Evil Geniuses is the latest team to announce their five-man Call of Duty pro roster for the upcoming Black Ops 4 season.
The new-look EG roster consists of Renato ‘Saints’ Forza, Andres ‘Lacefield’ Lacefield, Mathew ‘Royalty’ Faithfull, Jevon ‘Goonjar’ Gooljar-Lim, and Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson.
This new roster takes place of the one that made a shocking run to glory at the 2018 CWL Championship, after which they collectively left the org to join Team EnVy.
The roster news was first announced through a video Evil Geniuses’ official Twitter page, in which the team proclaimed “WE ARE BACK.”

Saints comes to the team after having last been seen with Echo Fox, where the team finished 17-24 at CWL Champs after an up-and-down season.
Lacefield, Royalty, and Goonjar join EG from Ghost Gaming and Lightning Pandas respectively, two teams that did not qualify for the Pro League during WWII but managed to get into CWL Champs, where they both finished an impressive 9-12th.
FeLo had a strong run with eUnited after joining them in the second half of the WWII season. However, in order to make room for their two new aquisitions, eUnited decided to part ways with FeLo, opening the door for his move to EG.
Unfortunately for EG, their new roster does not have three players who competed together during Stage 2 of the previous season’s Pro League.
This means that they will be not have an automatic qualification bid for pool play at CWL Vegas, although their collective Pro Points might see them in anyway.
