About[edit]

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.[1] 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.[1][2] 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.[3] Replacing orb, Evil Geniuses employed their long-time WoW player Azael as the main host of the Series.[4]
