Evil Geniuses have officially announced their new lineup for the upcoming season. Gustav “s4” Magnusson has been released into free agency, whereas star midlaner Sumail “SumaiL” Hassan remains under contract but is open to transfer negotiations. They will be replaced by Abed Azel L. Yusop from Fnatic and Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev from Virtus.pro.
