Astralis release JUGi; announce Bubzkji signing

The Danish squad has made a new addition to their roster, signing Lucas "⁠Bubzkji⁠" Andersen on a two-year contract.

A month ago reports have linked Bubzkji with a departure from MAD Lions, and the 22-year-old rifler's new home has now become public - Astralis. The Danish powerhouse has swooped in for their rival's highest-rated player, adding a new seventh-man to their roster as they have simultaneously released Jakob "⁠JUGi⁠" Hansen.

Bubzkji has joined Astralis

"When I heard about Astralis’ interest, I already made up my mind", Bubzkji explained in his statement, adding that he "had other options", but was convinced about the project after talking to Danny "⁠zonic⁠" Sørensen and Kasper Hvidt, the team's Director of Sports.

"I know people will ask about the roster size," Bubzkji says, referring to the seven players Astralis currently have contracted, "but for me it’s simple. Astralis has introduced a lot of new ideas to the way the game is played and it is done with one purpose: To become better as individuals and as a team - and to win."

With the release of JUGi — who stated that his time in Astralis "only confirmed to me, this is what I want to do and I look forward to playing for another team" — and the duo of Lukas "⁠gla1ve⁠" Rossander and Andreas "⁠Xyp9x⁠" Højsleth still designated as "on leave", it seems like Astralis will kick off the season with the trio of Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz, Peter "⁠dupreeh⁠" Rasmussen, and Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif, with newcomers Patrick "⁠es3tag⁠" Hansen and Bubzkji completing the lineup.

Kasper Hvidt added that they signed Bubzkji on a two-year contract, and that "as always, it will take time to get used to Astralis’ playbook, but after talking with him, the coach and the team, I have no doubt Lucas will be able to contribute from day one". The team is currently on a break and will begin their preparation for the upcoming season on Monday with an "off site bootcamp".

Astralis are now:

Denmark Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz
Denmark Peter "⁠dupreeh⁠" Rasmussen
Denmark Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif
Denmark Patrick "⁠es3tag⁠" Hansen
Denmark Lucas "⁠Bubzkji⁠" Andersen

Denmark Danny "⁠zonic⁠" Sørensen (coach)
Denmark Lukas "⁠gla1ve⁠" Rossander (on leave)
Denmark Andreas "⁠Xyp9x⁠" Højsleth (on leave)

Well most Jobs have a trial period, in Sweden it is usually 6 months, for this exact reason. If you do not fit, for whatever reason, you won't get an extension on your contract
2020-07-31 13:56
Still man, Astralis new the level of Jugi, why even take him in the team in the first place??
2020-07-31 14:17
because they were desperate to get two danish free agents quickly so they picked him and snappi up but everyone knew they were both going to underperform
2020-07-31 14:27
stop crying, he got paid for 6 months and didnt perform.

No point arguing with them, these kids dont know respect truly means. Also he only played with the team for only 8 series also with a fuking stand in. It was unfair towards him tbh
2020-07-31 19:00
So if you fail at your job, you aren't respectful. It was contractual and he didn't live up to it. If he himself felt like he wasn't up to it, why did he himself sign the contract, life's a 2 way street.

Western culture isn't built around "respect" like third world countries. Everything is ruled by the mighty dollar. Astralis group is a publicly traded company with investors and stocks. They can't keep a bot in the team or they lose money.

Then they should have given jugi a proper team like a healthy org should
2020-08-01 05:59
its clearly something is fucked, but i dont think anyone thought the jugi signing was permanent
2020-08-01 06:00
Ya me neither. It was even out that he was there with the least amount of salary. I just feel sad for him for being used. And not motivated enogh
2020-08-01 06:03
surely he knew it was temporary. If anything, it was his chance to prove that he could compete wtth the best. He failed to preform, though granted, under pretty shitty circumstances

but since Magisk joined they started to be successful systematically
2020-07-31 17:24
so? that doesnt mean his change was more impactful than device or gla1ve. they won trophies and were a consistent top 3 team in 2015 with device carrying them and won other trophies when gla1ve came. magisk was just a missing piece, but not a bigger piece than these two.

Had to find a quick replacement, so they picked the free option and saved money for the actual players which they needed to do.

Yes they saved money, still have to pay for his contract tho, unless they have bought him out of it.

