EG and OG open Group A Play for BLAST Fall
In one of the first showings in quite some time between a North American and a European squad, Evil Geniuses take on OG for Group A play at the BLAST Premier: Fall 2020 Regular Season.
Evil Geniuses have been dominant over in North America, performing at the top of the online era for the region alongside FURIA and 100 Thieves who surged before their dismantling.
EG continue to have a predictable play pattern, with the stars of the squad being CeRq and Brehze with the other members in tarik, stanislaw, and Ethan all rotating from map to map on who the third star of this squad is.
The consistency of this squad has been strong, but this is a chance to prove they can compete on a world level against international competition during this prolonged online era.
On the side of OG they are coming off a decent showing at the DreamHack Open Fall 2020 in which they finished in seventh place by taking down Sprout 2-0. Falling to NIP initially looked like a poor result, but the Ninjas picked up an impressive fourth place finish, so perhaps OG caught them at the wrong time.
OG are similar to EG in the way that they have a strong squad from top to bottom, but OG has typically lacked the star power that EG has shown.
However, there remains the likes of valde and Aleksib who have shown to be capable star players in the past, with valde continuing to be one of the most underrated players in the game.
