Astralis bring in Snappi as Xyp9x takes leave

Astralis have announced that they have secured the services of former Heroic member Marco "⁠Snappi⁠" Pfeiffer as Andreas "⁠Xyp9x⁠" Højsleth is taking a break from competition.

The 29-year-old will be standing in for Astralis in the near future after Xyp9x expressed his desire to get some rest due to feeling "burnout/stress symptoms chasing me over many months."

Snappi joins Astralis on a short-term deal, presumably until the end of June, when Patrick "⁠es3tag⁠" Hansen will officially complete his free transfer from Heroic.

Snappi reunites with JUGi on Astralis

It is currently unclear what will happen to Snappi's prospective move to Mongolian team TIGER, who already have an agreement in place with Heroic to bring in the Danish player together with British AWPer Owen "⁠smooya⁠" Butterfield.

Xyp9x becomes the second Astralis player to take a break from competition, after in-game leader Lukas "⁠gla1ve⁠" Rossander stepped down from the roster two weeks ago due to medical reasons. In a statement, the 'clutch minister', one of the founding members of Astralis, highlighted the importance of a spell away from action "to rest and find the motivation to get back to competing for Astralis."

"Everyone around me has done a great number of things in order to avoid it, and there is nothing that I would rather do than keep on playing without a break," he added.

"But the time has come to take care of my health and therefore I have given in a sick note to Astralis."

Snappi, who has been out of action since the beginning of April, when he was benched by Heroic, will make his first appearance for Astralis in the BLAST Premier Spring Europe Showdown, kicking off Monday. The Danish giants were drawn into Group A alongside ENCE, NiP, sAw and Vitality.

The 29-year-old will reunite with Jakob "⁠JUGi⁠" Hansen, who joined Astralis earlier this month and has been standing in for the team in gla1ve's absence. The pair played together between 2017 and 2019 in Heroic - when the team was owned by RFRSH Entertainment - and also in OpTic.

Astralis currently have:

Denmark Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz
Denmark Peter "⁠dupreeh⁠" Rasmussen
Denmark Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif
Denmark Jakob "⁠JUGi⁠" Hansen
Denmark Marco "⁠Snappi⁠" Pfeiffer (stand-in)

Denmark Danny "⁠zonic⁠" Sørensen (coach)

Denmark Lukas "⁠gla1ve⁠" Rossander (on leave)
Denmark Andreas "⁠Xyp9x⁠" Højsleth (on leave)

It's a shame that the by far best team in the scene (even despite recent setbacks) seems to be splitting up. I don't see this signing as any good choice, but to be fair - who's there to use at this point? I don't think they're done for good though, and I'm sure they'll come back and keep pushing the meta. Hopefully we'll see them back in full force - they brought a lot of good to the scene in spite of the hatred that everyone in #1 is in line for. Wp Astralis.

Due to online, players might feel a little bit depressed. It will soon get in ordre when lans will be possible
2020-05-28 11:39
Omg... Depressed when its online... Burnt when its on lan... Cant get it right for these cunts..... Xyp and glaive too probably just wanted time off to spend their money... Major is pretty much secured... They dont give a shit about these small events yet they will still make money because Astralis is still playing them... 2000iq
2020-05-28 12:11
True, you cant blame them though. And if it will only be like 3 months its not a problem

2020-06-01 14:24
honestly, im not buying into it. xyp's twittlonger was a fucking copy paste of gla1ve and it stinks... i feel the players just dont care honestly... the whole idea of getting more players was fine while es3tag was singend but now its out of control, 8 players, nobody knows whats going on cuz i dont feel we are getting told the truth
2020-05-28 11:55
snappi is standin until estag comes. and jugi was free so ez stand in

It's a bit weird that Snappi is free but es3tag isn't. They both had contact with Heroic which is shutting down. Why did they give Snappi for free? 🤔
2020-05-28 20:07
I dont Think They bought snappi he is just a stand in as far as i Can tell
2020-05-29 09:08

2020-05-28 18:22
bro, astralis cut everyone's pay, but can afford to bring in 3 more players? what bout the people who's wages you cut?
2020-05-28 19:13
Any proof of that? Also even if that's the case, they didn't bring in 3 players with signed long term contracts. gla1ve and xyp9x are still above the other 3 players right now in terms of who's staying where
2020-06-17 22:49
there is so much proof about astralis and their scummy org, just look it up. Who cares if they aren't long term deals? they could be signed for up to a year, and the staff who have worked their for years are getting paycuts so the org can sign more players Also stop reviving dead threads ty
2020-06-18 09:55
(Btw this is probably me being an idiot) They might be trying to sell everyone except device and magisk and rebuilt or something. (edit: also check #444)

The only "evidence" would be that astralis is struggling to find replacement for xyp so it can mean that they didn't knew that for a long time.

There are rumors that original investors are looking for exit. The story of Astralis, as we know it, may be coming to the end.

