Astralis re-signs Danish CS2 prodigy as dev1ce moves to IGL role Dot Esports

A day after benching BlameF and replacing its CS2 coach, Astralis brought back a former player and moved dev1ce to in-game leading duties.

The organization has acquired Alexander “br0” Bro from Monte. This means the 21-year-old CS2 prodigy is returning to Astralis after being in the international squad for eight months. But br0 isn’t taking the mantle of IGL left by benched blameF. The team’s AWPer, dev1ce, is transitioning to the role instead.

“Our top priority has been to find a player who can step into the team and create space for the other four to move into their favorite positions. He [br0] was the first player we identified who has the level and fits perfectly into the role,” Astralis sports director Kasper Straube said following the moves.

When it comes to dev1ce’s new role, it turns out the experienced star had already been calling from time to time. “I’ve always been the secondary caller and right-hand man for both Lukas and Benja… it’s a good time for me to go this way,” he said.

These sudden roster changes follow Astralis’ failed attempt to qualify for the PGL CS2 Copenhagen Major, scheduled to start on March 17. The Danish superteam went 2-3 in the European RMR B before losing to 9 Pandas in the Last Chance Qualifier. Besides benching blameF and re-signing br0, the org also acquired a new coach, ruggah.

After failing to qualify for Copenhagen Major, this is Astralis’ third major they’ve missed in a row. With the scene focused on the Danish event, the big test for Astralis will be at IEM Chengdu on April 8.
