GeT_RiGhT steps down from professional CS: “Shocking to say that I'm not going to compete anymore”

The 30-year-old is closing a chapter to pursue full-time streaming and content creation.

Christopher "⁠GeT_RiGhT⁠" Alesund bursts into laughter as I show him one picture from 2014. He is sitting on the floor of the ESL One Cologne Major stage, right next to the trophy that he just won, confetti all around him, his hands covering his eyes as he struggles to hold back tears. Almost seven years later, that image is still etched into the memory of countless Counter-Strike fans.

It is because of such iconic moments — and there were plenty of those throughout his playing career — that GeT_RiGhT is still to this day one of the most recognisable figures in all of esports, even though it’s been a long time since his prime years. Today, he officially walks off the stage as a professional player to move to streaming and content creation. It’s the end of a chapter, yet GeT_RiGhT refuses to use the word “retirement”, almost as if playing competitively is an itch he feels he'll need to scratch at some point.

GeT_RiGhT will cease competing as he wishes to pursue other opportunities

“I'm not going to say that I'm retiring, because you never know, one day I might feel the urge and the need to compete again,” he tells HLTV.org in a call. “But for the time being, I'm taking a break, and that break could be extended into retirement or not. Who knows? The future will tell.”

GeT_RiGhT says that he began thinking about the next stage of his career in 2016, when he was still competing at the highest level. The transition to a content creator role within Dignitas — the last organisation that he represented as a player — feels like a natural fit for him. “As years went by, I felt more interested in things other than just being a professional gamer,” he explains. “Those who are close to me know that I’m passionate about a lot of other things. That also means developing the scene and also my personal brand.” He says that he will play a variety of games on stream — “whatever I feel like playing because I’m not going to force myself to play a specific game for the viewers” — and not just VALORANT as many had been led to believe by the teaser released on December 26.

He hopes to capitalise on the popularity that he has gained ever since he emerged as a raw, teenage CS 1.6 sensation in 2007 in the highly-competitive Swedish scene, spending the next years on some of the country’s elite teams, most notably SK and fnatic. He lost out to Yegor "⁠markeloff⁠" Markelov and Filip "⁠NEO⁠" Kubski in the races for the title of the best player of 2010 and 2011, but he got on another level once CS:GO came around and played a central role as NiP created a dynasty during their incredible 87-0 LAN run. He was named the best player in 2013 and 2014, winning a Major title — that title in Cologne — in the latter year, at a time when many were already doubting him and his team.

The winds of change were already sweeping through the scene by the time the Cologne Major started. NIP were no longer the team that had dominated the field during the game’s infancy, and they had finished in second place at the previous two Majors following heart-breaking losses to fnatic in Jönköping and to Virtus.pro in Katowice. A blowout defeat to Epsilon in the group stage was followed by tales of doom, but the Ninjas managed to overcome their woes and beat Cloud9, LDLC and fnatic — all in three-map series and with nail-biting decider maps — en route to the title.

After posing for photographs, GeT_RiGhT sat on the floor, holding the trophy and hugging it to his chest, almost in disbelief. Moments later, the tears started rolling down.

“It felt like a big motherf****g relief, to be honest,” he recalls. “Doing it with such a great group of people, it meant the world to me. I still don’t have an answer [as to how I felt]. A lot of relief, a lot of happiness, a lot of sadness. It was a mixture of everything.

“We were coming off a bad period. I wouldn’t say we were a horrible team, but we weren’t performing at the level we used to. People started doubting us, and I think it was a bit too soon to do that, but I understand it. The scene was starting to make a big turn and a lot more teams were getting the opportunity to win tournaments. The Danish and the Polish guys were on the rise, fnatic was really good that year as well, there were a lot more stable teams and we were starting to slip up.

“It just felt like make or break for the team, at least that’s how I looked at it. It felt so meaningful and the most important victory of that team and that lineup. It was for all the years, through 1.6 and CS:GO, all the hard work, the dedication I had put in towards the teams and the game itself. I think that’s why I crashed on stage.”

