CS:GO Legends GeT_RiGhT, F0rest, Friberg Unite for European RMR Qualifier
The legendary Swedish trio take a swing at the European RMR Qualifiers.
The Swedish trio of legendary CS:GO players Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund, Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg, and Adam "friberg" Friberg came together to compete in the ongoing IEM Rio Major 2022: European RMR - Open Qualifier #1.
They were joined by Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson and Jack "Jackinho" Ström Mattsson to round out the five-man Swedish roster for the qualifier, playing under the moniker of d00m.
Many in the CS:GO community were excited to see the former Ninjas In Pyjamas (NIP) trio return to the competitive front after almost two years, having last played together under Dignitas in 2020.
Legendary Swedish trio of GeT_RiGhT, f0rest, friberg join forces to compete in the European RMR Qualifier
The three CS:GO legends from Sweden were once part of the indomitable NIP roster and they now joined hands to compete in the European RMR Qualifier. It is almost two years since GeT_RiGhT, f0rest, and friberg stepped into the competitive circuit together, having last played as a team under Dignitas in 2020.
The experienced entry fragger from Sweden, Lekr0, was also part of this team, alongside jackinho who took care of the AWP, while also being the youngest player on this lineup at 23 years of age.
Registered under the name d00m, the Swedish stack did not reach too far in the open qualifier, which was fine because no one had any expectations from them and folks were content to see the veterans enjoying themselves and having a good time in the server.
In its opening match during the 'Round of 512', d00m eliminated a team called premk1ngs with a '16-10' scoreline on Nuke. F0rest put on quite the show with 27 frags to his name and a 21.92% headshot accuracy.
Unfortunately, this was the only match that the team won as it failed to move past the 'Round of 256' where it went up against AVANGAR. Both teams fought hard on Nuke which went into overtime before AVANGAR managed to secure a '19-15' win.
The team's journey might have come to an early stop this time around but f0rest seems to have enjoyed it thoroughly and has hinted towards the possibility of another mixed lineup being formed for the next European RMR Qualifier.
Hopefully, the trio remains intact and continues competing under d00m, which is actually the name of a former CS 1.6 clan under which f0rest used to play many years ago.
