The Danish esports organisation, Astralis, has announced that it is making some serious changes to its women's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team, and will be releasing all of its current members except for team captain Aurora "aurora" Lyngdal.

As for why Astralis is doing this, the team has announced that it is rebuilding around a team of young talent with the "ultimate aim to be a part of the world elite".

Speaking about the decision, Astralis' director of sports, Kasper Hvidt stated: "We will present a team that, in addition to team captain Aurora Lyngdal, will consist of young, talented Danish players with great potential and a desire to be part of Astralis with all that it entails. The goal is to develop a team that can compete at the top level over the coming years. For now, the focus will be to gather a team that, along with the coach and the organization, can build on the Astralis culture, which is about much more than just playing and winning matches."

As for when this team will be unveiled, we're told that Astralis will present it in the summer so that it can compete in the Impact League in August.
