Aerial: "We want to be the number one team in the world; It's why we made the change"

We caught up with Jani "Aerial" Jussila to discuss ENCE's recent adjustment, its mental impact on the team and the squad's long-term ambitions.

ENCE started off their BLAST Pro Series Moscow performance with a lop-sided loss to local squad forZe, followed by a tie in their follow-up match against CIS' finest, Natus Vincere. The team currently stands at a 0-1-1 record, netting Aleksi "allu" Jalli and company a total of one tournament point.

Aerial is happy with the new atmosphere in the team

Before matches commenced we spoke with Aerial to discuss his excitement playing with newly-added Miikka "suNny" Kemppi, the reasons behind the team's past stagnation and how the mental state of the team improvement post-adjustment.

You recently added suNny to the starting roster. What is the ambiance like in the team following his addition?

I think the atmosphere is really great, we've been wanting this for at least a few months. Everyone was very hyped because everyone likes to play. We're doing really great, allu is a great in-game leader, he has been making great calls and everyone is just having fun. It's just what we need.

From an interview that was conducted at the Major, my understanding is that the in-game leading will be split between allu and suNny, who are main and secondary callers, with Twista giving input in-between.

Yes, allu will be our main caller, suNny will be helping as well, and Twista will be giving insight on the enemy, give us hints and will help us with our approach in-game. Of course, there will also be other players calling mid-round, but mainly it's allu and suNny.

Looking at allu's calling, would you say the system is somewhat similar to Aleksib's approach?

We are still pretty much using the same stuff, because the team is new. We are using things we used back in the day because it's been two days of practice since suNny came to the team, but the difference is, at least in practice, that allu is always doing something new, and trying to make something new up. With Aleksib we just tried to play default and did the same executes all over again, so that's how it's different with allu - always trying something new.

allu described a period of stagnation, where the team felt stuck and didn't progress as such. Do you think this was partly because of the lack of evolution in the in-game approach? Do you feel this innovative approach from allu will change the future for ENCE?

Yes, of course. We've been stuck and that's one reason, the other reason is that people wanted changes in the team. We didn't have that much motivation to practice and we wanted to get more firepower on the team. When we got suNny it helped us mentally, and of course we're going to do even better now, we believe.

Tension and frustration followed after your loss to Na'Vi at StarSeries Season 7, which is unusual considering the cold-blooded, calculated association people have with ENCE. Was it unusual for you to experience this in the team?

It was not that strange, it has happened from time to time. When we play bad, there's usually some tension between players and not much hype going on. When we play well, the atmosphere has been really great, and stuff works out. It's nothing new, basically, it has been around since the forming of the team.

Let's talk about suNny and his in-game role - will he effectively just be slotting into Aleksib's role, or will there be in-game restructuring with his arrival?

For now, he will just be playing Aleksib's roles - if it doesn't work then we'll change something, but obviously we have a really tight schedule now, so we just have to put suNny in Aleksib's role and see how it goes from there.

It became immediately apparent that suNny's addition was an upgrade

Firepower was a big talking point when bringing suNny in. With the limited amount of time that you've spent practicing, has it become apparent that he will be the explosive player ENCE needs?

Yeah, definitely. He has more firepower than Aleksi, and we also thought that he is going to be even better at the roles Aleksib fulfilled because we thought that Aleksib had great roles almost on every map. Bringing suNny into those roles is going to be more impactful, so that's what led us to the decision to put him into the team.

Why exactly is it that the team felt he would be better at these specific roles?

He has a lot more experience and firepower, and he is just a better player individually and overall. Those are the main reasons.

With these changes, has the team set new expectations going into the remainder of 2019/2020?

We want to reach top one eventually, but I don't know how long it's going to take, because with a really tight schedule we don't have much time to practice or anything. When we get some practice, then we will want to improve over time and get that top one spot. That's the main reason we actually brought in suNny - ok, people were saying that we are in the top five, that's good, but we want to be the number one team in the world. It's why we made the change.

2019-09-15 12:54
allu is always doing something new, and trying to make something new up. With Aleksib we just tried to play default and did the same executes all over again, so that's how it's different with allu

All I read is salty shit. If they had a problem with the calling maby say so, and do something about it instead of backstabbing kick and cry and excuses lol

2019-09-14 12:07
what are you talking about. They were scrimming with Sunny while AleksiB was still in the team. They were 5 man on faceit for weeks.
2019-09-14 12:10
I understand what you mean but 5 man on faceit is way different than 5 man in tournaments. Don't get me wrong, i think that they kicking aleksib was their worst idea ever but you can't really say if this lineup works until they have played for 1-2months in tournaments
2019-09-14 12:14
But after playing 5 man faceits for a month you should have some sort of basic default ready for the maps you want to play. Don't need anything special but going to the same site 90% of the rounds isn't good.
2019-09-14 13:46
Basic faceit game doesn’t count. They all are good friends and probably was playing just for fun together. Not praccing

