Based in San Francisco, California, Evil Geniuses (EG) is one of the oldest eSports organizations in the world, having been founded by Alexander Garfield in 1999. Then, it was a Canadian Counter-Strike team. It would also become highly regarded as having one of the greatest Quake clans in the final years of the 90s.

EG obtained a Dota team in 2008 and started competing in StarCraft: Brood War competitions in 2009. In 2010, it would expand to form a StarCraft II division, and even enter the fighting game scene with the addition of Justin Wong, Ricki Ortiz, and others in its roster.

Now, EG is among the biggest eSports organizations in North America, and has the best Dota 2 team in the Americas.

EG has been keeping its teams busy, competing in over 470 events, spread across a variety of games ranging from Halo to Warcraft III. All the effort hasn’t gone to waste.
