The situation has led to a bit of tension within the organization and is having a direct impact on its performance also. With the current plans of the team seeming very uncertain and with Astralis needing to attain stability being closer to the end of the season, gla1ve spoke about his next three-year plan with the organization.

I mean of course, I want to get back and win a Major. So that is one of my goals for sure. My goal is also to bring Astralis back to being the number one team in the world at some point in time. I am not sure how fast I can do it, but I will do it as fast as I can, and I will try to work as hard as possible to get to that goal. I did it with my old team and all of my teammates, and hopefully I think I can do it again.
