The success of the ENCE team, which rose to the top of the Counter-Strike shooter game last spring, was clearly reflected in the players ’revenue.
During 2019, ENCE was represented by Aleksi “allu” Jalli, Jere ”Sergej” Salo, Sami ”xseveN” Laasanen, Jani “Aerial” Jussila, Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen and Miikka “suNny” Kemppi.
The Estonian was fired in August 2019, when he was replaced by Kemppi.
Last year, Laasanen earned the most from the players, earning 126,406 euros.
Virolainen (€ 124,268), Jussila (€ 124,106) and Salo (€ 122,855) also earned similar figures.
Revenues for all four increased sharply compared to last year.
In 2018, Laasanen's earned income was € 28,381, Virolainen's 33,282, Jussila's 25,168 and Salon's 27,747.

Jalli's and Kemppi's tax revenues, on the other hand, decreased compared to the previous year.
According to recent tax data, Jalli's earned income was EUR 70,062 and capital income was 1508. Kemppi, who had not played for most of the year, earned earned income of 60,127 and capital income of 2933.
In 2018, Jalli earned income of EUR 71,149 and capital income of 3844. Kemppi's income in 2018 was 94,769.
The difference in income between the duo and other players is explained by the fact that Kemppi and Jalli have limited companies.
Last year's turnover of A. Jalli Oy, founded by Jalli, was EUR 318,000 and the result was EUR 158,000. Kemppi's turnover was EUR 190,000 and the result was EUR 77,000.
Elias “Jamppi” Olkkonen, who joined ENCE this spring, earned 22,349 euros last year.
In 2019, Olkkonen played for the Finnish SJ Gaming team.
Players may not report all of their sports earnings to the taxpayer, as the Sports Income Funding Act allows 50 percent of sports earnings per year to be transferred to an athlete’s fund for later withdrawals for tax purposes.
The maximum funding amount is EUR 100,000 per year.

ENCE's CS team currently consists of Jalli, Salo, Kemppi, Olkkonen and Jussila, who has recently been on sick leave.
Laasanen joined the HAVU team in August.
As a result of the great scam of the autumn, Slaava “Twista” Räsänen, who had previously worked as a coach, was transferred to an analyst.
