Evil Geniuses’ Filipino star Abed will be temporarily competing for the Among Us stack in BTS Pro Series 3.

The announcement was first posted by the team’s new offlaner, Kuku. Besides Abed, Among Us consists of four players who were recently let go by their team. Fnatic had just released 23savage and Jabz. Geek Fam disbanded its roster, citing uncertainty with the Dota Pro Circuit season, leaving Kuku and Matthew “Whitemon” Filemon teamless.

SURPRISE! 🎉 Here's our team Among Us line up that will participate in BTS Pro Series – Season 3 Tournament only! 23Savage/EG.Abed/Kuku/Jabz/Whitemon

Based on their most recent roles, the team will likely line up in the following positions:

  1. 23savage
  2. Abed
  3. Kuku
  4. Jabz
  5. Whitemon

Kuku emphasized that the stack will participate in just one tournament. The Southeast Asian division of BTS Pro Series 3 will take place from Sept. 12 to 27, featuring $50,000 in prize money and 10 teams from the region.

Abed most recently stood in for Geek Fam in ESL One Thailand: Asia after star carry Raven left for Fnatic. The superstar mid laner has been frozen out of EG’s competitive plans since the COVID-19 pandemic forced most tournaments to be hosted online. EG enlisted Russian wunderkind gpk for OMEGA League, which also featured the return of their offlaner Ramzes as the team opted to compete on the European servers.
