ENCORE player Tom "stonde" Glad has announced that he is taking a break from competitive gaming.
Tom "stonde" Glad broke the news about his sudden inactivity via Twitter, where he now describes himself as "a former competitive CS player".
Questioned by a fellow Twitter user about his updated profile information, the Finnish player revealed that he does not have "the time or the motivation" to compete against the best", so he is taking "a break from competitive gaming."

This means that ENCORE's roster is now depleted to just three players following the departure of Taneli "disturbed" Veikkola, who is also taking a break from competition, earlier on Wednesday.
The former 3DMAX team, who are currently on the lookout for a new organisation to represent, are now down to the following three-man lineup:
Jesse "KHRN" Grandell
Mikko "xartE" Välimaa
Niko "naSu" Kovanen
