April 19th, 2016 18:54

Gambit Gaming have announced via their official website that they have completed their squad with the addition of Ivan "spaze" Obrezhan

Gambit had been scouring the market for a new fifth player after parting ways with Jan "wayLander" Rahkonen, citing the inability to "find a compromise" with the the Finnish talent.

Ivan "spaze" Obrezhan joins Gambit for free after Method decided to release their Russian lineup on Monday. While playing for the former PiTER team, the 18-year-old attended the CIS Minor Championship, where he caught Gambit's eye during the semi-final match between the two sides.


spaze signs for Gambit 

In a statement, Gambit explained that they believe spaze will "acquire the necessary experience" to compete at the highest level by "working together with veterans of the CS:GO scene".

“spaze is one of the youngest and most skilled players in Russia, who fits our team and playstyle, so our choice was kind of obvious," team coach Alexandr "beast" Yakovlev said in a statement.

"We all are glad to welcome Ivan to Gambit and can’t wait for the first scrims with him. Root for Gambit!"

spaze will make his debut for Gambit on Thursday as the team will take on HellRaisers in the SL I-League Invitational.

The Russian team now have: 

Russia Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov
Kazakhstan Rustem "mou" Telepov
Kazakhstan Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev
Russia Dmitry "hooch" Bogdanov 
Russia Ivan "spaze" Obrezhan  

Kazakhstan Alexander "BeAst" Yakovlev (coach)

ye, but judging by CIS LAN`s, he is not even close to "onliner". Very confident player. Like #oldflamie. I dont see problems here especially when he have such experienced teammates.
2016-04-19 19:16
if i remember correctly he had better lan rating than online. but those were regional lans. i expect great things from him though!

2016-04-19 18:57
He is russian so no communication problems, he is also by far the best player in ex-method, at least in terms of stats. No so sure if he is better than WayLander tho, but as always - we will see, Gambit has potential to be a solid tear 2 team that can fight against tear 1.
2016-04-19 18:57
yeah,maybe if they do well they can be like Mouz or CLG
2016-04-19 19:07
waylander knew russian very well,there were no communication problems
2016-04-19 19:19
I am aware of that, just saying that Spaze is a promising pick up.

spaze is reaaallly good online, if he can bring it on LAN he would be an insane pickup for them. young trainable talent that speaks russian. But they are definitely gonna lose that burst potential that wayLander had on LAN. Gl anway

Anyone know why they didn't choose electronic? Spaze is a good player, but electronic seems like he has the most potential for a CIS youngster. Will be interesting to see how this works out, not sure it will be a huge upgrade from waylander but we'll see.
2016-04-19 20:07
Electronic plays in Empire, and have contract with them. Empire is a solid russian org, and even maybe Empire org > Gambit org.
