Budimeister Out, Monyet In? Boom Esports Seeks Fresh Talent for VCT Challengers Split 2

Share This Post

After more than 7 months together, Boom Esports Valorant has decided to bid farewell to the youngster Oliver “budimeister” Wangge, embarking on a quest for a suitable replacement in anticipation of VCT Challengers 2024 Indonesia Split 2. Intriguingly, the pursuit of a fresh player has ignited speculations surrounding promising prospects, with Paper Rex’s rising star Cahya “Monyet” Nugraha among those in the spotlight.

Budimeister’s exit from Boom Esports comes as a shock, especially considering his noteworthy performance during the VCT Challengers ID Split 1 back in March. Despite encountering challenges, his team soared to the finals, but eventually succumbed to defeat against Alter Ego, which bolstered by his former comrade Thomas “Cud” Alfiantino.

With Split 2 looming on the horizon, expected to begin after the conclusion of VCT Pacific Stage 1 next month, the quest for a replacement who can swiftly adapt to its strategies poses as a formidable challenge for the team. Consequently, Boom has embarked on an intensive scouting mission within the Indonesian Valorant scene, in search of budding talents capable of seamlessly integrating into the ranks.

Among the rising stars speculated to step into Budimeister’s shoes, the 18-year-old Monyet has emerged as a prime candidate, catching the attention of Boom’s fans. Social media murmurs have fueled the speculation, with one Valorant Indonesia community account even spotting him in the company of Boom’s Hildegard “Shiro” Arnaldo.

At the time of this writing, both Boom and Monyet have remained tight-lipped, refraining from disclosing any kind of agreements that might happened between them. Nonetheless, the prospect of Monyet joining the squad on loan holds merit, especially in light of his recent status as an unused substitute for PRX following the return of Wang “Jinggg” Jie.

Since joining the Singapore team back in September 2023, Monyet has been proving that he’s got some serious untapped talent. Although he hit a bit of a rough patch during the Pacific Kickoff 2024, he redeemed himself by wowing viewers at Masters Madrid with his great performance. Teaming up with Boom Esports could totally be his ticket to leveling up his game until PRX decides to put him back in the lineup.
