Danil "Diamondprox" Reshetnikov was once hailed as the best jungler in the world, and there is no question that he has permanently left his mark on competitive League of Legends. Now, it seems he is moving on from the only home (Moscow 5/Gambit Gaming) he has known in eSports.
Gambit had fallen on difficult times, as the team environment deteriorated and they had to fight for their LCS spot after finishing 8th in the EU LCS Summer Split. However, they were able to defeat mousesports to reclaim that spot, and it seemed the team would continue on. That no longer appears to be the case, as after an important sponsorship deal apparently fell through, it's been reported that Gambit is seeking to sell their LCS spot.
With that in mind, as well as the rest of his teammates leaving the organization, Diamondprox has decided that it is time for him to move on as well. He states that he still wants to be involved in eSports, though his wording makes it unclear as to whether he intends to continue as a player, or in some other capacity. Either way, Diamond's tireless work ethic throughout the years has shown that he can be successful regardless of the challenges he faces.
While he went into great detail about his time with M5/Gambit and what led to this decision, it seems fitting to end with the player's final words in his post:
"Thank you M5/Gambit for supporting me through all this years! Thank you Edward for bringing me into original roster. Thank you all my teammates and subs we ever had for playing with me. Thank you all the people who worked with us. Thank you true fans, who were cheering and bashing on us through those years, but who still kept their trust in us to the end. Biggest thanks to Genja, Darien, Edward and Alex for being something magical that's having flows singly, but being perfect together and to Groove for keeping your words, working your ass off on our team and believing in us untill the very end. I will keep the best memories from this team with me for ever."
