Gambit Announces Babunia as New Jungler
Bartosz “Babunia” Dzikowski will be the new Gambit.CIS jungler, the team announced Thursday. Babunia’s signing comes following the departure of Danil “Diamondprox” Reshetnikov after he left for an undisclosed foreign team following a split long visa issue.
"We are glad to welcome Babunia to our ranks,” said Gambit Head Coach Nikita “saetia” Burlakov. “[Babunia] is without a doubt one of the most experienced and proficient players in Europe and he is extremely motivated to prove it.
“His experience and leadership qualities will definitely allow us to secure a spot in the upper part of the tournament table.”
Babunia comes to Gambit with over two years of EU challenger league experience, as well as a brief time in the Turkish Promotion League (International Wildcard region). In 2014, Babunia played for Denial eSports in the EU Challenger Series where the team finished third in the Spring Playoffs. Following his time with Denial, Babunia played for Tricked eSport, Dark Passage White, and Zone eSports.
Babunia’s most recent experience was with New Blaze, an EU Challenger series team that featured MSI invitee SuperMassive eSports’s AD Carry Nicolaj “Achuu” Ellesgaard. New Blaze lost in the round of 32 to Bottled Water.
Gambit begins the Summer Split LoL Continental League (International Wildcard region) at the end of May. The team roster can be found below.
