suNny leaves ENCE
The Finnish player says that he is "eager and ready" to compete on the big stages again.
Miikka "suNny" Kemppi has been released from his contract with ENCE, the Finnish player announced on Friday. The 26-year-old spent the last two months on the bench following an overhaul of the squad at the end of 2020.
suNny returned to ENCE for a fourth spell in September 2019, replacing Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen in a highly-scrutinised move. Internal strife and poor results marked his last tenure with the Finnish organisation, which retained only Aleksi "allu" Jalli and Joonas "doto" Forss for their international project.
The Finnish player was linked with a move to the former GODSENT squad, now playing under FunPlus Phoenix, before the team eventually signed mousesports veteran Chris "chrisJ" de Jong on loan. He also attempted to build a team with Robin "flusha" Rönnquist and Timothy "autimatic" Ta, but the project fell through due to a lack of interest from established organisations. autimatic has since switched to VALORANT, but suNny told Ilta-Sanomat that he remains open to the idea of linking up with flusha, who is on fnatic's bench.
suNny will be hoping to reignite a career that has stalled in the last two years. He was named the 16th best player of 2018 after playing a crucial role in mousesports' success that year, when the team won StarSeries i-League Season 4, V4 Future Sports Festival 2018 and ESL One New York.
“In the past months, there hasn't been anything to do but think and practice individually,” he wrote on Twitter. “One thing is sure: I am eager and ready to play and compete on the big stages again.”
