On the first day of our new roster featuring k0nfig, blameF, and coach ave, the team has gone 2-0 against NIP in their opening match at BLAST Fall Finals.
After starting on Astralis' home turf, Nuke, the team went 8-7 on the t-side, giving some breathing room to continue the momentum on the defensive. Here, Astralis picked up the pace, finishing the first map 16-7, with k0nfig topfragging.
After a brief pause, the Danish and Swedish teams picked up their guns again, this time on NIP-picked Overpass. Here, k0nfig provided a satisfactory 30-bomb, making NIP fear his every move, while blameF kept NIP on their feet by lurking and surprising the enemies at every corner.
After a very back and forth game of Overpass, the game went into overtime. Astralis saw three rounds in a row on a dominant T-side, finally winning the match 19-16.
