Astralis bench Lucky, add farlig to roster

Astralis have benched AWPer Philip “Lucky” Ewald, replacing him with Asger “farlig” Jensen. The change comes after the Danish team were eliminated from Intel Extreme Masters Katowice just ahead of the playoffs stage.

“Farlig possesses many of the qualities we need on the team: He is an aggressive impact player who’s not afraid to take on the fight and take initiative,” Kasper Hvidt, director of sports at Astralis, said in a press release. “He creates space for his teammates, while at the same time contributing to the team dynamics by being the person he is.”

Hvidt acknowledged the recent problems that Astralis have faced as they have struggled to find impact since bringing in Kristian “k0nfig” Wienecke and Benjamin “blameF” Bremer to complete their lineup. Hvidt expects farlig to bring much-needed firepower from the outset and help Astralis “take the next important steps.”
