Astralis’ full lineup is comprised of ex-TSM players and used to be one of the best teams in the world winning many tournaments. They have been playing fairly well as of late taking out six of their last nine games with some wins over strong teams. However they are coming into this tournament under some scrutiny as to whether their players can still pull their a game when it matters most.
The Verdict: Same line up under a new name in with a strong chance.
Player to watch:
dupreeh has been one of if not the biggest stars for TSM and now Astralis. He is really good at getting frags and his aim is one of the best in all of CS:GO and if he can get his aim on point and really get huge scores it will give Astralis a decent chance at getting far in this tournament.
dupreeh (entry fragger)
cajunb (awper / can rifle)
dev1ce (awper/ rifler)
Xyp9x (support fragger)
karrigan (in game leader)
