gla1ve to miss BLAST Premier Fall Groups
Xyp9x will come back into the active lineup after being left out for the group stages of ESL Pro League Season 14, in which the Danish squad failed to qualify for the knockout stage of the tournament as they made their first appearance with newest member Philip "Lucky" Ewald.
"I really want to play, but I also did not want to put the team in a position where they had to change a player while a tournament was going on," stated the Danish in-game leader on Twitter. "Together with Danny, I am doing everything to prepare and help the team get ready for the BLAST group stage."
Astralis have not stated who will take the mantle of IGL in gla1ve's absence. The last time the captain was not available for the team when he took leave in mid-2020, Emil "Magisk" Reif stepped up to the role, and he is expected to do so again this time around.
With the return of Xyp9x the Astralis roster for the event will look like:
Danny "zonic" Sørensen (coach)
