You may remember us from a few years back. Now we are back, stronger than ever.
We have a simple mission. We will create the first truly professional eSports gaming organisation in Finland. Full time players that can concentrate fully on gaming, with backing from Finnish long time eSports pioneers and professionals.
We’ve had professional organisations in Finland in the past, but none has ever been able to provide circumstances where the players have had the opportunity to consider themselves as fulltime professional players. We can happily say our team now is in that situation and with our backing we’re certain they can simply focus on one thing: playing.
– Joona “natu” Leppänen, member of ENCE eSports management
To achieve our set gaming goals, we recruited a brilliant quintet of players to sport the ENCE colours.
ENCE Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
- Aleksi “allu” Jalli @allucsgo
- Tom “stonde” Glad @stondecsgo
- Miikka “suNny” Kemppi @sunnycsgo
- Juho “juhob” Lampinen @juhobcs
- Mikko “xartE” Välimaa @xartecsgo
Allu is without a doubt one of the best and most well-known CS:GO players in the world right now. He brings the necessary experience to make these talented individuals into a functioning team. There is a lot of work to be done but we have a strong belief in the team and our organisation.
– Petri “Procyon” Hämälä, ENCE eSports CEO
ENCE eSports consists of some of the most illustrious people in Finnish eSports history. As CEO we have Petri “Procyon” Hämälä, who has organised multiple big international tournaments in Finland through the years. Helping to manage the team we welcome Joona “natu” Leppänen, who has a 15-year Counter-Strike career under his belt and more recently has been seen as a commentator and analyst at multiple international tournaments. He is accompanied by Tomi “lurppis” Kovanen andJuha “aNGelDusT” Kurppa, who also bring their know-how in developing the organisation. We have also invited Pekka “pehu” Aakko, known for being the main organiser behind Assembly, to be the Chairman of the board at ENCE. With this lineup of people, we have a great mixture of international expertise and passion for eSports.
Finland has never had a CS team with proper backing before, so I am very excited to be a part of ENCE. With allu starring in the team, we know with hard work ENCE can bring Finland back to contention for titles, which is what Counter-Strike is all about.
– Tomi “lurppis” Kovanen, member of ENCE eSports management
We are very excited for the year 2016 and what we can make of it. This is just the beginning.
