Device was recently hospitalised and could not be playing for Astralis at their recent tournament visits. Ofcourse this resulted in several personalities discounting Astralis as a whole due to the lack of viable players on the team. THe lack of team chemistry meant that the Astralis roster required better firepower.
With Device being absent from the team, we saw Dupreeh step into the role of the dedicated AWP for the team. He is usually the entry fragger and transitioning into the role of an AWP definitely is something that was new for the player. He still feels he did a very good job and feels good about the entire thing.
3 days ago, we heard device wouldn't play. 3 days ago I decided to step into his shoes and pick up the AWP. Today I went up against the best AWP players in the world, on the same day. I'm still proud of what I managed to do. Ggwp @SKGaming – <3 @denniscsgod
