Christopher ‘GeT_RiGhT’ Alesund is a veteran in the professional CS:GO circuit. Currently playing for Dignitas, the player reveals that he “still gets death threats” from the community.
GeT_RiGhT is recognised as one of the best CSGO players in the world but the status hasn’t been stable recently. After getting signed by Dignitas, the player has been receiving hateful comments and death threats, as he reveals in an interview.
GeT_RiGhT and his team recently returned from vacation to return back to their practice regimen. The official Dignitas interview was supposed to reveal the insights about team’s future performance but the player’s comments about death threats caught an eye of the CS:GO community.
When the interviewer asked GeT_RiGhT to respond on people marking them as “the team that got together to have a comfortable way of retiring”, the player makes some shocking revelation.
GeT_RiGhT states that he does not feel offended by people saying such things but there are other bigger issues. He says, “The worst thing is that I still get death threats, I get people calling my mother out and other stupid shit that I should die.”
He further mentions that its okay for people to have their opinions but the entire thing is taking a toll on him and everyone gets “a bit angry” after hearing such comments.
GeT_RiGhT aslo says that when the team was formed, they knew it was going to be a struggle and “it was going to be a long and tough run”. According to him, the team was not formed “just take a paycheck” but their ultimate goal is “to improve, become better and have an opportunity to play in a big tournament, perform well and win it.”
Although the player believes in contrast of opinions, the hateful messages still take a toll on him. GeT_RiGhT ends the interview on a good note thanking the fans for being supportive and saying “we’re not here to just have fun. We are here to compete and show the fans that we still got it!”
The team will be practicing in teir one and teir two tournaments as the squad wants to change their mindset and play more official tournaments rather than major qualifiers and other big events like BLAST events and Dreamhack.
