BOOM Esports, a prominent name in the Dota 2 esports scene, has officially announced the disbandment of its current roster. This move marks the end of an era and the beginning of a new chapter for the organization.
The declaration was made live on the podcast “BOOM Talk Vol. 09: Dota 2? MAK LO DISBAND,” bringing attention to the difficulties the crew was having adjusting to the most recent patch. A significant contributing aspect of this choice was the unable to transfer success from practice matches to major competitions.
Gary “Natshuba” Ongko Putera, the founder of BOOM Esports, confirmed that the organization currently has no members signed to its Dota 2 roster, indicating a complete overhaul. This strategic move suggests a fresh start for BOOM Esports, with an eye on building a team that can better adapt to the evolving dynamics of Dota 2.
Farewell to Star Players
The departure of key players marked a poignant moment for the organization. Star carry John “Natsumi-” Vargas was among those who left, with BOOM Esports expressing gratitude for his significant contributions. The exit of other players like Ye “BoBoKa” Zhibiao and Chung “Ws” Wei Shen, who played pivotal roles in the team’s journey, was also acknowledged.
With only one undisclosed player currently signed to the roster, BOOM Esports stands at a crossroads. The Dota 2 community is keenly watching to see how the organization will rebuild its team, especially with the ESL One Kuala Lumpur Open Qualifiers just around the corner.
