The British Gambit Gaming have announced that their CS:GO squad will be receiving a member swap.
Ivan “spaze” Obrezhan will be replaced by Emil “kUcheR” Akhundov. kUcheR will represent the organization until the next of the LAN Finals of Adrenaline Cyber League, when the team will decide their permanent fifth member.
Gambit states that the reason for the change is spaze’s “attitude towards the training process” and “an abundance of critical errors in official games” which has “forced [them] to take a risk and conduct a roster change shortly prior to the start of an upcoming LAN tournament.”
Gambit has also stated that the reason for choosing kUcheR is the fact that he has experience with most of the current Gambit roster from their old Hellraisers days.
Along with this, they have also announced that Alexandr “beast” Yakovlev’s head coaching position will be temporarily assumed by their analyst, Rustam “TsaGa” Tsagolov. Alexandr was released in August due to “Gambit’s unsatisfying results in the first half of 2016.”
Gambit’s CS:GO roster is now as follows:
Mikhail “Dosia” Stolyarov
Dauren “AdreN” Kystaubayev
Rustem “mou” Telepov
Dmitry “hooch” Bogdanov – Captain
Emil “kUcheR” Akhundov – Stand-in
Ivan “spaze” Obrezhan – Substitute
Rustam “TsaGa” Tsagolov – Analyst
