Astralis stands victorious on the first day of IEM Katowice with a steady 2-0 win against Cloud9.

Nicolai 'dev1ce' Reedtz was more than ready for the match, putting up 50 frags total across the two maps played. 

Nicolai 'dev1ce' Reedtz had all the reasons to smile after his performance in Astralis' opening match.

Nicolai 'dev1ce' Reedtz, Astralis:

- We had a slow start on the first map but the fact that we came back and won convincingly on their map pick is something we’re very pleased with.

- The second map got a little close but we never felt like we were losing control. We had cool, calm communications and helped each other. This is the reason I'm able to have such a great series. I'm very happy with both my own performance and my team. We have some stuff we need to work on, but for now, we’re very happy starting out the tournament with a 2-0.

Astralis will play again tomorrow against Vitality for a spot in the playoffs and the grande Spodek Arena.
