Despite the upcoming PGL Major being based in Copenhagen, the Danish esports organisation Astralis will not be attending and competing in the tournament after it failed to qualify for it. This has led Astralis to make some serious changes to its Counter-Strike 2 team, including the benching of its in-game leader and the intent to sell the player to another organisation.

Benjamin "blameF" Bremer has been removed from the active line-up, and as for who is being looked at as his replacement, Astralis has simply stated that will be announced shortly.

Speaking about the change, Astralis director of sports, Kasper Staube has added, "We have to acknowledge that we haven't succeeded with him in the role of IGL as there is a mismatch in profiles and roles that everyone has been working to resolve. Unfortunately, we have never achieved the stability required to compete at the highest level, and after thorough analysis and discussions with all involved parties, the conclusion is clear".

BlameF also commented on the decision, "Naturally I'm disappointed to be leaving Astralis and a team I hoped to bring back to the top. I've truly enjoyed my time here and can only speak positively about my teammates and all the great people who work tirelessly to support the team in any way possible."
