Gla1ve Takes On The Role Of An Assistant Coach

The 25-year-old Dane who is not yet completely back to playing the game competitively has joined the rest of the team, and despite not being a part of the active lineup he is contributing to the team’s recent success at the ESL One Cologne 2020 by taking on the role of an Assistant Coach.

The information was revealed by gla1ve himself in a recent video by Astralis in which he states that “So my role right now because I am not playing with the team, I am trying to help Danny as much with being like his assistant coach. So, I am trying to contribute with my knowledge into the team and I am not making new tactics for them but I am just trying to fix small details in the system and in the game.”

He further revealed that he currently just sits in the server and spectates along with Danny while the rest of the team plays, pointing out where things can be improved and in a way helping out his own game as well.

Other things discussed in the video include gla1ve talking about how they can learn something from the new talents, improving his own game, and his return to playing with the team. He goes on to thank all his fans and supporters for their wishes while he was out of the action and it might not be long before we see the daunting IGL leading the pack once again.
