Astralis, +Staehr
f0rsakeN | 
Australia NoLeS 
I've said it from day 1 and everytime Sprout play I keep standing by this, Astralis will have fucked up if they pass on one of the most promising young aggressive rifle talents in Danish CS. In an international lineup this 18 year old kid is still doing some major damage, making space and demonstrating so much potential. Much needed for a team like Astralis that is getting long in the tooth and needs some reinvigorating talent with some longevity, especially if they're truly reinstating dev1ce back into this retirement home of a roster. If there's a perfect time to make a move like +Staehr now is it with k0nfig's career in the team on the rocks, and with a final desperation move in the books with a +dev1ce resigning. Fuck splashing so much cash on overpriced and unstable older players that can disappear within months and never reconstitute to prime form. If this org is that irresponsible to shell out such big bucks do it on new talent that can stay in the game for a bit, there are enough veterans to keep them in check and help them develop in the team On another note, refrezh also looks very competent in the IGL seat for such a newcomer to the role and younger IGL overall. TL;DR: perfect time to +Staehr -k0nfig unless Astralis org morons (which they are)

Topics are hidden when running Sport mode.
also, -refrezh hasn't left Heroic looking too great but for both parties it was probably for the better. Both Heroic and refrezh were stagnating heavily in that roster and it had been given enough time to break their glass ceiling: unfortunately no such breakthrough materialised through the lukewarm end to that roster. Still too early to call but with time I can see refrezh being a staple IGL of the Danish scene, given how satisfactory he's been in the germinal phase of this stripling Sprout roster

I can’t figure this team out. For the longest time, people were saying they couldn’t go tend for titles because their lack of an impact AWPer. Fast forward to EPL, Cadian drops good numbers, and they can’t put the pieces together. To contextualize it in their game against Navi with the tech issues, they never played the same after the break. More and more I want to pin their ceiling to some mentality that they haven’t been able to break since LAN came back.

They just don't have the individual firepower in an era where individual firepower is king. No team is rising to the top of the crop with just sheer tactics, it's the era of superteams like FaZe, G2, Vitality, NaVi etc. Only stavn is really carrying the torch on that front for Heroic, they tried with jabbi but he hasn't risen to the occasion or even shown the same form he had with HooXi, not yet. They need a blameF (again)

Great acquisition for Astralis, maybe not the best career move for Staeher. Seeing how Astralis treat their talent is cause for concern, and maybe he’d rather be on a top 20 team consistently than find himself in contract prison on the bench.

I agree but at the now when k0nfig's career is in jeopardy because of some fistfight in Malta now's a good chance to have a proper full-time shot on the main roster. Especially if dev1ce is really making his return then a Staehr addition could really cement a very strong roster, with a good mix of firepower, tactics, experience, and youth

If k0nfig is a nonstarter going forward, this could benefit both parties. The trouble of it is Astralis has never shown willingness to buy out players and another team (maybe TSM!) could get him before Astralis even has a chance Expect academy promotions before a move like this

I disagree with -k0nfig. He's the second best player in this team. At this point I'm starting to question gla1ve's calling. Not to mention Xyp9x who is the definition of average. And yes, I know they are role pieces, but so is k0nfig, and replacing him with Staehr isn't really a 1 for 1 replacement.
2022-10-04 12:29
3 replies
The fact that he's the 2nd best player on the team doesn't say a whole lot especially because he hasn't seen any lingering consistency for years now and it's quite undeniable at this point that it's a serious problem for the team especially with just how frequently his inconsistency issues pop up on any map other than Ancient Xyp9x is not a solid player either anymore (though he's markedly improved after Astralis did some role changes/reallocations), sure. But since k0nfig is the one already on the chopping block, and Xyp9x has history with dev1ce who he's obviously succeeded well with, I think it's more reasonable and convenient to give him a little more time instead gla1ve I mostly agree with, he's not necessarily a great caller he was more pivotal for the innovation he brought to the tactical side of CS but now that the meta has entirely caught up and lapped what he's done his impact on the team is questionable now. That said, it's hard to think of a solid and available replacement for him at the moment. + same deal with Xyp9x, a former strong relationship and history with dev1ce, should wait to see how that roster pans out first before giving gla1ve the boot.

