Almost a year and a half ago, Gambit created one of the biggest surprises in the Counter-Strike world by winning the PGL Major Krakow. Weeks after the victory, team leader Danylo “Zeus” Teslenko left the team to go back to his former love Natus Vincere.
Zeus’ replacements Bektiyar “fitch” Bahytov and then Denis “seized” Kostin didn’t help the team to come back to a level good enough to satisfy the only CIS players that have won a CSGO Major.
The arrival of Nikolay “mir” Bityukov and loaned coach Andrey “B1ad3” Gorodenskiy didn’t change much of the teams dynamics. About a month ago, Abay “Hobbit” Khassenov was placed on the transfer list and was joined yesterday by Dauren “AdreN” Kystaubayev.
In that context, Gambit is now looking to add 2 players to replace the 2 Kazakh star players. According to our information, they already found one of them with the benched Russian player form AVANGAR Dmitry “dimasick” Matvienko.
The second player that Gambit is looking to buy is Vadim “Flarich” Karetin from pro100. The Latvian player was already talked for bigger teams in the past when he played for a bit with Na’Vi when s1mple and flamie were in talks to join SK Gaming.
The Flarich case is more complicated than dimasick as sources told us that the pro100 organization is not letting the player go that easily and heavy negotiations are happening between Gambit and the organization owned by a former Gambit player… Zeus.
