GeT_RiGhT: "It meant the world to me knowing that I could still put up a big game and do everything for my team"

July 22nd, 2018 23:17

To finalize our coverage of the Europe Minor, we interviewed one of the winners, Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund, about NiP making it through to the first stage of the Major.

GeT_RiGhT discussed a variety of topics in our interview with him at the end of the Europe Minor, where NiP came out victorious after defeating ENCE in the consolidation final, securing their place in the New Challengers Stage, before besting OpTic in the grand final.

GeT_RiGhT explained just how much making it through means to him and NiP

The Swedish veteran shared it all when it comes to what it means for him, personally, to get over that hurdle for the first time since NiP failed to make it past the ELEAGUE Major Main Qualifier at the end of 2016.

The 28-year-old also discussed Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson's new role as an in-game leader and his impact on their result at the Europe Minor before closing out with some final thoughts on how NiP are going to spend the break ahead of DreamHack Masters Stockholm and, naturally, the FACEIT Major.

After you qualified, we could see that you were getting a little emotional, so tell me about that moment, how much this means to you, personally, and the team.

I think it means more to me than everyone else in the team, mostly because of all the comments about me. I've seen them, I've read them, I haven't commented so much on them because I tried to block myself out of it. I don't really use my social media anymore mostly because of it, because every time I go into it, there is a lot of hate. It can go to the point when it's fine, people can complain about me, about my game and everything, but I can't hold on and keep doing it, be more social, when there are a lot of death threats against me and my family and friends. That's the boiling point.

I've been playing a long time, I've had this issue before, as well, when I was very successful, but eventually, a guy like me or someone is going to crack. And that crack can become even bigger. Like I said, I'm fine getting a lot of hate for my play, but I don't ever get into the hate when they actually want to me to die, or something like that, that's over the top.

After the game, I felt very emotional, there was a big weight on my shoulders that just disappeared. I've been grinding so hard for this tournament, I've been staying up late, putting in the hours, I've been dragging myself every day, I even slept worse because I needed to play more. I've been just thinking about CS, I've just been watching demos, playing deathmatch, bots, I've been doing everything that every professional should be doing, but I've been putting in even more, I've been sitting here wanting to play more and more and more and more and more.

And it felt like that weight I had before, because I've done it a couple of times in the last two years and it hasn't given any success back, and this was the first time in maybe one and a half years that it actually gave back to me, and I was so happy about it. It really meant the world to me knowing that I could still put up a big game and I can still do everything for my team, because, at the end of the day, I don't really give a f... about having bad stats or anything like that, I just want to feel that I did something for my team and feel that I'm there. So it felt really good to just know that I can pull a little bit more weight than usual. So I was just happy about that as well.

The veteran duo haven't played at a Major since ESL One Cologne 2016

Speaking a bit about the in-game part of it, you had faced ENCE at ESL One Cologne and it had gone badly, so were you perhaps a little surprised by how one-sided that match ended up being here?

I don't know. I think that we were in a very weird situation during Cologne. My health was very bad, I lost a lot of weight, I couldn't eat, I couldn't drink, I couldn't focus, really. I gave everything for the Minor, I gave everything for the online part, I gave everything for the tournaments we were playing. And I wasn't really there. I tried to give everything for the team and I had to take care of my health, and that showed in Cologne. I was barely there, people were asking me 'how are you doing?' and I felt very bad. But I pulled through because I wanted to do it for my team and I wanted to do it for myself, but I couldn't deliver and that disappointed me the most.

Of all the disappointments I've had in my career, that was the one that broke me a lot because I did a lot of hours before the tournament, as well, I put up great numbers in the online qualifier and everything, but I wasn't there in Cologne at all. No one was there, so it wasn't just me, but everyone wasn't there. I'm pretty sure that everyone was affected by it because they knew that my health wasn't there and I wasn't really there, either, as a person.

But we came through, I went to the hospital and got myself fixed, or at least in a way, I'm not fully done, but now I have a vacation and I can take care of myself, so that's a good sign that I can just relax for a while after winning here. But we had a different mindset, we fixed a lot of issues, we were very mad about the issues that we had and we were very open and vocal about it, as well, and I think a lot of weight was also removed from a lot of players because of different issues they had in-game and outside of the game.

But that helped us and made us even stronger, we had a lot of help from our mental coach, the people around us that no one probably even knows who they are, but they helped us a lot and we pulled through here. Winning over ENCE was a big weight that was released from everyone's shoulders, especially mine and f0rest's.

