The journey of two gamers
“Playing video games has always been the best way for me to spend my free time. My brother who I enjoyed playing with was quick to contest me in different games across different platforms. We had a good mixture of competition and teamwork when playing together, which in these games was often required to succeed.
When esports was first introduced to me through CS: GO, I experienced gaming from a whole new perspective. It was a more competitive form of gaming.
On the outside, CS: GO was very familiar to the earlier Source version that I had played quite a lot, but after following professionals play for a while, you would start to understand the different elements beneath. The strategical aspect which consists of hasty decision making, teamwork and movement, combined together with an insane amount of raw skill was something I’ve never witnessed in any other video game before.
“I believe that CS: GO is a great game for esports. The scene around the game has developed so much around the world and it continues to grow on national levels. The national leagues will continue to grow in the coming years.”
Felix Kaukiainen, Founder of Enhanced Esports
Where did we end up
In 2018 we established our foothold in the Finnish CS: GO scene as a gateway organisation for new up- and coming teams. Our goal was to develop a potential team from amateur to semi-professionals, with help of our management capabilities and know-how. We succeeded to win the Assembly Summer 2018 BYOC tournament with the team, which gave us great momentum by that time.
Today ENHANCED has been a home for almost 30 players representing ENHANCED in various esports titles, most notably in PUBG and CS: GO.
We continue to contribute in the local and national scene, as well as contest some of the top teams in Europe.
We want to continue supporting the growth of Finnish esports, and are excited to do so with our players, streamers and partners.
