ENCE signs VAC Banned CSGO player to create six-man roster

ENCE eSports has created a six-man roster with the signing of Elias "Jamppi" Olkkonen. The organisation further revealed in the press release that Aleksi "allu" Jalli has handed over the reigns of in-game-leader (IGL) to Miikka "suNny" Kemppi.

Stuck through the slump, ENCE eSports is going the Astralis way. Finnish organisation has announced the arrival of Elias “Jamppi” Olkkonen, therefore, officially establishing a six-man roster. 18-year-old is a rising star in the Finnish scene with flawless skills and 1.37 rating. Elias has signed a two-year contract with ENCE eSports though he is restricted to play at Valve sponsored majors.

During late 2019, Elias was close to signing with present-day OG, however, the organization went forward with Mateusz “mantuu” Wilczewski. It was alleged that the organization went on to sign with the latter due to Elias’ association with a VAC banned account which he claims to have sold to his friend. 18-year-old has reportedly filed a lawsuit against Valve over the concerned matter.

ENCE eSports will play all non-major events with Elias “Jamppi” Olkkonen whereas Sami “xseveN” Laasanen will be the fifth player for the ESL One: Road to Rio. The organisation further revealed in the press release that Aleksi “allu” Jalli has handed over the reigns of in-game-leader (IGL) to Miikka “suNny” Kemppi.

I’m very happy to be joining ENCE today and can’t wait to get our games started. To be a part of a lineup with so many merited and accomplished players is an honour and I will surely keep on learning new things and improving as a player moving forward. This is a chance I’ve been waiting to get and I’m hoping we can make ENCE fans happy with great results in the future,

Elias “Jamppi” Olkkonen

With his addition, the lineup intends to get back to eminence after kicking former IGL Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen in the aftermath of StarLadder Berlin major 2019.

It has been a rocky road in the past few months, which has caused issues with the players mentally and affected their performance. We as an organization have to make steps towards further professionalizing the environment in a multitude of ways. Our results have been very disappointing, so changes needed to happen. Signing Elias to the team was an opportunity we couldn’t pass on and he deserves the chance to showcase his talent to the world,

Niklas Ojalainen, General Manager of ENCE eSports

The revamped lineup of ENCE eSports is:

  • Aleksi “allu” Jalli
  • Jani “Aerial” Jussila
  • Jere “sergej” Salo
  • Miikka “suNny” Kemppi
  • Sami “xseveN” Laasanen (ESL One: Road to Rio)
