device on IGL role: It motivates me insanely

Astralis will continue their journey with their most prolific player as the leader of the team.

With Benjamin "blameF" Bremer’s benching yesterday, the role of an in-game leader was vacant for Astralis. Most people had expected that Astralis would pick up one of the many experienced Danish in-game leaders, but instead, the Danish organization chose another route selecting their AWP’er Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz as the new IGL.

- I've always been the secondary caller and right-hand man for both Lukas and Benja, so when there was a change underway, it naturally came up in the team if I could see myself taking the lead as IGL. It's obviously a very different role to be the IGL with more responsibility both on and off the server, but it's a good time for me to go this way. I also see it as an opportunity to do even more of what I love most in the world, playing CS at the highest level for much longer, Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz stated in a press release from Astralis.

In Counter-Strike today we already have several AWP’ers as in-game leaders. Casper 'cadiaN' Møller and Dzhami "Jame" Ali are some of the most successful in the business. Being an IGL can also prolong an otherwise short career, which Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz also mentions as a good reason for him to step up to the role.

- It motivates me insanely because I don't just intend to continue this for a couple of years – it's my lifelong dream to play CS! Stepping into a new chapter in my career really excites me, and it's a role I see myself in for many years to come.  The hardest thing for me is to ask Astralis fans for patience because they have really been patient for the past 3 years. That's also why I'm fully committed, and although it's new, it's also in many ways a continuation of my own development.

Astralis will start the practice with the new setup on Friday, where their new fifth player Alexander "br0" Bro will join the team alongside their new coach Casper "ruggah" Due.
