device looking to return to Astralis - Report

The AWPer is reconsidering his move to the Swedish team less than a year after the blockbuster transfer.

Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz is looking to leave NIP and go back to Astralis according to a joint report by 1pv.fr and Dexerto. The outlets have stated that multiple sources have told them that the Dane is looking to find a way out of his three-year deal after moving back from Stockholm to Copenhagen in the second half of 2021.

While the return of the 26-year-old star with 19 MVP awards to his name would work perfectly for Astralis — who have been struggling to figure out a solution for the AWPing situation since device's departure in April —, the long contract presents a significant barrier for a potential transfer back to the organization he won four Majors with.

The Swedish experiment hasn't been working out for device

device's transfer to NIP, when he was on the last year of his contract, was speculated to have cost the Swedish organization between $700,000 and $1,000,000. How much NIP would ask to return him back home, when he has over two years left on his contract, isn't clear at this moment.

device's first six months in NIP

Distress in the relationship between NIP and device was noticeable at the final tournaments of 2021, as the Dane looked crushed after elimination by Liquid at the BLAST Premier Fall Finals, an underwhelming result that followed a 5-8th placing at the PGL Stockholm Major on home soil.

The final European RMR tournament of the year, IEM Fall, was device's standout event as he recorded a 1.35 rating and secured the MVP medal, but that result turned out to be just a flash in the pan. The Swedish team struggled to challenge for titles in 2021 and have fielded two different academy players since device's arrival: Erik "⁠ztr⁠" Gustafsson and Linus "⁠LNZ⁠" Holtäng.

The arrival of Patrick "⁠es3tag⁠" Hansen, who introduced communication issues to the mix, and the departure of head coach Björn "⁠THREAT⁠" Pers surely didn't help NIP's case. In the end device missed out on NIP's final games of the year after reportedly being sidelined due to medical issues.

BlameF and Konfig are definitely good pickups, and with a star awper back on your side - could be a big upswing! :) Lucky has been a massive disappointment, imo.

Since the news was reported through intermediaries, he may not want it to be public yet, and therefore denies it. But NIP's current position is quite disadvantageous compared to Astralis' performance, so I can easily imagine that there is a fair basis for him to want to return to the old team.
2021-12-21 02:31
And hltv unconfirmed again:(

I dont think that. We went the most he could. He finished in 5-8 place. NIP is not one of the 4 best teams in the world. I root for them agaist G2, but they were not better than G2. Es3tag was a good pickup, but they need more, i dont like humpus callying style, specialy on T side, so maybe some IGL and put Hampus on Plopski place. But a IGL that speak the languege is not avaliable rightnow

And I remember that interview after a loss, devve was crushed, " what I've done ?!?!" - that was literally on his face and "I want to go back for a year" - was in his eyes....

this !
2021-12-20 20:54
device has never been a hard-carry type star player so if that's what they wanted then they made a mistake. Astralis had 4 good fraggers and a good fragging IGL and that's why they dominated, they didn't have any weak links.
2021-12-20 18:24
2 replies
He was carry and top fraggeand very very rarely underperformed hence nickname mr consistent.but they (astralis) managed to give alot of space for device to be pro active around map while on nip he had mote pressyre to be playmaker and be much more hyper agressive. On astralis he used to get all space like rn gambit makes fot sh1ro to frag.
2021-12-20 20:10
1 reply
If they are giving him all the space he wants etc. it means they are picking up the slack elsewhere i.e. he may be top fragger but he isn't carrying them. Obviously the start AWPer is a big part of their success but it's not a hard carry scenario like old Na'Vi or something. So when he goes to NiP and the team is much weaker around him, he's not able to solo carry the team to success every game.

I doubt that very much. NiP doesn't have strong cards on their hand in this negotiation. NiP wanted Dev1ce, now he wants out. Astralis wanted to sell him, now he will surely be a good pick. But there's other awpers they must have been negotiating with. Acor, Farlig? Maybe even Stavn? And he didn't get younger since they sold him. So I find it incredibly hard to imagine NiP getting the same amount back as they paid for him. Maybe Dev1ce will pay some of the buyout, but I can't imagine Astralis paying that much.

