Paweł "dycha" Dycha has renewed his contract with ENCE, which ties him with the Finnish esports organisation for two more years. The 26-year-old Counter-Strike player announced the news in front of Polish fans at Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2024, ahead of ENCE's match against Team Falcons.

Dycha joined ENCE in January 2021 as a part of a major roster rebuild. Besides dycha, ENCE at the time also acquired Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer and Lotan "Spinx" Giladi, who both ended up leaving the team in the following years.

In December, ENCE went through another major roster rebuild, replacing four Counter-Strike players and a coach, leaving dycha as the current longest-serving member of the team.

A Key Part Of ENCE

Since joining ENCE in January 2021, dycha has become a key member of ENCE's active roster, averaging a 1.09 performance rating during his tenure. Last year, the Pole also helped ENCE win the organisation's first trophy since 2019 at Intel Extreme Masters Dallas 2023 and claimed three silver medals from ESL Challenger Katowice 2023, IEM Cologne 2023, and Gamers8 2023.

In the announcement, ENCE CEO Niklas Ojalainen made a statement praising dycha for his contributions and praising the 26-year-old for what he has helped the team accomplish over the last three years.

"It has been a pleasure having dycha with us for three years already. That's a big achievement in the world of esports, and we have been happy to have him."

"So when we were talking extension, it was easy to decide we wanted to have him for the future as well. I'm delighted that dycha re-signed with us and will be grinding more years to his service coin with ENCE."

By renewing his contract, dycha will stay with ENCE for at least two more year, extending his stay to 2026. He is the only remaining player of ENCE's most successful roster since the organisation decided to field an international roster, which fell apart at the end of 2023, when ENCE lost their key players to Heroic and Falcons.

However, ENCE didn't need long to rebuild, signing the former Polish 9INE core, in-game leader Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander, and coach Jakub "kuben" Gurczynski. The new-look roster already exceeded expectations and made the IEM Katowice 2024 playoffs, where they unfortunately lost to Team Falcons.

ENCE are now set to fight for a ticket for PGL Copenhagen Major in PGL Major Copenhagen Europe RMR B, which is set to take place on February 19-22.
