Esports organization ENCE is about to replace AWP main Olek “hades” Miskiewicz to free a spot for the arrival of Movistar Riders’ AWP main Alvaro “SunPayus” Garcia, according to a report via HLTV.
Hades has been on ENCE’s team since June 2021 when he took the slot of all. The Polish AWP main has assisted the international roster to a new high ceiling in 2022, with achievements such as the runner up finishes at ESL Pro League season 15 and IEM Dallas, and the top four spot at the PGL Antwerp Major. These strong performances made ENCE peak at number two in the world at some point, according to HLTV’s leaderboards.
The youngster, however, has recently been underwhelming while matching up the mechanical prowess of AWP mains from other top teams in S Tier events, which may have changed ENCE’s mind to make a roster change currently. SunPayus has been the best player in Movistar Riders by far this year and pushed the all Spanish native team to make the top 10 in HLTV’s ranking before the summer player break started, starting with an impressive first place at ESL Challenger Valencia and ending with a semifinals placement at IEM Cologne, one of the most coveted CS GO events of the calendar.
It’s currently unknown who Movistar Riders would look to bring in order to replace SunPayus should the deal to ENCE actually complete. Losing a player of his caliber would be a major disadvantage to Movistar Riders’ hopes for the remainder of the split since there’s no other native Spanish AWP main with experience around the S Tier level.
In addition to changing AWP main, ENCE is also reportedly trying to find a change for its star player Lotan “Spinx” Giladi, according to HLTV. The Israeli is reportedly almost done joining Vitality, while replacing Kévin “misutaaa” Rabier.

Now going into our next player, Ukrainian rifle main Viktor “sdy” Orudzhev will be Natus Vincere’s current CS GO player throughout the upcoming Major season. The team stated today that the former MAD Lions and Team Spirit player will remain until at least the end of IEM Rio Major in November which is the last major event of the year.
Sdy was urgently subbed in to replace Kirill “Boombl4” Mikhaylov after the former in game leader was changed due to controversies, after Na’Vis runner up finish at PGL Antwerp Major. From then on out, sdy has completed two events under the NAVI organization and helped them to win the BLAST Premier Spring Final and finish in second place at IEM Cologne.
Teammate B1ad3 is rather confident that if sdy manages to continue to improve his gameplay and slightly adjust to the team’s unique playstyle, NAVI will become a powerhouse that are able to win tournaments in the rest of the professional calendar. The CS GO’s juggernaut next competition will be the BLAST Premier Fall Groups, in which they were destined to play into the same group of G2, Team Liquid, and Complexity.
