Although TI9 hasn’t even started yet, and the traditional big shuffle after the most important tournament of the year is quite far ahead, BOOM ID are already looking into roster adjustments for the next competitive season.
The Indonesian organization released today a lengthy player profile video for Tri “Jhocam” Kuncoro, who for the past two years remained loyal to BOOM ID. His professional career started back in July 2017 with BOOM ID and he never played under a different banner until now. Through his two years stint with the Indonesian team, Jhocam earned $29,047 in tournament prizes, but undoubtedly, his best records came through this past year.
In the 2018-2019 Dota Pro Circuit season, BOOM ID qualified to three Minor tournaments, however, they weren’t able to clinch a spot to any of the Majors this season. Their best performance was at OGA Dota PIT Minor, where they finished top six. With Fnatic and TNC Predator qualified for TI9 via DPC points, the regional qualifiers battle seemed to be at first between BOOM ID and Mineski, but with a few weeks before the regionals were set to start, a stack of well-established South Korean players joined by Nico “Gunnar” Lopez and Nuengnara “23savage” Teeramahanon, a 17-year-old carry player from Thailand, caused havoc in both group stage and playoffs.
BOOM ID didn’t make it out of the TI9 SEA qualifiers group stage and ended the season on a disappointing note. Today, they make their first roster change by waving goodbye to Tri “Jhocam” Kuncoro and it remains to be seen if they have more adjustments on their mind or if the team will have to look just for a support player going into the next season.
BOOM ID current roster:
- Rafli Fathur “Mikoto” Rahman
- Randy Muhammad “Dreamocel” Sapoetra
- Saieful “Fbz” Ilham
- Alfi “Khezcute” Nelphyana
