Astralis has bolstered its CS:GO roster with the signing of 18-year-old Philip “Fortunate” Ewald, the Danish esports group announced today.
The group is engaged on “growing” gamers with the aim to “continuously progress,” according to Astralis’ director of sports Kasper Hvidt. The addition of a “younger, energetic, and intensely expert participant” like Fortunate is part of this “technique.”
The AWPer and former Tricked Esport participant has proven “immense potential” within the fringes of the scene, said Hvidt. He hasn’t been examined at a “top-level” but however he has a “lot” of what Astralis is searching for.
“For those who take a look at [Lucky’s] stats it’s not a thriller why so many groups have been watching him,” said Hvidt. “His method and sport sense will contribute to the group and create new room for the opposite gamers.”
Fortunate will be part of the group as a sixth-man and might be an energetic a part of the roster from “day one.” With Lukas ‘gla1ve’ Rossander expecting his first child later this yr, the addition of Fortunate may “show advantageous,” said Hvidt.
“When Astralis comes knocking, every thing adjustments,” Lucky said in a press release. “It’s certainly probably the most skilled organizations and I already really feel welcome and a part of the household.”
“I do know some persons are going to check me to ‘dev1ce’ however nobody can do what he does, Lucky added. “I hope I’ll have the ability to present who I’m, although, and I’ll work arduous to contribute to the group in my very own approach.”
The group will be part of forces as a six-man roster on Aug. 9.
Tricked and Astralis have agreed to not touch upon the worth of the switch.
