On Tuesday, Evil Geniuses announced the newest addition to their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive lineup in Jacky “Stewie2K” Yip.
As one of North America’s most successful CS:GO players, Stewie2k was on the Cloud9 team that won the ELEAGUE Major: Boston 2018 against Faze Clan, bringing North America its first major title. He was also part of the Team Liquid squad that won the Intel Grand Slam in 2019, which is awarded to the team that wins four S-Tier events organized by ESL or DreamHack Masters during a window of 10 consecutive events. He is the only North American player with both an Intel Grand Slam and a major.

Stewie2k joins Evil Geniuses CS:GO
The full Evil Geniuses CS:GO roster is rumored to include two more members from the major winning Cloud9 team in 2018, according to a tweet by Evil Geniuses CEO, Nicole LaPointe Jameson. According to a report by 1pv.fr, Timothy “autimatic” Ta will be making the move back to CS:GO after his stint with the T1 VALORANT team. This runs parallel with LaPointe Jameson’s comment, “I know you all want roster moves to come Autimatically.” Another of her comments on said tweet, “News is coming, no need to Rush,” also implies that William “RUSH” Wierzba will be joining the new Evil Geniuses roster as well. Vincent “Brehze” Cayonte and Tsvetelin “CeRq” Dimitrov will round out the final two spots as they were already on the team.
In the announcement video, the entry fragger talks about how excited he is to join the new roster. He is already with the rest of the team on their European Bootcamp. “We can’t wait to show what we can do and reveal our true potential,” Stewie2k said in the video.
All that is left now is to wait for the rest of the roster to be revealed. Will the new Evil Geniuses roster be the new hope of North America? Fans can only wait and see.
