ENCE announce hades benching

The first of two rumored changes in the ENCE lineup has been made official.

Polish AWPer Olek "⁠hades⁠" Miskiewicz has been moved to ENCE's inactive roster, the Finnish organization announced on Friday. The move comes just a day after the publication of HLTV.org's report indicating that the organization will go after Movistar Riders' Alvaro "⁠SunPayus⁠" Garcia.

This marks the end of the Pole's 15 months with the organization. It is the first of what is believed to be two changes in the ENCE lineup that started 2022 in hot form, as Vitality are linked with a move for Lotan "⁠Spinx⁠" Giladi to replace Kévin "⁠misutaaa⁠" Rabier.

hades is no longer a part of ENCE's starting lineup

hades joined ENCE on a temporary basis in May of 2021, standing in for Aleksi "⁠allu⁠" Jalli, but the move was made permanent the following June as the organization was impressed by the Pole's performance and the Finn's future remained uncertain.

With the AWPer, the team came out victorious from LOOT.BET Season 9 and Funspark ULTI 2021 Europe Playoffs 1 in his first year. Following the addition of Pavle "⁠Maden⁠" Bošković in 2022, ENCE went on an incredible run of form culminating with a No. 2 in the world rankings, matching the record set by the team's 2019 Finnish lineup.

However, ENCE were not able to claim trophies from any of the big event finals attended this year, with hades leaving the team with a 1.03 Big Event rating and a 0.91 average rating at the two Majors he participated.

ENCE set to bench hades, SunPayus transfer imminent - Report

"After evaluating the past season, the team management decided to move Olek "hades" Miskiewicz from our active CS:GO lineup," read the statement released by ENCE. "For the upcoming tournament season, we will be fielding a new AWPer, who will be announced at a later date," it continued.

"Benching hades is a tough decision, but one that I think needs to be made at this time. hades showed good progress and development [...] but for the direction we are going for we need a change," added Eetu "⁠sAw⁠" Saha.

ENCE will announce their new roster ahead of ESL Pro League Season 16's roster lock on August 16, with the tournament being the first the squad will attend following the end of the break.

ENCE are now:

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

Finland Eetu "⁠sAw⁠" Saha (coach)

Poland Olek "⁠hades⁠" Miskiewicz (benched)

Dreams about polish flag behind the ENCE logo ruined :C Hades was inconsistent, but making changes after a very good start in 2022 and a poor 2 tournaments it's non sense. I hope tthat chemistry with the new player will be as good as with Hades and they will win something.

spinx to vitality is and has been already confirmed for the organization for some time now Ence know that they need more of a star awper to replace the void left by spinx, if spinx didnt get bought out then Ence wouldnt have made any changes
2022-08-06 04:05
well he didn't even seem an primary awper to me when i was watching ence play (i legit didn't know he was the awper), so he definitely isn't something ultra special, better with rifles maybe?

AWP player is supposed to be the star player of your team, igl not. There's the difference. Hades definitely has some potential but he needs to work on his consistency. You can't have your awper disappear on important matches time after time.

good comment. so hades will be sitting at home for the next two years unless his contract gets bought out which is unlikely. its sad cuz i feel Hades played for the success of the team and not himself but maybe he knows now how to find the balance there. imo cant blame ENCE to keep the lineup fresh and ambitious. anyways, best of luck to him.

This was the first, which came up my mind. The organisations in E-Sport doing some weird stuff from time to time. I mean, it was just one month before and now they bench him...

Lets put nationality asaide and be honest with ourselves. Good move for ence. Hades is good awper, however VERY INCONSISTENT , whichis unacceptable on that level of competitions, and therefore, hopefully he will go to practice more to some tier 2 team to become tier 1 awper one day. HE's still realtively young and definitely not ready yet to take the responaibility he has on his shoulders now

I dont think he will/want to hold his current contract and waste time just because of money he has in his contract, besides, we don't know how his contract is build, therefore the best option for him will be to look out for new team and go there as fast as possible to not lose time on bench and being inactive , cuz the outcome might be devastating for his career.

So ence's new squad is (supposedly) going to be snappi, maden, dycha, sunpayus and launx? I'm down to watch that, if only because of all the unique nationalities. If sunpayus continues to play well and launx doesn't completely shit the bed then I could easily see them staying around their current rank, or at least stay within the top ten. And if spinx somehow ends up staying then they could easily content for titles tbh. The more competition, the better...
