B.O.O.T-DREAM[S]CAPE undergo roster overhaul


The overhaul sees familiar faces return to the lineup with Benedict “Benkai” Tan and coach Alexandre “alecks” Salle who will be now assuming a player role and take over the in-game leadership of the squad.

For the final change,  Anthony “ImpressioN” Lim will be moving to a backup position, with Malaysian player Ahmad “d4v41” Khalish Rusyaidee Bin Nordin, of FrostFire, filling in his boots.

The adjustment comes after a dry period for BOOT-d[S], who played last on December 23 in the StarLadder Season 7 Asia Qualifier where they failed to make it to the main event in Shanghai after being beaten by BTRG.IMBA in Group D’s decider match.

BOOT-d[S] CGO Harley “dsn” Orvall said in a statement, “We went through a period with mixed results last year and while it’s never fun to lose, I do believe that we learned some valuable lessons.With our new roster, I believe that we added back some of the firepower that we lacked late last year in acquiring “d4v41” and slotting “Benkai” back into the lineup.

Furthermore, we now have a new bellwether in “alecks”, tasked with leading our young roster in-game.We just need to remember to be humble about the fact that there’s a lot of work to be done in order for us to squeeze out the maximum potential of our roster. Get a little bit better and learn something new every day is our mantra moving forward. I would also like to thank FrostFire for their professionalism in dealing with the acquisition of “d4v41.””

With these changes, BOOT-d[S] now stand as:

  • Alexandre “alecks” Salle
  • Benedict “Benkai” Tan
  • Leslie “Bobosaur” Soen
  • Nevin “splashske” Aw
  • Ahmad “d4v41” Khalish Rusyaidee Bin Nordin
  • Anthony “ImpressioN” Lim (backup)
