Bubzkji leaves Astralis; begins broadcasting for TV 2

The former MAD Lions is now free to seek opportunities following a mutual contract termination with Astralis.

The talented Lucas “Bubzkji” Andersen is no longer on contract with Astralis, the Danish organization confirm on Monday. The 23-year-old leaves Astralis after a rather unsuccessful and 16-month tenure, where his long-standing benching on the lineup has been an overshadowing factor.

Despite representing Astralis for more than 550 days, Bubzkji only ended up playing 86 maps for the team out of 278 in total.

Kasper Hvidt, Director of Sports at Astralis has stated the following concerning the recent news:

- Despite joining us in a difficult time, being in and out of the team and only rarely playing his favorite position, Lucas has played a significant role in Astralis over the past two years. - He has been loyal and a true professional throughout his time with Astralis and it would have been difficult for us to maintain a solid level during a time with players on leave and the ongoing development of our set-up.

- It never turned out to be what we all hoped it would and I am glad we have found a solution giving Lucas free hands to find the best possible solution for his future. He has always delivered when called upon and we owe Lucas a big thank you and best of luck with his future endeavors. He will always be a highly valued part of our history, Hvidt stated.

A new career path?

In the official statement by Astralis, the Danes announce that Bubzkji has joined the Danish National Broadcast station, TV 2 as an expert commentator. Something, he elaborates in an interview with Dexerto:

- Many will probably be shocked that I’d rather work as an analyst than play, but right now this feels more right for me.

- I don’t want to give the impression that I’m retiring or that I’m never returning to CS competitively. But for the next period of time, I’ll be doing something else. And yes, I’m fully aware of the consequences of going out of form, and of becoming less relevant over time. I’ll still be around the high level. FACEIT, FPL, random qualifiers, Bubzkji said to Luis Mira and Dexerto.
