Astralis to sign JUGi - Report

According to a report by TV2.dk, Jakob "JUGi" Hansen will be joining Astralis as the Danish team looks to expand its roster.

The news follows a report from earlier this week by DBLTAP.com, which noted that Astralis are "exploring the possibility of adding at least one more player" to their roster. Astralis announced a roster expansion to six players back in March, after reaching an agreement with Patrick "es3tag" Hansen, but are potentially looking to go up to eight.

JUGi is set to bolster the ranks of Astralis

As es3tag is only set to become a part of Astralis after his contract with Heroic runs out at the end of June, JUGi is seemingly going to join the team first, as the 23-year-old AWPer is a free agent and is "joining the team with immediate effect", according to the report.

JUGi has been a free agent since the end of April, when his contract with North ran out. Earlier in his career, he also represented OpTic, but has never been able to replicate the form he showed early on in his career, in Heroic and Tricked.

If the report is confirmed, Astralis would have the following roster:

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

Denmark Danny "zonic" Sørensen (coach)
Denmark Jakob "JUGi" Hansen (backup)

2020-05-10 22:24
Es3tag is a really versatile player who can play pretty much any role and still always deliver. Jugi on the other hand... isn't. He is a mediocre awper. This move really is confusing.

2020-05-10 22:17
They talked about it on Zulu, the Danish TV channel that shows CS GO live. This new experiment of Astralis has been made, because zonic probably believe, he can turn jugi into another device, so they can easily swap between them for the future. Meanwhile they will train magisk in some of gla1ves roles, specifically the ingame leader, which make room for esetag to learn magisk, xyp9x and dupreeh's roles, so they can change whenever they want, without having to actually make any structural or tactical changes. It's gonna be very exciting.

2020-05-10 22:29
I think it's only a question about how much jugi is willing to learn, and to be honest, early in his career he was very promising, so if he gets polished by the best coach and ingameleader in the world, I truly believe it could happen. And about magisk being on pair with glaive it's a hard one, but he has been playing with him for a long time, and with zonic by his side, he probably could excel too. Only time will tell, I guess.

2020-05-10 22:53
No problem. This makes sense on alot of levels actually, considering device's disease, dupreeh potentially "burrning out" and just the whole future of Astralis in esports. If they make this work, they can make sure the next generation of Astralis players will learn from the active players, so they basically never have to start from scratch and become irrelevant.

These moves are being made because the Astralis organization knows some of their players' time will soon be up. 1 or 2 of these 3 new players will become permanent starters. Dupreeh is the oldest, most visibly upset on LAN, and on the decline. Dev1ce has had health issues and wouldn't mind chilling at home. gla1ve has been out strategized multiple times in the more recent meta's of late, and Astralis is clearly vulnerable at this point. I could see dupreeh being released first, while dev1ce takes breaks inbetween certain competitions. Jugi will be used solely as a replacement for dev1ce when dev1ce wants a day off. Eventually once Magisk is comfortable in the IGL spot, gla1ve will transition into coaching while Zonic takes a more developmental role in the organization. The 5th will be stolen from one of the young danish teams. One of stavn or farlig. Perhaps they find a way to steal Valde back to the Danish scene with OG completely out of competition. est3ag Valde/stavn/farlig Magisk xyp9nx Dev1ce/Jugi(specialized backup)

It is not about that he is going to be a substitute like in any other sport in the world. they are doing this so they dont have to use Zonic if somebody is unavailable for whatever reason.
2020-05-10 22:27
jugi is an aggressive awper
2020-05-10 23:37
So you think that device always is better than jugi, on every map, at every position, in any situation?

Not if JUGI can find his aggressive playstyle again which he was known for in his days in Heroic, that might be a good counter against some teams. Overall I do like the strategy from Astralis and im excited to see what JUGI can bring.

2020-05-10 22:52
Are you incapable of reading LMFAOOO sometimes forget what kind of people are on this forum Do you understand that stat padding against shit opponents and going missing against t1 teams can end you up with a good score for a year? jugi hard carried heroic against fnatic and SK in their prime.

