kUcheR to replace spaze in Gambit

Professeur
September 24th, 2016 11:17

Gambit has announced that Ivan "spaze" Obrezhan has been demoted to a substitute position in the team and replaced with Emil "kUcheR" Akhundov, who joins the team as a stand-in.

The announcement follows yesterday's controversial news regarding Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov playing in place of Evgeniy "zLex" Kim with his Gambit teammates to help Team Kazakhstan qualify for The World Championships.

Gambit cites Ivan "spaze" Obrezhan's "attitude towards the training process" and "an abundance of critical errors in official games" as the reason for a roster change shortly before the Adrenaline Cyber League LAN finals.


kUcheR will reunite with Dosia, mou and Adren

Emil "kUcheR" Akhundov was picked due to his previous experience with most of the Gambit line-up from their time in HellRaisers teams in the past. The organization stated that they will officially announce the fifth member in one month's time - after they play out the tournament in Moscow.

Along with this change, Gambit has officialy released Alexander "BeAst" Yakovlev from their coaching position, with their analyst Rustam "TsaGa" Tsagolov taking over the role.

Gambit now has the following roster:

Russia Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov
Kazakhstan Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev
Kazakhstan Rustem "mou" Telepov
Russia Dmitry "hooch" Bogdanov - Captain
Russia Emil "kUcheR" Akhundov - Stand-in

Russia Ivan "spaze" Obrezhan - Substitute
Russia Rustam "TsaGa" Tsagolov - Analyst / Coach

2016-09-24 11:33
I'd guess he was the leak on the dosia being substitute for a kazach player so they did not want a snitch playing with them and demoted him, only not to destroy his career in gaming as a professional snitch.We need lurkers, snipers, even coaches but not snitches. The end

2016-09-24 13:42
As they mentioned spaze was making crucial mistakes whet it comes to lan games, probably nerves and lack of experience that has nothing to do with his aim skill level which i would also confirm that spaze would be better aimwise, but hambit wanted kucher cause even though his aim level might not be up there woth spaze's kucher has a better thought process and would play a more calculated counter strike in critical moments, so they decided to take experience over aim. I guess this would hopefully motivate kucher to play better and who knows what the future brings, we'll see.

Kucher actually good teammate, i heard a lot of Teamspeak of old Hellraisers. He was the soul of the team, he is the player who never raging or something else. He has good chemistry with Dosia, AdreN and Mou. GL Kucher!
2016-09-24 11:23
Ye, he is the best teammate ever. But being the best teammate ever is not enough if you can pull down your teams with style like that youtube.com/watch?v=DqpNJsOaan4
2016-09-24 11:50
Can you provide links for old HellRaisers Teamspeak, please? I find it difficult to find.
2016-09-24 12:07
You can find that on youtube by trying to search for something like hellraisers vs someone (teamspeak) or (comms) or (pov). I think thats how i was finding them before where you could hear the whole team communicate in official games
2016-09-24 16:23
I heard the same story about Smithzz and Devilwalk, funny guy and keep a good chemistr in the team. However 3 of them have a shit skills by compare with their teammates
2016-09-24 15:09
retarded move I'd rather pick a young talent and hope he is a beast that picking an old player that doesn't have much else to display
2016-09-24 11:26
he will be a standin until this torunament plays out, the only thing more retarded is gambling with a "talent" you have never played with
2016-09-24 11:29
" the only thing more retarded is gambling with a "talent" you have never played with" Sorry, but usually superstars and tier god players always are kids that shines in semi-pro tiers and then gets picked up by a t1 or t2 that isn't performing and them becomes worldclass players (most of actual french players are like that, so are swedes and brazilian top players) It's a huge gambling because if it fails u could waste month but in the same time they'll never get any better with a washed up standin Instead of wasting time with him they should already be trying out youngsters This adrenaline tournament is tier 3 CIS tournament, what do they care if they fails? They have a Legends spot in majors
2016-09-24 11:34
good point especially since its a good place to test a "newb" I guess they dont had time for this and just called a friend, idk really

Some of the people here clearly never watched Spaze in Gambit... he's been awful Kucher might be too but he's a better teamplayer
2016-09-24 11:31
Exactly, some people have never watched spaze play... (watch zowie dreamhack spaze carrying gambit)
2016-09-24 11:40
expected an idiot would talk about one single event, THREE MAPS!!!!, and completely miss the bigger picture
2016-09-24 11:42
Check online games. Give me statistics where spaze played entire Lan poor idiot. Burger talking even tho probably is silver
2016-09-24 11:43
hltv.org/?pageid=247&statsfilter=2048&pl.. hltv.org/?pageid=247&statsfilter=1792&pl.. He's SHIT. Online stats also matters, without playing well in qualifiers you will not go to many LANs...
2016-09-24 11:49
So, in LANs he carries gambit... And the last 2 months, he sucked WC and New york qualifier.. Hm
2016-09-24 11:50
carried Gambit on LAN? he fucking sucked on 3 of 4, can you not read numbers?
2016-09-24 11:51
First of all there isnt alot of players that always have +kd. Second of all, kd doesnt show real impact. And compare his with teammates stats too. Dude, just stop
2016-09-24 11:53
Watch the matches because you clearly dont, he's been awful and that's why he got kicked but suppose you know better than the guys who played with him for months :DDD He played like shit while playing a favorable role/positions, kucher will take a support role and it will benefit the other players in the team
2016-09-24 12:01
Well silver NA, check others. You are the only one from 1000 people saying spaze is shit and kucher is better adition. You havent been watching shit. If whole teams underperforms, then its logical spaze will have -kd. The ignorance in this one is too stronk
2016-09-24 12:03
Clearly you didnt read many comments above or you are just ignorant Anyway, again you have to base your opinion on others making it obvious you really didnt watch him Gambit/Spaze so you are clueless in this case. Sorry. Spaze was supposed to be a star in Gambit and failed, so they get Kucher who can support role instead and other guys can take a bigger role. Surprised you cant comprehend this yet :D Anyway, bye, no point to talk with a guy who has like 50 IQ lol

2016-09-25 12:59
Im surprised not seeing single comment saying -hooch +zeus :)))))) I would actually try Zeus over jooch on a trial basis for a couple of events, but i know that AdreN said that they don't need zeus as they are satisfied with hooch's style. I guess its a case of a friendship. Hooch knows both dosia and adren for almost a decade, hooch was also an igl for team UNiTED if i remember correctly back in 2009 or so, so i guess it will take a lot for dosia and adren to kick hooch even though i wouldnt be surprised if both dosia and adren and possibly mou had a thoght of kicking him at least once, but cant say a ything due to their friendship, so they keep on trying and trying and trying, but mayb itll change one day :))))) Gl anyway
2016-09-24 16:31
Zeus skill level is slightly above hooch and will be somewhat an upgrade on that aspect, but you will get a guy known for raging a lot and losing his temper on stressful situations. Gambit benched 2 guys already now with Spaze for their bad attitude and lack of compusure on critical moments, Zeus isn't really a good fit for a team that wants to have players with a positive attitude imo.
