Quite a lot of shuffling going on now that the Spring Shuffle is coming to a close. Some teams are scrambling here and there for new squad members, while others are chucking their out. A happening shuffle season is going to end in a move back to Evil Geniuses for Aui_2000 and Bulba.
The DotA 2 scene experienced its fair share of shuffling around with a major move on the part of two well-known players. Aui_2000 and Bulba, who had been playing the season for Digital Chaos, will be returning to their old squad.
A little while back, Shannon ‘SUNSfan’ Scotten posted a Tweet that said “dead team”. We can only imagine that the move back for Aui_2000 and Bulba had come underway at that time. As a result, the Evil Geniuses roster has been hearing a lot of rumors regarding their lineup.
Now, finally, the organization has put an end to the rumors by announcing the return of two of their former players. The North American eSports organization released its official roster for the upcoming Major and the International 6.
Their lineup includes Kurtis ‘Aui_2000’ Ling, Syed Sumail ‘SumaiL’ Hassan, Kanishka Sam ‘BuLba’ Sosale, Clinton ‘Fear’ Loomis, Peter ‘ppd’ Dager.
The captain, ppd gave a proper announcement and welcomed Bulba and Aui_2000 back.
The full statement can be read on EGs website.
“First off, I’d like to thank Universe for the past two years. We started from nothing and grew into the champions we are today. For that, I am eternally grateful. Second, I’d like to apologize to the players and management who were negatively affected by this sudden change […] On a lighter note, I’d like to welcome both Aui_2000 and BuLba to Evil Geniuses. I know this is a bit shocking for most of you, but there never really was much bad blood between Aui and myself after The International 5. I am confident that with this roster we have a real shot at winning upcoming tournaments and TI6. Thank you for your continued support; it does not go unnoticed.”
The Evil Geniuses squad looks pretty strong with the former two back. The chemistry is looking great and we can’t wait to see them back in action.
