If you ask a random CS:GO spectator what team is the best in the world right now, chances will be high that they’ll respond with “Astralis of course!”.
Even though it’s easy nowadays for eSports betting fans to make their picks, this wasn’t always the case (when it comes to Astralis).
When they first started playing eSports, they weren’t nearly as good as they are. Here’s a brief look into their history!

Astralis’ first season was a bleak one. A couple of good finishes but mostly ending up from positions 5 to 8. At the end of the year, however, things started to change. People finally saw the real Astralis; one that would go on to lead the way in just 2 years time.
After winning the eSports Championship Series Season 2 by beating OpTic Gaming, Astralis went on to win the eLeague Major: Atlanta 2017 and IEM XI – World Championship. Unfortunately this streak wouldn’t last. It would take until 2018 for them to absolutely explode.
I’m just going to list their tournament wins here because nothing else needs to be said:
DreamHack Masters Marseille 2018, ESL Pro League Season 7, eSports Championship Series Season 5, eLeague CS:GO Premier 2018, FACEIT Major: London 2018, BLAST Pro Series: Istanbul 2018, and IEM XIII – Chicago.