That's not the point ,in cs players may wanna take a break but still be in the team(gla1ve and xyp ) so if the org wants to attend more events it's best to have players in reserve ,that's why they have extra players ,if you can't understand this idk what to say

Yes but starting 5 NBA players are not skipping games because they "need a break." Special circumstances or if their bodies need time to recover basically. Otherwise, that is what the off season is for. I never said there was anything wrong with Astralis having extra players if they really think they need it. But comparing playing video games for 8 hours a day to being a professional athlete is laughable is my point. There are a lot of reasons that there need to be more than 5 players on a basketball team and relatively little overlap with csgo.
2020-08-01 17:03
you missed the point entirely, op is trying to say that "well you only need 5 players so why have reserves?" when many sports are like that. Esports might be less demanding, but they still aren't an easy task, so having a few reserves isn't a bad move

The question is who's joining MAD Lions? Their next tournament starts in 9 days, and it doesn't seem like Lekr0 is joining. They're not getting anyone from Heroic or North, so who?

I know he said he was looking forward to finding a team in an interview fairly recently so I can only assume
2020-07-31 13:32
what are u talking about lekro is in Mad lions already?
2020-07-31 16:25
Good move
2020-07-31 12:05
An improvement, we can't deny that. But their vision for the game won't work changing the starting 5 and substitutes all the time. They need to settle on something.
2020-07-31 12:05
we'll see if it's going to work only after they will play normal tournaments

Soooo, do they play Esetag at Cologne now or him? Or does anyone from Dupreeh, Magisk or Device ends up taking a leave and they both play? This is Hella weird
2020-07-31 12:10
True, since Gla1ve is gonna be back at Cologne lol So if he isn't back then ofc both of them play but if he is, then imo they should just get Bubz to play. Es3tag is a better all rounder but Bubz is a better rifler, and Astralis need riflers because Device isn't shaking away from the awp.
2020-07-31 12:21
#126
 | 
Pakistan LoOuU2
I wouldn't say Astralis needs riflers if Glaive plays, but yea Bubzkji is probably a better player than Esetag and they can have either Magisk or Dupreeh to 2nd awp
2020-07-31 12:39
Yeah but Xyp isn't coming back rn... so you have a rifler missing. And imo Bubzkji >>> Es3tag as far as rifling goes
2020-07-31 12:44
#165
 | 
Pakistan LoOuU2
Can't argue with that
2020-07-31 13:01
If they are playing with Gla1ve, they are probably going to be playing with Es3tag, as he fits way better into Xyp's role than Bubzkji does, and has had more time to time play with and around the other Astralis players.
2020-08-03 18:42
Yeah I totally forgot that roles are also a thing. I agree with you there :)

Well Device only said that Glaive will be back in August, he didn't said whether it will be in time for Cologne or not, no word on Xyp's return. Maybe both Esetag and Bubzkji end up playing provided Glaive isn't back either

Dude cologne starts on aug 18 and if gla1ve wasn't gonna play cologne what's the point of him returning in August ? To spectate? I think dev1ce meant that gla1ve would play cologne but since it's not official it could change like you said

The roster cutoff date is this week for Cologne according to the last HLTV confirmed stream with JKS 2 days back, so whosoever they wanna play, they gotta decide fast. I just got a feeling now that both will end up playing

Finally they remove Jugi. He wasnt good enough at all. Bubzkji is a bad choice though. He is too toxic and not a team player.
2020-07-31 12:14
If there's someone who can change that, it's Zonic. Hopefully Bubz knows that he's alongside the most accomplished players in the history of the game.
2020-07-31 12:23
stop giving zonic so much credit lol even he wouldn't be able to change a toxic egoistic kid
2020-07-31 12:39
Well even if he does change, everyone knows he'll not be in the playing lineup if Xyp decides to magically return. The core of Astralis will reform as Es3tag and Bubz will get benched, as most people expect.
2020-07-31 12:45
sure he can, already did it with Magisk
2020-07-31 12:53
yeah cos magisk was some random fpl kid who got lucky too huh? magisk was way better than bubzkji mentally this dude is just a kid and also he's overrated
2020-07-31 12:58
lol you clearly got no idea what you're talking about What makes you think he is more toxic than Magisk were before he joined Astralis? Why do you think he got kicked from North when being their best player, and struggling in Dignitas etc. afterwards, when he is clearly one of the best players?
2020-07-31 13:01
bruh while magisk acts matured at 22 bubzkji acts like a 15 years old kid at the same age nuff said retarded astralis fan
2020-07-31 15:09
problem is he wasnt norths best player, that was k0nfig.
2020-07-31 16:52
To be honest it's been a while so i only remember it vaguely, but were pretty sure that he did better at that point, even though i agree that Konfig is the best player North have had

2020-07-31 12:34
Stupid move Because Bubzkji dont have 100% confident he can play in every tournament and This makes no sense because he could be wasted
2020-07-31 12:37
So bubzkji needs to be his best all the time to get playing time. That seems like good motivation. Not being all cozy in a starting 5-man lineup

Good decision, they already have better sniper in device, and let's be honest JUGi played really bad recently. Bubzkji is a great player, he is a great pickup for them. Now for me they should remove es3tag, because I don't think he fits well into this roster, and they should bring back gla1ve to the starting lineup, because let's be honest Magisk is a great player, but his IGLing is pure trash. So now : -es3tag +gla1ve And Astralis are great again.

