The core of Gambit Gaming originates all the way back to their time on Team Empire, knocking out a dominant SK Gaming at IEM Kiev. The group was quickly recruited by the Moscow 5 organization and emerged as an unstoppable force for all of Season 2 with innovative strategies executed on the biggest stages. They went into the World Championships as a heavy favorite only to be upset by eventual winners, the Taipei Assassins.
A new sponsorship from Gambit Gaming kicked off the Russians' start to the Season 3 split. In the EU LCS, the ongoing rivalries between them, Fnatic, and Evil Geniuses raged on throughout the year, but thanks to a pivotal boot camp, a resurgent Gambit edged out EG for Europe's final spot into the Season 3 World Championships. Their hot streak continued all the way until meeting face-to-face with NaJin Black Sword in the quarterfinals where Gambit was sent home. Now, former teammate EDward has rejoined with the team as they now appear to be one of the most formidable squads in 2014.
