suNny: "We're feeling some pressure because of social media that we need to get rid of"

Miikka "suNny" Kemppi took some time to talk to HLTV.org after ENCE secured a spot in the Group A decider match where they will try to take revenge on G2 for a spot in the semi-finals.

ENCE had a rocky start at ESL One New York, where they let two leads slide against G2 on Dust2, which they lost in overtime, and Nuke, a map that went all thirty rounds. The Finns then took on one of the tournament's heavy underdogs, eUnited, and won 2-0 to secure a spot in the Group A decider match where they will once again face G2 in a bid to secure a playoff berth.

suNny says ENCE's overeagerness has caused them to lose crucial rounds

In an interview after a bittersweet day suNny talked about the team's performance at BLAST Pro Series Moscow where a win, two ties, and two losses were not enough to make it to the best-of-three final, adjusting to playing competitively again since signing with ENCE, some communication issues within the team, getting mentally blocked during tight situations, and the rematch against G2 which will take place in the Group A decider.

In an earlier interview you said it may take you a few events to get back into the groove of things and catch up with the current meta. You had a bit of a rough event in Moscow, how are you feeling after a few series here?

In regards to Moscow, the stats lie sometimes. Our opponents saved a lot of rounds on 3vs5, 4vs5s, so when you don't even have a chance to get kills you don't always have good stats. We had four guys with negative ratings yet we won one match pretty easily and played two close matches, so stats lie sometimes and I think in that case we played somewhat better than what the ratings show.

As far as this event, especially in the G2 match, I feel like there was a big mental block. They made great comebacks, I don't want to take anything away from them, but it felt like we lost the match instead of them winning it because we had 5vs3 situations in which we didn't communicate properly and people walked behind us and stuff like that. We kind of set too "high expectations" even though we didn't have them, but for some reason we're feeling some pressure. I think it's because of social media and stuff like that, which we just need to get rid of. After the match we asked ourselves how we can make those kinds of mistakes even though we've all been through so much already. We basically just had a team talk and discussed that we need to play the way we do in practice.

What exactly do you mean when you say you're having a mental block?

In this case, I mean that we're trying to win too much. We need to just go round by round without thinking about the score. When we hit the 14-9 mark we lost two rounds by going in one by one and that's a thing that many new teams do. They have this thing where they want to win it too much and start to overthink. This victory over eUnited I think helped us a bit in this regard.

When you signed with ENCE, one of the reasons that was given for you substituting Aleksib was that you would fit well into his positions. Is that something that's working out, are you fitting into those positions, or do you think some things need to be reworked?

I don't want to go too into detail about it, but right now I'm just playing where he played on every map. In terms of my own gameplay, it's obviously not the same as when I was playing in mousesports. Now I rely more on what the rest of the team does, and I do have some freedom to do stuff, but I'm mostly just adapting to them. When we have more time we'll switch things around a bit, but not too much.

Another one of the things that was talked about, and which may be evolving with time, is the in-game leading. You have the trio of allu, you, and Twista, and in the interview I referenced earlier you also said that in-game leaders don't always have such a heavy role as many people believe. So how is this all working out?

It's a new experience for allu, but he's doing a lot of good stuff. I don't think there have been misscalls, and I think everybody has voice on the team even though allu is the main caller. Everybody has some ideas during the mid-rounds and we just listen to them. It's a bit like that on every team. If I compare it to mousesports, for example, if someone had an idea then the team would adjust to it. There aren't teams in which only one guy is talking.

You said there were some moments against G2 in which there was a lack of communication. Is there ever too much noise?

No, we don't have too much noise or panic in our communication or anything like that, it's the opposite right now. In practice we make jokes during rounds and we cheer on each other and stuff like that, but now during some intense rounds when we're low on time we get too silent and kind of freeze instead of doing anything, and that's also because of the mental thing which I mentioned earlier.

You said there were "no expectations," and you're trying to get rid of the pressure, but were there any talks about what you're aiming at here? Anything you want to show on the server, or the results you get, the way you play?

Yeah, to be completely honest we did discuss it a bit, but we didn't set any expectations, we just want to go and play each game and we know that we can take teams down, even the top 3 teams, but we just need to go game by game and learn after every map. As you saw we played several maps already in two best-of-threes and we're just trying to get experience and "practice," so to speak, on each map.

You played BLAST Pro Series before this, so didn't have much time to be at home and work on stuff, but what have been the routines or what is it you've done with your limited time?

We had one week of practice before coming here, after Moscow, and we mainly looked at why we lost there and we focused on that and on playing our own game and on not getting shut down the way we did against forZe at BLAST, but nothing special. We played on seven maps in one week so we just kind of had to get things working to build a gameplan.

Going up against G2, how do you think the rematch will go?

We're confident, we weren't that sad about the loss because it was in our hands and we didn't lose because they were a better team, it's kind of the same for both teams playing with new lineups and there were a lot of tight rounds.

