The Danish in-game leader of previously record setting CS:GO team ‘Astralis’, Lukas “gla1ve” Rossander has signed a new three-year contract that will keep him with the Danish organization until the summer of 2024.
“I am Astralis by heart and no matter how I look at it, here is where I feel at home,” gla1ve said after admitting he had doubts about accepting a new deal with the organization.
“Astralis is an organization that will always strive to progress, to change the game, and to develop the players – and it is engrained in everyone here that we always compete to win the biggest titles,” gla1ve said.
Danny a.k.a. “zonic” Srensen, the 34-year-old four-time Major winning coach, will not be in the squad after his contract ends at the end of the year. The primary contender for the position is Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen, whose future with Heroic has been in doubt since he missed IEM Cologne.

Peter “stanislaw” Jarguz has announced that he has opted to take a break from Evil Geniuses and will return in September for BLAST Premier Fall.
