Today, rumors about changes in Astralis roster appeared. According to them, Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander is going to replace Finn "karrigan" Andersen in the roster.
Previously, gla1ve and his team joined the top 8 teams list in ESL One Cologne 2016. Currently, gla1ve play for Heroic team. Kjaerbye did not play for Astralis in Cologne as he played for Dignitas at the European Minor-tour.
It needs to be mentioned that if Astralis management decides to kick karrigan, only two players with legend status will leave in team. Dupreeh did not participate in One Cologne 2016 because of the health problems.
According to Valve rules, a tram can participate in Valve Major-championship only if it has at least 3 players with legend status. That is why, Astralis cannot lose gla1ve now.
If Lucas declines the offer, zonic will take his place. He replaced dupreeh in the previous Major-tour.
If the rumors are truthful, Astralis roster will be as following:
- Peter "dupreeh" Rothmann
- Nicolai "device" Reedtz (with legend status)
- Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth (with legend status)
- Markus 'Kjaerbye' Kjærbye
- Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander (with legend status)
· Danny 'zonic' Sørensen (coach, with legend status)
