The team's roster consists of two influential former BOOM players, while the three others are proven to be fiercely exceptional in the game Valorant. 

In an Instagram video posted by valorantindonesia_1up, Eeyore introduces his teammates and their roles for the VCT 2022 APAC Stage 1 Challenger. Here is the list of the current rosters for Persija Esports:  

  • Nanda "Asteriskk" Rizana as Captain
  • Fikri "Famouz" Zaki as Duelist/Initiator
  • Vicky "Flynchh" Rudianto as Duelist/Initiator
  • Baskoro “Roseaufy” Dwi Putra as Support
  • Kevin “Eeyore” Gunawan as Sentinel 

Eeyore then expresses his gratitude for the opportunity given by Persija esports and mentions his hopes that they can keep moving forward until the Masters round as representatives for Indonesia in APAC international rounds. 

At the end of the video, the ex-BOOM Esports member jokingly says that younger players should be careful of them, the seniors, as they would not hesitate to obliterate them.  

Persija Esports' VCT 2021 APAC Stage 1 Challenger performance so far 

After becoming the runner-up for VCT 2021 Indonesia Stage 1 Challenger, the squad was able to proceed to the main round of VCT 2022 APAC Stage 1 Challenger without going through the Play-Ins. 

Currently, the team has snatched two wins out of three of their games — winning twice in a row against Bonkers 2-1 at the VCT APAC Stage 1: Challengers Playoffs Group Stage Opening (B) last Wednesday. 

The team suffered a 1-2 setback against Paper Rex in the Group Stage Winners (B) on Saturday. However, they were able to win against the Bonkers once again for the Group Stage Decider (B) with a final tally of 2-1 on Sunday, mainly owing to top performance by Famouz with 276 ACS using the Duelist Raze as his main agent. 

Their next match will be held in the Knockout UBQF round against FULL SENSE on Thursday, March 24, 2022, at 10:30 a.m.
