Weldon Green has signed on as Counter Logic Gaming's new head coach, the organization announced on Thursday.

Denis "seized" Kostin is no longer under contract with Gambit Esports, the organization announced on Thursday.

The 24-year-old had been on Gambit's transfer list since May, merely three months after being enlisted to replace Bektiyar "fitch" Bahytov.
