ENCE eSports’ Aleksi ‘allu’ Jalli produced one of the most impressive moments of ESL One: Cologne 2018 so far with an insane 1 vs. 5 clutch against Natus Vincere.
As one of the most experienced professional players in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, allu has played for the likes of NiP, FaZe Clan, Mousesports, and OpTic Gaming.
However, the 26 year old Finn has previously expressed a desire to play in an entirely Finnish roster that can compete with the world’s best teams and he seems to have got that as part of ENCE eSports.
ENCE surprised just about everyone with their ESL One: Cologne performance, defeating the likes of NiP and Mousesports and only narrowly missing out on a quarterfinal spot following a 2-1 defeat to Na’Vi.
The main reason that the Finnish side was able to take Na’Vi to three maps was allu’s incredible performance on Dust 2, which they eventually won 16-14, where he finished with a 32-16 score.
This performance also included what is arguably the best play of the tournament so far where he somehow managed to win a 1 vs. 5 against the CT side of Na’Vi:
ENCE will take huge confidence from their performance in Germany and go into future tournaments with the knowledge that they can trade blows with the best teams on the planet.
Despite allu’s stunning performance against Na’Vi, most people would argue that 16 year old Jere ‘sergej’ Salo was the star of the team at the tournament.
The youngster finished the event with a kill to death ratio of 1.32, despite the team’s losses to Astralis and Na’Vi, and an impressive 92.5 ADR.
ESL One: Cologne will resume on July 6th with Na’Vi taking on Fnatic for a spot in the semifinals.
