Following the completed list of qualifying teams from Europe, the SEA qualifiers take center stage. And the first team to successfully secure a slot at the Major is Indonesian team BOOM ID after going through an undefeated run.

The team received a direct invite to the closed qualifiers of the Kiev Minor after their impressive performance at the DreamLeague Season 11 Stockholm Major SEA Qualifiers. They finished the tournament in 3rd place. Prior to these big events, BOOM ID also attended their first DPC appearance at the Bucharest Minor, but they only ended with a 7th to 8th place finish and garnered 28 DPC points.
At the beginning of Kiev’s Minor qualifiers, BOOM ID immediately executed strategies to get ahead of the competition and surpass other SEA representatives. They passed the entire playoffs without a single loss, defeating DeToNator and Lotac twice in the process. Currently, they are the sole SEA team at the Kiev Minor.
