Allu leaves Katowice Major to tend to family matters in Finland
“I’m going home for a couple of days because my first born child is about to come to the world,” Allu said. “It's been tough after hearing my girlfriends water broke earlier this week and having to focus in CS.”
Several hours later he tweeted out a photo with his newborn and thanked his fans for their support.
Allu and ENCE have had some of the standout performers of the Katowice Major thus far. Entering the event as one of the top seeds in the New Challengers Stage, ENCE lived up to that billing by quickly advancing to the New Legends Stage with wins over Winstrike Team, G2 Esports, and Team Spirit.
Along the way, Allu has reasserted himself as a top Counter-Strike talent. A veteran of the scene that has played with such organizations as FaZe Clan, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and Mousesports, he dropped off the radar following a rocky 2017 with OpTic Gaming. He joined ENCE last year and has helped the team become a force in Europe.
At the Katowice Major, he was the catalyst behind ENCE’s victory over Winstrike Team, opening the series with a 27-17 performance to help his squad advance in the tournament.
Though he headed home to spend the weekend with his family, it doesn’t seem like Allu is going to miss a game. He indicated on Twitter that he will return to Poland by Wednesday, which will allow him to rejoin his teammates in time for the start of the New Legends Stage.
