I'm being told Astralis will look to replace Karrigan in the coming days/weeks. Look to Gla1ve as the candidate to step in, per sources.

Astralis definitely have been in an elongated slump in the recent weeks. While we do not know the source and the reason for their extended poor performance it is a fact that they have not been winning matches. If this rumor is to be true, it could pave a way for the Danish team to rise to glory again. Karrigan has been continuously critiqued for his poor performances on 1v1 situations. His AWP is really fascinating to watch on Mirage, however on most of the other maps Karrigan pales when in comparison to his team mates.
If this does hold true, it might create a situation where Astralis do not retain their Legends status. Dupreeh does not have the legend status as he was ill during the last Major.
