GeT_RiGhT: "I always gambled with my health, but this time I will also gamble with my legacy"

We spoke to Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund about his departure from NiP, working as an analyst, and what drives him back to competing in an interview conducted during the ECS Season 8 Finals in Arlington, Texas.

Ahead of the start of the grand final match between Astralis and Liquid at the ECS Season 8 Finals, we sat down and talked with GeT_RiGhT who attended the event as an analyst, branching into on-camera work for the first time.

Parting ways with NiP left GeT_RiGhT mixed emotions

GeT_RiGhT shed some light on his last months in NiP, admitting that he should've quit the team after the Major as the whole team was caught in "a bad loop" since the future of the roster was uncertain. After sharing some impressions about working as an analyst, the Swede reiterated that his "priority is always going to be playing" and proceeded to explain why he insists on returning to competition, no matter the cost.

What have you been up to since you stopped playing for NiP? You were in North America for a few weeks, but what was the deal with GeT_RiGhT for the last couple of months?

Ever since I left the team I felt kind of lost, to be honest. I was thinking if I fought hard enough to stay in the team and if quitting the team was the correct decision. I was feeling uncertain about my future. The situation [within NiP], I think all of the players, including myself, we were in kind of a bad loop, no one knew what was happening with me.

Going back to when the first news came out, I got to know maybe two weeks before the official news, and I was fine with it from the beginning. I accepted to play Cologne and the Major and then eventually it became a little bit more and sometimes it felt like I'm staying, sometimes it felt like I'm not staying - it was a bad period. And I think it was on me and on everyone. It was kind of a weird situation, looking back at it I understand why I was also kind of angry at the whole situation because I felt lost as a person and as a player but I can't really judge them.

I feel that other people, who weren't in the team, were also judging the players in the team because dennis got cut at the same time when I was informed my spot was not safe. It was just a very weird situation, also with dennis, I don't know what happened to him, just that the same day I got the call he was also cut. I got to extend my stay a little bit, but I was also asked if I could play in those tournaments and I said yes, "whatever you guys need I'll do it". But after the two tournaments, I believe I should've probably left because the team was in the position that they needed another player instead of me and I felt like I didn't belong there anymore, in a way. So there was a lot of mixed emotions, my anger with the situation, sadness that I had been playing in NiP for so long, but also, I was eager to move on. Nothing is going to be there forever.

It is still a little bit sad because I haven't talked about it and I haven't really thought about it in a long time, at least in the two months now since I haven't been playing with the team anymore. But the break itself has been very good for me, it helped me a lot on a lot of levels.

What is it like to not be an active player after playing for so long? pronax recently said that he felt lost because when you wake up, you don't have the grind to go to. What is that part like for you?

I don't know how it was for him, I don't know pronax that well but I can understand him to some extent. But for me, I got taught by father who works a lot with my brand and in esports, that when I take this route of just playing — and I've been doing this for such a long time — I always try to have a lot of other things to do. Even when I was playing actively, I always had other things that were interesting to me. Alongside that, I played a little bit, not as much as when I was practicing because that was a lot more hours, but at least enough to not feel lost.

But the break was good in a lot of ways because I also felt that I've been lost, in general, over the whole year, for a lot of reasons even outside of the game. So it was a good break because I needed to work on those things outside of the game. It was needed, very very needed.

Overall, I was streaming, I was playing, hanging out with my friends, trying to catch up with people I haven't met in a long time, those that are far away. I also wanted to be more impulsive, like, I want to go and see other places I've maybe been to before but not really explored because of playing tournaments. So I met a lot of people, I was leaving Sweden for two or three days and then coming back... it has been a very interesting period in general. I worked on my personal brand, streaming, recently I started renovating my apartment (laughs) - I've been busy when you look at it, maybe you can't really see it from the outside but that is also because I want to be private in some parts.

Desk work has been an eye-opening experience, but playing is priority

How did you get into this analyst gig for ECS? Was this something you were attracted to for a longer time?

It is quite interesting, it ties into the last question where I said that I wanted to be more impulsive and if someone gives me an opportunity, instead of always saying no, which I've been doing for the last couple of years, I told myself I need to do it at least one time while they are still asking me. I'm surprised by how many times I've actually been asked, I've also been asked to do Majors which in my books is still really weird (laughs). I'm very flattered by the offers to do those things, but at the same time I don't have the experience. I have the experience of playing but I don't have the experience of being in front of the camera and actually talking...

