Gambit pull out of ESEA MDL
Gambit have withdrawn from ESEA MDL with immediate effect, a league official has confirmed to HLTV.org.
The PGL Major Krakow champions leave MDL after just eight matches in order to focus on their upcoming offline events, according to ESEA.
With this decision, Gambit will be removed from the league at the end of the season and sent down to the Open division. However, there is still a chance that they can claim a spot in one of the higher divisions (Main, Intermediate or Advanced) via a process similar to the invitation system that was in place this season.
Gambit are currently preparing for ESL One Cologne, with their first match pitting them against mousesports. The Kazakhstani team have two offline tournaments scheduled for August, IEM Shanghai and DreamHack Masters Stockholm.
