ENCE was doing well even outside of that one major run. They won Blast after that. Placed 5th-8th next major with likes of Team Liquid, Navi, Team Vitality (not best placement, but look these other teams). They were one of the better teams until they benched Aleksib even placind 2nd in 2 S tier tournaments. Also even the fact that G2 is interested in him and is possibly ready to pay quite hefty to get him shows that they must have heard stuff behind the scenes or see a lot of potential in him. A lot of people have said that he is really smart guy and good at in-game leading.
