As it was revealed by ImAPet, Brehze encountered visa issues which prevented his entry into Russia. According to him, Vincent will quickly solve this problem, but he won’t be able to make it to Moscow before the first match for EG begins. Hence why the Americans are set to play their opening games with crush, who agreed to give them a helping hand.

The Ukrainian rifler will perform in at least one match with Evil Geniuses, which is the first series against forZe. If the American squad gets a victory, crush will help them in the winners’ match, too. There, they will be up against the winner of the mousesports vs Virtus.pro match-up. Brehze will be back in action on Thursday, December 19.

The Evil Geniuses lineup for Day Two at EPICENTER 2019:

  • Peter stanislaw Jarguz
  • Tarik tarik Celik
  • Ethan Ethan Arnold
  • Tsvetelin CeRq Dimitrov
  • Igor crush Shevchenko (standin)

As of now, crush is officially a member of the HellRaisers lineup, but as it was said by Alexey OverDrive Birukov, the Ukrainian might be on his way out from the squad. Shevchenko joined HR on September 20, and since then he has averaged a 0.90 rating, which is the worst KDR within the team. Before that, during his career, Igor had represented such organizations as Vega Squadron and pro100.
