will probably help teamplay in their first few lans.
2022-01-05 19:29
Truth. We've also seen that teams that all share a nationality (or almost do) seem to perform better. Four Americans +CeRq is a good sign for the cultural cohesion of the team

It's cool to see Rush get another shot, and I like the C9 core re-uniting, but I still think EG should have kept oBo. I think he's strictly better than Rush, more efficient, better aim, and he's a younger talent so he's a better long term investment. Rush is good in the right system, but this team looks like it might lack firepower.

Seems like a pug team stewie would pick up to have fun. Its just a friend grp of players. Idk why EG think this will ever work. Stew - shown OK things at liquid. Fine pickup Rush - Not been good for a while. Not a good pickup Cerq - Been bad for a while now, time to get a new awp. Autimatic - Has potenial, but is unproven atm. Risky Breezhe - Shown good things before and seems to be picking up good form again. EG should try to keep him I will be very suprised if this team ever gets into top 10

Rush is meh but I think stewie's philosophy towards a roster is experienced tier 1 players are going to be infinitely easier to work then a young guy that needs to be taught protocols and a playbook. I get it but rush is capped at a certain level. Autimatic, Brehze and Cerq will all need to rewind the clock in a pretty major way for this team to become good again.

Why not JKS? Or MArKE? Or have Stew and Auti pester Tarik until he finally un-retires. I guess RUSH gives them a support player like a JACKZ-lite, but I would have guessed that was the plan for Auti. Seems like a team that will seriously lack firepower unless old C9 playing together reinvigorates them.

That is a huge amount of potential firepower lost I don't think this roster has nearly enough of it anymore
2022-01-05 23:55
Good team but not elite at all. Autimatic probably won't be a real star(especially not at the start), and both RUSH and Stewie2k are somewhat known factors. All 3 of them will be decent in their roles, but there's a ton of weight on the shoulders of CeRq and Brehze when it comes to firepower. Too much for my taste, Especially since CeRq has been underperofmring and historically has struggled with consistency. Maybe a decent gatekeeper for the top 10, but unless both autimatic and cerq go back to being absolutely nuts i dont think this team is doing much beyond that

The old lineup wih stanislaw, oBo, MICHU had a very strong firepower but didn't work out the way everyone was expecting. EG don't want to do the same mistake in this lineup. They want to add chemistry in the lineup while taking out a little bit of firepower. English is not my first language so I apologize if you don't understand me that much.
2022-01-07 04:38
RUSH is a great addition to any team tbh, but I am worried about the firepower considering auti hasn’t been playing, and also Cerq has been in a slump. I think signing RUSH will be great for Stewie, and we’ll likely see a jump in his stats. If Brehze and stew can return to form this team can be scary
2022-01-06 02:15
Best of luck for them, they are going to need it.
2022-01-06 02:26
RUSH,stewie,CERQ(underperforming last 2 years). autimatic (valorant player) and brehze gg
2022-01-06 03:27
Obo instead of Rush.
2022-01-06 03:42
60% are major winners and all, but all players have been either mediocre or not playing the game for the past year and the expectations are gonna be low no matter how you look at it. Then again, that might prove to be a good point, less expectations = less pressure. Hope they prove me wrong.

2022-01-06 05:37
Even +olofmeister would have made more sense this is literally the end of EG, Rush is not a good player and certainly not if Stewie plays for the team which himself can do RUSH's role better than him and also he can igl
