Astralis set to sign es3tag as they look to build six-man roster *

Astralis are poised to sign Patrick "⁠es3tag⁠" Hansen as they intend to work around a six-man roster after a disappointing start to the year, HLTV.org and 1pv.fr have confirmed.

The Danish giants came in at the last minute and hijacked FunPlus Phoenix’s plans to sign es3tag along with the rest of the Heroic squad, with the Chinese organisation now left to ponder their future in Flashpoint and in the game.

This will be the first roster change for Astralis since the organisation signed Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif from OpTic in February 2018 following the sudden departure of Markus "⁠Kjaerbye⁠" Kjærbye to North. The Danes ended up turning that situation into an opportunity as they ushered in a new era in competitive Counter-Strike, winning a staggering 16 Big Event titles, including three back-to-back Majors. On top of that, they scooped the $1 million Intel Grand Slam Season 1 prize, and set a new record for the longest stint at No.1 in the world rankings - 406 consecutive days.

es3tag is on the brink of joining Astralis

But results have dropped off since the start of the year, causing Astralis to lose their No.1 world ranking to IEM Katowice champions Natus Vincere earlier this month after four months at the summit. Lukas "⁠gla1ve⁠" Rossander’s troops will have to play the BLAST Premier Spring Series Showdown after finishing last of their group in London and were trounced by Na`Vi in the semi-finals in Katowice.

es3tag joined the Heroic squad from Tricked in June 2017. He has averaged a 1.06 rating on LAN while with the team, whom he helped to victory at Games Clash Masters 2018, the Toyota Master Bangkok 2018 and DreamHack Open Atlanta 2019.

It is currently unclear when es3tag will join up with the rest of the Astralis squad as he is currently in Los Angeles competing in Flashpoint with FunPlus Phoenix, whose future in the league has now been thrown into doubt.

Astralis currently have a 2-1 record in the ESL Pro League following Friday’s close victory against ENCE. They are slated to play at the ESL One Rio Major and BLAST Premier Showdown in the next three months, but the coronavirus outbreak has put a large question mark over the two events.

With es3tag’s addition, Astralis will have:

Denmark Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz
Denmark Peter "⁠dupreeh⁠" Rasmussen
Denmark Andreas "⁠Xyp9x⁠" Højsleth
Denmark Lukas "⁠gla1ve⁠" Rossander
Denmark Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif
Denmark Patrick "⁠es3tag⁠" Hansen

Denmark Danny "⁠zonic⁠" Sørensen (coach)

UPDATE: Erik Askered, CEO of Heroic, provided the following statement to HLTV.org: "I am unable to comment at this moment, as we are making legal preparations. This is due to the fact that we know and can prove that Astralis has acted in bad faith, and have considerably affected the sale of Heroic to FPX."

UPDATE 2: Nikolaj Nyholm, CEO and Founder of Astralis, issued a statement on Twitter after his organisation confirmed es3tag's signing. According to him, "no actions were taken to the detriment of Heroic or FPX", and Astralis offered es3tag "an employment agreement starting July 1" after being informed that Heroic wanted $800,000 for a player who had three months left on his contract. His full statement can be found here.

Someone has likely already informed them that they are going to step down or are thinking of stepping down. Maybe dev1ce is scared because of health and wants to return home and be on lockdown. Maybe gla1ve has had too many meth induced rages in practice and they are over it, his frag impact has dropped dramatically since the smoke bug update. Probably an insurance signing for now.

He is better then you think. Btw what did magisk really do before he joined Astralis. Sometimes u need to be on a top team to take the last step as a player. But sure man... question Zonics choices and the rest of the team has been a part of this also.. zonic might be the last Word. But he works with the players on things like this.. try Reading his book.. you will learn a few things u prob dident know by now.

i havent watched es3tag that much but i think he is a pretty good rifler so i think either dupreeh or magisk has to take awp to give him a chance at being the rifler at their team (most prob dupreeh since he is not as consistent as magisk as a rifler,still insane rifler but magisk is more consistent in 2020 tbh) why the hell do they need a 6 man roster and i dont think es3tag is gonna a leave his team after 3 years ,but its from astralis so he might also leave for that
2020-03-21 18:18
I just can't imagine if device gets benched. Maybe Astralis just wants a substitute.

Jep.. to many people here dont get it it seems... i am actually surpriced how few understand this. Players get tired. Motivation. Getting a sub ready knowing the systems. And Dup is the only player on this current setup that has a warning.. dev has several times had to strugle with health.. something i dont think/gues is all over. And Zonic Can not keep beeing used as stand in. They looked to Fc Barcelona from the begining and sports in general. Subs is only a Logic step to take. So im happy at least you understand.. tired of Reading posts from idiots! 😝

bro that was 2 years ago ,didnt you watch starladder ?he got more kills than device in awp actually and a few other tournaments where device wasnt comfortable with awp he drops for dupreeh and uses rifle (sometimes magisk)but magisk is too good of a rifler to be replaced as awper, i dont wanna give my opinion any more man cause surely no one at hltv would know why the fuck astralis did this ,but for sure other teams are gonna copy this and their fans are gonna talk shit about astralis again

u just watching starladder ? lol, so explain why Device got top 3 in HLTV last year ?. In the whole career and the whole season, Dupp never get better and less consistence than Device. Remember the season just start and we know that Device lessly started slower in the early season.

