BOOT-d[S] announce new roster

BOOT-d[S] have announced an overhaul of their CS:GO roster.

The changes see a familiar face return to the starting roster in Benedict "⁠Benkai⁠" Tan, while coach Alexandre "⁠alecks⁠" Salle will officially transition to a player role, taking over the in-game leadership of the squad.

As for the final adjustment to the quintet, Anthony "⁠ImpressioN⁠" Lim will be taking on a backup role, with Malaysian player Khalish "⁠d4v41⁠" Rusyaidee, formerly of FrostFire, coming in his stead.

ImpressioN will assume a backup role on BOOT-d[S]

The adjustment comes after a lull period for BOOT-d[S], who played their last official match on December 23 in the StarLadder Season 7 Asia Qualifier, failing to qualify for the event in Shanghai after losing to BTRG.IMBA in Group D's decider match.

"We went through a period with mixed results last year and while it's never fun to lose, I do believe that we learned some valuable lessons," BOOT-d[S] CGO Harley "dsn" Orvall said in a statement.

"With our new roster, I believe that we added back some of the firepower that we lacked late last year in acquiring "d4v41" and slotting "Benkai" back into the lineup. Furthermore, we now have a new bellwether in "alecks", tasked with leading our young roster in-game.

We just need to remember to be humble about the fact that there's a lot of work to be done in order for us to squeeze out the maximum potential of our roster. Get a little bit better and learn something new every day is our mantra moving forward. I would also like to thank FrostFire for their professionalism in dealing with the acquisition of "d4v41".

With these changes, BOOT-d[S] now have the following squad:

Singapore Alexandre "⁠alecks⁠" Salle
Singapore Benedict "⁠Benkai⁠" Tan
Singapore Leslie "⁠Bobosaur⁠" Soen
Singapore Nevin "⁠splashske⁠" Aw
Malaysia Khalish "⁠d4v41⁠" Rusyaidee

Singapore Anthony "⁠ImpressioN⁠" Lim (backup)
