Richard Lewis sits down to discuss ESL Pro League Season 13. After a whirlwind showing, Astralis is no longer top dog, as NAVI sits at the number one spot. However, Lewis believes that it’s Gambit who are the true heirs to the CSGO throne.

With Gambit’s result over Astralis, Lewis dubs it as “simply phenomenal.” Their performance not only shows the depth and strength of the team itself, but also their talent: “I think they’ve got the best competitive map pool right now out of any team,” he says.

While nothing lasts forever, Lewis still states that Astralis is legendary, full of hall of fame talents and each member is still unbelievably talented.

When it comes down to it, though, Gambit proved themselves against the iconic roster in unbelievable fashion. Calling their performance insane, he states that while the likes of Dmitry ‘sh1ro’ Sokolov gets the most of the team’s attention, Sergey ‘Ax1LE’ Rykhtorov came out of their showing against the likes of dev1ce with almost double the kills over two maps. The whole team is stacked in talent, with each being interchangeable on who can have the most impact on a game.

While rankings aren’t everything, the proof is in the pudding with the incredible teams that Gambit has taken down. The sky is undoubtedly the limit for the CIS going forward.
