ENCE eSports is a Finnish multigaming organization whose primary aim is to make the Finnish esports scene more professional and consistent.

History[edit]

ENCE eSports was first founded in April 2013 by Petri "Procyon" Hämälä of Peliliiga, Toni "Chibulis" Jarkima, formerly of eXelon Gaming and Teemu "wabbit" Hiilinen of SEUL. On April 13, it was announced that the team known as TOOMUCHVIDEOGAMES would join the organization as their first CS:GO team.[1] The relationship between the players and the organization soon broke down, however, mostly stemming from the looming instability of the roster, and the team was finally removed from ENCE in late May.[2]

ENCE returned to Counter-Strike in September of the same year, when natu's walla walla wasp wackers joined the organization. In spite of multiple local LAN victories and various promising results in international tournaments, the team once again struggled with keeping their roster stable, with a total of 13 players having played for the team over its lifespan. Soon after it was announced that the team would not participate in DreamHack Summer 2014 due to a family tragedy concerning an unnamed player of the team, the organization stated on June 28 that they would shut down.[3]

On December 23, 2015, ENCE's Facebook header was changed to one with a scrambled iteration of their logo, with a text saying "rebooting"[4]; thus adding more fuel to the fire of rumors of former NiP member allu creating a new fully Finnish team. After a number of cryptic tweets from various notable members of the Finnish esports community, most notably one by suNny, featuring him making a thumbs up in front of a contract with ENCE's logo, on January the organization formally announced their return on their website. As frequently rumored, the team was confirmed to feature allu plus the consistent MIXCAT quartet of suNny, xartE, Juhob and stonde.

Timeline[edit]

  • February 16 - ENCE announce their new 2017 line-up.[21]
  • June 20 - ENCE announce that they have parted ways with their line-up.[22]
