CS: GO: Astralis Aim To Sign New Player

Published 07/31/2020, 9:03 AM EDT


Former top seeds Astralis are now eyeing Bubzkji as their eighth member. The Danish CS: GO prodigy, Lucas ‘Bubzkji’ Andersen has currently been benched by his team MAD Lions. This move started speculation about the 22-year-old’s future. MAD Lions have mostly been silent on the issue. All they had to say was, “reviewing our roster to position our team for continued success.” Sources from HTVL.org report that Astralis is engaged in talks with the MAD Lions for the transfer of Bubzkji.

This move by Astralis doesn’t come as much of a surprise. They had already made it clear that a 5 man roster is not enough. In March, Astralis signed Patrick ‘es3tag’ Hansen. Later, the signing of Jakob ‘JUGI’ Hansen followed.

If true, this will make Bubzkji Astralis’ eighth man. Two players, namely Lukas “⁠gla1ve⁠” Rossander and Andreas “⁠Xyp9x⁠” Højsleth, are currently on leave. Astralis aims at expanding its roster in CS: GO for a number of reasons.

Firstly, easy substitutions! Anyone takes a break, someone is always available to fill in. Secondly, an academy roster to help the main roster practice. Furthermore, after this signing, they aim to be the best Danish team in CS: GO.

Bubzkji has emerged as one of the best Danish CS: GO talents last year. He bagged the MVP prize in V4 Future Sports Festival 2019, in Budapest, playing for Tricked. He was also critical in MAD Lion’s Flashpoint 1 victory with an average rating of 1.23.
