Former TNC Predator Captain Boomy Joins Polaris Esports’ Dota 2 Roster
Marvin "Boomy" Rushton (also known as "Boombacs"), former captain of TNC Predator, has joined Polaris Esports' Dota 2 roster as the fifth and final player. Polaris Esports announced on Facebook that Boomy will now become a permanent member of the squad and the captain as well after having played as the team's stand-in during the ongoing BTS Pro Series Season 8: Southeast Asia. Boomy became a free agent on 15th Sept, 2021, when he, along with the rest of TNC Predator's roster, parted ways with the organization.
Boomy will captain the Dota 2 roster of Polaris Esports
“We are excited to finally share with everyone that our roster is now complete with the arrival of our friend and captain, Marvin "Boomy" Rushton,” Polaris Esports said upon announcing its new leader.
Polaris Esports announced its first four members on 7th Sept 2021, and now that Boomy has been added, the team's final lineup is as follows:
John Anthony "Natsumi-" Vargas
Mc Nicholson "Mac" Villanueva
Nikko "Nikko" Bilocura
Marvin "Boomy" Rushton
Bryle "cml" Jacob Alviso
After six months with TNC Predator, Boomy recently parted ways with the organization. This period saw the team finish second in the second season of the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) and then finish 7th-8th at the WePlay AniMajor. However, the team did not earn enough DPC points to secure a direct invite to TI10 and also failed to qualify via the qualifiers. After that, the team was placed on inactive status and later disbanded.
In the ongoing BTS Pro Series S8, Boomy has already played five series as Polaris Esports’ stand-in.
“This roster is indeed similar to their previous Adroit squad which came to an abrupt end. We as an organization together with the team felt that this was an unfinished business and believed could've gone further. So here we are under a new name and management but with the same goals,” said CEO of Polaris Esports, Khasim Mirza.
Polaris Esports has a similar roster to Adroit Esports, which disbanded in November 2020. Only Justine Ryan Evangelista "Tino" Grimaldo, who was on the roster then, will not be competing with the team this time. Natsumi- will be the carry. Natsumi- was also a member of Adroit Esports for more than a year before the team was disbanded.
At the time of writing this article, Polaris Esports is currently competing in its sixth series in the BTS Pro Series Season 8.
