One of the leading gaming organizations, Evil Geniuses has announced the acquisition of a fellow American professional gaming team, Loaded.

Effective immediately, Loaded's leading Heroes of Newerth team and a part of it's staff will be tagged up with Evil Geniuses and this is certainly big news not only for the Heroes of Newerth competitive scene, but for e-Sports in general.

It is, however, uncertain what will happen with Loaded's Counter Strike, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Quake Live and World of Warcraft teams as well as the majority of the staff. Recent reports indicate that they have been released of sponsorship.

"LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – Sept. 23, 2010. –

Today, Evil Geniuses (Team EG), one of the world’s leading professional gaming brands, has announced its acquisition of fellow North American professional gaming team Loaded, LLC.

Effective immediately, Evil Geniuses welcomes Loaded’s Executive Director, Brandon Freytag, as well as its world-leading Heroes of Newerth division and associated managerial staff. Freytag will join EG’s highest level of management in continuing to grow and promoting the company’s brand globally. Additionally, in the coming days EG will announce new partnerships with former Loaded sponsors for Q4 of 2010 and Q1 of 2011.
