A spot in the Grand Final at ESL Pro League Season 15 once again underlined the positive trend, that ENCE has been on lately.
The Finnish Organization changed its direction at the start of 2021 when the Finnish core of players was switched out with an international lineup. Among the new players on the team was the Danish in-game leader Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer. Since then the Dane has been part of a team that has reached two Grand Finals and consistently been beating teams in the top 10 in the world.
So how can this be done with a lineup of relatively inexperienced players, who was not on the radar of any top teams just one year ago? One of the answers could be the style of play. Under the guidance of coach Eetu "sAw" Saha and in-game leader Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer, ENCE has been one of the few teams in 2022 with a near 50% round wins on their T-side against the best opponents in the world (top 10 teams). Here one thing, in particular, has been interesting to see. The economy game of ENCE is challenging the normal standards of CS.
- I very rarely agree with what a lot of people are saying. When you look at the numbers, they will prove that the textbook way of thinking is very much wrong, the in-game leader of ENCE explains.
The different approach to one of the most aspects of the game is an advantage for ENCE according to the 31-year-old Dane.
It is an advantage for us, that we have good economic control, while other people think we are doing it as a brain-dead move, but it is definitely not that way.
You can see the full interview with Snappi, where he touches upon the current ENCE roster, his way of in-game leading, and how long time he is planning on playing CS:GO.
ENCE are playing Copenhagen Flames at BLAST Spring Premier Showdown later today at 16.30 (CEST).
