Which is good timing too, as the Evil Geniuses
Dota 2 team has once again qualified for The International 2019
tournament. Where in the past five outings the team has managed to secure a top five finish. This new strategic partnership with Razer
means the team will utilise Razer’s esports-grade peripherals (headsets, mice, keyboards) for training and tournament use.
“The partnership with Team Razer adds incredible value,” added Phillip Aram, COO of Evil Geniuses, “Razer’s high-performance gaming devices are top-tier and give our players a new performance edge. Razer is the perfect brand with which to enjoy continued success and to compete for a repeat win at The International.”
As a well-known and long-running esports institution Evil Geniuses have competitors and teams across a wide range of esports titles including - Dota 2, Call of Duty, Fortnite, Rocket League, Rainbow Six: Siege, Artifact, Smash Bros. and Street Fighter V. Among the team's milestones are winning The International 2015 Dota 2 Championship as well as taking the top spot at the Call of Duty World League Championship in 2018.
“Team Razer is proud to partner with Evil Geniuses at the highest level of esports,” said David Tse, Global Director of Esports at Razer. “We are always inspired by their passion and commitment, and our partnership will be fuelled by the best of esports technology and skills.”
With this year’s The International tournament kicking off in August, no doubt Team EG will be on hand to once again make its mark.
