We already knew that Echo Fox were selling their League of Legends Championship Series spot, following a Riot Games ruling, but no one could actually predict which organization was going to be selected by Riot Games to join the league.
Overnight, we learned that Evil Geniuses are to take that spot, which means they return after a four-year hiatus.
The least we can say is that Evil Geniuses' journey into competitive League of Legends was full of setbacks. One year after purchasing CLG.EU in 2013, the team moved over to the NA LCS. They struggled in California, and were unable to really perform — finishing seventh in both splits in 2014 and suffering relegation each time.
Although they managed to return to the NA LCS at the first attempt both times, they were forced to rebrand into Winterfox for the 2015 season due to sponsorship rule changes. That was the last we saw of EG in League of Legends, but now they are back!
With Clutch Gaming becoming Dignitas and OpTic becoming Immortals for 2020, there's a wind of change currently blowing through the LCS.
Do you think Evil Genius will perform better in NA than it did in EU?
