Daniil "Zeus" Teslenko becomes the fifth and final member of Gambit Esports Counter-Strike: Global Offensive division. While looking for a new captain an in-game leader, we simply couldn’t ignore Daniil’s leadership qualities and his years-long history of success. Zeus returns to competitive Counter-Strike from a short period of inactivity and will lead our team to new heights!
Gambit Esports Club reached an agreement with Natus Vincere regarding Daniil’s transfer. We would like to thank Na’Vi for a prompt paperwork handling and are glad to announce that Daniil has signed a contract with Gambit until the end of 2017 season.
Our organization has a lot of faith in this five-men roster. Our next goal is to assemble a coaching staff: a manager and a coach for Gambit CS:GO.
Two weeks from now, on October 27 - 30, we will take part at ESWC - the tournament takes place at the largest video game expo in France, Paris Games Week. Whereas our debut will happen today at 15:00 CEST. We are facing FaZe Clan in the quarterfinals of WCA EU Qualifiers.
Konstantin "groove" Pikiner, Gambit Esports CEO: "I’ve known Daniil closely for more than 10 years. In 2007 and 2008 we worked together in Virtus.pro. Daniil is someone who never gets complacent with his achievements - victories for him stand above all. He loves competing and commits himself to it completely, does his best to achieve results. I am glad to welcome a player of his calibre to Gambit Esports!"
Daniil "Zeus" Teslenko on joining Gambit Esports: "Hello guys! It’s time to clarify my situation and provide an official statement that many of you have been waiting for.
I remember walking down a street with Edward in 2009 and coming up with a name for our new team… We had just finished watching "Avatar", a movie that told a story about a unique tribe called Na’Vi. That’s how it all began…
Today everyone knows Natus Vincere as one of the most famous, successful and serious Esports organizations. For me Na'Vi was like home, I took part in establishing it, I was proud of it. I spent six years doing all I can to make it the way it is right now, an organization that you love!
Obviously, it is difficult for many, including myself, that we part ways, but NA'VI will always be a part of me, and I will remain a part of its history… I would like to wish these guys to move only forward towards their goals and represent "Born to Win" name with pride.
I am beginning a new path, since I won’t let go off my goals! I will share this path with Gambit Esports team!!! I know that many of my fans, acquaintances and friends were worried about me and my future career, therefore I hope that they will approve of my choice and will continue sincerely supporting me, this time as a part of a new roster! I have a lot of responsibilities and duties in my new team. Perhaps it won’t be easy at first, but it never stopped me from new beginnings, and I had a lot of them! I promise to invest all my efforts, patience and experience to lead my new teammates and organization to success!!! Believe in us and root for Gambit Esports, and we won’t let you down!
