Hobbit takes over as Gambit IGL
Abay "Hobbit" Khasenov has revealed that he has taken over the in-game leader role on Gambit.
The decision follows Gambit's disappointing campaign at ELEAGUE Major Boston, where the PGL Major Krakow champions were sent packing in the New Legends Stage following defeats to Quantum Bellator Fire, SK and fnatic.
Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov had recently taken on the in-game leader role to let Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev "play the way he had played" when Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko was on the roster and be the star of the team", Bektiyar "fitch" Bahytov said while at the Major. But the team's early exit in Atlanta prompted yet another role swap - the third since Zeus left to rejoin Natus Vincere.
Since the Major, Gambit have been fielding former Na`Vi member Denis "seized" Kostin as their fifth player instead of fitch, but they have yet to comment on the future of the 25-year-old, who joined the team in August, initially on a three-month trial.
