North recently finished top four at StarSeries i-League Season 5 and at DreamHack Open Summer, entering the top 10 in the ranking for the first time since signing Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye and promoting Daniel "mertz" Mertz from the academy team.

2018-06-23 20:40
Astralis good, but the Finnish squad headlined by international star AWPer Aleksi "allu" Jalli, two up and coming Finnish superstars Jani "Aerial" Jussila and Jere "Sergej" Salo, smart support allrounder Sami "xSeven" Laasanen and lead by 200iq IGL Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen will overcome them in Cologne, with allu, the veteran 60-bombing dropping fools with the AWP-Sniper like Simo Häyhä in the winter war. #EZ4ENCE
2018-06-23 20:48
People still think they are the north of 3ish months ago they have improved greatly but this is still a little too early for then to be invited
