Lucas “Bubzkji” Andersen has officially joined Astralis CS:GO’s roster.
The former MAD Lions player has joined the superstar team, replacing Jakob “JUGi” Hansen who joined earlier this year as a substitute.
Bubzkji is the seventh player on the team, after they picked up Patrick “es3tag” Hansen as a sixth member back in March.
Speaking about the acquisition, Bubzkji said: “When I heard about Astralis’ interest, I already made up my mind: I want to be a part of this team and this organisation and this is where I want to play!
“I had other options, but after talking to ‘zonic’ and Kasper about the role I will have, theamibitons of the team, and how they work I am convinced I can contribute to the team and I can become a better player.”
Speaking about his departure, JUGi said: “Of course, I am disappointed, but I also respect the decision and I am glad I had the chance to play for Astralis.
“They are great teammates with an organisation around them who does everything to make players feel good. With the outlook to play a different role than I where feel most comfortable, though, it is better for me to move on.
“I am convinced I could have done more here and I am confident I can contribute to any team. The stay here has only confirmed for me, this is what I want to do and I look forward to playing for another team.”
Astralis has previously stated how they’re hoping to build a 10-man roster, which includes an Academy roster so they can easily replace main roster players if they take a break.
The team currently has seven players, consisting of Bubzkji, es3tag, Emil “Magisk” Reif, Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen, Nicolai “dev1ce” Reedtz, Lucas “gla1ve” Rossander and Andreas “Xyp9x” Hojsleth.
