Gambit started Week 5 winning against hopeless outsiders of the tournament Team Empire. However, on Sunday, in a very important match against Albus NoX Luna, the victory went to the reigning champions of the league. This weekend our team has to take revenge against Natus Vincere and Vega Squadron for our losses in the first round of the split.
The upcoming matches:
July 2nd, 17:00 CEST Gambit CIS vs Natus Vincere
July 3rd, 18:00 CEST Gambit CIS vs Vega Squadron
Aleksandr "Zak" Shcherbakov:
"It is second week in a row that our team finishes with the score 1-1, not able to move from the position that we occupied after the first round of the split. We are still in the play-offs zone, sharing 2-4 place with 2 other teams, but we are not able to solely secure the second place. This week we managed to get a confident victory against Team Empire, and our jungler Babunia again showed his brilliant level of play, becoming one of the leaders in a race for the MVP title. His Olaf was extremely good. Our strategy was pressuring the toplane, which we knew was the weakest link in Team Empire. Our players completed this task pretty well, leaving Mumus on his Irelia out of the game. In the second match we met with current leaders of the LCL, ANOX, and lost again. To our greatest disappointment, our very cheesy strategy didn’t work at all against a team that is excellent at rotations all over the map. We gave up a significant lead during the early game, and LeX on Kog’Maw couldn’t cope with the enemy team. Next week we have an intense schedule, playing against Na’Vi and Vega, who are our rivals in our run for a spot in play-offs. We will do our best to gain form this week and not to disappoint our fans".
