Gambit Youngsters will not change their roster to participate in the third tournament of the Regional Major Rankings for the CIS – IEM New York 2020 in CS: GO. This was announced by the insider Alexey OverDrive Biryukov on VKontakte.
Biryukov added that now instead of coach Ivan F1_N Kochugov, CEO of the organization Konstantin Groove Pikiner is working with the team.
“At CIS RMR Gambit Youngsters will play with their original line-up, that is, Hobbit will be the substitute. While the team instead of Fin is coached by Grove (CEO of Gambit), and Fin’s future will be determined after the announcement of the punishment for using the bug. By the way, Groove is a very good option. In the early to mid-2000s, he was a kind of brain of our 1.6 scene. The rounds and spreads of the teams where he played were copied by all the CIS ”.
On September 5, F1_N confirmed that he was using a bug with spectator mode in CS: GO in an official match. After that, Gambit suspended him from working with the team until the official verdict on the situation was announced by the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC).
Abai HObbit Khasenov joined Gambit Youngsters at the end of July and became the sixth participant in the roster. The team played with him in a number of online tournaments, but did not rise above 3-4 places.
The final tournament of the RMR series for the CIS – IEM New York 2020 – will be held from October 13 to 25. 12 teams will compete for $ 50,000, as well as qualifying points required to get a slot at the ESL One Rio 2020 Major.
