Forutsigelse av kamp: ENCE - paiN Gaming | CS:GO

ENCE and paiN Gaming will meet in the first round of the Play-In stage at IEM Katowice 2023. A very interesting meeting, since both teams have not yet shown themselves in the new season.

And yet, I have a feeling that the Brazilian team will once again show nothing at a major championship and will go to conquer their native region empty-handed.

In turn, ENCE failed at the end of last season, but the team had enough time to improve. Yes, and a banal difference in class can promise an easy meeting for Europeans.

Therefore, here, excuse me, but without much intrigue. ENCE should close the match in their favor, and the team is probably booked for the IEM Katowice 2023 group stage.


The fourteenth team of the world ranking failed in the main stage of IEM Rio Major 2022, where, although they got two victories, they generally looked bad.

Then the European team went to Elisa Masters Espoo 2022, where they made it to the playoffs, but lost to the old Astralis roster in the quarterfinals.

From the last ENCE became the champion of CCT North Europe Series 2, but you need to make allowances for the level of competition and the tournament itself. In general, the team played noticeably weaker than a year ago, and then we'll see.

Latest ENCE results:

  • Defeated by Astralis with a score of 1:2.
  • Victory over AGO with a score of 2:0.
  • Victory over Endpoint with a score of 2:1.
  • Victory over GamerLegion with a score of 2:1.
  • Victory over HAVU with a score of 2:0.

Best ENCE cards:

  • Mirage - 75% of wins.
  • Ancient - 62% of wins.
  • Nuke - 60% win rate.
  • Vertigo - 60% of wins.

At the same time, the European team started playing on Inferno back then, obviously making allowances for the upcoming appearance of Anubis.

The 29th team in the world ranking won the CBCS Invitational 2022 and CCT North America Series 2, and also got two victories at the ESL Challenger League Season 43 North America Relegation.

However, the Brazilian team played poorly at ESEA Autumn 2022 Cash Cup North America, where they failed to win both times.

And in general, if you dig deep, paiN Gaming has never had success in major tournaments. The latest case is dated June last year, and then the Brazilians did not win anyone. Therefore, there is every right to believe that the guys will fail now.

paiN Gaming latest results:

  • Victory over Nouns with a score of 2:0.
  • Victory over Snakes Den with a score of 2:0.
  • Victory over Villainous with a score of 2:0.
  • Victory over Nouns with a score of 2:0.
  • Defeated by ATK with a score of 0:2.

The best paiN Gaming cards:

  • Nuke - 88% of wins.
  • Inferno - 80% win rate.
  • Vertigo - 67% of wins.

In turn, the Brazilian team continues to refuse the Mirage card.

Forecast for the match ENCE — paiN Gaming

It is clear that there are some doubts about ENCE, because for the last six months the team has definitely not looked like a formidable force at its level. Moreover, the team had obvious problems with consistency, since he often played second in big matches, and he stopped surprising with loud victories.

In turn, the Brazilian team looked great at their level and even won small championships. However, paiN Gaming did not achieve success at a distance, and the whole story goes back to the failed RMR tournaments.

In general, other things being equal, we are dealing with a passing match, where there is little chance for a sensation. Therefore, in this case, I would recommend betting on the victory of the ENCE team with Handicap in rounds (-3.5).

I følge ledende bookmakers spådommer er laget ENCE favoritten med gjennomsnittlige odds 1.177 for øyeblikket. Bookmakere anser henholdsvis paiN Gaming for å være kampens outsider med odds på seier på summen av ca. 8.078.
