The rumormill is turning once more with multiple teams being left without an organization

The rumormill is turning once more with multiple teams being left without an organization. Team Secret, Team Tinker and Team Malaysia are all hot prospects on the market but rumor has it that two, if not all three of these are close to being affiliated with the GoodGame Agency, the agency behind the Evil Geniuses brand.

About two weeks ago, Mushi and his former Orange teammates announced a reunion under a new banner, as the players left the Titan organization. While no new sponsor has been announced just yet, the rumor mill keeps spinning and it looks as if their fate has already been decided. For months there has been a rumor about Evil Geniuses, or rather the GoodGame Agency, having strong intentions of expanding towards the South-East Asian region. In fact, during TI4, supposedly the Titan squad has been approached to possibly play under a new banner and create a new brand, the third for the GG Agency. The path seems to be paved as Team Malaysia did in fact split from Titan and are without a new sponsorship. Players and former manager Oling however did state that nothing is set in stone yet, but their improved presence in the social media sphere indicates that a deal is imminent.

In the meantime, the European scene also sees two teams without a sponsor, in fact two of the currently strongest rosters. Teams Tinker and Secret are currently sitting at the top of the European scene and Team Tinker has publicly stated that they are in fact already under a new banner, yet their sponsor is not ready to reveal himself. Sounds familiar? In 2012, NoTidehunter attended Dreamhack Winter, stating they are fully under the wings of a new sponsor already, who just did not want to reveal himself. It turned out to be a new brand created by the GoodGame Agency.
