Astralis - Previous lineups & players
The Astralis players always have been all-Danish. The basic structure of the team remained the same for a long time. In 2016 cajunb and karrigan played for the organization, later on a player swap was made by Magisk, who replaced Kjaerbye in the spring of 2018. A little later, Astralis won their first Major, which was hosted by Faceit in London 2018!
After the signing of Magisk and before the departure of dev1ce, the legendary lineup won four Majors. Due to health problems of Xyp9x and gla1ve, three players named JUGi, es3tag and Bubzkji were signed in the summer of 2020. With a short-term switch to a seven-man roster, Astralis made history once again. In November 2020, the team played together in the original lineup for the first time again. At that time JUGi was without a team, es3tag was signed by Cloud9 and Bubzkji stayed together with Astralis. In early August, Astralis opted for a six-man roster one more time and signed Philip "Lucky" Ewald from Tricked Esport.
The second-last major transfer at Astralis took place, as already mentioned, on 23.04.2021 with the departure of dev1ce. The Dane and probably the most successful player of all time decided to transfer to NiP. Nicolai has been living in Sweden for some time now. After the Stockholm Major 2021 Astralis went for a big change. Besides dev1ce, also dupreeh, Magisk and zonic left the team. Xyp9x and gla1ve extended their contracts. Furthermore on 31.01.2022 Bubzkji announced his departure from Astralis.