NiP were unable to stay on that winning path and found success hard to come by in the years that followed, settling for second place at the following two Majors, DreamHack Winter 2014 and ESL One Katowice 2015. As for GeT_RiGhT, he began to fade somewhat into the background as players like Olof "⁠olofmeister⁠" Kajbjer, Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David, Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz and Janusz "⁠Snax⁠" Pogorzelski took center stage. He made his last appearance in an HLTV.Top 20 in 2016 at No.18.

GeT_RiGhT was part of the iconic NiP roster that went 87-0 on LAN and won the 2014 Major in Cologne

As years went by, GeT_RiGhT’s health problems, some of which he has openly discussed, also started taking a heavy toll on his form. He suffers from Crohn's disease, an inflammatory bowel disease, which on some days causes him excruciating pain. Maintaining a high level of performance at an elite level, with long practice hours and constant travel, under such conditions becomes a challenge in itself.

“Throughout my career, I’ve been battling different kinds of personal issues, like mental health states,” he says. “I’ve never been that honest about it, only to some extent, but not in a way that people could understand the whole picture.

“My personal life completely crashed for a couple of months in 2016. We were still competing, I had to travel around the world. I was in the hospital for a couple of weeks because of my stomach disease, I didn't have a home for a couple of months, then I finally got the opportunity to buy an apartment. Things obviously got better with time, but everything started escalating around that time.”

GeT_RiGhT ended his long association with NiP in September 2019 after some rollercoaster years, and headed back into familiar territory just a few months later as he reunited with his old teammates under the banner of Dignitas, who were looking to make a grand re-entrance in the scene.

Things initially looked promising as Dignitas qualified for the Europe Minor, but their progress hit a stumbling block once the coronavirus pandemic hit and cancelled in-person events. To make matters worse, they were without Håkon "⁠hallzerk⁠" Fjærli for several weeks during Flashpoint 1 and had to field Ladislav "⁠GuardiaN⁠" Kovács as a stand-in. The team spent the months that followed the league trying to catch up to everyone, but without success. In September, GeT_RiGhT and Richard "⁠Xizt⁠" Landström were moved to the bench.

“It just felt like the right time, when Dignitas benched me,” he says of his decision to stop playing competitively. “On the spot I felt already that I was done as a professional player.

“It's not really shocking news. I mean, it's going to be shocking saying that I'm not going to be competing anymore. I think it was the right move because of my health and how I've felt for the past couple of years. It doesn’t help that I’ve had panic attacks, issues with my arm, neck and head. And also the stomach disease that I have, the ear issue…”

The video message that was shared today, he says, feels incomplete. Just like on that stage in Cologne seven years ago, he experienced a rush of emotions trying to express his feelings. “I knew after it was recorded that I had so much more to say,” he admits. “But at the same time, it was a beautiful moment and I almost start crying every time I look at it.” He would have liked to have had the chance to say his goodbye at a LAN event, especially one in Sweden, to repay the support shown to him over the years, even though he believes he would probably struggle to find the perfect words. “I already had it planned out in my head, what I was going to do, because I wanted to give back to the fans, I wanted to do it for them. A little bit for me too, because it needs to be a good ending chapter, I guess. These are my last 30 seconds in the spotlight in a way, and it would have been good to get out the message that I wanted. It would have been awesome to do it in a live tournament, but I'm lucky to have had such a great career in general, and I'm grateful for everyone that has always been there for me.”

GeT_RiGhT has spent half of his life living and breathing Counter-Strike. He is not only one of the most decorated players in the history of the franchise, with countless trophies, ten tournament MVP medals (joint third in the all-time list) and six consecutive appearances in the HLTV Top 20 across two games, but he also holds a reputation as one of the most beloved players. As he prepares to walk away from playing the game professionally, reality still hasn’t hit him. “I haven’t thought about how I’m going to feel,” he says.” For the last couple of months, I’ve been working towards this goal and getting ready for this next stage in my career. Maybe I'll have the energy to actually read the comments because the last couple of years haven’t been that positive for my family, for my friends and for myself.”

