Today we are welcoming two new faces in our Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team. Joonas "doto" Forss will be joining the ENCE CS:GO lineup and Eetu “sAw” Saha is coming in as the new Head Coach after deciding to end his playing career.
Thanks to HAVU's cooperation in negotiating Joonas’ contracts buyout, we have found a great fit to the team and are also fortunate to add Eetu as our new Head Coach.
Press Release, 5.11.2020
After Aerial stepped down from the active roster to prioritize his well-being, the need for a new player became apparent. ENCE initiated discussions with HAVU, expressing interest in acquiring Joonas "doto" Forss. The cooperation between the two teams continues to be fruitful, and we have reached a decision that all parties mutually agreed to.
ENCE has bought out doto's HAVU contract and signed him to a two-year deal. The details of the transaction are confidential between the concerned parties.
"After unfortunate events, we landed into a position where we needed to search for a new addition to our CSGO roster along with a new Head Coach. We did some research and came to the conclusion that we still want to keep a full Finnish lineup and coaching staff. After this ruling was set it was obvious that from the Finnish scene, doto could be a great addition to our lineup.
He's results-driven, motivated, and eager to prove his worth, all qualities you value in a professional esports player. Of course, we think he could also fit well into our roster and easily find his place among our guys. We are also very fortunate to have been able to acquire an experienced In-game leader as our new Head Coach in sAw to help us moving forward. I personally can't wait to see what they can do with us. Welcome aboard!"