You do realize they skipped events in 2019 aswell? Because they wanted a break? Still came back and won major. Guess its close to the same this year with the only difference being that they now are in need to attempt events in order to manage their lead at RMR.

they are trying to work out a long-term solution so that they can dominate at the long run (focusing primarily at the majors) without getting burned out and maintaining their health
2020-05-28 14:28
All those people hating you instantly without giving this any thought.. such a shame. Guess they think being a fan of a team means defending every decision even from the org to their death

Technically he would still have to sign a contract. Despite that, use any term or phrase for him joining the team - the result is the same. They're going to play with him. I'm not sure who else they could have taken in though - it's a shame.

Don't you really think that if they didn't need some rest due to stress they wouldn't stay the 5 as a core? I think we need to understand them, we need to understand the amount of stress, pressure and so less rest time they have to recover, which is the cause of their healthy problems.

Thanks for info. Was initially AcilioN (according to Liquipedia) when they were Team X but I guess the reins passed onto Snappi when they joined Heroic.
2020-05-28 16:08
Well it wouldnt make sense if astralis wants to keep their system....i dont say he isnt capable, think he did a good job igling his old teams dont get me wrong But he would either have to implement his own system (which the others arent familiar with i guess + theyd switch back again after hes gone?!)or call in a system he doesnt know all to well and is not confident at all in....so he should just be a fragger and zonic/magisk should call imo

Amazing how you list the same thing twice (or three times). IGS is just a glorified way of saying 4 events won within a short time, which is included in their 20 something (which also includes their majors). Fnatic the same/ slightly more iirc and NiP has slightly more. If you combine NiP and fnatics trophies they obviously blow Astralis out of the water and Sweden has 3 top #1 player spots, while Denmark has an amazing total of 0. And that is only if you count CSGO. If you include 1.6 Sweden is far and away the greatest. But of course Denmark has been dominating the last couple of years, and overall is the second greatest CS nation ever imo. I guess France and Poland follow?
2020-05-28 13:28
Winning an IGS is a testimony to dominating the top tier scene. Astralises achievments far exceeds all of swedens which have managed very little since 2015 (5 years ago!!!). It is very clear that since the scene developed and wasnt just a couple of pro teams sweden have had much trouble of keeping up. Just look at esportsearnings.com/games/245-counter-st.. the Astralis players have won more than twice as much as the fnatic players and the nip players arent even showing in the top25 rankings since they were only relevant back when semi-pros and armateurs competed in 5k $ tounaments. CS:GO have definitely been dominated by Denmark. Counting trophy by trophy would be a horrible way of determining who have been the most succesful since trophies are far from equal in prestige and difficulty in achieving

Bringing up price money won shows you are clueless, since there is no proven causation between prize money and competetiveness. Prize money increased over the years, and to some degree the competetiveness did as well, but correlation =/= causation. So obviously the Astralis players will have won more money since their peak has been in the years where more money gotten into CSGO. NiP last won a real tournament in 2017 and fnatic has tournaments every year but 2017 iirc. Not every tournament is as prestigeous, but that argument would work better if Sweden didn’t have more than twice as many tournaments as Denmark in GO.
2020-05-28 14:42
Your last statement couldnt be further from the truth, if you look at hltv they stopped tracking trophies lower than S-tier in 2017 meaning trophies like flashpoint arent even showen in the trophy logs. More than 50% of NIPs tournament wins in CS.GO are in tournaments where 4 teams participated trying to win 5k $ the same goes for about 30% of Fnatics. Trying to portray that these tournament should count equal to winning a major championship nowadays is completely wrong and therefore price winnings where Denmark is leading by miles is the best we got. Astralis is no doubt the most succesful team in CS:GO arguing otherwise would be dumb AF on top of that Denmark have ML, Heroic and North all of which have won signifcant tournaments throughout the years, if we should count NIP and Fnatics victories in the early days we defninitely should count them as well which would put Denmark way ahead of sweden. It's funny how nationalistic swedes are about this tho, i have never seen a nation so pityful about something like CS, everyone with a brain will say Denmark is by far the greatest nation in CS.GO that's just how it is, stop being so insanely butthurt and salty about it.

Obviously the 4-team tournaments back in the days aren’t comparable to major, I never said that. By your logic with the prize pool WESG has the most prestige. Sweden has had for instance GODSENT and LGB as relevant teams. North/Dignitas has 2 T1 and 3 DH Open iirc which is good honestly, while Heroic has like 3 low/mid tier tournaments. MAD Lions has V4 and Flashpoint. They are still like 10 tournaments short of NiP/fnatic. Obv Denmark is the best the last years, but I really don’t see how they have been better overall in GO.

