At the very last moment, PSG.LGD had to be replaced by Nigma Galaxy at DreamLeague Season 19. The Chinese team encountered visa issues and was not able to relocate to Europe for the duration of the tournament.

Because this is an online Dota 2 event that will take place on the Western European server, competing from China is just not viable.

Despite the sad news, a lot of European fans will probably rejoice at the prospect of being able to see Kuro “KuroKy” Takhasomi compete again at an S-tier event. It’s been a long time since we’ve last seen him winning something important and this might be one of the last few opportunities he gets.

Nigma Galaxy’s chances at DreamLeague S19

Nigma Galaxy will compete with Amer “Miracle-” Al-Barkawi as their position 1 carry. The formidable Jordanian player will replace Ammar “ATF” Al-Assaf, who’s reportedly healing from a hand injury.

This has become a repetitive theme in esports. Players spend too much time per day competing and develop all kinds of hand-related injuries as a result. Young players should take this as a lesson and take great care not only of their hands but also of their backs.

Gaming may not seem to be a physically demanding activity, but it can still result in injuries if you overdo it without taking care of yourself. That aside, Dota 2 fans will love to see Miracle- in high-level matches again. Hopefully, KuroKy will pick some of his signature heroes for him.

Now that Anti-Mage is a hugely popular hero again, there’s a high chance that Nigma will try to play some AM strategies at this $1 million tournament.

DreamLeague Season 19 starts on April 9 and will last for more than two weeks. During this time, Nigma will compete against some of the world’s best teams. Unfortunately for them, they replaced PSG.LGD and the Chinese team was part of group B.

This is the same group in which Team Liquid, Team Spirit, Talon Esports, and Tundra Esports will play. Not to mention OG and beastcoast, who are not exactly weak either. In their current form, Nigma are expected to perform poorly. But that doesn’t mean they can’t win.

The match format for the first stage of the tournament is best-of-two. This means that at the very least, Nigma can get a lot of draws and perhaps qualify that way. But since only four of the eight teams in group B advance, it will be a massive challenge for them to succeed.
