All around Astralis expected him to stay. They didnt even considering that he might leave. He was offered a contract and he seemed satisfied with it, but when he should sign it, it was the one from North instead. It was a big chock for all people around Astralis. That’s why there was a lot of hate against him in the beginning, because they thought it was respectless not to tell the team, so they had a chance of replacing him. Astralis was first told it an hour or two before he was announced on a press conference for North.
But it was all for the best. I dont think Astralis would reach the same level with him. They needed the kind of player Magisk is. Eventhough Kjaerbye is a very good player, he wasn’t the perfect fit because him and Duphree played too much alike.
