Nigma Galaxy's Schedule: Tough Opponents and Rivals Ahead

Nigma Galaxy's Schedule: Tough Opponents and Rivals Ahead

Dota 2

Ryan Antony Bernard

With Amer "Miracle-"Al-Barkawi stepping down due to health issues, Nigma Galaxy has been in a tough spot this DPC season. After Team Secret finally took their first win this season against ITB, Nigma Galaxy has dropped down to last place with 4 losses. The upside to this is that they have 3 matches remaining which if they win could possibly turn it around.

ATF Vs OG

The NGX squad with the new addition of Ammar "ATF" Al-Assaf to replace Amer 'Miracle-'Al-Barkawi for the time being has not yet acquired a win this DPC Season. Although, this squad of TI champs & ATF have managed to take a game off the reigning TI champs, Tundra Esports which only 2 other teams were able to do so far.  OG, being Ammar's old team will be a tough opponent as they know the could easily predict Ammar's way of playing and his hero pool. Will Ammar's Huskar be the answer for them as well ? Or will Kuroky switch up his draft to keep OG on their feet ? Let's find out today.

Kuroky & Puppey: Rivals!

Yes! The rivalry continues. These two captains have been going at it for many years now and they bring together their new squads to clash again. However, this time both teams seem to be suffering losses with Clement "Puppey" Ivanov in the lead. Although Kuro "KuroKy" Takhasomi has beat Puppey in the past to go on and win the TI7 championship, Puppey had jokingly stated in his latest winning interview that the upcoming match with Kuroky is "scripted" and he's "doing it for the money". These two veteran Dota2 players have a deep love for the game and strong competitive experience to beat the other. This will definitely be a hyped match to watch to as both teams need to win to earn a spot in the upcoming Lima major.

Nigma Galaxy Vs Entity

Entity has faced NGX before the DPC and got a 2-0 victory against them in the BetBoom Xmas Show all while using a stand-in. Entity currently holds 2 wins under their belt this DPC, while NGX are yet to figure out their winning strategy. Having more or less figured out their playstyle this DPC Entity has managed to hold their spot in Division1 so far, but Nigma Galaxy do not have a choice other than to force a win.

What to expect from Nigma Galaxy

While the wins have not been stable for the past two TI's, this team has years of experience with its members and a deep understanding of each player and their style as a whole. Nigma Galaxy needs 3 consecutive wins in the upcoming matches in order to stay in Division 1 and get a chance to participate in the upcoming major. Even though this task is hard with the current state the team is in, Kuroky can always bring it back with his drafting skills and with such highly skilled players at his disposal, they can once again assert dominance in Dota2.
