While it is true that the Dota 2 competitive scene is in a rushed offseason, the first qualifying tournament for the next event after TI 12 is underway. However, some teams have not yet defined their squads for the next season.
Similarly, in the last few hours, the organization offered an official statement on their social networks that undoubtedly fed much more doubts, rumors, and reports since they left many questions in the air.
If we analyze and observe the 2023 season of Nigma Galaxy, we do not doubt that it was disappointment after disappointment. This team failed to qualify for TI 12 and finished in last place in the standings at the BetBoom Dacha. Now, the organization has made some announcements regarding their Dota 2 squad.
Nigma Galaxy shares an announcement regarding their Dota 2 squad
Through a post on X, Nigma Galaxy released an official statement regarding what is currently happening with their Dota 2 squad. The organization details only that they are “finalizing” their lineup heading into the upcoming season and that they are “excited” for what “is to come.”
We know everyone wants to know what’s happening with our Dota roster. All we can say right now is that we’re still finalizing our roster and that we’re excited for things to come!

In addition, they also share an image where they “answer” some of the questions the community has asked the most through social networks. There is no doubt that this post does not meet the community’s expectations and much less of the Nigma Galaxy fans since they were expected to share much more information.
Nigma Galaxy went from being a powerhouse in Dota 2 to just another team in the pack, especially after the retirement of Amer “Miracle-” Al-Barkawi in December 2022. From that moment on, Nigma’s squad went into free fall to the point that they failed to play a single Major.
Even though this team had a roster with very talented and experienced players such as Kuro “KuroKy” Salehi Takhasomi, Sumail “SumaiL” Hassan, and Ivan “MinD_ContRoL” Ivanov, among others, throughout 2023, they failed to succeed in any of the competitions.
Nigma seems to be at a very important point in its history, as let’s remember that Valve eliminated the DPC. As a result, the experience and talent of the team’s roster can help it be at the top in the main events.
There are many unknowns regarding the 2024 Nigma Galaxy roster. There is talk of KuRoKy and Miracle returning to the team’s starting lineup. However, the organization said it will reveal its lineup for next season in mid-December.
