ENCE Says Goodbye to Two Key Members Amidst CS2 Roster Shake-Up

ENCE Says Goodbye to Two Key Members Amidst CS2 Roster Shake-Up

ENCE, one of the top five CS2 teams in the world, has officially bid farewell to leader Marco “Snappi” Pfeiffer and head coach Eetu “sAw” Saha on November 26th. This marks the end of an era for the Finnish organization, as these departures leave big shoes to fill.

The Departure of Snappi and sAw

Despite the organization offering contract extensions with competitive compensation, Snappi and sAw opted to leave ENCE to pursue new opportunities elsewhere. Reports indicate that Snappi is set to sign with Saudi organization Falcons for 2024, while sAw’s next destination remains uncertain.

ENCE’s General Manager, Niklas “Willkey” Ojalainen, expressed understanding for their decision, stating, “For us, it’s now time for a change as both Eetu and Marco wanted to seek out new opportunities for themselves. We made it possible for both of them to continue with us and extend their contracts with us with great compensation. It was their own decision to make the change, and we honor that choice.”

Their Contributions and Legacy

Snappi and sAw were instrumental in ENCE’s transition from an all-Finnish project into a formidable international lineup in 2021. Their leadership and strategy led the team to win IEM Dallas in 2023 and secure runner-up positions in several tier-one tournaments such as ESL Pro League season 15 in April 2022, IEM Cologne in August 2023, and Gamers8 in August 2023. The team’s success owes much to their efforts in building a solid roster that pushed ENCE into the world’s top-five teams.

The Potential Impact on ENCE

The departure of Snappi and sAw leaves ENCE with a considerably weakened roster, reducing the team to Guy “NertZ” Iluz, Paweł Dycha, Pavle “maden” Bošković, and Alvaro “SunPayus” Garcia. Fans speculate how this change will affect the team’s performance in the upcoming CS2 season and whether ENCE will be able to maintain their recent high-level performances without these seasoned veterans.

One potential bright spot is the unconfirmed rumor that four-time Major champion gla1ve left Astralis on November 22nd to join ENCE, alongside the former Virtus Pro and Apeks coach Jakub “kuben” Gurczyński. If this turns out to be true, it could be a game-changer for the Finnish organization.

Fan Reactions and the Impact on ENCE’s Fan Base

ENCE’s fans have had mixed reactions to Snappi and sAw’s departure. Many have expressed gratitude for their contributions to the team’s success, while others are left feeling uncertain about the team’s future. ENCE enthusiasts eagerly await an official announcement regarding roster replacements, hoping that the new additions will further strengthen the team and secure their continued success in the competitive CS2 landscape.

In conclusion, Snappi and sAw’s departure from ENCE has left an undeniable void in the team’s structure. The Finnish organization’s ability to fill their shoes and maintain their top-five position will be an exciting and closely watched development. As the esports world speculates on replacements and possible roster changes, one thing remains clear: ENCE’s faithful fans will always be at their side, cheering them on in victory and defeat.
