ENCE defeat Bravado to win DreamHack Winter

ENCE took their map pick, Train (16-9), and Bravado’s pick, Inferno (16-5), to win the last DreamHack Open tournament of the year in Jönköping.

ENCE kicked off their map pick, Train, with a 3-0 lead after winning the pistol round, against a forcebuy, and an anti-eco. With a full buy in the third round, Bravado were able to keep ENCE at bay, albeit barely as it came down to Johnny "⁠JT⁠" Theodosiou winning a 1vs1 afterplant against Aleksi "⁠allu⁠" Jalli to get his team on the board. ENCE then changed the pace, going fast outer, resetting Bravado and taking a 6-1 lead after the anti-ecos.

Bravado were able to win a Desert Eagle buy, making it 2-7, which they were able to follow up as Rhys "⁠Fadey⁠" Armstrong got a double while defending B alone in a 3vs3. ENCE kept dominating the half, giving up only two more before the half, making it 10-5.

Bravado tried a push on A through Ivy and Main, but clinical doubles by Jani "⁠Aerial⁠" Jussila and Sami "⁠xseveN⁠" Laasanen gave the second pistol round to the Finns. The South African side then won the first gun round, lost the second, and won an eco to reset ENCE. They then won the anti-eco and followed it up with Dimitri "⁠Detrony⁠" Hadjipaschali winning a 1vs1 afterplant on B against xseveN to close the gap, 9-13. ENCE were then able to run away with it, as allu was able to win a 1vs2 on the retake with the AWP to get on match point, and the Finns closed it out the following round, 16-9.

ENCE closed it out on Inferno in dominant fashion

ENCE won their third pistol round of the match on the defending side of Inferno, which they followed up with an aggressive anti-eco. The Finns then got two quick kills and read Bravado’s a play to win the first gun round. It didn’t stop there, as Bravado lacked ideas to break through to get on the board. Up 7-0, xseveN got a triple spraydown thanks to a flash assist by Aleksi "⁠Aleksib⁠" Virolainen on Banana to keep it going. Bravado were finally able to make it onto B site, planting for the first time and winning their first round, making it 1-9.

Once again, ENCE plowed through the attacking side of Bravado, wrecking the South African team’s economy and further increasing a huge lead. At the half, ENCE was leading 14-1. Bravado were then able to win their first pistol round of the match, stopping an A rush from ENCE. Two quick opening frags on B gave the Finns freedom to take the site, getting them on championship point after winning the round, 15-5. They then followed it up with an A play, taking the tournament as allu got four to close it out.

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. #GODALLU #EZ4ENCE
