LOMME joins Astralis as CS:GO analyst

Frederik “LOMME” Nielsen has joined Astralis as an analyst for their CS:GO roster.

The former professional player joins fellow veteran Alexander “ave” Holdt on the team’s staff. Earlier this month, Holdt became the team’s head coach. Now with the addition of LOMME, Astralis hopes to elevate their CS:GO performance.

“We’re in the process of upgrading our organization surrounding the Counter-Strike team,” announced Astralis’ Director of Sports Kasper Hvidt. “And one of the ways we’re doing this is bringing in LOMME.”

LOMME’s signing comes after multiple changes for Astralis after they failed to qualify for the PGL Stockholm Major.

The new Astralis roster made its debut this past week at the $425,000 BLAST Premier Fall Final in Copenhagen, Denmark. While Astralis fell to Vitality, they still placed 3rd in the tournament.
