Description[edit]

Evil Geniuses (EG) is an American esports organization based in Seattle, Washington[2]. Founded in 1999, the organization has fielded players in various fighting games, Call of Duty, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, Fortnite Battle Royale, Halo, League of Legends, StarCraft II, Rocket League, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, and World of Warcraft.

In May 2019, EG was acquired by PEAK6 Investments LLC, a Chicago-based investment company. While independently owned at the time of the acquisition, it was formerly a subsidiary of GoodGame Agency, which in turn was owned by Amazon.com through its division Twitch.

EG's Dota 2 squad won The International 2015, receiving the largest prize payout in esports history at the time. Their Call of Duty: WWII roster won the 2018 Call of Duty Championship.

History[edit]

  • Philadelphia native and future CEO Alex Garfield started working for the team in 2004.

  • Evil Geniuses expanded into World of Warcraft (WoW) Arena by acquiring HukHukHukHukHuk in 2007.
