Nothing can save Astralis now. CIS era has come and it is stronger than any other era.
maybe bring back estag for much cheaper price? but tbh i dont think they are making roster changes till at least some LAN tournaments
Clear bait if not Astralis have lost their minds.
If Astralis are making changes, they either need to utilise Bubzkji or bench him. Yes, it's Bubzkji's choice but leaving the kid to rot on the bench is not Bubzkji's choice.
I like xypnix a lot but he's been underperforming after his break every match 😥😥
Mby he just meant that the end of one tournament is always opportunity to get a new and fresh approach in the next one?
When i read this it always reminds me of one of the best poems of all time.
H. Hesse Stufen
"Like every blossom wilts, and youth must yield
to age, so every stage of life must flower,
Like every wisdom, every virtue blooms
in its own time, and cannot last forever.
Our heart must be prepared at every call
of life, to bid farewell and start anew,
To give ourselves with valiance and no grief
to other, novel bonds out in the world.
And every new beginning holds a spell
that will protect us and will help us live.
We are to stride with joy through the expanses,
not hook our hearts to each place like a home
The cosmic spirit does not limit, shackle,
yet, stage by stage, it seeks to lift, expand us.
We're barely settled cosy in life's circle
and feel familiarised, when languor looms.
Only those prepared to leave and travel
just might escape the numbing habitudes.
Maybe the hour of our death will send,
yet, reborn, us to explore new spaces,
Because life's call to us will never end...
Go on then, heart, go bid farewell and heal!"
With that tweet I think gla1ve is the one to leave if there's going to be a change. His 1st child is on its way and I can definitely understand wanting to focus on his new family if that is the case.
It would have been cool to see more of the:
Device, Dupreeh, Magisk, bubzkji and es3tag lineup. They only got to compete in one tourney which was ESL one Cologne where they beat Vitality and Fnatic very convincingly but lost to NIP in the QF.
Bubzkji would be good in glaives position because he likes to go aggressive so often, and es3tag is just a pure upgrade from xyp9x, but maybe cloud9 have locked him in contract hell with the shitshow of an org.
Valorant or he is going to retire
Niko joins astralis. replaces device as main awper.
Gla1ve leaves astralis. nik otakes over IGL duty and holds awp duty.
niko leaves for NAVI
basically -xyp9x +bubzkji.
maybe he means it's gonna be the end of his non-dad days and now his dad days are gonna begin soon
Gambit will do that after tomorrow lmai. Navi kicked themselves out of top 1 by keeping flamie
Oof, that's a bit too rough?
I believe astralis play their own game and this is beyond our understanding
Honestly they should all retire at the same time to screw over the org thats screwed them lol play for one last major and dip if you dont win
It makes the most sense that Dupreeh leaves for Bubzki role wise. And Dupreeh is 28.
But it's probably Xyp or Glaive himself actually leaving. Just based off their long breaks.
Or the entire team is being sold. Who the fuck knows with Astralis. We know the possibility was explored with C9 so it's certainly possible.
Why the hell would there need to be a change now? In the current CS scene it's impossible for one team to win every tournament. Unless there are some massive internal problems within the team there should be no change at least until after the major.
end=end of this tourney for astralis IMO
What if gla1ve is just baiting. But I sense something is going on though.
Why are you hoping it's a bait?
they need an aggressive and impactful awper and not a guy who holds passive angles the whole match.
they gonna leave Astralis
Astralis needs 6 rooster, all of their players are too old and bored they just starting to play worse all together and at some moment Astralis may completely disappear without a new blood
I had swift contact with gla1ve today and he confirmed astralis are disbanding
eliminated from tournament = end
next tournament = new beginning
just some pr talk
-glaive, bubzkji starting line up. xyp9x taking over igl
I hope he leaved to join cloud 9!!
-gla1ve (dude is going to be a father, time to set priorities straight
You guys are thinking too hard about this
