Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjaerbye has left Astralis and joined North.

Both North and Astralis departed the ELEAGUE Major: Boston 2018 prior to the Top 8. During the event, Kjaerbye posted an 0.88 K/D Ratio and landed 49.2 per cent headshots.

North has had a busy week, making a number of roster moves following the Major's conclusion. They benched René "cajunb" Borg and called up Daniel "mertz" Mertz from their academy roster on Monday and on Tuesday announced that they'd be benching Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke for "personal reasons."

Astralis took to Instragram to thank Kjaerbye for his time with the organization and wish him luck with North.

North also released a Youtube video on Friday to celebrate the transaction.
