The Evil Geniuses Master's Cup Series VII is a team league organized by Evil Geniuses; it featured twelve teams competing for a $10,000 prize pool. Several Evil Geniuses players, like IdrA, DeMusliM, Machine, and iNcontroL broadcast, as well as guest casters like djWHEAT, and PainUser, who usually cast the games played by EG. Following some controversy over language, orb was dismissed from the Evil Geniuses team house and further work for the team and was no longer the tournament's main caster. Replacing orb, Evil Geniuses employed their long-time WoW player Azael as the main host of the Series.
