EG CEO confirms Danny’s 2023 absence, teases League roster’s 2 new additions

Evil Geniuses CEO Nicole LaPointe Jameson confirmed today that the team’s starting AD carry on its League of Legends team in 2023 will not be Kyle “Danny” Sakamaki. Danny took a break from professional League to pursue mental health betterment prior to this year’s World Championship and has not played on the pro stage since the 2022 LCS Summer Split playoffs. 

“One of these changes is related to our ADC role, which rightfully raises questions around the status of Danny,” LaPointe Jameson said. “While he won’t be starting with us this split, I’m happy to say he is still an Evil Genius and we continue to support him.”
