Andi steps down from Gambit

Professeur
June 10th, 2018 16:48

Andrey "Andi" Prokhorov will no longer be coaching Gambit, the organization has revealed today.

The Ukrainian joined Gambit as coach in October of last year, when he was signed by the organization to replace Mikhaylo "Kane" Blagin who departed to Andi's former team, Natus Vincere.

Andi felt that a change was necessary in Gambit

Andi worked with Gambit during a turbulent period in which the in-game leader role passed between multiple players and three players being changed in the "fifth player" spot: Bektiyar "fitch" Bahytov, Denis "seized" Kostin and Nikolay "mir" Bityukov. Accompanying that was a series of poor results—Gambit finished in last place at their last two events: StarSeries i-League Season 5 and Adrenaline Cyber League and are currently sitting at #13 in our rankings.

As a response to their bad form, Andi parted ways with the team, stating that Gambit needs a "fresh point of view":

"I made a decision to leave the team and am no longer head coach of Gambit. Some might find it strange, but it was necessary for the sake of the team. In order to win the team needs a fresh point of view and a new approach. It pains me to leave knowing that we didn't achieve the results that were expected of us by our fans. I am grateful to management, players and fans for their support." - Andi

In the meantime, Gambit's CGO Konstantin "groove" Pikiner will be accompanying the squad at events and should be standing behind them at DreamHack Open Summer and the ZOTAC Cup Masters Europe Finals.

Gambit is now down to just the five players:

Kazakhstan Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev
Kazakhstan Rustem "mou" Telepov
Russia Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov
Kazakhstan Abay "Hobbit" Khasenov
Russia Nikolay "mir" Bityukov

You don't know ofc, but russian community knows. It is he, who upgraded Na vi's nuke. In semi final(aka prefinal) of starladder vs mouz it is been Kane decision to play 3rd map nuke instead of train. And they played amazing nuke vs best team in the world on it.

It must take courage to question your job as a coach and leave your position after thinking what should be done for the team Props to this guy, whether he made the right decision or not
2018-06-10 16:54
Well this is some PC BS but there have been rumors of the core of AdreN / Dosia / mou not being above from criticism tbh.. They seem like cool guys which I don't doubt they are IRL but now with Zeus/Kane, fitch, seized implying they can be/are toxic.. and now this guy stepping down, you can be pretty much sure there's more to it, especially with the CGO taking his place.. I think someone "suggested" him it was time to " step down "

2018-06-11 10:25
lel, you are that proud of 'your' __national__ team that you cant see the truth. Gambit wins after major? Does it? After Zeus and Andi were kicked? Does it win? thats all you gotta know, my legendary major kazakh

What winning after major has to do with the fact that they didn't win in other tournaments after that? Am I claiming that they are in tip top shape right now? I stated that they are the only major champs from CIS region, what part of it you dont get? Cant I be proud of them? Every team has its ups and downs, teams come and go, team go tier 5 and come back to tier 1, thats life, everything changes but the history remains the same: Gambit is a major champion unlike any other team from CIS, including Navi, I hope expressed my point clearly to you this time.

Winning Dreamhack Minor and winning major is not even comparable you silly. So what if Gambit will win minor? what will you say? Something like Gambot tier 5 because they won minor? Who cares minor or not, they won major which means they are very capable. And even they are in bad form now doesn't change the fact that they are major champs, and can be back again, not like Navi with poor s1mple being as a hostage. Come back when Navi wins major(which will never happen, not with your lovely BOT Zeus), then talk shit Slava boy, till then stay humle ;)

It is not comparable, that's why I said that they(gamBOTs) won't achieve any of these without Zeus and Kane. but you are too retarded to understand simple English sentences. xD compare all results in CS:GO by Na`Vi and gamBOT. it's even funny, cuz Na`Vi won at least 3-4x more events than gamBOT. gamBOT can win only with Zeus, without him they are trash tier4 team who can barely win Asian Minor LUL

judging by your insults I am guessing that you are 12 year old kid, a keyboard warrior. You can keep comparing results but the fact is Gambit won major, not Navi, how many times I have to tell you? that's the fact. tier4 got major while your so called tier1 Navi is still dreaming about it so keep talking :))) If what you are telling is truth and it was because of Zeus and Kane gambit won major then Navi should win major as they went back? right? So please stop talking too much and come back with facts(when navi gets major), till then swallow your senseless pride and stay humble kid ;)

"they beat all teams bo3. Bo3 = best of three series in 2018." I think you need to go to eye doctor. They lost to TyLUL on May 28, got 2-0'ed, same with Liquid on May 19th. Got owned by Astralis on April 22nd, 2-0. And it's only few examples in 2018. Go to eye doctor immediately. :D)))

winning major is a lifetime achievement, people cry if they win major or lose finals, that's how it is important for them, ask any pro player. "There were lots of shit people who won a championship and could never prove anything else." - You won major, you don't have to prove anything, it's like golden medal in olympics. Of course expectations are high after that but still, you don't have to prove anything.

After Zeus' departure they became tier4 team instead of tier1. Their most epic fail was kick of Kane and forcing Zeus to go. And all these after Major victory. It's insanely STUPID. CIS Cybersport as always. With braindead kicks instead of solving problems. I hate all GamBOT players cuz they are nothing, but arrogant without any reason. When they started winning (when Zeus came) I was happy for them and I thought that it is 2nd top worldclass team like Na`Vi.CSGO, but CIS mentality as always won and they are s*cking dick right know as hard as possible. And I'm VERY HAPPY for Na`Vi, it seems like they found their true mentality power. They are as 1 family, no suckers who want kick teammate, no retards, no ragers (only rare things), smart practicing and grinding to the top. They are TOP3 after Zeus' comeback and it's NOT A ACCIDENT. All persons from Na`Vi grew up and I'm extremely happy for them.

And if you want to argue with that then it means after Zeus came back to NAVI he should win major now, right? Wrong!

No Zeus = no GamBOT LUL Before Zeus they were trash tier3 team, when Zeus came they won some events and Major. Accident? LMAO So they forced Zeus to go and now they suck balls. Stop dreaming Mr.Kazakh. Your GamBOT is nothing without Zeus and Kane. And look at Na`Vi now, they are top3 atm with GOD Zeus. But GamBOT are struggling like tier4 random dipshit team without him =) aaand I think GamBOT deserved that cuz of their arrogance. they are too cocky and arrogant to be "top team" =) so they are at the level they must actually be right know =)

im mad cuz they kick their best parts and keep their worst parts. and they became arrogant pigs, like were fnatic back in the days. but fnatic at last understood that EGO is shit and confident people don't use EGO too much. same for S1mple btw, he changed cuz he became REALLY CONFIDENT person who can normally speak with people without retarded arrogance or other showing offs. So: S1mple changed fnatic changed GamBOTs are still arrogant. (for no reason btw LUL)

are u sure that *they kick their best parts* ? I would like to think that zeus wanted to join navi and major doubled his price ... Zeus is businessman , we see it in every personal video . Gambit need IGL thats true . But i cant blame them about kicking zeus+kane coz we dont know how that was in real...
