seized leaves Gambit

Denis "seized" Kostin is no longer contracted to Gambit, both parties have announced.

The 24-year-old had been on Gambit's transfer-list since May, just three months after being recruited as a replacement for Bektiyar "fitch" Bahytov, initially on trial.

During seized's short-lived stint with Gambit, the PGL Major Krakow champions most notably placed top-four at DreamHack Masters Marseille, but the team eventually turned to Vega Squadron talent Nikolay "mir" Bityukov in search for more firepower.

seized officially out of Gambit

In an Instagram post, the former Na`Vi player revealed that this was the case of "egos destroying good atmospheres and teams", and noted that he "truly believed in our line-up."

Gambit have earmarked Dmitry "dimasick" Matvienko and Vadim "Flarich" Karetin as potential replacements for star duo Abay "Hobbit" Khasenov and Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev, both of whom have been transfer listed by the CIS organisation.

seized recently competed in the first open qualifier for the CIS Minor alongside compatriot Dmitry "hooch" Bogdanov and ex-k1ck trio Sergey "starix" Ischuk, Nikolaj "kalinka" Rysakov and Alexander "scoobyxie" Marynych. The team, called UnderPressure, managed to secure a spot in the closed bracket after defeating DreamEaters in the semi-finals.

MiBR really is overated. Even the 2 C9 stars can't carry the deadweight on the team. The team needs 2 supports so cold and fer can bait the fuck outta them.
2018-11-01 20:39
Well that's true, I'm not saying they're the best team in the world, cause they're not ofc, and I agree that they need support players
