The history of Gambit starts in 2013. Less than a week after foundation the club won IEM Global Challenge Katowice.
Later on, Gambit had many triumphs. It was the first CIS team to win a CS:GO Major Championship, having done so at PGL Major Kraków 2017. In 2021, the CS:GO squad won IEM Katowice World Championship, having overcome six top 20 rated teams in the world over the course of the tournament. The organization for the first time in its history became the best in the world in two of the most prestigious rankings by HLTV.org and ESL, and the team held the top spot on hltv.org for 14 weeks.
Gambit Apex won ALGS Winter #4, qualified for ALGS Winter Playoffs and reclaimed the first spot in European leaderboard, and leter finished first at ALGS: 2021 Split 1 Pro League — EMEA. Gambit Valorant became the first CIS champion in the history of the VCT Masters and in the same year 2021 took second place in the first ever VALORANT Championships.
The club began a partnership with Monaco Football Club, in which Fortnite and Dota 2 squads began to play under the combined brand AS Monaco Gambit (ASM.GMB).
The club has always had a minimalist crest, a star in a shield. In the work on the brand, the recognizable image was preserved and the club was given a whole brand identity.
