The North American Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) scene is not having a good time in the competitive arena. In order to change the situation, Evil Geniuses announced this Thursday that it has signed the line-up of Party Astronauts and Carpe Diem and formed a super team of 15 players. The American team that performed better at the PGL Major Antwerp was Liquid, who managed to advance to the Legends at the last opportunity, but lost all three games and placed 15th-16th (out of 24 participating teams).
CEO believes on NA scene comeback
“We know the power that North America has to offer to the CS:GO community and the Blueprint is the first step to correct the past and show that North America can once again be the home of the best teams in the world” – CEO Nicole LaPointe Jameson.
Blueprint is how the 15-player project was named. The idea is to put the players with the best performance in the main events. The organization has not yet given details on how the entire operation will be, but the team has William “RUSH” Wierzba, Timothy “autimatic” Ta, Jake “Stewie2K” Yip, Vincent “Brehze” Cayonte, Tsvetelin “CeRg” Dimitrov, Colby “Walco” Walsh, Jerric “wiz” Jiang, Jadan “HexT” Postma, Connor “chop” Sullivan, Anthony “CLASIA” Kearney, Jonathan “djay” Dallal, Jonathan “Jonji” Carey, Ben “ben1337” Smith, Josh “PwnAlone” Pigue and Wesley “viz” Harris.
RUSH, autimatic and Stewie2K are major champions as they won ELEAGUE Major Boston 2018 while playing for Cloud9.
Currently, Evil Geniuses is ranked 39th in the HLTV world rankings.
