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:

Denmark Nicolai "device" Reedtz
Denmark Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen
Denmark Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth
Denmark Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye
Denmark Anton "notaN" Pedersen (stand-in) 

Denmark Finn "karrigan" Andersen (bench)

Denmark Danny "zonic" Sørensen (coach)

lol, xyp9x is a very good support player lol
2016-10-11 20:22
You must feel really stupid now that a 16 year old nonamer was better than xyp9x across 2 maps despite the fact that notan WAS THE ONE PLAYING SUPPORT When will the "xyp9x is a good player" -meme end?

because xyp9x never plays anything but support and doesn't feel comfortable playing the karrigan role
2016-10-12 04:06
No, it's actually because xyp9x is bad. I know it's hard to accept reality
2016-10-12 06:08
are you fucking stupid? xyp9x is one of the best supports, top 3 atleast.
2016-10-12 04:06
16 year old nonamer must be top 2 support then :)
2016-10-12 06:07
Because Xyp9x is trying to call and isn't comfortable? And the Nonamer only has done frags, his strategies, info plays, decision making and etc isn't as good as Xyp9x.
2016-10-12 06:54
Source that xyp9x is calling
2016-10-12 07:01
Device and Dupreeh themselves never call and don't listen to Karrigan sometimes. Pro League doesn't allow Coaches. Kjaerbye as a caller? Ehh. Xyp9x is the support player, the key to strategies(Smokes and nades), info and etc), he's the smartest player on the team. If they weren't running any strats, they wouldn't need a support(Nonamer). Also, tsm comms reveal that Dupreeh and Device don't call, only Karrigan and mid round Xyp9x.
2016-10-12 08:38
I'm seeing a lot of excuses for why xyp9x is so incredibly bad lol I also don't see evidence of him calling The truth is that a 16 year old nonamer was better than xyp9x even as support
2016-10-12 09:21
the NoNamer is better at fragging(2 matches only), but who's to know what he did for support(Info, comms, strats, nades, decision maing)? Listen to tsm comms, Xyp9x calls mid round, thats evidence.
2016-10-12 12:39
He was playing support. Always dropping and playing with deagle. In the second round notan dropped scout for device and played no armour usp
2016-10-12 12:46
wow, dropping weapons and getting frags, so much for support.

Talking about the vast danish talent pool, but judging this kid before seeing him play with the team seems kinda ironic to me. Also they needed a player who hasn't played in any esea league this season. Just give this kid a chance..

Did you not read the article..? This boy is only a temporary replacement until they find someone else to fully replace Karrigan. They only picked notaN because he has not participated in any ESEA matches/leagues. Which is a rule that every team must follow in the ESEA.
2016-10-11 17:22
They are risking their qualification, they should at least assure they are qualified before making stupid changes

You mean karringan is better than nonamer? its a REALLY bad choice to get notan... theres sooo many talented players than notan and they pick him...

It doesnt matter, they're practically out already.

Not really. It is still possible, just unlikely.
2016-10-11 18:48
Yeah really. I dont even consider it being a possibility for nip, mouz, fnatic and faze to fall behind astralis given their low opponents in left matches. Prolly na'vi, envy and dig will also end ahead of astralis.
2016-10-11 18:52

6 teams will qualify for the lan finals. So it's definitely possible.
2016-10-11 19:16
Has there been a change to this? Pretty sure it was 4. But even if its 6, astralis' chances are veeery slim.
2016-10-11 19:29
#499
Xyp9x | 
Iceland Fridd 
It is 6. Because there are more teams this season than there were in season 3.
2016-10-11 20:05
Qualification for what?
2016-10-11 18:11
They aren't out yet, they can get up to 15 wins
2016-10-11 18:13
So? Nip, mouz, faze, dig, fnatic, envy and na'vi will probably get more. Looking at the matches left; Nip, mouz, fnatic and faze are almost guaranteed having more than 15. Either envy or navi will do the same depending how they play eachother.
2016-10-11 18:46
They have almost no chance to qualify. Be real ffs. They have to win 4 out of 4 maps against g2 and mouz, Na'Vi have to lose 3 maps, NV have to beat dignitas twice and VP have to lose one map.
2016-10-11 20:27
"Almost no chance", and yet they did have a chance if they had got up to 15 wins as I said. Now you have 3 teams fighting to get 15 wins, EnVy, dig, VP. You almost had 4 teams in the same position, but NaVi messed up on their last matches and are now almost out. "be real" - Now who wasn't being real?
2016-10-13 01:11
They would never win 4 put 4 maps against g2 and mouz and there's no way NV would ever beat Dig 2-0. You're still the one who's deluded. Mathematical chances hardly ever apply in sports.
2016-10-13 06:03
Also they said that the new guy is eligible for pro league season 4, but why would they even care, they're already out of finals.
2016-10-11 18:10
I don't think that anybody could ever take this crown from the fnatic/godsent guys.

