Evidence Points To Helios Joining EG
When Evil Geniuses announced that they would be making roster changes one of the first positions that were cited as being a necessity to fix was that of jungler. Stephen “Snoopeh” Ellis had been considered one of the weaker links in the team for sometime and it seemed plausible that he would be moved to either substitute, analyst or a coaching role. The matter of his replacement generated much more speculation.
Today sources have revealed to us that Evil Geniuses have been in extended talks with the former CJ Entus Blaze and NaJin Black Sword jungler Shin "Helios" Dong-jin who recently left the latter team. Having moved out of the Najin house at the end of April he has since been looking for a team and has reportedly wanted to follow the growing trend of lucrative moves to the NA league for foreign players.
We have been informed on good authority that the player has already left South Korea and will be moving to the Evil Geniuses house shortly. Settling in should not be difficult for the player as he has a good grasp of English and the player has been linked with moves to the US before after having talks with Team Coast before their relegation from LCS about a potential transfer after some internal issues with his team.
Further to that only recently on his personal stream did Ellis confirm that EG were looking at a “Korean jungler”, which adds weight to the reports that he is soon to be confirmed.
Although any official comment from EG is unlikely we will give you more on this story as it develops.