Unrealistic as they have kicked their igl. I’m not sure how much experience allu has with igling but I doubt he will be better than aleksib. As with almost all igls, his stats will take a hit. Not good for what seems to be the second best player on the team.
2019-09-14 12:08
i think that aleksi has more experience about in-game leading but i think that if they have more fire power and a solid igl so i think it will be good. We just need to wait like 2-3 months to see did it work
2019-09-14 13:14
In what way is Allu a solid IGL? I understand you want Ence with Sunny to succeed but surely you can see Allu isn't an IGL. It's like a worse Niko IGL.
2019-09-14 13:47
Allu has always been a 2nd caller. youtu.be/na5fuiXSH3s?t=239 EDIT: ugh timestamps no work on hltv, go to 3:58
2019-09-14 14:23
What you linked is literally a full eco round with only f0rest saving a gun. Hes asking them if they can rush mid not telling them to rush mid. Idk what you are trying to prove with this link.
2019-09-15 14:33
1. it was an example 2. if you think every team is ran like a general & his pawns (ex6tenz style) you're delusional 3. a 2nd caller asking for approval is not strange at all
2019-09-15 17:02
1. it was a bad example that showed nothing 2. I dont think every team is run in a strict manor however, saying "can we rush mid" in a full eco round doesn't mean you are a secondary caller. Its quite clear everyone during the NIP lineup was vocal and threw ideas around. 3. Maybe or maybe not you don't know unless you are a second caller or in a team with 2 callers.
2019-09-15 17:10
Hope they disband in few months just for trashing Aleksi after backstabbed him
2019-09-15 12:59
Allu is not a solid igl. And sunny was probably the worst igl in CS history for the time he was leading ence back then, its pretty hard to imagine him being good 2nd caller.

Seems worse... They will probably regret changing Aleksib
2019-09-14 12:04
I feel like that too. They'll experience the IGL hangover effect, and after a while they'll fail to adapt to the meta in my opinion. suNny is good, I've wanted him in ENCE for a while, but the player to go should've been Aerial/xseveN.
2019-09-14 12:09
like everybody else but Ence management thought that.
2019-09-14 13:34
This is worse than when FaZe dropped karrigan, because there they were already going downhill. ENCE haven't been going downhill per se, they simply got to where they belonged to, which was still way above anyone's (realistic) expectations. With suNny AND aleksib they could've been a genuine contender rather than a temporarily overperforming team, but they went on and ruined it. What I find strange is that some people seem to blame suNny according to himself. That's just stupid, it's not his fault Aleksi was kicked, the fault lies with ENCE. But hey, let's observe them closely for the next 3 months. If they don't achieve anything in that time this team will have already completely failed in my opinion.
2019-09-14 13:44
Agree everything you said. If they just trained to become better players invidual they could challenge everybody. Aerial himself said some loss after Asstralis that 1v1 situtations they had no chance. Dead before even noticing the enemy. Clearly thats not because Strats or AleksiB default plays.
2019-09-14 16:23
+1 I really hope that Aleksi finds a good new home, he doesn't deserve this neither as a player nor as a human.
2019-09-14 17:22
Definitely Aerial, not xseven.
2019-09-15 13:33
me too. Part where aerial talks about Aleksi wanting to play more default strats and allu thinking about new sets, makes me think that AleksiB strats with a more firepower team would be fuckin great. Ence were the best form playing default and shooting head, BUT like on/off players like Aerial and Allu it wont work. So ofc Aerial says something like this because he gets off the spot where people are calling him out to do better and be better. Easy to blame AleksiB and not to look in the mirror where the real problems lies. Ence out of top10 in a 6-8 months. Aerial what o cuck.

Lmao don't try to fanboy your aerial, Sunny is not an IGL nor is Allu (he's a secondary caller at best), Alexsib showed he was an IGL, he was two years ago and he's still is, good IGL pretty much never drop the IGL spot, it's logical. Allu is switching from time to time to awper, if he feels like it he calls mid rounds and now main IGL... lmao if you can't see the problem here you're braindead.
2019-09-14 14:10
He didn't trashtalk Aleksi and he was speaking from team side not from his own.
2019-09-14 14:26
Like team said, no problem, just wanted to try somerhing new :) obviously TEAM was not happy with strats/calls/play style aleksib had, and allu tought that he has better ideas.. sunny replacing aleksib as the places he hold/spots he play = better on that.. didn’t mean that sunny nor allu would be better igl.. you must have a real problem to understand what you read and just make up braindead conclusions.. :) not trying to fanboy anyone, just realism my monkey friendo :)

not false, I don't think ence should let this guy give interviews.
2019-09-14 12:32
This! I actually liked him and deffended him earlier when ppl Said he should get kicked. I’ll stop doin that after i read this.
2019-09-14 12:38
Well yeah, he really doesn't think what he says I guess, doubt he realized how bad it even sounds, seems guy like that honestly :D...
2019-09-14 12:40
Indeed ^^ My guess is that all of this comes from allu, while the other players are too afraid to stand up against him. And this interview kinda proves it. Feels like he’s trying to answer with some other persons words (allu). Like 0% genuine words, Classic case of being a pu**y

He’s saying that Aleksi had great spots and that they’ll put Sunny at the same spots which Will make him more impactful at those spots. Aleksi on those spots = top frags from time to time Sunny on those spots = bottom frag EVERY game. GG, Dumbest roster change EVER. Complaining about doing the same strats over and over, maybe aleksi did that because it WORKED. He brought a team of useless players (except maybe Sergej) to being a TOP team, what more do u want?

