Counter-Strike legend Christopher ‘GeT_RiGhT’ Alesund got emotional on stream after he was met with massive fan support in the wake of an announcement about his future with Ninjas in Pyjamas.

It was announced on June 19 that not only are Ninjas in Pyjamas making an immediate roster change, bringing in Nicolas ‘Plopski’ Zamora for Dennis ‘dennis’ Edman, but that they would be looking for a replacement for NiP legend GeT_RiGhT after the StarLadder Berlin Major.

The move would truly mark an end of an era, with GeT_RiGhT have been a central force in NiP’s legendary run in the first years of CS:GO, and one of just two players remaining from the original roster alongside Patrik ‘f0rest’ Lindberg.

Adela Sznajder/ESLGeT_RiGhT is one of the most legendary Counter-Strike players of all time and an iconic member of NiP.

In the wake of the announcement, fans flooded to GeT_RiGhT’s stream to spam his Twitch chat with hearts and messages of support, causing the Counter-Strike veteran to tear up at the outpouring.

Later in his stream, GeT_RiGhT took a moment to discuss the news, stating that he knew that his spot on the team was no longer secure from a week prior to the official announcement.

“The first reaction that I got from it was not really sad to be honest. It was difficult to hear it, because I’ve been here for almost seven years now. I’ve played with f0rest for 10-plus years.”

“Nothing is certain, nothing at all. I haven’t even thought about quitting, I haven’t even thought about retiring, I haven’t thought about anything with it. We had talks about it, I understand the situation, I respect the decisions, I’m very happy that I can at least play one more major.”

While it does seem likely GeT_RiGhT’s time with Ninjas in Pyjamas, at least as a player, is coming to an end, fans might hold out a little hope that his departure might not be completely finalized. While he says there is a “big chance” that he will not play for the team after the Major, he refrained from being definitive on the matter.

Regardless, fans will still see two massive events from GeT_RiGhT with NiP over the coming months.

“The situation is like this: I will be playing the next two events, [ESL One] Cologne and the [StarLadder Berlin] Major. After the Major is done, there is a chance, a big one, not a small one, that I will not continue with NiP after that.”

ESL One Cologne is due to take place on July 2-7, while the StarLadder Berlin Major runs from August 23 to September 8, although Ninjas in Pyjamas will begin the tournament from the Legends Stage, starting August 28.


How arT’s aggression is leading FURIA’s CSGO charge to site

Andrei ‘arT’ Piovezan has led FURIA to the top of NA Counter-Strike thanks not only to his calling but also his ultra-aggressive playstyle. 

Dexerto explores the Brazilian’s signature aggression and how it has defined him as the most offensive player in CSGO history. 

His playstyle slowly leaked into his strategies, making FURIA one of the most aggressive teams in the world: allowing them to become the most successful T-side team over the last few months. 

This was clear during ESL Pro League 11 NA, where arT’s aggressive pushes and misdirection on Inferno led the team to a dominant win against the best NA had to offer. All this while delivering some of the most entertaining CS ever. 

The importance of his dual-role as a IGL and Entry-Fragger is not lost, allowing him to quickly adapt his calling after going first into bombsites. 

ArT has led FURIA to become true contenders on the world stage but now the difficult part begins: keeping ahead of the curve and keep the elements of surprise on his side.