Astralis will have to pay more than 1m, he has more than 2 years left on his deal
2021-12-20 18:36

You have no fking clue about that mate. Even if he had 20 years left, he's only worth whatever another team will pay for him. NiP calls Astralis; "Yo, device is crushed, he wants to return to you guys, 1m return deal?" - "Yo NiP, sorry guys, we're negotiating with Acor and Farlig, we're getting a younger Device for potentially $300k. Why spend 1m?" Should NiP let him rot on bench and make zero $, or let him go for $6-800K? Is he even worth $1M for Astralis? I doubt it.

wrong: Device wanted NiP and they took him with open hands. He signed 3yr contract and he won't get out easily, so he would need to be benched or keep playing or Astralis would buy him out, but i guess NiP would want like double his buying price at least, which Astralis surely wouldn't give

Honestly speaking, I think phzy is close enough to device in nip that they're better off with -device -es3/plopski +brollan +phzy. Especially considering Rez's inconsistent performance. But that's assuming fnatic are even willing to sell him, we'll just have to wait and find out.

It was a risk that didn't seem to pay off for Device, which is the problem with risks. I don't think it's Device's fault at all but now the issue is will Astralis even take Device back? Sure enough, he would probably just replace Lucky but with Dupreeh or Magisk, it's hard to imagine what the team would be like.

It's devices fault for signing a 3 year contract. If you have the leverage to not sign one you should never do it (and he had that leverage, its device). If they do take him back i'm sure the astralis lineup will be better than this nip lineup. A team with gla1ve device and blamef can never be really bad

The original Astralis line-up was not the era-defining Astralis we know today, there were cracks and that started to show... So at the time, I don't Device made the wrong call, it was just the most unexpected call. I highly doubt he will play for 3 three for NiP and if Astralis do want Device back, most likely Lucky will be the one to go.

This year's been pretty bad for a lot of newcomers. Lucky, kyojin, lnz, and ztr all got moved from t3 to t1 and didn't play well. I think b1t and maybe drop are the exceptions. But then again for all those teams I couldn't see them having much better results if they had signed experienced players instead. If xyp9x hadn't signed a contract until 2025 I would have kicked him and kept lucky into a better player - he's not an all aim no brainer like kyojin
2021-12-20 14:59
1 reply
I agree, it's been all over the place for roster changes and only a select few actually worked and paid dividends. B1T's success was essentially prodigal, it was ZywOo/Gambit Youngsters level of insaneness when it came to adapting to tier 1 so quickly. The only one we didn't see play tier 1 this year was m0NESY, so we shall see how that pans out. If Lucky can play support like Xyp9x, then by all means keep Lucky who is always going to have a better potential skill ceiling than Xyp9x but if Device is to go back to Astralis, I don't know if they will keep Lucky.
2021-12-20 15:06
I don't see why people aren't mentioning the fact that he joined NIP to be with his girlfriend in the online era. But like two months into his tenure with NIP they broke up. That probably killed his desire to stay in Sweden

2021-12-20 19:20
Nip signed es3tag because of this guy and now he bails. How desperate is he to hold onto that greatness he had in astralis. Atleast stick to what you planned on jeez. Es3tag hasn't even been signed for long.

If Astralis actually takes dev1ce back and replaces lucky with him without at least giving him enough time to adapt to the team, it’ll just be more evidence that proves that Astralis is a shit organization. I mean just look at what they did to Bubzkji.

😵‍💫 they want to take their proven awper which glaive and Xyp have played with for years and has every achievement in the game over a young guy who isn’t even awing anymore 😓
2021-12-20 16:19
no such thing as "shit organizations" there are only orgs with good pr and bad pr. orgs are like companies, they only care about success. the only reason why some orgs are liked by people is they avoid shitty pr moves. the only reason why some orgs are disliked and called "scummy" is shit pr like nip with all their dramas.

Haha but in all honesty, 2022 is shaping up to become an interesting year with all the speculative roster changes, dev1ce back to Astralis would be perfect to replace lucky and they finally have the AWPer they need. G2 let's say they get m0nesy and aleksib, Ropz to FaZe, Gambit will continue to fight NaVi and maybe start succeed. Vitality's revamped lineup? etc. etc. This has a chance to become the most stacked Top-5 ever in CSGO history. Only feelsbadman for swedish CS, maybe they need to join forces and get one good Swedish team of what's left, both Fnatic and NIP doesn't have enough player material to build a top team atm.