This is bad move. Gla1ve 3 month break is ending soon, he will be back for ESL Cologne, so they need only six players, before Xyp comes back. Or maybe Gla1ve is not coming back and his break will be longer, or Astralis has other idea than 5 champions that play great together.

2020-07-31 17:10
I mean...I guess JuGi can say that he played on Astralis, but it was for less than 6 months which isn't very noteworthy in my opinion. Personally, I would've tried to sign a contract with another team for at least 1 year to make it worth my time. But hey, it was JuGi's decision so good for him to have been able to play with Astralis.

Damn, poor Jugi... he was so nervous in that video announcing him signed with Astralis, now he probably feels like crap.

Called it, and honestly a bad move by Astralis originally. Now they have left JUGi in the dust, the poor guy probably feels like complete shit now, no team wants him.
2020-07-31 16:55
No top team wanted him anyway after he benched by North. Astralis gave him a 2nd chance and tbh he bottled it.

2020-07-31 19:36
Ahahahahahha Astralis USED and then DUMPED JuGi like the trash he is! And now they have upcoming top5 player Bubzjki and mastermind Es3tag in addition to their GOAT 5-man core. Ez cologne win for astralis

Toxic kid
2020-07-31 20:15
But he came to the very right place to get that part under control. Look what happened to Magisk..... he was very toxic in his youth, something which is completely gone.
2020-08-01 02:14
He is a very punchable person but i hope he changes. He’s good i’ll give him that but with that attitude he can just fuck off tbh.
2020-08-01 14:54
JUGI please step down and hang up the mouse its time.
2020-07-31 20:18
Poor jugi
2020-07-31 22:06

As a matter of fact, Astralis probably ended up making Jugi's career begin. Was a big name and known by everyone before this? Not really right? Now at least he got his name out there, he got that stamp of approval from Astralis regardless. It's gonna work in his favor getting cut from the best team in the world.
2020-08-03 17:41
he is known for being a bot now.
2020-08-03 18:42
He didn't look good at all, but I guess the pressure was very high on him, playing on the best team of the world. But we don't know how the chemistry was between them. Maybe he didn't communicate as much as he should. This game is not only about individual skills.
2020-08-04 10:03
Feels bad for Jugi's career.. F

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark (Shakespeare). Really guys, we deserve an honest explanation for the Jugi in Jugi out situation.

Why xyp9x and gla1ve arent playing?
2020-08-01 09:03
Jugi move was bad. Jugi was very bad but why do you remove him? This is so disrespectful to Jugi.
2020-08-01 09:06
jugi tier 4 player
2020-08-02 16:18
dam jugi is like the red headed step child getting tossed around and beaten on every step
2020-08-01 09:56
yes!
2020-08-01 10:54
R.I.P Astralis.
2020-08-01 12:06
I told you that Astralis would sighn him and it happened now.
2020-08-01 12:16
Nothing surprising, they just signed him for a time limited stint because he was free. JuGi can't even cut it in bottom tier 1,5 teams, let alone Astralis.
2020-08-01 12:38
JUGKEKW
2020-08-01 16:17
so Gla1ve with probably come back in, Bubzkji will play until Xyp comes back and Es3tag will just sit around unless Dupreeh, Dev1ce or Magisk goes on a break.
2020-08-01 18:20
Damn that was fast

2020-08-03 17:39
In May Mr. Hvidt said: Kasper Hvidt, Astralis' Director of Sports, admits that these changes may lead to "fluctuating results" at first, but stresses that the end goal is to build "an even stronger Astralis now and in the many years to come." He also adds that the organisation wants to have two players who can fill every role in the team. Now Jugi is sacked. In my opinion try to get the retired handball player do something else. Because you were good at handball dosnt mean you are great sports leader/chief.
2020-08-03 20:46
finally jugi out, what a bot. bubzjki will fit
2020-08-03 21:58

2020-08-03 22:46
Who is going to take time off when gla1ve and xyp9x return?
2020-08-03 23:39
So if they play with this roster in the final RMR tournament, they will be deducted 960 credits from their current total points.
2020-08-03 23:48
Astralis #1 again
