At the end of May, the Danish player retired to the inactivity to solve problems with emotional burnout and stress. Now his place in starting five of Astralis is occupied by Patrick "es3tag" Hansen, at that Lucas "Bubzkji" Andersen also remains in the reserve.
The first tournament for Xyp9x will be BLAST Premier Fall Series 2020, where Astralis will play in Group B against G2, NiP and FaZe from November 2-4. In this way, the Danish team will lose 20% RMR points due to the absence of Hoyslet at the qualifying for the Major Event DreamHack Open Fall 2020.

Patrick "es3tag" Hansen
