BOOM Esports has been a prominent organisation in the Southeast Asia circuit for quite some time. Primarily known for its Dota 2 roster, BOOM has performed well with regular attendance at S-tier tournaments in the region. The current roster, built around FBZ, consists of Tims, Yopaj, Skem and Tino with the cherry on the top being Mushi as their coach. Inarguably the most prominent SEA Dota personality and a star of his era, Mushi brings in years of international experience with 6 TI appearances and innumerable medals. The roster also has gems like Tims (3 TI Appearances and countless major appearances); Skem, Yopaj, Tino and FBZ who have appeared in majors and minors as well. Looking at the recent performances, it will be exciting to see this roster play in the near future.
“I believe the two brands brought together Boom and Rivalry, have great potential to generate high-quality, entertaining content and overall add great value to the ecosystem. A platform like Rivalry is instrumental in rewarding our hardcore fans who understand our team as well as we do. It also gives our fans another reason to follow our team very closely and benefit directly from the knowledge while enabling them in celebrating our victories with us.” Devesh Kabdwal, CRO of BOOM Esports.
