According to earlier reports, Danielle “Jiizuke” Di Mauro will fight next year not in Europe, but overseas by the Atlantic Ocean. The Italian midlaner has today been officially presented as a player of Evil Geniuses, who after a few years return to the League of Legends Championship Series.
For the 23-year-old this will be the first opportunity to present their skills outside the Old Continent. So far he has only fought on the Italian stage in Spain, and for the last two years in the EU LCS and League of Legends European Championship, which is the most prestigious European struggle. In them he represented the colors of Team Vitality, with which he won, among others third place during play-offs and was promoted to Worlds 2018. At the world championships, Jiizuke and the company were eliminated in the group stage, but considering that for three players it was the first season at the highest level of European competition, they could have reasons to be satisfied . These were definitely fewer this year – both splits Vitality ended in the quarter-finals, and the lack of enough Championship Points did not entitle Bees to fight in Regional Qualifier.
Thus, we have already learned the full line-up of Evil Geniuses at LCS 2020. Jiizuke is one of the two players without the status of North American resident – the second is the two-time world champion, Bae “Bang” Jun-sik, who last year played the 100 Thieves flag. We will see Tristan “Zeyzal” Stidam known from previous performances for Cloud9 alongside the Korean. A plus of EG may be the synergy between the supporter and the jungle, because Dennis “Svenskeren” Johnsen also joined the C9. As if there were few players from Cloud9, Evil Geniuses decided to also bring Colin “Kumo” Zhao.
