Astralis replace two academy team members
Astralis have officially announced the change in their academy roster, which plays under the name Astralis Talent. Benjamin "brzer" Jensen and Frederik "Fessor" Sørensen left the team and were replaced by Kristoffer "Kristou" Aamand and Nicklas "jarko" Rasmussen.
brzer and Fessor have represented Astralis since the fall of last year. During this time, the best achievement of the team was the 3rd place finish at WePlay Academy League Season 4.
The press release states that Jensen will continue his career in ECSTATIC, with which Astralis have already signed a corresponding agreement. In turn, the contract with Sørensen was terminated upon agreement of the parties, allowing the player to enter free agency.
The most experienced of Astralis Talent's newcomers is 20-year-old Kristou, who played for AGF and North. 18-year-old jarko has no tier 1 experience and previously represented various Danish squads at the tier 3 scene.
The reshuffle in Astralis' academy team comes shortly after the end of WePlay Academy League Season 5, where it took 4th place. As of now, there is no information about which tournament will be the next one for the Danish squad.
Astralis Talent's current lineup is:
Victor "vigg0" Bisgaard
Alexander "Altekz" Givskov
Mikkel "MistR" Thomsen
Kristoffer "Kristou" Aamand
Nicklas "jarko" Rasmussen
Andreas "MODDII" Fridh (coach)
