ENCE defeat Astralis; go 3-1 in Madrid

ENCE tied Astralis' record in the group stage ahead of the last round of play, 3-1, after defeating them on Dust2.

ENCE kicked Dust2 off against Astralis winning the first pistol round on the attacking side with a double by Sami "xseveN" Laasanen and a triple by Jere "sergej" Salo. The lead was short lived, however, as The Danish side took the forcebuy and the two following rounds. Astralis then kept the ball rolling on the CT side, racking up an early lead as ENCE could not break through the defenses. Down 1-7, ENCE were finally able to get back on the board with a double by Aleksi "allu" Jalli and triple by sergej.

An A split then got the Finns another round on the board, as Astralis’ economy started to dwindle. Eventually, ENCE were able to close the gap late in the first half, all the way to 7-8, after taking map control and punishing the CT players.

ENCE were able to close out Dust2 after a comeback attempt by Astralis

A mid push by the CTs in the second round made it a tie game, 8-8. ENCE then started to get a lead, as Jani "Aerial" Jussila got four on Long to make it 11-8. The Finns, able to get opening kills round after round, closed round after round, including a four-kill round to defend the A site and make it 14-8. ENCE then made it to match point, but Astralis didn’t stop fighting, changing the tempo and winning round after round to try and bring the match to a tie after 30 rounds. Finally, however, it was ENCE who were able to make one last push, closing it out 16-13.

Xseven didn't actually do too bad this match, he made a good couple round changing plays
2019-05-11 17:35
They should also remove their igl aleksib and coach twista, and add better fraggers. Their support xseven is first one to go too, just add more good fraggers so they will be a consistent top 1 team in no time. This is a great idea to bump up the team coordination in a long run!
2019-05-11 17:36
Yeah. If they don't go down this road, they will never be as good as FaZe.

2019-05-11 22:28
Faze is #4 best team in the world doing the same strategy, just kick support and go for best aimers. I think ence should kick xseven and aleksib, maybe coach. Aerial too, there are lots of good free agents. Allu + sergej, then just 3 good fraggers no matter what country. Ence hasn't won anything after major anyways
2019-05-11 23:46
stfu idiot :D better change something that is working and lets break the top 2 team
