Astralis will be utilizing two of their newest additions in the upcoming ESL One Cologne event. Patrick “es3tag” Hansen and Lucas “Bubzkji” Andersen are set to make their debut as members of Astralis at the $325,000 tournament.
With Lukas “gla1ve” Rossander and Andreas “Xyp9x” Højsleth still sitting out, it will be up to the two new players to step in and show they were worth the pickup. Since gla1ve served as in the in-game leader for the Danish side, it will be Emil “Magisk” Reif who will continue to hold the reigns until his return.
Magisk & Xyp9x have been out of the lineup since they stepped away due to burnout symptoms.
fnatic will be the first team that meets this new Astralis lineup in Group B at 12:30 ET on Tuesday, August 18th.
