The Finnish esports organization ENCE has officially completed its CS:GO roster by signing a contract with Nertz. The 23-year-old Israeli joins the team from Endpoint, where he spent a little over a year, but was noted for high individual statistics.
We have been watching Nertz for some time now as his skills and potential are undeniable. He seems to fit in very well with the team, both in terms of role and personality. I am happy to welcome Nertz to the team and start working hard to reach our full potential together!

Nertz joined the Endpoint roster in November 2021, having moved from NOM eSports. Here, the 23-year-old Israeli became the winner of the ALL IN Series, ESL Premiership Spring 2022, ESL Pro League Conference Season 16 and ESL Premiership Autumn 2022, and also made it to the top three at Polska Liga Esportowa Superpuchar 2022, CCT Central Europe Series #2 and CCT Central Europe Series #3.
However, before the start of the open qualifiers for the RMR tournaments for Europe, the esportsman suddenly disappeared from the Endpoint starting lineup. In turn, ENCE recently said goodbye to valde, citing the difference in vision for the game style. At the same time, it is known that the Finnish club was interested in the services of the Israeli last year, but then settled on the eminent Dane.
For me, joining an organization like ENCE is like a crazy story. I remember the days when I heard an EZ4ENCE song while playing DM, so you can understand how proud I am now. I'm really happy to represent them.

Note that these changes come after the start of CCT Central Europe Malta Finals 1, where ENCE is preparing to play in the group stage. Nevertheless, the team will play with HENU, a player from their academy, at the tournament.
The 23-year-old Israeli will make his debut for ENCE in the group stage of ESL Pro League Season 17. The European team is in Group D, which will also feature Team Liquid, Natus Vincere, Astralis, Team Spirit, ATK, forZe and Rare Atom.
