As of today, Joonas "doto" Forss has been removed from our active CS:GO roster and moved to the bench.
Joonas “doto” Forss joined ENCE in November 2020 and was a vital building block of our 2021 roster. However, together with our General Manager Niklas “Willkey” Ojalainen, the team has decided some changes were needed for us to take our next step.
“First of all, I want to personally thank Joonas for everything he did and achieved with us in 2021. I hope he will find a new home soon and will be able to keep showing and honing his skills in CS:GO.
If something in esports is certain, it's change. We felt we needed to make some changes to keep us in the fight against the best teams. After carefully assessing the market and what we had in our roster, we felt this change needed to be made.”
- Niklas “Willkey” Ojalainen, General Manager
During the past year, we saw a lot of success and shared many unforgettable moments together with doto, including tournament wins, as well as our incredible run in IEM Fall 2021 Europe. There, against all odds, we qualified to the Major, where we made it through the Challengers Stage and into the Legends Stage.
But now, it is time for us to move forward with new plans in mind for 2022. We will announce the new fifth player to our roster in the coming weeks.
We wish Joonas the best of luck and thank him for everything.
