EG just posted on their site that they will be teaming up with SlayerS for this season of GSTL.
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA. – May 16th, 2012. – Today Evil Geniuses (EG), North America’s premier professional gaming team and a world leader in e-Sports, is honored to announce that they will be competing alongside their partner team, SlayerS, in 2012′s second season of GOM.TV’s Global Starcraft II™ Team League.
Evil Geniuses players Chris “HuK” Loranger, Marcus “ThorZaIN” Eklöf, Ho Joon “PuMa” Lee, and Jin Young “JYP” Park will join veteran GSTL players like SlayerS_MMA, SlayerS_Ryung, and SlayerS_Puzzle over the three month long season. This will be the first the Evil Geniuses team has competed in the GSTL.
Cody Conners, General Manager of Evil Geniuses, remarked, “The GSTL is one of the few events that our team hasn’t had the opportunity to compete in yet. It will be a privilege to join SlayerS, a team that has accomplished so much already in the GSTL, this season.”
Lim “BoxeR” Yo Hwan said, “I believe that the SlayerS-EG joint team is the strongest team in the league, and while we have not done well since our two consecutive titles, we would like use this joint team opportunity to win our third title.”
As this season begins fans can expect to find more information, including schedules, lineups, and scores, through Evil Geniuses’ (@EvilGeniuses) Twitter and on www.facebook.com/EvilGeniuses.
This is looking pretty awesome IMO. The two teams complement each others' weaknesses really well, and this roster is looking really deep. Can't wait to see what they come up with this season.
Slayers is now a lot better than they were since they now have two Terran who can actually beat Protoss, but I wouldn't say they're undoubtedly the favorites. MVP, Startale, and Prime still can throw out line-ups where four out of the five or all five are Code S level.

well Huk is strong, JYP is very strong vZ, Puma can help 1-1-1 fight protoss, thorzain is strong... well they add depth to Slayers that might not otherwise have been there (at the very least good cannon fodder before MMA wins everything )
Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.

This is great news, will be excited to see how Tzain does during his stay in Korea, but does anyone know about how SteelSeries/Razer will be reacted to by the respective sponsors? I know it's been a rather big deal with partnerships in the past.
