Guys it’s obviously -Gla1ve +es3tag and magisk to IGL. Gla1ve has hinted at it, Gla1ves form has really gone down recently and he’s just had a kid. Xyp9x won’t leave unless someone’s bought him out and nobodies going to do that isn’t he current market

Device said in an interview that their problem is not related with the IGL. Its more about Players not hitting their shots. Removing Gla1ve would not be very wise. And Magisk as an IGL wasn't that good either. hltv.org/news/31546/device-it-is-to-be-e..

ikr the only problem they do have its they arent on form atm, i can see esetag join but not right now as he is on contract still and would be for xyp probably not any other player

if they get es3tag back then they sold him and paid a 10th of the price to buy him back so they would totally buy him back. massive profit

Probably not, the plan is to have Device and Xyp retire. Not something that Astralis wanted but it was not there choice. Replace them with Bubz, Es3tag or even Cajunb Finally you modify over time Magisk to become IGL and evantually have Gla1ve step down and finally use that Astralis talent roster.

I mean yeah, they have long asked to finally leave the scene and it would make sence to have them leave now instead of forcing them to play for a few more months until the contracts expire

2021-04-22 20:41
i think plan is not for device to retire but to step down for a bit and return once he can. Xyp probably stepping down, dupreeh tired probably. We'll see Magisk gla1ve for sure in.

It's possible he is only aiming to take a break but then you wouldn't frame it as "Leaving". It's more asumptions that Astralis wouldn't kick there best player and that he has for long made it clear he wanted a break and was tired of having to live in Stockholm and work in Copenhagen
2021-04-22 22:52

But if i am not mistaken, he has not been in copenhagen that much? Sure, during the pro league and other big tournaments he has been in their office but majority of the time he has played from home. I dont understand why would they change xyp to cajun either.

Xyp will most likely be in favor of Es3tag who is also a Support player and it's not like xyp hasn't shown his own desire to leave that could be said about Glaive, Device and Xyp though and even if Astralis Desperately try to hold on to them, the contracts will expire soon anyway

How cajun work with that mix then. I thought estag could have played awp but is it cajun doing that then or dup? It is just speculation but interested to hear your view.

Originally i believe the idea was to bring Zyphon from the Astralis Talent roster but he completely left and wants nothing to do with the org. I haven't seen Cajun as an awper like ever so i don't think he will be awping but instead i think it will be dupreeh until they find a new player. But Astralis will probably be a team like the new G2 where they wont buy they awp all the time even if they can. I guess they could buy a danish awper, i can think of Farlig though he is locked to FPX. I think Glaive will focus on Magisk so he can feel comfortable in his role. And evantually they will replace glaive with a main awper. Possibly Farlig, Acor or some upcomming talent.

Yeah could be so. Everyone just feel like a downgrade after device. I think cajun has played secondary awp quite a lot back in the days.

Let's be honest the only players that are better then Device is ZywOo and S1mple + maybe some of that upcomming CIS talent like Sh1ro but that's it Not a lot of danish players in that mix. I mean honestly if they could get Cadian that would solve like everything but eh yeah how about no, never happening.

He's 25 but he's on TOP level for many many years which is really consuming, specially if you're as regular as him.

Multiple reasons 1. He is suffering from stress and a stress related illness pressuring himself to keep playing is bad for his health 2. Corona virus clearly destroyed the teams motivation and all around mentality. 3. What does he have to gain if he stays? He has won everything possible to win except the HLTV top 1, that's it. He is the most successful player to ever touch the game and played on the GOAT team. He has won every notable trophy and probably MVP'ed in every notable event. 4. The Astralis org is not good and way to much about money. Relations could have soured. 5. if Device leaves now he wont pull a pronax and ruin his career. Instead he would become a full-time streamer.

1 - he have that illness for years he already know how to adapt and what to do when that happens 2- not really 3- that logic is pretty stupid thats like comparing any sport player that achives the same 4 - that is the only good point tbh , although they can try to change org 5 - sure

1. Even if he had it for years that doesn't change the fact it's a problem. 2. This is something Dupreeh and Glaive said 3. Not really, motivation is what hungers us all. All the pro players keep telling us why a team like Gambit is so good. The motivation to put in the hours of practice. The CIS teams in general put in extreme hours. If you have no goal or need outside money why would it hunger him to keep going. What we heard from other pros is that the Astralis players are just not practicing enough of what's to be expected. If i had to add another point it would probably be the breaking of the core. Xyp is pretty much guaranteed to be leaving but rumors are that Glaive will follow once the new team is fit in to place. Dupreeh is also quite old so who knows when he will leave.

2021-04-22 20:44
gla1ve has to stay because yea he was never the aim player (and that's getting even worse) but you can't trade his strats and decision making for anything else -xyp +es3tag (the most logical change) and MAYBE -magisk +k0nfig and let bubzjki go ffs.. they're ruining his career at this point
