ENCE has been revealed as the second to last team to receive an invite to DreamHack Masters Dallas. The $250,000 event will be held at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas. Sixteen teams will be battling it out for the trophy and lion’s share of the prize pool.
The Finnish roster is set to join the likes of FaZe, Renegades, Vitality, North, Liquid, NRG, Ninjas in Pyjamas, fnatic FURIA, G2, Isurus, and Windigo. Two more invites are set to go out alongside the Chinese and Asian qualifiers to determine the remaining seven spots.
ENCE shocked the world with their run at the IEM Katowice Major where they made a final appearance against Astralis. While they didn’t take home the trophy, they have continued their run of success since. They made another final in Shanghai, China at the StarSeries i-League season 7 finals but once again suffered a loss, this time at the hands of Natus Vincere.
The roster jumped into a contender quickly and shown that Liquid and Na’Vi may not have the hold on second and third place many believed they had. While Astralis still seems relatively safe, the more competition directly below them the better.
