CSGO professional Miikka ‘suNny’ Kemppi announced on Twitter he had come to an agreement with ENCE that allows him to search for a new team heading into 2021.
Finish esports org ENCE has had a bit of a rough go as of late, losing Jere ‘sergej’ Salo after the 18-year-old opted to leave to serve his required military conscription in Finland instead of continuing to play.
It seems like sergej wasn’t the only one looking to get out and make a change, as suNny announced on December 22 that he had come to an agreement with the org to look for a new home in 2021.
ENCE and I have come to an agreement that I am allowed to search a new team for 2021. Please contact me or ENCE’s gm @willkey87 since I don’t have an agent.
There is talks going on, but nothing has been decided yet.
Thanks for the support!

“ENCE and I have come to an agreement that I am allowed to search a new team for 2021,” SuNny wrote on Twitter. “Please contact me or ENCE’s gm [willkey] since I don’t have an agent. There is talks going on, but nothing has been decided yet. Thanks for the support!”
So, while technically still signed on the roster, the higher-ups have now given the 26-year-old free reigns to look for a new team, though there doesn’t seem to be any of the drama that came along with sergej’s departure.
ENCE is far from the only European team in the midst of the rebuilding process heading into 2021, so while there’s no telling yet where suNny will end up next, there should be plenty of opportunity.
Team Liquid is obviously making moves, with Russel ‘Twistzz’ Van Dulken announcing in the post-game interview of the IEM Global Challenge Grand Finals that he was headed to a new org in 2021. Former MiBR player FalleN has already been hinted at for that spot though, so the chances of seeing SuNny in white and blue, based on what we know, are pretty slim.
As for who’s going to fill out ENCE’s roster, which is now down to three players, that remains to be seen as well, with the org announcing they would “further communicate our 2021 plans after the Christmas holidays have concluded.”