These were Major a bit back, in 2017?

After that even, I think it was 2017 and 2018, two different Majors, and it was quite interesting especially when it was ELEAGUE. But in general, going into this event, Bardolph asked me a couple of weeks ago, a little bit more, and I didn't accept it right away because I was still like "I don't want to do this, I'm not familiar with it" - I came up with all of the excused I always did. But then I thought "Chris, come on, just try it out and see how it goes. If you are horrible, then you know for sure you are not going to do it again".

Going into this, all the talent, the people around it, you get a new perspective of how things work, how long days can be, how it feels for them to sit in the green room and watch a game for like three hours straight and then jump from the seat, some have so many notes, some don't take notes and have it all in their head, they go up and they perform to the level they do.

I mean, I noticed from the years of watching that there are errors here and there and I was like "Why are they talking about this?". But now I understand it more, there is so much information when you come in and I mean, I do a lot of hiccups here and there, I know, and my first language is not English, I know that is also an issue. The good thing is that I have a lot of experience and knowledge but I still feel kinda lost when I'm standing there on the stage sometimes. I'm nervous, 100%, but it is all good, to be honest. I actually enjoyed it and I felt like it was fun. It is still fun, it's the last day now, I'm looking forward to the final and I hope I do much better than on the first day. Also, I feel small improvements in myself and the talent is helping me so much with it, I'm very thankful for everyone helping me out.

Would you do more desks in the future, is that an option for you?

I'll at least be more open to the idea than I was before. Before, I always closed the door directly when they asked me, I'd just be: "No". I'm going to be open to it but it would also be a little bit better to get a little bit of feedback. The talent, I know them from before so I'm going to take in that feedback, but it is hard for me coming from being a player where I have the mentality that I can't read everything people are saying on the internet because that will mindf*ck me and I'll feel very bad about myself if I perform badly.

So I don't know how I'll deal with it, maybe I'll do a reddit post or a Twitlonger like "hey, give me more feedback, I'd like to see what you liked and didn't like". I know I had an issue when I had the small segment at BLAST, where I said "what not" too many times (laughs), I also heard that I say "like" too much, but I don't know, all analysts and casters have their small things you hear all the time, so maybe I shouldn't listen to it too much. But I'll take any feedback that comes in. In the future, I'll be more open and if it works with my schedule maybe I'll do it, but I always want to play so my priority is always going to be playing.

According to rumors, GeT_RiGhT could be linking up with f0rest in Dignitas

What do you still want to accomplish as a player? You did practically everything, individually you were the best player of the year, as a team you still hold some records, you won a Major - what do you still want to accomplish that drives you back to playing?

It has been around five months since things turned around for me in the team. Me, as a human being, knowing that I was lost, I needed this slap in the face to really be like: "Hey, step up. Be the person you were known for before, be the person you are proud of." Because I'm a proud person, I am proud of myself. I know that I have a lot of hiccups in my personal life, in the game, all that kind of stuff, but I take it in as an experience. You live and you learn.

But with the last five months, I feel a hunger that I haven't felt in a long time. I know I've probably said that already through the years, but I felt like last year, during the FACEIT Major cycle, I gave everything to qualify and that cost a lot of my health. That was really bad (laughs), I lost like 20 kilograms, I was just a ghost. I think, in a way, I will always prioritize playing and I'll always go against my health which I know is the stupidest thing you can do, and I know a lot of people who give me so much shit for it, even people that I don't know that much either, but they see it on me, they see how I am and how I change. But I'm always going to gamble with my life, in a way, because I love this game, I love this industry, I love all the people around it, and I will hopefully always be here.

Since I changed my mindset of being more impulsive, saying yes more, seeing more opportunities outside of just playing, enjoying life itself more, I see that the one missing piece is still to compete. To have practice, have those annoying hours of trying new things, going to deathmatch for an hour without even really having a reason why. That kind of stuff. I feel more energy, more hunger, more motivation. I'm not really thinking that I want to go back to being the best player, the best team, right now I just want to get back into it. Feel the pressure of "hey, you are here, show everyone once again that you are here for a reason and that you should be here".

