Nikolay "mir" Bityukov is replacing Denis "seized" Kostin in the starting line-up of Gambit CS:GO. Nikolay "mir" Bityukov was leased by Gambit Esports from Vega Squadron. Denis "seized" Kostin is put on the transfer list and moved to a substitute position.

Mir spent the past one and a half years playing for Vega Squadron. Together with "sharks" he managed to win two tournaments of China Top series and attend PGL Major Krakow. In April of 2018 Vega Squadron removed him from the starting line-up.

In the nearest future our new line-up will attend StarLadder i-League Season 5 (May 28 - June 3, Ukraina Kyiv) and DreamHack Summer (June 16 - 18, Shvecia  Jönköping). Mir’s LAN debut with Gambit will take place in Kyiv on May 28 at 15:00 CEST. Gambit is facing AVANGAR in the first round of StarLadder i-League.

We would like to remind that Nikolay’s debut with Gambit CS:GO took place this Saturday. Our team managed to qualify for ESL One: Cologne by overcoming Valiance, Heroic and Space Soldiers.
