Jamppi to step down from ENCE - Report
The 19-year-old player is not going to be a part of the team's new lineup and is weighing up his options.
Earlier in January, DBLTAP reported that ENCE were looking to bring in Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer and Thomas "TMB" Bundsbæk to complete their lineup, which has been depleted to just three players following the benching of Jere "sergej" Salo and Miikka "suNny" Kemppi.
Snappi has been made available for transfer by c0ntact, while TMB is on AGF's books and has garnered a lot of attention in recent days, having been selected as a "Bold prediction" by three Danish players who made the HLTV Top 20. The final piece of the puzzle, according to Ilta-Sanomat, is Tuomas "SADDYX" Louhimaa, who stood in for ENCE in their final matches of 2020 and was last week sold by SJ to an undisclosed organisation.
A switch to a different game could be beneficial to Jamppi's career, which has been hampered in Counter-Strike due to a VAC ban connected to an account he owned, ruling him out of Valve-sponsored events. The Finnish player, who was featured in our "One for the future" article series in 2019, reportedly missed out on a chance to join OG due to the ban, but moved up to the top tier by linking up with ENCE in April of 2020.
A disappointing year for ENCE finished in turbulent fashion as Jani "Aerial" Jussila, sergej, and suNny left ENCE's starting lineup in the span of two months. In December, the organization said that it took "full responsibility for not understanding the severity of the existent problems" in the team, noting that it was evaluating its options moving forward.
According to the reports, ENCE will have the following lineup:
