Evil Geniuses CEO Nicole LaPointe Jameson stated that the organization will move to South American Dota 2 scene. It was done during the announcement of disbanding the roster with Artour "Arteezy" Babaev and Kanishka "BuLba" Sosale.
Don't fret, we are not leaving Dota, as we love the title, love the space, and continue to love the community, I think it's undeniable to see in our quest to continuously lift trophies and develop excellent talent, the opportunity and the grittiness of South American Dota scene is unparalleled. And it's something we at Evil Geniuses are excited to enter into going forward, and building an incredible super team that reflects a lot of the competitive successes and movements in talent development that you see across our other titles. <...> And for the new fans, and especially the amazing South American Dota community, you are incredible and loud and passionate, and we are so excited to continue to excite, and inspire, and engage with you all going forward.
She said that fans can expect news on the next Dota 2 roster "soon". This fits the rumors of Evil Geniuses building a roster of three players from Thunder Awaken and two from beastcoast. All involved players already left their teams.
Evil Geniuses chose a good time to join SA scene, as it seems that Valve started paying more attention to the region in their main games. CS:GO Major just ended in Rio, and there are rumors of Luma, Peru, holding a Dota 2 Major in the season of 2023.