GeT_RiGhT wishes he had the chance to have a proper farewell at a LAN event, preferably in Sweden

In a trophy-laden career like GeT_RiGhT’s, it’s hard to pinpoint any one thing, but the victory in Cologne perfectly illustrates some of the many aspects that made him one of the game’s greats. Beyond the talent, he displayed a spirit of sacrifice to rise to the many challenges thrown his way — the doubts, the criticism, and above all, the never-ending health problems —, embracing the spirit of Journey’s “Don't Stop Believin'”, which used to be his alternative nickname. “The song has stuck with me for so many years, it means so much to me, those three words,” he says. “Maybe other people see it differently, but for me, it makes complete sense because that means that you should never give up on your dreams. That has stuck with me.”

For all that he’s achieved, he is surprisingly coy when the conversation switches to his legacy. So I ask him instead about how he wants to be remembered.

“I want to be remembered as a guy who came from Sweden, from a scene where it was very tough to establish yourself as a professional,” he says. “As someone who was fighting for a dream that basically no-one believed in. I had a lot of people against me in the beginning because they thought I didn’t deserve the chance to be a professional player.

“I want people to remember me that way, that this is a person who gave everything for the game, for himself, for the fans. At the end of the day, I'm just lucky to have become a professional gamer. I want them to remember that this was a stubborn guy who never gave up, no matter what.”

i really don't give a fuck about your terrible opinion, but a guy was the best player in the world for two years in a row is a legend of the game no matter what you say. "oh, he played the game before of everyone else and because of it had a better performance" so why the others who played before everyone else against him, were worse than him? get_right with forest were two of the firts 1.6 pros to go to csgo, and they were very important to build the pro scene of the game. he is a legend.

While in recent history, Get_RighT has not been performing well. he was one of the founding fathers of competitive cs. he's lived and breathed this game for most of his life. and while his acheivements may fade in comparison of those such as astralis, we know he's a legend. the man made the first 5 major grand finals, he was the best of 2013 and 2014. and arguably he is the reason why cs became as big as he did. him and NiP were the first adopters of CS:GO and they helped others realise it's potential. your entitled to no be impressed by him. however slating his legacy is just wrong. In terms of legacy, few can compare, only f0rest, KennyS, Dev1ce, xyp9x, dupreeh, s1mple and shox can really compare to what this man has done. feel free to not like him. but don't disrespect him.

“I'm not going to say that I'm retiring, because you never know, one day I might feel the urge and the need to compete again,” he tells HLTV.org in a call. “But for the time being, I'm taking a break, and that break could be extended into retirement or not. Who knows? The future will tell.”

The only way to have a perfect legacy is when you die after your peak. Even if u retire people will look down on you, but if u die ppl will be "oh, imagine if this guy was still alive."

Why? He is 30. There is nothing wrong with players eventually getting bad and still wanting to play at least somewhat actively. He had his time at the top of the pyramid. If he wants to stream for his fans, good for him.

as I said above, I think he would fit perfectly to the analyst desk, as other retired legends did, such as seang@res or pimp. On the other hand lots of pros who retired tried to stream then for their fans and failed at it and eventually decided to stop...Im just worried that it could end up like this for him as well
2021-01-16 17:04
He will be streaming and creating content and stuff like that, probably do some analyst work aswell.

Today is a sad day, such a cool guy, that insired a whole generation. CS is as big as it is now much because of this oldschool players like him that decided to give a chance to this new game insted of keeping in 1.6/CSS where they were already proved. Such respect, perfect timming to leave, before his legacy gets lost by the new fags.

