As stated multiple times by Esprts, Astralis have been in a rut over the past few months. The performance of the team has been underwhelming. They have not been able to win many tournaments of late and have even been losing to lower tier teams.
This has prompted a roster change within the team. They have decided to bench Karrigan and brought some fresh blood into the competitive scene. Notan1dgl will be replacing Karrigan on the team effective immediately. According to device, the addition of Notan1dgl is temporary.
