Five days since Evil Geniuses had a roster shakeup, we now know who’s going to fill in the place of “StuDyy”, and it’s none other than the previous world champion Christopher “Parasite” Durate.
“Parasite” will be joining the roster of Anthony “NAMELESS” Wheeler, Colt “Havok” McLendon, and Jared “Nagafen” Harrell on Evil Geniuses for the $200,000 Call of Duty World League Anaheim Open next week.
Following a top eight finish at the CWL Global Pro League Stage One Playoffs on May 28, Evil Geniuses felt that a roster change was necessary, leading to the release of Jeremy “StuDyy” Astacio. Since EG and StuDyy parted ways on May 31, the team has been practicing with Parasite, but the organization waited until earlier today to officially announce the roster change.
Parasite is considered one of Call of Duty veterans, having been well-known for his time as a part of the Fariko Impact dynasty during Black Ops II, when he won the $1 million Call of Duty Championship in 2013. Additionally, Parasite has plenty of experience playing with all three of the members of Evil Geniuses. He played with Nagafen and Havok for roughly two months at the end of the Advanced Warfare and Black Ops III seasons respectively, and he has teamed with NAMELESS multiple times since 2012.
We will be seeing how the new EG lineup performs on CWL Anaheim Open, which kicks off on June 16.
