ENCE defeat Valiance in Katowice

ENCE have beaten Valiance 2-1 to advance to the upper bracket final at the Europe Minor (9-16 on Dust2, 16-11 on Mirage, and 16-9 on Train).

The second upper bracket semi-final at the Europe Minor was between ENCE and Valiance who kicked off the series on Dust2. The T-sided Finns secured the first three rounds but Nestor "LETN1" Tanić stopped the streak with an AUG quad kill.

Nemanja "huNter" Kovač helped Valiance tie up the game at 3-3 with a quad kill of his own and followed it up with another quad, this time in a 2vs5 situation, to give his team the lead (4-3). ENCE responded to Valiance's eight round streak with two round victories but the Serbian team managed to pick up the last two rounds of the half to close it 10-5 ahead.

ENCE will take on North in their next match

Jere "sergej" Salo's triple kill in the second pistol wasn't enough to stop Valiance who extended their lead to 11-5. Later on, the Finns trailed 15-6 and denied three match points but Valiance managed to close out the map 16-9.

Mirage started with ENCE on the CT-side and Jani "Aerial" Jussila picked up a triple to win the pistol. Valiance responded in the first gun round and took two more to get ahead (3-2). The lead changed hands three more times and ENCE finished the first half 8-7 in front.

huNter began Valiance's CT-side campaign by picking up a double kill in the pistol round which tied the game at 8-8. The Serbian side also won the following two rounds to lead 10-8 but lost the 19th round to pistols (10-9). Aerial's ace made it 11-10 in favor of ENCE who went on to win the map 16-11, tying the series at 1-1.

Valiance will face Vitality in the lower bracket

Rokas "EspiranTo" Milasauskas started the decider, Train, with a triple kill to give his CT-sided team the early lead. After Valiance won the first three rounds, sergej grabbed a quad kill with a Tec-9 to put ENCE on the scoreboard (3-1).

The Finnish team also secured six of the following seven rounds to lead 7-4. huNter put a stop to ENCE's dominance with a triple kill in the 12th round but Aerial responded by getting three opening kills in the following round, extending ENCE’s lead to 8-5. The Finnish side ended the first half 9-6 ahead.

sergej got three kills in the second pistol round but Nemanja "nexa" Isaković and EspiranTo clutched a 2vs4 to win it. However, Valiance could only win two more rounds in the second half and ENCE finished it off with a 16-9 scoreline. With the 2-1 series victory, the Finns have advanced to the upper bracket final.

Hello! Sorry to bother you all, but I’m new to the CS:GO competitive scene. I’m just very curious why it seems there’s nothing that could challenge the Finnish esports organization that goes by the name “ENCE Esports”? Everything just seems to be so easy for them

Who cares they’re both from Europe and they both lost.

You're retarded. Go back to your hole, burger brain. The French team wasn't finished, because the French team didn't play this match. You're an idiot, end of.