So this is exactly what they told they will do. Bring in other people so that players could take a break. Nothing fishy in there. They said that they missed a lot of events in the past because of some issues (medical reasons, players needing a break, etc.) Bringing in other players to the roster means that they can compete all the time.

i'd say this is not even the last roster move for astralis, hearing that they have been scrambling for players behind the scenes (ALEX for example)
2020-05-28 11:52
they asked: - ALEX from Vitality, but Vitality said no because astralis is in the same blast group as them - Lekr0 but NiP seems to have said no - es3tag if he can come earlier but Heroic obviously also said no but they asked all these players only because xyp9x leaves now. i think alex would only have been a standin because the whole team had to switch to english comms then, but i can see snappi and lekr0 get permanent spots in astralis tbh

Now all they need is for Ave to join, so Zonic can take a break too.... That would hurt them more than any player swapping they have done though, Zonic being the true leader of the team, official as unofficial.
2020-05-28 14:08
Soomething is wrong in the management är astralis, maybe People are getting what they are owed. Them not going to events in 2019 and then simning a major is not a sign of burnout. The playerd just doesnt want go represent the org anymore. Or they därmed so much money that want a different på tv to take in life. "Burnout" "medial leave" thats all bullshit, and we all know it.
2020-05-28 14:10

Wow what kind of lame excuse is this burnout thing pro players are bringing up these days. A common employee anywhere in the world works for 9-10 hours in the same organization and does the same work with the same team all year long and doesn't complaint about getting burnt out but young people earning decent salary playing video games for 6 hours a day while staying at their comforts of home are getting depressed and burnt out. Tell me more.

Remember crowd standing in arena screaming your names...screaming Astralis...going crazy after crazy mach! :) I dont play SCGO, but because of Astralis team I stared to watch live streams and became fan of CSGO and fan of few SCGO teams. gla1ve and Xyp9x are Legends! Ii hope they will take rest and come back even stronger! I do understand that they need it. They dont have any breaks...Event after event...trips(not now)... SCGO should be same like other sports... should have season and Holidays 2-3 months.... :) I was not supraised that Astralis put 6-7 ppl. Sad that gla1ve and Xyp9x left befor new team member came. But it is as it is. Health is fist. I do respect there descision.

The 'clutch minister', one of the founding members of Astralis, highlighted the importance of a spell away from action "to rest and find the motivation to get back to competing for Astralis." "Everyone around me has done a great number of things in order to avoid it, and there is nothing that I would rather do than keep on playing without a break," he added. So he needs to find motivation (and rest) but still he would like to keep playing without break?????? If players have motivation issues they want to have break so does he have motivation issues or not?
2020-05-28 14:46

2020-05-28 15:10
Well you know what? I'm sorry. I believe you, and I was rude to you on purpose because your post read like you were trying to be mean on purpose. It's because I have issues, and love the chance to get to be an asshole to others. It's not your fault. Back to the post. He says he wants to keep playing but is simply physically/mentally unable to, cause he needs a break. He says it to assure followers and teammates that he is still on-board with the team and game, to not give them false impressions or ideas, that he would be leaving the team or quitting the game or something like that. He'll be back, but right now needs some time off. Perhaps he is worried his performance would suffer (very) soon without a break, also letting down his teammates and fans if he starts to suck and starts to not care about the game.

Ty for being nice. I got that he needs break and will be coming back but I was wondering about that motivation part. To me it sounds weird that player who has motivation issue says that he would rather keep on playing without break (when he clearly wants break because he has no motivation right now) but it was probably like you said to assure others that he is still on-board.
2020-05-28 15:30
He wants to sound politically correct, and when people do so they end up saying things that in some ways contradict each other. But also, he is speaking from the heart. It's like...you can be happy and sad at the same time about the same thing. For example, a baby is born. The parents feel joy because it's a new life, but they feel like shit knowing all the work that is ahead of them. Or you put a big bet on your favorite team on csgoatse.com. During the match you feel excited about the possible win, but also scared and worried that the possible loss. Feelings can be contradictory, even if idealistically you'd want your words to be one-meaning only, for the sake of clarity and ease of being together. Unfortunately, life fucks with all of us in ways unimaginable. This is just my thoughts, others will have different thoughts.

When you have won as much as they did over the last 2.5 years (ok... the scene is shit and no real competitors that match their level), it's human that you loose motivation. When you have won everything, it's even harder to grind hard to stay on top. Look at VP, SK, NiP, fnatic... When you're on top, the only thing left is the fall.
2020-05-28 15:03

Well it gives Magisk a chance to fall back into his old role and let Snappi concentrate on calling strats. But....man this is weird. Snappi deserves the shot though. One of denmarks finest IGL's for years, played with several of them beforehand, kinda got taught to be IGL alongside Gla1ve etc. And he's a chill guy, will fit in nicely. Best of luck Snappi. Time to rise and shine

Everyone expect them to play at their best every single game which is almost humanly impossible. Yet most of them almost manage to do so which is ridiculous. <<<<<they have to be very diciplined for long periods of time. My guess is that you plebs can't even go a day without wanking off your dick or eating too much sugar so fuck you all fucks. Try to be a pro-gamer urself. Ur not a pro gamer for a good reason

Ooooh noo, not my stresserino and burnouterino. It's a tough job you know, being paid to play a video game in the top counter cuckerino team in the world. I just hope when I take my medical leave from this video game team that my wife's boyfriend allows me to watch as he plows her asshole every night, I just couldn't live without that.