Do you honestly believe that players decide to change teams because they want "a new challenge"? I think that's just publicity bs, all they really want is a stronger/stable team with a bigger/comparable salary.

"Do you honestly believe that players decide to change teams because they want "a new challenge"?" Yes? lol. Thats how it works in sports and esports. "all they really want is a stronger/stable team with a bigger/comparable salary." Depends. Would you work with a low-medium salary or, if you had the chance, get a very good salary? Obviously thats how it works. Look at football players like Neymar, Thiago Silva, Zlatan and Messi etc, they joined PSG even though PSG was, and probably still is, a meh team in a meh league.

What I was saying is that dev1ce left Astralis because it was a sinking ship, and chose NIP because they could afford him and because bootcamping in Sweden was more convenient for him. They also probably offered him more. Where's the challenge in that? A bigger challenge would have been staying in Astralis and figuring out how to fix their problems. And now when NIP are in the same position they were in when he joined, why does he want to leave? Because bootcamping in Sweden is no longer convenient for him. So basically he was only there for the convenience, not the challenge.

"Where's the challenge in that?" Obviously he wants to bring NIP to the top? They are top 5 now, could probably be top 4 soon. NIP was only 96 points behind G2 before Es3tag joined, so. "why does he want to leave?" according to his statement its lies from the "reporters" so.

Stacked teams don't always means success either. Sometimes in-game experience is worth more than you know. X9p and glave aren't going to be great for 3 years but I'd bet they have another year or two if dev1ce replaces Lucky. Sometimes it's have faith and confidence in those on your team that you don't have to worry about them as much and can focus on your game.

as i see it other teams are in better spot right now, and are also getting an upgrade, its not like they are just stacking firepower, roles make sense as well for g2/vita/faze navi is good, gambit is improving, so id expect new astralis to battle for 6-9 with heroic,nip and vp Single player change very rarely improves a team from top15 to top5, but it could be that astralis is just chilling now and waited knowing that device will join to go hard again, because lucky is not that terrible and results should be better on paper, they just felt teethless last tournaments right after device became sick

Yea, but also have BlameF and Konfig with them, they are an upgrade in my opinion over dup and mag... Bringing dev1ce back and the confidence that comes with that.. They move to where they belong at the 5 mark. I don't think they are top 3 potential but you'll hang out in 5th for most of the year. Also keeping in mind that BlameF and Konfig are still new to the team and they need a few more months of solid practice together.

LNZ was super promising honestly, and he was apparently good to have around with him hyping the team up etc, good for morale. And Phzy has shown he has huge potential as well. REZ, Hampus, Plopski, LNZ, Phzy could be a good team when they've settled in. Look at Gambit, they came out of nowhere as well, with only Sh1ro being the real superstar in the making at first.

Then it's more appropriate that the entirety of NiP spends more time in T2 to build chemistry and experience together...? If Gambit did it I mean. No point for LNZ to play with another team in T2 and then join NiP in T1, that makes absolutely no sense.

Is it? if device gets bought NiP is probably going to promote some academy kids and thats it, the only "championship investment" they can make is Brollan and KRIMZ, but thats even more unrealistic. Maybe they invest in HEAP/PlesseN, and joel too if he is still playing, they could also choose between chawzyyy and phzy, but i would rather have phzy, even if chawzyyy is 3 years younger.
2021-12-20 21:03

2021-12-20 16:19
Big blow for NiP, he really took them to a new level and with some stability they could be a top 3 team. Could mean a huge payday tho if they can get him back to Astralis for a bigger sum then they bought him for, a 75-100% increase of the transfer fee would make sense since theres 2 years left on the contract. Not sure who they could buy to replace him with tho and still be on the same level skisswise, probably noone available. They should of gone for dupreeh and Magisk instead of adding e3stag and replaced Plopski (amazing but to unstable and not sure he can reach the potential we thought he had) for: device (still best danish player imo) REZ (prolly best swedish player the coming years) Magisk hampus dupreeh

