gla1ve returns to Astralis' active roster

The in-game leader will take Patrick "⁠es3tag⁠" Hansen's place in the active roster ahead of the team's first match in ESL Pro League Season 12.

Lukas "⁠gla1ve⁠" Rossander comes back to activity after three and a half months on the sidelines, having decided to take a leave of absence in mid-May in order to recuperate from stress and burnout, which saw Jakob "⁠JUGi⁠" Hansen fill his shoes until the end of the season while Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif took over the reins.

The 25-year-old's return will see es3tag take a step back from the active roster and await his next chance to play in official matches. In the meantime, the 24-year-old will be "observing and analyzing the team, as well as assisting with preparation for upcoming matches," Astralis stated.

gla1ve returns after three and a half months on leave

es3tag was part of Astralis' active roster for a single tournament; ESL One Cologne. He impressed as the team's highest-rated player (1.21) during their campaign in the prestigious event, which ended in the quarter-finals at the hands of NiP.

"This is the first time I've had to swap players, and it has actually been a difficult decision because es3tag has been doing such a great job during tournaments and practice," Danny "⁠zonic⁠" Sørensen said about the roster change. The coach also went on to share his plans for the seven-man lineup in the near future:

"In the coming months, all of our available players will get to play, and our priority will always be to go into tournaments with the strongest possible roster," he said in Astralis' release. "It will depend on the opponent and how the players are performing, as well as their need for breaks."

Astralis' roster for their match against Complexity on Thursday at 17:30 looks as follows:

Denmark Peter "⁠dupreeh⁠" Rasmussen
Denmark Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz
Denmark Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif
Denmark Lucas "⁠Bubzkji⁠" Andersen
Denmark Lukas "⁠gla1ve⁠" Rossander

Denmark Danny "⁠zonic⁠" Sørensen (coach)

Denmark Patrick "⁠es3tag⁠" Hansen (bench)
Denmark Andreas "⁠Xyp9x⁠" Højsleth (on leave)

2020-09-03 14:19
why would Astralis drop key players in the greatest team of all time. Once they are all back Bub and Es3 are sitting on the bench
2020-09-03 14:24
Did you all even read the article? Zonic was talking about the 7 man roster. So xyp wont leave. Even tough in the begining they said xyp will Just take a pause and will be back.

I don't think so. Already looking at it now both bub and es3 are firepower upgrades over xyp. If they can only fit them to their system they could be pretty strong.

2020-09-03 16:31
Look at Team Liquid in 2019. You need framework in form of IGL to utilize firepower efficiently.
2020-09-04 08:23

This is completely different. First of all, FaZe's firepower is like overrated AF. Second, they don't have the teamwork to utilize that firepower properly. If you have 2 teams with solid systems and teamwork facing against each other, then it's the "firepower" that makes the difference most of the time.
2020-09-03 17:08
Not really. You argue that they should be picked > xyp because of firepower, and everyone here is trying to teach u that theres a lot of other factors, and firepower is far from the most important one.

I didn't say xyp would be completely replaced. What I said from what I've seen es3tag and bubzkij won't end up permantly on the bench for sure.

2020-09-03 17:40
he said they would be benched and you said no cause they are upgrades to the firepower.... hence all these ppl trying to tell you that its about a lot more than firepower. If you are gonna disagree with him, at least use a proper argument that isnt so generic and seemingly uninformed on your part. Really cba, bye!

Clutch minister holds 1.10 rating before break so i dont think he's not "firepower" compared to es3 or bub... dont underestimate the guy who is in age to play at CS:GO on absolute peak

Dont they kinda have to show in more then a few matches that “they are firepower over Zyp” ???? And besiddes Bubz totally got star struck in the semis.. so he is not there yet.

2020-09-03 14:33
Why Xyp9x on leave ?
2020-09-03 14:33
Bubzkji better step it up, es3tag was playing quite well while playing xyp’s ct positions. Either way glad to see gla1ve is back.
2020-09-03 14:33
es3tag actually performed better than expected, not quite on par with xypl0x, but bubzkji has way more firepower
2020-09-03 14:35
+1 but whenever Xyp returns -Bubzkji is imminent
2020-09-03 14:36
es3tag be like: adios

Es3tag was doing so well. Still glad to see the god return

2020-09-03 14:39
Bringing Es3tag in, with same terms as all others is not true, and offering him the same spot on the team for 4 maps and he prepared for like 6 months. Of course it is gla1ve and he must be back asap but poor es3tag. WTF. I thought device or dupreeh were next taking leave soon as they are the ones next on break? who knows. GO ASTRALIS <3

You all write so decisive about the rooster. If Astralis ends doing what they said they will, everyone can get a brake - that is the whole idea. I just think the scene needs to cope with this. I think the next one that will be off the team will be device, dupreeh or magisk.
2020-09-03 14:41
how is Rooster, an AU team anyhow connected to Astralis, a danish team????
2020-09-03 17:04
es3tag played well tho

2020-09-03 15:02
Not in my eyes, he is ok-ish, but I feel like es3tag fits more in Astralis, he carried couple of games so far, bubzkij was not shining as much as es3tag
2020-09-03 15:19
bubzki totally bot, idk why they bench their best player instead this toxic kid

It's not a good decesion for me to be honest es3tag have a great potential to be one of the best player shame from astralis to bench him

Ez Astralis top 1 for ever and ever
2020-09-03 17:15
Why did they bench est3ag?
2020-09-03 17:17
because someone had to be benched to make space for gla1ve? Yes, Magisk was calling but they won't replace him cos he's too valuable. So it had to be either Bubzjki or es3tag.
2020-09-03 17:36
Yes, it should have been Bubzjki. Es3tag has too much potential to sit on this team's bench for the next 6 months.

Almost sad to see es3tag go back on the bench. He has been doing so well although his position isn't always the most glorious one and doesn't necessary lend itself to getting great stats. But he's smart and versatile and played a hell of a good tournament during Cologne. The downside of having such a big roster is seeing a guy like him sitting on the bench when he would be good for most teams.

Gla1ve was actually making huge plays against Complexity but Astralis teamwork overall needs improvement. Device was missing easy shots too 🤦🏼‍♂️

Unlucky debut but gla1ve is strong in terms of tactics not fragging which is why you can't expect instant wins from Astralis. I believe if you give them time, they will start to do well again as gla1ve and zonic get back into the groove of tactically reading the game and opponents.

-1, Gla1ve top fragging now hahaha go brexit and fck off my life

Why would you fake flag as Poland of all places. You're not from the UK otherwise you'd be smarter to do that. Polish immigrant at most.

When xyp9x comes everyone will quickly realize who is the most important player for astralis.
2020-09-04 19:20
+1
2020-09-05 05:19
IGL is most important player, Xyp is second, device is third. Rest doesn't matter.

Astralis just Warming up for The Major; there are 2 streaks they are fighting to keep alive; Consecutive Major Titles Consecutive play off runs without yielding a map I’d be surprised if The Line Up, come Major time is not; Glaive, Device, Magisk, Dupreeh and Xyp9x Exiting times ahead in CSGo !
2020-09-07 09:39
pretty much confirmed that they use original 5 for next major qualifier
