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.

CS: GO community excited to hear about his plans in the future

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.
