Evil Geniuses Jojopyun and Tyler1 Do the “Take The L” Dance From Fortnite
Watch the LCS Spring winners do the Fortnite moves
Evil Geniuses (EG) lifted its first-ever League of Legends Championship (LCS) trophy by winning the 2022 Spring Split in a quick 3-0 sweep over 100 Thieves. On top of that, it is the fastest final in the history of the LCS and following this, Evil Geniuses also cemented its spot at the Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) in Busan, Korea. The team had a terrific run in the lower bracket for that spot in the LCS finals. Before its series against Cloud9 in Lower Bracket Round 2, the team met League of Legends streamer and personality Tyler “tyler1” Steinkamp to shoot the promotion video of the Finals. Clips from this shoot were played in the Opening Ceremony of the LCS Spring Finals which was presented by tyler1.
Documenting this interaction, EG released a new vlog titled “Last Stop Before Houston” as part of the EG Files series on Youtube.

In the video that Evil Geniuses posted, the players talked about why they wanted to win. The Assistant coach for Evil Geniuses Earl Han said players were getting stressed since they were in a tense environment and the only way to get out of that situation is to make it to the LCS Spring Finals and then go to the Mid-Season Invitational. Philippe "Vulcan" Laflamme said, “As a team, I want to win a split because Biofrost has two more trophies than me and I think that’s f**** annoying that someone else has more trophies playing my role.”
Tyler1 and Joseph Joon "jojopyun" Pyun decide on doing a Fortnite dance while doing the promo video shoot. They both said that they could not do the floss and one of the EG members suggested they do the “Take the L” dance from Fortnite. Meanwhile, Kacper “Inspired” Słoma also tried to teach Jeong "Impact" Eon-young and Vulcan how to do the Floss.
What makes the Fortnite dances so funny and entertaining is the fact that jojopyun was a former Fortnite pro. He would often stream snipe Fortnite pros and 1v1 them and beat them while at it. He became the first Fortnite pro player to join the LCS.
He followed up on his banter and trash talk by making it to the top of the North American Solo Queue ladder in just 18 months and managed to grab the attention of Evil Geniuses coach Peter Dun.
In the video, Evil Geniuses’ members also spoke about what winning against Cloud9 and getting their revenge felt like. Now, the team will be competing in the MSI 2022 at Busan, Korea which is scheduled to begin on 10th May. EG will go up against the likes of G2 Esports from Europe and ORDER from Oceania.
