23-year-old American Jake "Stewie2K" Yip is set to continue his career in Evil Geniuses, Rush B Media reports. According to the source, negotiations on the transfer of the player are close to a successful conclusion.

Subsequently, former coach of G2 Damien "⁠maLeK⁠" Marcel replaced Damian "daps" Steele, who held the same position in EG.

Timothy "autimatic" Ta, who has recently returned from Valorant, Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså from OG are expected to complete Evil Geniuses' starting five for 2022. According to the previously published reports, the signing of the American is to be announced in the near future, while negotiations on the transfer of the Dane are still ongoing.
