Aleksib leaves ENCE

ENCE have announced that Aleksi "⁠Aleksib⁠" Virolainen was transferred to another organisation on December 1.

The move ends Aleksib's long association with ENCE after returning to the organisation in April of 2018 after a first stint there in late 2016.

The 22-year-old tactician led ENCE to glory at StarSeries i-League Season 6, DreamHack Open Winter 2018 and BLAST Pro Series, and to an unprecedented final appearance at the IEM Katowice Major. He made his last appearance for the team at StarLadder Major, where he already knew that he would be replaced by Miikka "⁠suNny⁠" Kemppi after the event.

Aleksib is no longer contracted to ENCE

He is expected to be soon unveiled by Dota 2 organisation OG, who have teased that they will be making an announcement on Wednesday. He is expected to link up with Nathan "⁠NBK-⁠" Schmitt and Valdemar "⁠valde⁠" Bjørn Vangså, two players who have been transferred from Vitality and North, respectively, with neither organisation having announced the destination.

Mateusz "⁠mantuu⁠" Wilczewski, who left ALTERNATE aTTaX earlier on Wednesday, and HellRaisers' Issa "⁠ISSAA⁠" Murad will reportedly complete the roster, with the British AWPer having been picked after OG dropped their pursuit of Elias "⁠Jamppi⁠" Olkkonen and were beaten by Complexity in the race to sign Valentin "⁠poizon⁠" Vasilev.

In a follow-up tweet, ENCE vowed to issue a statement in the coming days addressing "speculation and various comments from the past fall". The Finnish team, who are currently ranked 10th in the world, will end the year at the Champions Cup Finals, which will be held in Malta between December 19-22.

2019-12-05 11:06
what happened? they were lucky once, and then they were back to trash while he was still on the team. they couldnt get any results for months so they changed him but they didnt improve. thats what happened. anyway, sunny is worldclass player while aleksib is not, period.
2019-12-05 13:06
Yeah its just luck get to finals in major fuckin moron. Also they won tournaments after that when aleksib was on team. Now ence cant even get further than groups.
2019-12-05 14:42
your mom gave birth to a moron. they never won anything important, thats a fact, and they became really bad as he was still on the team.

he wasnt kicked, he was benched, now he transfered to other organisation as they bought him out from his contract, which is point of the news, not that he isn't playing for ence anymore, everyone already knew that since long time ago. However why it says he leaves ence is because he still stayed on bench of the team technically until OG bought him out.
2019-12-05 02:47
ENCE 100% regrets of this closure
