naSu to stand in for ENCE at DH Tours

Niko "naSu" Kovanen will be standing in for Tom "stonde" Glad at DreamHack Tours, the Finnish organization revealed on their website.

Just two days before the start of the EU Minor at DreamHack Tours 2016, ENCE revealed that Tom "stonde" Glad will not be able to travel with the team because of health issues. When examined by the doctor, the Finnish player was advised not to travel in order to prevent infection.

The replacement player, Niko "naSu" Kovanen, is a familiar face in the Finnish scene as he had a 1.6 career and played for ENCE back in 2014. naSu, who is Tomi "lurppis" Kovanen's brother, will make his comeback to international LANs as ENCE will be trying to qualify for the Major qualifier.


Will naSu be up to the challenge?

Starred by Aleksi "allu" Jalli, ENCE will use the following lineup at DreamHack Regional Minor Championship Europe at DH Tours 2016:

Finland Aleksi "allu" Jalli
Finland Miikka "suNny" Kemppi
Finland Mikko "xartE" Välimaa
Finland Juho "juho" Lampinen
Finland Niko "naSu" Kovanen

The Finns will play their first match in DreamHack Tours against GODSENT at 16:00 on May 14 and you can catch them live over at DreamHack's twitch channel.

Atleast he hasn't been completely inactive, 2600 hours in CS:GO, 45 hours in the last 2 weeks. He also attended LanTrek with SkitLite (lurppis, H^N, evidence, tomsku, naSu) but since it was a mix team they didn't make it really far. Unfortunately couldn't find any stats from the event.

2016-05-12 17:42
juho is the inconsistent one. past two lans hes been really bad compared to his online performances.

Aslak not strong after 2012. :(
2016-05-12 19:07
he needs a good team to prove themselves(my personal opinion.) the way he started playing again. I wrote it in Twitter and he said he was playing DotA and want to go to the international. but recently I saw on one site that he was playing with the team. The truth is I do not know who they are. wiki.teamliquid.net/counterstrike/Aslak

He was going to play in that team with lurppis, basic, nasu, h^n for one lan event here but he and basic didn't end up going, he isn't active cs go player these days anyway, he has 0 hours in last 2 weeks etc. so obviously he wouldn't even be player to consider here...
