ENCE are through to the grand final at StarSeries i-League Season 6 after beating OpTic 2-0 in the semis (16-10 on Mirage and 16-7 on Cache).

The best-of-three semi-final match between OpTic and ENCE started on Mirage where the CT-sided Finns secured the pistol victory. OpTic hit back in the following round as both Jakob "JUGi" Hansen and Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke got two Deagle kills.

The Danes were in control in the first 13 rounds as they led 9-4. ENCE gathered some momentum by picking up the last two rounds of the half and tied the game at 9-9 after winning the first three rounds in the second half.

ENCE are the first grand finalists

Aleksi "allu" Jalli & company managed to win a 3vs5 in the first weapon round which gave them the lead (10-9). ENCE only lost one round on the T-side and won the map 16-10, going 1-0 ahead in the series.

Cache was the second map and the CT-sided Finnish team got the first round thanks to Sami "xseveN" Laasanen's triple kill. Despite losing the second round to Deagles, ENCE went on an incredible run, taking eight rounds in a row and leading 9-1.

OpTic are out of contention in Kiev

After losing the first half 12-3, OpTic secured the second pistol with a comfortable retake. ENCE bought fully in the 18th round which they won as Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen killed k0nfig in a 1vs1 to trade his teammate (13-5).

ENCE closed out the map in the 23rd round, winning it 16-7 and taking the series 2-0. The Finns have advanced to the grand final at StarSeries i-League Season 6 after this victory.

He literally hasn't said shit for almost 2 years. This community is the most retarded shit ever. Everyone wants drama, but when someone finally says something 'cocky' everyone starts hating that person.

He is doing things in wrong order.. win first, then be cocky. Or at least win when being cocky. So far, konfig has been cocky loser, no one likes that kind of person.

Well, Aleksib told on day 2, they are gonna win this tournament. And yesterday, he told k0nfig isn't good enough for ENCE. Ain't that being cocky? No one is hating him.

Didn't hear him say that they will win the tournament. But i heard that he said k0nfig wasn't good enough to beat them. If Optic would've beated them, there would probably be laugh threads all over hltv about ENCE and him saying that.
2018-10-13 17:35
"He literally hasn't said shit for almost 2 years" that is literally wrong: youtube.com/watch?v=Au4w3_qBJpA twitter.com/ESLCS/status/869672216643772.. twitter.com/k0nfigCS/status/997956747183.. (guardian bottom fragging) twitter.com/k0nfigCS/status/874225165755.. you might wanna follow the scene a bit more so your opening sentence isn't complete nonsense. The guy is known as an arrogant player who doesn't win shit

1st link. Almost over 2 years ago and everyone know it was a joke, both k0nfig and kenny is good friends. 2nd link, is so obviously set up from ESL don't know how u can fall for that. 3rd link, is literally a joke and yes i know guardian was bottom fragging literally everyone made fun of that even guardian himself made fun of it by celebrating when he got his first kill on inferno. 4th link, sry what? rofl. Also i know he is known for being arrogant and not winning anything. But i am still talking about the community, not him in general.
2018-10-13 18:42
tbf the only reason Aleksib said k0nfig isn't good enough for ENCE is because k0nfig said he doesn't consider BIG nor ENCE as good teams I like trash talk though and have always appreciated k0nfig for being who he is good kinda trash talking = k0nfig annoying trash talking that makes you look dumb = smooya

I like the trash talk as well. I just think it is so funny that everyone wants trash talk, but as soon as someone actually trash talks, everyone gets mad at that person and the community goes mental. I completely agree with the smooya and k0nfig part even tho i find it quite funny how 'confident/cocky' smooya is, even tho it makes him look kinda stupid as well.

There's a huge difference saying "we're going to win the tournament" and "ENCE or BIG are bad and therefore wont win the tournament". 1st statement = confidence. 2nd = childish and douchy arrogance. There's a fine line between confidence and arrogance and everyone hates arrogant kids. The so called "trash talk" can include both of these, but only the players doing it fair and respectfully, won't be hated and the ones being salty kids, will get hated every time.

wtf is happening with Norway scene? U had strong scene in 1.6, now only rain and croman that i know. I remember once Serbia play against Norway, you had REAL and some dude with nick stingeR, man was a beast, one of the best pov’s i ever saw.
2018-10-13 20:33
We have rain, cromen, jkaem and RUBINO + Nordavind. Not much going on here xD
2018-10-13 20:36
Norway never had a strong scene, but they have always had super talented players. Catch had a massively talented lineup with player like juven9le, oops, REAL (he was the one the community expected to rule the CS scene) and Naikon. They had EoLithic, Naikon in there too, with elemeNt and knoxville. They playd SK 13 times, by far the most dominant team back then, and they won 12 of those matches. Norway had kalle who was an insane talent and one of the best pistol players in CS. But their scene isn't big, after EoL and Catch they have had no top-level team, but they do have players good enough to join top level teams.

I don’t see tournaments with nations these days but in 1.6 Norway was always good in those. The match i was watchig was on cpl_mill, base for tuscan later. They also had that guy prb or something. They played so good together, I think they won the tournament. I love when scandinavian teams play vs another, i bet when astralis finally lose nuke it will be from ence or fragsters :)
2018-10-13 22:00
cpl_mill used to be my favorite map, tuscan too of course cause it was just an updated mill. Never liked mirage tho, (former cpl_strike) but I loved cpl_fire as well. It just never got updated and was kinda left to oblivion. And yes, prb is the nick. He played for team Norway for years.

Northern lights flash in the sky. A blizzard blows, pelting on its way those too weak to withstand the fury of winter at its fullest. From the permafrost strikes a massive hand; the mythical giant once deemed dead off the coast of Italy now rises to life, regenerated, from Lappish soil. The time is due. Around the world, the word spreads. In Sweden, the best of the best cower in fear and lock themselves in the nearest IKEA retail store. The Brazilians run into the safety of the jungle, the Danes play dead in Legoland and the Slavs sprint crying to babushka’s warm embrace. Enceladus’s augurs are unleashed upon the scene. Aleksi “allu” Jalli hails from his journey spent in international teams. A man may leave Finland, but Finland never leaves a man. Once again, he picks up the green rifle, this time not for money or fame, but to smite all opposition in the name of Enceladus. Aleksi “aleksib” Virolainen leaves the fabled squad of HAVU to lead what we can finally describe as a Finnish superteam. Under his leadership shall the northern guns spit death and destruction upon foes who wail in their weakness. Jani “aerial” Jussila joins after the biggest transfer of the Finnish e-sport scene from his former team SuperJymy. No longer will he be the only stand-out player of his team, but instead, a vital ingredient of a chaotic cocktail made up of Finland’s finest. Jere “sergej” Salo thwarts all rumors of desperate Internet trolls trying to tell they know his parents who told him to stop playing. Oh, the humanity! Backed up by the forces at home, bursting from motivation like a wolf thirsting for blood, he returns to ravage everything in his path. Where skill rises to speak, experience sits silent and disciplined. Sami “xseveN” Laasanen fills the ranks from iGame, for what would the team be if they wouldn’t buy the best player from every other Finnish team? Vigilantly standing, supporting his teammates be the cause what it pleases to be, he will be the shield and sword his comrades need to achieve the ultimate. The warning has been given. The sky screams, the ground shakes and the oceans boil. ENCE is coming. #EZ4ENCE
