Christopher Alesund (born May 29, 1990), known by his alias GeT_RiGhT, is a Swedish professional Counter-Strike series player. He is currently a member of Ninjas in Pyjamas (NiP). He is considered one of the best Counter-Strike players in the history of the series.[2] He began playing competitively in 2007.[3] Alesund has previously been a member of SK Gaming, Fnatic, and Begrip.

In 2007 GeT_RiGhT and Begrip placed 2nd at spiXelania 2007.[3] In later that year he joined SK Gaming. SK placed 4th at EM II - Finals on March 9, 2008. In early 2009 Alesund joined Fnatic. Fnatic won the WEG e-Stars 2009: King of the Game. They then placed 3rd/4th at IEM Season IV - gamescom and then 2nd at IEM Season IV - Chengdu. They topped off the 2009 season with a second-place finish at World Cyber Games 2009 and a victory at World e-Sports Masters 2009.[4] After two seasons GeT_RiGhT started a third stint at SK Gaming, and he was joined by Fnatic teammates Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg and Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl.[5] In July 2012, in anticipation of switching Counter -Strike versions to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, he left SK Gaming and joined Ninjas in Pyjamas. GeT_RiGhT was an integral part of this dominant NiP team that went 87 matches without a loss.[6] NiP won the ESL Major Series One 2013 spring tournament, defeating Fnatic 2-0. NiP and GeT_RiGhT finished tied for 5th-8th at ESWC 2015. The next month NiP finished 5th at ESL One Cologne 2015.[7]

GeT_RiGhT is widely considered to be one of the greatest Counter-Strike players of all time in both versions of the game. While never considered the best at aiming in the series, he is well known for his highly consistent play, success in clutch and high-pressure situations, and for popularizing the "lurker" role among teams.[citation needed] rated him as the best player of 2014 in their end-of-year rankings due to his high level of play in tournament finals and other important games.[8]
