It has been a rocky year for Valve’s FPS Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Not only has there been a transition in competitive tournaments, but several pros have made a switch to Valorant. According to recent reports, yet another CS: GO legend is ending the year with a move to Valorant. The news comes as a shock to the community, which considers Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund to be one of the best players of all time.
He hinted towards the next step in his career last week, leaving the fans perplexed. However, just a few hours back, Christopher via a Twitter post announced his move to Valorant.
GeT_RiGhT reached his peak with Ninjas in Pyjamas, where the exemplary Swedish lineup dominated the early years of Global Offensive.
HLTV ranked Christopher as the second-best player in the world in 2010 and 2011 before he joined hands with NiP. This is where his career took a turn for the better and was ranked as the best player in the world in 2013 and 2014.
He achieved this feat also because of the unstoppable 87-map win streak in 2013. The roster continued its good form entering 2014 and bagged first place at ESL One: Cologne.
As all good things come to an end, so did NiP’s run as the roster struggled to win matches. As a result, the Swedish prodigy left the organization in September 2019 to join Dignitas, where he joined three other NiP mates, including Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg.
Dignitas had a power-packed roster, despite which the team failed to perform and meet expected standards. Alas, GeT_RiGhT was benched in September this year and has kept the community on its toes around his plans in the future. This wait clearly has come to a gloomy end when it comes to Counter-Strike.
CS: GO professionals like Spencer ‘Hiko’ Martin and Kirill ‘ANGE1’ Karasiow with years of professional experience have proven to be invaluable members for the young FPS- Valorant.
GeT_RiGhT stopped short of announcing the desired destination. Much like other CS: GO players who have made a move to Valorant, it’s safe to assume that he won’t have a tough time finding a home for himself.