2019-09-27 07:12
As a professional you should automatically adapt to such publicity no matter what kind of content there will be. You should accept it even if it is negative aka just ignoring such, or trying to turn them into positive. Behaving gently with your haters. Although mostly these tryouts will just turn back into negative. Hence sometimes better remain silent and just ignore them. This is like almost same thing as, if you can't play with 60 hz monitor as a professional (adapting to the equipment you have available.)
2019-09-27 10:19
Professional players are just that, players. Not people who have experience in dealing with huge communities not to mention a huge amount of hate coming straight at them. In today's age it isn't as simple as "turn off twitter lol". Their every single action is documented to the world on social media. Every tournament they get interviewed. For them it's impossible to escape the community, since the community is the ones who in the end are paying for them to live like they do. For a player who has never gotten so much hate it obviously affects them.

2019-09-27 05:30
Now you blame the social media for getting under your skin? Maybe it's time to admit that what everyone sees that roster change and the way it was done was unprofessional, child-like, and bad for ence and maybe for the whole finnish scene. Yes Sunny is good player i'm not saying that he is bad. But as you should all know that getting your friend working with you is not always the most balanced option available. At first it may seem like a perfect way to become numero UNO. I saw that aleksiB was kinda the empatic glue that hold the team together inside the tight games when ence was still the underdog top20 team. Please grow up. Natu get your children`s act together so you can move forward as the best team in Finland (for now) and allu, someday you will be pushed out of a team same way you like to push your girlfriend and drink the redbulls that are not only for commercials. GaLLup~ nousiko kusihattuun vai ei, nöyryys takas ni päästään joskus torille.

The organization really screwed up the roster change . I lost confidence in their work, and can’t respect that at all. Someone commented similar on #26. Unprofessional, childlike. No apologies on the very unprofessional interview that we all have read. Who’s pulling the strings and making all these wonderful decisions? I just don’t feel good anymore while watching you play, ENCE.

2019-09-27 10:38
Precisely my feel as well. Who makes such a low IQ decisions for the organisation? That they simply think placing SunNy into the same role/position as Aleksib like SunNy would be ANYTHING like Aleksib as a player, is another example of out of touch of reality the organisation is. This is the case that sadly 75% of the kids and trolls and masterbaiters of even HLTV knows better than the organisation itself. -Aerial +SunNy had been a great move. Not anything against SunNy and doubt 90% of social media is either, they are hating at how all this has been handled and the low IQ decisions the organisation is making to the point it gets really frustrating to watch as a former ENCE fan.

It's not very smart of an org to kick one of the most beloved players of your roster. Looking for fast results usually doesn't pay off. Like switching your players for one that is better on paper based of of pure stats only. Coldzera will not do anything miracoulously in FAZE, and SunNy will not do anything miracoulously in ENCE. Giving time and practice to a team is best recipe for success, we can see this time and time again. And the solution when you lose a final isn't just to switch out your players. In conclusion, nobody wanted a roster change, and ENCE brought this upon themselfes.

People are still mad about the change so they cant think straight. We are following journey of developement of ence as team and individuals to fit those slots they have made for themselves.

It takes time to make team work after changing igl, playstyle, player positions etc. Pls stop crying and have some constructive criticism (this is hlts so everyone gonna just give me shit replys coz memes are fun.. -.-)

You are correct, everybody loves the teams for the players. We saw ENCE's underdog story in Katowice and probably it was easy for the players to perform after that tournament. They got huge self-confidence and the whole team welded together. And what is the situation now? The most loved player is gone and the newcomer is known as "the drug man". Their communication is weak and executions are poor. I am very skeptical that their game will improve in the near future. It is also very difficult to create any engaging story anymore since the conditions are so depressing and people throw anger at them whatever their result is.

I think that the saddest thing here is that I don’t care anymore if they win or lose. No anger, certainly not hype. Just ”whatever”.

Pretty much same here. The excitement factor is near zero right now.
2019-09-27 11:58
same here, just don´t care. What I do care is in what team Aleksib is going to be and when does it happen :)
2019-09-27 12:12
Then you probably werent ence fan to begin. U are aleksib fan and you will support him and his team whatever it is but u arent fan of that team and there is nothing wrong with that. You just should stop introducing yourself as fan of team if u only like 1 player of that team.

