Astralis was the most dominant team in Counter-Strike history back in 2018, and they delivered in 2019 as well alongside Team Liquid. However, things started to get sloppy after 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

First, their core members Andreas “Xyp9x” Højsleth and Lukas “gla1ve” Rossander decided to take a break due to the burnout problems, and they find their form through the end of the year with their new players Patrick “es3tag” Hansen and Lucas “Bubzkji” Andersen.

At the end of the year, they were looking like the old Astralis that we used to watch. Unfortunately, the team couldn’t continue to deliver in 2021. Therefore, Nicolai “dev1ce” Reedtz left the roster in April.

Since then, Astralis couldn’t quite find the chemistry inside the team. Not to mention that they couldn’t win any single trophy, they didn’t even reach out to the finals of any tournament they have attended.

According to the reports of hltv.org, their coach Danny “zonic” Sørensen is considering leaving the team after his contract ends at the end of this year following the rough two years with the Danish organization.

As reported, Astralis most likely replace zonic with another great mind in the Danish scene, Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen, who was the in-game leader of MAD Lions decided to be a coach for Heroic in April 2020.

Astralis roster if the rumor comes true:

  • Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen
  • Andreas “Xyp9x” Højsleth
  • Lukas “gla1ve” Rossander
  • Emil “Magisk” Reif
  • Lucas “Bubzkji” Andersen
  • Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen (coach)

Zonic has been coaching for Astralis since the foundation of the organization, and he is named the Esports Coach of the Year with his performance in Astralis in 2019. It will be an end of an era if the legendary coach left the roster, but he didn’t make any comment about the rumors.
