End of an era: gla1ve benched on Astralis – Replaced by Staehr and b0RUP

The four-time winning Major in-game leader has been placed on the transfer list.

After six years and seven months in the Astralis jersey, Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander was today removed from the active lineup.

Astralis announced the benching of their legendary in-game leader, who is the most coveted in-game leader in CS:GO history in a press statement, where 18-year-old Dane Victor "Staehr" Staehr and Johannes "b0RUP" Borup will be new faces on the Astralis lineup, while Alexander "Altekz" Givskov rejoins the talent squad.

The in-game leader responsibility will fall on Benjamin "blameF" Bremer with the benching of Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander.

Coach Peter "casle" Ardenskjold:

- I am extremely happy that we have agreed with Sprout on an immediate transfer of Staehr, who is undoubtedly one of the biggest Danish CS talents of the past 5 years. It's an open secret, we've had a good eye for him for a long time, and in terms of what we want with the team, he fits in perfectly. I am looking forward to working with him and helping him to really develop his potential further.

- In relation to b0RUP, he is a player we know well. He has been brought in for the specific role in the system we want to play and I expect him to contribute a lot to the team and his teammates. He is only 23, but he brings in a lot of useful experience, and with these 5 players on the roster, I have a strong belief, we have found a better balance in the team and a will come out with a lot of energy and firepower.

- At the same time, I would like to praise Andreas, Alexander and Lukas for their efforts during a difficult period when, despite hard work from everyone, we have not made things succeed quite as we would have liked. We have seen good signs and trends along the way, but we also had some very big dips and neither found the right constellation nor a stable level of performance. We now have the opportunity to bring in two players who fit in with the way we want to play, and the time for change is right, says the head coach.

28-year-old Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander has won 19 S-tier tournaments with Astralis including four Majors. The in-game leader is number four on the all-time moneylist with $1,860,642.41 in earnings during his career.

Astralis will now look like this:

Victor "Staehr" Staehr

Johannes "b0RUP" Borup

Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz

Benjamin "blameF" Bremer

Christian Møss "Buzz" Andersen
