Astralis bench karrigan
Astralis have benched in-game leader Finn "karrigan" Andersen and will be using 16-year-old Anton "NoTaN1dgl" Pedersen in their upcoming matches, the organization revealed on their website.
Ever since their addition of Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye, the Danes have been unable to impress at the events they've attended, including ECS Season 1 Finals, ELEAGUE Season 1 and SL i-League StarSeries Season 2 Finals.
Most recently, they failed to make it past the group stage at ESL One New York, where they only won one out of four matches, and to quarter-finals at WESG Europe & CIS Regional Finals following a narrow loss to GODSENT in relegation matches.
karrigan will sit on Astralis' bench in the foreseeable future
Shortly after Astralis returned from Kiev, the organization announced that Finn "karrigan" Andersen has been benched by coach Danny "zonic" Sørensen. 16-year-old Anton "notaN" Pedersen will step into the team to fill the gap in their upcoming matches in ESL Pro League Season 4. Nicolai "device" Reedtz also revealed that the addition of notaN is temporary.
Astralis now have:
Finn "karrigan" Andersen (bench)
Danny "zonic" Sørensen (coach)
