Danish entry fragger and AWPer k0nfig parts ways with Complexity Gaming amid reports about a potential move to Astralis next year.
According to an earlier report, k0nfig was not keen on renewing his contract with Complexity which allegedly expires on 1st January 2022.
K0nfig is currently undergoing rehab for an injured right wrist and has been out of action since after the summer player break.

The injured Danish rifler Kristian "⁠k0nfig⁠" Wienecke parted ways with Complexity Gaming yesterday on 7th October. The move comes after the organization failed to qualify for the upcoming PGL Major Stockholm 2021 and amid circulating reports about his potential move to Astralis after his contract expires.

The 24-year-old has been out of action since IEM Cologne 2021 which took place in early July. He was supposed to play with Complexity after the summer player break, but broke and dislocated his right wrist just a few days before ESL Pro League Season 14 was scheduled to start. This resulted in k0nfig being out of action for the last three months.

However, the talented entry fragger seems to have caught Astralis' attention who are about to undergo a few changes towards the end of 2021.

K0nfig leaves Complexity amid reports of Astralis showing an interest in him

The talented entry fragger who is also lethal with the big green, k0nfig, has announced his departure from Complexity Gaming. The organization has already been operating without him since after the player break, during which reports had broken out claiming that he was not keen on renewing his contract with the organization, allegedly bound to expire on 1st January 2022.

Multiple players who are currently on Astralis' active CS:GO roster like Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen, Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth, and Emil "Magisk" Reif, including their head coach Danny "zonic" Sørensen will become free agents at the end of 2021. With their futures uncertain and some of them being open to offers, the future of the Danish organization is uncertain.

This aligns well with k0nfig's arrival as Astralis are planning on undergoing a massive revamp for the next competitive season. A few players that have already been booked by the organization are,

  • Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander - IGL

  • Lucas "Bubzkji" Andersen - Rifler

  • Philip "Lucky" Ewald - AWPer

BlameF's message to k0nfig

Also, this is not the first time that Astralis has shown an interest in signing k0nfig. According to zonic's book 'The Brain Behind Astralis' back in 2018, Astralis were interested in signing k0nfig as a replacement for Markus "⁠Kjaerbye⁠" Kjærbye, before they went ahead with Magisk, a decision they certainly do not regret.

The injury is close to a complete recovery as per the most recent update provided by the player himself. After having undergone a surgery and wearing a cast for almost a month, k0nfig now just has to undergo a few more weeks of rehabilitation to recover completely.