2016-10-11 16:44
Our team recently split - hes pretty good. - if he can evolve & keep up, he can be dangerous (Taken in mind of his age)
2016-10-11 16:45
Hope he performs good and get picked up by another team when Astralis find someone instead of him (Cause i doubt they are actually gonna stick with him)

2016-10-11 16:42
He probably was 12 when the pic was taken, although being 12, having a HLTV page and playing for Astralis is quite the achievement.
2016-10-11 16:43
it was taken a couple of weeks ago at powerlan
2016-10-11 16:44
Oh wow lol But still, what I said earlier is still a point
2016-10-11 16:44
He was 16(or 15) at the time. The picture was taken this year at Power Lan
2016-10-11 16:45
He is 16, 12-16 no difference
2016-10-11 16:43
Obviously no difference... you know twistzz on tsm is 16 right? He's easily the best player on the team and maybe best Canadian player.
2016-10-11 16:45
well my point was that he is 16, and look like 12, cuz most kids look the same between 12-16 when it comes too ''geeks''
2016-10-11 16:48
Gonna miss Karrigan, but this is probably for the best.. FaZe Karrigan, Dignitias Aizy?
2016-10-11 16:40
actually could happen. Do you think Msl would go to Astralis then?
2016-10-11 16:42
Naah, think they will pick up Gla1ve, if they dont they will lose major spot. The playser with the major spot is; Device Xyp9x Zonic Karrigan Gla1ve So if they kick karrigan, they lose the major spot, unless they pick up Gla1ve.
2016-10-11 16:48
Well ive always thought they would pick up Gla1ve eventually since he can IGL and also is pretty good fragging wise. You might be right in the thing about the Major spot but im not sure. Dupreeh played 2 games for them at the major you have to remember.
2016-10-11 16:50
Ye i know, but he got sick, so Zonic had to be stand-in. The major spots goes to the players who plays in the playoffs. And they played vs VP with Zonic :)
2016-10-11 16:52
okay didnt know that. Then Gla1ve would be the perfect pick up for them. Lets see what happens ;)
2016-10-11 16:53
Switch karrigan for gla1ve, hype from fnatic 2012.
2016-10-11 17:17
They would still have the major spot if they lost Karrigan, since they still have device, xyp9x, and zonic
2016-10-11 19:11
Zonic is the coach. I rlly doubt they want to use him in the major agian, and not a pro player. Unless he is playing it dosent matter if he is the coach or the fucking king of the world.
2016-10-11 19:12
Kan duppe ikke spille til næste major?
2016-10-11 19:13
Jo da? Han blev bare syg i Cologne, så de blev nød til at bruge Zonic som standin. Spillerne der får major spot er dem der kommer i playoff, og da han var indlagt der, er det derfor zonic og ikke Dupreeh der har major spot.
2016-10-11 19:14
Playoff = 1/8 finalerne
2016-10-11 19:15
Hvis dupreeh ikke major spot, kan han da hellere ikke spille i majoren?
2016-10-11 19:17
Med major spot mener jeg; Da Astralis kom ud af grupperne i Cologne, er de et Legends team. Det betyder at de automatisk er med i den næste major og altså ikke behøver spille Minor for at vinde en plads i næste Major. Denne legends status den kan man så miste, hvis man skifter mere end to af de spillere der opnåede den. Det man bla andet så med Fnatic/Godsent. Fnatic opnåede legends med Olof, Dennis, JW, Krimz og Flusha. Men da JW, Krimz og Flusha så skiftede til Godsent, så mistede Fnatic altså deres legends status, og Godsent fik den istedet for. Hjalp det? :p
2016-10-11 19:22
Nope jeg er stået af ved "med major spot mener"
2016-10-11 19:36
Når man er Legends Team som Astralis er, så er det de 5 spillere på holdt som opnåede Legends der automatisk er med til den næste major. Den Legends status følger spillerne og ikke org'en. Så hvis man evt skifter org mellem to Majors, så mister man altså ikke sin Legends status. Der er dog en regl, og det er at man MAX må skifte to spillere ud, så der skal være 3 ud af de 5 spillere der opnåede Legend status på holdet, ellers mister de den. Og da Astralis spillede med; Zonic Device Gla1ve Xyp9x Karrigan Gla1ve er så ude, og Zonic er deres coach. Så hvis de skifter Karrigan ud, og det IKKE er med Gla1ve så mister de deres legends status, og skal altså spille kvalifikation for at vinde en plads i den næste major. Dupreeh er ikke låst og kan sagtens spille for Astralis ved næste Major, men han har ikke Legends Status.
2016-10-11 19:43
- denis, lowel or spidii + karrigan for mouse
2016-10-11 17:08
Yes -denis would be very nice. If this happens niko doesnt have to lead and can concentrate on fragging even more. And karrigan is in fragging better than denis

