Evil Geniuses (EG) is a professional eSports organization that includes both divisions for traditional eSports games and a powerhouse fighting game division founded in 2010 and currently including multiple Evolution and major tournament winners. Currently, they also brand themselves as a "new media agency specializing in contracting professional gamers, creating online and offline video game broadcasts, and developing engaging marketing initiatives aimed at attracting and influencing gamers worldwide." They entered the Super Smash Bros. Melee scene on May 9th, 2014, sponsoring PPMD.
