Buzz: "My goal is to prove that I am good enough to play at tier 1 level"

Christian "Buzz" Andersen, who recently joined Astralis, shared in an interview to the club's press service his expectations for his first tournament in the new team, which will be BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023. The 19-year-old Dane hopes to prove that he is able to play at the level of the best players in the world.

I feel good about the work we have done. We have worked hard and gotten a lot out of the time we've had to practice. It'll be exciting to play in a Tier 1 tournament, but I feel well-prepared and confident. I'm definitely excited about the game, and we'll see how it goes. I'm ready.

My goal is to prove that I am good enough to play at this level and to demonstrate everything we've been working on at practice. In terms of the result, my goal is to win the tournament, but I would also be satisfied with advancing to the Spring Final since we haven't had that much time to practice.

BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023 will run from January 19 to 29 with twelve partner teams of the tournament operator in the participants' list. The squads will battle out six tickets to BLAST Premier Spring Final 2023 and a prize pool of $177,000.

At the upcoming BLAST championship, Astralis will compete in Group A, where Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander and company will face Vitality, Heroic and Evil Geniuses.