yeah but you usually get experience in lower level teams, not straight in to the absolute top (even if astralis have been slumping). I guess he is just temporary though

I played with that kid on FACEIT when I had premium like in 7 out of 10 matches on master league, like 2100elo - he only played with premades, had 100~~+-hours in 2 weeks. He's not that good and he was playing from like 10a.m up to 11/12p.m with break for dinner and shit match after match - like holy shit and I still could have close score to this guy on matches when I have 1/2 of his hours and was playing solo. Nah, rip Astralis, but after all they won't pick him anyway.

any player from dignitas and heroic would've been better.
2016-10-11 17:25
Holy hell you're stupid 1. Why would someone from a better team join Astralis? 2. People already in ESEA aren't eligible. Learn to read.
2016-10-11 17:46
Holy hell you're stupid: 1. Astralis are producing much worse results but would still be capable of paying larger salaries 2. Where does it say in the article that players already in ESEA aren't eligible that in this case you'd insult me for being incapable of reading. But it was my bad that I didn't read it that it was only temporary originally since that would lead me to believe that Karrigan is unavailable.
2016-10-11 17:57
Holy hell you're stupid 1. $9000 a month is peanuts compared to missing out on $500k and $1.5 million tournaments (FOUR OF THEM) 2. It's in the 4 sentence long statement. Clearly, you can't read. These aren't real athletes. The salaries are basically minimum wage payment. All the money and prestige is in winning and Astralis are a bunch of complacent losers. It's what happens when you let a bunch of man-children run their own org.

He's a stand in. Obviously have had major internal problems with karrigan and they have had to literally grab someone with no questions asked. This guy will probably play for free as he's in such a great team as Astralis (still a top team in the world) and won't demand anything unlike some like Tenzki or Glave might. It gets Astralis over s short term problem till a full time player is found. Or the problems with karrigan are resolved.
2016-10-11 17:10
a freaking kid? well, we'll see what he can do... good luck.

2016-10-11 17:16
Wasn't Karrigan one of the better players in the last tournament they played? WESG I believe. If he was in-game leading and yet, still played better, shouldn't the solution be to bench someone else or delegate the IGL role?
2016-10-11 17:18
In the last tournament, yes. However, that doesn't make up for his consistently horrible performance overall. In terms of in-game leading, I don't think he's that bad. However, there have been some rumors which say that the other Astralis players ignore his calls and just do whatever they want to.

