Counter-Strike: Global Offensive legend Christopher ‘GeT_RiGhT’ Alesund had a less than pleasant return to the game with a 0-2 trouncing by Virtus.pro. 

GeT_RiGhT is one of the most famous CS:GO players in the world, he has played the game competitively since its release and was part of one of the best teams of all time – a Ninjas in Pyjamas squad that set an incredible 87-0 map win streak on LAN.

He was dropped from the roster in September 2019 after seven years of constant competition, and after a small break has finally played another competitive match, his first outside of the NiP organization.

GeT_RiGhT played for Ninjas in Pyjamas CSGO team for 7 years.

The Swedish legend stood in for Mousesports’ Robin ‘ropz’ Kool in an ECS Season 8 match against Virtus.pro. Ropz was an unexpected replacement, as he had not competed in over a month, and when he did, he showed poor form, but fans of the player were excited to see him in action nevertheless. 

Unfortunately for them, Mousesports ended up losing the match 0-2 with GeT_RiGhT putting in a below-par performance, securing only 24 kills across two maps while having one of the lowest ratings throughout the series, with a rating of just 0.75, far below his average of 1.10. Similarly, his average damage per round (ADR) fell from 75 to 60, which adds up as there were 51 rounds played this series.

It was clear, however, that they had not had much time to practice and thus made some critical errors leading to their loss, such as losing one round in a 4v2 situation due to no one checking on the bomb.

Regardless, Christopher seemed in high spirits after the match, stating on Twitter: “That was horrible. Thanks for using me however, Mousesports.” He wasn’t impressed with his performance, but no doubt, enjoyed the competition once again.

Many fans will be wondering what the future holds for GeT_RiGhT, who is without a team for the first time in his CSGO career and has stated that he is not yet ready to hang up his mouse and keyboard.

He has not yet commented on his future, however, after a strong performance with the European squad, he may be a reliable option for many top teams if he is able to come back into form.
