The Finnish based organization, ENCE eSports has announced a new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team.
The team is again composed of some of the most promising players from the Finnish scene.
The announcement was made on the official website of the team where the team managers stated:
"ENCE is very excited to announce our new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive lineup. ENCE after all, as an organization was born at first to support Counter-Strike in Finland, and with many of our management members having had their eSports careers in the game, it's only natural to step back into it.
Thinking about different teams on the market right now, we had a decision to make. There's two directions to take; either support already established lineups with players that have already “done it all", or choose to support teams that have a lot of potential in the future. In the end, we came to the decision that the first team pick would be an investment to the future.
There were many different aspects that we looked into when deciding what players we wanted to join the organisation and we felt that it was better to take a little longer and make the best decision rather than rush into one just to have a team."
One of the players, Tony 'arvid' Niemela had this to say:
"We are extremely excited and proud about joining and representing ENCE as they are the number one organization in Finland. Working with ENCE opens up a lot of possibilities, and with their support, I believe our improvement will be even faster and more efficient than it was before.
We will do our very best to fulfill everyone's high expectations towards ENCE's CS team. We aim to establish ourselves as the number one team in Finland and gain international recognition. We are also eager to prove that there in fact exists talent in Finland outside of the already widely known teams."
The new ENCE eSports team is:
- Ville 'rEplan' Ijas
- Simo 'Leaf' Mykkanen
- Joel 'joel b' Borgstrom
- Mikael 'ociriz' Karkinen
- Tony 'arvid' Niemela
