They rose to the top through their first ever Dota 2 The International 5 win in 2015.
They were underdogs heading into the event as they had lost their star boys Artour “ ” Babaev and Ludwig “ ” Wåhlberg to Team Secret in the roster shuffle.
The odds were completely stacked against them but they pulled through.
EG confidently sailed through the Group Stages to make the main event.

What Happened to Evil Geniuses Afterward?
After the Dota 2 The International 5 win, Evil Geniuses brought back a few known names.
However, that was not enough as the organization in its entirety was unstable.
Every performance from then on out was mediocre with a few gems in between and some qualifications to top tournaments here and there.

However, that would not spell the end for EG as they held onto their hopes.

They are a franchised Tier 1 team and they do not have a single player in their roster besides world champion Alexander “jawgemo” Mor.
All of the other champions left for better financially stable Americas teams like NRG, Leviatan, and 100T respectively.
Evil Geniuses’ financial situation was bad even though their roster won the 2023 VCT Champions.
So much so that their Valorant roster was trapped in contract jail for these past few months.
Jawgemo is the only known member to be on the roster for EG Valorant as of now.
Because they won VCT Champions, it would be a while before they exit the stage of Valorant altogether.
As long as the title is netting their profits, there should be no reason to exit the scene.
However, if they do go away from Valorant as well, it would mark the end of Evil Geniuses, one of the pioneers of Esports teams all over the world.
