Counter-Strike has been around for some time now. With every new installment and update, the game's popularity only rises. There have been many great players in the game till now. In this blog, we'll discuss one such player who has won major CS Global tournaments and has become one of the top players in the game.
Dupreeh’s early life
Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen, a professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player for Team Vitality as an entry fragger, was born in Denmark on March 26, 1993. 2012 marked the beginning of Dupreeh's career as a member of 3DMAX. He took part in DreamHack Winter 2012, but the group did terribly. Dupreeh participated in three games that 3DMAX lost with an overall rating of 0.88.
But everything didn't come easy to Peter. He faced bad situations during his early years. He went through a lot to become the star player he is today. In 2010 tragedy hit the Danish player when his father was diagnosed with an aggressive form of chest cancer, turning his entire world upside-down. Despite the devastating news, dupreeh buried his head into his growing passion for becoming a successful CS:GO player, and ultimately achieving the unthinkable by becoming one of the world’s best. And it'd be safe to say, he did.
Deupreeh’s journey in the gaming industry
Peter began as an entry Fragger into the gaming scene. He has also served as the lurker in 2017 and the AWPer in early 2021 for his former team, Astralis.
He was a key player for Astralis from the beginning when it debuted in Copenhagen Wolves in January 2013 with former teammates René "cajunb" Borg and Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz, as well as Henrik "FeTiSh" Christensen and Steffen "3k2" Markussen. This came to an end in November 2021 when he was benched and later moved to Vitality.
Having played many roles in his gaming journey and after playing with multiple teams, Peter has cemented his name in the CS Global world.
Rasmussen’s first tournament
Dupreeh's promising career began with 3DMAX, but he only stayed there for four months before moving on to Flux. His time at Flux was brief as well; the team disbanded after only six days. When he joined Copenhagen Wolves, a Danish organization, his career truly began to take off.
Teams Dupreeh has been a part of
Team Vitality (2022-present)
Peter joined Team Vitality as an entry fragger together with his teammate, Magisk, and coach, zonic.
Team Astralis (2016-2021)
As the squad finished third in their first event together, Dupreeh's tenure at Astralis got off to a bright start. The group persisted in its positive trends, and the outcomes were respectable.
After Dupreeh and Astralis won the Esports Championship Series Season 2 - Finals, things really began to pick up speed for them since a month later, they competed in and won the ELEAGUE Major: Atlanta 2017. Dupreeh greatly contributed to the team's triumph and really impressed the CS:GO community. But the Danish stars needed more; one Major wasn't enough for them. Sadly, they were unsuccessful at the following Major, losing in the semifinal.
Everything fell into place for Dupreeh and Astralis in 2018. They won eight S-tier competitions, one of which was a Major, bringing Dupreeh's total Major victories to two. Dupreeh had his best year as an individual in 2018, coming in at number five on the annual HLTV top 20 polls.
Team Dignitas (2014-2015)
Dupreeh played with Karrigan, Cajunb, Dev1ce, and Xyp9x on Team Dignitas. At Team Dignitas, the group remained a unit for the entire time, producing some respectable outcomes. At the 2014 ESL One: Cologne Major, they finished third, which was a very respectable showing for the squad.
After 10 months of playing under the TSM banner, the team decided together with TSM that they shouldn’t be playing under their banner and became Team Questionmark as they were looking for a new organization.
Copenhagen Wolves (2012-2013)
When he joined Copenhagen Wolves, his career truly began to take off. He also met his teammates Xyp9x and Dev1ce there. The trio holds the record for having performed together for the longest period of time (7 years, 239 days). Dupreeh and the rest of the team at Copenhagen Wolves failed to accomplish anything particularly noteworthy. The team left Copenhagen Wolves after nearly a year and joined über G33KZ.
How did Dupreeh make $1,972,631.07 from gaming?
Dupreeh has earned himself a massive fortune by playing and winning multiple CS: GO tournaments. He is currently the richest CS: GO player in the world. Let's see how he made so much money from gaming.
• CS: GO organizations have made another mark after their teams win in most of the tournaments. Like, Astralis have given up their stranglehold on every tournament, and their dominant lineup is no longer around – with dev1ce having left for NIP and dupreeh and Magisk now playing for Vitality. Now, Vitality is making a mark being Dupreeh’s team.
• Dupreeh has taken over Astralis teammate Xyp9x as CS: GO’s highest earner of all time. But the 29-year-old Dane’s grip on the top spot is loosening after he missed the last months of the 2021 season following his benching by Astralis. He is now only about $2,000 ahead of the ‘Clutch Minister’, who recently leapfrogged dev1ce to second place.
