Legendary Counter-Strike professional Christopher ‘GeT_RiGhT’ Alesund has weighed in on the abusive fans drama within the CS scene by sharing a story of his own personal experience.

North, a Danish esports organization, took to Twitter on January 21, to call on the CS:GO community to kick out the hate-filled comments towards teams and players. Many other orgs and players came out in support of North and echoed their sentiments.

Now, Swedish player GeT_RiGhT has joined their call to the community to tone down the hateful comments and abuse towards players.

DreamhackGet_Right has been a CS pro since the 1.6 days.

In a 13-Tweet thread, the Ninjas in Pyjamas legend broke down how, in his early days of playing Counter-Strike, his mother would regularly receive phone calls in the early hours of the morning to the family home from a man looking to speak to GeT_RiGhT.

“She didn’t tell me about this ’til months past and I asked her what this person wanted. She said this person wanted to talk to me, even though I had almost moved out from the family house… but she never told this person if I was home or still lived there,” he added.

The Swede explained how the calls became a “routine” for his mother as she would answer the late-night calls and speak to the voice on the other end.

The calls weren’t from anyone looking to offer GeT_RiGhT a spot on a new team or sponsorship and they sound like they were somewhat sinister. They came from, in his mother’s words,  a “lost man that needed someone to talk to.”

Get_Right also added that: “We live in a world (esport gaming etc) and we all do it for the love of it no? So don’t just wish someone to die because they “lost you money” or you think they are “terrible” because X/Y reason.. it’s never helping. Never.”

Esports platform FACEIT is putting together a host of leagues for collegiate North American teams to vie for a $55,000 pot across League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Valorant circuits.

The deadline for college players to sign up will be November 1, after which the TO will move ahead with a two-division system for CSGO & Valorant as well as regional qualifiers for League of Legends.

For the two tactical shooters, FACEIT will have a “Premier league, for top-tier competition, and Contenders league, for more casual competition.”

College players should note that the Premier and Contenders league will have a registration fee of $125 per team and $75 per team, respectively.

FACEIT will give aspiring esports players a chance to compete for cash in Valorant, LoL, and CSGO.

CSGO & Valorant leagues

From the $55,000 pot, CSGO will get a $30,000 prize pool, $5,000 of which will supply the Contenders league winnings. Meanwhile, FACEIT is putting $10,000 up for grabs in Valorant.

Both Premier and Contenders will have a 10-week Swiss format regular season that will lead into a single elimination playoff in Spring 2021.

Matches start on November 5-10 with the regular season’s 10th match scheduled for February 18-23, so student teams will have months to plan, prepare, and play out the full season.

The playoffs are planned to take place in March through April in the new year, with the Championship following after.

Riot Games
FACEIT will hold collegiate varsity events for Valorant and CSGO.

League of Legends

FACEIT will produce a three-phase LoL circuit that will eventually decide which team claims the biggest take of the $15,000 prize pool.

State-wide qualifiers, consisting of 16 teams each, are going to take place in the US and Canada. These will decide which teams make it into the Regional Stage. The top four teams that make it out of the Regionals will go on to the Finals for the biggest share of the $15,000 pot.

The breakdown of target dates for FACEIT’s state-wide LoL events.

Every state qualifying tournament will require a $100 registration fee, 50% of which goes to the prize pool. FACEIT gave this example: “if the California tournament has 10 teams, there will be a $500 prize for that.”
