Seregj benched in ENCE due to lack of motivation
Jere 'Sergej' Salo has made a mutual decision with his current team ENCE that he will be taking a break from Counter-Strike Global Offensive and will complete his Finnish military service instead. Sergej also has a lack of motivation to pursue the game.
ENCE's statement reads, "Jere (Sergej) has come to the conclusion that he currently doesn’t have the necessary motivation to pursue forward in the intense world of professional Counter-Strike."
ENCE has praised Sergej's abilities but stated that this decision is not beneficial for either party. The 18-year-old averaged just a 0.98 rating in 2020, falling to 0.91 for the last three months.
SaddyX to step up
Stepping in the shoes of Sergej will be 19-year old SaddyX from team SJ, who will debut for ENCE during the Dreamhack Masters Winter Europe.
With Sergej leaving ENCE now have just one player from the roster that was assembled in April 2018 who reached the IEM Katowice 2019 Major grand final- Aleksi "Allu" Jalli.
SaddyX will be joining newcomer Joonas "doto" Forss who has just played 2 matches with the team before it went through roster changes.
ENCE will use the following roster in DreamHack Masters Europe Winter:
Aleksi "allu" Jalli
Miikka "suNny" Kemppi
Elias "Jamppi" Olkkonen
Joonas "doto" Forss
