Evil Geniuses Supposedly Interested in TL Jensen

by in League of Legends | Nov, 8th 2021

Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen, one of the best Western mid laners of all time and former Cloud9 and Team Liquid alumnus, reportedly signs for Evil Geniuses, as per Travis Gafford. It’s still far from a done deal. Things could change over the next few days, but it is a pairing that makes a lot of sense — especially considering the way things have shaken out with his former team

Evil Geniuses have quickly risen to prominence and, with a line-up worthy of respect and admiration, are currently a bona fide threat. They’re far from perfect, of course, but they’re not to be trifled with and a single roster change (or, at best, two) could solidify their spot at the very top of the standings. Daniele “Jiizuke” di Mauro had a phenomenal showing, but he’s still a bit too volatile with spectacular highs and downright dreadful lows. And, frankly, such inconsistencies mustn’t exist to stand a chance of mounting the LCS throne.

Their decision to rotate Dennis “Svenskeren” Johnsen and Juan “Contractz” Garcia didn’t help much. The former was about as inconsistent as the “Italian stallion.” In contrast, the latter didn’t even get enough stage time to truly acclimate and develop synergy with the rest of the team — although his spectacular Diana games didn’t leave anyone indifferent.

Signing Jensen obviously won’t make a world of difference, but how often do you get the chance to pick up such a legendary mid laner? How often does one such individual become a free agent? Any organization that’s serious about winning has to capitalize whenever such an opening arises.

And, well, Jensen isn’t the only rumored addition to Evil Geniuses — a superb Polish jungler might be joining their ranks as well!

From Rogue to NA

Kacper “Inspired” Słoma, the 2021 LEC Summer Split MVP, will reportedly be moving across the Atlantic. Where he’ll land remains to be seen, but if the rumor mill is to be believed, he’ll be donning an Evil Geniuses jersey in just a couple of months. This is far from confirmed, but as the old saying goes: where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

A trio of Jeong “Impact” Eon-young, Inspired, and Jensen would be not only incredibly capable but also fairly passive. These individuals like to take it slow, to build their leads and scale into the mid and later stages of the game. They won’t be styling over their opposition all too often, even though they have the mechanical prowess for the job. 

In any case, it’ll be interesting to see whether Evil Geniuses will be able to bring over two such talented individuals, both of whom would no doubt bolster its chances of challenging for the LCS throne come 2022.
