GeT_RiGhT, f0rest, and friberg join forces for RMR qualifier
The legendary trio will once again compete together at the Europe open qualifiers.
Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund announced on Twitter that his team, d00m, will be participating in the open qualifiers for the IEM Road to Rio Europe RMR. The team's all-Swedish lineup includes former Ninjas in Pyjamas teammates Adam "friberg" Friberg, Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg, and Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson, with Jack "Jackinho" Ström Mattsson rounding out the five-man squad.
This marks the first time the trio will compete together in nearly two years, since their time at Dignitas. In September 2020, GeT_RiGhT was benched from the team's active roster and announced his retirement in January 2021. f0rest and friberg then stayed with Dignitas until the organization announced the release of their entire CS:GO division in June 2022.
GeT_RiGhT, f0rest, and friberg all made their Global Offensive debuts with Ninjas in Pyjamas in 2012 alongside fellow Swedes Richard "Xizt" Landström and Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson. The group was immediately a dominant force in the early days of CS:GO and proved it by setting an 87-map unbeaten streak — a record that still stands today. They are also the only team in history to reach five consecutive Major grand finals, a streak that saw the Swedes win ESL One Cologne 2014.
Fast-forward nearly a decade later, GeT_RiGhT, friberg, and f0rest's legacies are at a level only few have matched. With countless medals, distinctions, and trophies to their names, the trio are amongst the most renowned individuals to ever play Counter-Strike.
The quintet will compete in the Europe open qualifiers leading up to the next Major, IEM Rio. From there, qualified teams will battle it out at their respective regions' Regional Major Rankings alongside teams who finished in the top 16 at PGL Major Antwerp. The European RMR tournaments have a total of 16 spots at IEM Rio on offer.
d00m will play in the first open qualifier with the following roster:
