Tombha described in his Twitlonger how he worked to get funding for a project called Team Gigantti that brought Rest in Pyjamas under an organization's banner. With Gigantti's support, the Finnish squad won Contenders Season One Europe in 2017.
After most of the team's players left for the Overwatch League, the roster was rebuilt for Contenders Season 1 Europe 2018. They finished second in Season 1, in the top four in Season 2 and took home the title in Season 3. Tombha was with the team for that entire time.
Despite departing from Team Gigantti, Tombha is not leaving the esports industry as a whole. He says his future will be revealed soon. Team Gigantti will unveil their new manager next week, according to Tombha.
Team Gigantti should have a guaranteed place in Contenders Season 1 Europe 2019 following their Season 3 title.
