CSGO Player Xyp9x Will Take Break from Astralis

Andreas 'Xyp9x' Højsleth has announced that he will take a break from CSGO and will leave Astralis because of burnout and stress. Højsleth posted the news on TwitLonger and posted a repost on Twitter.

The article "My situation" explains why he decided to take a vacation. Højsleth talks about the stress he's been through and mentions that it's time for him to take care of his health. He ends the note and thanks everyone for their support.

“Unfortunately, I have felt burnout / stress symptoms for many months. It is time to take the necessary break to rest and find the motivation to fight for Astralis again. Everyone around me has done a great number of things to avoid this and there is nothing I would rather do than keep on playing but it is time to take care of my health and that is why I have given in a sick message to Astralis.

“I really want to say a big thank you to my team-mates, the Astralis organization and everyone around me who really supported me during this time. I do not know when I will compete again, but I hope that my fans will understand because this was a very difficult decision for me. "

This is the second Astralis player to announce his vacation. Their leader, Lukas 'gla1ve' Rossander, gave the same reasons for his break a few weeks ago. With core players leaving the game indefinitely, Astralis scored a goal.

The departure of two big stars in such a short time raises serious questions. However, the main concern remains the well-being of the players, and hopefully Astralis will find a strategy.

CSGO champion Astralis brings Marco 'Snappi' Pfeiffer

Snappi will switch to Astralis for the upcoming games as Patrick 'es3tag' Hensen will not join the CSGO team until July. Snappi last played in April when he was at Heroic. The Danish player has been part of some big names over the years and is now ready to play for ESL One Champions Astralis.

Snappi is likely to debut with the rest of the team at the BLAST Premier League showdown on June 1. He only signed a short-term contract because Astralis only sees him as a replacement until Hansen has completed his move. It will be exciting to see how the 29-year-old settles in his new CSGO team in the midst of all crises.
