ENCE 0-2 NiP

ENCE 1-2 Optic



We are just around the corner from the London Minor European Championships and ENCE are ready to get things going. After what most would say was a successful ESL One Cologne and some dominant performances over top tier teams, the Finnish players will be hoping to do the same thing at the Major. Standing in their way though are 7 other hungry European teams that want to make it to the Major also with LeftOut, 3DMAX and Optic being the first challenges in Group A. LeftOut will be the first game of the group for ENCE and they will be looking for revenge on the French side for their previous defeat to them. Read more HERE for how ENCE qualified for the event.

The Major itself will be one of the official events supported by Valve which means not only are the best of the best there to compete for the title, but also a $1,000,000 prize pool is up for grabs. ENCE have been on the rise lately and at Cologne they have shown that they are ready to take on the top tier teams. The Major will be their biggest and most challenging event to date but first they will need to claim a spot through the Minor.
