Lukas “gla1ve” Rossander is returning to the starting lineup for Astralis’ Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team.
The in-game leader, who was on paternity leave for the past few weeks, will replace Lucas “Bubzkji” Andersen at the PGL Major Stockholm. The $2 million event begins Oct. 26 with the Challengers stage.
“(Coach Danny “zonic” Sorensen) and I have had a good talk with Lucas around the decision,” Astralis’ director of sports Kasper Hvidt said. “He is disappointed, but he also knows he is a big part of the team, and he will give his best to help out. I have tremendous respect for a player and person like Lucas, however, we will always set the team we believe has the best chances to go all the way.”
gla1ve, 26, posted on social media Saturday that baby Milas was born.
Meet Milas ??, our little badboy who came to the world yesterday morning.
Both him and my girlfriend did amazing, and I am so happy that everything is fine.

Astralis’ PGL Major Stockholm roster will consist of Denmark natives gla1ve, Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen, Andreas “Xyp9x” Hojsleth, Emil “Magisk” Reif and Philip “Lucky” Ewald.
Bubzkji, a 23-year-old from Denmark, shared his thoughts about the final roster on Twitter.
“I am devastated to be left out, after being there to qualify,” he wrote. “Losing out on my first major and not being able to play in front of a ‘home’ crowd hurts. But sadly there’s only 5 spots. I felt things individually was moving in the right direction towards the end.”
