ENCE to skip DH Summer

ENCE eSports veteran Joona "natu" Leppänen has announced that his team have pulled out of DreamHack Summer due to personal reasons.

The Finnish side were due to play their first match in Jönköping on Saturday afternoon against Epsilon, with Ninjas in Pyjamas and Berzerk completing the group.

However, Leppänen took to Twitter this evening to inform that ENCE will not be able to attend the Swedish event because of "a family tragedy".


natu & co to skip DH Summer 

ENCE are now the second team to skip DH Summer, which will feature a prize purse of $30,000, following TEAMGLOBAL's withdrawal.

"We regret to inform no DH for us, a family tragedy within hours of departure to a team member," Leppänen wrote.

"No further comments for privacy reasons."

DreamHack has not yet commented on the situation, but it seems likely that a fourth team will come from the BYOC qualifier to replace ENCE.

Ye, didn't quite catch that, but it's probably that, the only thing on my mind other than that is a car accident...

It can be anything, accident, heart attack, death and so on. Hope nothing serious.

By using the term tragedy it has to be something serious, unfortunately.

Yeah. But in the other hand it's summer break for some teams/players. And DH:S prize pool isn't that great.

Since BYOC will be going on the same time Group A matches will be played i think the only solution would be to move AliGon or another team to Group A

The BYOC tournament is at the same time as Group A, so I think it most likely will be a forfeit for Epsilon
