ENCE signed doto and a new coach
ENCE bought Joonas "doto" Fross from HAVU and signed a two-year contract with him. Also from HAVU the coach of the Finnish team was taken over by Sakha "sAw".
The new player will replace Jani "Aerial" Jussila, who has retired to inactivity, while sAw will take the place of Slava "Twista" Räsänen, who was previously banned by eSports Integrity Commission for using coaching bug and took over as ENCE analyst.
