Evil Geniuses was al sinds enige tijden de clan organisatie die Grubby kon onderhouden in zijn progamer carriere. Vandaag, vlak voor het MLG evenement, maakt de organisatie bekend dat de twee partijen uit elkaar zijn gegaan.

 

Vanuit het statement blijkt het allemaal op goede voet te zijn verlopen.

 

Quote:
Los Angeles, California – March 31, 2011. – Today, Evil Geniuses (EG), one of the world’s leading professional gaming brands, has parted ways with Manuel “Grubby” Schenkhuizen and closed the WarCraft III division indefinitely.

Schenkhuizen has been a tremendous asset to Team EG since signing with the company in 2009. He not only represented EG well in terms of results, but in promoting EG's brand globally. In 2010 alone, Manuel achieved numerous podium placements including second place finishes at both the World Cyber Games Grand Finals and the International E-Sports Federation.

"I would like to thank EG for my time spent in the team. I wish everyone all the best in the future as well. Shout-out to EG.CS, been a pleasure getting to know you and hanging out together." Schenkhuizen said.

“It was an honor to have Manuel representing Team EG around the world,” said Scott Smith, Managing Director for Evil Geniuses. “We wish him nothing but good luck in the future.”

Looking to the future, it is within the interests of both parties to achieve their own goals on paths separate from each other. EG would like to both thank Manuel “Grubby” Schenkhuizen for his time and wish him the best of luck as he continues his career as an independent professional gamer.

 

Grubby zal volgens het statement als individuele professionele gamer doorgaan. De hybrid speler die zich op dit moment erg op Starcraft 2 focussed zal dit weekend op MLG spelen. Daar bevind hij zich in de open bracket en moet hij tussen de 265 andere deelnemers zich plaatsen voor de eindrondes. Meer hierover hier.
