gla1ve joins Astralis

Astralis have confirmed via their official website the signing of Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander from Heroic.

The 21-year-old will take over from Finn "karrigan" Andersen, who was transferred to FaZe last week, just days after being dropped to the bench.

Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander is no stranger to Astralis, having played for the team as a stand-in at ESL One Cologne due to Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye being ineligible to compete at the event.


gla1ve takes over as Astralis' ingame leader 

The Danish giants managed to break into the top eight at the Major despite being force to field a second substitute, team coach Danny "zonic" Sørensen, for their last two matches as Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen fell ill halfway through the tournament.

With Astralis now having the majority of the roster that reached the playoffs in Cologne, the team will be able to attend the ELEAGUE Major with their new lineup in full, as we explained in an article released after karrigan was removed from the starting roster.  

"Since the ESL One Cologne Major my biggest dream has been to play for Astralis and today that dream has come true," Rossander told Astralis' website.

"It is truly a great honour for me to get the opportunity to play and work with such talented people. Astralis have been through a rough patch lately and I will do my very best to get them back to where they belong.

"I have always known that someday I would go back to being the in-game leader I once was. I am extremely motivated and I feel ready to show people what I am capable of. This last year has been amazing – as have the last couple of months.

"I want to thank the guys from Heroic for being so understanding and such great friends. A special thanks goes to Snappi, who I have been playing with for the last year. Good luck in the future with the Heroic project!"

Astralis will make their first offline appearance with the new roster in two weeks' time as the team will compete in Group C of ELEAGUE, alongside Natus Vincere, ALTERNATE aTTaX and SK Gaming.

The Danish team's roster consists of:

Denmark Nicolai "device" Reedtz
Denmark Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen
Denmark Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth
Denmark Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye
Denmark Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander

Denmark Danny "zonic" Sørensen (coach)

2016-10-24 17:26
that was 2 years ago for 1 event... You are a retard.
2016-10-24 17:31
The fact is such behavior has no place in tier 1 and tier 2 teams so it means Astralis becoming tier 3. Look at freakozoid, he got kicked from tier 2 for less.
2016-10-24 17:33
Its a stupid fucking rule. Gla1ve should have been against it. Maybe threatening to boycott was a bit far, but it isn't like he has a history of raging and complaining about events and shit. It is one solitary incident. If we kicked people out of teams for all of the minor shit like that we'd have no players left.
2016-10-24 17:46
somehow other sports can function much better than cs. maybe because they have higher standards?
2016-10-24 17:48
the fuck are you talking about? The NFL for instance has players who have committed actual crimes. Their only standard is if you can play. They have lower standards but they are much bigger and function much better. It has nothing to do with that.
2016-10-24 17:52
Im talking no violence sports for youngs like e.g. bike jumping, races etc.
2016-10-24 17:54
there are douches that have been banned for shit in F1 in cycling. There are also criminals in real football and basketball. It is true in all sports. People only care if you can play.
2016-10-24 17:56
Lel comparing CS:GO with a non-violent sport You're literally shooting people in the game Also it was a lame rule and bad communication that was the reason glaive had a flip

Actually you have to calculate the median so 3+2/2= 2.5 Tier Kappa
2016-10-24 18:02
3+2 mod 4 => tier 1
2016-10-24 21:04
That's actually how you calculate the mean, it's purely coincidence that the median is the same.

But it isn't
2016-10-25 00:16
To find the median of an even amount of numbers you average the middle two.

 | 
Other kimbadim 
That is indeed correct. I was thinking about that every Astralis player except gla1ve is t3 according to Jyubei, so the median would be 3. :)

they did need him for the major spot too. I guess he came with a hefty price to pay for astralis.
2016-10-24 16:36
they dont. Having device, dupreeh and xyp9x is already enough for the major spot
2016-10-24 16:37
dupreeh had surgery so he doesn't count as the third "legend" status player. EDIT: Basically Zonic has his status since he played in his spot.
2016-10-24 16:39
oh thats right i forgot they played with zonic last major
2016-10-24 16:39
Yes - so theoretically they could put Zonic on the starting roster and then swap him before the first game - so they didn't HAVE to pick gla1ve. And I bet that's not the reason they picked him.
2016-10-24 17:45
no,dupreeh didn't play in play-off so they have to palynology with gla1ve or zonic There is an article about it on hltv

He seems to have improved heavily since his time off after all the drama that happened a year or two ago. Hopefully whatever issues he might have had was ironed out in that time, especially with how much that is at stake being in a top team.