There's always this discussion about the Minor grand finals and how much meaning they have considering both teams have already qualified and that there's pretty much just pocket change at stake. How much did winning the final mean to you guys as a team that hasn't won a tournament in a while?

It means more than you think. And it means more to everyone else in the team because we haven't won anything in a long time. IEM Oakland was the last one - typical, apparently, we're really good there every time (laughs). But getting another first place on your resumé is something that I always strive for.

I don't really care about the money or anything about that, I just want to add another trophy to my cabinet. And that's the only thing that matters for me and that everyone is playing well. And now we've got one for this year, now we can just prepare for the next season, so I'm very happy about that.

GeT_RiGhT believes Lekr0 has a lot of qualities as a leader figure

The other big storyline regarding your team was Lekr0 becoming the in-game leader right after Cologne. How do you see his progression over the last couple of weeks and especially here, where you had to overcome quite a lot?

I think he did a super good job. He has a lot of qualities that people may not see, I think he has a lot of leadership qualities that don't really shine through now because of the short time we had and the preparation. He's very calm, he's very happy, he's always making jokes, and he's always a guy that can turn it around for someone who gets a little bit tilted or anything like that. That's good to have in a guy like him, as a leader, because it cools everything down.

I think that changed a lot for us, that was an issue for us before that we could get very tilted very quickly and get stuck there. But he was the guy who changed that completely for us, online, when we bootcamped, and at this tournament, he shined through the most, if you ask me.

We just need to work even harder now, I don't think we're going to relax at all. I hope we can just continue what we've done here because now we're qualified and now we have even bigger battles coming up and we can't be too happy about this. We're happy for now, but now we just have to grind even harder and keep going, give back to our fans who have been waiting for a long time.

Speaking of relaxing, and you already touched on this a little when you talked about getting yourself back together, how much time are you going to spend away from the game in this break that is coming up and how much time will you spend on preparations for the Major?

Right now my feelings are that I just want to go back and grind because I'm in that mood right now. But I think that I should keep it down and quiet a little bit and just focus on my health, firstly, just relax, and I'm going away on a 10-day holiday with my girlfriend. I think around the 12th-13th - I don't know exactly, we haven't really discussed it specifically -, somewhere around there we're going to start again, redo everything, and just work hard again.

So it's at least going to be a few weeks that you'll have...

I think it's around three weeks what we talked about regarding the break, but I think it's going to be less, it depends, you'll always want to grind a little bit more. Eventually, when you're on vacation, you get bored easily because people are working, your friends, etc., so you're like 'hmm, maybe I should play a little bit' and then you start playing earlier anyway. Maybe we're not going to really practice as a team, but we're probably going to start earlier.

TFW GTR out of all players gets death threats for not performing. What's worse is that he's probably not talking about random HLTV bait threads but actual people on Twitter and shit. This is honestly unacceptable and I feel like it makes our community look far less mature than other esports communities
2018-07-23 00:17
poor guy was a top2 player from 2010 all the way to 2015 and he gets so much hate for being mediocre, not even that bad. he may not play that well, but it's pretty embarrassing how all those nerds that can't even win silver games are talking shit about the biggest legend we have apart from f0rest

2018-07-24 14:53
Listen here buddy. Don't make claims you cannot back up. Proof is not something to be taken lightly, the law of evidence regulates the process of proof. The rule of civil and criminal evidence, in conjunction with the rules of procedure, establish the frame work for the process of proof and the conduct of litigation, so that a person claiming something will know what the burden of proof his claims require in order to succeed. It reflects a powerful tool in bringing the guilty to justice, whilst allowing the innocent to go free. In some cases the rules of evidence may actually prevent the truth from being discovered in the wider public interest however we know that is not the case here. Moreover the general rule is that evidence of the defendant's character and previous convictions will not be admitted at trial (see Art 138 of cr.p.c and Rule-145 of DER). As we shall see a number of rules relating to admissibility and use of evidence are directed towards minimizing the risk of wrongful convictions. And the main risks of error stem largely from the admission of unreliable or prejudicial evidence. Thus this concept of free proof may allow people on twitter to portray unreliable or prejudicial evidence, which lead to a hasty conclusion. The burden on proof is on your side while you make these claims. When a dispute, whether relating to a civil or criminal matter, reaches the court there will always be a number of issues which one party will have to prove in order to persuade the court to find in his or her favour. The law must ensure certain guidelines are set out in order to ensure that evidence presented to the court can be regarded as trustworthy. If you cannot do that punishment is more often than not swift in nature. You can also not count on the party to let you walk off freely as being an unreliable witness or claimant may result in legal and perhaps lethal repercussions out of court the likes of which you've never seen before for which you cannot claim amnesty or protection if your claim is proven to be unlawful or slander. I as KNG will exercise my right of self deference to the fullest and you will seize to exist on this earth morally, legally and most importantly physically. TL:DR; Prove it or I'll kill you

