Astralis CEO Anders Hersholt commented on the latest CS: GO roster results. He also noted that maintaining a high place in the HLTV.org rating is not a priority for the organization.
CEO of Astralis: “Rating is not our priority, but it is always a good indicator. We were unable to qualify for the BLAST Spring Finals and performed poorly at DreamHack Masters, but this should not come as a surprise since we did not plan to play these tournaments with two new players. What have we learned from this? The team remained calm, the players gave all their best and helped beginners to get comfortable.
Astralis is built on victories, and without them we cannot be satisfied. But the whole organization is proud of how the guys continue to fight, despite the circumstances. We will be back winners, but it will take some time. “
On June 5, Astralis lost to mousesports in the quarter-finals of the BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 Showdown and finished the tournament 7-8. On June 9, the team lost control of Ninjas in Pajamas at DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 and left the competition.
The creative director of the league FLASHPOINT (CS: GO) and journalist Duncan Thorin Shields again criticized the Astralis Group. He called management greedy and was not thrilled with Jacob JUGI Hansen’s play. The Briton made a complaint on Twitter.
Thorin: “I would call JUGI a disgrace to Astralis, but soon this tag will be associated only with corruption, greed and failure of management”
Earlier, the British criticized the decision of the Astralis Group to take a share of the CS: GO roster: for example, this rule does not apply to the League of Legends roster. Shields also called it a “shame” that Danny zonic Sorensen’s wards themselves defended the club.
JUGI made his debut for Astralis in mid-May and spent eight matches for her.
