why would they downgrade from sprout
Even after the RMR, Astralis are unlikely to spend the money on the Danish core of Sprout, especially since they only just got signed
Zyphon (better than blameF, because he won't bait as much)
Actually not a horrible lineup but could also be a big gamble. Device's form is unknown and Sprout core could be considered unproven despite good rmr results. I also think firepower could be stronger.
Like the lineup nonetheless.
device , regali , or go international and pick yp deko or try idk.
glave ( or another firpower addition)
fessor , refrezh
-glaive -stupid calls/older tactics
Farlig - rifle
The only Astralis fix is that we should finally realize that they'll never be the same, not even a decent tier1 team, at given circumstances.
Gla1ve - IGL (must reinvent himself)
Dev1ce - AWP
Stavn - Entry/Aggro rifle
BlameF - Trader (Lurk in some situations)
Xyp9x - Support/Semi Lurk (His old role)
I THINK that roster would achieve something, but wont happen for sure
dont let their 3 months stats blind you, sprout never played against tier 1. Baitf need to be remodeled, device back and they should be fine (replacing xyp is optional)
Staehr is so solid ++++++ but don't think he's going to shitralis
-K0NFIG add fessor
-blame add mistr
-xyp add zyphon
-farling add regali or devve
astralis still didn't sign device and astralis CEO don't care about winning tournaments so it's a waste of time for them to play without device
Just get rid of k0nfig and Farlig. Get device and Staehr.
Put xyp on his former tt roles and move blameF into the second entry; if he is as good rifler as his numbers suggest, he should have no much trouble doing trades and cleaning secondary angles.
May be a coach update would be a good idea too. There are some system failures that are particularly evident on oponents deco/forced rounds.
