In den heutigen News geht es um FaZe, warum verlassen sie WESA? Und der neue Stand-In Spieler von Astralis.
FaZe verlässt WESA
Wir haben euch bereits im Vorfeld über das mögliche Ausscheiden von FaZe, aus dem WESA-Verband berichtet. Nun haben sich die Gerüchte bestätigt. FaZe wird WESA verlassen. Allerdings stimmt es nicht, dass der Clan eine Strafe zu zahlen hat, weil er den Verband verlässt. Außerdem versicherte die ESL dem Team, dass sie weiterhin auf alle ESL-Events eingeladen werden.
What is not true is that a team that wants to leave will have to pay a penalty. WESA would never penalize organizations for having a difference of opinion and they respect our decision. Finally, WESA and ESL are two different organizations. ESL has been good to us, showed understanding and assured us that even if we aren’t in WESA, we’ll be invited to their leagues and tournaments. In other words: We are leaving on good terms.

Astralis: Stand-In für ESL Cologne 2016
We're adding @wolves_gla1ve as our fifth for the ESL Cologne Major.

Vor kurzem haben wir euch über den Wechsel von von René “cajunb” Borg und Markus “Kjaerbye” Kjærbye zwischen Astralis und Team Dignitas berichtet. Nun hat Astralis für das kommende Major-Event einen Stand-In gefunden: Lukas ‘gla1ve’ Rossander von Copenhagen Wolves.
With the addition of Markus ‘Kjaerbye’ Kjærbye to the team and the transfer of René ‘cajunb’ Borg to Team Dignitas, we have been looking for a fifth player to play with us in the ESL Cologne Major.
I feel confident that gla1ve is the right fit for us. I know that he is good at adapting to new roles and he has a high skill ceiling. He will bring some experience to the table as well and if I know him right, he will do everything in his power, to show that he is still a top class player.
To get the best possible preparation with him, we have decided to take a bootcamp before the Major starts to integrate him in our team and play style. The overall goal for the Major is to secure the Top 8 position and Legends status for the next Major; everything beyond that is just icing on the cake. I hope our fans will understand the situation we are in and help support Lukas and us through the event!
Finn ‘karrigan’ Andersen
It’s an amazing chance for me. I’ve been to several Majors before, but it has been a while since the last time and both Esport and CounterStrike have evolved amazingly since then. I’m like a kid in a candy shop [laughs]. I’m really honored to be picked out to play with these guys. I have played with Finn [karrigan] before, but I don’t know the other three guys, so I’m just looking forward to playing with them.
Lukas ‘gla1ve’ Rossander
It’s been a pleasure working alongside Henning from Copenhagen Wolves to secure this two week deal with gla1ve. We’re grateful they are allowing one of their players to help us out when in need. It’s a big chance for gla1ve to show what he can do at the absolute top level and I’m looking very much forward to see what he can bring to the team.
So wird vermutlich das Line Up von Astralis für die ESL One Cologne 2016 aussehen.
- Finn “Karrigan” Andersen
- Nicolai “dev1ce” Reedtz
- Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen
- Andreas “Xyp9x” Højsleth
- Lukas “gla1ve” Rossander (Stand-In)
