Evil Geniuses's will come back to the big stage. The surprising part: Clinton 'Fear' Loomis won't be playing for his former home, but another strong NA team that actually had a good performance in The Chongqing Major qualifier and beat every other NA team. J.Storm was the biggest surprise of the North American qualifier for the upcoming Major. March's squad beat every other North American top team, including EG and Forward Gaming, to get the first seed of their region.

Despite that success J.Storm will bring in a new player to replace Milan 'MiLAN' Kozomara on the support position. The Bosnian player was the only one that didn't live in North America, which probably complicated practicing and communication.

They decided to sign one of the most known North American Dota 2 players of all-time. However, Fear's comeback in the professional scene didn't happen out of a sudden.

The veteran already explained in September that he's checking his options to make a comeback as a position 1 player. He joined Jacky 'EternaLEnVy' Mao's stack to qualify for the upcoming Major after EE and JingJun 'Sneyking' Wu left compLexity Gaming. However, they didn't succeed and disbanded immediately afterwards.

Now we'll see Fear back in action, not as a position 1 player like he hoped, but at least on a team with enough opportunity and talent to be a threat to NA's top teams. He already played position 4 support for EG back in the days in 2016 at The Manila Major and The Shanghai Major before he switched back to the carry position.

I'm happy to be re-united with old friends and new talent on J.Storm. I have been playing Dota from its roots with March and DeMoN and we have been very good friends ever since. I am very excited to be playing with FoREv, Moo and Bryle and I think they are some of the best core players I could wish to play with this season. - Clinton 'Fear' Loomis
