Gambit Esports is one of the biggest names in the CIS Dota 2 scene. There were times when many considered this squad to be among the best in the world. However, a series of roster changes had a negative impact on their results. COVID-19 didn’t help matters either, which is why the team decided to make a fresh start.
Fast-forward six months and we finally have information about the team’s new roster. What’s interesting is that there is only one returning player from the previous roster, Danial “xsvamp1re” Alibaev. He will play alongside a few upcoming CIS players. Although they don’t have a much in the way of competitive experience, these players have shown that they have what it takes to be on the team.
Gambit’s new roster:
- Anton “yy” Shkredow
- Artem “Lorenof” Melnik
- Andrey “meLes” Romanov
- Danial “xsvamp1re” Alibaev
- Albert “eine” Garayev
If you’ve been following the CIS Dota 2 scene recently, you’ve probably heard of ‘eine’. He was a part of VP.Prodigy and also played on a few other notable CIS teams. Moreover, he used to be a part of Gambit for a few months back in 2018.
The second name that might also seem familiar is ‘Lorenof’. He played in the OMEGA League Europe Divine Division that took place a few months ago as part of Team Unique.
