BOOM Tims Exploring Other Opportunities for the 2022/2023 DPC Season
The post-TI (The International) roster shuffle season continues as Boom Esports' support player Timothy "Tims'' Randrup announced that he’s open to exploring different options as his contract with Boom is coming to an end. While Boom Esports did have a good Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) season, its performance at TI11(The International 2022) was disappointing to say the least, with the team achieving a top-twelve finish after almost being eliminated during the group stage.
As of now, the rest of the team's contract situation is still unknown. However, we can expect more announcements regarding the 2022/2023 DPC roster soon either from the players or the organization itself.
Tims to pursue other opportunities as contract with Boom ends
With TI11 concluded, the Dota 2 community has been keeping an eye out for roster changes and rumors as the off-season began. While some teams are currently on their well-deserved break following the tournament, a handful of teams have already started preparing for the upcoming season. Some of them are also looking to completely rebuild their rosters or invest in a different region altogether.
One such team is Southeast Asia's (SEA) Boom Esports, as it might be on the hunt for a new support player with Timothy "Tims" Randrup's contract close to an end. The Filipino support announced earlier today on Twitter that he’s open to negotiate with other teams following his contract expiration.
Despite the announcement, the player is still negotiating his contract renewal with the Indonesian organization. But, it seems unlikely that he shall stay with Boom Esports for the upcoming 22/23 DPC season.
Notably, there was a similar situation with former T1 offlaner Kuku "Kuku" Palad, who recently announced that he'll be pursuing other opportunities after his contract with T1 ended.
With the SEA region-based teams expected to undergo rebuilds following the regional teams' performances at its home TI, many other teams including T1, Talon Esports and even Fnatic could likely follow Tims' situation closely, should they also undergo roster changes.
As of now, the contract status with Souliya "JaCkky" Khoomphetsavong, Erin "Yopaj" Ferrer, Saieful "Fbz" Ilham and Rolen "skem" Ong remains unknown.
