Xyp9x Returns to Astralis After Taking a Break

In hopes of CS:GO and esports returning to normalcy in 2021 amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Astralis is looking to return to form and regain the status as the No. 1 team in Counter-Strike. It will take some time and adjusting, and the team figuring out how to use the seven-man roster.

Even with the world seemingly waiting for the pandemic to slow down, multiple brands in CS:GO are making moves like Cloud9 and Team Liquid.
