ENCORE add REFLEX, tomsku

ENCORE have completed their roster with the additions of Timo "REFLEX" Rintala and Roope "tomsku" Simpanen, HLTV.org has learned.

The Finnish team had been on the lookout for two new players after witnessing the departures of Tom "⁠stonde⁠" Glad and Taneli "⁠disturbed⁠" Veikkola, two players who decided to take breaks from competitive gaming.

After testing the waters for almost two weeks, ENCORE went for Timo "⁠REFLEX⁠" Rintala, who recently attended Copenhagen Games with Menace, and Roope "⁠tomsku⁠" Simpanen, formerly of PANTHERS.


REFLEX joins ENCORE 

The former 3DMAX team are still looking for a new organisation to represent, but, for the time being, their focus is on getting back to the level they were before the roster changes.

ENCORE, who are taking part in Acer Predator Masters, in which they remain pointless after three matches, now have:

Finland Jesse "⁠KHRN⁠" Grandell
Finland Mikko "⁠xartE⁠" Välimaa
Finland Niko "⁠naSu⁠" Kovanen 
Finland Timo "⁠REFLEX⁠" Rintala
Finland Roope "⁠tomsku⁠" Simpanen
