BTS Pro Series


Evil Geniuses have been involved in some of the most fierce competitions in Dota 2. They’ve done more than compete in them — they’ve won them. EG’s history in the esport is long and rich, and features some of the most impressive tournament runs in history. Whether exciting losers bracket runs or complete dominations in all aspects of an event, the teams have always been able to put on some exciting shows for fans. This series will take a look back and remember some of EG’s most exciting tournaments in Dota 2. This time, we will consider the team’s performance at BTS Pro Series: Americas.

Before The Event

Sometimes smaller victories can be just as gratifying as an event like The International or one of the Valve sponsored majors. With the right story and events going on, even a tournament that’s not “stacked” can still be a memorable competition. Such is the case for the BTS Pro Series: Americas. EG has won tournaments with far more depth of rosters than Beyond the Summit’s introductory online event. That doesn’t change the fact that it is still an impressive display of EG”s ability to adapt and come back from initially unfavorable situations.

As obviously alluded to in the tournaments’ namesake, the event featured some of the strongest American teams vying to win the event. Teams like business associates, Thunder Predator, and Quincy Crew. Though there weren’t any top competitors from China, Southeast Asia, or Europe attempting to compete with them, it was still going to be a difficult competition.


Going into the group stage, it was clear the EG had their work cut out for them if they wanted to win the event. Though they did a solid job in the round-robin — placing third out of the eight teams — they showed some degree of inconsistency. They lost their match against Cloud9 (one of the worst performing teams in this tournament). At the same time, Quincy Crew and CR4ZY both looked capable of winning the entire event. It was going to be a tough road ahead. 

There would be no rest leading up to their next test. Right from the beginning, they had to once again face off against CR4ZY. Playing a close match against them, they eventually won the series 2-1. The celebration would be cut short, as they squared off against the undefeated Quincy Crew. Their undefeated streak would not end there, as Quincy took the series 2-0. 

It wasn’t encouraging either in the Lower Bracket Final that EG had difficulty getting past Thunder Predator. It was going to take a whole shift if they were going to take the Grand Final. They did just that. In an impressive series of events, EG not only was able to finally take a game off of Quincy Crew, but ended up taking three to win the entire event. Even though Quincy Crew wasn’t the strongest team in the world, their form at this tournament was still very impressive — not enough to defeat EG, though.
