We're about to tell you a wild story in very few words, so get seated. This will be faster than phoon coming out of ivy.
Astralis re-introduced 6 man lineups in April by picking up es3tag, then got decimated to four players when gla1ve and Xyp9x went on medical leave in quick succession. They picked up JUGi and Snappi, let Snappi go, and are now targeting Bubzkji from MAD Lions according to HLTV. Aaaand breathe.
Are you confused? So are we.
We're not math-geniuses but including their two players on medical leave, Astralis will now have 8 players on contract. Asking your employees to cut wages and then adding three additional headcounts is not how we envisioned the first public traded esports team.
Don't get us wrong, we love Bubzkji. He's exciting to watch and one of Denmark's best players, but leave some talent for the rest of Denmark. aizyesque says pretty please.
