Today ENCE is officially signing Elias “Jamppi” Olkkonen, Finland’s most talented Counter-Strike prospect, to create a six-man roster
For ENCE, Counter-Strike is deep in its core. While our team has seen glimpses of hope with improvement in performance recently, we have all been disappointed with the results over the last months. Our goal is to be extremely competitive and fight neck-to-neck with the world’s best. To rectify the current lack of results, we have signed Elias “Jamppi” Olkkonen to a two-year contract.
"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
Our mission has always been to build a long-term, sustainable, winning culture. Today’s Counter-Strike esports is a hard fought and straining world, taking its toll on the players mentally and physically. We are taking a new step in fighting the fatigue to improve performance by moving to a six-man roster composition.
“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 "Willkey" Ojalainen, GM at ENCE
