It is unclear the reason for this benching, but Daniel Vorborg, Head of Esports at Copenhagen Flames, said that they would release the details soon.
Here is his statement regarding the change:
We will be moving Asger "AcilioN" Larsen out of the starting lineup from today. At this point in time, we cannot disclose the reasons for the this decision. We put an emphasis on being open and honest with our fans and followers, so we are working hard on being able to disclose the reasons as soon as possible. For now we can only comment on the effects this move will have on our roster. Asger has been our captain on and off the server, constantly pushing the team to strive for more. As our in-game leader he also had a huge role to play in our in-game communications, and it's definitely a big task for the rest of the team to fill his shoes, however I do expect our team to be able to lift that task together.
