Indonesian Esports organization BOOM Esports has recently announced its new Dota 2 roster for the 2024 season. With a shift in focus to South America, the team has put together an all-Peruvian lineup, with the exception of the mid laner position which is currently vacant. The roster comprises both existing and new talent, along with the addition of a new coach.
Meet the New Roster
The revamped roster for BOOM Esports’ Dota 2 team includes:
– Christian “Pakazs” Savina as the carry
– Mario “LittleBoy” Valdivia as the offlaner, formerly with Thunder Awaken
– Rodrigo “n1ght” Cruz, also from Thunder Awaken, in a yet-to-be-filled mid laner role
– Jose “Panda” Padilla, previously with Evil Geniuses
– Juan David “Vintage” Angulo Nicho, the coach who has experience with Evil Geniuses and Wawitas Sagazes
The CEO of BOOM Esports, Gary Ongko Putera, has confirmed the team’s entry into a tournament in January 2024, where they will not use a stand-in but instead feature a trial player who may potentially become a permanent part of the team.
In a podcast interview, CEO Ongko explained, “The lineup is not fully complete. We’re not using a stand-in. It’s more like a trial, so he’s not officially part of the team yet. It depends on whether he wants to sign.”
