Kevin “Eeyore” Gunawan and coach Baskoro Dwi “roseau” Putra will be making a comeback to Alter Ego for the upcoming 2024 season after helping them to a second runners-up in VCL Indonesia Split 2.
INDONESIA – Alter Ego have announced the return of Kevin “Eeyore” Gunawan and coach Baskoro Dwi “roseau” Putra to their starting lineup for 2024, teaming up once more with two of their former teammates in Bryan “Gemma” Setiawan and Alehandro “Nakya” Simanjorang.
The duo is making their way back to Alter Ego after parting ways in July following the end of their season on the Challengers Indonesia circuit with a runners-up finish in VCL Indonesia Split 2.
Eeyore was initially brought in alongside coach roseau and Nanda “asteriskk” Rizana in March for the aforementioned tournament following a modest 5-6th place finish in VCL Indonesia Split 1.
