This isn’t the first time the two parties have collaborated. Earlier in 2021, Dr. Kanojia assisted the team during the Singapore Major and the WePlay AniMajor, where the organisation managed to finish second in both tournaments.
Danny Engels, Director of Gaming Excellence at Evil Geniuses, spoke on the collaboration in a release: “At Evil Geniuses, there is no settling. We are constantly pushing for what’s next, how we can evolve, and how we take our teams to the next level. That’s why we’ve enlisted the coaching support of Dr. K and Healthy Gamer.
“Having helped millions of gamers worldwide – and a gamer himself – Dr. K is uniquely qualified to play the role of Mindset and Performance Coach for us. When you’ve maxed out on skill and technique, becoming champions comes down to teamwork and performance under pressure, and Dr. K has helped our team reach the next level.”
