While the CEO of BOOM Esports earlier suggested that the team will not "kick" any players, according to his most recent tweet, some adjustments may be in the works.
According to natshuba, a former BOOM Esports member is going to rejoin the team. He also posted the part of a player's signature leaving the community to make their guesses.
BOOM Esports was relegated to Division II after a poor DPC SEA 2023 Tour 1: Division I performance.

After a drastic drop from last season, the leading Dota 2 team in Southeast Asia (SEA), BOOM Esports, was relegated to Division II in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) Southeast Asia (SEA) 2023 Tour 1: Division I. The roster had undergone some changes ahead of the new season, but with some of the best players in the region coming into the mix, the seventh place finish was not in the realm of expectation. While Gary "natshuba" Ongko had previously denied that the team would "kick" any players in the aftermath of this performance, according to his latest tweet, some changes might be taking place. A former BOOM Esports member is expected to rejoin the squad, according to natshuba.

BOOM Esports may have a previous member rejoin the team

Natshuba tends to tweet quite a bit about BOOM's Dota 2 team and his recent two tweets, one of which included a signature, have led fans to wonder who the new player might be.

There have been a few guesses posted in the Comments, including Brizio "Hyde" Budiana and Randy "Dreamocel" Sapoetra, but so far nothing concrete has been revealed.

This tweet comes as a surprise since according to natshuba previously, the team was not going to leave any players out after the recent subpar performance, and called on the community to stop the talks and drama related to BOOM's roster.

At the same time, it could still very well mean that a player has left BOOM and is moving on to explore other opportunities, or the member rejoining could be someone who joins the coaching/analytics team where Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung currently serves as the head coach.

Multiple players have been a part of BOOM during the previous six years, with the bulk being from Indonesia. Meanwhile, Souliya "JaCkky" Khoomphetsavong, Timothy "TIMS" Randrup, and Rolen "skem" Ong are three players that no longer play for BOOM after performing well last year with the roster, with the highlight being a victory at the GAMERS GALAXY: Invitational Series Dubai 2022.

It will be interesting to watch when BOOM publishes its full lineup for the upcoming season, as there is still a long time until Division II of the next Tour begins. In the meanwhile, natshuba may toss some more hints at the fans as part of his usual shenanigans.

Simultaneously, in the run-up to Division II, there will most likely be third-party events in SEA in which BOOM might participate to gauge how the team is fairing.
