What exactly entails a difference in play-style?

That’s the question we’re left pondering with ENCE distancing from valde, after only a matter of months. Was valde given roles he didn’t want? Was he trying to overrule Snappi? Was he trying to suggest that ENCE should actually win some games?

Whatever it was doesn’t really matter, but it’s amusing to imagine. valde’s time on ENCE has been cut frustratingly short, due to a aforementioned play-style difference, and now he’s back looking for a new team.

Maybe he can finally get that Astralis move he’s been angling for for years.

In his stead, ENCE have gone back to what has worked before; taking talent from Israel and trying to mould them into a star player. And probably try to sell them for a massive profit.

Nertz was rumoured to be the replacement immediately - suggesting that this has been in the works for a while - and was announced days after.

He’s an interesting player, the Israeli. One look at his recent form suggests he’s too good for the tier of play he’s currently in, and that he should be able to make the step up, but it’s taken a while to get there.

In fact, early on in his Endpoint career he wasn’t the focal point of the roster, but has proven to be an exceptional player and gotten the move he deserves.

When Endpoint smacked NAVI 2-0, Nertz put up a 1.54. He can definitely play.

Let’s just hope he doesn’t have new ideas on how to play the game.
