Ohaiyo Officially Joins BOOM Esports as Its New Analyst
BOOM Esports has officially announced that former RSG coach, and a legend of the Southeast Asian (SEA) region, Khoo "Ohaiyo" Chong Xin will be joining the team as an analyst. The roster had previously undergone changes during the off-season, however nobody expected the team to end up in seventh place during the Winter Tour of the SEA Dota Pro Circuit (DPC).
While the CEO of BOOM Esports, he noted that a former member of the organization will be re-joining them ahead of the Spring Tour.
The Mushi-Ohaiyo chemistry returns
“You thought he left? 👀 Our analyst, Ohaiyo, emerges back to the squad as he will aid us in our conquest of climbing back to Division 1! He will work hard along our Dota 2 squad for the upcoming season! “ BOOM Esports announced on Twitter.
Earlier in the month, Natshuba noted that the organization will not change its roster for the foreseeable future as he wanted to have faith in the team. However, he did tease that the squad would add a former member of the team to help in their conquest to return to Division I.
At first, many within the community posted their guesses in the comments by saying that it could be either Brizio "Hyde" Budiana and Randy "Dreamocel" Sapoetra. However, following the announcement it became clear that BOOM Esports is putting its faith in the current roster to bounce back.
Ohaiyo spent the majority of the last season coaching RSG, which improved tremendously as the season progressed. The organization was almost within reach of a spot in the TI11 (The International 2022) Last Chance Qualifiers, however it was ultimately denied the chance by Polaris Esports.
However, Ohaiyo was recruited by his former colleague Chai "Mushi" Yee Fung to become BOOM Esports’ analyst at TI11. Despite the team’s lackluster performance at TI11, Ohaiyo was given the opportunity to officially join the team as its new analyst for the rest of the season.
