Snappi ruled out for IEM Winter, Maden steps in for ENCE

The Danish in-game leader will miss the event as he tested positive for COVID-19.

Update: Snappi has Tweeted that he hopes to join ENCE at a later portion of the tournament if he returns a negative test in time.

ENCE will be playing with a substitute at their last LAN event of the year. The Finnish organization will be without the services of the 31-year-old Marco "⁠Snappi⁠" Pfeiffer as he tested positive for COVID-19, with his place being filled with Pavle "⁠Maden⁠" Bošković from FunPlus Phoenix.

The Montenegrin rifler is currently benched on FunPlus Phoenix, who have discontinued their CS:GO division, and will be playing his first official since losing to ENCE in the closed qualifier for this exact tournament over a month ago.

Snappi misses out on the LAN event

Despite getting a strong prospect such as Maden to stand in, losing their in-game leader for IEM Winter will be a big hit for ENCE, who have posted some worrying results recently. The international roster did well in the Challengers Stage of the Major, but got eliminated 0-3 after one-sided matches in Legends, following that up with a group stage exit from Dreamhack Open November.

IEM Winter will be their first outing in over two weeks, happening on December 2 - 12 in Stockholm, Sweden. ENCE find themselves in group B with the likes of Gambit, FaZe, and fnatic, and will face Virtus.pro in their opening match.

ENCE will use the following lineup at IEM:

Finland Joonas "⁠doto⁠" Forss
Poland Paweł "⁠dycha⁠" Dycha
Poland Olek "⁠hades⁠" Miskiewicz
Israel Lotan "⁠Spinx⁠" Giladi
Montenegro Pavle "⁠Maden⁠" Bošković (stand-in)

Finland Eetu "⁠sAw⁠" Saha (coach)

Their form fell after the first stage in Majors. They have played 6 games after that so it does not tell much. Lets hope for the best.