This must be so hard on him to give it all up because of the health issues he have been dealing with since 2013. Damn, hearing he talk about it all on his stream atm makes it crazy that he even fought this long to try to play competitive. I knew a bit about his health issues, but did not know he had this much problems. Crohns, and ear problem I knew of and that he have been in and out from hospital while being playing LAN at the same time. But damn. For me he is the GOAT. And hope he will feel much better with doing this, he is worth it. But I really want to see him compete because that is really what he wants, but health goes before everything.

I'm actually surprised, I mean, he is still really good imo. I know that he has health problems and all of that, but I think that he could and should keep on playing profesionally. Anyway, he is my favourite player of all time, I wish him the best, and I hope I will see him playing proffesionaly again.

Sweden DEFENSE!
You have to understand that the pressure to compete is immense. I mean, he could technically join a tier2 team which paid just enough salary for him to survive and keep playing there and do really good. But does he want to? Probably not. He's got that winner mentality, if he competes he wants to be the best, just like every other professional player. If you dont have that mentality, you will never reach the top. So if he were to compete again he would have to go through all the internal conflicts with himself that he is too old, his reactions arent there anymore, he is going to get outaimed by the youngsters... And the pressure from the scene would be incredible as well. I think its a great decision. This way he can still be involved in esports but from a different point of view.

On stream ( live right now) he is playing csgo and said tomorrow will play csgo and whatever his viewers wants him to play. Now go away you are beyong dumb. No one is moving to valorant in 2021 ... that game died like 1 month after it came out.

Although I haven't been around for that long, didn't see you at your absolute best. I'm still sad because it serves as a reminder that time has complete control over us, it's inevitable for everyone to just lose last bits of strength and obey to the fate. I remember watching DreamHack 2014 Major final, I believe it was the closest period to your actual prime time, you looked so happy and ambitious for the future and then there was nothing, it was harsh reality. You were such a bright star, but even stars will start shimmering and eventually become too dim to shine a light. Whenever CS is mentioned on the time line, there will be GeT_RiGhT in it.

The very first comment on this post is stupid. -- #30 (i.imgur.com/pVaTgjq.png) No, GeT_RiGhT wasn't a player on a high level for only 2-3 years. He was a Top 2 player for 6 straight years (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014) and including the best player of the year for 3 years (2009, 2012, 2013, 2014) No. 2 best player of the year in 2010, 2011. Device was never the best player in any year. GTR was no.1 for 4 years and no.2 for two years.

Bye GTR legend

2 years ago after leaving NiP was when he should have retired, a legend. Instead he stubbornly tried to make it work and drove his legacy into the dirt. I remember his official retirement post had 2k comments in 1 hour 30 mins. Now? 2 days and only 500. He tarnished his reputation and in my eyes isn't considered a legend anymore. You won't be missed!

Pure dribel, nearly everyone that isn't new to the game will remember him as a legend and won't care about those last years. As for the others if he had quit before they wouldn't have heard of him anyway.

All the best to you Christopher 'GeT_RiGhT' Alesund! A whole CS-generation won't forget you!

A true legend - in and outside of the server. Passionate, emotional and funny as well. Never let the hatred get to you, champ. Good luck in whatever you decide to do! Have always been a fan, and will be.

Legend. Just take a look at what CS was 10 years ago in part to this amazing player. youtube.com/watch?v=t-_sbGYTwsU&ab_chann.. Some of us will never forget those times. I know I won't

#30 I never comment here because I simple don't care enough or keep track of todays CS that much. But saying he was only relevant before everyone else got good is just straight out stupid. He was a top tier player for multiple years after NIP stopped dominating, he was 1 of the best players in CS 1.6 from the time he joined Fnatic in what? 2009? He's one of the best players who have touched the game, I only played with him twice and a couple games against him and he also seemed like a nice person chatting in thoose 2 games (1.6). You're either a troll or an idiot, I hope for your sake it's #1 because that's atleast fixable.
