The in-game leader of Astralis, Lukas “gla1ve” Rossander, has been playing for the red stars since October 2016, and he earned over $1.500.000 from the tournaments that he attended.

Gla1ve made a statement on his official Twitter account and announced that he will step down from the team at least three months.

As you might remember, former Team Vitality player and in-game leader of the team Alex “ALEX” McMeekin took a break in March 2020 due to the stressful and frustrating schedule of the esports.

Today, Gla1ve announced that he has been struggling with stress and burnout for a while, and he needs to break for a full recovery. With this statement, he saddened all the community and showed how hard to be an esports player.

Here is the statement from Gla1ve:

“Toughest decision of my life.

For a longer period of time, I have had symptoms of stress and burnout. My teammates and the Astralis organization have tried many different things to help me out and overcome this. As it’s still going on, my doctor and I have decided that I need a break, and yesterday I have given a sick note to Astralis.

The next 3 months I will be using my time to fully rest and then come back to the Astralis team.

I want to say a huge thank you to my teammates and the organization for being so understanding and helpful troughout a situation like this. It can be tough to put health first, but I have found out that it’s necessary.”
