Evil Geniuses (Coach)

Sam "Bulba" Sosale is a professional American Dota 2 player currently coaching for Evil Geniuses Evil Geniuses.

Professional Career[edit]

EZ Style / It's Gosu eSports[edit]

In September 2011, Bulba joined EZ Style as their mid player. The team would later be picked up by It's Gosu eSports.[1] This team disbanded in April 2012.[2]

Evil Geniuses[edit]

Bulba joined Evil Geniuses in May 2012.[3] The team had little success, and Bulba left in September.

Team Liquid[edit]

In December, Bulba joined Team Liquid and switched to the role of offlane. The team had much success, dominating the North American scene in 2013 and earning some high placements in many international tournaments. The team placed 7-8th after receiving a direct invite to The International 2013. In 2014, Liquid was no longer the top American team, with Evil Geniuses' new roster emerging. Without any major victories in 2014, the team did not manage to secure an invite to The International 2014. They placed second in the American qualifiers, losing to North American Rejects, and would manage to win the wildcard qualifier. They went on to do much better than expected, earning 9-10th place, much better than the winner of the American qualifiers. Afterwards, in August, Bulba would leave the team.[4]

Team Tinker[edit]

After leaving Liquid, Bulba joined Team Tinker.[5]

Return to Evil Geniuses[edit]

On December 20, 2017, Evil Geniuses on its official site announced Bulba has rejoined the team as coach, replacing SVG.[6]
