Astralis coach: "I believe Buzz will make a real difference"

Astralis coach Peter "casle" Ardenskjold shared his opinion on the signing of Christian "Buzz" Andersen in a comment to the club's press service. The specialist is positive that the 19-year-old rookie will help the team improve its results.

casle assured that Buzz fully meets the specific requirements that Astralis had for the candidacy of the fifth player.

In the work to revitalize the team, it has been obvious that while we have some extremely skilled and experienced players, who, on their best days, reach an extraordinarily high level, we have also seen that we still have some shortcomings. We took MistR in as a stand-in and he has shown us a lot of his potential. I am sure, he will continue his development, and he is a player who will for sure be playing on a higher level at some point. It is a positive story and part of the cohesion between talents and the first team, we will be working with in the future.

In relation to the specific role on the team, we have some very specific requirements and have kept an eye on Buzz for a long time. He has some extraordinary qualities, and the deeper we got into the work with the new set-up, the clearer it became to me that Buzz not only has a lot of the energy and attitude we are looking for he also has the qualities to give the team a real boost. I believe Buzz will make a real difference.

The work with the organization around the team continues in the management, but since I started, we have already brought in both dev1ce and Buzz, and although you can't compare, they are both dream signings for me. We now have the roster in place, and I am really looking forward to working with the team in the new set-up, which is currently being finalized, says the coach.

Buzz, who Astralis acquired from MASONIC, completed the Danish giant's roster for the next year. The debut of the revamped team is expected to take place at the end of January at BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023, which has not yet been announced.
