Gambit Esports (formerly known as Gambit Gaming) is a Russian esports organization based in the United Kingdom [1] known primarily for its presence in League of Legends. They initially competed in the EU LCS and racked up several IEM titles in 2013 and 2014, before eventually leaving the EU LCS at the end of 2015.

History[edit]

In 2016, Gambit Esports joined the LCL as we know it today, acquiring the team slot of Team Difference. Since then, they've become a two-time champion and two-time runner up, attending Worlds 2 times. The team failed to qualified for Worlds 2020, but were temporarily invited as the replacement for Unicorns of Love, in case they were unable to attend due to visa issues.

On the 22nd of April in 2021, Gambit announced that they would be leaving League of Legends after competing for a total of 8 years. [2]
