Evil Geniuses are winners of the MSI BEAT IT 2010 event in Beijing, as they defeated fnatic 2-1 in the Grand Final.
The two MSI sponsored teams started the Grand Final on de_dust2, with fnatic on the Terrorists side. Evil Geniuses were however able to secure important rounds as CT, not allowing fnatic a big lead before half-time, where the Swedes only had a three round lead with the score 9-6. As Terrorists Evil Geniuses had a good run and it at times did not seem like fnatic were fully focused. This resulted in EG locking down the map, winning 16-12.
Switching to de_nuke, EG continued where they left off, this time producing a strong CT side, leading 11-4 at half-time. Second half saw fnatic wake up to glory and catch up on the EG lead. The Americans had plenty of map-points, but did not manage to execute them, which forced the teams to overtime. The first overtime did not settle the winner, but second overtime did, as fnatic took a 4-2 win, to win 22-20 overall.
Final and deciding map de_train, EG once again got the right to start as CT and once again produced a solid half, leading fnatic 12-3 when switching sides. An important pistol round went to fnatic, followed by second round, where EG had bought rifles. It did however not take long for EG to break down the Swedish defence, securing the four rounds they needed, to win 16-7 and 2-1 overall.
