xseveN joined HAVU
Finnish HAVU introduced Sami "xseveN" Laasanen as the fifth player. He took the place of Aaro "hoody" Peltokangas, who previously left the squad to resume his career in Valorant.
Laasanen's previous team was ENCE. Since 2018 they have won two big trophies: StarSeries i-League Season 6 and BLAST Pro Series Madrid 2019. The Finns also reached the final of the major IEM Katowice 2019, where they lost to Astralis.
Despite the transfer, xseveN will continue to play for ENCE in the qualifying round for ESL One Rio 2020. This is to ensure that the team does not lose their RMR points. In April ENCE signed Elias "Jamppi" Olkkonen, but he can't compete in Valve's tournaments because of VAC-ban.
xseveN will play his debut game for HAVU on August 9 as part of the European qualification for the FunSpark ULTI 2020 tournament. The opponent of the Finns in the starting match of Group B will be x6tence.
