ENCE round out lineup with Maden

The Finnish organization has finalized its roster ahead of the 2022 season.

ENCE have announced the signing of Montenegrian rifler Pavle "⁠Maden⁠" Bošković from FunPlus Phoenix. With the new signing, the international squad is hoping to take the next step forward after a promising stint in the Autumn of 2021.

The 23-year old comes in to replace Joonas "⁠doto⁠" Forss following the Finn's benching earlier in January, which ended a year-long partnership between the Finnish player and organization. This won't be the first time Maden plays under the ENCE banner, however, as he briefly stood in for Marco "⁠Snappi⁠" Pfeiffer during IEM Winter.

Maden returns to ENCE on a permanent basis

Maden will be back in action with ENCE after sitting on FunPlus Phoenix's bench since November, when the Chinese organization decided to discontinue its CS:GO division and transfer-listed its roster.

Despite an underwhelming year for FunPlus Phoenix, the young rifler was able to maintain a respectable 1.09 rating across 2021 and his performances helped the European squad secure three final appearances, most notably at DreamHack Open January 2021 Europe and Snow Sweet Snow 1, even stealing the trophy from Gambit in the latter.

With Maden now gone, only Luka "⁠emi⁠" Vuković and Jesse "⁠zehN⁠" Linjala remain contracted to the Chinese organization as both Martin "⁠STYKO⁠" Styk and Asger "⁠Farlig⁠" Jensen left FunPlus Phoenix in January.

"We are very excited to bring Maden into the team! We already had a brief encounter with him at IEM Winter and he left a good first impression," said ENCE coach Eetu "⁠sAw⁠" Saha, welcoming Maden's arrival. "Maden is a social and easy-going guy who gets along well with the team. Also, he brings in a lot of firepower and aggression, which can help elevate our play for the upcoming season," sAw continued.

"Rolewise, there will be some changes to make Maden comfortable and make the team function better."

ENCE's International project rose rapidly through the ranks last Autumn after strong showings at ESL Pro League Season 14 and IEM Fall, peaking at #7 in the world rankings. However, a series of disappointing finishes in the closing stages of the year saw them drop several steps on the ladder.

The new-look ENCE are set to debut at the play-ins for IEM Katowice 2022 starting on February 15.

ENCE are now:

Denmark Marco "⁠Snappi⁠" Pfeiffer
Poland Olek "⁠hades⁠" Miskiewicz
Poland Paweł "⁠dycha⁠" Dycha
Israel Lotan "⁠Spinx⁠" Giladi
Montenegro Pavle "⁠Maden⁠" Bošković

Finland Eetu "⁠sAw⁠" Saha (coach)

Finland Aleksi "⁠allu⁠" Jalli (benched)
Finland Joonas "⁠doto⁠" Forss (benched)

Agreed. His highs have been very good but too often he misses one or two simple shots that even us regular folk could hit 99% of the time. Maden deserves a good team though, the guy's been pretty consistent despite not being on a world-beating team.

Actually Snappi said in ENCE behind the scenes that potential is huge, just have to utilize him right and get hades to right state of mind 99/100 games.

I don't disagree, I think he could be great. Just really needs to stop making easy misses every so often and whole rounds could change as a result... Whole team is punching above it's weight though which is good to see

I dont care how players perform during honeymoons tbh, he already peaked on his level in my opinion, there are younger and better available awps out there.
2022-01-22 10:06
And why was he good at the beginning of ence? Because they played tier2 matches back then. In tier1 he has been inconsistent. I also noticed from the ingame cameras that he is always getting a bit frustrated if he doesnt perform that well. But hopefully he will perform better this year, best of luck.

Yeah he actually played really well in EPL season 14. He just has to be more consistent. And in LAN events he was pretty poor last year, 0.89 impact rating. Not a good thing to have an awper with that low impact rating but maybe he will step up. I hope they will do well with maden, but I just dont have the biggest expectations for Hades, sry.

maden underrated
2022-01-21 16:17
Decent player, they for sure needed someone more to create space for the team, they only really had dycha for that and it didn't seem like it was enough. They will still need more changes if they want to be TOP 5-10 like they said, I think there is still a lot of mistakes that won't be fix with this change in the team and they are probably going to make more changes in the near future if their goals are really that high. GL ENCE, GL Maden!
2022-01-21 16:24
Best they could get for their team. But I guess they have to change some positions

yup, most likely dycha or snappi plays supportive role.

Snappi definitely should if they want to utilize the player roles the best possible as Snappi is washed up in the fragging department but does decently still as an IGL & support.

Maden is great, an excellent pick up and an upgrade to doto. The only problem is the PR, this will have a bad effect on finnish fans
