The last player of the 2019 Katowice Major finalist ENCE roster has announced his departure from the team. Aleksi “allu” Jalli has moved from an inactive player on the ENCE roster to the transfer list, the Finnish organization announced.
“Our paths diverge at this crossroad, but hopefully we will see each other on the server once again,” Niklas “Willkey” Ojalainen, the General Manager of ENCE, said.
The Finnish sniper took a break from the active roster in May of 2021 due to personal reasons. His replacement at the time, Olek “hades” Miskiewicz, will continue to compete with the roster.
“We have been practicing and playing with hades, and he has shown great potential and results already. We want to give him the shot he deserves in our roster. By doing this, we cement our roster once again and can fully concentrate on improving and moving forward,” Willkey said.
Allu’s history on ENCE
Allu was a part of the ENCE roster back in its first iteration in 2013, under the name ENCE eSports. The Finnish organization signed the armature Finnish 4w roster which included allu. They stopped their Counter-Strike venture in mid-2014, which sent allu over to mouseports. He would then bounce around multiple teams. This included a stint with Ninjas in Pyjamas where he reached the finals of the 2015 Katowice Major.
ENCE returned to Counter-Strike in 2016 and allu joined up with the organization once again. This time, allu spent about four months with the team before he was acquired by FaZe Clan. ENCE would continue to have roster troubles until 2018, when they announced that allu would return once again. This time, the sniper was surrounded with soon-to-be star Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen and a young core of Finnish players.
This roster made their underdog Major run in 2019, placing second at the 2019 Katowice Major and first at BLAST Pro Series: Madrid 2019. Allu has not competed in a competitive tournament since May of 2021.