2016-10-11 18:02
They dont want to realize their problems do not lie with the ingameleder all the time. Even with the best strats in the world, you need people to perform. Between device, dupreeh and Kjaerbye, they have such a high peak level - their lowest level is dogshit. Probably karrigaNs fault, right? RIGHT? :-)

This is such a shit move. karrigan is not the problem neither was cajunb, all their star players are chocking every fucking time on important matches. They are all stuck on roles and are afraid to change something. Xyp9x is stuck in this role while when they played more freely he was hardcarrying them. They just need to stop overlooking for problems while they are all the problem.

lol as if karrigan was the problem. His calls are what make Astralis even fight against same lvl opposition. As soon as they relax they start losing retarded rounds (I'm pretty sure karrigan doesn't say "Hey guys lets go 1 by 1 die to pistols while playing CT 5v2") And they probably need a miracle to avoid their weak minded tilt, so I guess only GOD HUNDEN would be able to be the 5th man.

dupreeh as far as i know gets very emotional in games and sorta "depressed" when things don't go the team's way. some of the astralis players once mentioned that he's definitely the most salty player in the team :) i don't think he'd be the guy to pull the team back up when things are going south. maybe a guy such as k0nfig could be an IGL. he definitely has a very high in-game IQ.

Wut? Kicking out one of the most legendary CSGO players for some nonamer brat who's hardly even old enough to legally play the game. Idiot team.

Shouldn't Astralis be removed from ESL tournament for replacing a player? Let's make a petition.
2016-10-11 21:58
if youre talking about the major they can still play as long as they have 4 of the same players, they cant play with xypn9x unless they get gla1ve or theyll have to play with zonic
2016-10-11 22:08
Astralis is a sinking ship rofl.
2016-10-11 22:15
Who is going to maincall in Astralis, cause their stand-in is notAnIGL apparently
2016-10-11 22:21
It must be so nice to be a pro csgo player, u get benched and u still make a shit ton of money and u can just go on twitter and make a mockery of the whole thing! Im in the wrong business....brb gonna dm for 9287317332798hrs straight and go pro!

2016-10-11 22:35

2016-10-11 22:22

LUL ! i will bet more money against CHOKETRALIS ty 4 ez money !!!!
2016-10-11 23:07
you know you are a really bad team and need changes after you lost to BOTsent :D
2016-10-11 23:07
If you call this kid "talent" I'd be a fucking legend when I was 16, so trash.
2016-10-11 23:13
people need to stop kissing his ass just because he's young. Guarantee you if you find another 16 year old kid with the same amount of hours he would've performed exactly the same.
2016-10-11 23:14
Are people kissing his ass? lmao He's pretty trash. I only envy him for getting a chance as a young player on a pro team.
2016-10-11 23:23
ROFL
2016-10-11 23:29
Finally, tho it might be a bit late now when xyp9x has a slump too. They need someone like gla1ve, konfig or magisk now... or why not cajun again?
2016-10-11 23:37
they tried cajun plenty of times and dignitas look to be in much better shape these days
2016-10-12 02:52
all astralis needs is a mental coach. they are all great cs players but can't deliver at high pressure. vp should be a role model for all the teams swapping players. best way is to get through it together.
2016-10-11 23:58
this! Also dont forget that vp are way more experienced than these kids.
2016-10-12 01:16
Not everyone has the mentality like these guys have and besides VP is going up and down pretty hard... dunno if that's really what you want as a team. Nevertheless I gotta say it's still very impressive.

It's true, they have the potential but almost never play their best once it gets to the finals I'd gladly teach them the ways of the force, lol. IMHO it's a bargain too.. hope they do get someone, someone who is a good fit personality wise and can help them really understand the personal evolution they should aim for and how profound an effect it will have on their whole life, not just career

Sad to see friends making it into pro when there are so many people that have been playing this game or several years with much more skill and smarts.

2016-10-12 04:29
All part of zonic's master plan to join the lineup. Kick Karrigan, deal for Glaive "falls through" resulting in zonic needing to join the roster to keep legend status. I c u
2016-10-12 06:59
people dont realize this kid is just a standin. you are all retarted! justhltvthings

they bench karrigan and pick up some randomer now theyv lost their next major 'legend' status because they played with zonic @ glaive last time to make playoffs. they need to drop this new kid and take in glaive so they still have 3 of the qualifying lineup
2016-10-13 02:32
to make danish cs great again they need device and magiskboy in the same team...
2016-10-13 06:50
i think it'll be for the best tbh
2016-10-15 05:54
what was ASTRALIS think about it? Is that karrigan need some rest or something else??
