Strategy and Meta Adaptations

Reflecting on Evil Geniuses’ progress, potter drew parallels to their previous season’s journey, where strategic adjustments were key to their development. “Because we had the perfect amount of problems from the beginning of the year, by each match we knew exactly what we needed to work on. So we’re constantly feeling our progress and our confidence growing together as a squad.

The addition of Iso and the buffs to Neon could potentially redefine Evil Geniuses’ approach, akin to how integrating Demon1 proved pivotal last year. Potter acknowledged the team’s capability to influence the meta in their favor, echoing sentiments shared by other top coaches in the league.
