Career

Counter-Strike 1.6 Career

GeT_RiGhT started playing 1.6 after his brother Robin introduced him to the game.

In 2007, GeT_RiGhT started playing for Begrip, placed 2nd at spiXelania 2007. Later that year he joined SK Gaming which placed 4th at EM II - Finals on March 9, 2008.

In early 2009 Alesund joined Fnatic, replacing Oskar "ins" Holm. This proved to be a good move, as the team won the WEG e-Stars 2009: King of the Game soon after. In March, GeT_RiGhT won his first major, IEM Season III against the Polish team MeetYourMakers. They then won KODE5 2009, WEG e-Stars 2009, IEM IV Dubai, and placed 2nd at IEM IV Chengdu. GeT_RiGhT also won the European Nations Championship, representing the Swedish national team. They had second-place finish at World Cyber Games 2009, this time losing to the same Polish team of AGAiN. In December, they topped off the 2009 season with a victory at World e-Sports Masters 2009. Fnatic's 2009, had been the most successful for the organisation at the time. Alesund was then named e-Sports Player of the Year and Counter-Strike Player of the Year. In 2010, Fnatic weren't as successful, but continued to perform well, getting 2nd at the IEM IV European Chapmionships, and IEM IV at the start of the year. After a very successful individual year, GeT_RiGhT placed 2nd on HLTV's top 20 of 2010.

In 2011, GeT_RiGhT started a third stint at SK Gaming, and was joined by Fnatic teammates Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg and Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl. After a few minor results, SK won DreamHack Summer 2011, with GeT_RiGhT being selected as the MVP. SK continued to have some success, winning IEM6 6C New York and a Counter-Strike Major, ESWC 2011. Once again, GeT_RiGhT was placed #2 on HLTV top's 20, this time for 2011.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Career

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. 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.

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. HLTV.org rated him as the best player in both 2013 and 2014 in their end-of-year rankings due to his high level of play in tournament finals and other important games.

In 2019, GeT_RiGhT was reportedly set to be replaced after the StarLadder Major: Berlin 2019. GeT_RiGhT officially stepped down from the roster late September.

On January 21st, 2020, GeT_RiGhT reunited with his former NiP teammates (f0rest, Xizt, Friberg, and Fifflaren) in Dignitas.
