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.

StarLadderGeT_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. 

DreamHackGeT_RiGhT is one of the most famous CSGO players in the world.

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.

Valve lifts Fnatic star KRIMZ’s mysterious CSGO VAC ban

Valve has lifted the VAC ban on CSGO legend KRIMZ, and although fans think it was probably due to a matchmaking tool, the reasons are still unknown.

The CSGO community stood still on November 28 after Freddy ‘KRIMZ’ Johansson announced he had been VAC banned. Valve never specified why, which made the situation a bit of a mystery.

“It seems that my account got vac banned,” he said. “CSGO can you fix this asap pls.” It sounded like he was probably more confused than anyone else and was adamant he’d done nothing wrong.

CSGO fans think he might have been banned for using a third-party tool named esportal to find matches. However, there has been no official word to support it.

FNATIC coach Andreas “Samuelsson” Samuelsson issued a statement not long after. “We have reached out to Valve, TOs, and third-party community websites… to understand the nature of this unexpected shutdown,” he said. “We have no reason to believe this is the consequence of any intentional use of any illegal program.”

Either way, it didn’t take Valve long to rectify the issue. They’ve already lifted the ban, and it’s been a huge relief to CSGO players and FNATIC fans around the world.

The first one to spill the beans was ‘DonHaci.’ “Krimz has been unbanned,” he said. “His VAC ban has been removed from his Steam page.

KRIMZ’s Steam profile isn’t private, which means anyone can take a look and see for themselves. His fans have been pouring in and leaving comments to celebrate and share their relief.

Still, nobody is more excited than the man himself. KRIMZ made a brief statement on Twitter and expressed his gratitude for having it fixed. “I’m free [motherf**ers], he said. “Thank you CSGO for sorting it out quickly.”

Interestingly, Valve still hasn’t explained why they banned KRIMMZ in the first place. KRIMMZ hasn’t elaborated on it either.

In the end, though, the key takeaway is that it appears to have been a mistake. The CSGO community is thrilled to have its favorite son back.
