BOOM had a promising start this year but fell into 5th place of the DPC 2020-2021 season 1 league and then even further behind in the 2nd season, finishing with a 7th place result. In the SEA TI10 qualifiers, they picked up a bit of momentum and were able to hustle to the lower bracket finals where they were overwhelmed 2:1 by TNC.
