After reporting the rumours of Team EG's CS team disbanding yesterday, the organization has today officially shut down its Counter-Strike division.
EG's support for its Counter-Strike division has been in question ever since the Summer which saw Tyler "Storm" Wood and Danny "fRoD" Montaner get replaced on the lineup. The team was absent from all major tournaments of 2011 since the IEM5 World Championship.
Alex Garfield, the CEO of Evil Geniuses stated that the organization will look into returning to the CS franchise if CS:GO is to become big as they have supported the game for over seven years.
According to myEG.net, Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert will stay within the organization as "an individual FPS gaming evangelist" and will produce content for the team's future website, ending all rumours of him possibly joining another North American team, at least for now.
Evil Geniuses was:
Derek "dboorN" Boorn
Andwer "Irukandji" Timmerman
Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert
Thomas "thoMz" Garcia
Although there has been no official word from ESL just yet, this should also guarantee Natus Vincere a spot at IEM6 Global Challenge Kiev in just under two weeks.