You are dumb or wut?. Those 2 are trash. Jugi has amazing talent but need someone who will help him develop it and what is better place than the goat team
2020-05-11 10:08
yeah maybe natosaphix was a bit of a stretch, i give you that. but in jugis current state i'd prefer cadian, he could even IGL and learn a lot from gla1ve. i understand where you come from, jugi looked super good when he was in heroic 2(?) years ago, but since then he's really really underwhelming. nonetheless i'm sure astralis know what they are doing

Wtf are you talking about academy team? Same owner also had godsent, their second academy team in your eyes then?
2020-05-11 09:15
Well he's free, that's it, they won't sign someone like farlig for a rotation player

JUGi plays so unintelligently that it literally hurts to watch him play - don't understand this move
2020-05-10 22:09
Maybe he can learn things from Device. He was also very good on Tricked and Heroic, I think he needs structure and learn how to play smarter - Zonic, Glaive and Device can help him with that.
2020-05-10 22:46
Yeah, but he is 23 - shouldn't he be at his peek by now? For sure, he can be tought some additional stuff from Astralis players, coach and support team - but the way he plays (not smart) is so frustrating to watch and his performance the last year has been terrible hltv.org/stats/players/matches/8783/JUGi.. Bottom line - the es3tag move seems smart - not this one, but time will tell - after all, the Astralis team are not stupid

Signing Valde is the most efficient way to fuck up your team. Only play for himself and skills way too low to match his ego.

2020-05-10 22:12
Yeah I’m kinda thinking the same but if you take a neutral look at it there are at least 3 danish awp players that performed better in the past year. Nonetheless Astralis probably knows what they are doing..

2020-05-10 22:19
maybe a second team with rotation? when jugi really really performs in this second team, then switch him to main team for trial.
2020-05-10 23:05
So maybe never lol, when has jugi ever performed really well?
2020-05-11 10:15
In heroic he was insane with the awp. North picked him up but then he was shit. But tbh everyone knows how shit it is in north. I mean they benched players like magisk and konfig wtf xd

Calm down people. Yes there is like 2 or 3 players that befter at Jugi role. But understand this, Astralis sign him as BACKUP. Did anyone that better than Jugi wanted to sign as Backup? I say NO. You don't sign a good/star player(s) as a bloody sub/backup. You sign those who have experienced and avg skill to help when it needed.

2020-05-10 23:10
Farlig probably wants to perform more on other teams and rise in status, so he can join Astralis at a later point, instead of device. Not as backup for device.

so astralis now got both hansen brothers. good for them. but i wonder what the endgoal is? are they gonna replace players after matches or maps? league teams already established this system but i dont know if its beneficial for cs teams
2020-05-10 22:45
It now becomes obvious Astralis wants to have an extra roster/team and I see no reasons why it wouldn't work. Zonic and gla1ve have a lot of experience and could raise a new talented IGL.
2020-05-10 22:49
i would love to hear about the reason, behind this pickup .. My guess is the maincore focus on the big tournaments and Jugi and es3tag, will take the blast pro series etc.

TOs pay for flights and hotels. I don't think they'll pay for more than 6 people (team + coach). Of course orgs can pay for those, but I'm not sure if they think that would be worth it.
2020-05-10 23:31

I dont think viewer experience will necessarily be enhanced by having teams with 10 players. And I don't see how it'll generate more income to an org. So I don't see your point.
2020-05-10 23:36
thats not what generates the income, just the general increase of interest in esports, meaning teams that want to succeed will have better chances in it with more talent in their roster and team that is working well brings advertisers.

JUGi sucks, there's no other way of saying it. Why they picked up this awper that never actually had good plays I'll never know.
2020-05-10 23:38
2019 user of course gonna call jugi a bot lol . he was good with good igl in old heroic . gla1ve will make him good again
2020-05-10 23:42
Even with a bad IGL you can still make some plays and stand on your own two feet? JUGi consistently whiffed ANGLE shots. He is a passive awper like device without the ability to click at the right time.. He definitely lost mechanical skill when he joined North and he won't regain this back anytime soon in my opinion. We will see in the future when he plays, but my expections are very low.
2020-05-10 23:45
its not about north . its when he moved to OpTic but k0nfig also became bad and now it seems he is finally back and he is really good on complexity if astralis took him,they are clearly seeing potential in him,right ? they know better than us.
2020-05-10 23:47
They see potential in him, I'm fine with that. Personally I don't see it. If they can make him into a tier2 awper that can perform against rank ~20 teams at least, I will be definitely be pleasantly surprised and eat my words.
2020-05-10 23:53
he carried heroic and some ppl even tought astralis might get him in 2018 as main awp and let device rifle
2020-05-10 23:57
We'll see. I wonder what is wrong with North as an org (coach maybe?) that they can't properly utilise players. Even then without their influence it's easy to see how JUGi was playing poorly in every single North game. Again, we will have to see, I'm not holding my breath, but if he plays well in a game with Astralis you can say you told me so :)
2020-05-11 00:00
man i told u wasnt only North .he was bad since he joined optic in late 2018. dont think that was north issue
2020-05-11 00:03
So what does Astralis have that OpTic and North didn't, that's my point. They may see the potential in him but it might just be him as a player losing his skill.

