There are many legendary players in the Dota 2 CIS scene. Although most of them play core roles, there are also plenty of support players, such as Artsiom “fng” Barshak. This player was a part of Gambit Esports for some time now, playing a major role in the team and winning a number of events.
Nevertheless, after spending some time with Gambit, fng’s contract came to an end. As a result, he and the organization have decided to part ways.
Gambit & COVID-19
Gambit Esports was one of the most promising teams in Dota 2. However, the team failed to keep up with the rest due to COVID-19. As you know, the virus completely changed the competitive Dota 2 scene, which had a massive effect on just about everything. Unfortunately, some of the smaller organizations couldn’t adapt to the change, which is why they’ve released their Dota 2 rosters.
Due to the fact that Gambit didn’t take part in most events, fng decided to team up with Alliance. He’s been playing as a stand-in for the Swedish powerhouse for some time now and even took part in two grand finals. However, no one from the team has officially confirmed that fng was a part of it. What’s interesting is that many people have tried asking Alliance’s players this question, but they were never answered.
It will be interesting to see what will happen with the talented CIS player. Currently, he is once again helping Alliance in the OMEGA League Europe Immortal division. The EU squad is battling for survival in the lower bracket of the event.
