Astralis Talent sign Alexander 'Altekz' Givskov
Astralis Talent is set to release Mathias 'R0nic' Pinholt and signs with 17 year old Alexander 'Altekz' Givskov who joins the team on a transfer from MASONIC.
The roster change will take effect on April 1, 2021.
Dennis 'VNG' Vang, Head of Talent, Counter-Strike:
- Our talent programme and the way we work with the individual players is deeply rooted in the culture of Astralis. In some ways it can be quite demanding and when working with younger players, we need to always have an eye on the players’ well-being. 'R0nic' is a hard-working, passionate, and very skilled player, who will flourish in the right context, but we believe he will have a better chance in another set-up.
- I have great confidence in Mathias and I am sure, he will do everything for the team in the coming matches and show how good a player he is.
Dennis Vang on Alexander 'Altekz' Givskov:
- Alexander will join us in 3 weeks and my focus right now is our upcoming bootcamp and matches, and I want the players to keep that focus as well. What I can say, though, is that we see Alexander as a rare, natural In-Game Leader, who is also delivering in his present role as a support player, and I look forward to working with him when that time comes.
Besides Alexander 'Altekz' Givskov, Mikkel 'MistR' Thomsen is set to join the Astralis Talent roster this summer, completing the 6 man roster.