Why is this really happening? Astralis tired of travelling so much? To improve training? One or more of the core players has health issues? One or more of the core players will be leaving within 1-2 years? One or more of the core players will be taking time off, maybe have kids? A long term plan to have 2 Astralis teams?
2020-05-11 00:16
Maybe they will follow chinese dota2 orgs trends that has multiple lineups (EHOME/LGD are prime example) and were doin reshuffles all the time (if something was not goin well) within their own rosters.

What as terrible threat this is. All sort of opinios on what Astralis is doing, but since nobody knows what their plans is they are all just a waste of time. All we can say by this time is that Astralis growing their team means they are not just going along doing the same old thing, they are trying things which I think is a good sign. I indicates a team willing and wanting to innovate and grow, something which could mean they will become an ever better team in the future.

So they can rotate the players and let them rest. It's hard to compete, train and travel almost every week.

So will the main 5 get to play in the majors or if JUGI is playing better than dev1ce JUGI gets play the major, I also dont know if es3tag and JUGI and anyone else they bring in will be necessarily happy with this, I mean if it were me I'd rather be a full time player on tier 2-3 team than be basically a stand in for a top 5 team
2020-05-11 02:55
E3etag is ok with it was a interview couple months back on danish tv as for jugi rather astralis bench than where er he is now😂
2020-05-11 07:58
Yeah but it's still Astralis. The biggest team in the world, start from the bottom aim at the top. Perform better and you can have a shot, who knows maybe X9pyx or dupreeh would average 0.85 rating in the next three months. Astralis sure as hell can take the 20% point reduction hit for changing a lineup in RtR. Not like they can do much in the major while they're in Heroic or North anyway. It's like saying I rather play for the New York Knicks since I can't make the playoff roster at LA Lakers. Or like saying I rather play at Norwich since I can't make it to the starting line up of Liverpool in the champions league. I mean, I understand if they're from Mouz or Faze but one is in a team that's never been to a major and the other was just fired in North. Being a backup player (with full wages) in Astralis is a hell of an upgrade

wtf why???? RIP Astralis

JUGI one of the best awpers I've seen. Happy for him.

Soon half of the Danish CS players will sit on Astralis’ bench. Are Dolph Lundgren, Tomato & co. gonna share their prize money with all the bench warmers?

Astralis is going to sign the entirety of Denmark before they have the opportunity to switch to Valorant. Galaxybrain move.

If he returns his best form from 2017 he will be a solid addition for the team. Still wondering how they want this system to work, but at least it looks interesting and fresh
2020-05-11 04:58
form from 3 y ago ? nt.. also get ronaldinho back and schumacher...

2020-05-11 07:06
Wtf 😂😂😂😂 Are they gonna make a trash edition of astralis now I get he is free but signing him just cause of that seems odd
2020-05-11 07:56
Yes if they want someone actually good they can get farling or even gayed or atleast fkin aizy but gade and aizy are in north so they wont leave ,farling is a decent player too ,idk why astralis is doing weird shit ,i hope it works out

2020-05-11 10:07
for what do you need 7 players???
2020-05-11 10:16
looks like they want two players for each position so their players are more relaxed and have more free time. also astralis is harder to read for other teams when you have to watch demos from ten players instead of five i imagine

Astralis if you did that for free agency please take me to your team I will even pay you to just let me lift next major trophy with you to see my self on hltv' top post 😍😍😍
2020-05-11 10:50
Farlig going to north.
2020-05-11 10:54
Omg wtf, not JUGi. He seriously needs to step up his game if he's not just going to end up on the bench, then. He's really good at his peak level, but he only hits that level in 25% of his games. He is inconsistent AF. :/
2020-05-11 11:50
Jugi really???? wtf lmao why not CRUSH lol? anyway gl 4 Jugi
