As the offseason develops, Gambit Gaming has decided to terminate their contract with Head Coach  Jordan “Leviathan” Thwaites, citing a lack of commitment and focusing more on social media presence instead of the team.


Statement from Dmitry “Moo” Sukhanov, Team Manager:

Today we bid farewell to our Head Coach, who was in charge of our team throughout an entire Spring split. Our decision was based on our results at IEM Katowice, regular part of the season and the playoffs, as well as individual conversations with our players. We believe that Jordan had a successful start as a Head Coach of our team, but in the past couple of months he lost his interest and was dedicating more and more time to his image in social networks, instead of working with our team. Our players are as professional as one can get, therefore they require the same level of commitment from their support staff. We want our coach to be not only sociable and capable of resolving conflicts – tasks Jordan had coped with well, but also be a self-motivated specialist with organizational capabilities, extensive LoL game knowledge and an ability to set his priorities straight.

With the Summer Split starting in May, Gambit has just over a month to search for a Head Coach and familiarize them with the team.
