Astralis: It's falling apart
Germany Dr_Lurchi 
If they don't want to drop out of the top 5, they need to make changes asap. gla1ve, Xyp9x and dupreeh are not playing as they were in 2018 and device dropped off a bit as well. The biggest problem, however, is that device's health condition causes Astralis to skip a lot of tournaments and I think that will not change anytime soon (ofc that is not his fault). A possible change could be for example -device+mertz -dupreeh +stavn. Ofc device is better than mertz but as I said, Astralis need to attend more tourneys and stavn is a top tier upcoming rifler, one the uprising stars plus dupreeh is Astralis' oldest player.

just no. the risk is just way too high to makes those changes, even if the payoff is big

No roster change needed Astralis was that good partly because their chemistry was perfect any player change would harm them
2019-08-14 13:59
The chemistry is not that good anymore. I heard that there is beef between gla1ve and device as well

Lol SA scrub denying the truth. He said himself that he is not able to travel. Don't you guys have news on SA?
2019-08-14 13:55
Oh he said so himself? Im sorry man i didnt know. That changes EVERYTHING if he said it himself im so happy everyone only tells the complete truth or i would look stupid after paying a bunch of hltv users 32k/month for working as dj for me

Read the reasons!
2019-08-14 13:41
OMEGALUL, with these changes they surely will drop out of top 5 mertz, MERTZ FOR DEVICE
2019-08-14 13:42
But they can attend more tourneys and they still have Magisk and they would have stavn as new star player
2019-08-14 13:43
yes attending more and going out in the 16th place is much better than reaching semis+ attending less lmao
2019-08-14 13:49
Why would they end up with the 16th place? Magisk and stavn would be new stars and dupreeh and Xyp are still fine
2019-08-14 13:50
'A possible change could be for example -device+mertz -dupreeh +stavn. ' 'plus dupreeh is Astralis' oldest player' 'dupreeh and Xyp are still fine' would be great if you wouldn't contradict yourself in your own thread to begin with. device, dupreeh and xyp are the holy trinity of Astralis, having been together for so many years. If a change were to happen soon it would either be -gla1ve or -magisk, unless one of these three mentioned steps down voluntarily.
2019-08-14 14:18
Obviously I meant gla1ve and Xyp9x are still fine. I know they have been together for long but they don't function together as they used to
2019-08-14 14:20
MiBR, 2016/2017's NiP, FaZe, G2 are but a few examples where the last in first out system would be commonly used, wouldn't expect anything less from Astralis

"Skipping tournaments because of device´s health issues,, Come on, you can´t believe this bullshit. Everyone knows that RFRSH made them skip events in favour of Blast.
2019-08-14 13:45
Nono RFRSH didn't do anything, it was device so they are better off with mertz

So they skipped f. e. dreamhack dallas because of his health but still went to blast miami?
2019-08-14 14:03
-device 0/8
2019-08-14 13:47
Read the post. Because of device they skip too many tourney, also they would have stavn as new star (together with magisk)
2019-08-14 13:48
0/8 no one can fit to Astralis better than device, mertz/stavn will never be better than him
2019-08-14 14:04
Device is too passive to really remain at a top team I think
2019-08-14 14:09
No matter, still more relevant than others except Magisk

-device? Are you mental by chance? I hope this is a bait Mertz is good but not that good
2019-08-14 13:53
Yes mertz is not too good but stavn is an upcoming champion and Magisk is still in form so they should be very good

Rfrsh is gone. Astralis back to top1 after the major
2019-08-14 14:12
I'm affraid they drop out of top 5 if they continue like this and 100 T is built with coldzera plus NaVi will be much better with Boombl4
2019-08-14 14:26
Navi yes, can be a top team, but a team with coldzera? Sorry but the dude isn't good anymore. Not good at all
2019-08-14 14:28
Still top 10 in 2018 and two times best player of the year, he will be back on top I think
2019-08-14 14:29
2018 was bs to make the brazillians happy. 2017 was Niko's year and he got robbed. Sorry but I can't imagine a top team with him in it
2019-08-14 14:30
WTF, coldzera was better than NiKo in 2017 and together with FalleN by far the best in 2016
2019-08-14 14:31
dude, on drugs this early in the day?
2019-08-14 14:13
No drugs my friend, it is just reasonable for Astralis to make changes if they want to remain on top ...
2019-08-14 14:18
The only next best danish player would be valde, otherwise i cant really can think about some as talanted that would fit astralis
2019-08-14 14:13
But in the future stavn will be better than valde now
2019-08-14 14:18
So how do you know, his rating right now are still only mediocre...

2019-08-14 14:19
I wouldn't remove gla1ve... When he joined their success began
2019-08-14 14:22
they are praccing like hell rn. they will bounce back in the major. trust me
2019-08-14 14:41
I think they will not win the major, not with their recent form. With stavn they would maybe
2019-08-14 14:44
if they grind again they can. and im pretty sure they are...

Stavn lol Astralis every dingle player is more experienced and better for their team than any danish player you could name
2019-08-14 18:50
no smoke bug = ripstalis
2019-08-14 15:17
Maybe not with mertz and stavn
2019-08-14 17:02
mertz i don't think'vest that
2019-08-14 17:31
+valde -gla1ve
2019-08-14 17:04
gla1ve brought them their success
2019-08-14 17:05
-device hahhahahahahha
2019-08-14 17:10
yeah but + stavn would make up for that
