A guy called Goro77 asked oGsSuperNova “Are you happy that huk is joining team EG, so he can’t harass you anymore? :P” And the answer he got back was “Goro87 No T.T… Very sad…“. This more or less confirms that HuK will leave Team Liquid and join up with IdrA, DeMusLiM and the others in Evil Geniuses.
The question is why. What does Evil Geniuses have that Team Liquid can’t give him? Money? Better practice partners? I don’t know… But I think this is a strange move if this is true.
TSL_PuMa that recently won the North American StarLeague Season 1 after beating oGsMC in the final with 4-3 seems to have signed a contract with the American team Evil Geniuses.Evil Geniuses that have players like IdrA and iNControl seems to have signed the strong Terran player TSL_PuMa to their roster. But it seems like the TSL management aren’t that happy with the transfer of PuMa.
The manager Lee says (Translated by Milkis over at Teamliquid.net):
“It is disappointing that we have to make a decision like this, but it’s extremely objectionable that Evil Geniuses would ignore the coaches completely and directly go talk to the player”
There are still no official news on any of the Evil Geniuses pages. But the rumor say that Evil Geniuses will pay PuMa’s salary and also give him LAN support. We just have to wait and see how this will turn out, my guess is that we will see an official post by Evil Geniuses will post something within the next 24 hours.
I like that more Korean players are mixed in the foreign teams so we don’t get that “Korea vs. World” as we saw in the Brood war scene. And I hope this was done in correct manners and I’m looking forward to see EGPuMa playing in more tournaments.
What do you guys think about this, comment please?