Income inequality is the stupidest issue EVER. The fact is that the American people have higher standard of living. Do you know who makes that - rich people creating new products/services, enlarging the pie and making people's lives better. On the other hand Sudan has 0 income inequality - they are GREAT !

a "big" game in a minor versus tier 2 teams...
2018-07-22 23:22
Yea because unless you’ve been living under a rock for the 7+ years you’ve been on the site NiP qualified for something that they haven’t competed in for 2 years That’s why it’s big, it’s an important event to happen in the history of CS, like NiP’s 87-0 streak with its original 5, and then their struggles while playing with and releasing many talents, like Fifflarren, pyth, Xizt and draken to name a few. And, like so many haters of GTR and NiP, I doubt that most of them have been through 2 years of hardship in their place of work. You’re not as ignorant as the people who say they want to kill GTR but your still ignorant ass actually needs to shut up before it gives your brain an aneurysm.

the gtr of 2013 would not be satisfied with a decent game versus guys who don't go to majors. probably would be pissed at himself for not doing better and wanting to do better looking forward. it's the change from a guy who wants to be the best to a guy who just wants to stay on a team. it is sad
2018-07-23 04:03
Too bad it’s not 2013 GTR and co. worked their asses for their biggest accomplishment in 2 years to date, and even if GTR worked only to keep his spot on NiP, then he’s done himself a giant favor, because losing to ENCE would’ve been probably his gravestone

1 good game of hundreds bad games lol
2018-07-22 23:23
Has been playing decent for last couple of months .. Just dont be cocky m8
2018-07-22 23:25
hes honestly been playing fine all year. he's been putting up like 1.1 ratings online and, discounting cologne, .95 ratings offline which isn't too bad. even if he isn't the top1 player he was a couple of years ago, the criticism he's getting is pretty unwarranted as he's still more than capable of pulling his weight against top teams.
2018-07-22 23:39
Exactly,dunno what people expect from him.if he gets some crucial lurk frags or clutches then he is done his job.this is what he was doing even at his prime

I think most of people dont know how he is playing a hard role. always other side as t but not a lurker but making first frag or anything. yes he was unstable about shooting especially when he tries full auto too much. but his reading about game is incredible still now. if he is shooting with calm like today, I think he can keep shining.

Who the fuck would send death threats to him and his family because of his performance? I know there are lots of retarded people in the csgo community, but that is just way over the top...

This is true and really sad. Criticizing someone for his/hers performance is one thing, sending death threats is another. Sad to see this has affected GTR (and players like Smithzz, STYKO and who knows how many others).

Remember you have people who love you, Christopher! <3 You're one of the greatest players to ever touch Counter-Strike and you have the stats to prove it -- No amount of hatred will change that and you should be proud of the skill you have. You have far more heart and passion for the game than most people and I think that shows in the games you play. Look after your health, spend loads of time with your loved ones and get a nice recharge before the big games. :) Ignore the hatred, it's unintelligibly fallible and entirely untrue. Once more, a final congratulations and just know I'll always be wishing you the best of luck. :) <3 Have a good day, friend. :) My love to you and the rest of the guys. :)

I've been cheering for them always, but from an analytical POV, The "NiP" we all know and love has been absent for a long time now. 2012-2014 was the dominance and 2016 had a good re-birthing from NiP. They had won some tournaments in 2017, but funnily enough this accolade is probably their biggest in those couple of years. Attending the Major is a big step for NiP and I'm sure inside they must be ashamed it's taken this long to accomplish it.
2018-07-22 23:32

They looked shaky as all hell, but I think they felt a lot calmer when they got to the finals. It was "do or die" and they played their hearts out.