That is my next year's motivation and that is the thing I've been waiting to do for two-three months. I'm just waiting to get back into it. I mean, I did an almost 24-hour stream of playing CS, non-stop PUGs - it was ridiculous how fun it was. As the pronax meme goes, "pure yoy". And I missed that thing, I think I lost it during this year and I want to get back. I'm holding it at the moment, now I just have to share it and become the person that I want to.

Certain people within the community have this sentiment about legends playing out too far into their career, implying that they should retire before they become bad. I think NEO is an example people talk about a lot in that way, you as well, that by not retiring when you start going downwards you are losing your legends status or something along those lines. What are your thoughts on that, do you think it is a fair thing to say?

I guess, in a way. But as a human being and someone that knows myself — but also lost myself a lot of times —, I know that I always gambled with my health, which I already said, but I think that this time I will also gamble with my legacy. And I'll do it any given day to get to where I want to be. If that means I won't be the legendary player I was or someone people talk about highly anymore, then so be it. Because I love this game too much and I love everything around it, and I don't want to get to a point where I feel I can't play anymore. I think I will explain more about it in the future when I think I have all of the answers, or maybe the right answers for people. Because I know that after this interview I will probably get even more shit. I don't know why people love to give me shit, but they don't know me so it is all good.

But going back to it, if they say I'm risking losing everything - am I though? I'm actually getting more offers than I have during the last three-four years, not just only playing. More playing offers, more outside of the game offers, more stop playing, move to another continent and do other things offers, which is amazing. So what am I really gambling with? Yes, I see the gambling in terms of the CS circle, but I think everyone else outside of it will probably say: "yeah he did this and that and then tried to do it again and maybe failed miserably, or maybe he was even more successful with it". It doesn't really matter, at the end of it all I'm just a human being that loves whatever I'm doing.

The name "GeT_RiGhT" will always be relevant in Counter-Strike regardless of what he does in the future. No player today has that megastar pull he had. Ask any casual esport fans who probably never watched a game of CS ever and that person might still have heard of GTR's name when you talk about CS.

Sure, some people have pathetically short memories, but he'll always be legend of the game, same with Neo. I think if he did want to give being an analyst a go, he'd have to work on some enthusiasm. It's understandable that the days can be long and it might be difficult, but all jobs have challenges.

2019-12-10 14:29
You are and you will be part of Counter Strike history, no question about this... But, in what comes to respect, you have lost half of mine when you picked mibr to win fnatic on ECS finals based on the illusion that "mibr is coming up again"... Fnatic won once and twice again! In fact, using that argument forgetting that also Fnatic was coming up, forgetting that they are also swedish, puts you down for me... and just how distant from game reality you are since...2016?!? The remaining respect I have for you, will be certainly lost when you find yourself at the bottom of a bottle...sadly!
2019-12-10 14:32
Lmao you sound like a delusional hater.
2019-12-10 17:21

2019-12-10 19:11
You lost half ur respect for him when he gave his opinion that a team you liked would lose a match? Was ur diaper full of poopies at the time? Grow up kid.
2019-12-10 21:29
OMG... Thank you for the "kid" thing. My kids loved it...! Now, I will very s-l-o-w-l-y try to explain to you: It was not about a team I liked, because I also like mibr. It was about a delusional, with lack of fundation, and disrespect for their own flag brothers... C-l-e-a-r? And, still about the "kid" thing, I left diapers behind almost 10 years ago... I mean, my kids diapers. Now, please go read a book or something...
2019-12-11 11:34
So you lost respect for him bc he disagreed with ur opinion, which is the only opinion that matters in this crazy world, amirite? Talk about delusional. Its funny u mention reading books, i actually just started Midnight in Chernobyl. Ill let u know what My opinion is.
2019-12-11 21:22
Svetlana...she's old news, probably 4 years old news... Book is good to read but, facts are absent from the narrative, sorry about the spoiler. So, back to your comment... opinions are important. Whoever, most of the days, opinion is beaten by facts and FACT is that MIBR results were far away from FNATIC results, hence, if you are an analyst, your opinion doesn't matter because if it does, you'll be a commentator not an analyst and... Enough because people who do not understand simple premises, do not worth my time.

