B.O.O.T-d[S] announced its new roster yesterday which is a mixture of new players along with some old ones. The roster was announced via their facebook page observing quite a heavy shuffle.
B.O.O.T-d[S] had announced the departure of both Kumaresan ‘Tommy’ Ramani and Benjamin ‘moxie’ Kou from its line-up, back in January due to a string of poor performances. Finally, after a month the organization has announced a complete roster which looks pretty solid.
The team has announced the arrival of Benedict ‘benkai’ Tan and Khalish ‘d4v41’ Rusyaidee, as Leslie ‘Bobosaur’ Soen replaces Anthony ‘ImpressioN’ Lim to take a permanent spot in the line-up, while ImpressioN moves to a backup position. The final player to join the roster is none other than Alexander ‘alecks’ Sallé, who has moved from his position of being a coach to that of a player.
Khalish ‘d4v41’ Rusyaidee, the young Malaysian who is just 20 years old is the most promising player in the FrostFire line-up which has now been acquired by B.O.O.T, he has a lot of potential and will be a great addition to the team.
Benedict ‘benkai’ Tan, on the other hand, had left the team last year to serve in the Singaporean Army and is very lucky to have been granted a flexible schedule so as to pursue his career as an esport athlete.
The changes have been made to attain consistency in regional events and to qualify for more international events so as to attain more experience while representing the SEA region at a global level.
Harley ‘DSN’ Orvall, the Chief Gaming Officer of the organization had a few words to say,
"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"."
The following is the final line-up for B.O.O.T-d[S] for the 2019 season along with the role that will be carried out by the player,
