MagiFelix To Stay On Board – Nukeduck Released
Astralis and Felix ‘MagiFelix’ Boström have extended the contract for the remainder of 2021.
At the same time, Astralis and Erlend ‘Nukeduck’ Holm, who has been out of the team for personal reasons since February 8, have agreed to terms for an immediate termination of the contract.
Kasper Hvidt, Director of Sports at Astralis Group:
- First of all, we want to thank Erlend for his time with us and his efforts to help the team and the organization. He was a part of the original roster and stayed on the team for this season but had to take a step back earlier this year. It was his and our wish to find a solution, giving him the time and possibility to make the right decision regarding his next move, and I am glad we have come to an agreement, letting Erlend do exactly that under optimal conditions. We wish Erlend all the best of luck with his future endeavours.
- When Erlend stepped back, we were very lucky that Felix was able to join us on short notice. As we did not have time to do the normal vetting, we agreed to a short-term contract to make sure it was a good fit for both parties. Since day one, he has shown much of what we are looking for in an Astralis player on and off the server, and I am glad we have now agreed to continue the relationship for the remainder of 2021. I look forward to continuing working with Felix and believe we will see his full potential over the coming months, as he is fully integrated to the team and our ways of working with our players.
After finishing 9th in the Spring Split, the team will start the preparations for the Summer Split.
