We are glad to announce that Gambit Gaming has acquired CIS League of Legends roster. The core of the team consists of three players, who are well-known amongst the fans of the game in this region:
Anton "Fomko" Fomkin – Mid Lane
Alexei "LeX" Chitac – AD Carry
Viacheslav "Archie" Egorov – Support.
In the meantime our Jungler and Top Laner are currently on a trial period:
Alexander "BloodFenix" Hallberg – Top Lane
Nikita "FatoNN" Boborenko – Jungler.
This month Gambit LoL CIS roster is taking part in a qualifier for CIS Challenger Series. CIS CS is scheduled to begin in the middle of February. CIS Challenger Series – is an analogue of North American and European Challenger Series to LoL Continental League (LCL). Our players have a following goal – qualify for LCL Summer and consequently fight for a chance to participate at International Wildcard tournaments.
It is certain that some of you are wondering why are we wasting time playing in CIS Challenger Series instead of acquiring a team that has already qualified for LoL Continental League. Given Gambit Gaming's experience in the international arena, we want to form a roster that corresponds to the requirements of our organization as well as possible. The long road ahead of us won't be easy, but it will allow us to pass all the stages a professional team has to undergo.
We believe that with the opening of LCL and new organizations entering this scene the best CIS teams will become more competitive at the international stage and thus will be able to attract League of Legends fans from other regions.
Our next goal is to assemble a European roster to take part in a qualifier for Summer Challenger Series.
