allu's project moves under JANO banner; adds ottob & sLowi

The team will debut under the new organization at Assembly Summer 2022 on Thursday.

Aleksi "⁠allu⁠" Jalli and Slaava "⁠Twista⁠" Räsänen's temp lineup have joined forces with JANO, a rebrand and complete refresh of Finnish esports organization AHJO that is taking aim at competing among the best in the region.

allu and Twista return with new lineup

Former HAVU member Olli "⁠sLowi⁠" Pitkänen and 17-year-old Otto "⁠ottob⁠" Virtanen have been recruited to round out the project, which is led in-game by former SJ captain Tony "⁠arvid⁠" Niemelä, who has already been playing alongside allu and Lasse "⁠ZOREE⁠" Uronen on temp.

JANO will debut at Assembly Summer

"Getting a professional organization around the team is a huge deal," allu said in a press release. "Playing under JANO gives us a firm foundation and support network, which both are necessary for optimal team development."

The roster is set to make its debut under the new banner at Assembly Summer 2022 in Helsinki, Finland, where they will face a number of their countrymen from KOVA, HAVU, and ENCE Academy.

"For us, there hasn't been an offline event for a longer period," Twista explained when asked about attending the LAN. "It's a big deal to get back into the tournament environment with our team and compete against the Finns from other teams. It helps us to understand what is the current state of our team.

"We want to see similar performances from the players as seen in practices. If we can reach that level at the Assembly Summer 2022, we are satisfied."

JANO will compete with the following lineup:

Finland Aleksi "⁠allu⁠" Jalli
Finland Lasse "⁠ZOREE⁠" Uronen
Finland Tony "⁠arvid⁠" Niemelä
Finland Olli "⁠sLowi⁠" Pitkänen
Finland Otto "⁠ottob⁠" Virtanen

Finland Slaava "⁠Twista⁠" Räsänen (coach)

He owns 6,5% of ence so mb he doesn't want to sell that, and therefore stays in lower tiers. It's so unlikely that he would win anything anyways.

Aleksi would be a stretch really but Sergej really was a viable option . I wonder why isnt he part of the team.
2022-08-03 23:48
2 replies
because he doesnt want to play pro cs anymore. He'll probably end up making a comeback in a year or two when his money starts running out and he realizes he has nothing to fall back on other than playing CS professionally. He's young enough where he doesn't completely fuck himself over by taking a year or two hiatus, but he will end up never reaching his full potential as a player as a consequence.

easy to talk like that when you have a good scene bringing up talent :D, but JW and Flusha aren't stealing paychecks on eyeballers, they're trying to bring up some young swedish talents which is respectable (also I think they bought back the name to use for their org so they might've just built it from the ground up, not sure)
