ENCORE stick together, seek support

ASUS ROG Summer runner ups ENCORE have now officially decided to stick together as a team and are looking for organizational support.

Finland's previous long term top team ENCE disbanded, after nine months in the organization, at the end of June when Aleksi "allu" Jalli left the squad to team up with mousesports.

Joona "natu" Leppänen quickly created ENCORE to attend ASUS ROG Summer in Helsinki and to take part in ESEA Main, but the team wasn't build as a long-term project at the time.

KHRN from Curse.EU

KHRN & natu are once again playing together in a team 

ENCORE finished second at ASUS ROG Summer after a semi-final win against Nostalgie, falling short against Danish myRevenge in the grand final to settle for $3,000 for prizes.

The team's captain natu gave HLTV.org an official statement regarding their decision to give it a go as a team:

"It's come time to confirm what people have probably figured by now - we've decided to stick together with the lineup that was initially built just to attend the ASUS RoG event few weeks back. We had a lot of fun playing together and things seemed to go into the right direction with very minimal preparation which initiated the idea of sticking to it and continue to compete on the international circuit," natu told HLTV.org.

"We are currently looking into opportunites to represent an organisation but taking our time to figure out what the right fit for us would be. As everyone else, we'll be looking to compete in any online and lan tournaments the future brings us."

ENCORE will therefore continue with the following roster:

Finland Taneli "disturbed" Veikkola
Finland Jesse "KHRN" Grandell
Finland Joona "natu" Leppänen
Finland Timo "REFLEX" Rintala
Finland Mikko "xartE" Välimaa

ENCORE are currently seeking organizational support while competing in ESEA Main, where they hold a 7-2 record. You can reach them via Leppänen's Facebook page

They knocked out mouz from the ESL qualifier.
2014-08-25 12:05
generally teams whose players have taken part in a number of big tournaments, and have taken nip to overtime in the past week, get news posts. i would ask if that's okay with you, but i really couldn't care less.
2014-08-25 12:16
Aight, a miss from me since it was a stab at the i52 article mainly.
2014-08-25 12:25
What do you think of ruuit's performance in csgo? He is getting better and better. With 600-700hours of csgo, he did well against nip and in i52
2014-08-25 12:41
played one matchmaking game with him, haven't seen him play at all otherwise. can't comment.
2014-08-25 12:47
He played as a stand in for Encore in caseking against NiP and he already showed some really impressive action, not amazing, but very good.
2014-08-25 13:28
and played kinda solid at i52 last weekend with sunny and co.
2014-08-25 19:19
Must say Im a big fan of ruuit, imo the most complete finnish player ever to grace 1.6. I would not be surprised at all if he was to become a star in CS;GO.
2014-08-25 20:00
He is really good still, would become top player again with some nolifing.
2014-08-25 13:46

3DMAX announces that they are searching for new CSGO team, ENCORE announces that they are going to stick and play for a while. Looks strange right ?

Don't support them, they got zero talent and just want some free skins and money. They'll stick together max a week maybe three. Non-talented team.
2014-08-25 20:57
One encore member already said in Allu's stream that 3Dmax is signing them...
2014-08-25 20:57
