Overview[edit]

Evil Geniuses made a big splash on the StarCraft scene in 2009 when they signed 5 of the best players from the USA after announcing their StarCraft division. The team itself lacked achievements, but the individual members had big success individually. Amongst other things all of the EG Starcraft members qualified for the 2009 WCG USA Finals in New York City.

The clan members gained big fame in the community through different means. Geoff iNcontroL Robinson had been a long time prominent member of Teamliquid.net and also coach StarCraft players for money. Another member, Jacob "LzGaMeR" Winstead, ran a very popular stream for a long time while Bryce "Machine" Bates may have drawn the short straw being the butt of many "Machine is bad" jokes floating around on Teamliquid.

EG Broodwar team was disbanded after the release of SC2, some players moved to EG SC2 team.

On July 20, 2019, the former team manager and captain Geoff "iNcontroL" Robinson passed away due to a sudden illness. [1]
