Twista stayed in ENCE as analyst
ENCE announced that it is looking for a replacement for their coach Slaava "Twista" Ryasyanen, who was banned by ESIC for 15.75 months for using the coaching bug. Initially, the organization suspended the 33-year-old specialist but eventually transferred him to the position of team analyst.
Ryasyanen used the bug in 2017, when he was iGame coach. According to the ESIC report, he abused the vulnerability of the game in the 47th round of the PGL Major Krakow 2017 closed qualification match against Tricked, as well as in six rounds against Team Spirit Academy at the HellCase Cup.
ENCE CEO Niklas "Willkey" Oyalainen said that the organization supports honesty as a key principle of eSports, but appreciates the coach's contribution to the team's success and does not believe that mistakes of the past should affect the future.
Recall that Twista joined ENCE in August 2018, further leading the squad to win the StarSeries i-League Season 6, DreamHack Open Winter 2018 and BLAST Pro Series Madrid 2019, as well as the major final of IEM Katowice 2019.
