Team Nigma Galaxy Shakes Up Roster

Nigma Galaxy Shakes Up Roster: Ghost and rmN- Depart Two Weeks After Joining the Team
In an unexpected turn of events, Nigma Galaxy has decided to part ways with Daniel “Ghost” Chan Kok Hong and Roman “rmN-” Paley just two weeks after their recruitment. The announcement comes hot on the heels of the team’s lackluster performance in the qualifiers for BetBoom Dacha Dubai and DreamLeague Season 2022. While the search for an offlaner and position four continues, the organization has confirmed that Miracle-, SumaiL, and KuroKy will continue to be part of the roster. The replacements for Ghost and rmN- are expected to be unveiled before the qualifiers for the upcoming ESL One Birmingham 2024.

In a tweet, Nigma Galaxy stated, “Today we’re parting way with @Ghostdota98 and @rmN_dota. Thank you for joining us and helping us out on such short notice, we wish you all the best.” The message highlights the swift nature of the roster changes that the Dota 2 team has undergone in recent weeks.

Nigma Galaxy’s core roster – Miracle-, SumaiL, and KuroKy – remains unchanged, and the organization expressed confidence in the trio in a separate tweet, stating, “Moving forward with our Dota team, we have faith in our current core roster of KuroKy, Miracle, and Sumail and we’ll be working around them to create a full finalized roster.” The organization also indicated that the updated roster would be revealed before the Birmingham qualifiers.
Nigma’s recruitment of Ghost and rmN- raised eyebrows from the get-go, given their relatively unconventional backgrounds. Ghost, who has primarily played as a carry player throughout his career, was brought on as the new offlaner, while rmN-, who had little competitive experience in recent years, was chosen as the new position four player. Unfortunately, their time with the team was short-lived.
In the closed qualifiers for BetBoom Dacha Dubai, Nigma Galaxy’s performance was wanting as they finished in fourth place. Similarly, they placed fourth in the DreamLeague S22 qualifier, highlighting limitations in drafting and playstyle.
Esports analyst Jane Doe weighed in on the situation, saying, “It’s a shame that Ghost and rmN- didn’t get more time to develop their skills within the team, but Nigma’s competitive record in the last couple of years shows that they’re struggling to find their footing. I hope both players find a fit where they can grow and contribute to their teams.”
These recent departures follow the exits of core players Ivan “MinD_ContRoL” Ivanov and Maroun “GH” Merhej, which already had the community questioning the team’s future prospects. With the ESL One Birmingham 2024 qualifier rapidly approaching, Nigma is under pressure to reveal its new lineup and perform strongly to reassure fans and org partners.
As the esports world continues to evolve, the Dota 2 scene constantly welcomes new talent and experiences roster shuffles. The departure of Ghost and rmN- from Nigma Galaxy signifies not only the constant reshaping of the competitive landscape but also the ongoing quest for success in the world of professional esports. Only time will tell how these changes impact Nigma Galaxy and if its new additions can help propel the team to the heights they’ve been striving for.
