Danish in-game leader and CS:GO veteran Finn “karrigan” Andersen is close to signing with Mousesports, according to sources close to the player and organization.

Karrigan is still officially a member of FaZe Clan, but the two sides are working towards a transfer, a source told Dexerto.

Multiple organizations were interested in karrigan since his loan to the Team Envy organization during the IEM Katowice Minor stage. Team Envy were among the frontrunners, but talks did not progress as far as they have with Mousesports.

Karrigan played as a member of the Mousesports organization from 2010 to early 2012 while playing Counter-Strike 1.6. He would return to Mousesports later in the year after leaving Fnatic and played another six months for the organization while playing CS:GO.

Once he found his spot among the Danish scene in 2015, he became one of the best in-game leaders in the world. He has won multiple events over his career including: FACEIT Stage 1 and 2 Finals, StarSeries Season 3, ESL One: New York 2017, ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier 2017, IEM XIII Sydney, and EPICENTER 2018.

Mousesports announced early last month they had benched Chris “chrisJ” de Jong and Martin “STYKO” Styk, while also removing their coach Sergey “lmbt” Bezhano. 

Should they add Karrigan, they would need to fill another roster spot or bring a player back from the bench.

Multiple sources have confirmed to Dexerto that bringing a player back to the active lineup is a possibility and is still being considered at this time.

How GeT_RiGHT became CSGO’s first God

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive legend Christopher ‘GeT_RiGhT’ Alesund became the first god of the game by dazzling a generation of players, propelling the game’s meta by years, and leaving a historic mark not to be outdone anytime soon.

Since 2010, before CS:GO ever hit the market, GeT_RiGhT was already terrorizing teams in 1.6 with fellow Swede Patrik ‘f0rest’ Lindberg. Since their early 20s, the duo would rampage through events during their stints at Fnatic and SK Gaming.

If his career would have stopped in the 1.6 servers, his name would have still carried weight through the esports annals -but then, Global Offensive came out in 2012, where he would ascend to even greater heights of notoriety.

From the start, GeT_RiGhT would prove to be an instrumental force to reshape the Counter-Strike meta, specializing in dangerous lurks that would tilt opponents or catch them off guard.

It was risky, but so was his modus operandi. When early CS:GO pros would perfect their taps for long-range kills, he would hold Mouse1 to mow down entire teams with pinpoint recoil mastery.

He would soon be known for his multi-kills from a distance, without the need for consecutive fires, instead electing for choice bullet accuracy to push his team forward.

The #1 player in the world in 2013 and 2014, GeT_RiGhT, and the rest of the reformed Ninjas in Pyjamas that included Adam ‘Friberg,’ Robin ‘Fifflaren’ Johansson, Forest, and Richard ‘Xizt’ Landström would create an astounding 87-0 map win run.

GeT_RiGhT would go on to have an illustrious career filled with trophies, titles, and glory, becoming the first god of CS:GO along the way.
