Multiple sources told Dot Esports and journalist Max “Purest” Katz on Jan. 3 that Evil Geniuses had practiced without Daniel “roca” Gustaferri and Brandon “BRANTED” Ballard on their VALORANT roster.
EG would be down to two players as a result of the trade. Prior to the commencement of the 2022 VALORANT Champions Tour, which begins in January, the organization would need to sign three new players. According to Dot Esports, EG has begun to test fresh players.
The decisions come after EG’s recent dismal performance in a number of lesser tournaments. The squad just finished second in the VCS Midwest Showdown, which was held from December 3 to 5. For their second-place finish, EG received $1,500. In the grand final, they were defeated by free agent mix roster Frag Ya Bag.
EG, on the other hand, looked impressive throughout their run in the Nerd Street Gamers Winter Championship: Open 7 from November 29 to December 1. In the round of 16, EG defeated DarkZero, however in the quarterfinals, they were defeated by eventual tournament winners XSET.
