DeKay’s Sources: ENCE set to replace Aleksib with suNny after Berlin Major

Finnish Counter-Strike team ENCE will replace Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen with Miikka “suNny” Kemppi, according to multiple sources.

It is expected that suNny will debut with the ENCE roster at BLAST Pro Series: Moscow 2019. 

suNny is still listed as a member of the Mousesports organization but a transfer to ENCE  is in the works or has been very recently completed, according to one source. 


In March, suNny was moved to the inactive list after a decision to change the majority of the Mousesports roster.

Aleksib has been a member of the ENCE organization since April of 2018. During his time with the team they won DreamHack Open Winter 2018 and reached the finals of the IEM Katowice Major. With the move, it is unclear at this time who will take over his in-game leading role.

ENCE are returning legends at the upcoming StarLadder Berlin Major. With rosters already locked, it will be the last tournament for Aleksib on the ENCE roster.

How to watch IEM Global Challenge 2020: stream, teams, schedule

The IEM Global Challenge is going to be one massive CS:GO event to cap off the year. While it’s not quite making the long-awaited return to offline events, it’s got the  best teams from NA and Europe. We’ve got all you need to know about the huge eight-team tournament right here.

CS:GO hasn’t had a big LAN since the IEM Katowice Major back in February 2020. The Rio Major was postponed again and again, before inevitably being cancelled due to the current global situation.

While IEM Global Challenge was meant to be on LAN, it’s not quite there yet. Nevertheless, the IEM Global Challenge features eight of the best teams from NA and Europe, duking it out over a huge $500,000 prize pool.

If you were doubting the results of the online era, and want to define a true champion of CS:GO in 2020, this is one event you won’t want to miss.

IEM Global Challenge 2020 stream

The IEM Global Challenge 2020 will be streamed live on the ESL CS:GO Twitch channel. We’ve embedded the stream below for your convenience.

IEM Global Challenge 2020 teams

Eight teams from across the globe have descended on Europe for the IEM Global Challenge 2020. The usual suspects have climbed their way to the top, including world number one Vitality, 2020 breakout stars Heroic, and four-time Major winners Astralis.

That doesn’t mean there’s not new talent to keep your eyes out for. FURIA has had a stellar 2020 over in North America, and will be looking to prove that Brazilians have a team to rally behind come 2021. Chaos will also be looking to go out with a bang, after the organization announced they will be pulling out of CS:GO after the event.
