Gambit Gaming has declared on their site the marking of veteran Danylo “Zeus” Teslenko from Natus Vincere. Zeus has entered into an agreement with Gambit legitimate until the end of 2017 after the organization hit an arrangement with Natus Vincere for the 29-year-old’s exchange.
In the year 2009, Zeus himself created Natus Vincere with four other dominating Ukranian players. The 29-year-old have had lots of achievements in the past with the Ukrainian side Na`Vi, including DreamHack Masters Malmo and MLG Columbus where they stood 2nd.
The Ukrainian veteran had been surveying his choices in the wake of being let well enough alone for Na`Vi’s beginning lineup after the entry of Aleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev.
Zeus assumes the control as Gambit’s new chief and in-game leader. He will replace Dmitry “hooch” Bogdanov, who was discharged toward the begin of the month in after being a part of the team for over ten months.

On signing Zeus, Gambit Gaming’s CEO Konstantin “Groove,10” Pikiner released an official statement, “I’ve known Daniil closely for more than ten years. In 2007 and 2008 we worked together in Virtus.pro. Daniil is someone who never gets complacent with his achievements – victories for him stand above all. He loves competing and commits himself to it completely, does his best to achieve results. I am glad to welcome a player of his calibre to Gambit Esports!”.
Zeus shared the fact that he formed Na’Vi while walking down the street with Edward in the year 2009 and as he continues. “Hello, guys! It’s time to clarify my situation and provide an official statement that many of you have been waiting for.
I remember walking down a street with Edward in 2009 and coming up with a name for our new team… We had just finished watching “Avatar,” a movie that told a story about a different tribe called Na’Vi. That’s how it all began…
Today everyone knows Natus Vincere as one of the most famous, successful and serious Esports organizations. For me Na’Vi was like home, I took part in establishing it, I was proud of it. I spent six years doing all I can to make it the way it is right now, an organization that you love!
Obviously, it is difficult for many, including myself, that we part ways, but NA’VI will always be a part of me, and I will remain a part of its history… I would like to wish these guys to move only forward towards their goals and represent “Born to Win” name with pride.
I am beginning a new path since I won’t let go of my goals! I will share this way with Gambit Esports team!!! I know that many of my fans, acquaintances and friends were worried about me and my future career. Therefore I hope that they will approve of my choice and will continue sincerely supporting me, this time as a part of a new roster! I have a lot of responsibilities and duties with my new team. Perhaps it won’t be easy at first, but it never stopped me from new beginnings, and I had a lot of them! I promise to invest all my efforts, patience, and experience to lead my new teammates and organization to success!!! Believe in us and root for Gambit Esports, and we won’t let you down!
Love you all,
Yours truly, Daniil Zeus.”
