BOSS Strengthens Roster: PwnAlone Joins as Permanent Member Amid Tragic Circumstances

BOSS has finalized their roster with the addition of Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue, formerly of Party Astronauts and EG White, as announced by team coach Tommy "Axed" Ryan.

Just two weeks ago, PwnAlone declared a break from competitive play following vagrants' failure to qualify for the Americas RMR. Notably, he achieved success with EG White, securing a victory at Fragadelphia 17 in September 2022.

The online tournament, featuring prominent teams like NRG, Wildcard, and Nouns, is set to commence on February 1. reports that initially, BOSS encountered resistance from PGL and Valve in their request for an emergency substitute but eventually gained approval due to the exceptional circumstances surrounding cynic's passing.
