Markus “Kjaerbye” Kjærbye is a 23-year-old Danish player who is considered as one of the most talented players in the CS:GO scene, and he proved his worth by becoming the youngest major winner in the game.

He started to make a name for himself back in 2014 with Copenhagen Wolves. Two months later, Kjaerbye joined Dignitas and consistently performed for one year. Afterward, he joined one of the greatest teams in the world, Astralis.

After joining Astralis in May 2016, Kjaerbye and the Danish team started to build up chemistry, which led their way to win ELEAGUE Major: Atlanta 2017 and Intel Extreme Masters XI – World Championship.

However, the roster couldn’t keep up their dominance as they did in late 2016 and early 2017. At the start of 2018, Kjaerbye decided to left Astralis because of a lack of motivation after winning the major with them and joined the newly established team, North.

Since then, Kjaerbye had been trying to find his form back but things didn’t go well as everybody wanted. Following two years with North, Kjaerbye decided to try out his luck in FaZe. But, the roster was already messed up when Kjaerbye went there.

Therefore, he left FaZe Clan three months after joining the organization. Lastly, he had been playing with HYENAS for three months. Unfortunately, the Danish player announced his retirement from the professional CS:GO scene.

In the announcement, Kjaerbye revealed that he doesn’t have the same motivation and enjoyment from the game and this is the reason why he wanted to retire from the game even though he is still such a young player.

Thank you for everything Kjaerbye,” Astralis said goodbye to their former player. “The memories, victories, and for being a major part of Astralis. We wish you the best of luck in whatever you choose to do! You will always be a part of theAstralis Family.”
