ENCE win Operation: Kinguin #2

ENCE have won the $20,000 Operation: Kinguin #2 online tournament, defeating Escape 2-0 (16-8 on Inferno and 16-9 on Cache) and pocketing $10,000 as a result.

Former NiP AWPer and Finn Aleksi "allu" Jalli entered 2016 after having rejected offers to play for brand name teams and instead chose to focus on an all-Finnish lineup known as ENCE with many former teammates from years past in tow.

The team struggled to put up consistent, top 20 style results since then, and offline appearances have been especially lackluster, with a 13-16th place finish at Copenhagen Games 2016, 5-6th place at the Pantamera CS:GO Challenge, and second place at Assembly Winter 2016 (the final event had the Finns considered as the likely favourites).


"EZ for ENCE," as some would say

However, the Finnish team have now secured their first tournament win, clinching the online Operation: Kinguin #2. The $20,000 event saw 32 teams competing via group stages, with eight teams advancing to its single elimination playoffs last week.

allu's team grinded through what may admittedly be called the hardest path to the grand final, as they had to defeat E-frag.net (2-1) in the quarter-finals and SK (2-1) in the semifinals, both of these being teams who regularly appear in our Top 20 Ranking.

The grand final meanwhile saw ENCE square off against André "BARBARR" Möller's Escape, known to many under previous names such as Orgless, PixelFire, and CSGO.one.

The match itself was generally a one-way affair in favour of the Finns as the team won Inferno 16-8 and Cache 16-9, thereby claiming the first place prize of $10,000.

So the lack of moderation is so severe the single kid reposting the same irrelevant "ez for ence" line in every single news post and match page gained enough exposure to actualle make it a meme. Let this meme be a constant reminder of the sorry permanent state of the HLTV forum. Ez for ENCE.

hey for your information im not fat im just pleasantly plump i hate it when people assume on hltv that just because i don an american flag im fat at this rate i should just take off my flag my countrys going to hell anyways with socialists like bernie sanders and women like hillary clinton running for president bad why cant people see that trump is the best thing to happen to america since the great depression he manages a lot of hotels really well and the proof is hes rich and if hes rich and manages hotels that means he can manage america and make america rich again in conclusion it is incorrect to assume that americans are fat and retarded when in fact they are very healthy as they win every single olympics and have never lost or done badly in a war and many of them are intelligent such as donald trump supporters and george washington supporters

Probably because he saw the team that he didn't win a single event with when he was playing with them (NiP) win the entire event with someone who'd played at his second LAN with them.
