felps benched in BOOM
The 23-year-old player is out of the active roster after expressing his desire to pursue other options.
João "felps" Vasconcellos's nine months as an active BOOM player have come to an end, as the former MIBR and SK player is placed on the bench of the Indonesian organization after communicating that he wants to leave the team.
As felps is on his way out, BOOM have been spotted practicing with Fernando "fer" Alvarenga, who was released by MIBR on Tuesday. Meanwhile, according to a report by DBLTAP, felps is looking to become a part of a new project led by Epitacio "TACO" de Melo and Ricardo "dead" Sinigaglia.
The organization added that the remaining players remain committed "to this organization and each other, and are excited to continue their unprecedented success". Since entering the "online era" in March, BOOM have been dominant in the Brazilian scene, winning 70 maps from 83 played, and claiming eight event wins in a row.
According to DBLTAP's report, felps is leaving BOOM behind to become a part of TACO's project, where he could also link up with 17-year-old Brazilian prospects Bruno "latto" Rebelatto and Eduardo "dumau" Wolkmer.
