[VOD] Talking all things ENCE on HLTV Confirmed with allu

The Finnish sniper will join HLTV's live show on Twitch at 20:00 to discuss player changes and the future of his team.

Timestamps available on YouTube

Aleksi "⁠allu⁠" Jalli is the first Finnish player to take part in HLTV Confirmed, as he will join the 20th episode of fifth the season. Together with the panel, the 28-year-old will walk through ENCE's roster changes and circumstances that saw them drop out of top 30 for the first time since July of 2018.

Tune in to the show to hear what allu has to say about ENCE's year

Hosting the show will be Zvonimir "Professeur" Burazin and Milan "⁠Striker⁠" Švejda, while the third member of the regular panel, Chad "⁠SPUNJ⁠" Burchill, will miss out this week.

Aside from the talk about ENCE, the show will touch on recent news as well as results at the BLAST Premier Fall Finals. Lastly, the show will pivot to what we can expect from the IEM Global Challenge and discuss what the best team of the year has been.

Your name clearly checks out on how patriotic you are about your little cult country. No!, Germany did not land on the moon, Finland knows. I always hate Germans who brag about their country despite being the worst country in EU, destroyed the world in 20th century with wars (and still lost). No wonder your country is infested with migrants but don’t worry, they will return because Germany living conditions are far worst. Big clan is an embarrassment and your economy is doomed. German women is ugly and men are always working in factories. Enjoy your life by playing csgo before its too late. Msg me when you reach MG2.

Nothing is wrong with ENCE. Csgo teams have their ups and down, but ence is winning again now (they won). Just stop blaming other teams when your country is actually a no scener (yes, mouz is not a german team. ChrisJ is dutch). BUG is fluked because XANTARES is an immigrant and Syrson is pure aimbotting. ENCE can beat SUG CLAN in 2-0 fashion, so ez for xseveN. But hey, at least you have a Vitality flaire. The only thing that is okay about you. Also my favorite year is 1944. Learn your history (Germany is ranked 47 in educational) so I dont expect you to get the reference. Also fyi, Finland is 1st in education, F1 and more.

Nothing is wrong with ENCE? Dude, they have been playing terrible for the last year! Aleksib was the problem...
2020-12-14 15:32
2 replies
I agree with you, Aleksib is the problem with his 0.88 rating despite playing easy roles. We fins use math to judge a player, not hair.
2020-12-16 03:55
1 reply
Well, then use your math to see how they fell apart after they kicked him. You know, the usefulness of a player is not always described by his rating ;) Also, I see his rating being a little bit above 1.00 during the last year in OG. What that tells me is that either they misjudged him on his firepower progress while he was at ENCE, or he had to sacrifice more of it in order to lead them better tactically. Anyway, let's see how this goes. ENCE have been sucking out young talent over and over from the other Finish teams, I hope that they at least use it well in their next roster iteration (if they don't disband, of course).

Yeah and he made it happen in a year, Allu made no such progress. Also, he has Zywoo and Shox, both players were considered the best in the world at one point, Xtqzzz is a great coach and they have up and comers like Nivera and Misuttaa. Also, the fact that Sergej, a former top 20 players, decided that he'd rather go do his army thing instead of playing a game he's obviously good at, depicts that Allu has no idea what he is doing. Remember how good Xseven was under Aleksi? Where is he now? PLaying tier 4 Finnish cs for scraps.

+1 this why most finnish people hate ence. There could be still today top 5-10 team in finland if they didnt kick aleksib. Another thing why ence is so hated by finnish people is that they never showed that they regret kicking aleksib or apologize it.
2020-12-14 14:16
Well xseven had pretty bad stats while playing for ence, but he was an excelent player, but he was playing best during the aug meta, but unless i am wrong, its sunny who is calling not allu

2020-12-14 18:59
You know, I really liked watching ENCE "back in the days" when they had their awesome major run eliminating the likes of Liquid, Na'Vi and so on. For example. Actually, it's really tough to see Allu like this, because while he's still a fin he looks exhausted and downcast. Here's the but: They had it in their own hands. I believe him when he says that there's been a point when change was inevitable and obviously we don't have the insight players and organisation had likewise, but maybe, just maybe it woulda been better to at least try talking things through instead of going for a severe change like this. Sure, OG had a rough start, but they're slowly developing, making positive progress. So what I'm basically saying is: Maybe there's been issues, but was this aftermath really worth it?
2020-12-14 23:48

Yeah, well it made sense from a stats point of view, because every time they got deep into a tournament aleksib had really bad stats, while the rest of the team had pretty good to excelent

Sure, but maybe he just had a slump. And even if not, that's something you can work on. What is done is done, obviously, but it's quite sad to see.

Well yeah, but he was the worst performer of the whole team during the whole period he was the igl but, he deffinetly was fragging pretty good, he had like a 1.0 rating
2020-12-15 12:41
1 reply
Yes, but what did they get in return after kicking him? They dropped out of the Top30. I just wish they woulda shown more patience with him as an IGL and the whole team in general as ENCE was pretty new to that Top-5-contender scenario. Only allu knew that feeling before, but the rest of the team didn't and obviously had to learn. In my opinion, they acted hastily and it's been a grave mistake to think you could establish your spot among the top teams by adding mere firepower and dropping your talented mastermind. Anyway, we can't turn back time.

Finland come here (they're already here): it seems like people there love Aleksib (Biskela) as much or even more than ENCE. When OG's playing finnish streams are full. Who is more popular, ENCE or OG/Aleksib? Is there some kind of salt against ENCE/allu for kicking Aleksi and becoming worse?

Hello, I am Finland. I would say they are about 50/50 in popularity (depends on who plays well because of plastic fans) and many people like both. Many people are still salty but most of them are 12 year old OG/Aleksib fanboys and dumb ence fans that give them too much attention. When ence plays few games well, our fanbase grows 50% and people are actually pretty positive. But when they lose to even Astralis or other teams like that, they get absolutely shitted on even if they played decent. Summary: Brain dead kids are fighting still, but people that can actually think hope best for both.

I think a lot of the hype around ence back then was due to aleksi. The tactical genius meme, his hair meme and the fact that he is pretty damn good at talking in interviews and definitely not the stereotypical esports player. When he was kicked of course people got salty but also it meant that ence lost one key factor why they had fans in the first place (you can be fan of a team blindly or because of the players). Add to that the bad PR, shitty results and excuses which made people dislike ence even more. But I think that most people have gotten over it (before todays twitter drama at least) and would be ready to support ence again if they only showed some promising results. But they are just getting worse and even players are now abandoning the sinking ship. It's easier to just troll and laugh at them for their bad decisions. So I would say that aleksib is more popular atm. There's still hype around him and OG can win games. TLDR biskela more popular, most people not salty anymore but laughing for bad results.

apparently not guess everyone in ence is too scared to talk about what actually happened for them to change him for sunny

Ask him if he believes that he is the biggest joke in csgo scene since Niko "I am underrated and Karigan is overrated" statement.
