Evil Geniuses found back to old form after weak first appearances in Europe at the BLAST Premier Group Stage. With wins against Vitality and G2, the team more than surprisingly secured a place in the final and the associated qualification for the BLAST Spring Finals.

On the third match day, one of the two teams will be eliminated from the IEM Katowice.

The team will have to duel against numerous other teams, including Vitality and Astralis in a showdown for the remaining two spots.

Against Spirit the team lost with 1:2 and despite the good performance of the Russians this defeat is another setback for G2. From round two on, the team had to play in the lower bracket for elimination. In the duel with BIG, however, G2 showed a good performance and won with 2:0 on two exciting maps. An important achievement for the European mixed team.
