Maybe because he has two kids now, one relatively new born. So being away for shorter times is probably nice.
2019-04-30 20:56
Anders Blume was one of the main guys behind arranging the first Blast Pro event. And the ones following. He was hired primarily to help arrange and assemble whole thing. Casting is just a secondary thing he does on the side, not his actual job. How is that being a sellout? 0 out of 8, dimwit

2019-04-30 21:05
Dude scrawny and launders has become really legit casters and moses has always been great as both analyst and caster. I would like too see sado and henry but this is as close to as good you can get.

Yeah, even if they aren't tier 1 casters yet, they are still loads better than "Spanner in the works" duo Hugo and Harry. Hugo and Harry just narrate what's on screen, they have zero personality of their own.

2019-05-01 05:12
Where's Thorin?
2019-04-30 21:48
Thorin said that Astralis is making a big mistake by focusing on Blast events instead of other events, that they might spoil and limit where their era potentially could go. He is not wrong but I don't think the event organisers appreciate it much.
