After a long absence from the Dota 2 competitive scene, Gambit Esports is all set to return with some sizeable roster changes.

Midlaner Danil "gpk" Skutin and safelaner Kiyalbek "dream" Tayirov have been benched.
Gambit Esports Adds yy, Lorenof, meLes, eine
With some relatively newer and unknown players, Gambit Esports has undergone some drastic roster changes. Joining XSvamp1Re on the roster will be:
yy last played for Team Spirit before they, like Gambit Esports, stopped playing in leagues and went inactive. Since May, yy has been standing in for teams like Team Unique and HellRaisers. He will be assuming the carry duties for this team.
A young prospect who is only 17 years of age will be playing as the midlaner for Gambit Esports. He kickstarted his career in January 2020 with NOVA and since then has been playing with the organization of Team Unique only. He will certainly be wanting to carve out a name for himself in the professional scene with Gambit Esports.
Not much is known about MeLes currently as he only had a short stint with Cyberium Seed in September 2020. Other than that, he stood in for B8 and Gambit Esports in April-May for a couple of matches. He will be playing the offlane role for Gambit Esports.
Probably the most experienced and the possible captain for the squad, eine will be assuming the hard support role for Gambit Esports. The player previously played for VP.Prodigy, also a very young team, where he enjoyed a substantial amount of success. They won the Epic Prime League Season 1 where they beat Virtus.Pro 3:0 in the Grand Finals. With VP.Prodigy, eine also registered top 3 finishes at ESL One Birmingham 2020-Online and WePlay! Pushka League S1: Division 1. eine was benched by VP.Prodigy in the recently concluded OGA Dota Pit S3. He has now been picked up by Gambit Esports where he will look to deliver some solid performances.
Gambit Esports' Final Roster:
- Anton "yy" Shkredov
- Artem "Lorenof" Melnik
- Andrey "meLes" Romanov
- Danial "XSvamp1Re" Alibaev
- Albert "eine" Garaev
gpk and dream have been moved to the inactive status.Although nothing has been communicated regarding their future teams, it can be speculated that gpk might be replacing fn at VP.Prodigy as he was called to stand-in for the team at OGA Dota Pit S3.
Gambit Esports had some really talented individuals in their team prior to this roster change. While fng and Shachlo left the team earlier, gpk and dream were still there. Gambit Esports has now picked up very young players to finalize its roster and it will be interesting to see how they pan out as a team.