You can very well like a team as a whole including a player; when one player goes out technically it's not the same team, the same mood/atmosphere. A team is a Unit and yet made out of individuals, you only realize that once a player is kicked (and in bad terms I would say), it's perfectly normal. When Vitality benched NBK despite all the goods memories they had together; the whole team itself felt different and cold. It's pratically the same with ence, but on top of the shady contract resigning before the benching, there's the interview from Aerial; you shouldn't do that because it's unprofessional and isn't kind in the slightest especially when you got to a major final together. I just think Ence has mental issues xd, too much ego; everytime they did a poor performance they had sunny in their back of their mind thinking it could be better without a specific player. If sunny wasn't there/ was playing in a team, maybe ENCE would have been more successful for sure especially when your players are childish enough to "want to play" with another player [Sunny] for MONTHS; like you're competing with your team and yet you don't even try to get better with your team, you focus on what it would be like to play with another player. These csgo players really have issues with their mentality and how they apprehend life. They have no self-awareness . Don't get me wrong it's the case for a lot of players in the csgo scene because these guys didn't make any study/ are dropouts or are frankly smart within csgo but not outside. I think it's fair to say that these players weren't reading a lot of books; literature ironically would have been more useful for these players to deal with their problems then swapping players 24/7.
2019-09-27 15:59
You are wrong. I was ENCE fan and that meant cheering for the whole crew. I was with them on their wins and on their losses. Watched all their matches. ENCE for me was those 5 players and later also Twista when he joined as coach. But when the org benched Aleksib and we fans were fed all this mixed up info about the reasons why and later these super weird interviews with allu/Sunny, Aerial etc. my opinion just changed. It seemed that the ENCE I was a fan of was no more. So naturally I started cheering for the one the team left behind.
2019-09-27 16:57
True. I don't think that it is obligatory to stay a fan of a team that behaved in that manner (that has been stated many times). It still doesn't mean you weren't a fan before. If a person that you really liked, shits on you, are you still required to like that person because you did before? Not to my opinion.
2019-09-27 17:12
I haven't stated anywhere here that I was an ENCE fan to begin with. In fact, I state quite clearly that I am an Aleksib fan. I enjoyed watching their games as the team they were, especially Sergej and xseveN. I can't be a fan of a team that treats their players so unfairly as they did to Aleksib. It is not about SunNy, Aerial, or any individual. It is the decision making and the process itself that made me turn away. If that means I haven't been a fan of the team, let it. I can still continue to be fan of inidividual players., and will certainly support the team Aleksib will play in.
2019-09-27 17:08
Not everyone like teams for the players (fanboys [but im not one of these, just saying]). And I agree people should like teams for their playerS. In ences case most of "ences fans" were actually aleksibs fans. In team there are 5 players and usually 1 or more coaches. Ence changes 1 of the 6 team members and these "fans" say that they arent ences fans anymore. There is nothing wrong about being fan of 1 player but then act like it. Ence had problem (firepower) and they try to fix it. Ences performance was already dropping and Ill rather see them changing one players that I like (yes I also like aleksib) than see them slowly dying like vp. Other teams have also changed very liked players like nip get_right (my favourite player), g2 shox, but I havent seen fans stopping supporting those teams for the reason they are changing liked player on their roster. People should see the reason why these changes are made and not taking them personally. I hope aleksib can go to other very good team and keep competing on top.

Yeah sure, you have really good points. But I wouldn't generalize that ENCE's fanbase can be divided into different groups (real fans vs. aleksib fans vs. some other fans). The fact is that if so many people were and are angry about aleksib's benching, probably the management have failed, at least, to communicate with their fans. The second fact is that Aleksib was mostly the soul of the team. Even as a Finn, it felt embarassing to watch their Blast Moscow interview. Six guys sitting there and saying nothing? I understand very well that they needed more firepower and their internal chemistry wasn't completely stable anymore. Maybe I was looking something that never existed. I mean that I really liked how they won so many games with the same lineup and momentarily they looked very dynamic, interesting and dangerous team (e.g. when beating Astralis in Nuke).

As I said earlier there's no such thing as ENCE fans/ Alexsib fans; Alexsib was part of ENCE, just like ENCE was part of Alexsib. People in general just didn't like how they handled the whole thing, especially when a lot of players in that roaster are shaky (hello allu, aerial, xseven).
2019-09-27 16:02
Yeah ofc losing "fan favourites" hurts nostot children like u, they take it personally.
2019-09-27 12:10
Well I like all 5 players of my favourite team unlike these bandwagons who liked only aleksib (probably only coz of his looks). Ence was looking after sunny for long time and if they knew from begginning how popular ence and aleksib would become they probably wouldnt have tried to get sunny. Ences biggest problem was firepower and sunny will be an upgrade on that aspect. Im positive about ences future but well se how it turns up.

The pressure is pretty real. Most ENCE fans are definitely not amused about the kick of Aleksib and, so far, ENCE don't look stronger with suNny...

If I were SunNy, I would have taken the offer of course. I can't blame him for that. I have no clue what has happened behind the scenes (for MONTHS) but signing the contract was a great opportunity for SunNy.

2019-09-27 17:20
I agree. I think that ENCE will not get to top5 anymore. I just don't think that SunNy should get all the heat. The organization is to blame for the hate.

yea of course the org are also to blame, but sunny over confidence is making ppl hating him, its because he is trying to hop on to an already succesful team. ppl call it ez success but its not happening. why didnt he join ence when they were at the bottom ? thts why ppl really hate him he should have declined it, he should accept ence offer when they are performing bad, but ence werent bad at all.
