ENCE add arvid and Aleksib

The Finnish organization ENCE announced the departure of Mikko "xartE" Välimaa and the addition of two new players: Tony "arvid" Niemelä and Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen.

Mikko "⁠xartE⁠" Välimaa was a member of ENCE since the team was founded, but after a series of disappointing individual and team performances, it was mutually decided that xartE should leave the team - allowing for new talent to come in.

The team has also been using the veteran Joona "⁠natu⁠" Leppänen as a stand-in since their star Aleksi "⁠allu⁠" Jalli left the team, which didn't help with the most recent performances. At ESEA GC they only managed one win - against the Australian team Chiefs.


xartE will be departing ENCE after a series of disappointing results

According to their press release, ENCE decided to go for a "fresh start" and fill the two spots with Tony "⁠arvid⁠" Niemelä, a former SkitLite player, and Aleksi "⁠Aleksib⁠" Virolainen, formerly of Findictus. Both players have limited international experience, but have stood in for ENCE in the past few months.

ENCE now has the following roster:

Finland Niko "⁠naSu⁠" Kovanen
Finland Miikka "⁠suNny⁠" Kemppi
Finland Juho "⁠juho⁠" Lampinen
Finland Tony "⁠arvid⁠" Niemelä
Finland Aleksi "⁠Aleksib⁠" Virolainen

The new roster will debut today at 19:00 , in a GG Masters match versus PENTA.

So what's the deal with ENCE and LGR and why aren't they exchanging players more. Just fucking put your best talent in one team so Finland could at least pretend to have a scene.
