Nigma Galaxy welcomes new blood Mikey and Yuma for Tour 3 DPC

Mikey and Yuma join the TI-winner lineup on Nigma Galaxy for Tour 3 DPC.

The stars have finally aligned for Nigma Galaxy in Tour 3 Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) as the prominent org picks up Yuma and Mikey as its new core players. This follows the departure of Sumail "SumaiL" Hassan and Ammar "ATF" Al-Assaf who went their separate ways.

Nigma Galaxy's Dota 2 roster for Tour 3 DPC is as follows:

  • Yuma "Yuma" Langlet
  • Kasra "Mikey" Mesbah
  • Ivan "MinD_ContRoL" Ivanov
  • Maroun "GH" Merhej 
  • Kuro "KuroKy" Takhasomi

Yuma ditches Division I to join Nigma Galaxy

Nigma Galaxy grabbed the 22-year-old player, Yuma, to fill in the vacant spot in the carry role. Yuma last played for D2 Hustlers in Division II of Western Europe. With the team, he made an impressive run to finish second and earn a promotion to Division I. During the Lower Division stint, Yuma and D2 Hustlers defeated renowned stacks such as Alliance, Old G, and even Team Secret.

Despite earning the promotion, Yuma's move to Nigma Galaxy means that he'll play in Division II next Tour. But it's certainly a stepping stone for the young player to now play alongside TI winners and notable veterans.

Mikey joins Nigma Galaxy following successful stand-in performance

Iranian player, Mikey, is touted as the next star player in Dota 2 and he's already stepping into the zone. For a while now, Mikey has been spotted on top of the European leaderboard, and eyes are laid on the mysterious player.

But not until a month ago, Mikey finally had his breakthrough performance. During DreamLeague S19, he played alongside Shopify Rebellion as a stand-in for Abed and together, they claimed a top-three finish. He also performed incredibly well and the community was excited to see where the 21-year-old will head next. And it's now confirmed that Mikey will now wear the colors of Nigma Galaxy.
