Astralis and dev1ce reaffirm the joint commitment and extend contract

Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz is not just an important player and culture bearer in Astralis, he constantly performs to a level that underlines his position as one of the world's absolute best in his field.

Not only has he contributed to positive results and significant progress on various world rankings, in many ways he is also Mr. Astralis and a pioneer in the team and in the organization, where his constant strive to improve himself and at the same time put the team first is a vital part of Astralis' trademark.

Astralis and "dev1ce" have chosen to reaffirm the mutual relationship until the end of 2026.

Sports Director Kasper Straube:

- Nicolai is in many ways synonymous with Astralis and the positive winning culture we work with every day. He is an extremely important part of the team and the development we are currently undertaking. He is rarely the loudest in the room, but you are never in any doubt about his commitment and in every way possible, he is a role model for his fellow players. Both on and off the server, he is a natural focal-point and his achievements speak for themselves.

- It has been important for us to show Nicolai that he is extremely valued and an important part of Astralis, and that we are very pleased with the great work he puts into the team and the organisation. I am personally incredibly happy about the joint commitment that lies in this agreement and to continue working with the development of the team, the culture, and the long-term objectives of Astralis. We are in a good place and must continue the positive development, so that we once again will position ourselves at the very top of the Counter-Strike world, Straube comments.

- I've said it before, but Astralis is my team, and I will do everything to get us back to where I feel we belong. There's a lot going on in the CS world right now, but for me it's about us thinking long-term and continuing what we've started. That is why I am extra happy about the extension, which shows how much both parties really want this.

- I'm really happy to be here and truly enjoy being part of it all. You feel a a new optimism all around the organization, and although we still have a long way to go, I am completely calm about our future prospects and the possibilities of achieving our goals. We don't set dates and number of titles, but Astralis must be where it is the most fun to play, and that is on top. I am positive we will get there, says "dev1ce".
