Good for them, they can tryout new tactics
G2 should do the same
lol. Watch them play with kristou again instead of dev1ce.
OG and Astralis are solid tier 3 teams
I don't see 'em on the list?
device first official in a year ?
they literally lost 16-1 vs 500 lmfao whats wrong?
will device play? he is listed
i dont mind them trying to play lower tier tournaments to get back in shape, EU/CIS region is a whole lot stacked even in lower echelons and regardless of how big of a name you are , it shouldnt be taboo to try and play these tournaments if you arent cutting it against the big boys at the moment
my only problem is with why do they even bother when the roster isnt finalized and 2 guys are part of the team that wont be there in 2023 ? Whats the use here ?
Copenhagen Flames will be invited to the playoffs and win the whole thing again because they have godfromsky
And what's the problem with that? A team that has been struggling a lot lately is playing some lower tier online tournament to gain some experience on officials with the new lineup and maybe giving device a chance to have a pressure-free start to his 2nd stint with Astralis.
Inb4 device is "too good" for this tournament once again.
if they play with their 2023 roster (or at least with device) it's a good thing. face some good t2 teams, get used to officials, figure something out before playing big events etc
if they play with kristou it's an utter waste of time
Likely using it for a soft start with dev1ce
What's wrong with t3 team playing a t3 tournament?
probably the only trophy where astralis will have a chance to win
also, wouldnt surprise me if they play with 3 stand-ins again and dev0ce chills at home, cause thats what he does while blameF has to carry this dead org every single event since joining the team.
