We have some good news and some bad news.

Bad news first, ENCE has decided to step down from the tournament. We are currently co-operating with BLAST to find a suitable team to replace them in the Group B.

ENCE announced today, that their player Jani “Aerial” Jussila is on sick leave indefinitely. They are assessing the situation and their next steps without Aerial in their active line-up. This means, that they won’t be attending our tournament, as they can’t field a full roster.

The full announcement by ENCE can be seen täältä.

Grand Final is gone

At the same time, we are delighted to announce a schedule update. Grand Final won’t be needed for Elisa Invitational Fall 2020, because semi-finals will act as qualifier finals.

Not one, but two teams will qualify for BLAST Premier Fall Showdown. Just like in the first Elisa Invitational, when ENCE and Dignitas won their separate qualifier finals.

Next week will be full of action, as Elisa Invitational Fall 2020 kicks off on Monday.