Had my hopes up for Valde, but it will be interesting to see what gla1ve can bring to the team. I was certain that it was not only on the tactical side they were slacking but also on the firepower side. Let's see how it goes. Looking forward to it.

2016-10-24 18:50
Actually it was the only reasonable option for Astralis since they got rid of karrigan. gla1ve was the IGL of the first tier1 Danish team in CS:GO (Western Wolves - gla1ve Nille Nico MSL Pimp, 16-1 offline on inferno vs NiP, constantly defeating VeryGames and overall they were extremely fun to watch). Now he has a plenty of work on how to utilize Kjaerbye to be that star player he was in dignitas and Xyp9x to simply be useful for the team. After 3 years of wasting time he finally has got a top tier team to be part of, it's the chance of his life, and he's able to use it to full advantage. GL gla1ve, make Astralis great again pls!

While this is somewhat true, it's not that simple. Of course it depends on who, but often a single roster change can completely alter a team. Not only do you have to get the communication on point with the new guy, but you also need to figure out where to put him in your strategies. Often you would have to redo strats and overall gameplay to fit the personality of the player. But I hope Heroic will do great with niko.
2016-10-24 17:10
Now kick dupreeh and xypex, get valde and konfig/magisk/aizy and you will may win something in the future.

Ruining is a strong word, but Astralis could definitely destroy Dignitas competitiveness if they traded a player with them. Dignitas has only had success with the current line up, so changing a single player could be enough to break their motor.
2016-10-24 17:59
Oh - it sounded like your opinion was that they were ruining them already.... and with their current winning streak, that's pretty far from the truth... ^^

Not so sure about that. I still think Astralis is better on paper. They have had far better success than the current Dignitas lineup, if you look at the overall success. That is, ever since they were Dignitas back in 2013/14. Edit: But currently, Dignitas is far superiour.

Please no :D Although i wouldnt put it past them. Cash is king and fnatic is a big org. Im still kinda hoping this fnatic lineup will fail again. Dont know why, but im not a fan of shuffling players around like this. Making things work seems like a better perspective to me. Thats why i liked Heroic and dislike fnatic and astralis to begin with. I understand why players and orgs are happy to swap but me as a fan, i just see it as buying success and i will never support this over working things out like proffessionals.

Why would you abandon something you built from nothing that really has promise to join a team with a bunch of players who made a career out of choking? .....money it never fails lol
2016-10-24 18:05
"made a career out of choking" You do realise that Astralis/TSM has once a top3 team right? They made a career out of good placings in tournaments (top4 a lot of times) Yes they have problems with choking, but it's not like they were not making it out of groups or anything. They always made it to top8/top4 and then they choked. It's only until recently where they have been losing a lot of games.
2016-10-25 11:52
I am aware of them being tsm and at one point top team in the world but what major tournament have they won? Sure top8/4 placements are good but the amount of skill on some of these dannish players is unreal. They should be winning these tournaments and even when they were top 1/2 they really were just the only team that had fnatics number. Idk ive just seen them really throw away games that could have cemented them as one of the greats of all time

The fall of Astralis is on the way. I doubt they'd get as good IGL as Karrigan, recently he even improved in terms of results (kdr). They may try new players but finding one as good as their last IGL is going to be a hard, if not impossible task.

2016-10-25 11:56
No. Maybe xyp is in some kind of slump, but kjaerbye will never be as good as him. We will see how xyp9x will perform with glaive.
2016-10-25 12:47
Glaive lmao worst player from Heroic joins Astralis tier 3 Danish team makes perfect sense actually.
2016-10-25 06:52
i hope you are baiting. gla1ve is one (if not best) of the best danish IGLs. and a slump does not make a tier1 team tier3.
2016-10-25 09:04
Firstly the only reason they're taking this bum player is because they don't want to play with zonic in the team, secondly he was never even a decent IGL and none of his teams he's ever led were ever good, Heroic is the only decent team he was ever playing for and he wasn't IGL. Think of it this way, their only choices at least until February 2017 is zonic or gla1ve they made a lot of stupid decisions and now they are stuck, don't feel bad for them at all either.
2016-10-25 09:11
