doto released from ENCE

The Finn leaves the organization just weeks after being replaced on the roster by Pavle "⁠Maden⁠" Bošković.

ENCE have announced that Joonas "⁠doto⁠" Forss has been released from his contract with the organization. His departure comes in the aftermath of his benching from the team in early January, when the 25-year-old made way for the addition of the former FunPlus Phoenix star.

Previously part of HAVU, doto joined ENCE in late 2020 alongside coach Eetu "⁠sAw⁠" Saha. Shortly after their arrival, the organization decided to go international, moving away from the Finnish core as they brought in former c0ntact duo Marco "⁠Snappi⁠" Pfeiffer and Lotan "⁠Spinx⁠" Giladi, as well as Sprout's Paweł "⁠dycha⁠" Dycha.

doto is free to join another team

In 2021, the organization was able to regain lost ground as they spent the majority of the time around the top 20. They peaked in seventh place in the rankings in early November on the back of a run to second place at IEM Fall Europe, which helped them qualify for PGL Major Stockholm, where they went on to reach the Legends stage.

Despite showing promising signs, the organization decided that a change needed to be made to keep them "in the fight against the best teams," and doto found himself on the chopping block to make way for Maden.

The 25-year-old Finn is now looking for a new team and is open for a variety of offers.

"I'm not looking for anything particular. Of course it would be nice to join an existing project instead of having to grind from the bottom again, but I'm not against that if I see potential in it. Overall my ambitions for the future are to keep improving as an individual and reaching new heights with whatever team that might be," doto told HLTV.org.

"I have never been that selfish of a player when it comes to playing certain roles etc. so I'm willing to sacrifice for the greater good if I see it fit. That said I still have some preferences for my role, for example not having an overly static role and being allowed to move and react to situations on my own. I'm open to joining a Finnish or international roster as well, though there aren't that many opportunities right now in Finland, unfortunately."

Yep, I 100% agree. But some people are suggesting that Havu should -Sm1llee +Doto which would not solve their T-side problems directly.

so there is doto and zehn without a team right now.. I hope one of those will join HAVU and other guy goes to sunNy's or allu's project. Gorillaz is still deadproject so.. will see -slowi or -sm1llee and +doto will be sick. doto go IGL and let slowi go kill as he did before taking IGL role. slowi could also be 2nd awper and suprised some enemy with aggressive plays

Man, I think you're into something here. Doto started with leading and now he's among the most experienced players in the whole country, having been under the supervision of sAw all the time. I mean who could tell how well he could IGL right now? I'm sure that Slowi and doto could compliment each other and work together as leading duo. One is warm and outgoing, other is calm and flexible & they know each other well.
2022-02-04 13:34
They could get nice Finnish lineup with Doto Sunny Sergej Zehn Zoree Sunny maybe igl again with possibility to Zehn calling to midrounds or something.

I remember quite a few nice plays by him, but he did mess up many times, often being inconsistent as well. Guess it was expected. All the best for the future :)