"u just watching starladder" lol are you an idiot i had to give an example ,and if you want the most recent one ,dust2 (astralis vs vitality)i think dup had as many awp kills as devve and i never said dupreeh is better than device ,i said whenever devve doesnt perform well with the awp ,the next awper is dupreeh in their team and "in the whole career" device actually didnt start his career as an primary awper ,incase you have been watching cs from 2019
2020-03-27 11:19
1 reply
stop trying to be a stupid, Did i said about Devve started as AWP role ? Device became top player as AWP role, we already know when he comeback with his form as normal. Astralis will be back, the problems is not about conformtable, the Astralis just lazy in the early when other team try so hard to research their strategy. So Duppreeh never be a good AWP, he is fucking inconsistent and just only perform well as second awp

That's not a great pick not in terms of skill but in terms of role. wasn't es3tag an AWPer? what are they gonna do switch out device who's probably the best awper and one of the best players in the game? I would get if they picked a rifler to switch out with dupreeh from time to time since he's not very consistent atm. Nonetheless I'm curious to see what they have in mind with this pick.

If it was about swapping a dedicated awper for another dedicated awper I would go for acoR. Hands down. Besides; isn't roster locked in all tournaments?
2020-03-21 21:30
5 replies
Its not about swapping for a young talent, people need to understand that non of the youngsters would join to sit on the bench/6th spot. Es3 is a good pick, he can AWP and rifle, so replace either Device if needed or a rifler in the team. Also, they get another voice and a person that can analyze games etc "Besides; isn't roster locked in all tournaments?" Not sure
2020-03-21 21:36

If it's not about swapping a player, then I can't imagine risking being stuck on the bench seeing your active career passing by. I don't think it's possible to have more than 5+1 (coach) on the roster for any big tournament.

Probably in case someone can't play because some personal problems or have something more important to do Es3tag jumps in as stand-in who knows all the strats and can replace in last-minute just like it works in AGO mhL was benched so F1ku changed him and it was easier to them cause F1ku known what will they play not like with traditional stand-in who needs to improvise

2020-03-21 18:43
Actually a very good move. Device has been unstable. Bench him and es3tag can easily take the awping duties
2020-03-21 18:44
is it allowed to swap players during a game like in football? that could be another strategic element to the game. Does anyone know if it is allowed

Huh? But why? 2 bad tournaments and already a replacement in the works? Didn't expect this from Astralis. Also didn't expect es3tag - while the guy seems very nice and his English is god-tier, he was the worst player in Heroic, and he never showed the potential Magisk showed on North. If Astralis make him a permanent addition, replacing one of their current, they'll be doomed to never again be a top 1 contender. That's how it always works - once the former top 1's start making changes, it's nowhere but downhill.

2020-03-21 20:07
Their signing of gla1ve proved they are thinking way above than just the players' current skill rating. Mindset in and outside the game, what the player is willing to do for the team and how etc. I don't wanna be guessing why are they recruiting 6th but it might be just a bit over-exaggerating to say this move is brainless.
2020-03-21 20:07
Es3tag is good player, but this is bullshit, losing twice to Navi when they are in their peek form especially Electronic and Simple is no shame, maybe some internal problem between two players will cause them to bench one
2020-03-21 20:09
This makes no sense. They are gonna bench one player and replace with es3tag. No such thing is 6-man CSGO team. They probably brench dupreeh.

Just fucking why? I think every player on Astralis are irreplacable. After 2-3 poor events you make a roster change ? Really ? Are u gonna forget 2 years of dominance in the top scene? Just take a break,its not that you struggle tactically but you struggle with your individual skill.

roster change =/= 6 man roster , just means 1 person gets some time off every time , so they can play alot of events and still get time off , 200IQ move
2020-03-22 01:32
You dont understand anything do you? 1. Device health issues 2. Players said they skip events because much travel, which means Es3tag can step in and play for Device etc. 3. They are not just adding Es3 to get a new player, he can help them when hes acting as 6th player by watching demos with the team, share his thoughts etc with gla1ve and so on. Do you think Stavn, as a young talent would accept a role as a 6th man? No. Es3 obv would. See the bigger picture lol.

2020-03-22 04:03
That extra addition at the bottom, is Heroic CEO looking to sue Astralis for potentially ruining a deal with FunPlus Phoenix? The entire move makes little sense. Astralis were at their peak in 2018, with the greatest era we've yet to see in csgo, their 2019 wasnt all too bad even though they did slump for like 5 months, and 2020 has barely started yet, events are postponed or moved to Online (where anything can happen, look at Na'Vi), so we cant say they're doing bad yet. Unless there's some internal struggles going on between the players and they need a breath of fresh air to help mix things up, i dont see how having a 6th to be a bench warmer is a good move. Nobody on the lineup is doing bad enough yet to be in a situation where they have to switch spots with Es3tag every so often, and Dupreeh hasnt received a 2nd warning since having that really shitty period that could potentially see him benched for Es3tag.
