GeT_RiGhT signs to Fnatic, while flusha moves on to NiP
The news of legendary CS:GO player Christopher 'GeT_RiGhT' Alesund signing for Fnatic comes as a shock for the community, with the Swedish player deciding to change his home after an almost three-year run.
Arguably one the best CS players of all time Christopher 'GeT_RiGhT' Alesund has been playing for Ninjas in Pyjamas ever since Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was launched in late August, 2012. Today, after a little less than a full three-year run the Swedish star player is making his first team change in CS:GO. Alesund will be moving to another top Swedish team, Fnatic, who are also considered as one of the biggest rivals of his ex-team, Ninjas in Pyjamas.
The transfer comes as a shock to the community as GeT_RiGhT never expressed any signs of dissatisfaction with his now former team so it's definitely an unexpected move. In order for this transfer to be fully completed Fnatic had to send one of their players over to Ninjas. The decision was made and Robin 'flusha' Rönnquist will be heading over to NiP. Flusha had been together with Fnatic ever since Swedish organization picked up the ex-Epsilon roster back in 2013.
This change could affect Aleksi 'allu' Jalli the most, who sat next to GeT_RiGhT at each LAN event. Jalli probably got used to the high-fives from Alesund after each round, while Xizt was sometimes ignoring him. This time, he will have a new teammate who also likes giving high-fives, as we can see below.
However, the biggest shock for Aleksi 'allu' Jalli will be the news that comes again from Fnatic, their biggest rivals. Fnatic and Red Bull have announced their partnership which exclusively gives Fnatic rights to choose who is able to use their drinks during the LAN events in CS:GO. It is highly expected that NiP will be forbidden from drinking it which will leave allu being able only to gaze at it longingly. Will this affect his gameplay? It's still to be seen but one thing is certain, allu won't be the same without the Red Bull.
|Ninjas in Pyjamas' roster:||Fnatic's roster:|
|Richard 'Xizt' Landström||Markus 'pronax' Wallsten|
