ENCE win LOOTBET Season 9 – How did they do it?
Due to being an invited team, ENCE had already qualified to the playoffs, and did not have to go through the whole group stage.
Their first match was against the Bulgarian squad of SKADE. The blues have proven in the past that they are one of the best teams in Europe, but they had to pull off one more win against this European ENCE squad. The first map (Overpass) went the distance, finishing 19-16 in ENCE’s favour. Then came Train which went the way of SKADE. And lastly, we had Inferno which concluded with a 16-8 scorline, heading toward ENCE.
Next up for ENCE was the Semifinal match-up against the Swedish core of Dignitas. They were no match for the newly formed ENCE lineup, as they lost both maps (16-8, 16-11). This win for ENCE meant that they reached the Grand Finals.
Whilst ENCE were climbing their side of the bracket, so was Team Fiend, beating teams like Copenhagen Flames, forZe, as well as Entropiq. Despite their heroic effort during this tournament, they just did not show their full potential in the grand finals. ENCE won both maps 16-6 and were crowned champions of the 9th season of LOOTBET. Here is how it ended:
As stated recently, ENCE’s main awper Allu is now on temporary leave. The next step for ENCE is to adapt and improve together with this new roster featuring their stand-in Hades. They’ve already between some of the best tier 2 teams, but now they must improve their consistency. Their next event is the Elisa Invitational Summer 2021, taking place between May and July.
