Sources: Dignitas targeting GeT_RiGhT as Possible Fifth in New CS:GO Lineup
Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund is the potential fifth member of the prospective Dignitas Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster, according to multiple sources close to the team.
The idea of GeT_RiGhT joining was teased by fellow Swedish player Jesper "JW" Wecksell on the HLTV Confirmed podcast, and DBLTAP can confirm he is the target. As DBLTAP first reported Saturday, Dignitas is exploring a return to CS:GO featuring Norweigan AWPer Håkon "hallzerk" Fjærlih and three of GeT_RiGhT's former Ninjas in Pyjamas teammates.
Adding GeT_RiGhT to the mix would mean almost a complete reunion of the Major-winning Ninjas in Pyjamas roster. The only member from that period not expected to join the project as a player is Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson, who hasn't played professionally since late 2014.
Richard "Xizt" Landström and Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg remain under contract with their current organizations. Hallzerk has already been purchased by the Dignitas organization, while GeT_RiGhT and Adam "friberg" Friberg are free agents at the moment. It is unclear at this time how far along in the signing or transfer process all of the players are. F0rest is slated for multiple events over the next few weeks with the NiP organization, which mars the timeline for a potential swap.
Dignitas has had multiple lineups in men's CS:GO since the inception of the game, with one of them including four members of the current Astralis roster that has won four Majors. Dignitas re-branded since dropping their previous team in North America, having previously been known as "Team Dignitas."
