Gambit Gaming will be using Kristoffer "P1noy" Albao Lund Pedersen as their AD Carry for their upcoming EU LCS Spring Promotion match due to the two games remaining on Konstantinos "FORG1VEN" Tzortziou's ban.

After Gambit lost FORG1VEN, they were forced to scramble for a replacement during the end of the split and ended up using Moopz. The team closed out the season by losing two games in a row and finishing in eighth place with a 7-11 record. They are now forced to fight for their place in the EU LCS.

Gambit's position on the move that "it is better to commit to a practice with a single player instead of splitting the practice time between the two of them" and that they want to do whatever is necessary to remain keep their spot in the EU LCS.

Their promotion match is against mousesports on Saturday, Sept. 5 at 1 p.m. EST.
