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 & 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:
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.
