ENCE are happy to announce the latest addition to the organization in the form of Vesa ‘Welmu’ Hovinen. The Finnish Protoss player will be the talent that will represent ENCE in Starcraft II as we launch the new division today along side our Counter Strike team. ENCE is always looking to expand into different games and Starcraft II remains one of the most popular eSports on the planet and with talented players like Welmu residing here in Finland it is a move we are excited to make. Below you can find what Welmu and Petri had to say about this move
Vesa ‘Welmu’ Hovinen on joining ENCE
“I’ve been looking for a new team for a while now and when Petri approached me about joining ENCE I knew what I wanted to do. ENCE is most certainly a team that can provide the best enviroment and we both have ambitious expectations. I started playing LotV a little bit behind others and early results were quite disappointing, but now I’m close to my old top shape and with the help of ENCE I will start showing great results again.”
Petri Hämälä, CEO of ENCE eSports on Welmu
“We’ve been looking for possible talents in different titles since we launched ENCE back in January. Our mission is to create the first truly professional eSports gaming organization in Finland and now we found the correct player to represent ENCE in the field of StarCraft II. I’ve known Vesa since 2011 and followed his career closely and there have been many setbacks due to different organizations that have disturbed his progress. We will be looking to provide a stable environment where he can improve, focus on the game and be a professional gamer.”
With an exciting year ahead for Starcraft II we look forward to working with Vesa and helping him to become the player he wants to be. A lot of changes for the WCS and tournaments this year will be the perfect opportunity for both of us to start this campaign together and we hope that you will all help welcome and support Vesa as he begins his journey as an ENCE player.
