Evil Geniuses is moving on from support player Zeyzal, the 21-year-old announced last night. This news comes after EG reportedly acquired IgNar from FlyQuest for the upcoming League of Legends season.

Zeyzal joined EG after a dominant 2019 season on Cloud9. C9 came in second place in both the 2019 LCS Spring and Summer Splits and accrued enough Championship Points to qualify for the World Championship, but they were swiftly eliminated during the group stage.

Despite being a crucial part of C9’s dominance during his debut LCS year, Zeyzal wasn’t able to live up to that level on EG in 2020 while paired with former world champion Bang. The bot lane duo’s synergy was lackluster over the course of the last season.

EG has parted ways with most of its roster after a 2020 season that didn’t result in a championship win or Worlds qualification. The team is seemingly looking to rebuild around Svenskeren and Jiizuke with Impact, Lost, and IgNar reportedly set to join the organization heading into 2021.

It’s unclear right now where Zeyzal will end up playing next year.