The way you’ve described Astralis here makes their situation seem like hell It feels as though they can’t win with this roster, but there aren’t realistic moves that could fix it Maybe the device acquisition could change things, but that’s probably still months off in the horizon
2022-10-04 12:43

I can for sure see the dev1ce move doing very good things for the roster if k0nfig does come back. blameF singlehandedly pulled this team into the top 5 for some time, with another more consistent carry the team can compete with the best. Just seeing how much a -junior +hallzerk change or -mantuu +degster did for CoL and OG is good enough evidence that in 2022 a single key roster move can really put everything back in order. It's just that it took millions and years of getting shit on by tier 1-2 teams to put some shadow of a competent team back together

after watch VOD, im disagree with -konfig 1. bc konfig only out for short period, and after that staehr can only be moved to talent roster, which bad choice for staehr 2. structure-wise, he don't fit to konfig position and role, and Astralis already struggle to solve structural problem and staehr addition only make it worse 3. staehr profile is like Altekz profile imo, so staehr addition will only make talent roster unhappy with Astralis as org, which is worse for Astralis if their own employee didn't trust the company, much worse than unhappy csgo community imo if it -xyp or -glaive, decent suggestion to +staehr

A few things > K0nfig will only be out for a while After the fighting incident in Malta, Astralis might label him a reputational risk and bench him. This isn’t as certain as you might think. > Staehr wouldn’t fit, take time to integrate So would any replacement if K0nfig is pressured out. As an aggressive rifler, it’s hard to think they couldn’t make Staehr work, especially if Glaive is even a fraction of the IGL he once was > Astralis Talent players will be unhappy Point blank, I don’t think Astralis cares.

if -konfig is real thing and Astralis must find another rifler, then +staehr is a good choice glaive can take konfig's role and solve their structural problem but, i still think Altekz is better choice (similar profile player) bc i watch Altekz regularly and not staehr, so clear bias here

I don't think so. When Xyp plays his roles. He is usually on point. He has had a boost in performance after IEM Dallas. I do agree that xyp9x appears epitome of Sunk cost fallacy that is because BlameF initially had like 90% of xyp9x role. post Dallas I see xyp plan about 40% of his old roles as BlameF is their active choice for lurk. So far what I feel is both Blame and Xyp approach to passive format has not synced up which is why when they are last 2 people standing it doesnt usually works out. It needs to be either Xyp and someone else or BlameF and someone else. He still wins his clutches fairly. Not as high as 2016-19 still fairly consistently but his position isnt putting him in clutches as many times and when it does its either they are battling time or he has to set up the bomb so he can't position himself to play clutch. so weird scenarios that kind of is putting him in a disadvantages position. If rumors are true and K0nfig leaves and BlameF choose to leave with K0nfig. We might see a resurrection of Xyp9x in Lurk. But thats a big if.

It depends. Like rather than bring in names that are big, if they look into what positions are remaining players strong at and then find player for missing positions. They would be back in top in 6-8 months. Something that happened with Kjaerbye and Magisk. Kjaerbye and Dupreeh both wanted to play entry. So when Kjaerbye left and Dupreeh perfectly slotted into entry. Talks were of bring in K0nfig who was the best Danish Rifler at the time but brought in Magisk who played the roles they need rather than having conflicting roles. took them about 4 months to get back on top. Ofc, Zonic played a huge role in doing this and If Trace, understands their role problems and finds the right players to fill in. I think they can be back in 6-8 months after both of them leave.

Forget splashing money on an acquisition, they had viable choices on their ACADEMY side and passed them up consistently. Zyphon was a playoffs player at Antwerp btw, unlike Astralis. Jesus.

I can sort of understand letting Zyphon go because 1) He was AWPing at the time (not 100% sure about this) and they had device on the main roster 2) according to some, he was really toxic and wanted to leave the team himself but fessor is a great rifler and could have replaced either xyp or konfig.. If he was in the place of MistR rn astralis could have arguably looked better

Astralis might have listed MistR as their sub fully expecting it would never come into play. The roster locks weeks ahead of the k0nfig incident have probably caught them off guard in a big way. If Astralis had their choice between Fessor and MistR in hindsight, I’d bet they take Fessor every time.

2022-10-05 19:22
konfig should stay on the team. Despite inconsistency, he has huge impact, can still play like a top20 player, and is their 2nd best player. He fucked up with that fight but hopefully he grows from this and comes back with his shit together. Which roles does Staehr play ? Sorry I didn't watch Sprout :D Could he fit as a replacement for xyp? xyp is still valuable in many situations, but with farlig being passive as well not much gets done. If device comes in and plays with agression I can see xyp hang around for a while. blamef konfig glaive device xyp / staehr or is this replacement stupid ?
2022-10-05 19:25
1 reply
Staehr's an aggressive star rifler. He can open rounds and make space like a motherfucker So not a good Xyp replacement, he's the best rifler to replace k0nfig out of absolutely anyone. Maybe roeJ makes sense as well but roeJ has a team and roeJ is much older/doesn't have the same potential