The pressure on NiP to perform was cataclysmic... It was truly harrowing to see them crumble when they shouldn't, so you could definitely tell the confidence barrier changed once they got into the latter stages of the tournament. f0rest/GTR turning up against ENCE was a glory to watch, I'll admit. :D

Oh, hi Jonty. It's been a while since I saw you on HLTV. Probably 'cause they deleted the blog. What the hell.. HLTV people and bettor are trying to kill GTR. This brought up to light and looked even worse when you think every time NiP lost again some shit team like in Cologne, there were always threads and threads regarding of his performance and telling him to just stop playing CS. Jesus christ, he played more than you think and it turned out that his abundance of practice was the culprit of his bad performance. Professional players are PAID to play the game of course he is practicing, but the comments were utter trash that he put a lot more hours into the game and torture himself to prove otherwise. But god do you know how fast my heartbeat when I see GTR on the match vs ENCE. I already saw NiP losses, and it was always GTR part that very emotional to me.

It's been a long time since I've seen you, rareguy... So it's an absolute pleasure to be able to speak to you once more. ^^ "What the hell.. HLTV people and bettor are trying to kill GTR. This brought up to light and looked even worse when you think every time NiP lost again some shit team like in Cologne, there were always threads and threads regarding of his performance and telling him to just stop playing CS.

Professional players are PAID to play the game of course he is practicing, but the comments were utter trash that he put a lot more hours into the game and torture himself to prove otherwise." People are stupid and do not realise the impact GTR has... Talks of booting him from the team, hatred-spreading, death-threats -- Despite all of this, GTR still showed up and proved he can play good CS:GO again. :) HLTV is a good example of a plethora of opinions from all angles, some good - some bad, it's just a shame it's mostly bad. You're spot on when it comes to professionals being paid for what they do and these same people evidently haven't watched CS:GO when GTR dominated the original scene for three years straight. "But god do you know how fast my heartbeat when I see GTR on the match vs ENCE. I already saw NiP losses, and it was always GTR part that very emotional to me." Same here. :D GTR and f0rest had some revitalisation during that BO3 against ENCE in the semi-finals. Despite a very rough road, they looked really convincing in the latter games they played. I know Christopher personally as I've played 1.6 with him and spoken to him on many occasions, so the hate-spreading I see coming GTR's way gets to me, too. He's the kindest person I've ever known and would honestly give his last penny to a beggar in the street. He's poured half of his entire life into this game and shows more passion for it than most people. He doesn't play for the money or the recognition and never has - it's for the fun of the game and for the people he's playing with. Have a good day, friend. An absolute pleasure to see you on HLTV once again. :D

You can't always be at the top. GTR had a lot of success but not being able to get results for many years with exception of Oakland must be frustrating because he still has the same passion for the game like he had when he started his career.

You are a CS Legend and you will always be a CS Legend, you held an insane amount of skill that some could only dream of longer than most people have been playing the game. I hate to see people berate you for poor performances as you struggle to juggle your health, happniess, and professional career and I will defend you as long as you play man.

man I can't explain how emotional I got in his interview before the match against ENCE. I have been following him since the beginning of CSGO, and never seen him emotionally drained like that. No doubt his health issue affected him in that regard. I just wish him to get his healthiest form back. He's such a unique personality, and that's not only valuable for the scene but the whole esports community. GTR <3

I do but if u cant handle that just stay low and get out of the scene??? Theres tons of jobs that he can do behind the scenes in esports...
2018-07-23 10:17
Think about it yourself, you go on social medias for over 2 years. And most of the things that he get is death threats to him/family and hate. Sometime it will bring you down.. This shouldn't even be in the scene to begin with, especially death threats. There is plenty of celebrities that have made their social medias private or deleted it when they have gotten these things when it have been too much of it.
2018-07-23 10:40
dont get me wrong, i dont approve these actions by those tards..u dont threaten people.. what im trying to say is, u can do smth about it...
2018-07-23 10:42
Why should that stop him for doing the thing that he lives and breath for? Better way is to maybe be open about it like he was in this interview and some of them will realise that they have caused pain/damage on a REAL person. Was even a thread up on reddit csgo first page some week ago when he made a statement about his condition etc that somone in NiP management screenshot and posted on his twitter. This is the right way to deal with it.

I feel that, even if the teams at the minor were not top teams, they are on the right path to be a top team again, they finally have someone who WANTS to be the IGL (and is actually good at it), the teamwork showed up again, lekro dennis REZ and forest seem pretty confident picking up the awp and they are all showing up with clutches, even GTR. Its really sad to see how toxic the ppl can be towards a player that is giving it all to deliver to his fans and his team. #GONINJAS
