We are #ENHANCED

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, and local national leagues will grow in the coming years.

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.

Where did we end up

Today ENHANCED has been a home for 15 different players representing, us across several esports titles. We are continuing to build the local and national scene, as well as contesting the top teams in Europe.”

Our mission is to contribute to the Finnish esports scene as the dynamic and reliable organisation doing the grassroots work.

Our vision is to be the link between the amateur and semi-professional teams, to enhance and to provide a player path, as well as support talent in finding a balanced lifestyle.

Our values are agile, developing and sustainable. We work towards a healthy and organic scene.
