Astralis Revamp Roster - Signs k0nfig and blameF

Astralis Revamp Roster - Signs k0nfig and blameF

Following a lacklustre major performance, in which Astralis started off the Challengers stage 0-2, before mounting a comeback to move on in the PGL Major. Their legends stage was disappointing to say the least, so much so that the Danish giants have revamped their roster, with players to fit the bill.

The four-time CS:GO major winners have added Benjamin "blameF" Bremer and Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke. The duo recently spent time with Complexity, where k0nfig struggled with a wrist injury, and has been inactive since August. Meanwhile, blameF captained the European squad as IGL, and left earlier this week.

Who Is On The New Astralis Roster? 

Paving the way for new additions are Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen and Emil "Magisk" Reif, with their contracts are expiring in January. Both are legends of the game, being former major champions. What the future holds for the duo is uncertain.

Alongside the change in roster, Astralis have also confirmed the departure of coach Danny "zonic" Sørensen, and has added Alexander "ave" Holdt. Holdt previously coached North back in 2019, and has been on hiatus since. This includes an ESIC ban for his involvement in the coaching bug scandal.

On the move, blameF said "I'm really looking forward to getting started. When Astralis calls, you need really good arguments to hang up, and the conversations I've had confirm my impression: This is where I want to be now and going forwards! These are some huge shoes to fill in, but I also feel I can bring something new to the team and make a real difference."

The Astralis roster now looks as follows:

  • Lukas ”gla1ve” Rossander
  • Andreas ”Xyp9x” Højsleth
  • Lucas ”Bubzkji” Andersen
  • Benjamin “blameF” Bremer
  • Kristian ”k0nfig” Wienecke
  • Philip ”Lucky” Ewald

The new Astralis will have their first showing at the BLAST Fall Finals in Copenhagen.
