Today, FlipSid3 Tactics and Gambit have struck a deal over the buyout of Jan “WayLander” Rahkonen’s contract. FlipSid3 Tactics have acquired Rahkonen’s contract from Gambit, who have released WayLander of his contractual responsibilities in favor of FlipSid3 Tactics.

GAMBIT also moves forward to the Major with their recently acquired 5th, Ivan “spaze” Obrezhan, and will participate in ELEAGUE as well later this month.

A special thank you as well to Gambit for allowing us to practice and compete full time with WayLander throughout the negotiation process.” – Dana ‘wuvs’ Kawar – COO FlipSid3 Tactics
“We are happy to finalize this deal with FlipSid3 Tactics, since wayLander was their first choice and it was Jan’s first priority to become a part of this team as well. We are pleased with the fact that both Gambit and FlipSid3 have successfully integrated spaze and wayLander respectively and will participate in two premier tournaments, ELEAGUE and ESL One Cologne Major, in the nearest future.” – Konstantin “groove” Pikiner, CEO Gambit eSports
FlipSid3 Tactics and Gambit are glad to announce this deal, and further renew their commitment to the progress of eSports and their respective players.
