Report: zorte transfer to Evil Geniuses falls through; EliGE transfer is up in the air
Evil Geniuses failed to agree on the transfer of FORZE's sniper Aleksandr "zorte" Zagodyrenko, as Dust2.us has discovered. The journalists also found out that Evil Geniuses' talks on the transfer of Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski are in danger of collapsing.
Earlier, the media published information that Evil Geniuses reached a verbal agreement with zorte, but the purchase of FORZE's player fell through at the last moment due to unknown circumstances.
EliGE has been one of EG's top transfer targets this off-season and, according to rumors, have turned down Complexity's offer to join Evil Geniuses. As it turned out, negotiations with Liquid on the transfer of the American have stalled, which re-opened the opportunity for Complexity, which are still determined to acquire Jablonowski.
Earlier there were rumors that besides zorte and EliGE, Evil Geniuses are interested in signing Audric "JACKZ" Jug and Denis "electroNic" Sharipov, while also intend to return Damien "maLeK" Marcel to the role of coach. Evil Geniuses, responding to an inquiry from Dust2.us, clarified that the formation of the lineup for the new season continues, but a lot is still up in the air.
The nearest Evil Geniuses' matches will play out at BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2023, which will take place from July 13-23. At the same time, already today, June 22, the team needs to file in an application. Otherwise, the North Americans, like other participants which have not yet decided on the roster, will receive the worst possible seed as punishment.
