Gambit has announced the signing of 16-year-old Sergey ‘Ax1Le’ Rykhtorov.
The Russian youngster previously played for 5balls and had an unsuccessful tryout with FlipSid3. He has impressed in online CIS tournaments but is yet to qualify for an international LAN.
In a Facebook post, Gambit coach Andrey ‘B1ad3’ Gorodenskiy said: “Ax1Le has a lot of potential as a player and I’m really glad that he will make his first major steps in Gambit. He’s yet to learn a lot, but he will become successful as long as he is exposed to the correct approach to practice.”
Ax1Le is currently participating in a boot camp with his new team. They will be in competitive action this weekend at the CIS closed qualifer for the IEM Katowice 2019 Major.
