The El Classico fight between OG and Nigma Galaxy witnessed the stars glow brighter than flowers, and in the post-match interview, Kuroky sent N0tail a simple message.

The first Playoffs matchup of the Gamers Galaxy Invitational witnessed the new generation of OG against the Dota 2 veterans, Nigma Galaxy (NGX). Below the surface of this matchup, Dota 2 fans were excited to see an El Classico between two of the best captains in the world, Kuroky, and N0tail.

While N0tail is no longer competing, he leads the team from afar and his OG spirit is very much alive. And this time around, he was on the casting deck to give some flowery commentary – which of course was non-biased. *cough

The matchup was nothing but ceaseless action all over the map. OG showcased some amazing plays but Nigma Galaxy was on another level. One would even look at their form and get immense deja vu of TI7 Team Liquid, looking absolutely monstrous. Following their top-notch performance, Kuroky and the boys defeated OG 2-0 and Kuroky delivered a simple message to the sunflower of OG.

Kuroky sends a message to N0tail

As if the games weren’t spicy enough, the post-match interview with Kuroky added a cherry on top. Kyle threw in a bunch of questions to the captain, firstly asking him what it feels like to play on LAN. “We are very happy. These are real games for us, this is the real Dota. Online games are just not real games I guess. Too many problems.”

Kyle then proceeded to ask Kuroky if he has anything to say to his fans and N0tail, who just witnessed first-hand the heavy defeat.

He thanked his fans for watching the match and then sent a message to the boss of OG.

For Johan (N0tail), sorry man, if you want to beat me, you have to come into the game.

Kuroky has a point. The two indeed matched up against each other a gazillion times before but during TI9 finals, N0tail led OG to defeat Kuroky’s squadron. N0tail is currently on a competitive break but perhaps Kuroky’s words could spark a deep dormant flame. We could only hope..

More Dota 2 for the day!

It is only the first Playoffs series for the tournament and more will follow! After NGX’s win, they proceed to the Upper Bracket’s Final and will meet the winner of BOOM Esports vs Tundra Esports.
