What Lucky Has To Say

“I have really enjoyed my time in Tricked and I have a lot to thank them for." Said Lucky, giving his thoughts on the transfer. "When Astralis comes knocking, everything changes, though. It’s without a doubt one of the most professional organizations and I already feel welcome and part of the family.”

Lucky will face a new challenge at Astralis but the young player feels enthusiastic about it. “I have a lot to learn at Astralis. From their extensive playbook to everything going on outside the game. It will be a new feeling to be at a place where people have strong opinions about everything we do, but I’m super excited to get started.”

He also mentioned that the fan base will try to compare him to Nicolai “dev1ce” Reedtz, former main awper of Astralis. However, Lucky was quick to explain that he can never do what dev1ce has done in his time with the Danish giants. Instead, the young talent is confident in his own style of play and wants to show who he really is.

Astralis and Tricked have not disclosed the transfer amount of Lucky’s contract which starts from August 1.
