While with the Hungry Beast squad, frostmind helped the team in maintaining its place in VLR.gg’s top five ranks in APAC. BOOM Esports kicked off their VCT 2022 season with a bang, winning the VCT Indonesia Stage 1 Challengers trophy and qualifying for the VCT APAC Stage 2 Challengers after finishing third in the VCT Indonesia Stage 2 Challengers.
“Thank you to everyone who has been supporting me since the start of my time here and good luck to them moving forward,” frostmind wrote on Twitter. “Hopefully I will be back and see what the future holds for me.”
