Ret and Brehze have reportedly left Evil Geniuses

Dot Esports provided this.

According to, two essential Evil Geniuses players, CeRq and Brehze, may depart the group in September. The contracts of both players have not been renewed, and they will shortly expire.

The pair has competed in the CS:GO division the longest. They were a part of the NRG roster before EG bought them in 2019, immediately before IEM New York.

The “blueprint” project was recently unveiled by Evil Geniuses. By acquiring the rosters of Carpe Diem and Party Astronauts, two more elite North American teams, the organization created a 15-man “flexible” CS:GO lineup. Depending on their recent performances, the organization plans to field various teams.

This year, Brehze and CeRq both put forth subpar performances. According to HLTV, the former has a 1.05 rating and 0.72 kills per round over the last three months. Furthermore, the latter hasn’t fared much better, earning a 0.99 rating, 0.64 kills per round, 30.3 percent headshots, and 67.4 percent rounds.

EG hired the illustrious trio of Stewie2K, automatic, and RUSH at the beginning of the year. However, the team’s performance in the first half of the year has been nothing short of a disaster, with the team missing out on the PGL Antwerp Major, IEM Dallas 22, and swiftly being eliminated from the BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2022 and ESL Pro League Season 15 as well.
