Evil Geniuses change duo
Evil Geniuses have announced changes to their North American team with the change of two members.
The pioneer of North American Counter-Strike, team Evil Geniuses, have not been participating in any tournaments since their first place finish in the ESEA Invite Season 8 Playoff and question marks have in recent times rose as to what is going on with the team.
Today we got the answers, as the North American-based organization announced changes to the Counter-Strike team, waving goodbye to Danny "fRoD" Montaner and Tyler "Storm" Wood. The reason behind the move was not commented on in the announcement by EG.
The duo joined EG back December 2008, after being a part of compLexity since mid-2004, including the time spent playing Counter-Strike: Source in CGS. The duo has been playing side-by-side since 2004 and will to continue to do so, following their departure from EG, as they are believed to join a new team soon.
"I just wanted to thank Evil Geniuses for all the support they gave us throughout the years. They helped us through roster changes and mixed tournament results, but always supported us through it all. We’ve decided that it would be best for the both of us to start fresh. I’m looking forward to where the coming months take Tyler and I." - Danny "fRoD" Montaner said on EG's website.
fRoD's days in EG numbered
Joining EG is Paul "pauLy" Guerboyan, who has been praised by the US community for a very long time, his arrival in EG is what the community have been waiting for. Guerboyan joins from the US SK team, which he joined last month, following the disbandment of Fear Factory.

Evil Geniuses now have the following lineup:
Andrew "Irukandji" Timmerman
Derek "dboorN" Boorn
Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert
Paul "pauLy" Guerboyan
The new Evil Geniuses squad will have their debut at 05:00 against Good Guys on de_russka in the ESEA S9 Invite Division, where they are currently with five wins and two losses, taking fourth place in the rankings.
