After taking home the trophy in VCT 2021's Masters: Berlin, Gambit attended Champions with their sights set on another title as they set up their second international grand final appearance.

Moving into the VCT 2022 season, Gambit were determined to attend another international event, and were on track to advance from the group stage of EMEA's Stage 1: Challengers before halting activities for a month due to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.
