The Call of Duty World League Championship finished this past weekend. The period after the tournament is often called Rostermania. Many teams at this period decide to make changes in their teams before the start of remaining tournaments this season. Evil Geniuses is the first team that decided to make those changes in the team. It was announced today that two of their players have left the team.
Even though they were characterized as one of the possible contenders for the title at the Call of Duty World League Championship, Evil Geniuses were far from their best form. They were not able to put on a good performance in any of their matches. Having that bad results in the biggest Call of Duty tournament this year is not something that should be taken lightly. And Evil Geniuses seem to agree with that as they have announced that two of their players left the team.
Parasite and Havok are Out
Call of Duty World League Championship 2017 was the last Call of Duty tournament that featured Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. The teams have already started to prepare for the new season. It will feature a new title, Call of Duty: WWII. Evil Geniuses is one of the first teams that officially started their preparation. And the first thing they did was to release Christopher Duarte Parasite and Colt McLendon Havok from their Call of Duty roster.
Parasite made his debut in Evil Geniuses back in June. And at the very first tournament with Parasite, Evil Geniuses managed to achieve a good result. They finished in the top six at the CWL Anaheim Open. However, things started to fall apart after that tournament. It became clear that the atmosphere in the team is far from good due to the constants arguments among the players.
All that resulted in Evil Geniuses having problems with their performances. That became obvious the most at that CWL Global Pro League when this team finished in the top 12. But even worse it was at the Call of Duty World League Championship 2017 when they managed to finish only in the top 32.
Building the Team Around New Players
With Parasite and Havok leaving the team, there are only two players that remained in the team. Those two players are Anthony Wheeler NAMELESS and Jared Harrell Nagafen . This means that the team’s management is ready to build their new team around these two players that have proven their talent on numerous occasions.
Evil Geniuses will not be making a decision on who will be replacing Parasite and Havok in the upcoming period. The season is over. There is no need for teams to rush with deciding who will be joining their teams. Considering WWII release in November, it will be interesting to see who will join Evil Geniuses for the next season.
Besides that, the second part of the story is also very interesting because Parasite and Havok are at this moment free agents. There will be a lot of teams that will be interested to sign them. Because of that, the upcoming period in Call of Duty eSports competitions is going to be quite engaging.