2019-09-14 12:34
2 days of practise with a new player and a new igl. I still do agree that Aleksib probably was not the problem and the roster move seemed stupid from the outside. Its only been 2 matches after 2 days of practise with Sunny, so its too early tell.
2019-09-14 12:43
That's a lie, they played with sunny for a month before berlin
2019-09-14 12:43
Why would they practise for a month before a major with a completely different player. Aerial also said in the article that they played 2 days with sunny.
2019-09-14 12:48
That's a lie, you can check faceit match history + both allu and sunny had pics of them bootcamping in vallila office before berlin. Don't argue if you don't know shit
2019-09-14 12:49
Playing faceit =/= practising. But if they were bootcamping, I can believe it. Are the pictures on their IG profiles or where?

2019-09-14 13:11
dafuq is wrong with the management or whoever makes these decisions if they think -Aleksib +SunNy is going to take them to nr.1 The only upgrade with SunNy would be -Aerial but that's only around 10% or so or taking them from a stable 4th position to 3rd or possibly 2nd (not enough to take them to 1st) upgrade but still, if they had told me they'd replace aleksib that to me had seemed like a -20% downgrade
2019-09-14 12:43
The problem seemed to be that AleksiB strats were to hard on on/off players like Allu and Aerial to play by. AleksiB uses lot of default as aerial says, and the if players misses their 1on1 situations ofc they gonna lose. Ence were great while everybody were delivering. Problems wasnt aleksiB or his strats, problem were these on/off players who werent consistent.
2019-09-14 13:15
Aerial has been pretty off since the one tournament he put on exceptionally many hrs of training (the amount no pro players would consistently feel motivated to do). I'm suprised management thinks Aleksib is more of a problem than Aerial (or xseven but I think role wise xseven is more important than -Aerial if SunNy have to replace someone in the team). Aerial has really bad aim recently, he holds angles and still dies most of the time.
2019-09-14 13:29
you are talking about that Blast tournament where Aerial won MVP. Yes, after that he has been kinda shit. Of course one could argue that AleksiB strats didn't work with Ence because they didn't be consistent finalist, but i don't know. like If your players drops from god mode to bot mode in a day, idk who is that IGL who would have save them? Nobody i think.

Part where aerial talks about Aleksi wanting to play more default strats and allu thinking about new sets, makes me think that AleksiB strats with a more firepower team would be fuckin great. Ence were the best form playing default and shooting head, BUT like on/off players like Aerial and Allu it wont work. So ofc Aerial says something like this because he gets off the spot where people are calling him out to do better and be better. Easy to blame AleksiB and not to look in the mirror where the real problems lies. Ence out of top10 in a 6-8 months. Aerial what o cuck.

in Winland we call this "SELKÄÄNPUUKOTTAJANÖSSÖT SAATANA" but as we all can sense that this team will not thrive. You can sense it now and you will see this happening later. They try to adapt ... but they will get so frustrated and that will crash and crush their spirits. After that, all of them will start to look like as hungover as not so suNNy in encelandia. bad call, bad man-child allu. I will make a better team than ence and point fingers to your direction and say, HEY LOOK THIS over 30 yo hitter will do it better than you, after that there is nothing else for you to "enjoy" life on the shittier side of things. BAD CALL!

Quite poor interview. Polarizing and needlessly taking shots, no matter were it supposed to or not. I don't even expect the viewers to justify their stupid remarks / utter aggressivenesss towards players they don't seem to even know. Less hostility people, it will make things more pleasent to all of us, including yourself.

They should’ve just cut xseven or Ariel if they wanted sunny... I mean go look at the major and other tournaments and Aleksib is usually outfragging them. Fucking plebs

And Aleksib even said on his stream that he has always a place on his heart for Jani.

Don’t get me wrong sunny has some game but alexib just had a way with himself that just seems more natural than with sunny in the team. I hope it works but I don’t think it will this year. I see ENCE sliding outside the top15 here soon.

Aerial is a A1 grade prick and a mediocre player as well.

I was proud of Finnish CS until now. Ence is full of snakes, thats all I have to say. Like Stewie replied to Aleksib: turn the other cheek. Aleksi is way better than this team so he deserves better. Get lost Ence.

Dumbest kick since karrigan in faze on paper. It was obvious he did a lot correctly. Allu trying new stuff is just about him wanting to be the center of attention as usual with his throwing.. he hates consistent cs and stability. He seemes like a really nice guy, but the team needs to keep a controlled approach. Stop doing defaults when you have no idea what the opponent will do, or exactly what they can afford, then you start losing rounds all the time to bs. I am sorry, but some "boring" aspects and rutines are needed to control outcomes and keep structure. Aleksib had more than enough firepower!