Not surprised at all. Literally 0 awper option out there in Denmark that's good enough for astralis to compete against Navi. dev1ce comeback might be the only answer for them. Not sure the spirit is still in there tho. Losing magisk & Dupreeh is still a lot to process. GL devve. No more simp, no more move out to another country for a 5/10 girl. Lol

If it's true then the entire Nip and Astralis were in a clown fiesta directed by device. The debut cannot be worse. The recruit of pric3tag is shitshow. REZ is inconsistent af,but still hopeful. washed up poopski and two kids named after promo code criticized for being inexperienced. The only relevant thing they pulled is an RMR event champion.
2021-12-20 17:20
That's why it didn't make sense to begin with, adding es3tag was another showcase of this team management being a circus. Also moving THREAT to another role just before the player break... Bringing in another academy player instead of just picking a strong name like Lekr0, f0rest or HEAP. Also keeping Plopksi who's terrible... Now on the other hand, that Vitality move looks absolutely garbage, because there are so many talents in denmark you could easily build a strong team just having zonic, magisk & dupreeh as starters. Imagine these three with 3 of CPH or just 2 + valde. Clown fiesta orgs

Vitality roster is one of the most powerful roster one can make on paper but in reality it will never work out.

As i wrote here few weeks ago... I don't know the background, but this is obvious choice for both sides (Lucky is one another not terrible, not good enough youngster in top tier team). If gla1ve can set up roster properly (which should be piece of cake for him), they can be title contenders for sure. I think dev1ce can still do a lot IF he wants to, question is, IF he has motivation. NiP is simply not good enough team for him to stick around. Arguably most interesting prospect is hampus and that is kinda sad. I hope they make this happen AND they play sick games afterwards. Also rivalry with Astrality might be nice cherry on top ;)

His departure caused a huge mess on the original roster that resulted in the team being torn apart, now, after the Original Astralis is effectively gone, he wants to go back? Dupreeh and Magisk Must be fuming right now.

2021-12-20 19:56
I mean, why not. He probably just did the move in the first place as a desperate attempt to save the relationship with his girlfriend. When that didn't work out, what is he really doing in Sweden? It makes perfect sense. And with Lucky not even close to being on his level, it should be an easy decision for Astralis. Business wise. And as always, es3tag is the unlucky one...
2021-12-20 20:00
this guy just dont know how to loose anymore, wants to go back since not winning everything is too hard? cmon, grow some manparts!
2021-12-20 20:01
hmm
2021-12-20 20:02
If we remove the whole Drama from this, potential wise Astralis with -Lucky +Dev1ce right now would be more than powerful! Their firepower 4/5 players rocks and they just miss a middle link which seems broken under the name of Lucky for now. Not that Lucky is a bad player himself but I think that he lacks experience which also affects his mindset and makes him incapable of bringing T1 results constantly right now.

2021-12-20 20:27
definitely a good move for Astralis, Lucky is washed up and gla1ve can’t do sh!t awping…. but feel bad for NiP i don’t see any good players in SWE to make NiP good again. They should go for international lineup like fnatic did, keep rez and hampus and rebuild the whole team, maybe even f0rest and GeT_RiGhT together again i don’t know 🤷🏻‍♂️
2021-12-20 20:29
Astralis was a whole. Someone left the team and the whole order was broken. So was Faze.
2021-12-20 20:30
getting device back to astralis doesnt solve their problems. their t-sides suck bigtime and a decent awp is not a quickfix for that issue. but with a lot of prac, and gettin blamef and konfig in sync with the program it might be the solution in the months to come.

but atleast they solved one of their problem if device back, about in game issues yeah device won't be instant fix but they can improved and getting better on that as time goes by specially with roster they had with device rather than waiting to be good with glaive as an awper.

I feel bad for es3tag but he can learn swedish quick I rather much have him come along with you to Astralis as package deal. Pf crazy times but what has gotto happen is better to let it happen rather sooner then later.

All he wanted was for bubzkji to get shown the door. bubzkji can't perform unless he is a star player. As soon as they signed blameF and k0nfig & Emilia and him broke up, i knew this was in the making, but not sure it would unfold, as 1m is a hefty sum of money. He is lonely in Sweden, and mental health should always supersede your career.
