Astralis to play at BLAST Premier Fall Showdown 2022 with their academy team member standing in

Astralis have announced on Twitter that Mikkel "MistR" Thomsen will stand in for the team at BLAST Premier Fall Showdown 2022. The member of the club's academy roster will fill the void left by Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke's departure.

MistR has already stepped in for k0nfig at the recently concluded European RMR tournament. With the 18-year-old esports athlete on board, Astralis lost to NIP, Bad News Eagles and forZe, which resulted in them not qualifying for IEM Rio Major 2022.

Astralis' press release also stated that during Thomsen's absence from the academy team, he would be replaced by Alexander "br0" Bro, who took part in the RMR with the FANTASY roster. The Danish club, however, did not reveal how long it is going to use MistR in the main team.

BLAST Premier Fall Showdown 2022 will take place on October 19-23. Astralis will compete in the European division that will feature eight teams fighting for one ticket to BLAST Premier Fall Final 2022. According to the previously announced opening matchups, the Danes will kick off the event with a match against Eternal Fire.

 Astralis will field the following roster for BLAST Premier Fall Showdown 2022:

 Lukas "⁠gla1ve⁠" Rossander
 Andreas "⁠Xyp9x⁠" Højsleth
 Benjamin "⁠blameF⁠" Bremer
 Asger "⁠Farlig⁠" Jensen
 Mikkel "MistR" Thomsen