I would love to see him compete again but he needs to think whether he will be happy with competing at a lower level. If he's happy with that then fine but it might be hard to go from the absolute highest level to tier 2/3. If he just enjoys the game and competition no matter what level it is then more power to him cos there's a big chance he will never make it to the top again and in that case he needs to be able to enjoy it for what it is, without depending on the prestige of it cos there isn't much of that in the lower levels.

Let him play, its his life. If he enjoys it and doesnt care what people thinks i guess he is the winner in the end. I still dont think he is a good player, but i respect him more as a person after reading this.

2019-12-10 15:31
He still stays in the past. Do work as analyst. You can provide more than the others about mindsets of players or why they don't play for time and die by defending bomb. Such things not every user understands. I see it when Gobb does Co cast big games. It gives a viewer more than the trash talk from spunj.
2019-12-10 15:32
Good luck, good read, staying healthy is important though and should be the priority number one while cs number two, cause without health there will be no cs :))

Wasting 3 of NiP's golden years - he should have stepped down, while NiP were still a t1 team. He had the most terrible of performances with f0rest (mostly) and Xizt always trying to carrye the team with this free kill, called Get_right. Main reason why I stopped being a NiP fan. There you go.

"I think that this time I will also gamble with my legacy. And I'll do it any given day to get to where I want to be. If that means I won't be the legendary player I was or someone people talk about highly anymore, then so be it." Anyone who will think less of you, is a lesser person than you. No matter what you will do in the future, you'll always be in our hearts. You will forever remain an integral part of Counter-Strike and esports history. The mindset you have is special, it will forever serve as an inspiration to see that level of commitment and dedication to a game based out of love. Legend, forever and always GeT_RiGhT. Don't ever forget it.

Damn, reading this it rly shows that dumb HLTV ppl got into GTRs head :). Cmon brah, ur better than that... stay away from reading comments period. Jesus i remember when this guy joined fnatic in 2007 he would put up insane numbers every single match, and continued till 2015, so thats 8 years of being TOP 3 in the game.

GeT_RiGhT is very hard working person. I am happy to see he is getting out of his comfort zone and considering doing stuff he wouldn't have done in the past. For some reason i always thought GeT_RiGhT will be successful if he became part of an international team. I think he just just need to change his surrounding/environment.

get right needs a new perspective in life. He needs his eyes to open up about other things as well. Life is just about video games, theres more to it. This is the calling for him to do something else in life, he just gotta find it. Right now hes still stucked in the past. He needs more time to find a different passion and go with it. Somebody has to show him the other ways to enjoy life.

2019-12-10 22:48
You ever play a match where the other guys get like 7 rounds ahead and your whole team just... deflates? They stop calling, they run and peek dumb angles. Even if you're still hunting for the win, it weighs you down. It makes you feel tired, and the game just stops being fun. It sucks. It really sucks. But there are other times when you get absolutely bodied in the first half, and things turn out differently. When you look at that gaping lead and the whole voice chat just says "winnable" instead of rolling over, that's when things take a much better turn. That mindset fundamentally changes the experience of being ground to dust by the opposition. Maybe you don't get the comeback. But you communicate. You boost eachother and make crossfires. Every kill feels like a triumph. Every death is a slap in the face. It's exhilarating to play with a determined squad, especially when your backs are against the wall (even if it is just ELO on the line). For those last couple rounds until the dominating team puts you down for good, you and the boys are gaming. GeT_RiGhT, and any other legend, is the kind of teammate that fights to the last round, because they savor every inch of map control they take and point of damage they deal. They love the game. Until the last round is over, I know I'll be spamming "winnable" in chat whenever the GOAT is in trouble. And if he's fated to leave the pro scene for good, then Alesund is going to make destiny work for its frag.

"I know that I always gambled with my health, which I already said, but I think that this time I will also gamble with my legacy. And I'll do it any given day to get to where I want to be. If that means I won't be the legendary player I was or someone people talk about highly anymore, then so be it. Because I love this game too much and I love everything around it, and I don't want to get to a point where I feel I can't play anymore." That is why he IS and always WILL be a Legend! <3
