The Gambit Esports CS: GO roster was formed in January 2016, mostly consisting of former Hellraisers players. The squad soon showed the esports world what they were capable of in their very first major competition, CIS Minor Championship – Colombus 2016 beating Rebels for the first place to win $30K. Then Gambit qualified for the MLG Major Championship Colombus and for DreamHack Masters Malmo 2016.
Through the experiences at these big competitions, Gambit Esports learned more CS strategies from the opposing teams. The CS: GO roster in the past has competed against Flipsid3 Tactics that won them the Adrenaline Cyber League as well as at DreamHack Winter 2016, placing first in both tournaments winning a prize of $50K in each match.
Gambit Esports have recently beaten Navi in the ECS Season 5 qualifiers and defeated Mousesports in IEM Katowice qualifiers. The CSGO team have also participated in the ROG Masters 2017, Eleague Major Boston 2018 and StarLadder & i-League StarSeries Season 4.
