We are glad to announce that according to the results of tryouts Gambit Esports organization has decided to sign contracts with Ivan "FIRees" Silantiev and Valentin "NikSar" Zimakov. Together with Danil "Diamondprox" Reshetnikov they will represent the basis of our line-up in the next season of LoL Continental League.
FIRees and NikSar have been playing on the professional stage for quite a long period of time and have already got to become CIS region champions. Now they have a great opportunity to repeat their success being a part of Gambit.
Gambit LoL current roster:
Ivan "FIRees" Silantiev - Top Lane
Danil "Diamondprox" Reshetnikov - Jungle
Valentin "NikSar" Zimakov - AD Carry
Danil "Diamondprox" Reshetnikov on Ivan and Valentin:
"During long enough tryouts FIRees and NikSar have shown themselves as the strongest candidates for their roles with both in-game and out-of-game qualities: critical thinking, stress resisting, the ability to adapt quickly to different situations, fortitude and other qualities, needed for an efficient pro player. I'm glad that few weeks of hard work on tryouts bore fruit in the form of team players, who I can rely on."
Nevertheless, the process of line-up selecting hasn't been finished yet, that's been the reason for us to deny taking part in LCL Open Cup. We are still looking for the players to hold the positions of a Mid Laner and a Support and if you still didn't have time to apply you can do it right now. Requirements for candidates are as follows:
ELO by the end of the Season 6: Diamond 1 EUW/CN/KR, Master EUNE/NA, Master 300+ in the other servers;
A filled application form;
Fluent Russian/ability to learn Russian or knowledge of English;
Age 17+ by January 25, 2017.
To apply you need to send a filled application form to firstname.lastname@example.org. The format of the application form is given below:
Date of birth;
Language proficiency (Russian, English);
Possibility to attend boot camp in Moscow from January 1, 2017 to October 2017;

What causes the desire to join our team?
Any additional information you'd like to share with us;
Don't be afraid to try yourself and maybe you are the one to become that element our team is missing!
Danil "Diamondprox" Reshetnikov on continuing tryouts:
"As for two remaining roles, based on the tryouts we still cannot decide on the ideal appropriate candidates so these positions are still vacant. Since we don't go to Saint Petersburg for the tournament we have an extra month to select the players for Mid Lane and Support positions. For these roles we'd like to find reasonably proactive gamers with ability to carry and who can be trained for macro game and also those who can work on and strive for self-perfection and are also able to work in a team.
I'm eagerly waiting for the moment when we have the full line-up to explore together the trail of League of Legends."
