Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund has been intimately involved with the Counter-Strike esport scene since Counter-Strike 1.6 and has one of the longest playing careers in all of CSGO.
GeT_RiGhT started his career in 2007, spending time on Gamepassion and a short stint on the organization with which he would become synonymous: Ninjas in Pyjamas. Getting a name for himself as a passionate and hardworking player, he caught the attention of German organization SK Gaming at the end of 2007. Over the next year leading into 2009, GeT_RiGhT would bounce back and forth between SK Gaming and an assortment of lesser teams.
In 2009, Fnatic came calling for the young GeT_RiGhT, adding him to a roster alongside future NiP teammate Patrick “f0rest” Lindberg. Over the next two years, Fnatic would take home a fourth-place finish at the third annual IEM European Championships alongside a host of other solid finishes. GeT_RiGhT capped off his run with Fnatic with a prestigious accolade as the Esports Awards awarded him the title of Esports Player of the Year.
As his time on Fnatic wound down, GeT_RiGhT and f0rest would make the move back to SK Gaming and play beside of the best-known names in Counter-Strike before becoming one himself. Both f0rest and GeT_RiGhT would compete with Dennis "dennis" Edman, Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström, and Marcus "Delpan" Larsson during their time with SK.
Once the two joined forces with Robin “Fifflaren” Johansson and Richard “Xizt” Landström, however, GeT_RiGhT’s career became inexorably tied to Ninjas in Pyjamas and the roster that he spent the next seven years as a member of. In their first years together, NiP made it to the grand finals of five out of six Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Major tournaments following CSGO’s release in 2012.
GeT_RiGhT was also instrumental in setting a Counter-Strike record that stands to this day. Between August 2012 and April 2013, NiP won 87 maps in a row in LAN competitions before Virtus.pro ended their streak at StarLadder’s StarSeries Season V with a 16-10 win against the Sweedish roster. Regardless, GeT_RiGhT’s success would continue over the coming few years before the Ninjas in Pyjamas traded out Adam “friberg” Friberg for several different players. That marked what looked like the beginning of the end of GeT_RiGhT’s career at NiP.
He had flashes of his old performances, especially when NiP won IEM Oakland 2016, but GeT_RiGhT’s last years with Ninjas in Pyjamas weren’t his best. After rumors circulated ahead of the 2019 StarLadder Berlin Major that GeT_RiGhT was on his way out, the emotional player gave a heartfelt speech after NiP’s elimination at ESL One Cologne 2019 during which he thanked fans for their support and reaffirmed his desire to continue as a professional Counter-Strike player.
GeT_RiGhT’ was removed from NiP shortly after the Berlin Major, but quickly found work as an analyst at FACEIT’s Esports Championship Series Season 8 finals. Around this time, a rumor placed GeT_RiGhT, f0rest, friberg, and Xizt back together again, this time on a Dignitas team that was reportedly looking to reenter the Counter-Strike scene.
GeT_RiGhT, friberg, and Xizt were announced as part of DIG’s new lineup in December 2019, with f0rest following soon after in January 2020. Together with his former teammates and with fellow former teammate Fifflaren acting as head coach, GeT_RiGhT made his return to professional CSGO under the Dignitas banner at the European Minor Qualifier on January 31, 2020.
