There is one team in CS:GO that are currently a cut above the rest; Astralis. The Danish roster look organised, disciplined, and clinical in their approach to matches, and they are being led by one Lukas ‘gla1ve’ Rossander.
It is clear that the Danes are dominating the scene, they haven’t lost a series since early May. However, what is so impressive about gla1ve, is that paramount to the recent success of Astralis, has been his ability to step up his own personal fragging performance whilst continuing to lead so proficiently. gla1ve was never a slouch in-game, but Astralis often relied on the magic of device and dupreeh, or one of Xyp9x’s timeless clutches. With gla1ve consistently hitting the top half of the scoreboard, Astralis have found a new gear, and he deservedly is our Player of the Month.

Breaking down gla1ve’s statistics
gla1ve had some stand out individual performances that display his fragging power and ability to take over games. On Inferno at the ECS Season 5 Finals, he shut down the mighty FaZe Clan by going 23-11, posting a cool 109.5 ADR, and having 14 assists. FaZe Clan have some of the world’s best aimers, yet gla1ve managed to dominate, topping the scoreboard in a 16:8 decimation. IGL’s often struggle with balancing the task of managing the team, whilst focusing on their personal game, and the fact gla1ve is capable of doing both, makes him incredibly special. If he continues to deliver, Astralis will continue to dominate the CS:GO scene.
