Xyp9x leaves Astralis

The Clutch Minister has left Astralis after more than seven years at the Organization.

The longest-standing member of Astralis, Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth has parted ways with the Danish organization.

In a post on Twitter, Astralis writes:

Thank you, Xyp9x. Today we bid farewell to a legend as we are parting ways with Andreas “Xyp9x” Højsleth, who will soon be taking on a new challenge. As a founding member, Andreas is a vital part of the team that forever changed Counter-Strike through a new vision for the game and how it is played, and with 4 Majors and 24 major LAN trophies he is one of the most winning players ever. It is not only on the server and in the statistics, though, Andreas has made his mark and a real difference. He has always been there for the fans, to his team-mates he has been a rock, and to Astralis.. He is family.

We are proud to have been a part of your amazing journey, Andreas, and we can’t wait to see how you will grow even further as a part of the Counter-Strike scene.

On behalf of everyone in Astralis

Thank you

813 clutches

Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth was demoted to the Astralis Talent team in April 2023 after a trophyless dry spell that is still ongoing. Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth became famous for his numerous clutches for Astralis during their rise to the top of CS:GO. Despite a year out of competition, Xyp9x is still ranked third in the world for most clutches (813) in competitive matches in CS:GO and CS2.

On his own Twitter, Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth made this statement:

- After eight unforgettable years, I find myself at a bittersweet crossroad. This journey has been life-defining, exceeding my wildest dreams. From our shared victories to the unbreakable bound we’ve forged, Astralis has been my home and my heart.

As I embark on a new project filled with promise and potential, I carry with me the same excitement and anticipation as when I first joined this organization. Thank you for everything, and I look forward to the next chapter with great anticipation.
