Snappi temporarily replaces Xyp9x in Astralis ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Today Astralis announced the temporary departure of talented Rifler, Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth, who requires some downtime as he's been dealing with stress symptoms for months now. Heroic's Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer will be taking his place for the time being.

Before this move, Snappi has sat on Heroic's bench since April after a deal with FunPlus Phoenix to acquire the roster fell through. According to a DBLTAP report, Snappi and Owen "smooya" Butterfield have been in talks with Chinese esports organization, TIGER, but with his current move to Astralis, there's no telling how that deal will play out.

Here’s the current Astralis’s roster:

  • Nicolai "device" Reedtz

  • Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen

  • Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer (stand-in)

  • Emil "Magisk" Reif

  • Jakob "JUGi" Hansen

  • Danny "zonic" Sørensen (coach)

  • Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander (on leave)

  • Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth (on leave)

Patrick "es3tag" Hansen will be joining Astralis by the end of June when his contract with Heroic ends, which could be when Snappi leaves the Danish team.
